Find the Perfect Swimsuit for the Not So Perfect Body

img-thingSummer is quickly on it’s way, it will be hear before you know it! So it’s time to think about the perfect swimsuit for those hot summer days at the pool. Some of us do dread this though. If you are a skinny minny that looks fabulous in bikinis, (with the risk of sounding bitter LOL) good for you, but, this post is NOT for you!

I’m here to talk to girls such as myself. How can I put this delicately… girls who may or may not need to loose 20lbs or more, who have an after baby-pouch, who have developed cellulite, who need support for their tattas cause they’ve spent the last 6 months breast feeding their infants, who may have stretch marks all over their once perfect body from having gained 30-50lbs within a 9 month period, who perhaps were bikini wearers at one point, but now would rather die then show their midriff, Continue reading

I also get inspired by 50s Pin-Up fashion. But this deserves a post all of it’s own. I was going to write about it here, but I have too much to say, so I will leave that to another time.

So I tend to not wear dresses that are per say “trendy”… but timeless. Well I shouldn’t say never, but at least for those big life occasions, from my own wedding dress to a dress I wore to my daughter’s baptism, I go for Continue reading

One is Better Then Two for Spring 2009

If you are in the market for a dress for a wedding or a special occasion, consider getting your self a one-shoulder dress and show off those sexy shoulders and back! The one-shoulder dress trend has been on the rise. The asymmetric neckline is striking and bold and is coming back. Yes I said coming back as in it’s been here before… the trend is not a new one to fashion, it has been around for thousands of years, back when Greek goddesses were draped in togas. Now a days we have a lot more to choose from then just the toga look.

Here are some of my favorite celebrity one-shoulder looks for inspiration:
