The Cat Wouldn’t Even Bring This In.

I thought that the wearing pajamas out trend was ending its awful reign.  It appears that I am wrong unfortunately.  Also, on that same train is girls (young ladies) saying that if their boyfriends really loved them they would accept their laid back looks, ie. no makeup and those dreaded sweats.  Ladies, let me ask you this.  If your man was in a constant state of dishevel, would you let it pass or would you speak up ?  Remember this, you are dating, you are not married 25 years.  Both of you can easily catch the eye of someone else.  This is your boyfriend not your mum, not your little brother.  You looked your best when you caught each other in the beginning, shouldn’t you put about 5 minutes into letting him see you presentable.  We are not talking glam-fairy here, we are talking a little mascara, if you have to, pull your hair into a pony, a clean t-shirt and jeans.  Please ladies, I am so tired of seeing this really cute guy that takes a little pride in how the world sees him with ‘pajama girl’.  Remember the woo-hoo girls ?  Hummm….is this her on her dates ?


Does This Make My Butt Look Big ?

Not everyone can get away with having a big butt.  Sometimes it’s just big. Just because you may be a little more curvaceous doesn’t mean you need to give up skirts. Opt for skirts or dresses that have an a-line cut. An a-line cut is simply a skirt that is smaller around the waist and gently flares out, much like the letter “A.” By wearing a cut like this, it will minimize your middle region, including your rear view. Choose slacks and jeans that have wide legs, no pants that taper at the ankles. This makes your ankles and calves appear smaller while enhancing the size of your bottom, which is the opposite of the effect you are trying to achieve. Pick slacks and jeans that remain wide towards the calf and ankles, like flare or boot-cut pants. Overall, the best minimizing effect is to enhance your upper half with bright, flattering colors while keeping your lower half darker.  Not rocket science just color science.

Dreams Do Come True

There are so many designers with clothing I absolutely love.  Unfortunately on a working-girl’s budget I can’t buy them all.  I see a great Bagdley Mischka dress I just have to have, then I see the latest Christian Siriano design and I want that one.  What is a girl to do.  To the rescue is Rent The Runway, a girl’s best friend.  You get the most amazing clothing and jewelry from the top designers.  For about 10% of the actual price of the clothing, Rent The Runway lets you pick the dress for your ocassion, gets it to you on time, and you simply mail it back to them afterwards.  I LOVE this place.  I have the real deal that would have cost me a month’s salary for $150 to wear to my special occassion. I simply can’t thank Rent The Runway enough for making a fashionista’s dreams come true.  Here’s a sampling of what you can find at

Matthew Williamson, Retail $2,500 Rental $250

Lela Rose, Retail $1,295 Rental $150

Yigal Azrouel, Retail $1,600 Rental $200

Kenneth Jay Lane, Retail $450 Rental $65
