Summer dress throw down! Max vs. Cut out vs high low Oh My!

So there are some trends going on this summer which I've steered clear of, one of them being the "High Low" dress trend, mostly because this would mean revealing any upper leg which at this point I'm not prepared to do, however for those braver than I and those looking for fashion foward way to wear this seasons hottest new dresses I've scoured the net for advice, pics and some the cutest dresses from Evansusa.com. You can find each dress on their website from $34-40.




The Original Maxi

The original summer staple in a bold colorful print. Meant to be worn with beachy hair and bangles. We fell in love with Maxi dresses because they are so easy to wear, but solids can sometimes feel like too much or can fall flat, with bold prints and patterns in this seasons Maxi's you can go from shopping to strutting you stuff on the beach bar dance floor, just switch up the acessorie to go from day to night! Bangles only during the day to keep it simply and at night just add a simple gold necklace or hoops. You're set to party like a rockstar on vacay.
The "Pop Star"
This dress gives instant shape by creating the "V" in the bottom of the dress and giving coverage to the arms
without covering them up, the body hugging fit for this dress creates beautiful curves.
The Hi-Low
This is the much adored and equalled feared hi-lo maxi dress. This one hits just right above the knee
so it's perfect for leg flashing phobics like myself. The top is contructed with a great empire diadem waist.
The color blocking is a beautiful combination of blues thats' remiscent of the ocean.




The moral of the story is that no matter what trends are going on in the non-stop world of fashion, you have to do what makes you comfortable. If something just doesn't work for you and you're uncomfortable no matter how trendy it is, your unease will translate into your posture, you speech and your attitude. Remember the whole point of fashion is to make you feel beautiful, the perfect outfit can give you confidence, bring out the fierceness in you and make you feel like you can conquer the world. Just remember fashion is about how things make you feel and not about how someone says you should. Until next time lovelies,

Overcoming the "I'm too fat for this."

I have not been posting lately due to many reasons, I'm back in school, I'm working full time again and I've been stuck in a depressive cycle in which I overeat, condemn myself for being a glutton tell myself I'll never amount to anything and then overeat again to make myself feel better. Wow, that sound really crazy when I say it like that. But so many women I know have told me the go through exactly the same thing. We lie awake at night thinking about all the terrible things we did to our bodies that day. I had McDonalds and Taco Bell all in the same day; word to the wise don't do this.

Tomorrow I have to go out networking, normally this is a chance for me to increase our connections or strengthen ones we already have and hopefully broker us more deals in the process but really it's about relationship building and frankly I've been pretty terrible at it lately. Why has my performance decreased so drastically? Because I don't think I deserve to be ther…

Becoming a Fashion Grown up-Chubby Girl In the World Style

Ok, I'll admit it I'm getting old, on Dec. 7th of this year I will be 29! (Silent freak out). What's worse is I'm now a grown up with an early not mid-twenties closet. I feel like I've outgrown the major retailers and need to move on, I'm ready for a more mature fashion relationship but I have fashion issues.
 My key fashion issues:

Short leg, longer torsoBottom heavy in all the wrong placeswhat I call "marshmallow syndrome"- If clothes are too tight, it looks like I'm a sausage, if too loose they not shape at all. So does any of this sound familiar? Here's the advice that has actually worked for me over the years and if I had unlimited funds this is the wardrobe I would create, I' a size 28 which is considered "super sized" so for the sake of argument I'll include designers that stop at size 26 but note them with an asterisk*. Nothing is worse than reading a that one page of Marie Claire dedicated to Plus fashion and realizin…
