Dress Like A Celebrity- Kate Moss

What I adore about Kate Moss is her chic sense of style. When trying to achieve a look like Kate would wear, simplicity is key. Take this outfit she was wearing while strolling through London recently.

The truth is that most of us have these key pieces in our wardrobe...but do we wear them like Kate? Probably not. Here are some tips on how to make any outfit more stylish.

1) Add a pair of heels. Heels instantly dress up your look. Also, the added bonus of heels: they make you appear taller and slimmer. SCORE!
2) Tuck in your shirt and throw on a belt. Big and baggy is so 1990. When you tuck in your shirt you look more polished and it gives you a better silhouette.
3) Ditch the oversized hobo bag and grab a clutch. Some people think clutches are only for evenings...this is not the case. Clutches make you instantly fabulous!

Old Navy Brings Back Blossom

Typically I can't stand Old Navy's commercials, but this one was HILARIOUS! I always loved Blossom.

Now my only question is, where's Six???

Fascinating Fascinators

A few weeks ago my parents were in Dublin, Ireland. While on their vacation they stumbled upon a cute vintage store, The Harlequin, where they picked up two adorable fascinators for me. Just call me Kate Middleton...well, not really. But they are so fun to wear.

This black feathery one is very wearable and adds a little something special to any outfit. Don't you love it?

Okay, this one is a little more out there...but isn't it amazing??? Wearing it reminds me of women with crazy hats at the horse races for some reason. Now I think I will have to have a derby party this year.  :-)

What do you think of fascinators? Do you have any?

I have to be 100% honest with you, I have no interest in seeing The Hunger Games. I know, I'm probably the only person who could care less about this movie...just not my cup of tea. But know what has me excited? Elizabeth Banks and her wardrobe at the premieres.

Doesn't she look amazing? Which look is your favorite??? I can't pick a favorite...stunning is stunning.

Happy Birthday To Me...

Today isn't only the first day of's my birthday. I miss the days when I looked forward to turning another year older. Nowadays when I hear happy birthday I seem to do the old eye roll and say it's just another day.

I did have a nice weekend though. On Sunday we went to my parents' house and my brothers' family came over. My mom made this YUMMY lemon cake. Delicious!

This coming weekend my husband and I are flying down to Raleigh, NC to visit my friend who is my birthday twin. Happy birthday Kelleny!!! Here's to 31!

Well, don't get too's just a small blurb with a shout out to my Fig blogs and to Snapshot Fashion. But it made me smile.

Lookin' Fab

If you read this blog there are two things you probably know about me...

1) I love the color pink. Even though I don't wear it that's my "signature color".
2) I adore Michelle Williams and her chic style.

99% of the time I see a snapshot of Michelle I am aching for her wardrobe. This dress is no exception to the rule. I love the asymmetrical neckline on this frock. Simply beautiful.

What do you think of this dress? Do you love Michelle's style as much as I do?

Lash Genius from Anastasia Beverly Hills

The other day I received the coolest product from my friends at Anastasia Beverly Hills called Lash Genius. This is a waterproof topcoat that you put on over any mascara. It instantly waterproofs, refreshes, and protects your mascara all day long. This colorless topcoat does not dry, harden, or clump lashes...which often happens with regular waterproof mascara.

I absolutely love this product! I cannot wait for you to try Lash Genius, which retails at $21. It will be available at Sephora in May mark it on your calendar ladies. You can thank me later.  :-)

A quick side note: I wanted to share some of the hilarious photos from the booklet that came with my Lash Genius. Too clever and cute for words.

Dress Like a Celebrity- Jessica Alba

So the truth of the matter is that I remember Jessica Alba for her style way more than her movies (I'll be lucky if I can rattle off three movies she has ever been in). She always looks so pulled together and casually chic. Here she is dressed as simple as can be...yet cute as a button while going out to dinner with friends.

I thought it would be fun to put a very affordable version of her outfit together. This really is such an easy work for anyone to wear...and appropriate for just about any occasion. What do you think of Jessica's look? Will you be attempting to wear my knock off version???
