*Get Styled*

Today's offender---Mischa Barton.

Over the years Mischa's personal style has made me...sad. Sad because every once in a while she goes out to an event and actually looks nice, and I think to myself WHY CAN'T SHE ALWAYS LOOK THIS GOOD?!?!?! She even played a super stylish character on the O.C., so you think she would have learned a thing or two about fashion.

Mischa, I have finally had enough! Enough of the mom jeans, high waisted shorts, unflattering rompers, and clothing that just doesn't fit you anymore. You are by NO MEANS fat, but the items you often wear make you look a good 20-30 pounds heavier than you actually are. Come on, you can dress better than this! I've put together three great looks that would look fabulous on you.

What do you think of Mischa's personal style? Are you a fan of it? Do you think her wardrobe needs some revamping???

*Get Styled*

Some of you know this already, but for those of you that don't a dream job of mine is to be a fashion stylist. My inner control freak wants to tell EVERYONE what they should (and shouldn't) wear. I thought it would be fun to share some of my styling ideas on Snapshot Fashion in a new regular post called *Get Styled*.

Today I'm taking on a girl that has her very own distinct style: Taylor Momsen. Now don't get me wrong, I love an edgy rocker look...but I think Taylor pushes this look a tad too far. I mean, the fact that she is ONLY 16 leaves me speechless! Gosh, if I was 16 and tried to dress like this my mother wouldn't let me leave the house.

Here I put together a number of age appropriate rocker looks that any 16 year old would love to wear.

Which look that I created is your favorite? Do you think they are more age appropriate, or not edgy enough?

Do you think there is anything innappropriate with what Taylor typically wears? Let's discuss...

Snapshot Fashion Store- Revamped

Every now and again Snapshot Fashion likes to revamp our online store of Snapshot Fashion merchandise. Since spring has officially sprung, I thought it would be a great time to add some new items and make some changes on other items that have been around for a while. Gotta keep things fresh!

So please stop on by the store and pick up some of your favorite SF merchandise!

*Also, for those of you that have purchased or won SF merchandise please take a moment and send in a photo of yourself using your items. We love seeing them! Maybe you'll even get featured on Snapshot Fashion.  :-)

Would You Wear This?

Ginnifer Goodwin showed up to the Genesis Awards in Beverly Hills wearing this crimson lace Valentino dress. To be honest, I have some mixed feelings about this look. To start off, I really do love the color of this dress on her. She really stands out in the crowd in this bold color. And the length of this dress is makes her legs look like they go on for miles.

But there are two things that I don't love about this look. First off is the fact that she is wearing no (visible) jewelry. Throwing on some earrings or a necklace could make such a huge difference in this look. Secondly, I absolutely HATE the neckline of this frock. It just looks too harsh on her. I would have loved to see it wish either a deep-V or a sweetheart neckline. 

What do you think of this look? If you had to opportunity to wear it, would you???

My Style

I just had the best birthday! The older I get the less I like to make a big deal about my birthday this year we played it rather low key. We went out for lobster rolls, then walked around the city enjoying the beautiful weather, then did some shopping, got some drinks, and finished it off with a 3 course dessert & wine pairing.

dress- BB Dakota from Fred Flare
cardigan- Forever 21
belt- H&M
shoes- Forever 21

This weather could last forever and I promise I won't complain. I spent a large majority of my day outside and the sunshine put a huge smile on my face. That and the fact that my husband got me the prettiest blue dress ever made for my birthday. I LOVE IT!

I have to admit, being 29 is starting out pretty great!  :-)

How did you spend your first day of spring???

My Lip Stuff Review & GIVEAWAY!

The other day I received some samples in the mail from My Lip Stuff. I was so very excited to be receiving these three lip balms, because I am so obsessed with lip products...and the thought of trying out a new brand made my day!

My Lip Stuff has over 400 flavors of natural lip balm. I couldn't wait to see which three they included for me. I ended up getting: Raspberry Cheesecake, Kitty Litter Cake (?!?!), and their limited edition Easter Lip Balm: Cotton Candy Twist.

I'd be lying to say that I wasn't a little concerned about Kitty Litter Cake. I think when I read the flavor the word EEEEWWWWW shrieked out of me. But I have to admit, it was actually quite pleasant...smelling kinda like chocolate cake. YUM!!! All of the flavors were really quite lovely! I think my favorite of the three had to be Raspberry Cheesecake, because who in their right mind doesn't love that tasty dessert?!?! It smells like the real deal.

I honestly can say that I do not think I will ever buy Chapstick again. These lip balms went on super smooth and glossy...and kept my lips feeling hydrated for hours on end without having to reapply!

Not only are the products wonderful, but creator Brea states on her site that, "We strive to create a natural product made from only the highest quality ingredients, with the least amount of impact on the environment and its inhabitants, for the lowest possible price." 

My Lip Stuff has been kind enough to provide one lucky reader a chance to try out their lip balms! One reader will win a six pack of lip balms in an assortment of randomly chosen flavors. This giveaway is open to ALL readers.

1) You must be a Snapshot Fashion follower via Google Friend Connect.

gla.MAR.ous Headband Winner

Thanks to everyone that has entered the gla.MAR.ous headband giveaway Snapshot Fashion was hosting. Only one could win...and the lucky winner is: DG

DG, I just emailed you...please write me back with your shipping address!

Lookin' Fab

I just love Dakota Fanning's sense of style for two reasons:
1) She always looks so effortlessly chic. Simplicity is key when it comes to her wardrobe.
2) She dresses for her age (she's only 16)! So many young Hollywood stars try to look way older than they should. Dakota keeps it real.

Dakota showed up to the N.Y.C. premiere of The Runaways hosted by Tommy Hilfiger and Quintessentially in this adorable Elie Saab Haute Couture hand-embroidered cocktail dress with nude pumps from Brian Atwood.

What do you think of this look on her???

What Was She Thinking???

I always thought that actress Mena Suvari was very pretty in her own way. She wasn't a cookie cutter Hollywood celeb...and her unique look really worked for her. But I just came across a recent photo of her at a party in L.A. and I stopped in my tracks. That hair! That dress! All of it is just SO WRONG!

What do you think of Mena's party look?
