Trend Block

This summer has been insanely hot, so it makes sense to want your clothing to have less material than normal. Bring on the strapless minidresses! These dresses are all over the red carpet. This is a trend that even Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie agree on. It really is the best option for a night out. You'll look very hot while remaining incredibly cool.

Here are some of our favorite celebrities showing off the strapless minidress trend---

Angelina Jolie wearing Emporio Armani

Naomi Watts wearing Gucci

Jennifer Aniston wearing Valentino

Selena Gomez wearing Christian Cota

Can't afford these expensive designer dresses? Yeah, me neither. No worries. I did find some really amazing strapless minidresses that are sure to please your wallet (all shown are under $100). Click on the collage below to see where you can purchase them.

Completely Smooth & Elizabeth Grant Review & GIVEAWAY!

Recently I received products from Completely Smooth & Elizabeth Grant (thanks to Ashley from IntenCity) and I couldn't have been more pleased. Three products were shipped to me: Completely Smooth Face, Biocollasis Complex Total Regeneration Eye Fill Concentrate, and The Socializer.

Completely Smooth Face ($28)- This hair inhibiting moisturizer is scent-free and oil free. It's designed to put an end to unwanted hair growth. Clinical studies show that after using it for 28 days:
-reduces hair density by as much as 50%
-reduces hair growth by as much as 55%
-reduces hair length by as much as 30%
Celebrities that love this product include: Fergie, Paris Hilton, Olivia Palermo, and Kimora Lee Simmons.
Being part Italian (us Sicilians are hairy, haha), you know I love this product!

Biocollasis Complex Total Regeneration Eye Fill Concentrate ($48)- This wrinkle fighting product contains an advanced concentrate of regenrative ingredients with a micro-smoothing action to instantly diminish and soften the appearance of wrinkles. On application your skin looks smoother and unwrinkled, and in the long term it keeps your skin looking flawless.
Celebrities that love this product include: Brooke Shields, Blake Lively, Jennifer Lopez, and Ginnifer Goodwin.
Even though I am only 29, it is NEVER TOO SOON to start using wrinkle creams. I have been obsessed with them for the last few years, and this one really is a step above the rest.

The Socializer ($40)- This product comes in two pens: Bright Lights (for AM use) and Late Nights (for PM). It is extra hydrating and cooling which de-puffs and erases dark circles...keeping you looking refreshed no matter how many late night and early mornings you have.

This was probably my favorite product out of the bunch! I have such dark circles (always have!), and this product REALLY WORKS!

Pick of the Day

One item that my summer wardrobe is majorly lacking is a chunky platform sandal. While browsing Chinese Laundry's website I came across the most fabulous pair. These SASSYFRAS sandals will look perfect with just about anything you wear...jeans, a skirt, a casual dress...*instant fab*!!! Not only does it come in two great colors (tan and black)...but it also adds a nice 4 1/2" to your height.

What would you wear with these sandals?

*Great Deal*

Currently I'm visiting my family in Pennsylvania. Every once in a while it is so nice to get out of the city and get some clean air and much needed relaxation. One thing I always do while I'm in town is head on over to Kohl's (since we don't have one in NYC) to see what great deals I can come across. I know, of all places I love shopping at Kohl's...but you seriously have no idea on the great deals I find there.

Yesterday I went shopping and got this adorable Derek Heart Floral Challis Romper that was marked down to $7.20 (originally priced at $36)...AND I also had a special card giving me an additional 15% off of that $7.20 price tag! It was a deal I couldn't pass up!!! I also bought a woven belt to wear with it...and it really is the cutest summer outfit (I actually have it on today).

What do you think of rompers? I have been incorporating them into my wardrobe for the first time this summer...and I'm in love with this trend. They kind of have the look of a dress...but with them being shorts they are much more practical. Please share your thoughts on rompers.

Would You Wear This?

Jessica Alba wore this chiffon Valentino gown to the Valentino Garavani Archives dinner party in Versailles, France. I think on just about anyone else I would hate this dress...but it looks like it was made just for her. Wearing hardly any jewelry and a natural hairstyle is the way to go with this don't want to get distracted from that amazing dress. She lets the ruffle do the talking!

What do you think of this look on Jessica? If you had the chance would you wear it???

Lookin' Fab

Freida Pinto showed up to the NYC premiere of The Last Airbender in this lime green Oscar de la Renta dress. Doesn't she look amazing in this color?!?! I love to see actresses show up on the red carpet in a bright and bold look. All the dressing up they have to do, they might as well have some fun with it. I know I would!

Wearing bright colors could easily be messed up. Freida does it right by keeping all the accessories to a minimum and in neutral tones. So take note: if you are going to wear something bold and eye-catching keep everything else very simple. That way you will look classy and not tacky.

What do you think of this look on Freida?


*Great Deal*

One of my favorite things that Anthropologie has is their jewelry. I love all of it! Not only is their jewelry incredibly unique but the jewelry in their sale section is so very affordable.

This Hardy Begonia Necklace (originally marked at $52) is now only $29.95! It's such an adorble piece that will add a pop of color to your summer look. What would you wear it with? I'm thinking it would look fabulous with a simple jeans and tshirt look, or maybe a feminine sundress.
