Accessories Reflect Mother Earth

Posted by kristin On March - 25 - 2010

Straw Hats Springtime is just such an incredible time of year with mother earth showing up in full force. It’s hard not to at least take a moment and be awed by the flowers popping out of the earth and the trees exploding with buds so it’s no wonder that for spring 2010 women’s accessories are paying homage to nature. 2010’s spring accessories are not the typical spring colors, with pastels everywhere, but rather they’re more neutral and muted but still a reflection of nature. To get the... more

Posted by kristin On March - 23 - 2010

Project Runway Season 7 Cast If you’re a fan of Project Runway then you’ll know that this seventh season features a lot of colorblocking, especially from Mila Hermanovski. In fact, it seems that colorblocking is all this designer can do and it’s getting repetitive but overall colorblocking is actually becoming one of the latest fashion trends. Colorblocking is the combination of two contrasting colors, usually in large chunks. Following the colorblock trend will be quite easy in 2010 as more... more

Reese Witherspoon Today is Reese Witherspoon’s birthday, the starlet is 34 today and really looks better than ever. Yep, even in this incredibly casual ensemble. Reese Witherspoon is seen above with her boyfriend Jim Toth on vacation in Ojai, California taking a vacation not only from their homes but from all the trappings of celebrity too. There is just something comforting in seeing a celebrity dressing the way I do on a regular basis and not really looking any better than I do. Reese is wearing... more

Posted by kristin On March - 19 - 2010

Diane Kruger Above the Knee Skirt Hemlines are always on the move, making it difficult for professional women to keep up with the trends. For the last couple of years it seemed like every length of dress was in style, and you’ll probably find a lot of that this season in recreation and evening wear but professional clothing has gone back to a more professional uniform look. For your work look for 2010 you’ll want to look for skirts that hit just above the knee line. Nothing flashy, nothing that... more

What People are Wearing to the Gym

Posted by kristin On March - 16 - 2010

Jillian Michaels It’s hard to believe but we’re into the third month of this year and my fitness resolution appears to be sticking a bit. At least I’m still rolling into the gym twice a week, I’ll admit I’m not losing any weight and I’m definitely not looking any different, but I’m going to the gym. I have noticed a few things at the gym through, my schlubby sweats are not what most people are wearing. Several years ago I was in shape and my sweats were new, since then they’ve become... more

Dress Like Sarah Jessica Parker

Posted by kristin On March - 13 - 2010

Sarah Jessica Parker Sarah Jessica Parker has been called a fashion icon for a long time now but, honestly, I’d almost never wear anything she work (especially her Sex and the City wardrobe) and even if I like her clothing choices (like her 2010 Academy Awards Chanel gown) there is never an occasion in my life when I could wear a similar outfit. That is until I spotted this recent picture of Sarah Jessica Parker in New York City with her son. Her long black coat with fur collar looks nice and toasty... more

What’s New in Handbags for Spring 2010

Posted by kristin On March - 12 - 2010

Victoria Beckham Messenger Bag For financial and practical reasons I set a challenge for myself in 2010, to not buy any shoes. Shoes are my one true love and it’s been a challenge but so far I’ve been successful. That is I’ve been successful in not buying shoes but maybe not in saving money. It appears as though my addiction has shifted to handbags. The handbag fixation started with an oversized pink handbag because that is one of the big trends for the spring. I may love this pink handbag... more
