The Women with Control Giveaway

The debate of wearing shapewear continues. You either wear it or you don’t. I am very proud of my body and I wear shapewear. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Wearing it won’t make me loose 10 pounds, but it does smooth me out. With some women, that can definitely mean a boost in their confidence. We all know what it’s like to wear something we love and feel very comfortable in…

Let’s be friends.

Who wants to be my friend? Anyone? Fine! Then you’re not got getting a friendship bracelet from me.  I’m sorry but that’s the new rule around here. LOL.

I only plan on wearing them with a casual outfit. Wait…did I just by myself my…

Style Trend: The Kimono

The Kimono, a traditional Japanese garment, has always inspired fashion trends. Kimono actually means “a thing put on.” And derives from ki “wear” and mono “thing.” Just a little fashion lesson for ya. It’s normally a long length robe, with wide sleeves and wide sash at the waist. And it was a definite inspiration for these pieces I found below at Style369.com, Evans.co.uk, and DorothyPerkins.com. They feature the the wide sleeves and some even have a sash…

What’s missing?

I’m always so curious as to finding out exactly what fashionistas like when it comes to accessorizing. I’m a true believer that just one accessory can liven up any outfit. Especially if it’a nude or tan dress, like the T-Bags mini-dress below, and the accessory is a much needed pop of color. But, that’s just me. I want to know what you think…(read below)I’ve chosen 6 random accessories below.If you could ONLY choose ONE, which…
