Craving Fall

It’s late September and Western NY is still having Summer weather. Now, I know I shouldn’t be complaining because in April I’m going to be begging for the snow to melt and it wont for another month. I just want to whip out all my boots, flannels, and sweaters. Is that so much to ask? I don’t think so. In the mean time, I have my fall sketches to look at and vicariously live through them.

Fashion Deals of Summer 2014

Hello all!

Summer 2014 has so far been a pretty hot one and I needed to stock up on my shorts! I decided to stay away from the stereotypical Abercrombie Daisy Dukes and look for a more professional pair of shorts that I could wear to work. After days of extensive research I stumbled upon some great shorts for a great price!

New York and Company! Love this store and would love to intern for them in the upcoming future! Anyway, what makes their shorts the winner, besides the fact that they come in awesome patterns and are super comfortable, but the price! For the past month they have been (online and in store) either buy one get one free or all half off! So between both deals you will be getting two pairs of well made sorts for a little under $50!!! I am a girl with wide hips and a high waist and I love the fit of the shorts! I tend to go for the ones with a little extra stretch because I’m constantly moving around at work and they fit wonderfully! Seriously! I’m going to compare these shorts to tattoos… Once you get one you will be addicted! Happy shopping all 🙂

 

Here are some of my favorites and ones that I own!

OOTD and some EB-ology!

What is more girly than a pair of hot pink patent leather heels? How about matching those heels up with a hot pink blazer, throw on my favorite animal print top, add some bling and BAM there’s my outfit today 🙂

It’s Friday and let’s face it, most of us are running on our last tank of carb-free fashion fuel. Now this may not be a scientific fact, but I have found a direct connection between how one acts and how one dresses. Like all other theories there will be exceptions, but trust me on this one, alright? I could have just pulled on a pair of leggings and a crew neck sweatshirt, but since that is not very different from what I wear to bed, I decided to spice up my Friday wardrobe and all before my class at 9am!

Need some advice, tips, and tricks on fashion, makeup, life, and being a women?  Check out my EB-ology page that will be continuously updated.

EB-ology #1: When you dress like you’re tired, you’re going to be tired.Yes, fashion should be comfort, but life is not a pajama party. Life should be your runway. So when you’re debating between look chic or wearing the sweats, go for the more stylish choice. Think about it.. no story about a bad day ever started with, “I wore this fabulous outfit today…”.

EB-ology #2: When in doubt, shoulders back, chest out. No, this one isn’t to show off your girls. Good posture increases oxygen flow which will make you feel more alert and will automatically make your outfit look much better. Clothes were made to be displayed well on hangers (that’s why models are so thin), not Kwazimoto. Come on girl, stand up straight! One more fun fact about good posture… you burn more calories with good posture as opposed to slouching.

EB-ology #3: Would Daddy say “no” and not let you go? If you wouldn’t want your Dad or Mom to see how you look, you should probably second guess your outfit choice. This rule applies more to night fashion, hopefully. Anyway, never let your outfit give a negative impression because you never know who is around you. Maybe the guy or gal at the bar is the same person who will be interviewing you in a few days. I’m not saying never show a little skin and never wear tight clothing. Seriously, as a girl with a tiny waist and curvy hips I am all for the body-con dress, but you have to respect yourself!

EB-ology #4: If your friends look lame, it’s you to blame. This can also be applied to the basic rules of feminism. Never let your girls go out looking like a mess, because even if you look absolutely fabulous no one is going to notice because of the natural disaster surrounding you. When your BFF asks you, “Do I look good?” BE HONEST! Before you answer her pause and ask yourself, ‘would I go out in that outfit?’. If she doesn’t look good just simply tell her no. You would expect her to do the same, right?

EB-ology #5: NEVER DWI and ALWAYS have a DD! This one is for those days when pre-gaming starts way before it should. Never DRESS WHILE INTOXICATED, unless you have a DESIGNATED DRESSER! Remember, alcohol inhibits good judgement. If you have no choice but to dress yourself while being a little tipsy, make sure you get 3 outfit approvals. It’s 2014 people, send a few picture messages, skype or facetime for a minute, or knock on your neighbors door. Not only will you be fashion saved for the night, but you will also be giving a few people a reason to chuckle. Girl, we have all been there. Don’t be embarrassed for what you are wearing!
