Jumping Jumping

Hello Loviesssss,

Today we would be looking at one of my favorite trends - the jumpsuit. Oh jumpsuit who would have thought your appeal would linger for so long? I particularly love this trend because its super cute, chic and sure to knock off 10-15mins off your dress up time...LOL. Just slip into one, wear some killer heels or flats, your lovely clutch, a little make up, your hair pulled up or let down and you are good to go.

To think that it was just the fashion brave who dared don a jumpsuit but today celebs everywhere are literally jumping on this statement-making piece.

Thanks to the sleek, feminine silhouettes, luxurious fabrics and colors, jumpsuits are now incredibly chic & stylish for both day and evening events. 

Now before we get carried away, i'd like to remind us of some ground rules we must honor when wearing the jumpsuit.

- Do not let your waist get lost : If you want to flatter your figure in a jumpsuit, you have to define the distinct sections of your body by cinching the waist, either with a belt or with a jumpsuit that has an elasticized or drawstring midsection.

- Ditch the 80's jumpsuit look : The jumpsuit itself is already reminiscent enough of the 80s, so don't go overboard with the color palette, too. It'll look much more modern if you mix things up.

- Pay attention to proportion : Identify the slimmest part of your own silhouette, then work backwards. If you've got killer legs but a not-so-firm tummy, go for a jumpsuit that's blousy up top and skinny in the legs. If you're more top-heavy, balance it out with a jumpsuit whose pants are wide leg or flowing.

So if you're interested in updating your wardrobe with an of-the-moment jumpsuit, you've come to the right place! 

Thanks for always reading.

Reviving the Polka Dots.......

Hello loviessss,

Hope you have all had a splendid week? My last post on "a new kind of necklace" got some questions from my darling plus size readers wondering if they could pull off the trend. Please check the comments on that post for the my answer.

Today we would be looking at another fashion trend - the polka dot.... 
When you think about this trend you think girly, timeless, pretty, chic etc. This trend has been around for a while and makes a come back every other season - almost never goes out of style. 
From the classic black and white to the bright yellow and black to the warmer colors such as mint and black this trend is a staple and always puts a smile on you face.

Trending - A new kind of necklace :-)

Hello Loviessss,

How have you all been? Was going through some of my fashion magazines and i saw this lovely accessory that has been trending for a while... I like to call it 'a new kind of necklace' 

There is nothing more classic in fashion than the collar. Whether matching the shirt it is attached to, embellished, or bold, it has long been the starting point of a look: elegantly and gently encasing a woman’s neck and leading the onlooker into the rest of her look. In the past few seasons, the collar has taken on a whole new form altogether, becoming a stand-alone piece of jewelry. 

So when you are looking for that accessory piece to jazz up your look the collar works well.

Hope you like... Thanks for always reading.
