Mixing Prints in fashion is truly one of my favorite secret weapons when putting together an outfit. As you can see here, putting together random prints and patterns has now become one of my fashion specialties; but I'm aware that print mixing can be hard to master. Until now...

If you are as obsessed with the off the shoulder trend as me, or never thought you could wear a certain trend, this post is for you. The off the shoulder/cold shoulder trend came out last year and I'll confess, I was leery to jump on the bandwagon.
In the perfect world of fashion everything fits right and everything flatters your figure flawlessly. Well, we know that world doesn’t exist and as a blogger and personal stylist I always preach that the best clothes for you are the clothes that flatter your figure the most.
That means some trends you may have to pass on regardless of how cute they are because they do absolutely nothing for your figure.

Now that the weather is finally giving us endless sun and warmer temperatures its time to start shopping for staple summer dresses. After wearing boots and stockings all winter being able to go bare legged in a summer dress is the best reward for warm weather. I fell in love with my vintage striped dress for many reasons; not only is it versatile and can be worn for work or play but the print is also very forgiving and highlights my shape perfectly. How?Let me explain…
When we go shopping we often look for something visually appealing or anything that’s “in style” but we neglect to look for clothes that look best on our body. Whether you know it or not, certain prints, shapes and fabrics can be universally flattering to your figure. My vintage striped dress has vertical stripes which automatically elongate my figure & the belt (that came with the dress) is strategically placed at the smallest point of my waist giving me an automatic hourglass shape. This dress is instantly slimming & sorry to say I bought it at a vintage store so I have no link for you to buy the exact one. But, I have gathered 5 dresses online that will instantly slim you & visually take away those last few winter pounds we are all working to get off. Read all about them below.

Anyone that lives in the Midwest knows the weather lately has been crazy. In the month of April there's been snow (3 times), the usual down pours and a few 72 degree days. Not only is the unpredictable weather annoying, but its hard to know what to wear when the temperatures change so drastically .

When it comes to fashion icons political figures normally don't show up anywhere near the list; but when Michelle Obama entered the White House in 2009 that all changed. From her first day as first lady, Michelle showed us how to steal the style spotlight not just by wearing high end gowns and designer threads, but by wearing clothes that you and I can not only pull off but afford.

It's officially spring & although the temperatures have yet to get the memo, it's the perfect time to incorporate the warm, bright & pastel colors into your wardrobe. Although pastels can be worn any time of the year, it's something about warmer temperatures and longer days that make you feel like dressing with colors that match the blooming flowers. but, wearing these colors arent so easy as the typical winter neutrals. Dark colors seem much easier to match, style and pair together but never fear, I've gathered a short list of tips to help you embrace the baby blues, mint greens and powder pinks below:
