MusicJessie J and Vivienne Westwood!!

One of my favorite things about Saturday Night Live is the musical performances. Last weekend a hilarious episode featured super-hot new Brit rocker, Jessie J. With explosive sounds, interesting songs and her very fashionable looks, this “It Girl” has totally got it going on!
This girl is not afraid to show her curves, appearing in this hot pink bodysuit, and also some glittery high-waisted pants. I’m lovin’ it!
It turns out that just a few weeks ago this very same mistress was on showcase at Vivienne Westwood’s Palladium Get a Life Party. Releasing her new line of precious metal jewelry and kicking off British Fashion Week, Westwood had this young doll adorned with one of her palladium oak leaf headpieces.

FashionPart 1: What Flatters Your Body Type? Pears and Rectangles.

The best look for you is one that flatters your body type.
How many times have you fallen in love with a dress, only to find that it alters your proportions in a maybe-not-so-good way? Throughout the years, ladies, I have decided that there are some looks I will just not do, and others that make shopping at a glance totally doable.
Since the subject is wonderfully vast, I’ve decided to break it up into a few parts. Today we will explore Pears and Rectangles.
1. Pear-Shaped: If you have a pear-shaped figure, then you are bigger on the bottom than the top. Your curves tend to appear below your natural waistline, and you may have an average to smaller bust.
Looks for you include full skirts, dresses belted at the natural waistline, fitted tops, and you can usually get away with strapless dresses. You’ll want to accentuate your thinner waist, and you can boost your bust line with a few ruffles or a paneled bust.
Skirts for the Pear-Shaped Figure
Paired with that cute little bustier on the left, that swishing full skirt will put your hips and thighs comfortably in their place.
Dresses for the Pear-Shaped Figure
BB Dakota by Jack makes a lot of cute dresses with full skirts, like this strapless dress on the right.
2. The Rectangle: If you have a rectangle-shaped figure, then you are less curvy, with a straighter torso and less defined waist.
The flappers of the twenties were experts at showing off this body type with dropped waistlines and straight shift dresses. If you want to look a little curvier, try a surplice or overlapping bodice, or a top that flares at the waistline.
Tops for the Rectangle-Shaped Figure
The oversized fit in the upper half of these tops cinches in at the waist to create a nice hourglass shape.
Dresses for the Rectangle-Shaped Figure
These straight dresses will give you that cute flapper look that works great when you have narrow hips. Own it sisters!
These two dresses cinch in at the waist and have swooping panels of fabric that create the illusion of curves.
What’s your body shape?
Let me know what shape you are and I will include you in Part 2!!!!

BeautyMonday Hair Flair: Five Ways to Rescue Bad Hair Days

Bad hair day? Running late?
I hear ya. That’s pretty much me every day. So, in honor of my perpetual lateness to everything under the sun, I’ve decided to put together a little review session for all you lovely ladies on how to survive bad hair on a day when you have no time to fix it.
Here we go!
Option 1:  Put on a hat. Ta-da! Invest in a couple of different styles that make you feel cute and don’t give you a headache after a couple of hours. Try a beanie, a fedora, a big floppy, or, in a pinch, your sweetie’s baseball cap!
Option 2:  Can’t wear a hat to work? Slip on a headband. The great thing about headbands is that they instantly make you look classy and polished. Take it from Miss Bardot:
The process:  Run a little anti-frizz cream through your hair, tease the top layer of your hair a little bit, and slip it on. (Time? Less than a minute!)
Option 3: Fix up the front. One of the easiest ways to look like you tried without actually doing much work is to spend two seconds doing your bangs. Grab your blow dryer or straightener and blast the front pieces smooth to form some soft pieces around the sides of your face. Then, throw the rest of your hair into a messy bun at the side or the back. Don’t have bangs? Sleek all of your hair back to the back, throw on some black eyeliner and lipstick, and rock your bad self for the day!
Optional:  Add a scarf or bandana and some chic shades!
Option 4: Braid the night before. If you know you’re a late person in general, or that you’re going to have a crazy day the next day, then throw your hair into a french braid the night before. Again, rub a little anti-frizz cream through your hair to prevent minimal pillow damage, and then put it in a fairly tight braid (a lot will loosen in the night). In the morning, unbraid and let it flow! Throw in some cute clips if you want.
Option 5:  Braid in the morning. In following with Option 4, the braid is a great choice for bad/quick hair days. Messy is in, so it definitely doesnt have to be perfect. Try it to the side for a little casual glam, or leave it loose in back.

Note:  all of these style work SO much better when paired with dry shampoo. Every girl should have a can of this stuff — simply spray on roots and greasy bits, rub in with your fingers, and ta-da! Insta volume and the greasy is gone! Make sure you get an invisible one that doesn’t leave any white residue. There are different kinds of dry shampoo for different kinds of hair, so you may have to try a few to get one that works with your hair. 
 I hope this helps! However, I’m sure there are many, many other ways to survive bad hair day. Got your own solution? Post your tips in the comments below!
