maleficentheader

Our summer 2014 must-see movie list is bursting at the seams, and once you take a peek at Disney’s new Maleficent trailer you will understand why! The film puts a new spin on the 1959 Sleeping Beauty classic, telling the untold story of the villainess, Maleficent, played by the always stunning Angelina Jolie! Even with dramatically enhanced cheekbones, sharpened nose, and piercing yellow eyes, Jolie’s beauty remains out of this world! Check out her jaw-dropping transformation below:

And as if one pouty beauty wasn’t enough, Disney recruited the sultry singing talents of miss Lana Del Rey who delivers a hauntingly catchy rendition of the classic ‘Once Upon A Dream’ ballad. Talk about chills!

What are your summer movie plans?

A trend this cute hasn’t been hip since the 1990′s and we’re SO glad they’re back: babydoll dresses! From festival festivities to brunch with the girls, these fun and flirty frocks are so easy to dress up or down with their swing-worthy style.

1990′s Grunge: Get your 1990’s grunge look on with a plaid print babydoll dress or a flirty floral print  like our Under the Sunflower Blue Floral Print Babydoll Dress. Black or colored tights perfectly complement ankle boots like the Wild Diva Lounge Essence 11 Black Lace-Up Combat Boots, while a hat, some dark lipstick, and a long pendant necklace will definitely complete this throwback look!

Uptown Chic: Take this look straight uptown with a pretty shade of white like our True Romance Ivory Lace Dress and a pair of heels or city sandals like the City Classified Saloma White and Gold Ankle Strap Sandals. Chic gold and rhinestone accessories will step up this ladylike look in a heartbeat.
