FashionValentines Day 3 Ways: The Sweetheart

Is the concept of Valentine’s Day giving you wardrobe anxiety? Have you already ransacked your closet with the hopes of making an old dress work for your special night? I have just the solution for you my friends! Whether you have a special someone or are hanging out with your favorite friends this V-Day, I have just the thing for you! To make things simple I have broken it down to three styles: The Sweetheart, The Vixen, and The Nonconformist. Which one are you? Or are you like me and a little bit of all three? Let’s take a look at our first beauty, The Sweetheart. If this definitely isn’t you, visit us again on Wednesday and Friday for our other two looks!

We all know the sweetheart. She is a good girl with a good heart and dresses just the part. Often the girl next door, the beauty queen, the animal lover, the future school teacher, the Pep Squad leader, this girl is feminine and happy to be! Pink is a not a problem but other girly colors will do just as well. Smart and beautiful, the sweetheart knows how to be friends with everyone and to have the courage to dream big. Let’s look at some fabulous options if you are indeed The Sweetheart!

Two beautiful options shown here would make any sweetheart proud.  On the left we have the Glance of Flower Strapless Pink Dress. This elegant, light pink dress looks like fresh cut flowers! On the right we have the La Vie en Rose Pink Dress which would be perfect for twirling the night away!

Here we have 2 examples of truly sweet shoes! On the left we have a gorgeous pair called the Qupid Gaze Patent and Chiffon Slingbacks. I am obsessed with the smooth patent and the pretty chiffon on these heels! For something more understated the Go Max Ashland Natural Patent Pumps are perfect to wear not only for Valentine’s Day but with their super neutral color they will work year round.

When it come to accessories make sure to stay just as sweet! Try the Oh la Bow on for size in your choice of silver or gold. To tote all your necessities try the Powder Puff Purse in Black! I love the rosette-style look of this ruffled bag.

Whatever you end up wearing make sure to have fun! Check back in on Wednesday and Friday for more Valentine’s Day ideas!

FashionThe Strong and Stylish Ladies of Iron Man 2

Scarlett Johansson in Iron Man 2When I went to see the new blockbuster hit, Iron Man 2, this weekend, I expected plenty of action packed scenes and stunning graphics to go with it. The last thing I expected was to be struck by the amazing wardrobe choices of the film’s two hot leading ladies.

Gwyneth Paltrow returns as Pepper Potts, the smart and faithful assistant to Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr. Scarlett Johansson also joins the cast as Natasha Rushman, Tony’s mysterious new assistant who’s not only beautiful but kicks major butt.

 

Scarlett’s character is definitely meant to be the sultry type. Her sharp business attire accentuates her feminine features with the utmost of confidence. Her wardrobe also seems to borrow from 1940′s retro style with its high waistlines, polished pumps and one leopard print dress to die for!

Gwyneth’s wardrobe is a bit more conservative. Black, grey and navy dresses pair with a tasteful boat neckline to keep her look focused on business while remaining both simplistic and lovely.

Have you seen the film? If so, who wore your favorite look?
