7 Simple (Affordable) Fall Fashion Updates

October 4th, 2016 by

I am not going to stop you from shopping. I’ll leave that to your accountant. Or your husband. Or that responsible shopping friend who always wonders, aloud, if you really need another pair of jeans. (Why yes. Yes, you do). My job is to show you the new stuff. And not all of it, either. That’s […]

What to Wear to Go Back to Work

June 29th, 2016 by

(Disclaimer: Don’t hate me for saying “work.” I know that we all work. Wherever you are and whatever you do for work, it is still work. But “work” is easier to say than “working outside the home at a paying job that requires you to dress up a bit.”) If you’ve spent the last few […]

How to Dress Cute While Pregnant (on a Budget!)

June 26th, 2016 by

If you’re reading this, I’m a little jealous of you right now. I hope you know how truly blessed you are… I loved every single second of being pregnant. Every. Single. Second. I was deliriously happy. I never got nauseous.  think it was God’s way of giving me a break after 6 stressful years of fertility […]

How to Rock a Transitional Wardrobe

June 23rd, 2016 by

Okay, I’ll admit it. Transitional Wardrobes, and, frankly, capsule wardrobes of any kind can be a little, yawn…. especially for creative, spontaneous, former-impulse-shoppers like myself. If, like me, you’ve never met a frill or a bauble you didn’t adore, then the idea of the same 28 outfit combinations on repeat for 6 months can sound like […]

What to Wear During a Weight Gain (or Loss!)

June 22nd, 2016 by

I hear you. Transitions are tough. Tricky. Traumatic even. (Sorry—I never miss a chance to alliterate!). They are confidence killers. And that’s what stinks. During a time when you could use a boost of confidence the most, a wardrobe that no longer fits or suits your lifestyle has the exact opposite effect. It is deflating. […]

Your Denim Dilemmas, Solved

April 5th, 2016 by

You know all those times you wondered, in frustration, who the denim companies were making jeans for… Well, they’re making them for this girl. Let’s call her Hip Minimalist Denim Girl. And every single denim company in the world seems to making jeans to fit her. She’s tall and slim and perfectly proportioned and has […]

Best Bathing Suits for Straight Body Types

March 24th, 2016 by

What do Kate Hudson and Cameron Diaz and most supermodels have in common? They have straight body types. This means that their hips and shoulders are about the same and their waist isn’t very defined. Sound like you? Then you, and your glamorous counterparts, could be a Style Dial 3. And this, frankly, makes me […]

Best Bathing Suits for Women with Hips

March 23rd, 2016 by

You’ve either got’em or you don’t. Hips, that is. And if you’ve got’em, nobody needs to point them out to you. I have never met a woman with curvy hips who was unaware that she had curvy hips. After all, she’s been dressing them her entire adult life. So if you are blessed with a feminine […]

Best Bathing Suits for Proportional Body Types

March 22nd, 2016 by

I’m going to tell you, in case you haven’t heard it before, that you are blessed. I’m sure you’re blessed in lots of ways, of course, but I’m talking about blessed on a strictly superficial level here. You have the body type that clothing companies and designers live for — the kind that they wish […]

How to Pick the Right One Piece Swimsuits for Your Body Type | Bathing Suit Week

March 21st, 2016 by

I have just spent what feels like weeks looking at 20-something models in tiny, tiny bathing suits. Months, maybe. Seriously. And no, this wasn’t a misguided attempt to motivate myself to get in shape for swimsuit season. I promise. It was work, actually. I had a 20-page swim spread due for My Coast Magazine, and that involved […]
