Hello Kitty Fashion Jewelry

Jaws dropped this week as the world received the shocking news that Hello Kitty may not be a cat; although, as the Huffington Post reports a spokesperson said, “Hello Kitty was done in the motif of a cat. It’s going too far to say that Hello Kitty is not a cat. Hello Kitty is a personification of a cat.”

Regardless, the news has sent shockwaves across the entire globe (for whatever reason), so of course being the beauty and fashion maven that I am, I had no choice but to bring you some of the ways to incorporate the cat, or I guess personification of a cat, into your wardrobe. Behold:

Fashion Trend: Flats

Pour la Victoire Add to My Designers 

black leather 'Rena' gold plate pointed toe flats, $114

I remember a time when flats were considered casual. Women wouldn’t dare attend a cocktail party wearing shoes that didn’t contain at least a tiny heel. Flats were the footwear women secretly changed out of before walking into a major event, and then changed back into when the night was over. Now, flats are in, and can look just as stylish as a fabulous pair of heels. Here are some flats that will keep you looking glam while wearing that cocktail dress. Try pointy flats that add a bit of sophistication to the casual flat, or solid colorblocking to spice it up a bit.

America Ferrera looked amazing as she arrived outside the ITV Studios. Here’s how you can copy her look. But, it you don’t want to make the celebrity splurge, I also provided some options that incorporate the same pattern (black polka dots against red) that will be much friendlier on your wallet.

STEAL HER LOOK

For $498.00 (on sale by the way, it retails for $995), you too can own a blouse straight from Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring-Summer collection. It features a round collar and 3/4 length sleeves.

DOLCE & GABBANA Blouse - Spring-Summer Collection: $498.00

BE INSPIRED BY HER LOOK

Not all of us can afford to spend $500 just on one shirt. Just because America rocked an expensive blouse, doesn’t mean you can’t draw inspiration from her look to cater it in a way that works for you –  make the black polka dots on red look work for you without breaking the bank with one of these options.

Take the style a bit further by wearing the pattern as a dress:

Finding the perfect Hat for the Kentucky Derby

This week I will be attending a Kentucky Derby themed party, so naturally, I had to begin looking for the fashion accessory that’s most associated with the women who attend the event – the big, fancy, hat. The extravagant hat tradition dates back to 1711 when Queen Anne enforced a strict dress code which mandated the public wear hats in her presence. Years later, headwear still remains a staple at the event, and steals more attention than the races. Below are some of the hats I think would be perfect for the special occasion.

Get Glamorous Anti-Chafing Thigh Bands

A few weeks ago I attended an event where I was introduced to Bandelettes, a brand that produces thigh bands to relieve all of the uncomfortable problems of inner thigh chafing that many women encounter when wearing skirts and dresses.

What is chafing? It’s the irritation skin may experience due to the repetitive friction from a specific area, such as the thighs, rubbing together. Bandelettes prevents this problem, with an exclusive trademarked and patented design that features non-slip silicon on the underside of elastic lace that lightly wraps thighs and stays in place. The result: no more redness and soreness and the elimination of messy powders or lotions. Moreover, the garment is not just functional, but aesthetically pleasing, as the 6-inch long chic lace can provide a sexy peek-a-book look to rev up any outfit.

Developed by Rena Abramoff and Julia Abasova, the product is available in 4 different shades for $14.99 each. Get one now»
