In my quest to help women maximize their wardrobes through creative styling and DIY, this week I wanted to bring up belts. Chances are you have a few you don’t wear so why not wrap them around shoes or turn a skinny belt into a bracelet? You can even give new life to a clutch with a few simple stitches, or if you really want to push the envelope, check out the above shot from the L.A.M.B runway show.
I love new takes on old favorites! Simple stud earrings are suddenly feeling fresh thanks to cute colors and design details. Jessica Alba was recently spotted in a pair of Melissa Joy Manning’s golden studs (melissajoymanning.com) but you can also add a touch of glitz to your ensemble by seeking out colors that work with your complexion. While warm-skinned Alba looks gorgeous in gold, girls with cooler skin tones might like to scoop up jewelled studs in topaz, ruby or amethyst.

From Alexander McQueen’s moth motifs dominating the red carpet to the return of the “beehive” in stores, it seems like fashionistas are flocking to things with wings. What do you think? Is this ‘science class flashback’ fun?
It’s been refreshing to see men get glam lately! Who would have thought skincare sales would skyrocket and tight jeans would become a fashion staple amongst even the manliest of men? So it’s no surprise to see Hollywood hotties rocking cardigans… From Jessica Alba’s hubby Cash Warren to little Brooklyn Beckham, these dudes aren’t afraid to show their daintier sides.
Edible beauty is on my radar, from world of collagen coffee and acne clearing chocolate to chemical-free body products that are safe enough to eat (though not encouraged!) Studies report that up to 60% of what goes on your skin can get into your bloodstream and vice versa. That said, this week I’m offering a round-up of beauty bites that boast big benefits including Beauty Scoop, an Usana Essentials Vitamin Pack, 2 Vuka all natural intelligent drinks, a case of SoU! supplements and iChill relaxation shots to help get crucial rest.

I love shopping just as much as anyone, but what I love even more is digging into my closet and discovering new ways to wear old favorites. This week I was inspired by a woman I saw out and about in shorts, a tank and a burgundy knit cap, yet she still looked perfectly summery chic –so why not re-work your winter wears for summer? Whether you hide your hair on a humid day or keep cozy in the chilly movies, here are a few fresh ideas for bringing out your cold-weather favs.
On a typical summer day it seems like we ladies are stuck with too few comfy yet stylish shoe options. And if you plan to do a lot of walking, sandals and ballet flats don’t always cut it. So I want to bring desert trekkers to everyone’s attention. This classic shoe has been around for ages and is often targeted at men but I’ve been noticing more and more feminine versions popping up. Practical, pretty and perfect for prolonging that pedicure, your feet will thank you for this sole-saver.
Maybe it’s the warm weather or maybe it’s that I’m secretly 85 years old inside but lately I’m really loving what can only be described as “retirement home chic.” For so long fashion has looked to youth for inspiration but right now it feels fresh to be cozy in crochet or don bright hibiscus florals. Don’t you want to hop on a plane to Florida after looking at these?!
Whether you plan to travel this summer or just want to look like you’ve been trotting the globe, exotic jewelry is a fun investment (if you saw Sex and the City, I’m sure you’ll agree). An arm cuff, oversized earrings or a dramatic statement necklace will be a great addition to your current collection of bling.
And if you don’t have time to scour the world, I picked out a few treasures that you snag online…
