Jeans we wear religiously, but there are times when we should put some things to rest and summer time will be the perfect season to let our skirted garments shine. It the woven fabric that keeps our legs warm in the winter and hot as hell in the summer.

This accessory is one for those who would rather adorned their heads while everyone is puts their jewels on the neck. I’ve been suggesting jeweled headbands as an alternative to necklaces for those who may be attending black-tie weddings or prom.
I’ve share some stylish looks for prom (here and here) that can either have some young ladies raising their eyebrows in a questionable way or raising it plotting how they’ll one up on their fashion rivals at the prom with the sequenced romper and sheer skirt!

My love of hats were shared by countless men this past winter who wore an array of styles on the streets all around the world.
Therefore before saying au revoir to the season that calls for us to protect our heads in own stylish ways, I wanted to acknowledge some of the hat wearers that made milliners and mad hatters, like myself, happy spectators.
We have beanie, bobbie, trilby and floppy. Say them out loud and they sound like the names belonging to members of a music boy band. We have the baseball cap guy playing base minus the ball, and the newsboy making sure you get the hear all all all about it.
Ruffle your way to the dance floor. If there was a ever an excuse to wear ruffles, prom night would be it. Wearing dresses you can’t move in and aren’t a bit memorable defeats the purpose of going the extra chic mile for your prom outfit. In this case a small amount of ruffles can go a long way.

Recently I gave into a request to help a friend who admits to being so fashionably challenged that her daughter was afraid to have her be the only one there when she started looking for her prom dress.
The first though that went through my head was “how old is my friend to have a teenage daughter?” Second, “am I that old that I have friends with teenage children?” Yikes. Well with age there is fashion wisdom and the realization that I could go through the entire prom shopping experience vicariously through my friend’s daughter.
I look at proms as the teen version of weddings. A whole lot of fuss, primping, pampering and dressing up without restrictions on your attire. You can wear white, or ruffle garments in bright colors, you can even wear rompers on prom night! The options are endless, but I decided to share prom looks that aren’t very traditional, allowing those young ladies to wear these garments or accessories again and not letting it be a one night thing.
It be for a casual day walking around or an evening out with friends, no longer should we look at overalls as a piece of garment that is only restricted to day time, and play dates as we did when we were kids. We’re older and wiser now, right? Therefore, think beyond pairing your overalls with a simple t-shirt and sneakers and dress it up. Continue reading “Denim Overalls Are Back.” »
When you’re a slave to fashion, if there is a will you’ll find a way. Just so happens I’ve found several in order to keep my nickname Ms. Cheeky and avoid being called Ms. Sweaty Checks. I’m a sweater, through the pores that is. It’s a sweating problem that I’ve suffered from most of my life, which makes me an expert on this topic. Through trial and damp error, I’ve figured out which garments to wear during certain seasons of the year, from the fabrics that are sweat friendly to undergarments which prevents those embarrassing moments from happening.
