Sunday Sensation

Below is a quick recap of all the sensational celebrity and fashion news.

Celebrity news
TomKat divorce – even after two weeks, people are still talking about this.  It was a surprise that she filed for divorce but they already reached a settlement and both are ready to move forward.  Good luck & best wishes for Suri.

Kourtney Kardashian – she gave birth to a healthy baby girl named Penelope Scotland Disick on 7/8/12.  Congrats!!

Jessica Biel – in her interview for Instyle Magazine, she finally talks about her engagement stating Justin Timberlake is the one who designed the ring and also confessed that he picks out her outfits.  First we hear Kanye is styling Kim & now Jessica & Justin too! Hmmm….I hope this doesn’t become a trend.

Kimye – seems like Kim has finally found love with Kanye!  He gets her style, supports her business ventures (he was at the new Dash opening on Melrose), and will sacrifice for the others happiness.  Kanye supposedly got a cell phone and provided the number only to Kim so they can talk.  He didn’t want to get tied down by technology so decided to live w /out cell until Kim.  She doesn’t like calling his bodyguard to get to him so he decided to get a cell for himself only  to make Kim happy….aww, I actually like them together.

Sofia Vergara – while celebrating her 40th birthday she was surprised by her boyfriend, Nick Loeb, with a gigantic sparkler, an engagement ring!!!  She said yes so congrats to her!!

From celebrities to royalty, everyone seems to be loving and adding some peplum in their lives.  It flatters women of all shapes and sizes, however, it is especially great for the few of us that are trying to hide the muffin top.  Below are few examples of how to incorporate peplum in your life, from business suit like the Duchess of Cambridge, to night out like Emma Stone, or running every day errands like Kim Kardashian; its one of those pieces that can go from street to chic in a hot minute. I have also included two of my pics to show you how i would style it for a night out or daytime/work attire.  Peplum is available for fashionistas like us at all price point so go get some and treat yourself to a cookie or five cause even if you get a little, shall we say, muffiny you will have your bestie “peplum” to cover for ya!!

Monday Madness

mondaymadness-070912

Monday madness will be all about things that I am currently obsessed with whether it’s a new fashion or exercise trend to a great book or exciting travel destination. So, starting off the “madness” with a fierce new fashion trend – LEATHER in the summer!!!

I never thought leather is even an option in the summertime, sweaty and sticky does not really scream fashionable. But as you can see from these fashionistas below you can work around the stickiness by wearing it as shorts, lose tops, or skirts. Wear the shorts casually like Jada Pinkett-Smith with a plain tee for daytime or dress it up with a statement necklace and killer heels for night out like Lauren Conrad. Emma Stone and Minka Kelly shows how to wear the lose top with summer’s statement pieces printed and white pants; can be worn casually with neutral flats for daytime or with colorful heels and clutch for night look. Lastly, we have Kerry Washington who wears the skirt in both pencil and pleated style: great options for work or business meeting; a far cry from boring old black suits. So, add a little leather to your summer wardrobe this year and turn up the heat but be advised that this sizzling hot look may raise some men’s body temperature, cause serious heart palpitation or even melt them.

Leather Shorts – Urban Outfitters & Asos
Leather Tops – PiperLime & Dillard’s
Skirts – Venus,  pleated & pencil
