Sunday Spotlight: The Duchess of Cambridge

This week instead of my usual recap post, I am going to do a recap of my favorites outfits the Duchess wore during her South Asia Jubilee Tour.  I thought she looked elegant, feminine yet comfortable for the hot climate.

Monday Madness

Mad about accordion pleats!  My obsession with accordion pleats started when I saw Carrie Bradshaw aka Sarah Jessica Parker in that blue Halston Heritage dress.  That dress was so modern, fresh, chic and completely effortless partly because of the light fabric but mostly because of the pleats.  If you take way the pleats, then it’ll just look like a boring, blah dress.

This look is so easy to take from day to night in a flash; take a cue from these stylish gals.  From the uber fashionista SJP, who also wore it to the 2010 MET Ball, to Taylor Swift, the Duchess of Cambridge and first lady Michelle Obama, everyone seems to love these pleats.  Dress it down like Taylor for running errands, with a knit top and black pumps for work like the Duchess, or in a flashy fabric like Michelle O for a date night.  Below are some of my accordion pleats collection and also retailers where you can get yours.

Let me know if you love/hate accordion pleats.

Retailers:
Forever 21 skirt
Topshop top
Kohls dress

Tuesday trendy is all about trying the latest and most talked about trends of the season for fashion, hair, make up and nails.  You will get my report on what trends are must try and what should be in exile.  Starting off this “trendy” report on one of my favs – PEPLUM!!!
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!!
