Little White Dress

I can’t believe I waited so long to talk about the little white dress for summer!!  I love this trend!!!  A much needed break from the little black dress and so season appropriate.  There is no shortage of white dresses in different fabrics and lengths.  Gone are the days when we only associate white with weddings for summer time (though I still think wearing white to weddings is very inappropriate & rude, so wear it anywhere except a wedding) .  Celebs are wearing it to death on most red carpets and in their daily lives; it’s so easy to dress up and down and you can definitely mix it with colors.  White  is universally flattering on all skin tones and you will surely find a cut in a dress that will suit your beautiful body; a trend we can all rock!!  See below all the celebs in white and I also added my pics to show you how I wear this trend.

LEOPARD PRINT!!

Yes, I know a lot of you associate leopard print with Jersey Shore’s Snooki and immediately get turned off. But it can be very classy if you dress it appropriately and can add some interesting textures in your house. Leopard print is very versatile; it can be used on jewelries, shoes, pants and dresses to home decors like pillows, throws, lampshades or photo frames.

If you are afraid that its too bold for you, try as accessory first like a clutch, bangles or shoes. It’s great way to jazz up boring, old LBD, LWD or add a bit more oomph to a bold, colorful outfit or add a little spice in your home . You can wear it 24 hours a day, casually for daytime and dress it up for night out.

See how Emma Watson, Olivia Palermo and Beyonce wears leopard in the daytime as accessories ( scarf, flats and sunglasses respectively).

Nicole Richie and Jessica Alba shows us how to dress up a casual daytime outfit with leopard print booties and jeans.

Finally, we have Brooklyn Decker, Paula Patton, Halle Berry wearing short leopard print dresses and Jennifer Lopez, Khloe Kardashian and Eva Mendez wearing long leopard dresses, all dressed it up for night out; also added a pic of a living room with some leopard pillows.

Below are some of my leopard collection and also retailers where you can get some for yourself.

Add some leopard in your life and unleash the wild animal in you!

Tuesday Trendy

This week trendy report is on something that I am not really feeling – crop tops! Celebs of all ages are wearing crop tops from red carpets to everyday errand runs. But are crop tops a trend that’s suitable for all of us? In my humble opinion, it’s not. While there is nothing really wrong with the trend in itself, you can definitely rock it if you have the body and confidence to pull it off; it’s not something that is universally flattering and you have to be very careful with the fabric and cuts you choose to wear on the bottom while wearing the tops. Curvier or a little older women, in real life not in Hollywood (cause if you are there, you can basically get away with anything, lol), can’t really wear this trend. I think this is one trend that I will leave for the teenagers and skinny minis.

Below are pics of Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Gwyneth Paltrow, Rihanna and Zoe Saldana looking hot in their crop tops; Miley & Selena even wears it during the day. I also added pics of Leona Lewis, Megan Good and Kim Kardashian (Kimmy wearing the same piece as Gweny) looking not so great in their crop tops; as you can see even though these are beautiful ladies, the cuts or fabrics they choose are simply not flattering. What is your opinion on crop tops? Love it or leave it?

Mad about Ikat!!! Yes, I am completely in love with Ikat print. I like the repetition of the pattern and its a great alternative to wearing florals or stripes (though floral Ikat print is available). This print not only looks good in clothes, it’s looks great on shoes and home decorating items like lamp shades, cups/plates and pillows. It comes in various colors and if you are wearing it, then it easily goes from day to night. See how Katie Holmes and Khloe K. wears it casually during the day and Kristen Bell and Rachel Zoe dresses it up for night. Finally, our first lady shows us how to wear it for work. Below are some Ikat print items that you can get for yourself.

Retailers:

Ikat pillows
Ikat kitchen items
Ikat lampshade

Express Ikat dress
Topshop dress

Ikat shoes
