Hitched Up Skirt

Skirts may not be for everyone, especially if you don’t have the legs for them––but if you do, here’s an interesting twist on a classic design. Introducing the HITCHED UP SKIRT. Sure, it might not be all that “new” considering skirts have been around since the 1940s but it’s a style and look you don’t see every day.

So, if you are someone who just loves your skirts (and your legs) and you have a great pair of boots to show off along with it, then you should definitel try one out.

Fashion Meets Food

I attended a garden party this weekend and one of the desserts was grape salad. It was so good I got the recipe and made it for Easter and now it's easily become my favorite go-to dessert. Definitely would make a good summer bbq dessert.

Retro makes a Comeback pt.2

So the first part took care of the 70s and now I’ll tie in the 50s and 60s.

The nerdy librarian look is so in. Who said if you wore glasses you were a nerd? A blast from the past, 1950s cat eye glasses are in!





To go with the glasses you can opt for the total 1950s get up, of course books, Internet and the TV show Mad Men are a great reference. Or you can make it modern like the last picture of the model wearing a tank and shorts, it’s totally up to you, the thing about trends is to have fun with them!

I myself am a 50s girl and dressed the part when I met 1950s movie star Tippy Hendren (Alfred Hitchcock’s
The Birds and Marnie) and Susan Claassen a.k.a. Edith Head a very big costume designer from the 1920s-1980s. Needless, to say, they both liked my look.




And if you want to wear heels but feel that you can’t and still keep the ballet flat look, go for kitten heels. They’re about an inch and half high. Although I’m a stiletto kind of girl, if that’s what you want, go for it! The lovely Audrey Hepburn wore kitten heels and true to form, she made it look stylish.




And here are a few more pics to show how hot this trend is!

Retro makes a Comeback pt. 1

“Don’t call it a come back, it’s been here for years.” Retro is making a comeback, actually it’s not just coming back it’s here! At the 2011 Golden Globes Awards, Heidi Klum wore a very funky and retro Marc Jacobs dress complete with 70s style hair and bangles.




J.Lo rocked it back in 2001, oh so effortlessly the denim jumpsuit and floppy hat were a staple, and soon everyone followed suit. Even Britney Spears rocked the red vinyl catsuit in her 2001 “Oops…I Did It Again” video inspired by Elizabeth Hurley’s black catsuit in 1997, Austin Powers. The fashion trend that is already here, is very fun and formal.

Formal




Fun



Now onto bell bottom pants. I know it may seem frightening at first but it’s perfectly normal! If done the right way you can look fabulous and not dated. Always important, wear high heels, clogs, and thick heels, not stilettos, especially the funky design kind, it takes away from the fullness of the pants. Always wear a slimming top and make sure it’s tucked in, you can accessorize it with a belt chain or a belt, preferably thin.



If you do wear a top over the waist of the jeans make sure it’s not a full voluminous top or else you’ll look like a tent! Something cute and ruffly with a little flounce will do.



If you want to find another alternative to the bell bottom and still keep the 70s look a flared or wide leg pants will do or you can opt to go for a more feminine look, the wonderful wrap dress designed by Diane von Frustenberg that became a 70s staple, it hides those pesky bulges that you may have and you can sport your floppy hat and clogs along with it!
