Hollywood Fashion Tape – secret of the stars

everything in it’s place when hitting the Red Carpet or appearing on stage, every person that has ever had these situations deals with how to keep everything in it’s place….I’m talking about the clothing.

One of the best little items that a girl can keep at home, in the office and in the purse/briefcase is Hollywood Fashion Tape.  This is quitely simply double sided sticky tape that is meant for clothing and skin.

It works miracles!….Try taping your bra straps to a sundress or other top so that they don’t peek out.  Maybe your blouse is a little too deep for the office…a little fashion tape in the right cleavage area and voila!….

your top becomes modest.  It also works great to hold a blouse that is gapping or an emergency hemline fix!

Hollywood Fashion Tape® is the easy-to-use, clear double-stick, “do everything” apparel and body tape!

Hollywood Fashion Tape’s specially formulated adhesive is gentle on skin, hypoallergenic and leaves no residue on fabrics.  The clear tape doesn’t cover up the skin’s natural color and is more discreet and fabric-friendly than safety pins.

How does it work?  You get 36 pre-cut, 3-inch disposable strips (3” x ½” actual size) in each box. Each strip of tape contains a removable backing on each side. You simply peel the backing from one side of the tape, press the tape firmly to your skin or fabric, remove the other backing, and apply the item to be secured.  It’s as easy as peel, stick and go!

Bootie call!….I’m talking about boots!

It’s a season that women look forward to….a time when the weather just begs you to put on those boots that you’ve been dying to wear  and march with a deliberate gait.

And this season…there is an ocean of styles to choose from.

How about this one from Gee Wawa?

The color is so versatile and I can attest to the wearability and comfort

of this brand!  What’s great also about this lace up style boot is that it can either be worn in a regular height fashion or in the “oh so hot” right now look of “over the knee”.   The newest over the knee boots are casually rugged and Gee Wawa doesn’t disappoint for those seeking this look.

Pair this hot boot with a pair of skinnies, a jacket or oversized sweater and enjoy the cool casual vibe!

 

And …then there is the “clog boot”… like the Lynnea from UGG Australia.

Women love the versatility of this boot because it can we worn cuffed up or down.  Obviously, it’s a hot item because the word is that this boot is completely sold out by UGG….you can only find in stores with available inventory now.

Pair either of these styles with jeans or dresses for an updated look.

What’s your boot obsession for Fall/ Winter?

Get your Camel on:)….Fall 2010

Camel…neutral in color….2010 fashion trend color statement…

Seems blah….even maybe insignificant…but this could actually be THE piece that adds the frosting, so to speak,  to your Fall/Winter wardrobe for 2010-2o11.

XCVI gives us this magnificent piece….versatilly easy….adapatable to almost any look….and also surprisingly budget friendly for such a fashionable piece.

Always in tune with the “on the go” female of today….XCVI doesn’t disappoint with this contemporary piece that will go with almost everything.  In the photo above it is shown belted…but is easily worn as the overcoat for your everyday fashions.

And if you’re lucky enough to score a pair of the UGG Lynnea boots, that are completely sold out….except for what is left in the stores…the chestnut color will be the perfect boot addition to your new camel coat.

UGG Lynnea, wear it cuffed down or up

Good luck!…I’m sure that both items will not be around for long!

Cheers ladies as we prepare for the wintry blasts that are sure to hit us very soon:)

Layering

Now that the heat has finally broke here in North Carolina, it’s time to start thinking about your fall clothing options. What will you wear to keep you warm and cozy on the upcoming cool days?

Layering is one of the best ways to keep yourself warm without being bulked down with too much. Just because it’s cold doesn’t mean you have to stick your tank tops in storage.

We just got in these spaghetti strap tank tops from NikiBiki and already they are flying out of the store. They are seamless, soft and super stretchy (one size fits all), perfect for wearing alone or under a top. I know I wore mine all weekend when I lounged around the house in sweatpants.

Worn for decoration (have a hint of the tank top poking out from under your shirt) or for warmth, you really can’t go wrong with throwing on a tank top.

Short Boot Style….the ankle boot dilemna

Finally….officially Fall is here!….(sigh).  Boot fanatics everywhere are planning how they will wear last year’s favorite pair  and this year’s new styles.

Tips for Wearing Ankle Boots

  • Choose your heel height wisely. For most of us, flat ankle boots will be a more practical option than their high-heeled counterparts. For fancier occasions, ultra high-heeled platform booties are a stylish, showstopping option.
  • Watch the proportions. Because they are so small, ankle boots can look awkward with fuller silhouettes up top (think boyfriend jeans or a full skirt), but are a great option if you’re trying to showcase your legs. Show off those legs by paring ankle boots with leggings, skinny jeans, or short skirts and dresses.

    When pairing up with leggings or skinny jeans…most ladies like to keep the top longer and a little looser…like this one from XCVI.

  • They also look amazing when worn with tights.
  • Notice the rise. Ankle boots can hit at, below, or slightly above your ankle. Though all of these rises can work with pants or leggings, getting the rise-to-leg ratio right with skirts and dresses can be a little confusing. It doesn’t have to be! For the most part, the higher the rise of the boots, the shorter your skirt or dress should be. Boots with a higher rise paired with a longer skirt shortens the look of your legs.
