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!

Life, fashion and colorful lights….

Confession….I’m kinda addicted to colorful lights …you know….the old timey Christmas lights…the larger ones.  Maybe this is a sign of my aging process….getting a little crazy (or alot) as the years go by.  Maybe it’s kinda like loosening the strings and breathing, laughing, dancing, singing and loving.

Fashion is kinda like that too….we go thru phases of having to dress all corporate like and proper.  We get stuck in the “mommy” rut where all we do is whatever is easy and fits.  As a college student….it can easily become all about sweats.  And then as we age….we can even fall into the “I’m 50” stage…I can’t wear that!

But what I am observing is that young and old are beginning to take more risks….to “step out of the box” so to speak with their wardrobes. Creativity and originality in fashion is still alive.

I’m not talking about being “obsessed” with fashion…but rather having fun with it!…..not letting yourself fall into a rut and always wearing the “expected”.

Adding a little fringe, a little pop of color or alot of bling with accessories will put a swag in your walk:)….Paige jeggingPutting on those dynamite heels for yourself or someone special and adding a sexy top with designer jeans will definitely give you a newfound confidence and glow!

So…I dare you….get with life….take some risks with your fashion…and don’t forget to hang the colored lights!:)

Cheers!

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.

Easing into Tights & Leggings

People have a love/hate relationship with tights.

It’s easy to see why. Tights are notorious for showing up on women in very, very unflattering ways. But wearing tights or leggings doesn’t have to be a fight to the death with the areas of your body that you just aren’t proud. Read on.

Not ready to commit yet to the jeans that are needed for these cold, cool months coming up, but embarrassed by  your pale legs? Tights and leggings are perfect for you then.

Wear them under that long summer tunic that you’re not quite ready to give up yet. Thinner tights will keep your legs covered and cozy, while thicker ones are perfect as the weather turns icy.

Wear your tights tucked into boots (so very in right now), paired with flats (casual), or heels (stylish) for a uniquely different look each way.

We have some great basic black leggings available in our store and on our website. Get them today before they’re gone!

have you seen our phone charms…just so dang cute:)

Most of us are looking for something to make us smile…to remind us that it IS about the little things:)….and of course…a quick and painless fix to our to our daily shopping craze!

Introducing the cell phone charm and it’s dang cuteness!….that’s right…dang cuteness.  (that’s my southern affliction upon a modern day accessory)

I don’t know why I have brought the word “dang” back into my vocabulary.  Somehow, I am really trying to blend my “true Southern girl” with my “contemporary trying to keep it all going” girl.  Therefore….dang cute:)
