I hear a whispering in the wind and it is telling me “Post WWll France”, get the image? It’s simple, fresh and eloquent for work and play. Go for a chiffon ruffle blouse from none other than Miley Cyrus herself at Walmart only $12 (Ok I cringed too when I heard she had a fashion line, but I’ll be darn that if it wasn’t cute and affordable). Match this look with Button-up bow blouses, Short-sleeve Knit dresses and did I mention Plaid? There is no bigger sensation right now then plaid, from the West Coast to the East Coast. So go ahead and put your own take on it, either it’s a button-up shirt, tunic or dress. For your bottom half, go for simple pencil skirts, pleaded slacks and the casual, dark denim skinny jeans. The Best place for affordable adorable Clothes is at Urban-outfitters where their blooming with simple and classic attire.

Shoes: Girl where did you get those kicks?

Four words…Lace up Ankle Boots. They are the Hot Tamale of shoes and of course they go amazingly awesome with your vintage outfits. So we have two options, either you’ve been saving that pretty penny and decide to fork it over for Bottega Veneta Leather Nero Calf Ankle Boots for $890, or you’re like me and yell “THAT’S MY RENT MONEY!” We sign up for option B, Enzo Angiolini Lace-up Booties for $70 at Nordstrom. If you’re not digging the ankle boot style then just try Nordstrom for fashionably affordable shoes. Ladies don’t be afraid to match these fall shoes with season colored nylons, such as burnt yellow, Charcoal Grey or antique white (depending on outfit).

Accessories: The Never-ending story.

Oversized Bows
Oversized Bows

It all boils down to this, over sized Bows. Pinning the bows to your clothes, hair or tying it around your neck is great for jazzing up an outfit. Once you’v placed these decedent accessories anywhere you’re golden. Attack of the hair Accessories! Go for pixie barrettes, braided wraps, bow hair-bands and floral pins. Again a great place for this is Urban-outfitter. Looking for something local? Try Target’s Accessories section, I cannot stress this enough. Baby its cold outside. What I’ve come to found out is that the Simply Vera collection from Vera Wang located at Kohl’s is the best place to get scarf’s and hats. Search for brown faux leather driving gloves to give you a girl meets James Dean look. For your beaten Nails, treat them to OPI nail polish la Collection de France or The Matte Collection for a much needed pick-me up. For Earrings and Necklaces, channel your inner Jackie-O and stick with classic pearls. Eyewear, if you’re like me and is vision challenge then I got a special treat for you! I have literally been stopped in public numerous times for my glasses and every time I tell them “I got them from Fabulous Fanny’s”. This Little shop located in New York Specializes in Vintage Eyewear frames. For example the 1750’s SRO “Allure” Glasses for $75 would be the pièce de résistance in your Vintage Clothing Collection. Don’t worry about vision centers; they are usually friendly about putting lenses in.

Makeup: Vampires and Countesses?

I bet you a YSL shiny lip plumper that every time you turn the channel you’ve seen something with a vampire on it. The World is swimming in the undead and of course so is the fashion world. Starlets are dying their hair dark and powering their skins. The Times of self Tanners and Baking under the sun had stop to a screeching halt…for now. Instead of opting for the Lindsey Lohan look, try your actual skin color foundation.

  • Prep your skin by washing it with facial soap and cleansing it with a skin Toner.
  • Apply Photo Finish From Smashbox $36. This smooth blend of vitamins and antioxidants soften and perfects skin, for a flawless finish.
  • Apply your preferred liquid Foundation with a cosmetic sponge, going inward to outward. Example: From your cheek to your ear.
  • Apply rouge to your cheeks, blending on the apple of your cheeks upwards towards your temples, lightly.
  • My little secret I picked up doing make-up for theatre is mix light powered foundation with a little bit of baby powdered. With a powder brush, apply lightly all over your face. The powder sets the liquid foundation for an all day wear. It also absorbs the oil, giving you a semi-matted powdered look. Hello Robert Pattinson!

For your eyes you can go for the dramatic smoky look, or the simple black liquid eyeliner, mascara approach. Get a hold of Smash Box fall collection Palettes $42 at Sephora.

Lips go with glossy nude appearance. If you want a little more of a color then try some Stainiac lip stain $15 at Sephora. Remember Ladies you pay for what you get in Makeup!

Hair: How did you do your…DO?

What goes excellent with the Classic look? Classic hairstyles duh! Here’s what we got, bangs of course are back, or did they even leave? Anyways pin straight hair with bangs and an attached hair accessory is sensuous. You also can try the wavy pined up hair. These are the styles marching down the fashion walkways. Want the bang look but don’t want to comment to the old chopping block, then this is the right article for you. The Wondrous Faux Hair duo is at it again. Jessica Simpson and Ken Paves are back to their synthetic ways, coming out with a line of Clip in Bangs, $30 at Ulta stores. Holy Glory Roll, Let’s party like its 1940’s? Pining up your hair might seem horrific and tedious but in reality its better then letting your scraggly dreads become a monster in Fall Winds and winter wetness. My suggestion is to purchase How to Create 1940s Hairstyles — Instructions and Illustrations for 17 Swing Era Styles by George Russell $13 at Amazon. Don’t want a book, head to Youtube.com for how-to-videos. Just simply search 1940’s pin-up hair tutorials, go ahead try it out. For the Freaky Fly always try Weather Works™ Weather-Proofing™ Style Sealant Crème from John Frieda. This product is great for keeping your follicles under control but not strong enough to leave thin hair feeling oily or gunky. Just apply before or after blow drying (I prefer before). It is the perfect light weight solution for your inner hair demons. With that in mind, never be too safe and always wrap a silk scarf over your hair in destructive weather. It only seems right if you spent all that time making yourself look like Royalty. How was that warm cider? Did your wallet come waddling back with its tail between its legs? With a Few reasonably priced 2016 Fall Beauty Examples, let’s Get up and feel the Fashion Noise. Remember stay warm is your Classic Button-up Pea coat.

Fashion Don’ts for the Workplace

Office Fashion
Office Fashion

Here is some advice to all of you women out there that are living in another decade. I may be one of you, but I am fighting it, and you should too. Here is some advice to help you stand out (or not so much) in the workplace.

  1. Follow the dress code. You should consider your workplace dress code and follow it. You may not feel like it or notice it, but you can bet that every one of your coworkers notices when you don’t wear hose in a law office or are showing an inch too much leg. If your workplace is conservative, you need to be too.
  2. Likewise, if you work in a fun environment by all means have fun. But, if you want to get ahead in that environment you should also look professional. Think about how your look will translate to your customers or clients. Tacky is not fun or cute. Don’t take it too far.
  3. Don’t be a dud. I see women wearing giant sneakers with their suits to walk to work. I see people in sweat suits working out. There are more fashionable items for every environment. If you walk a long distance to your office, wear some black Sketchers or ballet flats. Ditch the sweat suits for yoga pants and a t-shirt. Don’t weigh yourself down with twenty bags either. Downsize!
  4. Get a new look. Fake nails, permed hair, fake orange tan? What do these items have in common? They mean you are trying to hard to be something you are not! Don’t be high maintenance. Enhance what you have going for you. It should come naturally and not be forced. Besides, guys don’t notice how hard you are trying anyway. They think you look just as good without it.
  5. Don’t get stuck in the past. While you don’t want to spend the rest of your life dressing like your teenage daughter (because that is a major fashion don’t), try on the new shapes and styles that come out every year. You might find some new things that really flatter you, and that is always good. Just don’t try too hard.

So my fashion advice today is to stop trying so hard, and go with the flow. That means dress code plus a few things that make you who you are, as long as they are not what makes a slob or a diva who she is. Got it?
