This is my first handbag purchase from Shein so I’m anxious to see it and “road test” it. It has to be able to hold a big wallet, cell phone and cover, large headphones, a drink bottle, among other items. Just the normal items you need to get you through the work day 😉

What woman doesn’t feel more feminine when walking in stilettos? They make you walk with a purpose – you have to step carefully lest you land in a sidewalk crack or grating in the pavement – and they make a killer sound. Face it, clogs and platforms can’t quite compare with the sound of stilettos clicking across the floor.

Stiletto heel(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
It is named after the stiletto dagger, the phrase being first recorded in the early 1930s. Stiletto heels may vary in length from 2.5 centimetres (1 inch) to 25 cm (10 inches) or more if a platform sole is used, and are sometimes defined as having a diameter at the ground of less than 1 cm (slightly less than half an inch). Stiletto-style heels 5 cm (2.0 in) or shorter are called kitten heels.
Not all high slim heels merit the description stiletto. The extremely slender original Italian-style stiletto heels of the late 1950s and very early 1960s were no more than 5 mm (0.20 in) in diameter for much of their length, although the heel sometimes flared out a little at the top-piece (tip). After their demise in the mid-late 1960s, such slender heels were difficult to find until recently due to changes in the way heels were mass-produced. A real stiletto heel has a stem of solid steel or alloy. The more usual method of mass-producing high shoe heels, i.e. moulded plastic with an internal metal tube for reinforcement, does not achieve the true stiletto shape. Read more…

Kimonos were trending last year and look to be just as huge in 2016. Their lovely flowing lines are a natural fit for the 70’s style invasion with flared legs and chunky heels.

“For Spring 2016, I was inspired by a recent trip to Tokyo, and traditional Japanese kimono prints and folding techniques. I was interested in the play between structure and volume, between discipline and femininity.” (from elle.com)
“Tokyo Fashion Week decided to wrap up the spring 2016 action with something a bit unusual: a runway show featuring kimonos designed by a rock star. Fans — many of them screaming his name — packed the audience to see Yoshiki, a member of the heavy metal band X Japan.” (from wwd.com)

Getting ready for a blind date can be a little more difficult than preparing for a date with someone you already know. You may wonder what style your date likes or how he’ll be dressed. Approach this situation as an exciting opportunity to meet someone new, and you’re bound to have more fun than if you look at it as a daunting task.
Get as much information as you can beforehand regarding your date. If a mutual friend arranged the blind date, consult your friend to find out what you need to know about your blind date. You can find out a lot of great information that can help your blind date run more smoothly. For example, if your friend tells you that your blind date is an animal activist, you can then avoid some awkwardness by not wearing leather pants.
Consider your destination. If you already have the entire date planned out, then dress accordingly for the things you’re supposed to do. Don’t wear jeans if you’re going out for an elegant dinner; by the same token, don’t dress formally if you’re meeting up for some bowling. If you aren’t sure what the blind date will entail, dress nicely in a way that will allow you to engage in a variety of activities.
Consider comfort. You may think that you look best in stiletto heels or a three-piece suit, but whatever you wear should be comfortable enough that you can spend the date getting to know the other person, instead of thinking about how uncomfortable you feel. While you do want to look attractive for your date, you don’t want to do it at the expense of your comfort. Read the full article here
From eHarmony (eH Advice):
Don’t let your first date attire ruin your chances for a second date. What you wear is the perfect opportunity to present who you are before you say a word. To win your date over with captivating style, consider the location, time of day and weather as these factors will weigh heavily on your attire choice and stay away from our top five things you shouldn’t wear on a first date.
1) Don’t Try a new Trend
Reveal the real you, and stick to clothing you actually wear. “Don’t get in a costume-like outfit,” says Keylee Sanders, owner of the successful consulting and styling company Style Studio and a former Miss Teen USA. “Dress in something you would wear on a regular basis because hopefully you’ll see this person a second date. Stick to your true style self or fashion self on that first date.”
2) Don’t Reveal too Much
First impressions are quick to be made, hard to get rid of and set the tone for the entire date. Ask yourself what your outfit says about you. There’s a difference between wanting to look flirty and sexy and leaving nothing to the imagination. “That doesn’t mean you need to dress dowdy or frumpy, for example if you’re going to wear a short skirt, don’t wear a low cut top,” says the former beauty queen. A good rule of thumb is to choose one area of your body you want to reveal—whether that’s an above the knee skirt to show off your legs, a subtle scooped neck blouse to enhance your décolleté or an off the shoulders sweater to feature a graceful neckline.

The designers at Polyvore were given a preview and asked to create fashion sets for a contest that Rebecca herself will judge – here is mine:
One gets the feeling that Rebecca Minkoff’s customer might be most familiar with the designer’s seasonal muses from, say, a Pinterest board. Still, if Minkoff can turn on her young clientele to the likes of Patti Smith or Françoise Hardy, as some of the icons she’s envisioned through her kicky clothes, more power to her. Read more…

My favorite way to wear lace is layering over a solid color – add a frilly touch to a functional outfit. Back in the 80’s I had a pair of light blue denims that were covered in white lace – cost me a pretty penny at Gidding Jenny – and I loved them!
Get tips here from Woman’s Day:
Ok, so I’m not a big fan of the rustic and lace trend, but I may be in the minority here – so please enjoy these popular offerings from the talented designers at Zazzle:

If you LOVE PURPLE as much as I do, you want to wear it all the time. But purple is one of those colors that can be a bit tacky if overdone. Stay classy by wearing mostly black and add purple as an accent. Wear a purple scarf and jewelry or carry a tasteful bag. Brighten up the drudgery of winter by adding a pair of rich purple gloves to a cozy black coat.

Black jeans are an absolute staple item – great with a sweater or blouse on “Casual Friday” at work, or with a sweatshirt for a trip to the grocery. Plus they are black – so they go with everything. I’m one of those people whose closet would be near empty if all the black clothing were removed. Did I mention that they are black?
