WHAT TO WEAR NOW - DAYS 6,7,8
Happy 2011! Believe that every day is worthy of your dresses, your red lipstick, your blow dried hair. Have a fabulous year (and new decade) ahead!
Hectic holidays = late blog entries. Here's an overdue update on another personal challenge: I've successfully tried 8 of the 11 In Style Holiday suggestions.
"Toss all the old rules of what colors to wear when—
pretty pastels provide a much-needed pick-me-up in fall and winter.
For evening, look for beaded styles that offer a bit of coverage at the neckline,
like Eva Mendes' Christian Dior lavender dress.
Another alternative is an iridescent fabric similar to Kate Bosworth's
shimmery Calvin Klein with 3/4 sleeves."
PRETTY IN PINK?
Powder pink cardigan, Zara.
Beige tank top, F21.
Pearl strands, Greenhills.
(I don't like my smoky eyes interpretation hence the pink bar, hehe.)
"Shake up your stockings drawer by adding some sexy lace tights—
a stylish update of opaque black.
Show off shapely calves like Paz Vega by wearing them with a below-the-knee dress.
Feeling a little more risqué? Taylor Swift brings the focus up to her thighs
with lace stockings, a flouncy mini skirt and tall boots."
Black shift dress, Celine
Black lace stockings, Marks & Spencer
"Sequin jackets aren’t just for showgirls anymore—or nighttime for that matter.
For a causal look, try one over a silk shirt and dark jeans like Elle Macpherson.
For a cocktail party, steal SJP's style and wear a longer version over a minidress."
