To The Floor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hot new trend alert!!! Long Dresses with a vintage belt!!! Try belting your favorite, comfy, cozy maxi dress with a vintage( or at least vintage looking) medium sized belt! Finish the look off with a pair of riding boots and you've got a fabulous weekend ensemble! This look is also perfect for traveling. Simple dressing is what I'm all about as of late and I love the fact that you can jazz up an otherwise blah or not so blah dress with a basic accessory for a brand new you! It's easy to do and looks great on most figures!!! Check out the dresses found at Shopbop and belts at the always affordable, having a sale, Gap. You'll be right on trend and effortlessly chic!!!

She's Got Leg-Ins!!!!!!!!!!!

Once again, denim has been revamped! For all the ladies who aren't quite sure how to rock the skinny jeans, try on the denim legging! Much easier to find a fit, so that makes them much easier to wear; not to mention the denim legging is much more affordable, in some cases! Here are two ways to showcase those Legs! One, try a true denim legging, like these from one of my favorite denim brands, Joe's. This legging features a dark rinse and ankle zips, which really gives off the appearance of a skinny jean, but much more flattering without back or side pockets and it retails for $78 bucks! How do you say steal? Try them on with a cut bootie and oversized sweater and you are ready to strut your stuff! For another play on the leggy legging, try a faux denim legging, by Daddy Long Legs Leggings, available for $38 at Bloomindale's! These are another fav! I love pairing mine with a slouchy tee, blazer, and OTK boot and KaPow, I'm ready for lunch with the ladies!!! Comfy and affordable! Two things that Im all about for the new year!!! Aren't you???? Go out and try on some Leggings Ladies! You're sure to turn heads in which ever look you choose!!!

Live Long and Leg It!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Color Me Neurtral!!!!

As thoughts of Spring go looming through your head, you are most likely thinking of ways to liven up your wardrobe palette...Think again! This Spring think Neutral!!!! Earthtones, monochromatic, simplicity, all hues that work well in any closet! Think shades of beige, creams, ivory, and tan. Basic. Simple. Sweet...The Spring '10 collections of Lanvin, Miu Miu, and Ralph Lauren all featured simple, neutral shades, which can easily be transferred to the likes of Banana Republic and The Gap, for a more affordable twist on this sure to be staple for your Spring collection! And oh, did I mention how easy it is to mix bold brights with a simple shade of cream or ivory! Think a sprinkle of Hot Pink, for added dimension!!! Check out what I found at Shopbop and Anthro for starters or try doing a basic search for an array of neutral shades on! The selections are endless!!!

Live Long and Be Simple Chic!!!!!!!!!!!

Coming Soon!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok ladies of the DC Metro area its finally here...My prayers were answered and maybe some of yours were too...Anthropologie arrives to the shops at Chevy Chase this Thursday! Yes! That's right! I learned first hand that when you ask, it will come! Chevy Chase, Maryland has become a prime time spot for shopping. With the recently opened Bloomingdale's and the high end boutiques of Chevy Chase row, Anthro is certainly a welcomed addition for those with high and low budgets and from what I can tell, the store is amazing!!! With the loss of the Rockville store, which housed major sales, we gain the brand new store at the Shops of Friendship Heights. Right on the DC/MD line, everything you need is right here and metro accessible! What a delight!!! The grand opening takes place this Thursday, January 14th! Can you see me smiling!!! Im overjoyed with this new arrival!!!! Hopefully, you will be too!!

Live Long and Shop Well!!!!!!!!!!!!

Set It Off...Runway Style!!!!!

Happy New Year Fashionistas and Fashionistos!!! Hope 2010 is off to a great start for you and yours! I'm sure everyone has made their resolutions list and checking it twice...Me on the other hand, just living in the now and trying to do better than the day before. Babysteps...With that said, the beginning of a new year always means trying to save a dollar, especially after having spent your life's saving on holiday gifts (via presents and/or travel) whatever the case may be, money is tight, but you still want to look fashionably fabulous? Right? Well, I've got just the remedy for your under the weather wallet...Rent the Runway!!! Look fabulous and chic at a fraction of the cost! Why spend a mint on that Marc Jacobs frock, that you are only going to wear once or maybe even twice, when you can rent it, wear it, and move on to the next hot item of the month! Rent the Runway allows you to wear your favorite designer to that upcoming wedding, work event, or just a night on the town with that special guy or the gals, and return it with no strings attached. So here's the skinny...Peruse looks from designers like herve leger, catherine malandrino, helmut lang and alice + olivia, or search by occasion (birthday party, new years eve, winter wedding, meet the parents). choose your fave look in two sizes (at no extra cost) and pick the date you need the dress. rental fees range from $50 to $200 and you can have it from four to eight days. not sure if you're a haute hippie or just cavalli girl? rent a second designer for only an additional $25. new yorkers, take note; RTR will messenger it over to you the same day. after your date, shower or wedding, just put the dress into the provided envelope and pop it in a mailbox. the company will take care of all the dry cleaning. and look out for accessories, special designer capsule collections and a bridesmaid program in the future.

Are you convinced? Since I am a member of Julib, I was privy to an insiders invitation click on this link and you can be privy too!!!

Try it out and save a dime while Setting it Off in 2010~

Live Long, Save and Be Fashionable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
