I don't like to pick on pregnant women, but there's no way I can ignore the Ellie Saab gown Elsa Pataky chose to wear to the 86th Annual Academy Awards. Did you see it? I mean, kudos to her for fully embracing her baby bump and trying to have fun on the red carpet, but there was absolutely nothing flattering about that dress. I hate to say it but I'm not the only who feels this way--apparently everyone on Fashion Police thought it was a hot mess!Continue Reading >
Your body goes through so many changes when you are pregnant, which means you change the way you dress. You adapt your style to work for you during pregnancy. Sometimes that means buying maternity clothes, sometimes it means buying maternity-friendly styles with the added benefit that you can keep wearing them when you are no longer pregnant. But what about shoes? I wish I could tell you, Oh you can just keep wearing all your shoes even your stilettos during pregnancy, but I would totally be lying to you.
No, there are no "official" maternity shoes, but you may find that your feet get larger or swell during pregnancy. You may also find that what is comfortable when you are not pregnant isn't all that comfortable when your body is busy making another human being. Not to worry, there are options and they are even cute. Plus great excuse to go shoe shopping!
Don't get discouraged by this season's polar vortex. Before you know it, the weather will get warmer and it'll be time to pull out those stylish skirts from your closet. I'd rather wear a playful skirt over a pair of pants or jeans any day of the week. It makes me feel and look instantly cute without having to put much effort. This spring, it's all about skirts, from pleated to pencil, and even vintage inspired A-line ones that hit pass the knee. But what do you do if you can't find a style that flatters your shape? Don't worry girl, there's a skirt out there for every body type!Continue Reading >
When it comes to fashion, Jennifer Lopez is definitely full of surprises and unfortunately not all of those surprises are good. She wowed me earlier this week with that sexy black cutout dress by Cushnie Et Ochs. In fact, I'm still trying to find a similar version in my size and price range. But what in world was she wearing last night on American Idol? Homegirl showed up in the craziest lace outfit known to man. You have to see this thing!Continue Reading >
Most little girls love to play dress up, but how many of them can actually design and create their own dresses? Well, one 4-year-old girl, nicknamed Mayhem, makes her own dresses with her super crafty mommy and they're ALL made out of paper. And trust me, these aren't just paper dresses, they're paper dresses fit for the runway. These two have recreated a Taylor Swift dress, a Kerry Perry dress and even that gorgeous red gown Lupita Nyong'o wore to the Golden Globes. You have to see them for yourself to believe it!
I'm really looking forward to watching the Oscars this Sunday and have to admit besides seeing who wins, I'm excited to see what everyone will be wearing! A lot of my favorite Latina celebs tend to make the "Best Dressed" lists for always hitting the red carpet with timeless style and I'm sure this year will be no different. I decided to reflect back on some of the best Academy Awards red carpet looks of all time. Check them out!Continue Reading >
Honorary Latina Lupita Nyong' o is amazing. I have to admit, I kind of have a girl crush on her. The 12 Years a Slave star, who's up for an Oscar this Sunday for Best Supporting Actress, is not only naturally gorgeous, but she's also quite the fashionista. I've been style stalking her since she hit the Golden Globe Award party in that breathtaking red crimson gown by Ralph Lauren. I don't think anyone on the face of this planet has ever looked that good in red--not even my favorite Latina celebs. Sorry Sofia Vergara!
Speaking of Latinas, did I mention that Lupita was born in Mexico? That's right, apparently her family moved there from Kenya. She may not be Latina by blood, but the chick is passionate about the culture and even speaks Spanish--so in my book she's an honorary Latina!Continue Reading >
I have a confession to make: I watch American Idol ... but not for the music, for Jennifer Lopez. I totally watch it just to see what she's wearing and I'm not afraid to admit it. Oh come on, you know you do it too! Seriously, did you see what she wore last night to the American Idol after-party? She showed up in a sexy, Cushnie Et Ochs LBD that featured a number of cutouts. I never even liked this trend until now!Continue Reading >
I'm SO tired of seeing celebs walk the red carpet without underwear on. Paris Hilton recently went commando for her 33rd birthday party at West Hollywood's Greystone Manor on Saturday night. The loca showed up in a hot pink Alon Livne dress, which featured a thigh-high slit that revealed everything from her booty to her va-jay-jay. I mean, if she was planning on putting it all out there, she should have at least had a wax job!Continue Reading >
Eva Mendes might have all the money in the world, but that doesn't mean she doesn't appreciate a good bargain. In fact, Eva probably spends less money on her clothes than most of us do. She recently revealed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that she buys most of her clothing at Salvation Army and Goodwill. "I just love the find, looking, and I am cheap, so I really like that--a bargain," she told Ellen. "Nothing gets me like a $4 dress. I mean it's amazing." Wow and I thought I was a frugal fashionista!Continue Reading >
