All That Glitters… - Dec 9, 2011 - 9:44:17 AM

Thanksgiving is done and like a true holiday fanatic I’m ready to herald in the season with some festive frocks. A few years ago I would have scoffed at the idea of wearing sequins, but the beauty of fashion is that as you evolve, so does your style. Apparently I’ve evolved into Sasha Fierce – addicted to all things glam.

If you’re looking for a way to add a little sparkle to your holiday wardrobe, sequins is a surefire way to do so - literally. For the daring, I’ve fallen in love with this ¾ sleeve backless number by ArynK  – perfect for a no fuss yet attention getting way to ring in the New Year. For more formal events, slipping a sequin trench over a simple LBD (little black dress) is uber chic...

White Is In! - Dec 6, 2011 - 11:53:08 AM

Driving down the Cable Beach strip the other morning I spotted a chic lady dressed in crisp winter white. The monochromatic white ensemble was eye catching and both myself and my passenger spotted her at the same time. The passenger in the car gasped, “isn’t white passe after Labor Day?”

I’ve always maintained that for the most part you can make up your own fashion rules, if you love it and feel confident in it then rock it! Needless to say there are some outfits that should never ever see the light of day, but a chic winter white look is surely not one of them. The fashion rule governing no white between Labor Day and Memorial Day...

Shape Stylist: How to Dress the Rectangle Shaped Figure - Oct 21, 2011 - 6:45:35 PM

You can’t change the body type you have been given, but you sure can dress it in a way that complements your attributes and minimizes your flaws. The truth is, no matter how stylish, expensive or beautiful your outfit, if it doesn’t complement your body type then it won’t work for you. Many of us get caught up in our size, however in fashion it is important to shop primarily for your shape, not your size. Your body shape is determined by bone structure and genetics and no matter how your weight fluctuates, for the most part your body shape will remain the same. Whether you’re a size 2 or 22, knowing your body shape will help you choose the best pieces for your figure instead of choosing pieces that are cut for your size but not flattering for your shape.

There are 7 common figure categories and most bodies fit clearly into one. Classifying them by geometric shapes makes the figures simple to identify...

Top 4 Shoe Trends for Fall - Sep 23, 2011 - 10:19:52 AM

I have always maintained that I do not believe in love at first sight. That was until I saw these drool-worthy Aldo Eppihimer mustard wedges with tassels. One of my favorite colors, in one of my favorite shoe styles made even more special with a slight oxford influence and grown-up tassels.

Tassels were a huge trend last fall and we’re seeing it pop up again in accessories and shoes for the season. Wedges, the ever so comfortable style that provides just as much height and style as their distant cousin the stiletto are also huge this fall season.

Shoe trends for this fall are bold and rich. Exotic skins, patent leather and chunky...

Once a year, fashion enthusiasts in many metropolitan cities worldwide are treated to the ultimate night out filled with late night shopping parties, celebrities, makeovers and complimentary gifts galore.

This year’s Fashion’s Night Out, held on Thursday September 8 coincided with my birthday. I took it as a sign from the fashion gods that perhaps it was time to add a few new pieces to my wardrobe arsenal. Then came the dilemma, where to shop locally?

Since this year didn’t find me in New York City trolling the streets of Madison Avenue hob-nobbing with the likes of Andre Leon Talley and Rachel Zoe and drooling...

Time to Swap Your Flip Flops - Aug 12, 2011 - 5:00:49 PM

I have a confession. This fashion addict has been working like a mad woman lately and I have thus traded in my heels for flats. It gets worse. My shoe preference of the moment - a pair of worn in $5 flip flops from Old Navy. I am staging my own intervention.

If you find yourself running around more than usual this summer and regrettably reaching for a pair of flip flops that do nothing for your look far too often, consider this your fashion prescription for better shoe health...

Mix It Up: How to Combine Vintage and Modern Pieces - Aug 5, 2011 - 12:13:44 PM

Longing to embrace the retro trend but weary of looking like you just stepped out of a time capsule? Achieving a stellar look by mixing vintage or vintage inspired pieces with modern basics can be easier than you think!

Whether you have an affinity for the funky, casual style of the 80’s or the prim and proper femininity of the 60’s, playing with prints, silhouettes and accessories can help you pull off a unique look that suits your modern style with a subtle nod to decades past.

Retro floral dresses typically feature a large floral pattern in bold or pastel colors. Flapper style dresses are reminiscent of the 20’s and 30’s while halter styles...

Sheer Hosiery a Hot New Trend? - Jul 29, 2011 - 12:34:37 PM

She’s officially been the The Duchess of Cambridge for less than four months and she’s already making fashion waves the world over. Kate Middleton and her sister Pippa have been busy making the rounds, and rarely make an appearance without finishing their look with a pair of sheer nude pantyhose with a slight sheen.

With celebrities including Sarah Jessica Parker, Mischa Barton and Hayden Panattiere riding the nude hose wave along with the royals, it’s only a matter of time until this trend officially crosses the pond and trickles down...

Safe Sunning: A Fashionista’s Beach Survival Kit - Jul 15, 2011 - 12:06:24 PM

The summer has arrived, and with it the need for the ultimate sun protection Beach Survival Kit!

I am an extra shade of chocolate after spending three glorious days beach combing and cay hopping in Abaco. Though I look forward to my darker summer shade every year -  a testament to all the fun in the sun that has been had, I do worry about how healthy all that sun exposure is for my skin. Any change in skin colour indicates sun damage from sun exposure. Yes, many of us enjoy getting a nice summer tan but the costs to our skin are great.

This weekend I’ll be trotting over to one of my favorite Bahamian islands, Eleuthera...

Say Yes to Your Bridesmaids' Dress - Jun 9, 2011 - 11:50:29 PM

Scooting out on Saturday afternoons always involves passing the Cable Beach Strip and at least several wedding parties vying for a beautiful backdrop to their summer wedding.

I always slow down to take a quick look at what the bridal party is wearing. For many brides outfitting their bridal party can be more stressful than saying yes to their own wedding dress.

Balancing pleasing your bridal party and choosing styles that are flattering to them while  staying true to your vision for your special day can become overwhelming for even the most zen bride. Here are some hot trends in bridesmaids dresses...

Dressing for your Figure: Apple Shape - May 25, 2011 - 11:24:12 AM

Here is the dilemma. Many women feel intimidated and even fearful of shopping because they are unhappy with their bodies and don’t have a clear understanding of their specific body types. To augment the issue, many are unaware of how to choose styles that effectively diminish their problem areas for an overall flattering look. Clothes are our friends. Knowing your body type and how to effectively dress it takes the guesswork and stress out of shopping.

Dressing for your shape is the ultimate fashion rule, followed by ensuring that your clothes are tailored to your body and fit well. We spoke several weeks ago on dressing the inverted triangle body shape and ways to play up that shape’s best assets while visually hiding the problem areas...
