I just got back from my annual beach getaway with my mom, sister and daughter. I love going to the beach--the surf, the sand, the sun and the great food and shopping! A key to a fun and relaxing beach getaway is packing appropriately for the event. Who wants to stress about what to wear when you are supposed to be relaxing?
After all my years as a beach fan, these are my must-pack items for a great beach getaway wardrobe:
Whether you want to ward off a chilly seaside breeze, shield yourself from the sun, take your bikini from shore to café, or cover up your curves between dips in the pool, a great swimsuit cover-up is a must for any stylish woman. Now is the time to purchase swim cover-ups on sale as, though the swim season has just started, retailers are trying to clear out their summer inventory to make room for fall fashions.
Here are a few styles I have seen lately that are fashionable yet budget-friendly:
It's just two weeks until Halloween, meaning now's the perfect
time to stock up on candy, decorations--and gadgets!
Wait, gadgets? For Halloween? Yep, even this holiday can
benefit from some techno-wizardry, especially if you're looking to
create the ultimate costume. Here are three seriously cool gizmos
to liven up your All Hallow's Eve.
Finally, a way to integrate your smartphone into a Halloween
costume! Just choose one of the cool custom Digitaldudz shirts,
tape your phone inside so only the screen is showing, then run the
free Digital Dudz app (available for Android and iOS).
The effects range from a darting eyeball to a beating heart to
a flickering pumpkin.
I have often written on my blog about wardrobe staples and I feel that every woman should have a simple black dress in her wardrobe. Owning such a dress means you're ready for a wedding, a funeral, a date or a cocktail party.
However, sometimes it's nice to go beyond basic black. And one of those times is the holidays. Right around the corner is the season for eggnog, mistletoe and wining and dining with friends. While you could use a simple LBD to ring the season in with style, choosing color can add a festive touch to your ensemble while also making you stand out in a crowd.
Take a cue from Michelle Obama, who at the South Korea state dinner stood out in a sea of black in her ultraviolet one-shouldered gown from designer Doo-Ri Chung. Her choice of a must-notice color allowed her not to have to rely on sparkly jewelry, a fancy updo or unique makeup. The dress was elegant yet relatively simple, letting the color steal the show.
The Emmy Awards, hosted by Jane Lynch of Glee, will be watched by millions this Sunday, September 18th. While many will be taking bets on who goes home with the coveted statues, many of us will be tuning in to gawk at the red carpet fashion.
What will the stars be wearing for the 63rd primetime Emmys? With the help of celebrity stylist and fashion blogger Robin Saperstein of High Heels in a Haystack, we're forecasting some style predictions...
I love wearing white in summer--it gives such a crisp look, and it complements every color in your wardrobe. White is also a great color to wear in the sun--it reflects the light keeping you cooler than if you wore the same item in a darker hue. While white is a perfect summer color to wear, it takes some care to ensure it looks great on you.
