Roses Are Red… Violets are Blue… V-day Inspiration!

Bring on the cupcakes and chocolate kisses…. What’s Valentine’s Day without flowers, cards and box of Sweethearts from a sweetheart! I love, love… So being able to celebrate this time of year with people I love and look fabulous in the process is my kind of holiday!!  BOOP!!

IMG_8061 copy copia

It’s no better time of year, for ladies to be their most girly, fun, flirty selves! Whether you’re in a relationship or not, take this Valentine’s Day to look your most soft and feminine!

Wear that cliché pink or red dress! Why not?? I mean who loves you more than you? And besides, you’ll finally have a reason to look hot!!

Beauty Tips: PINK or RED Lips this V-day; If you’re not a lipstick girl, start off with a soft pink lipstick you’ll feel comfortable with…. But please, attempt to try it! You can’t be afraid of a little color! My suggestion for lip color this V-day is of course RED RED RED!! My go to red lip color right now is RiRi Woo, from the MAC Rihanna Collection. I also love MAC Red by MAC. My go to Pink MAC colors are Impassioned, Girl About Town, and Pleasure Bomb from the Rihanna Collection. I also am a sucker for Maybelline’s Red’s and Pink’s… And they typically have great deals on the Maybelline colors at your local drug stores!!

Another thing ladies; curls are so flirty… Men LOVE curls… Make sure you make an appointment with your hair stylist for your fresh V-day do! If you can’t afford the salon, no worries… FLEXY RODS are my saving grace right now!! I achieved my curls in the photo above by flexy rodding my hair the night before! Just make sure you brush them out to get this look!

Now back to the fun stuff…… THE LOOKS!!

If you have a date, pick silhouettes that hug your frame in all the right places! Men love solid colors like red, purple, black, pink, and blue! (Just a secret I’ve learned from all my male friends!)

And, if you don’t have a date, get dolled up in your favorite flirty dress and have dinner or drinks with the girls.  My girlfriends are my loves! If more people spent time loving those around them, they wouldn’t be concerned about who or what they don’t have! But that’s another blog! LOL

Valentine’s Day is about love… Self Love being most important in my book!!

My look of choice this year, FLORAL!!!! I love floral prints, and with them being on trend last spring and this upcoming spring, what better way to get dolled up during the most romantic time of year?!?! I love a great baby doll dress, and Topshop didn’t disappoint me with this adorable number. I’m a petite girl, so a lot of times I need dresses that synch my waist, to show I have a shape. Baby doll dresses are great for petite ladies who like to show off, without doing too much! 😉 I love flowers, so a great floral print dress is just the icing on the well dressed cake!!

Pear Shaped Ladies: My suggestion is a fitted skirt with a flowy top, or a bandage dress.

Model Frames (Tall and Slim): My suggestion is a bandage dress , a baby doll dress, or fitted lace top with a wide-legged pant.

Full Figured Beauties: My Suggestion is a skater skirt and fitted top, a high wasted pencil skirt with a fitted top, or a wrap dress.

So bring on the floral print and the form-fitting dresses! Be your sexy fabulous self this Valentine’s Day, who knows…. If you don’t have a boo, you may get one that night!!! OOOOOOHHHH!!!

Lights, Camera, Action…!!!

cutecropI just love a good photo shoot!! And this one was no exception!! I wanted to share a few of my favorite shots with you!

The look is Business Chic… Black and White doesn’t have to be boring!

A great statement necklace is always great to offset any classic, professional look! I cannot function without a statement necklace! Don’t be afraid of a little bling either! The more bling, the better!!

Every now and then, it’s ok to let your shoes do the talking! In this case I let them speak loud and clear!! I love these pink beauties! I call them my “Woodstock” pumps! And ladies make sure you have a great shoe repairman in your rolodex! You have to keep your favorite pumps in tact!!

Having a great set of key pieces in your professional wardrobe can go a long way! A pencil skirt can be a woman’s best friend.  And a crisp white bag or clutch can make any business look more interesting! And of course a trendy, yet classic blazer can pull together any sassy workplace look!

Who said professional dress can’t be fly? I beg to differ!!
