Back With a Vengence!

Uh-oh.  Guys.  I hate to say it.  I really hate to say it.  But destroyed denim is back!  I've been seeing pop up everywhere, both men's and women's fashion.  On the television.  In the magazines.  It's back.  

Okay, so maybe it's not THAT bad, but I know I don't have any of my old pairs laying around anymore.  What's a girl to do?! DIY.  That's what.  Check out this video below:

Will you ladies be distressing your jeans this summer?  Do you still have some old pairs laying around? Or do you feel this trend should stay back in 2007? Let me know in the comments!

Summer *Dress* Up

A Long Dress
The maxi dress trend is a prime example of a popular look that’s still going from last summer. These dresses were hot in 13’ and they’re hot again for 14’. If you don’t own one yet, what’s stopping you?

Long dresses are the perfect thing for warm weather because they’re comfortable, flattering, and oh-so-summery. And if short-shorts are not your thing, long dresses are the perfect way to stay on-trend without revealing more than you feel comfortable with. Perfect for the beach, a casual day of shopping, or even date night.

A Short Dress
Long dresses aren’t the only summer essential – short dresses, as always, are in as well. After all, summer just wouldn’t be summer without the summer sundress.
This year, dress styles are more figure-flattering than ever. Fashion has moved away from the billowy baby-doll dress (you know, the ones that made even the models look pregnant), and towards a cinched-in hourglass shape. These new styles of dresses work on almost every body type, creating curves where there are none and showing off natural curves. There are also so many styles to choose from this season – from strapless and floral to simple and color-blocked. The choice is yours this summer.

One-Shoulder Tops & Dresses
Asymmetrical tops and dresses are everywhere and there are so many cute and affordable options in stores right now!

One-shoulder tops work great for nights out if you keep the color dark and go easy on the bling. Too many accessories and you could look a little more “ready for the club” than fashionable & fabulous. One-shoulder dresses are also super chic right now, and there are tons of cute options in stores. I’m especially loving the cutout one from TopShop below – so sexy yet fashion-forward at the same time.

Everything High!

Guys!  I've been super busy at work lately so I'm really sorry for my absence.  All of these summer tourists have been requiring me to log a bunch of extra hours between my two gigs...but, hey - at least I can pay rent next month! LOL

 For this post I want to discuss fashion, and a very particular trend at that.  A trend that is hard to miss this season.....High Waisted Clothing. They were the big thing in the 40’s and now they are back! Whether they are pants, skirts, shorts, or bathing suits - high waisted clothing has become an essential for everyone's closet. High waisted clothing gives off a nice silhouette and is very flattering on most body types.

It is not hard to find high waisted clothing at most retail stores. Check out American Apparel for a large variety of high waisted pants, skirts and shorts in an even greater amount of colors. Match up any high waisted pants, skirts or shorts with a simple or extravagant shirt. The high waisted look is a nice and classy look and it is hard to make it look bad.

What are your thoughts on high waisted clothing? I personally love it!
