Spice up winter!

Spice up winter!

Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean our clothes have to reflect the drab colour scheme of slushy days. Instead why not embrace the cold and bundle up in cute cozy knits, and fun detail? Let’s spice up this weather with adorable outfits that will make you look and feel fabulous!

A great place to start is Lookbook Store. I absolutely love this website!! There are way too many awesome pieces to list, but here are some great picks:

V-Cutout Bow Back Shirt: Under $24! What a steal!

Why I love it? Because it’s versatile! So unexpectedly sexy, and yet throw on a blazer and you’re good for the office too.

For the office: Try it with a bold statement necklace, since the statement back detail is no longer visible beneath your blazer.

For a night out: Try it with a high waisted skirt and sexy pumps. Pearl earnings would be adorbs! Read more

Skirts that don’t work for girls with hips! True story.

Skirts that don’t work for girls with hips! True story.

First of all, let me tell you that I know first hand what it’s like being short and having hips…I’m 5″2. Oh yes.

While there are many advantages to being short and having a feminine figure, there are a few drawbacks. Which really aren’t drawbacks but just a few styles to avoid as not to take away from our adorableness.

Here are a few skirt styles which I find completely unflattering:

Pleated skirts: As if we needed more bulkiness on our hips! This is cute on skinny girls with more athletic or boyish figures as it adds curves and femininity. On me however it’s unnecessary volume at the worst place!

A-line Skirt (Especially if you’re short): Good in theory not so much in practice. It could work if you have the height to pull it off, otherwise once again this will add volume in unwanted places. Unless of course you’re Carrie Bradshaw… then anything goes. But then you run into your ex-lover and bad shit happens…so… suit yourself.

High waisted pleated skirts: This is probably the worst if you’re bottom heavy. you’re cinching at you’re narrowest part, which is always cute, but then you’re sending the skirt outwards in all 360 degrees to accentuate your bottom. Why? If however, you have big hips but skinny legs, this look could be cute. I do find that it’s a younger look and becomes harder to pull off as you get older anyway.

Most importantly ladies, remember that this is based on ME and what I found works and doesn’t. If there’s a style you love and it makes you happy, screw everyone else! Go for it and flaunt it!
