In case you didn’t notice by watching the Oscars, if you did, nudes are really in right now. And for good reason. In case you didn’t watch, or happen to see the Oscars gowns in various publications, online, and on television; in other words you have been living under a rock, here are some of the nude gowns.

So, the above are just a couple of my favorite gowns of the night, and just to give you a sense of what I mean by the nude trend. Do you love them? Hate them? Leave me comments below and let me know what the nude trend means to you. Will you be wearing nude?
In the spirit of the Oscars, I’ve selected some awesome nude pieces for a regular person’s wardrobe, for you and me. I’m certain that they cost less, and are more easily wearable than the above stunners. In other words, they are everyday pieces that will make the nude trend for for anyone.
Personally, I am loving this dress, and can see wearing it to work. (The dress is on sale right now.)
I’m also loving this gorgeous scarf to round out the winter months and the remainder of the chill weather, in the spring rain, and breeze (we truthfully don’t have much use for it in Southern California, but if you are just about anywhere else in the country, you will most likely have a use for it).
Here’s a watch to round out your look. You might as well got all nude (and it is seriously pretty).
And lastly, this jacket, although not exactly nude, has the general hue, and it’s on sale.
Will you be wearing nude? I’d love to hear about whether you will be buying some nude pieces to round out your wardrobe. I know I will be. If you like any of the above pieces they’re shoppable (they contain affiliate links).

Hello Sex And The City

I love pies! Don’t you? I’ve selected pies for dessert because I always envision sweet pies as my favorite kinds of pies. I enjoy smooth, light, creamy lemony pies. I also love fruity pies. I feel that the Fresh Strawberry Pie would make a perfect finish to a meal, especially in our lovely SoCal weather. The Blueberry Cherry Pie is my choice for a more classic, baked pie– yum! I also love the decadence of chocolate, so my selections of Triple Chocolate Cream Pie, Brownie-Walnut Pie, and French Silk Pie feature chocolate; which is such a perfect finish to any meal.
What is your favorite pie?

If you’re always hunting for the perfect bag but can’t seem to find the right one you’re not alone. It’s hard to find that perfect handbag that fits absolutely everything and doesn’t weigh you down as well. A lot of what you put in your handbag depends on the weight of it, but the type of purse may determine just how heavy it becomes. What’s more, looking for a trendy purse can make your search all the more complicated. You may want a seasonal purse that will fit your essentials and still look glam.
Just like a pair of sturdy and comfy shoes, finding a bag is just as important. The good news is however, that once you find a style you love, such as a weekender bag or backpack, carrying your favorite essentials suddenly is much easier. You just need to teach yourself not to weigh down your bag with too many favorite accessories!
Backpacks are Ideal for Travel
There are so many different styles of backpacks available, and Reef offers a stylish one that’s made with hand woven textiles from Guatemala with creamy Nubuck leather. This backpack is very stylish, but it also is perfect for travel. Backpacks usually allow for plenty of storage space, making it easy to travel in style.
Downsize with a Pocketbook Purse
As mentioned earlier, if weighing down your purse is an issue, instead opt for a clutch or Reef Pocket Book purse, which will limit you to only carrying the essentials. Before you may think this isn’t possible, try thinking about the accessories you actually use. Many times all of the so called essentials that you have in your purse are hardly ever used. Plus with a unique bag like this you’ll love the interior card and bill pockets that will make it super easy to find your credit cards and cash when you’re in a hurry to check out at the store.
Let’s not forget about the beautiful patterns that are available for handbags, from florals to hand woven textiles that show your love for history and different cultures. Matter of fact a Reef Weekender Bag will be just the ticket for not only a fun weekend, but will be a stunning purse has a beautiful and unique pattern that’s sure to gain lots of compliments. Enjoy your spring, but go on adventures with a fabulous new handbag that fits your style preference and is practical too.
If you have a teen in your household who is determined to wear whatever she wants but as her mother you’d like to have some say in her wardrobe, perhaps it’s time to compromise without completing rocking the boat. There are multiple ways for her to find fashion she adores and still have you approve of her choices. Start first by finding great sites such as rue21 where you both can go shopping online without feeling like the clothing is not appropriate. Once you find a site that you both love creating a teen worthy wardrobe will be a lot easier. Plus, she’ll stick to the basic wardrobe staples, making it easier to put her favorite outfits together. Here are three shopping tips so that your teen can put together an outfit with her new sassy wardrobe:
Start with Favorite Graphic Tees
Graphic tees definitely will help her show off her personality because there are so many to choose from! Graphic tees for Gals carried by rue21 really are endless, making it fun for the both of you to look online and pick her out some that she will love. These type of tees also go with everything, making it all the more fun to choose from a variety of leggings, jeans, and other basic items of clothing that will go with the stand out tees.
Add to the Tees with Comfy Jeans
You can never really go wrong with comfy jeans, and there are so many styles to choose from! Switch it up time to time by wearing boyfriend, skinny, and even bell bottom jeans depending on the existing trends. You can even purchase regular jeans and roll up the bottom part of the pant legs to create pedal pusher jeans that are ideal when going on a bike ride near the beach. Have a variety of the basics available such as graphic tees and a few pairs of jeans and you’ll have a variety of outfits to work with.
Don’t be Swayed by a Group on What to Wear
Keep in mind that other teens may be wearing different things, so don’t allow your teen to feel left out or swayed differently if she is wearing different items of clothing other than what’s “in style” at school. It doesn’t matter what age she is, she has the right to be an individual and wear what she would like without compromising who she is. Your favorite graphic tees will look amazing on her and she knows it too. That’s why sites like rue21 make trendy clothing she will love and still allow her to be the individual she is. It’s time to shop and have fun creating a number of new dynamic outfits!

I pick these pieces for a day when you want to dress down but look good.
Nothing like boyfriend jeans to dress you down and yet help you pull your look together.
And for a pop of color, pink is always hot.
Finally, this necklace to meld our colors together.
Items selected for this look are available at Voguec Shop – Get ready to go out and look good in your dress down gear. Loving this look! What do you think?
When the time comes to go out on a date, we always think about what to wear. Valentine’s Day is approaching and that is an occasion that should require a woman to look good, whether you are going on a date for the very first time, or whether it’s with someone you have known for years, you want to look your best. Take a look at some of the beautiful outfits featured here and admit that you can see what the fascination with everything beautiful is. Wouldn’t you like to own a few of the featured articles of clothing and accessories? I know I would! Women love to look good, and I think that when we look good, we feel good.
We love to dress up, and let’s face it, being female there are some expectations of us as far as our appearance. Women’s magazines show women dressed impeccably and they make an impression on men, and women who view them. Even as little girls we wanted to dress up as princesses, a place to get such costumes is MrCostumes.com.
Shoes and purses are all part of a gorgeous outfit, whether the outfit is put together for a date for a special occasion or for any other time. Women love shoes, think of Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City, she had a shoe (and bag) obsession. Speaking of, did you know that Sarah Jessica Parker, the actress who portrayed Carrie Bradshaw, recently released her own shoe collection, very fitting. You can view her shoe collection here when they are released at the end of February.
Women are expected to look well put together, and I think we want to keep up that expectation. From the time when as little girls we want to look like princesses to the time when we grow up and prepare to go on a date with our prince charming.
