MillyBridal & Prom UK

Prom and Wedding season is here!  And there's only one site that has the best selection and prices of formal and semi-formal dresses.  It's MillyBridal UK.  Styles of prom dresses havn't changed a lot over the past twenty years, but there are a few trends that have become more popular recently.  For example, long sleeves.  Traditionally speaking, prom dresses usually show bare shoulders and have more coverage on the skirt of the dress.  Although this silhouette is lovely for the young lady with sculpted arms and prominent collar bones, it's a nightmare for a triangle body-type.

With the option of long sleeve prom dresses becoming more popular, UK Milly has a huge selection of dresses for every silhouette.  Love your back, but not your shoulders?  A long sleeve, backless prom dress is perfect for you.  Have a small waist and large hips?  Try a ball gown which emphasizes your hourglass figure.  Not sure which silhouette is most flattering for your body type?  UK Milly has a guide that helps with necklines, silhouettes and train length on their site.  
Choosing a perfect dress for wedding and events could be a terrifying process.
There are so many dress options out there, it can be too overwhelming to choose a suitable one. How could you make sure which dress will make you look and feel the most beautiful? And which dress is supposed to be your dreamed one? Together with the talented dress designers, best of the Bridal industry, we’ve created a handy shopping guide on how to choose your dress. Refer to our guidelines whenever you may need it. We’ve also concluded some super helpful ideas that show exactly what dress shapes, necklines and trains are available to you! Hopefully it will add a little fun to your dress hunting experience! Happy shopping everyone…

Another popular trend are two-piece dresses.  These dresses are popular among prom goers with a slim waist.  As a general rule, don't show too much skin in your two piece prom dress.  If your waist is showing, be conservative with your skirt length and skin baring top.  The pink two-piece prom dress pictured above is a perfect example of balance.  More coverage on the top and bottom lends a perfect opportunity to draw your eye to her waist, which is exactly the goal.

Another tasteful way to show some skin, are with backless prom dresses.  The dress pictured above has an elegant balance of peak-a-boo cut outs at the waist and complete exposure of the back.  I love how the model accessorized her backless dress with a necklace down the back to draw your eye even more.  Concerned about undergarments?  The perfect solution to a backless dress is a backless bra.  I own one and wear it all the time.  I find it even more comfortable than a strapless and it holds tight all night long.  

Whether it's your shoulders, back or waist you want to make the start of the show, UK Milly has the biggest selection of affordable prom dresses around.  With options in any silhouette, color, length and style, find your perfect dress to make a statement at prom this year.

Oh leggings.  How I love thee.  You are a cross between pants and tights and should be treated so.  With your forgiving waistband, stretchy material and unlimited colors and prints, you hug my bottom-half in all the right places.  Although, leggings... you have been used and abused by far too many.  You are debate-ably one of the longest lasting and most popular trends I've seen in my lifetime.  With all that fashion power, I wonder why we just can't seem to get you right.

Generally speaking, leggings are a thick, footless version of tights.  Would you walk out the door in tights and a top that shows your crotch and butt?  Sweet Lord, I hope not.  So, please, stop doing it with leggings.  Of course, there are a few exceptions to the rule.  Working out?  Lycra leggings (designed for supportive exercise, with zero sheerness) are fine for the gym or running.  Under 21?  Go ahead.  Take advantage of that adorable perky young butt.  Jeggings?  Absolutely.  As long as there's pockets, belt loops and a zipper or button closure, you're good.  Don't care about rules?  Okay.

So, realizing you've been breaking legging rules?  Welcome to the club.  I would say almost 50% of women I see in leggings these days, aren't wearing them right.  To each their own.  I wear leggings just as much as I wear any other kind of pants, but I always try to follow the "Leggings Golden Rule: Always cover your crotch and butt with a dress, tunic or layering piece when wearing leggings".  The "camel toe" trend did NOT make it and if your bottom is wider than your hip bones (which is a yes for most women), showing that part of your body off in a tight, thin material isn't doing you any justice.

With all that said, fashion rules are meant for breaking and if you feel great, you will probably look great too.  A few pro tips to finding the right legging for your body: (1) The waistband is everything.  To avoid pulling your leggings up constantly, find a pair with a thick, wide waistband.  (2)  Sizing.  Your leggings should not pinch, bunch or strain at the seams.  The fit should compliment your bottom half.  I struggle finding leggings that are long enough.  A great solution to a pair that might fall too short or too long is to fold them up a couple times at the hem.  A very fashion forward move.  (3) Balance.  I emphasize balance on my Blog a lot.  The general rule is, if you are wearing leggings (which fit snug), balance them with a more flowy tunic or cardigan.  (4) Print.  I love print.  Sometimes too much.  Unless you're a fashion pro, stick to one piece with print.  Pair your floral print leggings with sandals and a solid swingy dress and you've got a look that can go from day to night.

My look above breaks all the legging rules... but I don't care!  My off-shoulder pink top (Forever21) perfectly complimented the high-waisted olive green leggings (Forever21) and peep-toe sandals (Steve Madden).  It was the perfect look for an outdoor concert, which screams for trendy comfort.

Mother's Day

I've had some crappy jobs in my lifetime.  Who knew plunging toilets came with the waitress job description?  But, you do what you have to when you gotta make money.  I figured, as long as there was a paycheck involved, I could clean just about anything.  Then, my son was born.  Everything disgusting that the human body does, his tiny little body did.  And I cleaned every bit of it.  No paycheck involved.  Because when you're a mom, it doesn't matter.  You love that tiny little being so much, you'll do anything.  It's called unconditional love, and it comes automatically, when you become a Mom.

I think it's a bit ridiculous that we celebrate moms only one day a year.  Moms give 100% of themselves 364 days a year, without any praise, and people think one day of recognition is sufficient?  Get out of here!  Moms should be celebrated everyday.  For getting up at the crack of dawn, because the kids are up.  For making breakfast, lunch, dinner AND doing the dishes.  For spending their entire Saturday watching Little League and their entire Sunday working on his science project.  For staying up late to bake the class apple chips for the school fair tomorrow.  We do it all in the name of love.

Don't just give your mom flowers and a card this year.  She deserves something special and unique, just like her.  Not sure what the perfect gift is?  Give her the gift of Personal Shopping and Wardrobe Organization.  Hire ME (a certified and experienced Fashion Consultant) to help Mom weed out the wardrobe pieces she shouldn't wear and assist her in shopping for new updated clothing and accessories, so she can feel fabulous all year long.  Every time Mom puts on a new top that she got while using her Personal Shopping gift, she'll feel the love that you gave back to her.  I work with any budget and the first hour Consultation is always FREE.

MD Maternity Shapewear

A few weeks ago, I was contacted by a shapewear company to test out a few of their maternity pieces.  I'm not pregnant, but fortunately, I have a couple girlfriends who are.  They were thrilled at the opportunity to try on samples of quality shapewear, for their growing bodies.  When they're pregnant, some moms only grow in their bellies.  Other moms, like me, grow everywhere!  All the way from my neck to my ankles.  Luckily, maternity wear has taken leaps and bounds in support, function and fashion.  

My pregnant friend, Teresa, is expecting her second baby girl in August and was put on bed rest for most of her pregnancy.  Teresa and baby are doing well, her body is changing even more than her last pregnancy.  She's just starting to show in her belly, but her breasts began to grow very early on in her pregnancy.  She needed support and comfort and chose two MD Maternity Shapewear pieces.  The first piece:
 MD's Nursing Bras Push Up Cute Best Comfortable Breastfeeding Sports Bra, fit great.  The straps were soft, adjustable.  The material of the bra was stretchy, supportive and a high quality.

Teresa also tried on: 
MD Maternity Underwear Activewear Pregnancy Shirts Belly Support Band Long Sleeve Undershirt Again, the shapewear was stretchy, supportive and a high quality.  Teresa felt as though the long sleeve undershirt was a bit tight in all areas and said she would order a size up next time in this style top.  Hopefully, my dear pregnant friend will soon be able to venture out (a.k.a. be taken off bed rest) in her comfortable and supportive new shapewear from MD.  A big thank you to MD Shapewear for the great samples and to Teresa for being such a sport during her pregnancy.

My Spring Wishlist

My Spring wishlist is super long, but to save us all time, I'll narrow it down to the must-haves:

Off-Shoulder Top
We saw off the shoulder tops emerge last summer.  I was a bit weary to jump on the trend, because it's exclusively a Spring/Summer look, but seeing that it's here to stay, I MUST have one.  A couple tips to styling an off-shoulder top, (1) Pair a more loose fitting off-shoulder top with slim-fitting bottoms, and (2) Invest in a comfortable and supportive strapless bra, so you can wear this look all season long.

Fruit Inspired Accessories
Anyone who knows me, knows why I selected a cherry printed bag.  I've had a thing for cherries since High School.  I even have cherries tattooed to my hip.  Hard-core cherry fan.  Luckily, cherries, pineapple, watermelon, whatever fruit you like is all the rage for Spring.  You'll see me with cherry earrings, shoes, bags, clothes...  One tip to styling fruit inspired pieces is to stick to one fruit at a time.  Fruit salad isn't in, just yet. 

Raw Hem Denim
Whether it's a denim skirt, shorts or pants, a raw hem is everything this Spring.  Don't invest a lot into this trend.  It's likely to be short-lived, but an absolute must-have for the season.  You can always make your own raw hem by cutting the sewn hem off your favorite denim or even removing the stitches and letting the hem hang down raw.  Just wash your raw hem denim a few times and voila.

Mules are another trend that I had to give a moment to make sure they were going to stick around.  I wasn't sure I loved the trend until I saw peep-toe high-heel mules.  Now that's sexy.  The best part of wearing mules is that they're easy to slide on and off, but an added bonus is that they go with everything.  Cropped denim?  Yes.  Sexy cocktail dress?  Heck yes.  Yoga pants?  No.  Sorry, mules go with everything but yoga pants.  

Drop Waist Dress
The world's most figure flattering dress, the drop waist.  Get one.  Love it.  Get more.  Done.

Chokers took the 90's by storm and they're back.  Like, all they way back.  I have an insanely long neck, so a choker always looks right, but if you don't resemble a giraffe like me, be sure to wear your choker only with tops that show enough skin to not interfere or overlap your necklace.  Also, wearing your choker too tight will literally choke you.  Don't do it.  Wearing it too loose, the choker will turn around all day.  Find a choker that fits your neck just right.

All the pieces featured above are from Shein.  Click on the image to see their amazing prices and selection.

90's Fashion is Back

Ten years ago, if you asked me if 90's fashion would ever come back I would have said, "there's no way".  No way "Mom jeans" and acid wash, chokers and baby tees or lug sole shoes and satin dresses are EVER going to re-emerge in the fashion world.  Obviously, I don't know shit.  Because all of it is back.  Not just back, but like, exactly how I wore it as a young girl.  I should have known when my mom always told me, "I can't believe that is back in style.  I used to have those exact same jeans", that every decade is going to make a comeback at some point.

A couple of my favorite looks from the 90's were school-girl skirts with over-the-knee socks, AND layering a dress or tank over a baby tee.  Think Clueless, and you've nailed it.  Normally, this is where I'd suggest making alterations to the original 90's fashion to make it more current, but not much has changed.  For those of you who were not fortunate enough to experience this fashion trend the first time, I'll give you a quick run-down of do's and don'ts that will keep your look fun and age appropriate.

Do layer a satin or velour dress over a baby tee or under a jacket.  Despite the midriff baring trend, showing too much skin is a definite don't.  Just like in current fashion, the 90's were all about a balance of tight and loose fitting clothing, along with contrasting silhouettes.  Balance a mid-length dress with a bootie, or close the leg gap on a short hem with over-the-knee socks.  A chunky lug sole shoe is easy to walk in and brings the height of your heel even higher.  With snow still being on the ground here in Maine, having a waterproof shoe that grips is a function and fashion DO.

There are several advantages to layering a baby tee or turtleneck under a top/dress with spaghetti straps.  First of all, it's super cute, but also showing bra straps is a big don't.  I find a bra with straps to be much more comfortable and supportive compared to a strapless.  Not having to worry about your bra straps peaking out or constantly adjusting your strapless bra, because you're covered, is awesome.  The layered baby tee is definitely a 90's trend that I hope sticks around.  Be sure to balance your baby tee with a less fitted layering piece.  Luckily the tight on tight trend has not reemerged.  

A choker and some dark matte lipstick and you're ready to bring the 90's back to 2017.  Keep your look grown-up with appropriately fitted layering pieces and keep your colors rich.  Florescent is for the kids.  Although it's officially Spring, lug soles and layering pieces are still necessary.  There's such a feeling of nostalgia when you bring a trend back to your current look.  I'm loving it all.  Bring it on, 90's!

Gold Satin Midi Dress: H&M (old)
Lug Sole Booties: Steve Madden
Baby Tee: H&M (old)
Blue Satin Slip Dress: H&M
Black Choker: Forever21

I Made a Dress!

Pretty dope, right?  I'm not going fool anyone and say it was easy.  It took several hours and a few "fresh air" breaks, but in the end, I'm pretty happy.  There's something to be said for having a vision and it coming to fruition.  See, I bought a dress on vacation last year, from a store I can't remember.  It was the day before we left to go home, so I just threw it in my suitcase and then dumped it into my "Dresses" bin.  I pulled the dress out of the bin and packed it on a trip to Florida last month.  Turns out... It's my favorite dress of all time.  The frustrating part is, I couldn't remember where I had gotten it and the Internet was no help in finding a similar style.  

The only solution I could think of was to pull out Old Trudy (my sewing machine that's older than probably half the people reading this), and re-create the dress.  Ambitions?  Maybe a little.  I'd call it more like a moment of desperation.  This desperate feeling is one that I've experienced my entire life.  Being an extremely tall and skinny child, I pined after styles that didn't fit my body.  Like pants that covered my ankles or long sleeve shirts that covered my wrists.  A luxury that only average-sized children were able to achieve.  

My mom, a Fashionista herself, found a solution that changed my life forever.  Like her mother, my mom taught me how to sew.  She took me to KMart, bought me one top that I loved, but was too short and one pair of pants that fit me perfectly in the waist and thighs, but came up to my mid-shin.  She then taught me to rip all the stitches holding the garments together, create a pattern using the all the pieces, and then added length to all the ends.  We then went to the fabric store and chose material, similar to the original and colors that only my wildest dreams could come up with and re-created pants and tops galore.

Pretty awesome, right?  The skill of sewing has opened a world of endless possibilities, and although I'm not great at it and never had any formal training, I can make a dress.  I can actually make a million dresses!  I now have a pattern I created from my favorite dress and can re-create a style that is extremely flattering to my body with material and prints that make you say, "wow".  

You too can make a dress.  Watch You Tube tutorials.  Take a sewing class.  Visit a fabric store for inspiration.  You can purchase step-by-step patterns that can be sewn by hand or machine.  The possibilities are endless and the styles can be as wild as your imagination.  My only advice is, take your time and you ARE going to make mistakes.  Purchase extra material, so you can make one dress (that you'll probably mess up on) and then one dress that you learned your mistakes on.

I got the material to make my homemade dress from JoAnn Fabrics.
My faux leather jacket is from Target.
My over-the-knee boots are Aldo.

How to Rock Faux Fur This Winter

What to do when you’re a passionate fighter for animal rights but have a fashionable soul that finds fur really appealing? Well, rock faux fur, of course. It looks great, it keeps you warm during colder winter months and there’s no animal cruelty involved. Still, if you’re new to this trend, you might benefit from some tips and trick on how to enjoy faux fur garments and accessories confidently. In that respect, following points can prove to be very helpful for upgrading your own fashion style.

Furry hats
Balance is still the biggest factor in determining whether your faux fur hat will look great or out of place. Combining fur hats with fur coats may be the hardest thing to pull off when putting an outfit together. Still, if you stick to the simple hat lines and neutral colors that don’t clash with your coat, you’re good to go. On the other hand, a fabulous faux fur hat can spice up any plain outfit, especially if it’s the only fur detail in your attire. Then again, if you’re wearing all black and elegant outfit, matching the fur hat to your gloves during winter can make a big difference.

Fluffy Coats
If you follow the world’s famous fashion bloggers, observe street fashion and keep track of latest runway projects, you definitely noticed the burst in faux fur popularity. In general, fur coats have become a fashion statement. You can find amazing pieces in different cuts, colors and patterns. Still, if you want to jazz up your winter wear with a gaudy faux fur coat, make sure to keep the rest of your outfit simple, with just few decorative bits. In this case, there’s a fine line between looking as a runway model and a masquerade champ. “Less is more” approach will help you achieve the first one.

Warm Shoes
Fluffy faux fur boots are making a comeback in contemporary fashion. They look best when combined with skinny jeans, but wearing these with shorts or skater skirts and tights has also become characteristic of street fashion. Baggy or loose pants and mid-length or really long skirts and dresses do not match well with this type of footwear. What’s more, these boots will keep you warm but they won't be the best choice when it rains or snows outside. If you’re interested in furry details, you’ll be glad to know that there are many elegant stilettos and sandals with delicate faux fur decorative bits available. These can be freely paired with various outfits.

Cuddly Bags
Rocking a faux fur bag has become a really popular trend recently, especially when it comes to adding a unique twist to your fabulous ladies clothing. Depending on your usual outfit combinations, you should strive to find a bag that matches and upgrades your overall style. Still, bags are generally the first to get dirty or shabby, so make sure to take regular and proper care of your furry bag as well. Otherwise, it won’t look flattering and fashionable at all.

Foxy Details
If you don’t want to feature faux fur too much in your outfit but still want the texture it provides, you can always opt for jackets and coats that have faux fur trim or lining. In this case, colorblocking with bright faux fur has taken the fashion world by storm.

In the end, it’s all about what makes you feel comfortable and confident. If you really want to get on the faux fur band wagon, but have no prior experience, start with baby steps. Introducing furry accessories and details gradually will effectively help you discover your own take on faux fur fashion.

Amy's Undies

This is the first time I've discussed undergarments on my Blog.  Which is pretty crazy, because your undergarments are so instrumental in your total look.  Undergarment no-no's can change, just as quickly as fashion does, but one of the biggest (which still makes me cringe when I see it) are panty lines.  I mean, I get it.  Thongs are not as comfortable as regular panties.  I struggle daily with wanting more comfort and coverage, but knowing panty line exposure is unacceptable.  There are a few clothing items that USUALLY require a thong: (1) Yoga pants, (2) Leggings and (3) Skinny jeans.  I call them non-thong-negotiables.

Well, it might just be time to start negotiating.  I emphasize "USUALLY" because there's a new kind of underwear out there that's changing all the rules.  They're called Amy's Undies and this revolutionary underwear is saying NO to "one size fits all".  We were all born with different body types and that includes the width of your thigh, waist and especially the size of your booty.  Amy's Undies are designed to fit any type of women's body.  Measuring around the high hip and the low hip, you find your personal difference.  Standard underwear have all the same "difference" for women.  Amy's Undies give you a custom difference in their sizing, allowing your underwear to fit right and never need to be adjusted.

With a stretchy lace waistband and soft, breathable material, Amy's Undies defy all panty line rules.  Watch this quick tutorial on how to find your measurements, which determines your difference HERE and check out all the different sizes and styles of Amy's Undies HERE.

"With Amy's Curve Sizing , we have expanded the sizing system by an additional 15 sizes to fit those of us that have been gifted with more in the backside than what manufacturers consider a woman has.
Traditional sizing allows for XS, S, M, L, XL etc. We have expanded on this to add the Curve that increases the sizes available by more than 300%.
If you suffer from eternal wedgies due to having your plumper backside being pushed into "normal butt" panties, be relieved, our patent pending sizing system ensures that is a thing of the past."  -Amy

Amy's Undies come in three styles: Cheeky, Boy Shorts and Bikini.  My personal favorite are the Cheeky, but if you're looking for a little more booty coverage, the Bikini is a great option.  I sent Amy my high and low waist measurements, and my underwear fit perfectly.  The Boyshorts eliminate the panty line problem, while still offering comfort and coverage.  I personally find Amy's Undies to be the "next thing" in underwear and love that they embrace that women are not "one size fits all".
