Cracking the Body Enigma: The Ravishing Rectangle

Out of all the body types out there, the Ravishing Rectangle posed the biggest challenge for me as a Blogger... and not because it’s tough to define, but because you have so many choices! Ravishing Rectangles are seen all over the runways these days... their tall lean bodies make one of the best choices for showing off the latest fashions! Besides for just about every runway model out there, some other famous RRs include Cameron Diaz, Natalie Portman, Gwen Stefani, Hilary Duff, and Nicole Kidman. You see them on the red carpet in some of the most beautiful pieces, and they always look feminine. This is the biggest challenge for RRs... creating curves!

Fashionista Inspirations: Where Do I Look?

So, after reading my post last week.... maybe you think, “Yes. I need some help in this whole fashion image area. But where the heck do I start??” A lot of women I come across feel that way.

But before you even step foot in a store and spend your hard-earned money, you need to have a plan. An idea. An inspiration!

Why Wait To Look Great?

Ladies, let’s talk about image. Yea, that’s right, the clothes you are wearing right this minute. Do they really speak to who you are? One of my favorite silly eCards read something like this... “Just curious... what part of that outfit made you look in the mirror and say, 'YES. This is how I choose to represent myself today.’?” I feel like saying this every time I walk into a mall. I don’t, of course, in fear of being beat over the head with a bedazzled fanny pack.

Bargains, Bartering, and Borrowing

Recently, I told you gals about my style changes that included a funky short, blonde hairdo and a return to my edgier side. I am finding that just the hair change alone is giving me a spark for life that I haven't felt for a long time. It's amazing to me how much different you can feel when you have the right appearance on the outside.

Finding Style Confidence

For some women (even me) changing their look can be a scary thing. We get comfortable with what we see in the mirror and assume that others feel the same way when they look at us. So, why should we change? For me it’s about being creative and allowing self-expression. Your reason may be something completely different.

Finding Your Style (Inside and Out)

When it comes to showing the world who you are on the inside you may have no trouble. However, the outside dawning of a style that compliments what's going on in your mind and heart tends to plague even the most confident of women. Portraying a personality, whether it be fun-loving or somewhat demure, takes a little thought and planning.

Healthy Fashion

Although the terms "health" and "fashion" may not be commonly used together right now, I believe we will soon see a deluge of "organic/healthy" clothing and accessories that takes us to a new era of living healthy and looking great while doing it. Since I'd like to see every woman consider the "Be Well-Be Beautiful" concept as a lifestyle, I thought we could take a look at some of the products that are currently offered in the market.

Fashion Dos and Don’ts for Summer

1. Don't forget that fit is more important than style. If you wear something because it's your favorite color or it's trendy, just remember to choose pieces that flatter your body type and really fit you well.

Fashion Dos and Don’ts

1. Don't wear flip-flops or mules when it's raining; the flipping motion of the shoes will splatter the backs of your legs with water and whatever else in which you step. I never did this again after ruining a good pair of white pants. 2. Don't sweat the little out-of-place hairs. Today's natural-looking trends not only permit but even encourage styles that are not perfect. It's okay to be a little un-done.

Fashion Dos and Don’ts

1. Do own one timeless dress. 2. Don't think layering is just for winter; this fashion key is hip all year long. 3. Don't ever wear anything that could pass for country curtains or a bedspread. 4. Do find the impressive array of colorful, textured, and classy bags at Dillard's. Pictured at upper left, Antonio Melani "Louise" Shopper, $219.

Fashion Finds For Everyone

Truth be told, no two women are exactly alike. We don't look alike, sound alike, act alike, or share the same fashion sense. Because of this wonderful fact, I decided to do a search for some unique fashions that can be categorized for different style and body types. Just remember, it's okay to cross over into someone else's category. You just might find you are more versatile than you thought you were.

Fashion Dos and Don’ts: Avoiding Bloopers

1. Do pay attention to where you walk; I once caught my heel in a drainage grate. If only everyone could be rescued by a handsome doctor when they step in a hole. (Photo from Columbia Pictures, The Wedding Planner). 2. Do be honest with a friend if she needs to change something about her outfit. You wouldn't want her to let you go out in a too-tight dress or a shade of lipstick that makes your teeth look yellow. It's just good Karma.
