WHILE LOOKING UP THE HOTTEST TREND PREDICTIONS (AND DID U KNOW A SUBSCRIPTION JUST TO VIEW PHOTOS ON TREND STOP IS $3500 FOR ONE YEAR!-NUTS- IT IS BECOMING A SIN TO ADD A PHOTO TO YOUR BLOG (FREE ADVERTISEMENT!). SO HERE IS WHAT I'VE FOUND SO FAR. I LIKE WHAT THE NEW GLAMOUR HAS FOR SPRING.

MIX AND MATCH GUIDE

animal prints.any floral will do!

HERE IS A GUIDE TO SHOWING OFF YOUR MIX-AND-MATCH TALENTS. THESE PHOTOS ARE FROM INTERIOR DESIGNER SWATCHES. THE INSTRUCTION GUIDE IS FROM AN EXTERIOR DESIGNER! THIS TREND IS TAKING OFF LIKE CRAZY AND STILL GOING TO BE AROUND IN 2010- ACCORDING TO THE FASHION GUIDES. I LOVE THIS TREND, ESPECIALLY AS A THRIFTER AND MAKES MY CLOSET SEEM NEW AND SHINY DURING TOUGH ECONOMIC TIMES. THAT MAY BE THE REASON BEHIND THIS TREND, AS TRENDS IN FASHION USUALLY MIRROR TRENDS IN SOCIETY. I still believe that personal style varies , and we should all be our own designers, but these tips can be helpful- especially for me, who tends to "over-do" my outfits with accessories out the wazoo!

ALL U HAVE 2 BE IS U! / NAVY HIPPY DRESS.




scarf optional!but necessary!

SOME ITEMS I CHOOSE TO KEEP ALWAYS. This dress is one. I found a store on Hilton Head Island called Loose Lucy's, and fell in love with the "DEAD HEAD" style there. This dress was a gift form that shop. It's not a vintage Chanel to pass down my family tree, but means that much to me. I "trended" it up with layers- another skirt, the sox/boots combo over leggings. Added a thrifted velvet purse, wool hat and scarf. I like the result-it's me- my style- no cookie cutter involved. When I went out, I put a tan trench over it and the sleeves were hanging out for some more flavor!

BRIGHT COLORFUL DAY




Bright colors are everywhere this fall/winter from accessories to

tights and everything in between! I found these mustard shoes

the other day for less than $5.00, so decided to add some

primary colors with them. This day was sunny and a good day

to pop out in all jersey cotton. Layered with black, I even layered

my tights with socks. I felt a little bright as I usually only wear

this much color as accents to my basics. This time I added

basics to the colors! *SHOES; BASIC EDITIONS- *TOP DRESS:TARGET-*BOTTOM DRESS: ROUTE 66.

MY NEW THRIFTED FAVORITE/ AVON DRESS AND MOSSIMO CARDI




I ADDED A RED PURSE : from VILLAGER, AND A RED WATCH FOR PUNCH.




I COULDN'T STOP SNAPPING!      
  I REALLY LIKE WEARING CREAM SHOES WITH DARK LEGGINGS.



IT WAS A VERY SUNNY DAY SO MY WHITE COSMO SHADES PAIRED WELL. THEY KEEP
DOWN GLARE AND HAVE SUNBLOCK VALUE.
WHICH HELPS KEEP AWAY THE UNDER-EYE
WRINKLES!
AS A TEEN, I SUNBATHED WITH BABY OIL
AND IODINE! A DECISION I REGRET AS MY
SKIN IS VERY DAMAGED BECAUSE OF IT.
AN OUNCE OF PREVENTION IS WORTH A POUND OF CURE!

I NEED TO PEE !





Is it the outfit or the photos that attracts others to a blog, or a post on a community site? I enjoy great photos as much as anyone, but find myself (and others) trying so hard to get a "goldfish" (shiny and attractive) shot that sometimes the creativity of the outfit seems to get lost. I can't tell u how many shots I've taken just to get one where I look good. I really appreciate the ladies who take great photos and are creative with their outfits-isn't that what we all long for? but, my resolution is to not go for the commercial appeal of a look, but the creativity of the look. I so appreciate the gal who may not have the best camera, but has consistently fab. looks. Don't get  me wrong, I love both, as i am really getting into photography, and i looove a great crisp photo and a fab. look! My hats off to the blurry, dark, underexposed fashionistas out there!   *this photo left; looks like i need to pee! * photo right; better shot of my thrifted purse. That was the goal of these photos, to show off my 50 cent find, but tried to look "sexy" when i posted this on weardrobe. What was I thinking?
