The Winter Blues

3 STYLE TIPS TO HELP YOU GET THROUGH “NATIONAL STUFF YOURSELF LIKE A TURKEY DAY”!

Thanksgiving Day is fast approaching and for many of us it’s the ultimate day of feasting. If your anything like me, it’sthe scariest day of the year, mostly because while I love eating all of the food, I virtually lack all self control when I get around the mac -n- cheese and stuffing. By the time the next morning rolls around I feel 5 pounds heavier and none of my pants fit! I’m convinced Thanksgiving is the most non-petite friendly holiday ever! Well I’ve come up with 3 helpful style tips to help eliminate the guilt of overeating while still staying stylish this Thanksgiving holiday!

1. Opt for wearing a loser fitting top or dress. This will certainly help to camouflage a full tummy after you’ve made that second trip to the food table!

2. If you must wear stripes of any kind, wear vertical! This will help distract from the unsightly signs of a growing food baby, not to mention help it look smaller!

3. Lastly, choose a high waist skirt or pants to help hold in your full tummy.

Hopefully, these 3 simple tips will help to keep you looking trim and stylish as you stuff yourselves silly this Thanksgiving Day!

Good Eats, Good Luck, and Happy Turkey Day!

INSIDE THE BROOKLYN MUSEUM’S JEAN PAUL GAULTIER (JPG) EXHIBIT

This past weekend I had the pleasure of visiting the Brooklyn Museum to view the JPG exhibit. To say the exhibit was amazing would be an understatement. It was really exciting and inspiring to see the work of such an accomplished and amazingly talented, and true couture designer’s work from the beginning until now. I learned from the exhibit the importance of staying true to your vision, your brand, and your customers. After looking at Mr. Gaultier’s exceptional body of work, he is the perfect example of a designer, that over the last 40 years has created, maintained, and become known for his very strong, womanly, and female-empowering fashions; and dressing women such as Madonna who exemplifies that very imagery Mr. Gaultier has created.

Fortunately, I took tons of photos that I will have to look back on as sources of inspiration. Unfortunately, I was only able to share a select few of the photos with you. I hope you ask will enjoy the photos and be as inspired ad I am. And if you happen took be in the Brooklyn area, stop by the museum and check out the exhibit!

3 REASONS WHY EVERY PETITE GIRL SHOULD OWN A PAIR OF NIKE SKY-HI DUNK SNEAKERS
As a fellow petite (5’2), not partial to wearing heels on a daily basis (I’m all about comfort 24/7. I live in ballet flats!), I’ve always struggled with trying to incorporate a comfortable shoe that adds a little bit of height into my daily outfit choices.  In walks Isabel Marant and her glorious introduction of the sneaker wedge trend!  It wasn’t until Nike hopped onto the sneaker wedge bandwagon, that I began to really take notice and participate in the growing trend. I fell in love when I saw, tried on, and bought my very first pair of the Nike Sky-Hi Dunks.  They’re the perfect incarnation of the sneaker wedge trend.  On the outside they almost look like the regular Nike dunk; on the inside is pure comfort and a perfectly hidden 3” wedge heel.  Not only do they come in a host of fun colors and prints, perfect for EVERY outfit; but the best part is once this sneaker wedge trend has died down and begun to fade out, Nike’s Sky-Hi Dunks will forever remain because of the classic design and uncanny resemblance to the already popular Nike Dunk! So without further adieu….
#1. They’re the perfect shoe for those days you want to feel sporty but girly! Don’t believe me?! Take a look at fellow petite, Kristen Bell (pictured above), rocking her sky hi dunks with a super cute sporty outfit!
#2. Who says heels and wedges have to be uncomfortable?! On days when I’m pounding the rough NYC pavement, I always chose my Nike Sky-Hi Dunks for their endless comfort and all day support!
#3. You’ll have them forever! I think reason’s #1 & #2 pretty much validate this! Trust me, I own 5 pair of them!

15 STYLE TIPS FROM MICHAEL KORS FOR PETITES AND NON-PETITES ALIKE
PICKING THE BEST COAT STYLE FOR YOUR PETITE FRAME…
Fall temps are finally upon us, and soon it will be Winter! Yay?! Ok well maybe not ‘yay’ for the weather, but certainly ‘yay’ for buy new coats!  As the temps drop and Holiday shopping is just around the corner, I figured now is the perfect time to provide a little coat shopping guide for the petites struggling to find something flattering, stylish, and petite friendly!
Tip #1: Choose single breasted, not double breasted coats.  Double breasted coats can add extra bulk to an already small frame.  
Tip #2: Choose a V-neckline shape, because it helps to create the illusion of a longer torso and thereby making you look taller.
Tip #3: Choose a coat that is knee length or shorter.  Anything past the knees can make you look shorter and dowdy.
Tip #4: Choose a coat in a solid color.  I know some of you stylish petites like to go for coats in fantastic prints and patterns to spruce up your mood and add a little bit of color to a cold winter.  Patterns and prints add dimension and depth, which can take away from the sleekness of a well fitting coat; and instead create the illusion of bulkiness.  Choose a solid color for a more sleek and polished look and for the fun of prints and patterns accessorize the hats, scarves, and gloves.
Tip #5: Avoid coats with large patch pockets.  Large patch pockets can make you look shorter, unbalanced, and disproportioned.  Choose coats with hidden welt  pockets.
