The hottest trend for special occasion this spring is what’s called “Tea Length”, a reference to those days when women got all dressed up to have tea and gossip. Since I don’t know anyone who still does that, the only thing to survive from these “tea dresses” is the very flattering length.
And the winner is....Always #Like a Girl. Sure, the Super Bowl was great and the thrilling ending was one for the record books. But after watching the stereotypical halftime show with Katy Perry channeling Madonna from 20 years ago, and all the girls in bikinis, I was thinking things haven't changed much in the last few decades.
Can't believe it...Valentine's Day is just a few weeks away and let’s admit it, the majority of us sleep in tanks or tees and some sort of drawstring bottoms...until Valentine's Day. Then, we like to go to bed wearing something flirty and sexy.
Last night was the SAG Awards, standing for Screen Actors Guild. It’s actually my favorite awards show because it’s actors voting for actors. Last night also had more than its fair share of down-to-there dresses, and there should have been an award for Scotch tape since everything stayed in place.
Charmin, yes, the toilet paper, has a trending ad that says “You don’t have to deflate Charmin to make it more squeezable”. Clever! We’ll be seeing lots more of this and, since I am an advertising junkie, I just love the recent group of ads from Halos oranges. Have you seen the one with the horse head in the dad’s bed because the halos box was empty? If you don’t get it, it’s from the original Godfather and it's genius! Onto the real stuff – fabulous sweaters that bring some art to our lives.
I love that the best boot sale is in January since I get 3 more months of wear at the lowest price of the season! We went through our faves and noticed that there are dozens, yes dozens, of boots that were under $50.
Do we buy winter clothes on sale, or get a jump-start on spring with something fresh and fabulous? With a little searching, we can have them both. It used to be that there were cold weather clothes and warm weather clothes. Now, thanks to the genius of layering, that line isn’t so clear and we can get great clothes now that we can wear straight through the year.
We all get pretty jaded by the awards shows and this year’s Golden Globes was much more about the fashion than the less-seen independent films and premium-pay cable shows. No question, the best accessory at the Golden Globes was cleavage, real or created.
We've already changed the name of our blog, and now our website, OneStopPlus.com, is becoming fullbeauty.com, a name that accurately reflects and reinforces the sensibility of living life to the fullest…enjoying who you are and who you want to be, how you look and how you want to feel, what you get and what you want to give, knowing that fullbeauty is as much about caring as it is about curves.
We all know that women buy about 10 times as many tops as bottoms because they’re easier to fit and most of us just like the top half better than the bottom half. So when we do invest in bottoms, they better be flattering and versatile.
