Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes. These are a few of my favorite things!

21 Jan

Im thrilled that the 50’s are back this SPRING 2012!

I just picked up the new February Elle Magazine with Reese Witherspoon gracing the cover and I just want to be transported to the 1950’s put on a frilly dress and bake a pie.  It looks like this Spring Im going to be in heaven (fashion speaking).

For instance, check out this Moschino Cheap and Chic Dress $495

MOSCHINO CHEAP AND CHIC for SPRING 2012

Dolce and Gabbana Spring 2012

These box bags are from 2010 but I think they work with 50’s style.

Here are some pics just for inspiration!

Bridget Bardot

If  you aren’t comfortable dressing 50’s from head to toe, you can just add big sunglasses, retro red lipstick (wet 7 wild has great colors for $1.99) cat eyes, boxed bags and of course a Lila Juliet headband.

I’ll leave you now with a picture of one my favorite style icon.

Have fun being creative with your wardrobe, make up and hair.

Have  a Sweet day!

**Fix a bad hair day, have perfect makeup and have a blissful day**

19 Sep

Just added a video so you could have a soundtrack while you read.

I wake up everyday at 5:45 am to make my daughter lunch for school and then later wake her up and make her breakfast and help her get ready for school. After my daughters totally ready its my turn. I always know what to do with clothes and I consider myself fairly decent with makeup. But my HAIR! It drives me crazy, sometimes its so pretty and wavy and if  Im lucky enough to have my friend Jennifer Cali blow dry it, its perfectly pin straight for 2 days but for those other days, I discovered Goody Spin Pins. I LOVE IT!!

This the answer to all your bad hair days or days your in a rush

 These 2 little babies can give you styles like this.

I love the side bun. Once you make the bun stick in a jewel or a flower

I kind of do really fast, I need to get out the door kind of makeup. But if you have the time, I suggest you learn and watch XSPAKAGE on youtube. When I had more time in California I watched her videos and learned so many tips.

I just got my computer working again, so Ill have a new blog up soon filled with pics and info!

With Love,

Michelle

NYC’s BEST SHOPPING SECRETS. Save your cash and LOOK LIKE Serena and Blair! Seriously.

4 Apr

Lately I’ve been feeling extremely homesick. All I can think about is going to New York and visiting all my best friends. I miss popping into my friend Dahlias home at the Chelsea Hotel and my sewing with my friend Jennifer in College Point Queens. But I really wanted to write this post because I wanted to share my super affordable shopping secrets if you live or happen to be in NYC.  If you dont have Upper East Side money but want to look like you do, KEEP READING. First of all well start with shoes.  Okay, depending on where your at in NYC you may have to take the subway into Queens for these shoes BUT ITS WORTH IT! Why? Because all the shoes in this place are $5, $7 and $15. THATS RIGHT! The shoes don’t look tacky or cheap, they are super super cute!

OKAY, OKAY, I’ll tell you were I got them.

37-39 82nd Street, Jackson Heights 11372

(718)458-4272

(718)458-4657

Okay, lets move onto clothes. I love new clothes more than anything, but sometimes you just cant afford to pay top dollar for an outfit.  The GOODWILL right  by my old apartment in CHELSEA is amazing.  I promise you’ll find something Amanda Tanen-ish (Ugly Betty) here.

You’ll find items by CALVIN KLEIN, JILL STUART, MARNI, BETSEY JOHNSON, ALICE&OLIVIA and more.  They also have great vintage. I’ve bought a Betsey Johnson Dress for $13 and a Marni shirt for $7. I have the coolest Armani black leather jacket from there that I purchased for $27 dollars. OMG! I know “Goodwill” may bring up some weird connotations but this Goodwill is beyond AWESOME!

GOODWILL

BUT….. If your like my boyfriend and you must have something brand new that no one has ever worn before.

Go to DAFFYS

1311 BROADWAY AT 34th street

Here you’ll find amazing stuff for really cheap. They have BIANNUAL sales first two weeks of January and July. I bought a light blue faux fur XOXO jacket for $3.00. Yes, I’m serious and its adorable!

SADLY DAFFYS IS NOW CLOSED SORRY 3/30/13 R.I.P DAFFYS

I hope this helps some frugal fashionistas. I still don’t know where to get amazing deals like this in San Francisco but if you have any New York Shopping questions, feel free to ask away.

XOXO,

See what happens when I give Lila a needle and thread and she sees LADY GAGA PICS!

30 Mar

So, we I think its unanimous that we all love LADY GAGA. Well I do. I like her because she isn’t typically beautiful in the Hollywood sense.  But she is pretty, has the best figure EVER and she can entertain. She embodies the real definition of an “ENTERTAINER”.  Shes is also from my hometown of New York. My 9-year-old daughter saw some Lady Gaga still pictures and asked me for a needle and thread.  She thought the outfits were interesting. She then started to look through my boxes of fabric and she came up with a really cute REMIX of the outfits Lady Gaga wore in the TELEPHONE video. (Another video which I love!!)

Ive already decided to be Lady Gaga for Halloween. Its the one time of the year you can get away with anything and I plan to juice it for all its worth.


All outfits and pictures were made and taken by my daughter Lila Juliet. I just thought it was totally cute to post. She wants me to start making barbie clothes. I ordered a few patterns. If it materializes into something cute, I’ll post them in my etsy store.

XOXO,
