WWW: Who, What, Wear Spring/Summer Season- Tropical prints

Wednesday, May 13, 2015

Who: Phylece LaVally CEO & Co-Founder of Fee La Vee Botanicals
What: Tropical Print
Where: eShakti 

We recently had a few 80 degree days in DC lately and it reminded me of the hot summer prints that I saw everywhere on the runways for this season.  If you are trying to figure how to wear this trend then check out how Phylece is sporting this great trend:
  1. Stay Grounded- In order to not compete with the fabulous print opt for a neutral shoe.
  2. Simply Accessorize- Add simple accessories in a metallic or complementary color that won't compete with the print.
  3. Get Cozy- In order to stay warm, add a coverup or jacket in a shade that is pulled from the print. The similar color stream will help pull the outfit together.

Spring is the perfect time to break out your lace dresses.  There are so many brunches and engagement parties to attend.  I love to wear my lace dress to work for casual fridays and days that I will get a chance to walk outside.  If you are looking to dress up your lace look this spring, then by add a fresh pair of pumps and a contrasting accessories!  If you are looking for a cute lace dress to wear then check out NY& Co's collection.

Guide to Throwing a Fight Party: Mayweather vs Pacquiao

Saturday, May 2, 2015

There is Fight Fever in the Air! Mayweather vs Pacquiao Fight Fever that is!  If this fight is anywhere near the hype, then this will be the fight of our generation.  I am so excited to see two of my favorite fighters finally getting in the ring together.  The fight is long over due.  The fight has gotten so exciting that we just don't want to leave home (and it is really late so we want to go to sleep afterwards). So that means we get to throw a FIGHT PARTY!  If you are throwing a last minute Mayweather vs Pacquiao FIGHT PARTY then use these tips for inspiration:

  • IT IS ALL ABOUT THE FIGHT- Turn on the surround sound and arrange all the seating to face the big screen tv.
  • SET THE TONE: Pull out the boxing gloves and red and black streamers and be inspired by vintage boxing printables.
  • WHAT TO WEAR: If I was in Vegas I would be wearing a nice little cocktail dress and 5 inch heels or something with sass like this:
Sense I am at home I recommend the comfy, casual attire with a bit of sexy thrown in like a jumpsuit, a bold slack or a pair of leggings with a blazer.

  • FEED THE MASSES: There will be tons of testosterone the air so here are a few ideas to keep those tummies from growling:

50 Shades of Red

Friday, May 1, 2015

Hey Pretty Ladies! I have really been embracing the color and texture of my hair this year and as you can see I have red hair, and not just any red hair, I have 50 shades of red hair! From Strawberry Blonde to Rich Auburn, I choose colors that fit my mood and life.  On any given day I could be running a 5k, giving a presentation, holding a lunch meet-up for co-workers, attending a PTA meeting and meeting with friends for drinks, and that is just in one day!  My lifestyle is fun, ever changing and full so I need a hair color that keeps up with my vivacious lifestyle and constantly changing hair style and schedule.  Currently, I have been coloring my hair with the Age Beautiful product above, which had been covering my grays pretty well however my hair grows really fast and although I fully embrace my gray hair and often allow it to grow out on purpose, sometimes I would like to touch it up for an important event or a meeting.  That is when my coworker told me about I  Madison Reed's root touch-up product.  
She has tried many of the root touch-up products and loved them so I am excited to give it a try.  When I try it I will let you know.  Hair is the best and most natural accessory that we have in life.  The way we wear and color our hair reflects how we feel inside.  If you are thinking of changing your hair color check out this cool hair profile tool from Madison Reed to find your perfect hair dye color.
