Whitney Helmich, a fabulous Phoenix based stylist, teamed up with one of our favorite fashion photographers, Michelle Herrick, to shoot looks for a small fashion magazine. Using Klury’s Versace Floral Pants and Vintage Beaded Top, they nailed the Au Courant look. We love the vintage flare to a high fashion look they captured.
A little sparkle and a few polka dots can take the standard French Tip look to the next level. To create this weeks nail DIY, Megan used China Glaze-Oxygen, Essie-Merino Cool and the Stripe Rite pink glitter. Beginning with a standard French manicure, Megan used a skinny paintbrush to add small polka dots on the tips and topped the look off with a thin line of glitter. The simple dots and glitter create a one-of-a-kind look perfect for any style!
As the temperatures rise, sleeves and hemlines alike are getting shorter. But as a young professional (who also happens to have extremely hot-natured co-workers) short, strapy dresses and tanks with shorts are not necessarily a viable solution. I’ve been brainstorming ways to implement fresh, summery styles while still being prepared for 8-4:30 in a meat-locker-turned-office. So, with the summer solstice on the horizon, a question that plagues me every year has returned: are maxi dresses suitable for all body types?
I’m sure we all have that one friend: Amazonian height, narrow hips, legs that don’t touch. She is stunning, beautiful and can strut into a room wearing a floor length dress in a fun, bright pattern and turn the heads of men and women alike. However can I, on the opposite end of the spectrum, with height that easily falls into the “petite” end of the scale but curves that do not, also sport this fun summer look?
And, if you’re of the belief that maxi dresses are fair game for all women (assuming there are some of you out there) what are the rules? What should my shopping parameters be? Fabric that lightly kisses the floor or a more sensible hem that swings around the ankles? Bold, bright patterns or muted solids? Cotton? Jersey? Chiffon?
