First, the Fishtail Braid. This is a unique braid that looks great when your dealing with long hair.

Continue to grab pieces from the back of each part and overlap them.

All you have to do is pull your hair to one side. Begin twisting your hair tight. Once its all twisted wrap it in bun form and secure it wit

How to Find Great Back to School Fashion Deals & Styles

August 3, 2010

I can not believe that these warm summer days are about to go away. The one thing I love about Fall is back to school shopping! I actually work in retail, and we’ve been switching out all the clothes to cute sweaters, jeans, and scarves.

I am a big believer in spending (LITTLE). I am such a bargin shopper. I go straight to clearance. While you can find cheap, unique clothes at places like Target, TJ Maxx, Playdoh’s Closet, and thrift stores… you can find even CHEAPER items in your own closet!

  • Get inspired by ads in magazines. You can always have multiple styles!
  • Get the look for less. Never spend $100 dollars when you can get it for $20
  • Color has purpose. Black makes you look skinny, white & black is elegant, yellow makes you look happy, blue is serene.
  • Do not over-do anything. Look classy.

4 Ways to change up your closet:

  • Go through your closet! No one ever goes through their closet. We only wear what we like, over and over again. Take what you like and put it in the back. It’s time to be daring and use the clothes you forgot about. Maybe there are still some t-shirts with tags on!
  • Change the sleeve length. The new “IN” this year is “off the shoulder” shirts.
    You could change the style of one outfit  by just pulling down the sleeve a little. You could actually cut long sleeves into three-quarter length or sleeveless and wear with jeans for a rugged look.
  • Layer it up. Something may look really ugly alone, but wearing it with something else might give it pop. Try to stick to two colors. Wear a large top over a colorful shirt, cami under a button-up, leggings under a mini skirt.
  • DIY. Add sequins, lace, or scissors to something you don’t like.

The best thing I can tell you is to try on everything. Mix everything together, and try stuff you wouldn’t normally mix together. You don’t know how many outfits you’ll get!

August 3, 2010

Start by being yourself! You need to be comfortable in your own skin (and of course in your clothes) never wear something that is to uncomfortable. There are plenty of clothes out there that are comfortable and trendy!

Here are some tips for staying trendy!

– Gray is the new blue! Apparently gray is a good color to wear and for the summer it’s even better because it’s not as dark so the sun isn’t attracted to it as much!

Animal prints are in! Some people are a fan and some aren’t but hey it never hurts to try something new!

– Sandals like these go with almost any outfit! They can go casual or can go for a fancy look.

A scoop neck dress is a great dress for the summer, spring or fall it also goes in at the waist to help show off your curves.
