Sally HansenIt takes time to maintain a manicure, especially if you care for your nails yourself. So take a break from polishing and try this smart and easy way to keep your nails looking fabulous in a flash. First make sure your bare nails look healthy by massaging cuticle oil or vitamin E oil over your cuticles and nails. Wipe the excess oil from your hands and run a white nail pencil under the rims of your nails. It fakes a french manicure and makes your nails look clean and finished. All it takes is 5 minutes!

Function and Fashion Unite for this Winter TrendFebruary 6th, 2013
Lole jersey slouch hat at REI.comI love when a hot trend is not only very fashionable but it is functional at the same time. That is why I adore this particular trend so much, since I live in the chilly Midwest. Any trend that is warm, I embrace. A slouchy knit hat is just that plus it is incredibly cute. This style of hat are usually knit, woven or crocheted, and the key to keeping this look current is the fit of it. Make sure it is slouchy and roomy. Then wear your hair down, in front of your ears, for a casual cool look. Since they are so stretchy and roomy it won’t flatten your hair. If you have noticed the look on the street lately, you will see this type of hat all over the place. It is everywhere on TV, in the fashion magazines and of course sported by celebrities. It can look cute with matching mittens and a knit type scarf in the same color family. I also love the fact that it can either be worn as a casual look or dressy. It just depends on what you pair it with. A quilted parka would be a nice pairing for a casual look or pair it with your classic pea coat for a dressier option. Whatever you choose, I guarantee you will love this cozy hat and it will become a winter time staple for you. (c) 2013, Dulcet Style LLC
Nylons with Peep ToesJanuary 9th, 2013
I had a question asked recently: can I wear tights or colored nylons with peep toe shoes? The answer is yes, you can and it is a look I love! Both opaque tights and dark nylons look great with a cut out or peep toe shoe. Stay away from bold prints as that looks like there is too much going on with the open toe; save the trendy print tights for a fashion forward look with a pair of boots. Just remember to tuck under the seam at the toes so it doesn’t show.
New Years Eve StyleDecember 26th, 2012
Looking for a no fail outfit for your New Years Eve outing? Here is a simple to pull of party outfit that works for all body types. Start with a silky wrap dress in your shade of red. A wrap dress works for every figure and red is a statement making color, perfect for the festivities. Hoop earrings are a classic touch, go a little oversized to keep the glam factor intact. A clutch purse is essential, your eye-catching dress should not be drug down by a shoulder bag, you need to keep the floaty feel of the dress and pick a playful clutch. The final touch is the shoes, it’s a special night and it calls for unique footwear, so a metallic strappy heel would be perfect or a jeweled pump like these Gianni Bini pair you can find at Dillards. Remember, this night should be magical so make sure you dress for it.

Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel at SephoraWanting to add a little glow to your look for the holiday? It’s easy to do, just use a little self-tanner on your upper body. The perfect time to put on a bronzing product is after taking a shower. After showering, thoroughly dry off and step back in the shower to apply. Cover your arms, chest, neck and face with the self-tanner and wait to dress until it is dry and won’t transfer to your clothing. You may want to do this routine in the evening instead of the morning so you don’t smell like tanner when heading out for the day. And cleanup is a cinch because all you have to do it spray the shower down and the self-tanner residue is gone. So you are left with only the evidence of subtle glow!
