Boho ChicFebruary 4th, 2010

Enjoy our guest blogger from Steel Pony!

Orange Steel Pony Top

Orange Steel Pony Top

Boho chic is back in a big way. Flowy skirts, feathers, gladiator sandals, beads – you can see it all in magazines & on runways. This orange top would be a fabulous addition to a bohemian wardrobe.

Pair it with a long skirt or over a maxi dress. Or choose a more rough & tumble look by pairing it with cuffed jeans. Then add these handmade accessories and you’re out the door!

Wearing Steel Pony clothing is so easy, you need an equally easy hairstyle to complement your apparel! When you choose a hair comb like this one fromWhichGoose, even a simple ponytail makes a big statement.

When the clothing you wear makes an artistic statement by itself, you don’t need your jewelry to compete for the attention! I found this simple bracelet – again with shades of orange – that would add some sparkle without overpowering

the Steel Pony top. DnJDichroicArtGlass uses heavy gauge copper wire and glass beads, reminiscent of sea glass, to create this boho-style piece.

To complete any boho look, you need a great big slouchy bag. I love that this one, by thingsSHEcarried, breaks away from the usual distressed leather in favor of painted linen. I choose this one for the red detail. I think that a little pop of analogous color breaks up the orange and keeps the boho look from “trying to hard.”

If you like it than you better put a belt on it….January 24th, 2010

belted chambrayOk, pardon the title but I have Beyonce’s pop song “If you like it than you better put a ring on it” running through my head. 

I’m sure there are a few of our readers out there that made New Year’s resolutions to drop a few pounds and are now experiencing some loose clothes.  First off, congrats to you for sticking with a program and investing in your health.  Now, secondly let’s talk about those loose clothes, especially jackets and shirts.  Try adding a belt.  A belt is a modern way to stretch those clothes a bit further before you need to purchase the next size (or two) smaller.  Use a thin belt for cardigans and jackets, a thicker or double belt for blouses and shirts and either for a dress.  There are so many different belts and styles to choose from.  Try a twill, skin, or raffia belt in a neutral tone to get the most wear.

Dress Me Up!January 6th, 2010

For me, a Friday night out with my husband is few and far between anymore.  Since the boys are getting older, my oldest is now a teenager (yikes), we are busy with their sports and activities.  But, occasionally, we will  sneak out for a night.  But then I ponder – what to wear?  Okay, you know I have a plan for all events, so I’d love to share my strategies for dressing for a few of these specific events.  Next week I’ll start with one that has been hitting my calendar a lot lately, the friends birthday party.  You know, the fun ones, in the evening, without the kids!  So be sure to check back!
