 HOW:  I would take off the linen belt from the jumpsuit and replace it with the brown stretchy Alligator belt.  The belt is a perfect division between the knit top and linen pants. The linen tie won’t go to waste! I would use as a headband in my hair. I would wear the Tracey Reese cardigan open, over the jumpsuit and finish it off with the Type Z shoes!

Where:  I would wear this look to a sunday stroll around the museum and then a picnic in the park. The cardigan is perfect since it tends to get chilly in the museum.  I can take off the cardigan once I am in the park and get some sun on my shoulders sans the tan lines!

GOOD LUCK!!!

Do your Bridesmaids a favor! Lose the formalities!

While at home this weekend I opened up a pandora’s box in my own childhood closet. 

 Boxes, like 17 of them, of old notes from my entire grade school and high school years, My sister’s wedding china (Mind you she’s been married for 6 years and its never made it to her house)  And Dresses…..lots of them! Prom’s, Homecomings and of course Bridesmaids! 

  Why do we keep these when we know were never going to wear them again? On the off chance that “Oh I can just get it hemmed and make it a cocktail dress.”

  Who are we kidding? Every bride claims that the bridesmaids dress that she is choosing is totally re-wearable!  Maybe….. as a donated Prom dress!

   Now, see I am very aware now-a-days how far the wedding industry has come along with these new styles of bridesmaids dresses. Finally the cut and silhouette have improved but one thing hasn’t- The price!  Tack on the alteration and you’re lookin at $200.00-300.00 For a dress that may or not be attractive, your style or too formal for any other occasion than well….being a bridesmaid in another wedding.

    Well summer’s officially here, which is  the most popular time slot in wedding season.  If you’re having a casual summer wedding I have a great idea that your bridesmaids will be extremely thankful for…..yup cheap, mainstream find em’ almost anywhere, Bridesmaid dresses!  That still look pretty enough and formal enough for a wedding!

       Just shop around online or well known speciality stores for a dress that fits your wedding theme.  Here are some great reasons why you should avoid the formal bridal party dresses in lue for a more stylish casual option.

1. Savings!-  Huge savings depending exactly what kind of dress your wanting. If you’ve been in a wedding before, you know all the extra expenses required for being a bridesmaid.  Hair and make up, Decorations, food and games for bachalorette and Bridal showers, Gifts for wedding, showers and bachalorette, shoes for the dress. It goes on and on ! Lets give our friends a break by picking out a dress they will be proud to pay for and that won’t break the bank!

2 Versitility– Think of the selection you can choose from. The Mall or internet is your oyster!

3. Avoid the Pins- Less possibility there will be any need for Alterations

4.  Schedule your own fitting– Instead of 1-2 fittings scheduled in the brides hometown, You have the convience of ordering and going to the store and trying on the dress.

5.  Wearability– The dress doesn’t have the formality that holds you back from being able to wear typical bridesmaids dresses. You can wear a mainstream dress again….and again!

6.  The Perfect Bridesmaid Gift:  Give a useable and appropriate gift! Skip paying for the jewelry or some cheesy ingraved item thats bound to get trashed. Get them the dress! You can find many options from $25.00 and up!  Oh! I am so serious!

Check out some possibilities! My favorite of all (honestly, not partial at all) is Bevello’s,online fashion boutique,Chocolate Covered Strawberry Dress.  This dress is formal enough to be bridesmaid savvy, but also so re-wearable!  Its very girly and feminine and goes great with brown and pink themed weddings!

It’s amazing how you can rejuvenate an old outfit when you throw a brand-spankin-new accessory into the mix. My favorite piece to spice things up? NECKLACES.

I just love themmmmmm. We’ve gone through the preppy silver charmed necklace phase, the Hollister-infused puka shell surf chokers — but this summer, I’m gettin’ an hippie vibe in the jewelry department. I’m talking tarnished, leathery, beaded, flower power…I know, it’s kind of hard to articulate, but I think you’ll see what I mean.

Check out this necklace from Forever 21.
It TOTALLY makes me think of a flower child, I don’t know about you all. Very cute, though!

Also lovin’ this necklace from Fossil:
Peace sign pendants are huuuuuge right now.

And THIS bevello newbie looks straight out of the ’70s:
Good call on the lime green! It was made by one of our independent designers, Foxy Originals. Very bright and eye-catching.

Anyone else have a great 70s fashion find? Leave it in the comments!

HOW: The Heather Grey Cropped Sleeveless Cardigan by [Ryu: is worn over the C & C Company tank dress. I prefer unbuttoned, but it would look great either way. I love ballet flats and think the gray matches the cardigan but the two tone and metallic accent adds texture and contrast!! I love The Sak bags and this one complements the dress and is also great for the environment.

WHERE: For me I would wear this outfit anywhere! For meeting a friend for a nice casual dinner (all dinners in Tucson are pretty casual – LOL), or for a daytime shopping excursion, or for any daytime social event in the summer here.

  Here it is ladies and gents!
