Oh Lauren, you may be miserable because all of your “friends” on The Hills keep walking all over you (except Whitney, I love Whitney:), but chipper up, you have a name ring! You have individually brought back the possibly cheesy, borderline tacky name ring, and you have done it will style.
If you watch closely, all of the other little Hills girls have now copied her (Audrina much?) and are rocking the same ring…. Of course they were smart enough to put their own names on it. Thank god. I will admit, I too love this look and of course would not be promoting it to you as a saint of style if I did not believe in it. And to think, not only will you secretly be promoting the continued production of the very real show “The Hills” by wearing this ring, but you will never forget your own name again. After a long night of drinking, anything is possible. With the partying these girls do on the show, maybe that is the real reason for this new, hot accessory…..
Make your own name ring!
With a new presidency comes a new look and I’m not just talking politics here… Now I love myself a good pantsuit, but if I have to see one more badly dressed woman walk through the doors of the White House I am going to add a proposition to the next election ballot: First ladies much have stylists.
Truthfully, it is well-known that Michelle Obama does not have a stylist (although I am certainly up for the task!) It is true, she does falter here and there, but overall her taste is that of a future first lady. She exemplifies chic sophistication with an overall ore of accessibility that we haven’t seen, well, ever. There will be no $150,000 shopping sprees at Neimans on this side of political town.
To acheive this look is quite simple. Political chic always starts with the right jewelry. A short strand necklace portrays class, elegance and appropriate aristocracy. You are of the people, but just happen to look better than them:) By Michelle using this turquoise color for her accent piece she acheives an extra stylish look instead of stuffy.
The blazer is a flattering style that cinches at her waist accentuating one of the smallest parts of her body. Can we say “boxy blazer” bad, cinched and fitted blazer good. It also has a trendy safari-like feel yet stays under the “blazer” heading which constitutes a more professional feel. Thank you to our new first lady for not only bringing class and elegance to the White House, but a kick ass new style that I am sure will only get better (just like her husband’s presidency) over these next four years…. YES WE CAN (bring style back).

Waist length or cropped has been the only style to surface in recent years, but the longer blazer is making a comeback! Kind of like John Travolta, only way cooler. The big difference this time around is that designers have finally realized that if you make a garment this long, it must fit you properly. Remove shoulder pads, add darts. For this great piece to not overwhelm you, no matter what you size, it must skim the body. If you have a larger heiny, do not wear this. It will actually, just like tying a cardigan around your waist, accentuate the not so positive. It skims your body just until the point where it hits your bum where it then juts out. Not a good look.
Gwyneth Paltrow, a true fashion icon, is showing how a simple blazer can tone down the look of any outfit. Even her friend Madonna’s old “Like a Virgin” dress:) I actually own a dress that is quite similar, but it is not for the fashion faint of heart. Own it, your look that is.
