Ski Bunny Chic


After a long hard week of skiing for new years I cannot think of a better post than fashion for snow bunnies! Unless you are in Aspen, looking hot on the mountain and the lodge are more like undercover missions. I have only skied in Vermont and I can tell you that having a matching pink jumpsuit with earmuffs is NOT smiled upon. Yet remember folks, looking good no matter where you are always leaves you feeling good… and lets you meet lots of mountain men (not that I have any experience in this:). I try to make it a rule of thumb to be fashionably appropriate wherever I am. This means I am not wearing high heels with over-sized hoops to dinner at Applebees in no-where USA. It also means that my idea of cute must alter with my destination.

I love, no matter where I am, to stand out in a fun yet reasonable way. These great Pajar fur boots are a completely acceptable way to show off your snowy chic style, be a conversation piece and still fit in. All of my mountain boyfriends were very intrigued by them:) It is also always a necessity to wear a cute ski sweater when tramping on the mountain because a themed outfit is a fun outfit (within reason!!!!). Look the part without wearing a sign on your head that says, “I am here to rock your sexy ski porno dreams!”.

Show Off Your Cojones… With a Watch!

Ah, the holidays are over and it is finally time to put away the credit cards…. Or is it? I am talking sales here people, BIG sales! This time of year is my favorite time of year to exercise one of my all-time best shopping strategies: Get the deal no matter what the season. Purchase the piece even if it wasn’t at the top of your list. If you found it and the price was right, God wanted you to have it. That’s right, there is divine intervention going on here.

Watches can be a sign of wealth, kind of like the bag you are carrying, but cut the crap here. It is just like a bag, buy one that is fabulous and reasonably priced. Wearing ten grand on your wrist might be a bit of overkill unless you are trying to overcompensate for something else… Let’s leave that up to the men though ladies:)

I love this particular watch because I am obsessed with the male inspired style working for women. Why can’t we wear the pants in the boardroom? Or the bedroom…. Truthfully, this is a mens watch. The funny part is that on a lady this watch looks fun and trendy adding a bit of bold to any look, while on a guy this would just look cheesy. It screams, “I really, really, really wish I lived in the era when Charlie Sheen kicked ass in “Wall Street”. This watch really lends itself to feminine power by making the bling aspect (the metal) a little too blingy for a (straight) guy. I would suggest purchasing a watch that is slightly over-sized for your own petite wrist. Go big, go bold, go gold.

Sweater Dresses


I love easy, comfortable and functional garments, the sweater dress is the ideal combination of these qualities. Not to mention that it is super cute and stylish!

It is often hard to wear dresses in the colder months, but the sweater dress keeps you warm and sexy at the same time! Adding tights and boots will keep you warm all the way down to your toes. In the freezing parts of the country I would even get crazy and wear two pairs of tights. Think opaque tights under textured tights. It adds a bit of bling to your look while being completely realistic.

This particular dress is perfect because it is right for the office or for dinner and drinks. Pile on the accessories for your night out with a bunch of bangles and a big pair of hoops. The neckline on this dress should be kept naked because you don’t want to take away from the button detail. I would also consider throwing on black tights with tall brown or bronze boots because it is not the obvious choice. Stand out in a fabulous, sexy and functional way!

Headband Hotties

Bad hair days are a bitch. I hate them, you hate them, even Shinead O’Connor hates them. But lucky for you there is a solution for every problem (well, almost), and all this little issue requires is a hat or a headband, so quit your crying.

What a great way to style up an outfit by adding that extra punch to really hit your look home. So much for covering up a Medusa moment, embrace this accessory and use it on a GOOD hair day! What better way to say you are a “good girl” while acting completely inappropriately. It is the best throw back to your younger years while downing a vodka tonic. Oooohhhh, good times.

This particular band is great for the messier look. Literally throw your hair in a loose ponytail or a chignon and look fabulous. The only hair this doesn’t work with is short hair. It tends to poof out the bottom. Choose a regular headband either thick or thin. Patent leather, tortoise shell, gold, black, colored, love them all! I love to rock a bold pair of earring with a headband because then the world can check out not one, but two awesome accessories.

The Right Way to Tuck Jeans into Boots

First things first, I am SO sorry that I have been MIA for a bit! The traveling for my media tour got to be crazy and truthfully, I was on a mini-holiday the past two days in New Orleans after my last TV hit there. I was busy re-invigorating the town by spending my hard-earned cash on amazing vintage jewelry. I think I am in love with the french quarter:)

Now back to the business at hand, how the hell do you tuck your jeans into boots….properly? One of my least favorite things that I am forced to see everyday is jeans IMproperly tucked into boots. This occurs because people cannot seem to find a simple and logical way to get this task done. This trend is not going away because it is warmer and functional during the winter months so let me now tell you the RIGHT way to get this look!

Step one, buy a pair of jeans that are stupidly skinny and look borderline ridiculous on their own. You know the ones, they are totally annoying to get on because they have the skinniest ankles in the world and you have trouble getting your normal sized feet through them. Also, make sure that they are tight through the knees, that is truly the trouble area once they are tucked (just like this lovely model is clearly showing on her right leg). Step two, buy tube socks. Ok, maybe not tube socks, but they should be sufficiently high without showing above the top of your boots. Step three, tight roll the bottom of the jean to smooth out any possible loose material. You don’t have to do the full out tight roll, just fold it over left to right (or vice versa) at the back. Now for the final step, pull your sock (which should already be on your foot so it is ready to go!) over the tight rolled jean to keep it in place. Now pull on your boot and you should be good to roll!!!!

The only other important part that will make this whole system run smoothly is to do this entire process with your leg as straight as possible, just as you would be standing up. It may not look pretty while you are going through this ridiculous amount of work (it really isn’t that hard:), but damn girl, at least I won’t be shaking my head as I walk by upset by your “loose knees” jeans.
