First off, I'd like to invite everyone to use this great deal off of Jewelry Bean's new and really awesome Hat & Scarf Collection. The collection is full of the most adorable Beanie Hats and the most snugly Blanket Scarfs, and more. Jewelry Bean and I have decided to collaborate together for the holidays, and they were nice enough to offer my followers this discount. I am not being paid for my endorsement of this company. I truly love their products, and we've worked together in the past and decided to get together again to share in the holiday spirit. Enjoy!

One of the biggest trends in fashion right now is "Athleisure" a combination of athletic and leisure wear... in other words, a way for the big fashion companies to make money off of women deciding that they aren't going to give up wearing their leggings everyday ;)

If you're wondering how to pull off this look, don't worry. There is nothing to it. It really is just the fashion industry giving you permission to wear your comfortable clothes places other than your couch or gym. Where I think the big separation from pure leisure or athletic wear comes from is in the accessories you add and exactly how you style your outfit. Instead of sneakers, wear a pair of heels or killer boots. Instead of a pull over hoodie, wear a rocking leather jacket. And speaking of adding accessories, here's a look at a perfectly fabulous athleisure wear outfit I wore.

Angie, you in danger girl!

Things certainly look different around here, don't they? G'head, take a look around. I worked hard ALL DAY ...with the help of the lovely Chelsea from Get Polished -THANK YOU, GIRL!.. to refresh this blog so take your time to check things out, but come on back, we've got a lot to talk about.

Like the new look? Good. I'm glad, me too! Now, where have I been? Well, I certainly haven't been away just giving my blog a facelift. No Siree. My life was literally in danger!

Yes, that's right. I almost died. Then exactly one month, to the day, later, my mother almost died. It has been the scariest time of my life. A life I can not believe I truly almost lost.

Pay Close Attention to the Woman Behind the Curtain

Today we're taking a behind-the-scenes look at one of my favorite jewelry designers, Ashley, from Candles and Confetti!!

I have been a fan of  -ok fan is a complete understatement, I'm addicted to-  her jewelry for a few years now (Don't worry there's CCA, Candles and Confetti Anonymous, to help with your jewelry buying problems... JOKING!) I remember the first time I found her page on Instagram @candlesandconfetti, I was completely blown away! There were so many great styles and I knew I had to buy something, but I didn't know where to start. Here's where Ashley came in. She's the woman behind the company and when I reached out to her, she went above and beyond with helping me find what I wanted and creating what has turned out to be a downright gorgeous collection.

Summer Heat; Girl and Dress Meet!

Summer's here and that means two things; it's hot and the days are long.
Is that so terrible? Absolutely not... when you're not susceptible to heatstroke. I do not do well with heat. I get overheated very easily and have a tendency to faint.  Luckily I have a wonderful husband that always watches out for me; making sure I'm constantly drinking water when we're out in the sun to keep me cool and hydrated. I also have another wonderful anti-heatstroke device... the dress.

The Complete Guide for Women's Fashion

A few posts back I talked about wearing a shirt that I knew wasn't good for my body type, but I didn't care. I loved the shirt so much and, although the shirt didn't work for me, I was going to make it work come hell or high water!
But then I realized that, although I talked about why the specific shirt didn't work for my specific body type, I didn't actually talk about body types in general and how to dress for them. 
And how can you break the rules, if you don't know what the rules are? HAHA!

Color Blocking and a Baby!

Color Blocking... It became a really big trend a few years ago.
First of all, I don't like "trends". If a style becomes a trend then, eventually, that trend will become out of style, and I don't like that. I don't believe in the "Thou shall wear this and Thou shall not wear this" attitude. And that's exactly what a trend really is. Let me be clear, I don't think there's anything wrong with being trendy and wearing things that are on trend... Just don't knock down other people with that "OMG that's soooo 2010!" nonsense.

But getting back to the topic at hand, Color Blocking, I never really got into it. Not because it was a trend, but because it just wasn't really my style... or so I thought. 

A couple of years ago, I had this awesome hot pink skirt that I really wanted to wear for my birthday, but I wasn't sure what to wear with it. What do you wear with a skirt that is SO bold? The answer: wear another bold color! Hence me finally giving-in to Color Blocking. But I didn't wear a different color entirely, I went with another pink. That's right, Color Blocking can be monochromatic. The secret? Wearing the color in the same color family, but with a completely different underdone. 

So with my bright hot pink neon skirt, I wore a jewel-toned pink on top.

  Beautifully Color Blocked!

Got a Case of the Mondays?

Well, have I got the cure for you!

I recently partnered up with Jewelry Bean, a jewelry company that makes some of the most gorgeous accessories I have ever seen. I talk a lot about how accessories can make an outfit... well, you're definitely going to want to get your hands on their accessories. You'll never have to worry about putting an outfit together ever again. Just strap on one of Jewelry Bean's Statement Necklaces, for example, and no matter what you're wearing, you'll look fabulous...

I mean, looks at these!

 Emerald and Lace, does it get any better?

I'm So Fancy

...but no, not really.

Haha, I like to think of my everyday style as "Causal Chic"
Causal and Comfortable outfits with a little something extra. Just that extra pizzazz to make the outfit exciting. All it takes is just one little accessory; a statement necklace, a rocking pair of sunglasses, a stack full of bracelets. It's not hard. You know that "rule" that says before you leave your house you should take off one piece of jewelry? Forget that. Throw that rule out of your mind. I say, before you leave the house, think of that one little piece that can add to your look and put it on!

Here's a perfect example. Friday, I went out to my local spa/nail salon with one of my girlfriends to get the spa pedicure and manicure that I allow myself to get once a year. Since I was going to a spa were I'd be getting my legs/feet massaged, and since it is not short weather in NY yet, I needed to wear something comfortable and something that would make my legs accessible. So putting on a fabulous pair of skinny jeans or dryclean-only slacks, wasn't sensible. Simple solution... my go-to leggings and a tunic. But you'll hear "Leggings shouldn't be wore outside the gym." "It's lazy styling." "Tunics are so overdone." "Get rid of the Tunic and Leggings Look." Blah Blah Blah! Not when you know how to accessories.

Springing Ahead with Big Boobs

 Spring is in the air. We can all feel it. The weather is getting warmer. The sky is getting bluer. The sun is setting later. And I don't know about you, but it certainly makes me want to dress up in fun flirty colors that make me look exactly how Spring makes me feel. One BIG problem... well actually two big problems... my boobs. I'm a 34DD, and don't get me wrong, I love 'em. That's right, I said it. I LOVE MY BIG BOOBS. Society making boobs into this whole taboo subject that woman should be ashamed to show off is so absolutely ridiculous, but also a subject for another post. Getting back to my original point, despite loving what I've got up top, it limits what kind of tops I can wear.

Take for instance what I wore Saturday night for my brother's birthday dinner.
I got all dressed up in beautiful bright pops of color.

All That Glitters

I absolutely live my life by these words with my fashion. It's why I love wearing bold colors and sparkles and over-the-top accessories. I am bold and colorful and sparkly and over-the-top... and I love expressing that!

2016 Golden Globes Red Carpet Review

The 73rd Annual Golden Globes were on last night and I wasn't as disappointed in the styles as much as I was last year, but for the last couple of years, I don't know what the hell these stars are thinking when they get dressed! 

There was a trend on the Red Capet of this kind of "Half Cape" Look
The best way I can describe it is as if the designer was in the middle of making a cape, the actress called, said "hey I want to wear this to the Golden Globes" and then the designer stopped the Cape and starting to turn it into a dress. And that's a lot coming from me. I LOVE a cape... But if you're going to wear a cape, wear a cape! 

These styles just looked like the actresses had extra fabric growing out of their armpits.
Not a good Look.
