Tailgate like a lady!

Thanksgiving is almost here and our bellies are fully prepared for the amount of turkey we are about to eat, but is your tailgating outfit prepared for the Thanksgiving Day game? Come on y’all, we live in Texas and even if you aren’t a true Dallasite you probably know that you need to rock an amazing Dallas Cowboy’s outfit to tailgate with the best of them. Here are some tips on how to style a cute tailgating outfit without breaking budget, and without wearing those tacky box cut jerseys.

It is important to remember that you don’t need to break your budget to buy a NFL girl jersey just to support your favorite team. The easiest way to begin is to find an item includes your teams color. I strongly suggest finding a cute, v-neck boyfriend cardigan. If you are going to be outside, the Texas weather is so unpredictable that a fabulous cardigan can keep you warm, while not over heating you if it’s 70+ degrees outside. Since most people in the DFW area are passionate Dallas Cowboy’s fans we have put together an easy and stylish tailgating outfit for upcoming football games. Every woman should have their basic white v-neck tee in their wardrobe, so bust that out and pair it with this dreamy navy cardigan from Target. Wear this cardigan with a pair of black leggings from Forever 21, and light brown leather boots from Charolette Russe that are comfy enough for you to stand in. These boots give you a cowboy feel without being full on cowboy boots which will allow you to wear them more often. This outfit allows you to wear your team’s colors but still be stylish and feminine at the same time. The boots from Charolette Russe are a fabulous deal because when you buy one pair for $42.50 you get an additional pair for $15.50! Continue reading

Don’t SHOCK your parents, instead DAZZLE them!

Everyone wants to dress cute when they’re home for the holidays, but how do you stay trendy and stay under your budget?

This season, the style calls for patterned tops, blazers, and bright colors. The patterns range anywhere from polka dots, to swirls, to motifs; but the choice is really up to you. Blazers have become a hit among celebrities, but why stick to the plain black blazer when you can were a fire-truck red blazer. Along with blazers, are of course, long coats, and vests. It’s always a good idea to add color to your wardrobe. The colors this season, per New York Fashion Week, include, reds and blues paired, but also oranges and yellows. Marigold to be exact. But most importantly you have to be sparkly! You don’t have to buy that Dolce & Gabbana metallic dress or that red, knit Chanel coat. Stores like Forever 21 and H&M are up-to-date with the latest trends of the season and help you stay within your budget. Don’t forget to play with scarvesboots, and hats, to add to your winter look.

Every year H&M collaborates with a design for a bi-annual collection and this fall they have partnered with power house Dontella Versace. This exclusive collection for H&M will encompass all of the things we love about Versace’s heritage- leather, prints, color, and exclusive materials at college friendly H&M prices. The Versace collection will have lines for both women and men and select pieces for the home. The womenswear collection will be dominated by dresses that express the spirit of the season, featuring studded leather, silk, and colorful prints, and accessories including high heels and costume jewelry. The men’s collection will focus on sharp tailoring, including the perfect tuxedo, as well as belts and jewelry for men. For the first time in a designer collaboration with H&M, the collection will include homeware pieces including pillows and bedspreads.

The line will be available in those 300 select stores starting on November 19, 2011. Just in case the new baby store to the H&M family does not get selected as a store for the collection in November, in addition, Dontella Versace has also designed a pre-spring collection for H&M which will be exclusively available in countries with H&M on-line sales starting January 19, 2012.
