Spring ’16 is a turning out to be a big nod to the seventies – in both fashion and footwear. One trend we are noticing in a huge way is laser-cut shoes. They run the gamut from espadrilles to booties to sneakers, booties, shooties, and everything in between. They are so cool (literally) since they get a little air on your feet in the hot summer heat! Slip on a pair of block heel laser-cut mules to wear with faded flare jeans or try a pair of lace-up flats with a boho maxi dress. So cut yourself a slice and get some laser-cut shoes now.
Drama Alert! After a cigarette break (who still smokes?) we are back to the bra fitting party – where we left off from last week on the Real Housewives of New York. Jules is going team Dorinda and not Bethenny because Dorinda got her on the show. Mistake. Anyway, these bra fitters are probably like “these bitches are wild animals.” The claws are out!
Lord help me. I’m not sure I can sit through this drivel again. This week’s Mad As A Hatter description of the Real Housewives of Dallas when I hit the info button stated “LeeAnne enlists a designer to create an extravagant hat for the Mad Hatters Tea Party.” Really? This is interesting? Really?
Yep. It’s that dreaded time of year. Time to think about bathing suits. So recently I talked about my favorite cover-up, the kaftan/kimono, which actually made me excited to hit the pool. Then I remembered at some point I will have to remove it and get into the pool. That’s not as fun. I’m sure by now you already know there is nothing more flattering than a black bathing suit. They visually help you drop 10 pounds instantly. Yet, you may be thinking, they are so boring. Well not anymore, I was amazed how many black bathing suits I found with details like ruffles, lace, fringe and draping. I am actually quite excited.
This show could be renamed the Real Divorcees of New York except for Jules who is truly married (for now) but is a complete ditz. She can’t make coffee and is disgustingly thin. Her parenting and cooking segments are pathetic and boring. Doesn’t her husband know by now she can’t make coffee? “My husband loves me as long as I put the effort in. Morning time is family time! There’s not enough of me. My life is being the mother to three children.” Whatever. Until the nanny takes over. Honey, the only way you are getting back for another season is if you either go to a hospital for an eating disorder and they can make a story around that or if your husband cheats on you and even that didn’t help Kristen Taekman. Moving on.
Chances you or at least one of your friends and family members is addicted to Instagram, Twitter, Vine or generally loves to post pictures of themselves and anyone they happen to be with on various social media sites. And that’s generally great – for them. You may not be thrilled if the pics they post are less than flattering, so here’s how to look great in digital snaps no matter what (even without a filter) at any age!
No, you don’t have to be a cheerleader or even 16 to partake in this hot trend. Of all the shoe trends for the Spring ’16 season (and there are many) one I am loving is the pom pom embellishment. I was a sucker for a good bow (in the 80’s and more recently), rhinestones (in well the 80’s again and more recently) and now I adore the pom pom. You need to have a bit of a sense of humor to pull this look off.
