Just curious if you have any fashion tips or tricks, please send them my way. Also, do you have a favorite store? Favorite fashion item?

The heat wave is affecting millions of people in the US and higher temps are happening around the world. My fashion advice is to wear loose-fitting, lightweight, light colored fabrics, but also, please carry water, check on your neighbors, and provide water and shelter for animals. Wild critters need a drink too. <BR> Be careful out there. <em>247</em> <BR> Sun, 21 Jul 2019 08:37:45 EST 2019 Oscar fashions Opinions? Worst? Best?

With the move toward simplifying life, many online sources talk about condensing your wardrobe.

Mon, 3 Feb 2014 20:52:37 EST Who Do you Want to Wear? If you had the chance for a big name designer to dress you...who might you pick? <BR> <BR> I'd lean towards Oscar De La Renta and Elie Saab!

So my DH has been upping his fashion game of late-going out of his comfort zone and really trying new styles and colors, etc....and as we shop for his newly acquired taste for fashion, I've discovered that there is a whole world for men that is quite exciting :-) so many colors and styles and ideas, I think they almost match us in the color department now, ---is this a trend your area? <BR> <BR> I really find it refreshing, there is nothing like a well dressed man :-) and I'm glad the fashi... Tue, 14 Jan 2014 16:46:44 EST Are all coats just HUGE or what? Yesterday I went end-of-season coat shopping. Most of the stores I went to had almost nothing. The first store had only 3 long coats, two mediums and one 2x. I tried the medium, and it was SWIMMING on me. I thought it was mismarked, but the other medium was the same. <BR> At the second store, selection, only smaller and larger sizes remaining on the racks. My choices were 2x, 3x, or 8. I tried the 8. I am SHOCKED to say it fit PERFECTLY. It buttoned easily and wasn't tight anywhere. <BR> WTH... Sun, 12 Jan 2014 09:34:13 EST Old School or New School I was wondering how many people embraced the newer style rules? <BR> <BR> Like wearing pink and orange, together. <BR> <BR> Mixing prints <BR> <BR> Wearing black and brown. <BR> <BR> I cannot bring myself to do these things. No matter how hard I try. <BR> <BR> I do wear white after Labor Day. Mon, 23 Dec 2013 16:29:47 EST Matchy Matchy What do you think about being super matchy matchy? <BR> <BR> (e.g. Yellow earrings, with yellow necklace, with yellow bracelet. Or zebra print top with zebra print shoes.) <BR> <BR> I know Stacy and Clinton say it's a big no on...but what is your opinion? I think it looks silly most of the time.... I have been guilty of red bracelet with a red necklace...but that's the extent of my 'matchiness'.... how bout y'all? Sun, 22 Dec 2013 15:38:20 EST End of year reflecti ons..... As the year rolls to a close, I take stock of my life-the great, bad, and ugly-and I look for ways to improve my life and to be a more useful human being. Fashion wise, I think we are always learning, improving and updating :-) <BR> <BR> I think the biggest risk I took this year was wearing more strapless pieces...I never thought I could ((34HH cup) did not want to be scandalous lol, but I found some elegant pieces I was able to pull off successfully. <BR> <BR> But I do need to be more con...

I grew up in a household where we dressed up for Thanksgiving dinner. <BR> My spouse grew up in a household where they wear football jerseys and pajama bottoms and can't wait to get back to the game on TV. <BR> <BR> I'd love to wear something nice, but in actuality I will probably wear jeans, a sweater, and wedge booties. I painted my nails a neutral mauve-beige. <BR> <BR> What about you? Tue, 26 Nov 2013 16:32:21 EST Are you a natural fiber Fashionista? I have noticed in the past few years, my purchases especially for clothing are for clothing made of natural fibers - hemp, cotton, linen, silk and wool. And if a blend the % of natural fiber must be greater than the non natural fiber. <BR> <BR> I now do more ironing than I did in the past (but that may be due to college kids in the house and DH) and I use more of the at home "dry cleaning" kits. <BR> <BR> I don't mind the extra work. <BR> <BR> I have not figured out why, but I just don't l...

Do you believe they work, or is it just another way to get to your hard-earned dollars? <em>30</em> <BR> <BR> Personally for me. I love deals, especially when I know that these companies paid a fraction to mass produce what I'm paying top dollar for. I do belong to some clubs that send special deals and savings, which has helped my wallet in the long run. In the times we are in, it is always good to save money!! Thoughts? Wed, 16 Oct 2013 22:14:17 EST TV show makeovers Who does good ones? <BR> I always love (well, USUALLY love) Kathie Lee and Hoda's makeovers. The clothes, hair and makeup are always excellent (not always my style, but always an improvement). They have a great makeover team on that show. <BR> Today, however, I was watching Rachel Ray. The makeover was HORRIBLE. The makeup, and hair looked awful, and they put her in such a cheap looking dress that didn't fit well and was DEFINITELY NOT flattering on her. I wanted to cry for her because you co...

We are all different. What is your choice? <BR> <BR> How high are the highest heels that you wear? How high do you soar? Tue, 8 Oct 2013 23:32:27 EST What do you wear with a sequin skirt? I found one that I love. I'd like to wear it more than once a year.

My "sexy" is in the attitude - when I get dressed no matter what I am wearing there is a confidence <BR> <BR> then there are certain things that take my confidence to a different level - like my pants always fit nice hug my hips and waist and fall nicely over my thighs - with pointy toe pumps a tee shirt or crisp shirt and short blazer, this "uniform" just makes me want to strut and I feel like "yeah you got it going on" <BR> <BR> or a nice dress that highlights me - the fit, the colors <BR...

I was in Kohls today, shopping for a white denim vest or jacket to wear over my maxi (just thought that would look cute together!). Anyway, I tried on a couple, and I liked the 2nd one, but it was $50, which I perceived to be a little high for a jeans vest at Kohls. Then I noticed a lot of sale signs... so I double checked at one of the price check kiosks where you scan the tag, and the jacket was on sale for $35. Well, that price was right in line with my expectations, so I bought it. <BR> ... Fri, 12 Jul 2013 18:10:37 EST ??

Fri, 11 Jan 2013 22:22:55 EST Sometimes I by a suit just b/c I like the blazer. If it's a skirted suit, usually the skirt fits too (but often too short); but if it's a pants suit, it's a craps-shoot whether the pants will work. The past two pants suits I've purchased, the pants went to Goodwill. But a good blazer is worth the price of a suit to me. <BR> My new, pale beige pants suit shipped today. I can't really imagine when I would wear pale beige slacks, but I'm super excited about the blazer. I can use it right away.

But when I feel like everything is going great, I dress up! <BR> <BR> My roommate is the opposite. When she's down, she tries to hide it by getting particularly stylish. On a regular day, she looks nice anyway, but she goes all-out on her bad days. <BR> <BR> Which type of person are you?

Black, I can wear over and over again, Red I like but probably won't be able to wear as much. <BR> <BR> Anyone's advice would be appreciated. Wed, 1 Feb 2012 14:17:43 EST This or that?

I need advice if anyone else has had this issue. Lately, I have noticed a couple of my friends constantly mimicing everything I do! One lady I don't spend much time with & infact, basically, we are just FB friends, the other lady is one of my CLOSEST friends! I started to notice this awhile ago, but now it's really driving me nuts!

I'm not really new to SparkPeople since I've been on here before but seeing as it's a new year and I'm starting over (and my old account is no longer active :P) I've made a new account. I'm hoping to lose 95 pounds by the end of this year which will bring me back down to my pre-pregnancy weight of 135 pounds. I'm a very open and fun person and I'm looking to make friends who have goals similar to mine.

Tue, 27 Dec 2011 21:23:51 EST Window Shopping and Inspirations Since I shop secondhand more often then not, make theatrical costumes, or make my own vintage inspired clothes, I just love looking for new ideas from odd, old, or unusual sources. <BR> The Debbie Reynolds Auction Catalog is one of my favourite finds. <BR><BR>reynolds-auction/debbie-reynolds-the-a<BR>uction <BR> It's a pdf file, download for free. <BR> <BR> What's your inspiration? Fri, 23 Dec 2011 22:38:44 EST Looking to Reunite with My Inner Fashionista I've always loved fashion. I can recall many of the outfits I wore as a child in the 60s and a teen in the 70s - including the go-go boots, elephant pants, and beaded headbands. I taught myself to sew at an early age and have been designing and sewing ever since. <BR> <BR> As a young woman I was slim, stylish, and fashion savvy... but somewhere along the way I became fat, frumpy, and a fashion DON'T. <BR> <BR> For the past 2 years I have volunteered as a Theatrical Costume Designer & Builde...

Wed, 7 Dec 2011 20:29:54 EST Hi! Hi everyone, <BR> <BR> I've lost almost 80 lbs on Spark and now I'm waaaay more into fashion - wearing skinny jeans, vintages dresses, etc. I read a billion fashion blogs and I'm a make up freak. :-) Looking forward to the Fashionista forum! Mon, 5 Dec 2011 21:33:24 EST Hey there! New guy here! Hey folks, how ya doing? I'm eighteen, and must say I'm not a huge fashion guy. I joined because I have a huge love for suits and ties. A Christmas gift of mine is a Marc Anthony velvet suit coat. Trust me, it's totally awesome. Issue is, it's slim fitting and my belly isn't exactly the best fit for it, but otherwise? Awesome. So, I'm inspired to lose the weight so I can fit in slim fitting clothes. I figured I'd fit in here :) Glad to meet you all! Thu, 1 Dec 2011 09:07:27 EST Hautelook Great site for deals!

Mon, 11 Jul 2011 20:36:47 EST Shoes...need I say more? While in Philly, I have come to discover Barefeet. We supposedly have 1 in Texas, but I haven't seen one...the shoes are low priced and CUTE! Bought 2 pair as a result...Spark back a shoe store you think is all that. Tue, 28 Jun 2011 23:49:08 EST Rompers???? I'm seriously disturbed by this rompers trend. I saw a woman today, nice figure, average, but over 40 yrs old, wearing a strapless beige linen romper - short short short - it just looked so WRONG. <BR> <BR> Rompers may be fine when you are 20. MAYBE. They are even better when you are 2 years old. <BR> <BR> What's your take on the rompers trend this summer? Sun, 26 Jun 2011 11:23:20 EST Do you hide clothing purchases? Not hide in the back of the closet - but try to sneak them past DH, BF, SO, or whomever? <BR> <BR> DH doesn't understand why I own three different black skirts - to him, they all look the same. Or however many white tops - again, he thinks they're pretty much the same. <BR> <BR> So when I buy new clothes, even just one item, I tend to kind of quietly sneak them into the closet. Not mention in. Just hang them up, and wear them eventually. So he won't know that I bought something (with my...

You know, where someone is doing something TOTALLY wrong and you just want to tell them (but are too polite to do so)??? <BR> <BR> I know several people who wear the wrong size, or wrong kind, of bra - and then they wear knit fitted shirts or tanks, and the bra creates all kinds of wrinkles and ripples across their chest. Absolutely makes me crazed, it looks so bad! Either change the bra, or change the shirt so I don't see that it doesn't fit you! Wed, 18 May 2011 11:03:38 EST Spring and summer fashion Are you looking at the new spring and summer dresses? Sleeveless tops and shorts? Tanks and new jeans?

Fri, 29 Apr 2011 12:08:19 EST Ok, major tank tops score at Coldwater Creek I went to the mall to shop for capris (it's already summer-hot here). I couldn't find a thing. I was about to get in my car, and saw a store I never go in: Coldwater Creek. I thought 'what the hey' and walked over. <BR> My gosh, I was in tank top heaven. Here is what I bought: <BR> <BR> <link><BR>l/52698/58823/cotton-tiered-shell.aspx<BR>?colorid=A53&refLink=womens.aspx </link> got it in pink and in purple. <BR> <BR> <link> Tue, 26 Apr 2011 09:45:02 EST Your last purchase?

Tue, 12 Apr 2011 18:24:32 EST Favorite Stores So where do you guys enjoy shopping? <BR> <BR> <BR> I really like finding good deals and Marshall's and Ross.
