Colored Pants

First came the red lips… now RED PANTS! Colored pants are everywhere! Mint, sky blue, violet, yellow, burnt orange, coral – all of these colors are not only acceptable bottoms but stylish ones as well!

They’re best when paired with a neutral top and neutral shoes. But if you’d like to add a little more flair then complimentary colored tops will work. If ever you don’t know what to pair them with – accessorize! An armful of bangles, long chain necklaces or a fedora would do. Oh and colored shorts are wicked too.

After all, it is almost summertime…

I walked away with two important accessories for summer from Sunday’s Lilac Festival; a sunburn (but soon to be tan) and these lovely earrings.

We saw quite a few variations of the feathered earring on display, but these really caught my eye. You can pick these up and other feathered accessories through Karly Thompson of She’s So boutique by visiting her facebook page at: http://www.facebook.com/ShesSo

Hot Lips

Lips are meant to be accentuated! Simply slap on some lip colour to highlight your best natural accessory – your lips! Various hues of lip color can be used to create the perfect, classic look and make you feel ultra-chic. There are quite a few brands to choose from to achieve this bold, mysterious look. Here are a few of my faves…

The “Just Bitten” line by Revlon works wonders in creating a lasting lip color. Lip stains create a matte finish but require fewer touch-ups resulting in a defined, dark look that is easy to maintain.

Want to create a luscious, glossy look? The “Lipglass” collection by MAC is the best way to do this! They have an abundance of bright, rich hues to choose from. My personal favourite is called “pink poodle”. Want to plump up your pucker while adding a tint of color? I suggest the “Plushglass” collection by MAC to get that bee-stung look sans botox.

Whether you decide to go with a deep blood red, a bright cherry hue or a passionate purple tinge, lip color should be treated as an accessory. A way to accentuate even the simplest of outfits. A bold lip color combined with subtle eyes creates a timeless look that personifies beauty.

So paint on a little rouge to draw some attention to those HOT LIPS of yours!

Vintage Florals

Floral is the best vintage throwback that has happened to fashion in a long time! It allows us to revel in our most feminine side with patterns that are reminiscent of our grandmother’s youth. Sure, it may make you feel like a 1950s housewife but I kind of like it. An even better twist on faded floral? Pair it with a dark leather jacket or blazer to create a mysterious and intriguing allure.

Contrastingly, dark florals provide a bold statement. One that is both girly and edgy. Definitely something I can get on board with.

If you aren’t into donning blossom-covered fabrics, try something simpler… accessorize! Bangles and studs are two of the easiest ways to add a little flair to any neutral outfit.

Vintage is fabulous! And there is nothing wrong with feeling a little girly.
