Dressing Up Feels Good…:))

Every time we head out the door, there are great possibilities of what we could wear before we step out to the public…it’s all up to you, that is:)

For the past years since officially my senior year of high school, I have made an effort to dress up everyday unless I am very sick.

Dressing up has given me more confidence in my everyday life. I don’t have to shy away from things because I look like crap. I am ready for anything pretty much, except for super professional events. Though dressing up is a BIG satisfaction. Pretty much the saying of, “When you look great, you feel great”, it is really true.

The first thing when someone approaches you is that they notice what you are wearing, that is also the first impression of you. How you dress is how people respect you. In my book, that is pretty important. Going through life of people not respecting you is honestly very hard. Clothing doesn’t have to be ultra expensive to achieve the feeling of feeling good. Clothing that comes from Marshalls or TJ Maxx are great places for stylish fashion for cheap prices, don’t you agree?

On the days that I’m ill… dressing down, I always try to be as professional about it as much as possible, therefore I try to avoid the baggy sweatpants. I feel it’s best to stick with yoga pants because this way it is still very clean cut, nothing sloppy. And another plus is that it makes your butt look good ;).

I know dressing up everyday isn’t an easy task to achieve, I seriously truly understand. But something that helps is picking it out the outfit the night before so your not in a huge rush when you are trying to look good for the day in the morning…plus, you have a lot more time! Something that I do is that I consistently follow fashion bloggers to see what they are wearing and do something similar.

Do you feel its hard to make an effort to dress up everyday? When you do dress up, how are you feeling? Do you believe Marshalls and TJ Maxx have good stylish clothing?

Today’s post is rather different compared to the others. Every time I go shopping, this always comes across my mind… the more expensive clothing or the cheaper clothing?

Clothing at Express is just as stylish as clothing at Forever21, however there is a HUGE price difference. At Forever21, I am able to get a sweater for about an average of $20-$25 full price, but at Express a sweater can easily range from $60-$100.

But, regardless of how expensive a sweater at Express would cost, I still would much rather pay that price than purchase a couple of cheap sweaters. Why? Clothing at Express is all about quality. Yes, I have to agree that the price is high, but Express is ABSOLUTELY great with coupons, they are always marking the prices down for people. On the other hand, Forever21 NEVER sends out coupons, and if something goes on sale, it’s always the crappier clothing that no one really wants.

Something from Express can last me about five years vs. something at Forever21 can only last me about couple washes. I understand college students and many of those stores demographics might not be the richest crowd, but saving the doe for something pricer because of the quality is a lot smarter of an idea than consistently throwing clothing out…because all the Forever21 clothing that gets thrown out eventually adds up and is pricer than the one piece of clothing from an more expensive store.

Clothing at expensive stores lasts much longer, with much higher quality, and many times, the design is very different and unique. And best off, you can put it through the wash as many times as possible and it still will last.

Clothing at cheaper stores…don’t do as well in quality, material, design, etc. Designs are much more simpler, therefore you would see it on a lot more people. Quality is very cheap, therefore it falls apart very easily. And the material is cheap because it can catch stains very easily.

How do you feel about my outlook on expensive vs. cheaper clothing? What is your outlook on more expensive clothing/cheaper clothing?

I am totally IN love with Michael Kors new Jewelry collection. It is totally Chic, and best off it’s very inexpensive! Michael Kors has never came out with jewelry before for his collection, so I feel he did a very good job on the styles that he chose for his first time.

His styles of the rings and bracelets are my favorite because they are very different from the other rings and bracelets. It is so much more edgy and different. On one of his rings, there is a design of a buckle on it, is there anything like that out there?

Anyways, how do you feel about his collection of jewelry? Are you loving it?

Please visit Michael Kors for more of his pieces.

Here are a few of my favorite pieces:

It seems that the “IT” color for this coming winter season is RED. I feel that’s not an easy color to keep up with, because to start out with, not everyone has the nerves to wear Red. Well, this year’s fashion for Red clothing is actually quite stylish. It’s nothing that would make someone think more of you, however, it’s still not settled. Red tends to stick out a bit more than other colors, so regardless what the fashion is, it is still a “Show Stopper” color.

In my opinion, Red definitely represents sex appeal, DARING, sharp, sophistication, and anything that gets your adrenaline going when you think/see Red 😉

Last year’s “IT” color was purple. I wasn’t very crazy about it, but then I’m the type of person who doesn’t like all that good in purple.

A specific website that is really rocking Red is Express, and some fashion bloggers.

Did you like last year’s color, Purple?

What are your feelings on this year’s “IT” color, Red?

Cross-Body Bags

VS.

Every time I leave the house for whatever reason, more and more I notice that girls like to carry cross body bags. And many time these bags are small bags compared to the large bags that we were used to. It looks like over the years, we are getting more and more simple, and that affects what we carry as well. A good example is that, we used to get magazines mailed to us, but because of tablets, we can subscribe to a magazine company and have it updated on to our tablet.

There are definitely pros and cons to small and large bags. We are able to carry everything that we would like to carry with us in a large bag, versus a small bag we must pick and choose what we carry with us.

Cross body bags are becoming more and more fashionable, which bag do you still prefer?

Places Where You Can Find Cross Body Bags

In the past few years, fur coats were looked highly down upon. It could be because when we think of fur coats, we think of real animal fur, however that is no longer true. In this generation, the fur coat is starting to come back into the fashion trend. Fur coats are no longer made from real animal fur, it is now fake. Though in this generation, we do not even spell the word fake, as “fake”, we write it as “faux”.

Fur coats came back into fashion about two years ago, but fashion generally takes about two to five years for the public to understand it after fashion models has enforced it. Many stores this year are enforcing it, perhaps we will see more people wearing fur vests or coasts this coming winter.
