Red - Are You Bold Enough to Wear It?

Neiman Marcus

Not for the timid. You need the right attitude to rock red! If you need to repeat some Sasha Fierce affirmations in front of the miroor then go for it!

In polite society, there are some times when wearing red CLOTHING is generally considered socially unacceptable.

Some think no rules apply to fashion. Once considered a ghastly faux pas,
wearing red with pink or burgandy is now acceptable in some circles.
Harajuku anyone?

When wearing red lipstick, you may want to keep the following in mind:

1. EASY DOES IT - Go easy on the eyes wearing minimal eye make-up. Use a light hand if you choose to wear blush. Otherwise you run the risk of looking like a clown. Poor Cameron Diaz was lambasted by the fashion community for this look she rocked at the 2007 Globe Awards.

2. BEST SHADE - Find the best shade for your complexion

(fair) PINK = plum shades, crimson, cherry
(medium)YELLOW = warmer reds with a brown base base
(medium deep)OLIVE = terra cotta, rust, maroon and cinnamon, brick
(medium dark)with YELLOW Undertones = spicy reds that feature an orange base
(deep dark)with BLUE Undertones = sangria, pomegranate, brick

3. STACK - Red lipstick tends to bleed, so line INSIDE your lips & then fill in lips with lip liner. Match your lipstick liner to your lipstick for a perfect line. Unless of course you're going for the Chola effect.

4. BLEND & BLOT - If you use more than one shade of red make sure you blend! Use a lip brush for more precise application. Remember to blot your lipstick to remove excess product. I use endpapers to blot mine.

5. GLOSS? - Generally Red Lips make enough of a statement.
If, however, you cannot live without gloss, consider clear or sheer red tones.

6. NAILS - french manicure, clear, or black polish is very flattering. If you DO opt to wear red nail polish, make sure it matches your lipstick.You don't want to clash.

Feminine Ruffles & Beautiful Blouses Fall Trend

I have not seen ruffled blouses since the early 1980's. It's refreshing to see a return to romance. I love all things girly. It should come as no surprize that I'm thrilled to see the ruffles & soft feminine blouses on the runway for fall looks.

Korto Momolu


I was so proud of Korto on season 5 of Project Runway.
Apparently producers found her talented enough to include her
in the Project Runway All Star Challenge.
Both times she made it to the final two contestants.
I feel like she was ROBBED!
She celebrates the female form in a way that is quite flattering.
Korto is exposing the world to vivid color with her African inspired designs.
I'd love to buy some of her clothes.

Plaid, Can You Pull It Off?

Baby Phat (plus size)

I haven't seen plaid in style since the late 1980's - early 1990's.
"LUMBERJACK jacket with the hat to match" anyone?

Plaid is traditionally seen as a strong menswear pattern.
You may be able to rock this pattern with a few feminine tweaks.

PLAID = any fabric woven of differently colored yarns in a crossbarred pattern.

Bold patterns can be a bit overwhelming for me.
A solid wide belt to cinch the waist feminizes the lumberjack effect.


For even more feminine appeal, consider a sheer flowy fabric like silk.

faith21 (plus size)

Look for tailored woven tops to flatter your figure.
Baby Phat


Consider a CRISP white blouse or a solid turtleneck with a patterned skirt.


If you are not confident or bold enough to get in on this trend by wearing a shirt/blouse. Why not consider wearing solids with just a couple of plaid accessories.





Remember to ask yourself, "Am I wearing this outfit, or is it wearing me?"
You don't want to come off cartoonish or costumey.

- Keep it simple.
