Advice from the Skinny Girl to the Big Girl.

Tags

, , ,

Yes, I’m a size zero, 5’4″ woman who has an opinion about my sisters at large. Please donate those under the bust dresses to pregnant women around the world. They scream “with child,” not “fertility goddess.” Bigger, smaller, bigger, is the eternal shape of femininity even if the bigger and smaller parts are served up as larger portions. Here are my top picks for my fellow women who occupy more of this world than I do.

OMG, a waist! If a tall handsome Italian man offers to buy you a cappuccino, tell him you'd prefer a latte. Enjoy!

Day Berger Et Mikkelsen Black Lace, After Dark Dress.

Roman goddess silhouette to be worn by big girls everywhere. OMG, a waist! Oh, just click already!

Don’t blame me if the skinny girls want to be in all the photos with you!

If this advice isn’t worthy of “freshly pressed” status then I don’t know what is! Please, leave me your comments.

Divine Summer Handbags!

Black Lace on Blush Leather

If you are like me then the handbag is an opportunity for a good dash of style done my way. It represents a chance for you to express a side of yourself that goes a little deeper. Take this handbag above by Valentino, for instance. The black lace on blush leather is just darling. It’s pretty, it’s coquettish and it’s evocative. A little naughty and a little nice.

If you want to take the excitement level up a notch, feast your eyes on this bronze pearlised python Miss Dior bag. Christian Dior is an icon of elegance and this bag lives up to the designer’s mark. East 57th Street in New York is one of the most exquisite Dior boutiques in the world where the bold “CD” plaque over the door invites you into a world of style and craftsmanship.

Now for the shot of colour!

Bottega Veneta brings us this satin knot clutch. Introduce a chic shot of colour into your wardrobe with Bottega Veneta’s hot-pink clutch. This satin piece perfectly showcases the label’s signature intrecciato technique – carry it with a neutral dress and heels to make it the focus of an elegant dinner date look. I bought this bag and I plan to wear it when I travel to Italy this summer. When I go on holiday I am in the mood for some grown up fun. This is the bag for the that. I bought the bag from one of my favourite sites. Click www.net-a-porter.com to see it.

Did you click? I told you it was gorgeous! If you do buy it and you also happen to be going to Italy in the summer time then please co-ordinate with me so that we don’t both show up on the Spanish Steps wearing the same bag one evening!

I hope you will give a little click on the “Like” button. I do so wish they had an “Adore” button!

What To Wear In Paris This Summer 2012

—Paris is a city where people watching is a national past-time and up to the minute fashion is de rigeur. Sit in a café sipping your latte and enjoy the sights of the young, the not so young, the sophisticated, the bold and the classic, as they pass you by. This is a place where beauty is not a formula and where women of all ages, shapes and types are adored.
 
Summer 2012 fashion in Paris is all about gorgeous, diaphanous fabrics that will have you floating down the avenues. Lace adorns everything from dresses, to handbags and even shoes. Colour blocks create bold, confident statements and feminine florals will have you feeling gorgeous.
 
Whenever I go to Paris in the summertime, I always make certain to bring my travel classics, my white pants, black dress, and tan skirts. Then it is all about the current mode and how to add that special dash of style.
 
When you are walking along the Seine, visiting La Musee D’orsay, or simply passing time at your favourite cafe, make sure to enjoy your look. Have fun and embrace your style. After all, what makes French women beautiful is more their self-love than their external appearance. Love yourself and love your clothing, and you may become one of the fashion watched!
 
One of my favourite accessories for the summer is the clutch handbag. What is more beautiful than an envelope of colour, or lace on black, clutched in hand. It is a true statement of elegance. Valentino, one of my favourite designers this year has perfected the clutch with colours that speak to your heart, in French of course.
 
My top pick for the week is this gorgeous clutch by Carlo Fellini. It is a steal for this much style. I love a good buy!
