Top 10 Glamour Dos & Don'ts

What is better than a good ole magazine while flying??

Well, Lexi is starting to get to the age where I can finally pick one up again! I even was able to read it this time! I have come to figure out that an hour flight is much more manageable than a 4 hour flight with a 2 year old!! It makes a world of a difference and it made flying much less dreadful!!

There was an article in GLAMOUR Magazine {Septembers Edition} that hit it right on!

Rachel Zoe shared her ultimate fashion Dos & Don'ts:
I'll share the ones I whole-heartedly agreed with below!

trend lightly on trends.
You have to interpret what's hot to make it work on yourself. The idea is that you wear it the way that becomes the most you. For example, skinny jeans couldn't be more in style, but they make my legs look really short, so I only do them with high heels.

wear pants the wrong length.
Something that's very painful for me is when people wear pants that are too short. I can't, you know what I mean? Here's the rule: Unless they're cropped to ankle length on purpose (like skinnies), your pants should always skim the ground, like just a quarter-inch above the bottom of your foot. In the luxurious life, we would have different pairs of the same style hemmed for heels and hemmed for flats, but most of us don't so you have to choose. If you're going to make the commitment to wear heels, your pants have to skim the ground. Please just commit. I can't bear too-short pants. They make me crazy!

mix hardware.
Let's say your bag has silver metal, but your jacket and your belt and your shoes have gold.
No. I don't love mixing.

go for "pops"
Accents of color always brighten you up, whether they're from a trim, a bag, a shoe, jewelery, a hat, or a whole article of clothing. If you have on a pair of black trousers, and you do a great printed shirt with some beautiful floral print or a bold red color, your whole face can really come alive. The same goes for animal prints or sequins and glitz. But I call it a pop because you should only wear one piece like that at a time. I've seen more women in allover looks, and I'm sorry, but you just can't. Pick one.

copy people.
Take someone in the public eye whose style you admire or whose body you think yours is most similar to, see what they do, and try to emulate it. It's not bad to copy a celebrity- that's what they're there for!

get discouraged by a limited budget.
Listen, some of the people I know with the smallest spending accounts have the biggest style. They key is creativity in mixing and matching what you wear. Even the girls with Balenciaga bags or Lanvin flats pair them with H&M, Anthropologie, and Topshop. At this point fashion is so accessible, it's easy to be on trend for very little money.
