Sassy Summer Style
Just got back from a fun and fabulously rejuvenating girls' get-away weekend—which, by the way, I was in desperate need of and didn't even know! Girly and Pilar recognized my symptoms, e.g. tendency to read online celeb/fashion magazines at work without bothering to open a this-is-just-research smoke screen browser (admit to interest-bordering-on-obsession with Angelina Jolie and her fashion evolution—am also wondering about the size of that lower belly tattoo right about now); penchant for spending the weekend in yoga/dance togs with no intention whatsoever of actually doing yoga or dance (they're sooo comfy though and the wrap-front makes it look like I actually have a waist!); inability to focus on either correct seasonal mani/pedi color selection or correct seasonal depilatory options (ended up looking like Brazilian hooker without the Brazilian).
Anyhoo, the girls whisked me away to the City of Lights, which I always thought was Paris, but apparently I was wrong and it is, in fact, Las Vegas. Shop Girl even flew in for the weekend on the premise of spending quality time with me, but really it was to perform a fashion intervention—I had recently taken to wearing skyscrapers with capri's, which Shop Girl proclaimed "too Rizzo for words!" before snatching them from my feet and replacing them with more chic and fashionable wedge espadrilles. (Shop Girl's advice: Slides and mules are just fine for an elegant touch to a pair of classy linen or silk capri's, but keep them mid-heel height; anything higher than 3" positively screams "White Trash!" as do pumps.) But I digress.
As girl's weekends go, this one rated a solid 10 out of 10. Not only did the weather cooperate fully but there was so much to do! The entertainment, the shows, the food, the night life! But, as they say, "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" and they are totally serious—you even have to sign a document! Or maybe that was the hotel bill. Again I digress. And the shopping! Girls, let me tell you Las Vegas has anything and everything your little heart desires! From main line designers to oodles of outlet stores, we girly girls were in a veritable paradise! We stopped by Victoria's Secret Beauty to check out my very own über-chic note cards, and gift cards which are being featured there. (Loved seeing my handiwork on display!) And since it was full-fledged-hovering-in-the-90's-summer weather in Vegas, we took advantage of the opportunity to snap up a few items that no girl should be without this summer:
- Swishy skirt. Perfect for catching a cooling breeze on a hot summer day.
- White eyelet. One of the season's hottest trends. Sundresses and halter dresses, girly skirts, prissy blouses, sexy cami's, and even handbags get in on the action.
- Lightweight cotton dress . Flirty with flats during the day, paired with sexy heels and chic sparkles for the evening.
- Capri's. So many choices! If I had to choose just one pair, I would go with a classic khaki cotton. Looks great with a crisp white blouse, preppy polo or cardi for cool evenings.
- Must-have summer tunic top, which will look great with a pair of skinny jeans and can double as a swimsuit cover. (Bonus points for eco-friendliness; She She girls use code SheSheMe for 20% off and free shipping on any product from Coco's Shoppe!)
- Fun accessories. I found these oh-so-unique earrings made from vintage vinyl records.
- A truly kick-asterisk straw bag. Ever since my obsession with handbags began (around age 5) I have kicked off my summer with the purchase of a great straw bag. Whether a beach tote or a girly mini , a lady-like shopper or a funky satchel, a straw handbag always says "summer" to me!
I feel completely refreshed, renewed and revitalized. Ready to tackle just about anything, including dealing with the fact that it is now season finale time (will Jack Bauer get to knock President Logan into the middle of next week? What is it that everyone on Lost is staring at out to sea? And just how desperate are those housewives going to get?) Not to mention the big ta-da for American Idol. My prediction is Taylor Hicks (if he doesn't burst a lung while bustin' those moves)—but then again, I also wagered on Clay Aiken, who, incidentally, has way outstripped Idol winner Ruben. As a girl who has a hard time with choices, all I can say is "TGI TiVo!"
