This Week in Chic

Posted:

04/12/2014

Good morning Model Citizens! I hope your week has been fabulous and fashionable thus far! This Week In Chic, I did a review of the American Country Music Awards. I have to tell you, watching the show, I found myself really missing the "old" country music! I mean, I love some of the new stuff with Jason Aldean (and his cute self) and Lady Antebellum, but country music used to be all about the stories. There really aren't many stories in country songs anymore. Do you remember the song "The Time The Lights Went Out in Georgia" by Reba McEntire? That song was EVERYTHING! Le sigh. Anyway, for my fashion review of what was hot and what hit a sour note, check out the video above! Also, I wanna remind you fabulous folks that I am always here to listen to your comments and ideas, so Facebook me, email me, leave comments for me....whatevs! I love hearing from you guys!

And now, for the look of the day!!! :-) Let me just tell y'all something about this little black dress: it is sexxxxxxaaaaay! I love how it hugs and clings to everything that I want to show and falls away from all my " imperfections". It's very classic and feminine and doesn't show too much. I felt like a true super star in it! The dress is perfect for a night out on the town and is sure to illicit some "double takes" from admirers! #werk! You can also find this dress at Gwynnie Bee, I put the link below! Don't forget that your first month is free if you decide to try them out! My necklace is from The Limited at Hickory Point Mall and looked spectacular against the black dress! Thanks so much for visiting and I'll see ya next week!

 

Dress: London Times from Gwynnie Bee

Necklace: The Limited at Hickory Point Mall

Good morning Model Citizens! This morning, my segment was about a young lady named Charlie Hestor who makes the cutest and most unique purses I've seen! She not only designs bags, but a slew of other articles of clothing as well as household items! You can find her on pinterest if you just enter her name in the search engine. She also has an awesome website that's chock full of giggles and insightful entries! It's called A Little Off Color. Check out the segment above! Now on to my outfit....

I absolutely LOVE this dress! You can find it here: Cherry Velvet Plus

Now before you give me major side eye, I must tell you that you can borrow the dress for a fraction of the cost on Gwynnie Bee! Gwynnie Bee is a fabulous online clothes rental service for women between the sizes 10 and 32. I am a size 10 and have no intention of buying anything until I'm back to my pre baby 8 :-). Anyway, they're dress selection is BANANAS, and your 1st month is FREE. Check them out here: Gwynnie Bee.

Good Morning Model Citizens! Spring is here, and though the weather isn't quite what we need it to be for us to bust out those satrapy sandals and chic sun dresses, It's definitely time to start getting ready! Last week, I visited a super chic, super trendy boutique in downtown Bloomington called Gigi Bottega that had the makings of everything beautiful in fashion. The clothes and accessories are GORGE and the prices are super reasonable for the "boutique" type experience that you're getting! Gigi Bottega owner Gina and I took a look at some key pieces that are going to be on trend this year. If you didn't catch my segment this morning, you can watch it above!

Now on to my look of the day. In honor of my first post in this spring 2014 season, I am giving y'all a throwback from 2012!

This is one of my favorite spring dresses. It's old, but it's held up well. It's super light and moves beautifully!

 

Dress: Asos

Keep in mind though, there are even more gowns in the store at Hickory Point Mall than they have on the website...just sayin'...

Hey hey Model Citizens! Today's segment was about a fabulous line of purses called Miche! I loved how versatile they are and that they are "pack-friendly". If you haven't done so yet, please feel free to take a look at the segment that I did with Ms. Hefely this morning! The bags are super cute, priced reasonably and very VERY economical when you think of all you can do with one bag, a few shells and a couple of straps! To see more bags, you can visit Ms.Hefley's page here: https://rebeccahefley.miche.com/Home.

Now, next is a new thing that I'm gonna call my "Outfit Of The Day/Week" post or my "OOTD/W". If you're ever curious about what I'm wearing, from my Necklace, to my earrings, from my dress, to my shoes, you can find out where I got my outfit from, right here!

Howdy Model Citizens! The Grammy's were a huge let down for me. It's almost like everyone wanted to out-do each other on who could wear the most ridiculous thing possible! Some of the outfits were just laughable! 

Ms. Cyndi Lauper looked like she could be one of the Witches of Eastwick....


New comer Ariana Grande wore floral print in abundance AND white stocking! NO MA'AM.

5'2 Comedian Kevin Hart was not "short" on fashion at the Grammy's! So what I did there? I made a funny...

 

Amber Rose, made famous for being arm candy, did not miss the mark. She looked stunning!

Good morning Model Citizens! Winter can wreck havoc on our skin, leaving us dry, chaffed, and overall itchy! Fortunately, there are plenty of products out there that can address these very issues!

Clinique Three Step is an individualized skin care system that addresses skin issues for skin types ranging from dry, to combination, to oily! The three step system consists of a cleanser, an exfoliator, and a moisturizer. The start up isn't cheap (about 60 bucks), but it lasts a long time, works extremely well, and you probably will never have to spend that kind of cash again, as the products are unlikely to all run out at the same time. You can find Clinique three step if you click on the photo above. If you'd like to go in and try the products for yourself, visit Von Maur, or Bergener's, and tell them Taneica from WAND sent ya!


I have extremely dry skin during the winter, so I like to add an extra layer of moisture and protection with Clinique Moisture Surge. With temperatures in the single digits, folks like me, with extremely dry skin, need to have whatever moisture we put on our faces locked in, until we wash our faces! Moisture surge is SO WONDERFUL for dry skin. It's like dunking your face into a beauty smoothie! Seriously.

One more thing I should mention about Clinique is that their products are hypoallergenic, so that are perfect for folks with sensitive skin.


Another essential for the winter months is face masks! I use Oatafix from Lush Cosmetics. It's loaded with bananas, almonds, oats, and vanilla extract. Y'all, this stuff smells incredible (like oatmeal cookie dough to be exact)! I've made the mistake of falling asleep with the mask on my face, only to have my dog help himself to it. I bet he thought I was NUTS for putting food on my face! lol! Anyway, the good news is, this stuff is amazing. The bad news is, since it's made fresh and refrigerated, you have to go in store purchase it. The closest Lush Cosmetics to us is in Chicago....sigh. I'm a fan of Chicago, so when I visit, I just stock up, and free the pots of Oatafix that aren't in use yet! If you ever find a Lush store, go in and buy you a face mask! You'll love it, and so will your face!


For tired, dry skin, another mask from Lush worth trying is The Sacred Truth. Made with papaya, wheat grass, and green tea, not only will this face mask moisturize your skin, but it will wake you up too! This one is also a store only product.

Anyway, that's it for This Week In Chic! Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit my Facebook page here! Stay tuned for next week's antics, as I will be reviewing the highs and lows of the Grammy Awards...oy vey! Lol! Have a fabulous rest of your week, and until next time, may the fierce be with you!

Good Morning Model Citizens! The Golden Globes kicked off what's looking to be a faaaaaaaabulous award ceremony season. Sunday's array of designer gowns, flawless make up and gorgeous shoes did not disappoint in the least! Next award show will be the Grammy's, and that show is set to air on the 26th of this month (January), I'm not ready....lol! Anyway, time restraints kept me from mentioning 3 actresses whose outfits affected me for the better AND worse...check them out!

 

Julia underwhelmed me in this gown. She looks like she should be waiting tables, not attending a fancy award show!

I didn't want to call her out on air, but J. Law was a disappointment in this get-up. The core of the dress is nice, but the execution of the ribbons is a sore lose in my opinion. She looks like a paper towel tube wrapped in ribbons. lol


I actually liked Sandra's dress! It was not as dressy as I would've liked, but it appreciate the color blocking.

Well Model Citizens, that's it for This Week In Chic! Send me your ideas, comments, and concerns!Have a fashionable rest of your week!

Good morning Model Citizens!

I hope you had a beautiful Christmas day and got to enjoy your family and friends! Before you kick off your celebratory shoes, we have one more big holiday to celebrate before we close out 2013! With New Years eve on our heels, it's time to glam up! An excellent way to get the party started in a beautiful way is with Curlformers! I'm a fan of Curlformers and have been using them for a couple of years now. They're my go to product when I need to switch things up a bit or want more defined curls. Since my hair is very thick and coarse, it's very difficult to find curling tools like this that can actually curl my hair. One of the best things about this product is that it works on several different hair types. There's Curlformers in different lengths and widths so that you can get elongated, spiral curls, for different hair lengths! The downside to Curlformers is that they are time consuming to install, and uncomfortable to sleep in. But if you can turn on an episode of Grimm or Wheel of Fortune while you're putting them in, it will go fairly quickly. I've found that pulling the Curlformers down the length of my hair a bit so that my hair is not being tugged on helps a ton, helping me sleep a little better.  Other than those two points of contention, Curlformers are sturdy, reusable, give defined curls, and don't require any heat whatsoever. If you'd like to give them a try, you can find them at Sally's for $13.99. I also found them on Amazon, starting at 12.99. Sold separately, unless you get the kit, the wand doesn't cost more than $5.00.
