Fashion Must Haves
You will be surprised how many looks you can get from having these simple, "must haves" in your closet.
White blouse. A white blouse never will give you many different looks. You'll never run out of ways to include it into your wardrobe.
Black pants. Best way to dress up any shirt. Be sure to pick a versatile fabric for all seasons.
Black tank top. Wear it by itself during the day and throw a jacket or cardigan over it to dress it up for evening.
Jeans. Lifesavers for sure! Blue and black will get you through all seasons.
Little black dress. You may say it's soooo cliche, but I feel every woman looks awesome in her little black dress. It's slimming and sexy.
Pencil skirt. This classic skirt looks best two inches above the knee. You can rock it for a day out with the girls or wear it to future business interviews.
Cardigan sweater. Perfect for the transition from summer to fall. Put a cardigan over a simple tank top and get a whole new look.
Black high heels. Black goes with all, most versatile. Great way to show off those sexy legs of yours, but don't go too high with the heel....you will look like a goofball stumbling around.

The eyes have it!
Tuesday- May 20th
Do you want your eyes to "pop?" Try false eyelashes. You can create thick, lush lashes for under $10.
I normally use Ardell Lashes from King Soopers, you can pick them up on sale for under $3 or a package with the glue for under $8.
The eyes have it!
Use a eyeliner to cover your lash roots. I use black liquid eyeliner.
squeeze a drop of glue on a surface.
Use scissors to trim eyelashes, so they are not too long and look natural.
Dip the lash root in the glue.
Place the false eyelash on your eyelash roots.
Use the end of the glue tube to press the false eyelash along your eyelid.
Qtip also works well.
Add another layer of eyeliner and eye makeup.
To remove, use eye makeup remover with oily base.

I'm sure you have already heard about the Ombre hairstyle that is all the rage now, but have you heard about Ombre' nails? It's a type of manicure that starts with a light color on the bottom and blends into a much darker color towards the tip of you nails.
I found this great website to show you step by step how to do Ombre manicure at home. Enjoy!
Kentucky Derby kicked off this weekend and YES, it's also about the fashion….especially the hat ladies! When looking for a hat, anything goes! It's all about your personality. I found this adorable, pink hat at Mariel here in Denver. The owner, Denise Snyder, always encourages her customers to step out of their comfort zone and try something unexpected. She also said, "Add the smokey eye look with false eyelashes to really get attention."
Traditional big brim hats are always in style, but some go for the popular Kate Middleton look. She has charmed millions of fans with her detailed pieces that are much smaller. Of course you can always go for the over the top fascinator, like her cousins did at her wedding a few years ago.
It's hard to put a price on fashion and style, some are willing to spend hundreds for that perfect statement hat. Last year, women's hats had a 16% increase in sales. Store owners worldwide banked $300 million in retail.
