Good to Be Back

Hello my fellow Fashion Obsessed friends,

I have to sincerely apologize for my unexpected and very long absence.  When I decided to take a break from blogging I never expected to be gone for six months.  I had so  much going on that I needed a break.  But there was one good thing that came out of me taking a step back from blogging; I was able to rethink the direction that I wanted to take my blog.  Although I am still obsessed with fashion and beauty; I have so many other hobbies and interests that I want to incorporate into my blog in the future.  I plan to turn this blog into more of a lifestyle blog from now on so that I can include all aspects of my interests.  I also have a new editorial plan, so be on the look out for a post from me on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.  I also plan to do my very first giveaway really soon, so be on the look out for that also.  Thank you to all of you who decided to stick by me in my absence.  Be on the look out for a new posts starting tomorrow.

Reduce the Stretch

Stretch marks can occur during sudden changes in body size, such as during pregnancy, puberty, or rapid weight-gain. For those who have strectch marks it can feel like a curse; they can cause embarrassment of wearing particular clothing items for fear that someone will comment on their stretch marks.  They can occur anywhere on the body from stomach, arms, hips, breast and thighs. I have had to deal with them since puberty.  For a long time I was embarrasses by my stretch marks, but then I realized that many women (thin and thick) had them too.  Even though they are nothing to be ashamed of I know many people would love to know how to make them less noticeable. 

Here are a few tips and tricks for making your stretch marks less noticable:

<span style="font-size: medium;">

1. Exfoliate your skin on the regular basis</span>
<span style="font-size: medium;">

2. Dry brush skin about once a week before your shower</span>
<span style="font-size: medium;">

3. Use natural oils and butters on the daily basis, such as shea butter and coconut butter</span>
<span style="font-size: medium;">

4. Try topical creams and treatments like Palmers Coconut oil treatment</span>

And just remember as with anything in life, consistency is key.  Reduction won't happen over night so stick to it.  And in the meantime love your body just the way it is

<span style="font-size: medium;">One of my favorite things for the spring and summer is all the white every where.  Even though I don't personally wear white jeans, i love the look of them.  White jeans can look good in any situation it just all depends on how you style them.  They can be worn anywhere from the office to the club. Here are a few cute ways to style your white jeans this season:

Plaid shirt and wedges: this is a cute everyday look for having lunch with the girls or doing a little shopping.


Plain white tee and sneakers: this look is great for a casual day.


Chambray top and sandals:this is a great everyday look.


Kimono and Birkenstock:cute boho chic look for going to a music festival.


White blazer and heels:this would be great to wear to work on a casual Friday or those who work in the creative field.


Striped tee and classic flats:this is a great look for those who love the preppy look.  Wear this to a clam bake or day out on the boat.

Bucket List

I am currently obsessed with bucket bags; so now I am on the lookout for the perfect one. For me the perfect bucket bag is leather or faux leather, versatile (can be dressed up or down), a neutral color, and less than $150. So far I have picked three favorites. I am still trying to figure out which one to buy.

Both of these are Vince Camuto

This one is Kenneth Cole

Which one do you like best?

10 Rules to Break

The best thing about having your own style is that you get to make your own rules. We have all heard the quote, "trends come and go, but style lasts forever.". A true fashionista has her own style; her own way of interpreting the current trends. Having your own style means breaking those old rules that our mothers used to live by.  Rules are made to be broken.  Here are 10 fashion and beauty rules that we all should break...

1. Don't wear white after Labor Day:

This is one of the oldest and most outdated <span style="font-size: large;">rules. So many of us used to put away our favorite white clothes as soon as the first Monday in September came, but now we keep those pristine whites right beside our sweaters and dark colors.  We rock our white clothes all year; everything from our white jeans down to our favorite little white dresses.

2. Don't play up your eyes and lips at the same time:

3. Don't wear brown with black:

4. Don't mix your metals:

5. Don't wear sequins during the day:

6. Don't wear a short dress or pants to a black tie/formal event:

7. Don't wear denim with denim:

8. Don't wear the same color from head to toe:

9. Don't mix prints or patterns:

10. Don't wear black tights with white shoes; don't white tights with black shoes:

Graduation Style

It is that time of year again; millions of young people are about to leave the comfort of their parents houses, dorm rooms, late night study sessions and daily routines for the uncertainty of the real world. Graduation us full of mixed emotions from excitement to fear of what's to come.

Coming up with a great outfit for the big day can lead to a bit of uncertainty as well. Some schools have serious dress codes, especially high schools and some are a bit more relaxed. A great rule of thumb is to dress a little more formally than your normal way of dressing. You don't have to dress like you are going to prom, but don't dress like you're going to class either. Also make sure you are comfortable in what you are wearing and you can walk in your shoes without fear of tripping. For my graduation we had to dress in all white. This is a little easier for the guys; a nice button down and slacks is all you need. But for the ladies this can be a tough decision.

Here are a few looks for your inspiration. Some are more casual for those who are not into dresses. These will look good for those graduating or the guests of a graduate. They can also be worn to all those graduation parties you are sure to attend.
