I will admit that being fashionable was much easier before I had kids. I now have a baby belly that I spend lots of time trying to hide. I swear after I give birth to number 2 in a few weeks it will be gone for good. But it is so hard! Anyways, a couple of my fashion secrets!
1. Make-up, Hair, and perfume ALWAYS make me feel better! I am all about some Make-up. I love Laura Mercier and MAC. I am all about a GOOD moisturizer, some foundation and bronzer, NARS blush, and Bobbi Brown's shimmer brick. I think drugstore mascara works even better than the expensive stuff. I am a big fan of Loreal Voluminous. I love Thierry Mugler's perfumes. Angel,Alien, and Angel Innocent are great. I am BIG fan of Viva La Juicy also.
2. Handbags.
MY WEAKNESS!!! I am constantly buying bags. Honestly, they just make me happy and the bigger they are, the skinnier I feel. Here is my dream list!
Louis Vuitton Alma

Chanel 3.31 Bag
Gucci Hysteria Crocodile. I would have to sell my child to buy this bag. It is a real dream and will never happen in this lifetime!!! But it is gorgeous!

3. Jewelry.
I LOVE costume jewelry and the real stuff, too. But the cheap stuff looks great to dress up an outfit!! Some of my favorite places are Banana Republic, Stein Mart, Francesca's, and For Love 21. Here are some pieces I bought from Love this week:

None of these pieces were over $10.00.
4. Bargain Shopping.
I am a huge fan of E-bay. You can find great deals on designer bags, shoes, and accessories. Occasionally I will buy a dress off of E-bay as well if I know how it fits or if it is a certain brand. You can save so much by clipping coupons out of InStyle magazine, On-line and mailing lists.
5. Gap, Inc.
I buy LOTS of my daughter's play clothes off of Baby Gap and Old navy and I am a huge fan of their website. It is easy to navigate through and also has VERY inexpensive shipping. Like $7.00 flat no matter how much you buy. I LOVE the fact that if you have a gift card for Old Navy, Banana, or Gap you can use all of them through the site. I hate Old Navy stores because they are such a mess. But online is perfect!!
Hope these fashion tips help!
