So American Idol is on tonight. YAY!!! Here are my ratings of the finalists

Syesha Mercado- Mediocre...I don't really like her, because she is forgettable. All my buddies feel the same!
David Archeluta-I watched him on star search....I was about 10 then, so I can't really remember, but oh well. He has a huge posse of teenage girls watching him and loving him-BUT I HATE HIM!!!
David Cook-Had poserish hair, and is too much like Chris Daughtry
Jason Castro-He is quirky, and pretty good at singing-I like him
Brooke White-I saved the best for last-She has cute clothes, is very sunny, and can really sing!!!

My fav is Brooke, then Jason.

Grrrrr and WELCOME TO THE 60s!

AH!! I have been away and have had like no time to blog. :(

Anyway, I decided to do my 1960s fashion dressing now!

So lets start!

-The 60s were and era of change. Women made fashion history by beginning the trend of wearing pants. Jeans were in, and most skirts were OUT.

-Skirts were SUPER short (aka micro mini).

-Think geometric for hairstyles, as well as the beehive, and plenty of straightening.

-Bell bottoms were a trademark of the 60s.

-Wear peace necklaces, boho skirts, and lots of scarves for a hippie inspired look.

-Throw on some kitten heels and begin to feel oh so very 60s!

-There were also a lot of tank turtlenecks, although unless they are the real deal, these have a lot of potential to look TACKY!

-Think of Jackie Kennedy and Mary Quant for inspiration.

-Pillbox hats and big sunglasses were huge in the 60s

Oh, and the Beatles formed in 1964. Man do I wish I lived then. I could have had an authentic Beatles shirt, and seen them in concert...sigh!

So go now...and DRESS UP!!!!

Anything Goes?

This weekend the fam and I went the hs production of Anything Goes. The outfits reminded me that I MUST MUST MUST begin my decade dress posting. Thats right....from the 50s to the 80s I will search the internet for clothes, style, and most importantly, fashion!

First things first...50s!

-Think dresses, high waisted skirts, polka dots, and curly hair

-Look at the lady in the picture!!!! She has splendiforous gloves that I wish I had!!!

-Wear some white tights just like Alice in Wonderland!
-Saddle shoes were big in the 50s...try some on and skip down the street.
-If you need to carry some books, why not use a satchel?
-As for make-up, thick liquid eyeliner, red lipstick, and false eyelashes will do!

-Channel Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren, and Audrey Hepburn for a fifties look!
-Wear cardigans with full skirts.
-Brooches, costume beads, and corsages complete the 50s look!
NOW GO...search through your closets for the perfect 50s outfit!!

The Joys of Thrifting

This weekend I went thrifting for the first time in a while, and picked up two great items. The first was a wonderful Delia*s skirt for only $5. The second.....DRUMROLL PLEASE.....was a pair of rubber ESPRIT (!!!!!) shoes. Ok, rubber sounds kinda bad, but they are EXTREMELY AMAZING!!! And Esprit....who knew one could find a pair thrifting here, where Abercrombie is the choice among most. (GAG ME!)
