The Most Stylish of the Most Stylish of 2014

Harper's Bazaar, which you probably know as my favorite magazine,  recently published "The Most Stylish of 2014." Now, I have a regular professional job. I'd hate to deceive you into thinking that I spend my time each day poring over fashion and gossip magazines looking for styles but I don't. I don't have enough time for all that unfortunately. However,  I feel obligated to share what I find attractive as I come across styles I LOVE in the magazines, websites, etc.

The article includes the likes of Amber Heard, Angelina Jolie, Beyonce and all the expected big names. Of all the picks, here are my faves. Most are ready to wear. 

I'm a sucker for Cameron Diaz and knowing that white is not always easy to pull off, I had to share this nicely done combination.  In all honesty (though), I love the purse more than the outfit.

Cara D. is stunning just about all the time. She looks delish in this photo. I love her poise in the photo. I wouldn't wear what she's wearing: I'm a bit cautious wearing outfits that expose front skin. Back exposure (literally the back) is more comfortable for me. LOL.

I believe in simple and great. So, Emma in this dress and those heels works for me.

I don't find the color of this dress flattering BUT it's stunning on Jen: the neckline is amazing. I like that she did not wear any jewelry. Just letting her face, lips, legs and body do the work!

Classy classy. See a trend here? White, black and white-black combos do the trick. ;) 

I'd kiss you if you got me this Kate Bosworth dress. :*

Sooooooooooooo... I got to number 60 and decided to take a breather. These are my best photos up to Most Stylish 60.

Have a lovely week!!

Colbie Caillat Doesn't Think You Should Try

I have always been a Colbie Caillat lover. No, I'm not gay, just saying. I find her soft voice soothing and her lyrics uplifting. I first fell in love with her when I heard her "Realize": "Take time to realize that your warmth is crashing down on in...If you just realize what I just realized..." I'm what my college friends used to call a hopeless romantic. Romantic behind closed doors (the awww's in books and movies) but cynical in real life. LOL. Colbie Caillat lets me be just that: my long flight, airplane medicine.

Well, mi dear Colbie is touching women with her new song "Try." She's saying we don't have to do too much to be beautiful or to love ourselves. Isn't that so true? Manis, pedis, so much makeup that you can barely feel your face? Let's not try too hard to be beautiful because what makes us beautiful really is on the inside.

Her cover photo of half-straight (no makeup) and half-made (mega-makeup) for Elle would cause you to do a double-take. It barely looks like the same person... smoky eyes on one side and something light on the other. How different do you look with your makeup? Do you need it?

Whatever, just be happy with you... 'cos she's happy with YOU. Xoxo!!

From Elle Magazine

Doesn't she remind you a bit of Celine Dion in one side of the pic, though?

From savpeople.com
 That's the professional Colbie. I usually see her dressed down in pictures...

 The chillin' Colbie I'm more used to. Know she just learned to play the piano? She's so laid back and cool!
From grammy.com
She's won the Grammy's y'all and still appears so humble. I don't ever want to try to hard to be beautiful on the outside. I'm beautiful already. So are you. Thanks Colbie for the reminder!!

MyHabit Your Habit

A few months ago, I received an email from Amazon.com inviting me to check out their MyHabit site. The email was attractive: nice clothes and jewelry. I checked out the site and even downloaded the app. Till today, I haven't purchased a thing from the site. Maybe it's because I'm not yet sure how it works. Is it an online discount store, a consignment store or a regular store selling items for the same price as the retailer? One of these days, I'll find out.

I have not unsubscribed from it yet (double negative... I could say I am still subscribed, but anyway...). So, as can be expected, I received another eye-catching email today tempting me to the site. I fell and am not unhappy I did [double negative again :-) ]. I spotted a sweet Cynthia Rowley dress I would wear in a heartbeat. You guessed right: it's a print dress.

Check out other items that tickled my fancy.

From $410 down to $205, my lovely dress is now SOLD OUT!!

Y'all know I love me my DVF but I'm not too huge a fan of this dress (from $365 to $183). It might be a bit too printy for me, as a friend so wickedly pointed out... I now own a few too many leopard print items.
Though I like how this looks, I'm seeing too many of them around to even consider purchasing it. DANNIJO necklace from $995 to $498 on MyHabit.
Now ladies, it may be beneficial to point out that I would not expect you with wear any necklace with the first print dress. If you must with the second, keep it a simple black or nude. The Dannijo necklace should only be worn with a simple (solid-colored) blouse... definitely not anything printy.

Till next time, xoxo!
