|From Tough Love, October 2010|
1. Sheer Chic á la ProFreshStyle
I have about 2 sheer boyfriend-length tops in my closet that I have yet to accessorize up. If only I could be as bold as Christina and rock it Dorothy Dandridge style complete with wide-brimmed hat...á la AllthePrettyBirds
Circle skirts are all the rage this season. Once I get my hands on one, I'd love to tough it up military-style the way this lovely lady did.
3. Maxi Fresh á la SongofStyle
Ah, the quintessential maxi skirt of the season. I have yet to venture into this realm of my closet. My maxi skirt awaits. I think I'll fare well with a leather and a great printed top like this one.
4. Cropped Khakis á la TheHautePursuit
I've never really been a huge fan of Khakis. They remind me of manual labor and/or late 90's Gap commercials. But grabbing a pair in an updated silhouette like this one could work. It always boils down to the silhouette.
5. Shearling Sweetie á la ParisMostWanted
Making a white lace frock look winter-appropriate is an ever daunting task. She manages to do it with the proper layering techniques. Doesn't she look warm, fuzzy and fierce, even with no pants? Loves it.
6. Accessories Addict á la SeaOfShoes
I resolve to live by the mantra "There is no such thing as too many accessories". Layer on jewel after jewel. I mean I haven't played dress up in my own jewelry box in a while. Now is the time.
7. Plaid Playshorts á la CultureCynic
I've been seeing it for a few seasons now. You know, shorts for winter? Call me old fashioned but I haven't wrapped my head around how a curvy girl with thunder thighs like mine can pull this look off. Nevertheless, plaid makes an even bolder statement, especially when appropriately accessorized with complimentary pieces like the ones seen here.
8. Oversized Everything á la ChicMuse
This is another concept I have yet to master given my curves. ChicMuse truly gives meaning to the word chic by pairing this slouchy look with pinned up hair and super high platforms.
9. All-Season Shoes á la ClothesAreCute
I'm loving the way she re-worked the same Jeffrey Campbell Clinics I'm wearing in the first picture above and made them winter-appropriate in a trendy way with knee-highs. Something I need to try.
10. Tee Time á la InnyVinny
I have a love/hate relationship with graphic tees. As in, love 'em on other people/hate 'em on myself. But this look gives me something to try. Love a turban, love a good tee. Add a drop of fly with the bold lip and shades, and you've got the perfect recipe.
That's it for my style resolutions! What are yours?
