New Discovery: Shabby Apple

I love finding unique websites so when my friend dropped a hint of I had to check it out. This unique dress website categorizes their dresses by theme, for example “The Silk Road” has Asian inspired pieces or Oh la la which is filled with adorable dresses featuring sailor stripes. This one stop adorable shop has clothing for fitness, swimwear, plus size, maternity and aprons as well as accessories and clothing for little ones. You will honestly never need to shop anywhere else ever again, their unique pieces are appropriate for everyday, the office, a night with the girls, or your Saturday morning yoga class.

Unsure what dresses will flatter you? Click on their “style tools” section answer three simple questions and they’ll tell you your body type and countless suggestions of what will look fabulous on your fabulous figure.

And it gets better- click on “Charity” to read how Shabby Apple donates 5% of their proceeds to Unitus who work with poverty stricken families in India, which is where they produce their goods and fabrics. This online shop is so unique, take the time to look around and you’ll be sure to fall in love with at least one item.

Product Review: Tresemme Dry Shampoo

Unless you have really short or baby fine hair, there is no reason to wash your hair every day. A few days after blow drying though my hair gets so flat so I’m absolutely in love with- and very picky about- dry shampoo. I’m passionate about Ojon dry shampoo, it smells and works fabulously but what girl can afford that on a monthly basis? So for a more affordable option I tried the first introduction of Tresemme’s hair refreshers- the waterless foam shampoo and hated it! I just made my hair damp and lifeless even if I blew it dry, so today I picked up their dry shampoo spray at Target. My bangs could use a little life so I just spritzed them, rubbed it in, and boom! Voluminous, fabulous, full of life hair! I love it! I would strongly recommend any girl to pick up this affordable option- keep it in your bathroom, throw it in your gym bag and you’re set!

Trend: Mad for Plaid

Here's the thing- I like plaid, really I do, but it needs to be made girly and fun for this fall because I'm so done with men's wear inspired fashion. Last winter we saw the plaid trend with men's plaid shirts under cardigans, but this fall and winter it's now flirty. This fun top is from Modcloth and enhances your shape with elastic smocking around the waist to huge your curves. Personally, I wouldn't button it all the way up to the neck as pictured here and I would wear it with Joe's Jeans skinny visionaire super stretchy fit pant. Pair this look with some vintage inspired boots or flats from Mod Cloth and your hair in loose feminine curls.
Let's make this fall and winter girly and show off our figures!
