Glam for Less: How to Look and Feel Great for Less

Many on the outside who look at me say wow, she has some big bucks!!

In reality I just know how to bargain hunt really well, with the exception of a few things.

These are my tried and true tips for looking your best and getting the maxium experiences out of life.

1. When updating your wardrobe look for jeans that are on trend but have a BOGO sale, the wide jean and culottes are big this year so newyorkandcompany.com so I got two pairs of jeans for the price of one.

2. Haircare: If you go to your local salon ask when there weekly specials are, same if you go to a local place for waxing needs. Chain hair salons such as dreamdry.com or waxing chains have a point system, so if you are regular ask how many points do you have or need for braiding or an updo, they will give you points even if you buy products.

3. Samples: You heard about a product you really love, but you aren't sure if it will work on skin or perfume is for you, then go to sephora.com and ask for a sample the samples are fre…

How to Wear Outfits for the Spring

This Spring we are seeing a lot of floral, denim, and military styles.

You may ask so how do I wear these trends without looking like everyone else.

Floral Look:

If you are wearing a single floral skirt then go solid with the top, or if you are wearing a completely embellished floral dress leave it alone and just wear it as is, great options on the lower end are from forever21.com, mid range options are at newyorkandcompany.com, and luxury items we recommend aliceandolivia.com

The Denim:

We see the high rise or Mom jeans are back in style, the deconstructed oversized chambray colored denim shirts that you can wear day or evening. Also, we are seeing constructed denim dresses, that are body con, or scoop neck that if worn with pearls can pass for a great formal first date.

The stores that have these looks are hm.com for the lower price point, mid range price is macys.com and luxury is saks.com. They have all of the denim needs in the styles we discussed previously.

Military Style:

NYFW MEN Season 4- Recap

As Skylight Terminal transforms itself for NYFW Women, we had yet another incredible round of shows at NYFW Men.

The theme was functionality with regards to ready to wear, buying it right off the runway, we didn't see any of those looks or that hype.

Designers are more about can a man wear this and would a store buyer give us a purchase order?

Here is our recap:

Nick Graham show which was about Mars and everyone was show up looking "spacey."

The beauty of Nick Graham now covering his shows for the third season straight, is he takes a theme such as Mars and the buyers, blogger,and other press are standing in a room, that looks like we are on the set of Star Wars and makes his clothes impeccably functional and highly tailored.

Bill Nye comes out in a sliver tuxedo jacket with black space ships that are subtle and a wonderfully tailored pant and a Bowie with his signature hat, and you expect silver people coming out.

Our favorite looks are the red satin evening jackets with the si…
