Clutch Time!

When you go out, do you lug around your big huge purse?
Does it get in the way everywhere you go? Do you hate keeping up with it?

Honey, you might wanna change those pants….

I’m a partial homebody!  As much as I love to dress up, the second I get home, the fanciness comes off.  T-shirts and yoga pants are all I’m worried about.  This is good and bad, since it usually means I don’t want to change if I have to run and get something.  And this was my problem the other evening… After getting home from work, I realized that I needed to go pick up a few supplies for a project at the local Hobby Lobby.  I was already changed into “comfy clothes” and 0414-jennifer-love-sweats_faseriously debated not changing.  Sometimes its just not worth it.  But I threw on a pair of jeans, cute flats and left.  Boy, I was glad I did. 

Always, always, always, I run into someone I know.  This time it was my BF’s roommate, his girlfriend and his other friend who I hadn’t seen in a long time.  We spoke and as I walked off, I was thankful I changed and looked more put together!  When I wear comfy clothes, I manage to see people that I want to make an impression on and don’t, ex-boyfriends, long lost friends, old teachers, etc…

Its not like I care what these people say about me when I walk away, its how I feel about myself when I walk away.  I’d rather not feel bad about myself but think, “It was good to see ..”    It would be nice if someone could tell me “You might wanna rethink those pants, shirt or whatever before you walk out that door!” I’m not saying that you have to always  be dressed to the nines.  But you might wanna think about who you might run into and how you’ll feel before you run out the door wearing that hole-y t-shirt and worn out pants……. 

I know I will.

Winter Weddings...what do you wear?!

So we've talked about winter weddings/bridesmaids dresses, but what about when you are a guest to a winter wedding. What do you wear? Heck I have trouble picking out what to wear to any wedding. This question has come up quite a few times lately, by me and a reader. So, Lets figure it out!

First off, think of dressing this way. If the bride weren't getting married, but just attending the wedding what would she wear? (Applicable if you know her only) Might help you get an idea of the appropriateness. Now, let's break it down

Semi-Casual Wedding
I was faced with this problem last weekend. My friends had one of the most unique/memorable weddings I'll ever attend (She wore a black dress, he wore jeans, it was so them!) Anyway it was a semi-casual day and I had a super super hard time deciding what to wear. I didn't want to be too dressy or too casual. And decided that I just couldn't wear flats to a wedding, it’s against my nature. So I ended up with black leggings, a grey/white pinstriped shirtdress slightly pulled over a red belt around my hips and black patent pumps. The leggings made it a little more casual but the shirt dress made it appropriate. If you attend a semi-casual wedding, keep it pretty simple but in your comfort zone.


  • A nice sweater with slacks
  • A shirt dress with flats
  • A loose fitting tee with a fitted skirt
  • A long tunic with leggings or patterned tights

Day/Inside Wedding

All weddings are hard to dress for. Unless you're in the wedding party, cause you're pretty much set. Day/Inside weddings are no exception. I usually consider these among the “something you wear to church" appropriateness. To amp it up just a notch and be totally on trend, pair this outfit with black tights, or a boyfriend blazer. Also belt it. Add one over your cardigan, dress, jacket, or skirt. HOMERUN! (Michelle Obama does this fabulously!) You'll look fashionable without being inappropriately dressed.


  • A dress with a pretty cardigan
  • A pencil skirt with a flowy/ruffly top (one fitted/one voluminous piece work well)
  • A print skirt and nice fitted blazer
  • A broached cardigan/blouse with sharp black pants

Day/Outside Wedding
No one should be having and outside wedding in winter. It's cold! But if you do attend one, wear a cute warm jacket with some great lines. Try some of these options for a dressier approach:

Evening/Cocktail Wedding

Here’s where you can have a little fun! Wear sparkly, statement jewelry! Wear fun shoes! Just make sure you look conservative and put together. You shouldn’t look like you’re headed out for the nearest club. Cover all your parts! Especially in winter, jewel tones and metallic are lovely! Avoid too much black. Though we all know the right LBD can be amazing!


· A perfect Little Black Dress

· A jewel toned cardigan and pencil skirt

· A wide leg black trouser with sparkly top/jacket

· A flowy top with nice skirt suit (again see Michelle Obama for perfecting this look)

Here’s a quick review: To be super trendy add black tights, a belt and/or a boyfriend blazer. Hello chic! Jewelry and shoes are your friends. Wear a simple outfit and dress it up or down by changing your shoes and jewelry. Its not your day, it’s the Bride’s. Never wear too much black or too much white/cream. You don’t want to upstage the bride!! Simple is better sometimes!

And if all else fails, wear your little black dress accessorizing and finishing accordingly to the wedding type.

Good luck dressing for your next wedding!

Oh boy, Olsenboye!

Unless you've been living under a rock with no tv, or media in the US for the last 23 years, then you definetly know who the Olsen twins are. Mary-Kate and Ashley have built an empire in their life so far, and made a huge impact on the fashion world through their own line, Elizabeth and James, and even their own coffee table book! Now, they are collaborating with JC Penney's for a new Junion line.

"Olsenboye, which is the Olsens’ ancestral name, will fall into Penney’s good and better price tiers. Olsenboye is a casual sportswear and accessories collection that includes denim, bottoms, tops, dresses, skirts, shorts, jackets, handbags and shoes. The line will retail from $20 to $50 and is being designed to be mixed to create different looks. The brand also will periodically flow in travel-inspired mini collections, each reflecting the looks and trends of different cities.

Beginning Nov. 6, Olsenboye will be available on and in those 50 stores, including the Manhattan flagship, for a limited time. The collection will have a major rollout, set for 600 Penney’s stores in February.

It’s very fun, fashion driven, trendy and wholesome at the same time." [WWD]

Now, Steve Madden is in on it to reports WWD. "Steven Madden Ltd. has signed a licensing agreement with Dualstar Entertainment Group to produce a collection of footwear and accessories for Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s new Olsenboye line...." [WWD]

I am looking forward to the launch of Olsenboye since I love some of their Elizabeth&James looks. And they've given everyone a tantalizing preview with a great commercial for JC Penney.

My Stiletto Saviour--a story from Sweden!

As you know, there are big changes coming to the blog very soon, and Tiffany a mid-westerner transplanted to Sweden by love is working on it! She's doing an amazing job!! THANK YOU TIFF! She shared her feelings about her stilettos with me earlier and I had to share:

"As a mid-western girl living abroad in Sweden, I find myself clinging to any flats or wedge heel shoes — this city is riddled with cobblestones. I picked only my favorite shoes to bring with me because I only had 3 suitcases when I moved overseas. For 8 months, ALL of my cute shoes remained in the closet. That is, until I came home to the US for a visit and found these:

Discreet and easy to use, the SoleMates High Heeler™ attaches easily to most stiletto and kitten heels. By increasing the surface area on the base of the heel, it reduces the pressure on this area and prevents the heel from sinking into grass or falling into cracks!

The patented design of the SoleMates High Heeler™ is mechanically engineered to fit snugly on most heels and yet the flexible material grips securely without damaging the heel or compromising the aesthetics of the shoe.

I don’t care who you are; you have a use for these. City grates, grass, cobblestones, or just simply keeping your best shoes in tip-top shape — these are a shoe LIFE SAVER!

They even ship internationally…. so considerate!! Thank you Sole Mates!"

Thank you Tiffany!

Keep on the look out for the new changes soon!

Belt Buckle Bulge: SOLUTION!

The waist of most of my pants (especially my jeans) stretches out pretty fast. Thus they require a belt. But I like to wear fitted tops that are longer than my pants waist.

This leads to a dilemma.

1) Wear a belt, pull the top over the belt, and have a funny pooch in the front over the belt buckle.

2) Forget the belt and just tug at my pants all day. And complain that I should have worn a belt and looked stupid with the pooch.

There is no win-win here. Either way, I end up pretty frustrated. Well after a #2 solution this past weekend, I’m fed up.

So after a little bit of internet searching, I think I found a solution. A couple brilliant people somewhere in time decided to make a “virtually invisible belt”. I found two such products, the isABelt and Invisibelt.

The Invisibelt promises that it “provides instant slimming effect, lays flat under fitted tops, and adjusts like a bra.”

It comes in naked, black, patterns, and a few limited edition colors.Sizing: original fits sizes 0-14; plus fits up to size 4x Price: $19.95”

The isABelt promises that it Belt is ideal when you need a belt, but a traditional one just won't work with your outfit. Helps eliminate back-gap, belt-bulk and belt slippage Great for fashion issues stemming from low-riser styles.”

It comes in clear or black. “Sizing: All sizes adjust down to accommodate smaller sizes , Small, medium and large size adjusts down to fit a size "0" ,Plus adjusts down to fit a size "4" Price: $16.95

Well, I definitely want one. I’m leaning toward the Invisibelt, but maybe cause I like the packaging and thickness of the belt better. Either way, this seems like a great solution to my problem.

Have you tried either of these products? Do you have this belt bulge problem? What was your solution?

Bridesmaid dresses that won't go straight to the back of the closet!

This next year, I happen to have a lot of friends that are getting married. Hooray for them! Let’s just hope they don’t turn into Bridezillas! (I’m not saying I might not become one myself some day) *crosses fingers and toes hoping not to be one* Anyway, this means lots of brides will be choosing bridesmaids and more importantly bridesmaids dresses. After my last experience with a David’s Bridal bridesmaid dress I don’t even want to think what other horrors girls could be facing this wedding season (which is practically all year long). So brides listen up and take a look, Stylecaster put together a list of some GREAT options for your maids! Now these are quite a bit out of my price range, but it’s a great place for ideas! PLEASE READ and RETAIN! Happy Wedding-ing!?!

Heather Levine is the Fashion Editor of, the #1 wedding website. As Fashion Editor, Heather is responsible for producing and styling the fashion and beauty stories most coveted by brides for and The Knot weddings magazines, as well as acting as host for fashion segments on The Knot TV, the site's 24/7 streaming video channel. As in-house stylist at The Knot, Heather takes care of editorial styling for media and special appearances.

Been a bridesmaid? Then you've definitely heard this line before: "...and the best part? You can totally wear this dress again!" Now, we all know what really happens. There's an unflattering, dusty-rose dress taking up way too much space in your closet. Not anymore! You can--no, you will want to--wear these styles more than once.

Amsale's Jersey Dresses: I'm obsessed with these super-comfortable dresses. They're all about simple sophistication. Plus, they're not nearly as noisy as taffeta! Rock this one-shoulder style at your next black-tie affair with some chunky, layered necklaces. Amsale jersey dress, $310, visit for stores.

Alvina Valenta's LBDs: You can't go wrong with a black, cocktail-style bridesmaid dress. I especially love the trapeze silhouette of this version by Alvina Valenta, but if it feels too shapeless for you, a belt will create the sexy, cinched waistline you crave. Alvina Valenta LBD, $190, visit for stores.

Vera Wang's Ethereal Dresses: This light pink hue is definitely wedding-worthy, but at first glance, may be a bit too delicate for everyday wear. A pair of gray tights and a sleek leather bomber jacket will add just the right amount of edginess to this sweet dress. Vera Wang ethereal dress, $250, visit for stores.

Melissa Sweet's Embellished Dresses: Okay, here's the deal; these sequin-studded gowns are way too much fun to wear only once! I would definitely sport this frock to a cocktail party with black tights and patent-leather stilettos (New Year's, anyone?). A friendly word of advice to brides eyeing this style: it's best for smaller bridal parties--think four girls or less. Melissa Sweet embellished dress, $268, visit for stores

Monique Lhuillier's Bateau-Neck Dresses: I'm addicted to Mad Men, so you can imagine how excited I was when I saw these high-neckline, pencil-skirt dresses hit the bridal scene. Plus--and this is a rare one--after the wedding you can even wear this number to work. Monique Lhuillier bateau-neck dress, $295, visit for stores.

Ann Taylor's Scoop-Neck Dress: What I love about a scoop-neck dress like this one is that you can totally wear a regular bra (your well-endowed bridesmaids will worship you for this), and the straps also make it easier to dress up or dress down. My favorite part? The oh-so-practical pockets, of course! Ann Taylor scoop-neck dress, $215, at

There ya go! Some great new options for bridesmaids dresses that you could wear again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again!

Obsession of the day: Leggings

I could wear these every day for the rest of my life (or at least until I get tired of them). I mean work, play, and sleep in them. Mine are unbelievably comfortable. Today, it is basically flooding outside so rain boots are a must. And leggings are the perfect “pant?” to wear with them. They slide right in with out any stuffing and dry out quickly when a few rain drops hit them! Woo-hoo!

Wear them with a longer tunic, belted dress (how I’m wearing mine today), a long cardigan, or a boyfriend blazer. Just about anyway imaginable, these can work. I especially love how they look with boots of almost any kind!

I like mine just plain stretchy black but you can get them in all kinds: jeggings, patterned, shredded, studded, liquid, and more! They can be super expensive or super cheap. Mine were $4.90 from Forever21. (I’m a cheapie sometimes.)

However you wear yours, you can’t deny this trend. What’s your current fashion obsession?

Is this trend really worth it? Thigh-high/Over the Knee Boots

thigh high bootsI am patiently waiting for just the right time to wear my boots. And this has me wondering if one of the biggest trends this season is worth the hype—thigh-high boots?

I haven’t bought any, nor do I really plan too, but they sure do look fun to wear! But they also look extremely uncomfortable?!

Obviously they aren’t for eating dinner at the local Chili’s.

1) You have to sit down and those boots don’t look good for sitting

2) People would give you some strange looks.

Tons of celebs have rocked these boots, but it just makes me wonder, if you’re not famous, not in high fashion, and not attending social events 24/7, are these boots really worth the investment?


Yes, they are uber fabulous looking, but I think that I could forego a little uber fab for a season, save some cash, and buy a classic piece in the spring. Plus, I have a little “Pretty Woman” feelings about these boots, and don’t want people to think those same thoughts about me.fcboots_overknee celebs

For me, I’ll wait this trend out. Will you be buying these thigh-high boots? How much are you willing to pay for trends?

P.S. If you search for pictures of them, type in “over the knee boots”, otherwise you won’t get what you are looking for!
