The results are in for our informal non-scientific poll about the most stressful, anxiety producing aspects of planning and hosting the perfect event. 98.7% of you responded that more than anything else you were consumed with losing 5-30 pounds prior to your big event. Losing weight beat out planning your meal, choosing the theme, decor, and party supplies, making your seating chart, and weight loss even topped finding the perfect outfit to wear. Continue Reading →
It's that time of year and if you have not already, you will most likely receive at least one invitation to an ugly sweater Christmas party. Since we are pretty sure you don't have anything ugly hanging in your closet we have put together a few inexpensive options for you to look great wearing ugly!
DIY Ugly Sweaters
The easiest and most inexpensive option is to simply take a sweater you already own and ugly it up. Just pin on goofy holiday related items. You can actually order an Ugly Christmas Sweater Kit on Amazon.
Our second stop is generally Amazon because they have a ridiculously large selection of the ugliest sweaters we have ever seen. Since this is not a sweater you will wear over and over again, at least for us, price trumps quality every time.
With the weekend upon us and Cinco de Mayo, the Kentucky Derby, and Mother's Day all next week, this Style Me Pretty Living video we first saw on FB, shows how2 easily add a touch of pretty to all your celebrations with decorative flower sticks! Continue Reading →

Party Pretty! Party Hearty!
We love adult Barbie costumes for Halloween, for girlfriend birthday parties, and even as Mom +Me Matching playdates outfits. Our biggest issue is finding something fun yet classy to wear. Well, look no further. Now, Jeremy Scott's hot Moschino runway looks are available to rent at Rent The Runway! This collection is great for a night out on the town but would also make for a great Barbie Halloween costume. Don't miss your chance to reserve a piece from the Moschino Capsule Collection today! Just an FYI – Izzy tried to rent a fabulous dress from Rent the Runway about a week before her event. I cannot express how disappointed she was when her size was quickly grabbed up and was unavailable for her weekend. I talked her in to trying the larger size which worked out great but she did have a back up just in case. So the moral of this story is if you know you want to wear one of these fabulous outfits for Halloween – reserve TODAY!
If you want to be the absolute hottest woman in the room, order the MOSCHINO Barbarella Jacket & Skirt. Yes, it will set you back a pretty penny but it will cost no where near as much as if you actually purchased this outfit. In addition to Barbie, this particular combination would make a fantastic Elle Woods.
Looking for something a bit more reasonably priced? Here are a few more options!
