William B + Friends Styling Contest – Vote for Me!

Hello Everyone! I know it’s been a hot minute, but I hope you are well!

I attended the grand opening of William B + Friends at Westfield Century City and I entered a styling contest at their store where I had to create a head to toe look.  I scoured the entire store which has a lot of fun, chic, affordable clothing for women and I created this colorful ensemble which was exciting to put together!

William B + Friends fall look I created. Please like this exact photo on their Facebook fan page!

If my photo gets the most likes on Facebook I will win an iPad.  Please go to their FB page and like the photo as I would love to win this as an early Xmas gift!  What I also like about this look is that it can be worn for your 9 to 5 and then for a night out take off the blazer and you have a fab lace top you can rock the night away in!

I put a lot of thought into the outfit and for some reason I feel patriotic in it…

Thank you in advance!!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month – The Men in Pink

The Men in Pink

Breast Cancer Awareness month is in full swing, and there are so many things for women to wear to support the cause.  But wait, what about men?  They want to show their support as well and maybe a bracelet or keychain isn’t enough.  And since I love color on men too, why not wear it?  Well, I am here to show men affordable and easy ways to incorporate sprinkles of pink into your wardrobe to support the cause with confidence!

The Man in the Hot Pink Suit wearing Moods of Norway

Before I begin, I came up with the idea to do this because The Man in the Hot Pink Suit wears his Moods of Norway 3-piece ensemble boldly all over town to support breast cancer awareness and inject some colorful cool into the men’s fashion scene.  Maybe you don’t want to go this far and wear all pink, but we can start with baby steps.  So what’s in it for you? 

Are You Ready For Some Football?

If you watch football, you see pink everywhere.  From the helmets to towels to cleats, you can’t miss it.  But what do you wear off the field?  Even if you don’t play football and you just like to be in shape, bike etc., you can wear this Nike Dedicated shirt from Sport Chalet.  The pink bar under the word is available for you to write in who you are dedicating the fight of breast cancer to, for that personalized touch.  Made of dri-fit cotton, you can work up a sweat and keep cool while fighting the fight! $28 http://www.sportchalet.com.

Spruce up your sneakers with pink shoelaces for BCA month!

Another touch of pink can be pulling out your current shoelaces from your sneakers and replacing them with pink ones!  You can buy these at any sports store, such as Sports Authority for $2.49.

Taking Care of Business

Rick wearing a Thomas Pink tie & cufflinks

It’s great to see many of the working class men wearing dress pink shirts this month.  Another way to accessorize your business look with pink is by wearing a Thomas Pink tie and matching cufflinks! One of the best places to purchase pink items for men, the tie pictured above is silk woven from England and the cufflinks are made from leftover pieces of the tie.  The tie is $115 and the cufflinks are $50.  Thomas Pink, Westfield Century City, 10250 Santa Monica Blvd., 310- 843-0014.

Turnbull & Asher pink striped pocket square from Bloomingdales

To add another level of sharpness to the suited and booted man, try adding a pocket square. I found this Turnbull & Asher one at The Men’s Store in Bloomingdales, which adds a bonus touch of class! $30. Bloomingdales -The Men’s Store, Westfield Century City, 10250 Santa Monica Blvd, 310-277-2100

Pep in Your Prep

A surprise find that would I love for men to be seen with is this pink 15-inch laptop case from Bric’s.  With a soft, microsuede type feel, this accessory can also hold your iPad, cell phone, notepad, etc. $60. Bric’s, Westfield Century City, 10250 Santa Monica Blvd., 310-551-1015

Alex & Louis pink bowtie and suspenders

If you’re more of a bowtie guy, Alex & Louis has a nice selection, including this pink plaid one I found.  They also have pink suspenders as well, which I think would be a unique touch to a preppy look! Bowtie, $60 Suspenders $45. Alex & Louis, Westfield Century City, 10250 Santa Monica Blvd., 310-710-8780

Maybe you want to show pink underneath your clothes, so why not wear these pink Turnbull & Asher socks if you dare?  These lightweight socks add some flair and could be all you need to “pinkefy” your look! $35. Bloomingdales -The Men’s Store, Westfield Century City, 10250 Santa Monica Blvd, 310-277-2100

Seeing Pink

Artez wearing pink lens Ray-Ban aviators

It’s always sunny somewhere, and men should be prepared with sunglasses.  Why not wear these sharp, Ray-Ban aviators with a light pink lens for BCA month?  It gives you that Mr. Cool look without overdoing it. $209. Sunglass Hut @ Macys, Westfield Century City, 10250 Santa Monica Blvd., 310-556-1611

H&m pink v-neck

Another option is a simple, pink v-neck.  H&M has them in stock right now, and you can dress it up with a blazer, sweater jacket, or just pair it up with jeans.  At $5.95 you could buy one of these and some other colors! H&M, www.hm.com/us

Beauty Expert Stacy Cox and Stacy Gardner, The Style Goddess

Well, I hope you have been inspired to now go out there and get your pink on and support breast cancer awareness month with style and a pop of color!  Thanks to my models, Cougar Hjelmeseth, Joshua Vera, Rick Lindland, Artez Bailey and a special thanks to the fab beauty expert and my on-site partner in crime at KTLA Stacy Cox!

Giuliana Rancic Dishes on the Oscars Red Carpet & Beauty Tips

The Style Goddess & Giuliana Rancic

The Oscars – an annual event for the stars and a time to honor top movies of the year.  For fashionistas, it’s a time to see who will be walking the red carpet and what they are wearing.  I had the opportunity to chat with Giuliana Rancic, co-anchor of E! News and costar on the Fashion Police, to get the inside scoop on the big day tomorrow and learn more about her new beauty regimen.

Looking fabulous in DVF (Diane von Furstenberg) at the W Hotel Hollywood, we complimented each other on our looks (she loved my BCBG goldenrod peep-toe pumps) and then got down to business.

1.     What’s your prediction on who will rock the red carpet?

J. Lo will be presenting this year and she will be the one to rock the red carpet.  She’s looking so good right now at 42, with kids and a divorce! Michelle Williams is another one to watch as well as Rooney Mara – I would love to see her wear a bold color.

2.     What will be the “It” color of the evening?

Lot’s of white gorgeous gowns! I will also be wearing white twice for the evening.  It appears that lately the color I wear to these awards shows turns out to be the “it” color most celebs are wearing.

3.    Which designer is the one to watch?

Marchesa!  I love the new collection and Viola Davis wore her at the Golden Globes.  And it was white!

4.      You’re not wearing foundation these days what’s the secret to you natural glow?

We spend so much money on makeup it’s best to take care of your skin while wearing it.  That means don’t fall asleep with it on because it can cause you to break out more. I’m now using DDF (Doctors Dermatologic Formula), which is a Professional skincare line that’s affordable and sold at Sephora.

5.      What are some tips & tricks for looking naturally gorgeous?

Less is more.  I love a smokey eye during the week and a really clean look for sophistication.  Take skin care seriously!  Use the right products that work for your skin and no botox.  DDF is great for my skin and you can even get a skin consultation at Sephora to see what works for you!

I would have loved to talk with her more, but the show must go on and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the red carpet on Sunday!  I also got some of the DDF products that I can’t wait to try and will do a review on them in March.

Be sure to check out DDF’s Facebook Page to see when they’ll be at your Sephora for a skin consultation (LA is today at Westfield Century City, 10250 Santa Monica Blvd.) and for a chance to chat with Giuliana about fresh face tips and her red carpet faves live next Tuesday!
