Daily Outfit: Call Your Girlfriend [Pinspiration]

Ever since I can remember, Victoria Beckham has been a style icon of mine. From her hair to her wardrobe, I am continually inspired by her style choices. This weekend for date night with my husband, my Pinspiration came from Victoria Beckham.

Earrings – Karma Boutique on Main | Scarf – modbod store | Blazer – Suzy Shier | Tunic – The Powder Room Clutch – Pesky Cat Designs on Etsy | Faux leather pants – Target | Booties – Macy’s 

Something about Saturday night, a smoky eye, and changing the part of my hair made this graffiti’d bridge the perfect location to shoot.

PS: If you’ve never seen the one shot video of Robyn’s Call Your Girlfriend, watch it!

Short Hair Inspiration – take it straight to your stylist!

As someone who has sported short hair for over four years, I am always collecting photos of the cutest short ‘dos. If you’re looking for short hair inspiration, my Pinterest Short Hair pinboard has over 1100 followers and is a terrific resource. It’s a collection of some fabulous inspiration for short hair. Here are a few of my favorites. (Since I’m a natural brunette, you may notice that many of the photos feature brunettes. They would look just as great on a blonde or redhead.)

How can you go wrong with Ginnifer Goodwin? She is the short hair “it” girl of the moment, if you ask me. Here’s another angle of all the texture.

Love the short, asymmetrical look.

I think I found this photo on a forum somewhere…

When I was flirting with the idea of short hair initially, I kept coming back to this cut.

I based one of my hairstyles off this edgy, short haircut. Love how short it is in the back and the longer bangs.

ANTM's McKey in Seventeen Magazine

Who isn’t inspired by the makeover episodes of America’s Next Top Model where they shear some girl’s hair totally short? McKey’s short hair in Cycle 11 was one of my faves. In the same cycle, Samantha also had a really cool asymmetrical cut.

A lot of the time short hair can look really edgy, but I like how soft and feminine this is in comparison.

Victoria Beckham

Victoria Beckham has been one of my style icons for years and when she cut her hair in this pixie cut, I was transfixed!

Shannyn Sossamyn

Shannyn Sossamyn (my doppelganger!) is proof that short hair can be messy and super cute.

2010 Grammys Fashion: Love It or Hate It?

One of the best parts about the 2010 Grammy Awards Show is the fashion.  We’ve taken the looks we love and hate and would love your feedback!

Love it!

Jennifer Hudson is wearing a fabulous architectural inspired little black dress by Victoria Beckham.  The dress speaks for itself and she has done well to keep her accessories to a minimum.

Taylor Swift looks elegant and bedazzled in a hand-embroidered Kaufman Franco dress.  The statement earrings are the perfect touch. Doesn’t she almost looks like a mermaid?

Love the draped skirt on Rihanna’s bold Elie Saab Couture gown.  The silhouette is absolutely fabulous.  Still undecided on the feather decor on the bodice.

Hate It

Looks we weren’t so fond of?

Not loving Beyonce’s look.  Particularly her makeup.  And is she really wearing those single strands of tinsel in her hair?!

Ciara’s futuristic Givenchy gown is a little out there.  Looks like something from an alien movie.  Not a fan.

The design of Mary J. Blige’s Gucci dress is not doing her any favors, making her look very full in the hips.  Had Mary J.’s dress had a sleeve or more fullness in top, it would have just balanced her body better.

The Verdict’s Still Out

I’m still undecided on Lady Gaga’s out-of-this world look.  This woman sure knows how to make an entrance!

Would you agree with our love/hate/undecided votes?  Who were your favorite and least favorite looks at the 2010 Grammys?

The Benefit of Short Hair

Now that the summer is under way and the heat is on, you–like me–may be contemplating cutting all your hair off to have a cool, carefree summer.  Here are some great reasons to go short:

  • Benefit of Short Hair #1:
    Short hair is way playful, youthful and yet sophisticated
  • Benefit of Short Hair #2:
    With short hair, think of all the money you’d save on shampoo, conditioner and hair products
  • Benefit of Short Hair #3:
    No more blow drying!  Plus, short hair takes a lot less time to style and maintain
  • Benefit of Short Hair #4:
    Short hair is totally in! Think of Victoria Beckham (my inspiration for this cut), Rihanna, Katie Holmes–all who have had fab short cuts recently!
  • Benefit of Short Hair #5:
    Short hair is healthy! I loved having long hair, but my ends were seriously damaged (especially since Utah). Now they’re not!

So if you are inspired and want to get a short cut yourself after reading the benefit of short hair, here are some great cuts that have inspired me:
