Fresh Picks to Follow: Silky Blouses

My Friday Fresh Picks is inspired by an InStyle Magazine article about Silky Blouses.  Sexy, slouchy and gauzy are just a few words that describe these feminine tops.  Here is a quick guide to finding a perfect silk blouse: 
  1. Soft Shapes - Make sure the shirt doesn’t fit like a normal structured button down.  Look for shirts that are more relaxed and has a slightly oversized fit.  Some examples include peasant shirts, . 
  2. Coverage - The fabrics for these shirts are often sheer, so be sure to wear a camisole underneath.  Adding a camisole underneath gives extra coverage, or if you're really feeling bold, you can try pairing the translucent tops with a pretty, brightly colored bra underneath for a sexy look. Neutral color camisoles works best for these blouses because they do not distract from the blouse. 
  3. Flowly - The idea of this look is to have drapey silhouette.  This look is best when worn hanging loosely over skinny jeans or tucked into a high-waisted pencil skirt or trousers.  A silky blouse should not to be cinched with a belt.

My Birthday Month and a Sale!

February is my all time favorite month out of the year.  I especially love it because it’s my birthday month, my sister’s birthday month and a few of my very good friends’ birthday month (which is reason to celebrate throughout the month), and of course there’s Valentines Day.   I’ll definitely share my birthday plans and all of the upcoming celebrations.

Anthropologie had a pretty decent sale today.  Did you get anything today or did you sit this one out?  I haven’t bought anything yet, but I’m sure that I will before the week is out.  Let me know what you got!

Behold ~ BHLDN

Have you ladies heard Anthropologie’s awesome news about BHLDN yet?  I was so thrilled to learn that Urban Outfitters, Inc. (URBN), a leading lifestyle specialty retail company operating under the Anthropologie, Free People, Leifsdottir, Terrain and Urban Outfitters brands, announced that the wedding brand, BHLDN, will debut on Valentine's Day 2011. 

I was mesmerized by the pictures on the BHLDN website that revealed a sneak preview to a whimsical and romantic bridal collection.  Not that I’m anywhere close to being engaged, but I have to say I’m very excited to find this out before I end up walking down the aisle. Following in the tradition of Anthropologie, BHLDN plans to put emphasis on not just apparel, but the imagination and details of every element that makes up a wedding.  I’ve already starting envisioning my wedding dress and my Anthro inspired wedding.

Be sure to visit the BHLDN’s website (here) to sign up for future e-mails and updates.  Also, check out the press release from URBN (here) for more information about BHLDN.
