As you may have read in my previous post, today I saw the new movie, 27 Dresses. I dragged my dad along, but he always picks the movie so it was my turn! I really liked it, it was cute. If you miss it in theaters, you should still order it on paperview or rent it! The movie inspired me to make a post using some of Jane's dresses as ideas for better ones. enjoy!
[Theory > ]
The odd orange sherbert color of Jane's dress is the least of it's problems! It looks like a 6 year old's ballet recital costume! The mesh skirt, loose bows, and rough ribbons look sloppy. The flower decals might attract a bee! When picking out a dress with flowers on it, don't opt for ones that are 3-D! Instead, choose one with a fashion-forward bold print like the one shown on the right!
[Marc Jacobs > ]
Jane's dress has way too much poof! Don't select a dress with too much volume. Find one that just has a little bit of shape to make it interesting. The one on the right is sleek until it reaches the bottom, where it has an interesting detail to make it pop out. A volumous dress should ideally be a solid color. Stay away from poofy dresses with a pattern- that's just way too much!
Plum Sweater- American Eagle (I was shocked when I got it for Christmas! its so un-american eagle)
Skinny Jeans- Delia's
Top- Calvin Klein Jeans
Scarf- Oscar, by Oscar de le Renta
Shoes- Franco Sarto
Bag- I don't even know, but I bought it at Jasmine Sola

I put a dollop of handcream on my palm but didnt rub it in. Then, I put my hand over the pellet stve for a few minutes (you could do it with a wood-burning stove or fireplace as well). After the cream warmed up a bit, i rubbed it in =] yayyy
The Body Lotion, Victoria's Secret, $20

If you've been keeping up I'm sure you've heard of her. If you haven't, or just lack motivation to listen to her-go find her now! Her style is very upbeat and good to yours ears. Indie/Alternative.
Link to her myspace: http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=56725469
My Picks: Mouthwash, Foundations, Merry Happy
I've liked her for a while now. Her song "The Way I Am" was featured in a JCPenny holiday commercial. Very pretty Voice. I like the Ingrid Michaelson tshirts. Indie/Pop/Folk Rock
Link to her myspace: http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=11436578
My Picks: Overboard, Breakable
You can hear her spirit in her voice. She went through most of her life expecting to play tennis professionally but found her dream when she got the lead in a school musical. Her music is definately in the pop genre. I can't say she's the most original, she's something we've heard before. But her music does make me want to drive around with the windows down (or atleast it would if it were 30 degrees warmer.) Pop/Rock

My Picks: Are You Happy Now, Forget to Breathe
I swear I've seen a music video of hers when i was younger...early 2000s. I haven't heard from her much since then, but I came across a good song by her. Definately worth looking into it. Country/Pop

My Pick: Poison's in the Sugar
And please- use itunes/buy these girls' songs. While limewire may be great, I'm a firm believer in supporting lesser-known musicians.
I'm Kate, and you're looking at my new blog. I've blogged before..but I hated my blog so after about a week I stopped haha. I actually want to make this one good so keep checking back.
Fashion, lifestyle, music, anything else I want to post about-that's what you'll see. Enjoy!
