Dressing the Petite Lady


Hello Fashionistas,

Yesterday we talked about the Curvy Bottomed Lady, and today we are going to talk about the Petite Lady. How do you know if you’re Petite? You are Petite if you are under 5’2.  Think Eva Longoria, Nicole Ritchie, Natalie Portman, Carrie Underwood.

Tips for the Petite Lady:

  • Wear v-neck tops. V-neck tops elongate your figure
  • Wear vertical stripes. Vertical stripes elongate your figure which is flattering.
  • Wear a tight fitting dress. This will do great things for your gorgeous silhouette and according to fashion experts, is the best style for a petite woman.
  • Tuck in your shirts and blouses. This is an easy way to get your clothes to fit closer to your figure. Tuck in a baggy shirt and voilà you have a more flattering situation.

Dressing the Curvy All Over Lady


Hello Fashionistas,

Yesterday we talked about the Curvy Bottomed Lady, and today we are going to talk about the Curvy All Over Lady otherwise known as the apple. How do you know if you’re Curvy All Over? You are curvy all over if you have broad shoulders, a large bust, narrow hips, slim thighs, a flat rear end and an undefined waistline.  Think Queen Latifah, Ivanka Trump, Jennifer Hudson, Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Tips for the Curvy All Over Woman:

  • Add a belt. Add definition to your waist with a belt over a dress or long blouse
  • Support the girls! A proper fitting bra can completely change your look.
  • Monochromatic outfits. Lengthen and slim your apple silhouette with the same color on top and bottom. Try shades of the same color and fabric combinations.
  • Elongate your top. Find a v-neck that lengthens your top; which gives a natural slimming effect. Not too tight or too loose!

Dressing the Curvy Bottomed Lady


Hello Fashionistas,

Yesterday we talked about the Curvy Balanced Lady, and today we are going to talk about the Curvy Bottomed Lady otherwise known as the Pear. How do you know if you’re Curvy Bottomed? You are curvy on the bottom if your hips and backside are wider than your shoulders,  Think Beyonce, Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Lopez, Alicia Keys.

Tips for the Curvy Bottomed Woman

  • Go for an A-line dress and tops which emphasize the upper body while slimming wider hips
  • Wide is good. Keep the hems of pants, skirts and dresses wide to visually balance a pear-shaped body.
  • Pointy-toed shoes with wide-hemmed pants will make your legs look a mile long
  • Focus attention upward. Draw the attention up on the top half of your body by choosing slim, fitted tops, button-down shirts and cardigans.

Dressing the Curvy Balanced Lady


Hello Fashionistas,

After 11 + years of dressing women (and men) the number one challenge I see people struggling with is dressing the body they have today. Not ten years ago, today. So throw away those jeans you are still struggling to get back into and buy a fabulous dress that celebrates the hot body you have today! I am happy to present a series of Dressing for Your Body posts. Today we are going to start with the Curvy Balanced Lady otherwise known as the Hourglass. How do you know if you’re curvy balanced? You are shaped like a hourglass, which means that there’s at least ten inches difference between your waist and hip measurements and your shoulders and hips are the same. Think Halle Berry, Scarlett Johansson, Sofia Vergara. You’ve got the figure all women envy so celebrate it!

Tips for the Curvy Balanced Lady:

  • Show off those curves! Wear tops and bottoms that highlight your shape
  • Wear Structured Fabrics
  • Stay away from baggy anything!
  • Wrap Dresses are your best friend!

Blissful Living- Lavished Home Decor at Belle and June!


Hello Fashionistas!

Ladies, do you remember your first home kitchen set that your parents probably got you for Christmas when you were five or six? I begged for the Barbie full kitchen set that came with a telephone, table and coffee maker as well as the traditional dishwasher, fridge, stove and play food. That year, my sisters and I would come home from school and our only focus would be on that kitchen! We thought it was the best thing on earth. We would take turns being the dad, mom and the child, dress up for the role and played house for hours. In those moments we fantasized living a lavished lifestyle. In my mind, I was not going to be able to function without living in a peaceful, harmonious, serenity of a home; it was a must have above everything else! It even got to the point where I would wake up and clean my play house area like no other! I was obsessed with the color, the way the lighting of my basement window hit kitchen early in the morning, those small details that made everything come together and everything so real to me. I would go around my actual house looking for additional pieces to add into my play house kitchen to add the finishing touches. My mom hated when things went missing. But, as I grew up little did I know that imaging and decorating my little play/dream home was easier than actually doing it. Today, I find it sometimes difficult purchasing, chic and exclusive home décor pieces at the prices I believe are worth spending my money on. As well as finding those pieces that speak to you, and says something about your character. When I came across Belle and June Home Décor website, my neglected “must have” sensed immediately turned on my “must have it NOW” impulses. I felt like a little girl again, I needed to grab their organic, Italian woven cottoned Sefte Neama Duvet Bed cover. I could even hear my bed itself calling for it. Their stuff is just too great to pass up!

Belle and June Home décor specializes in luxurious, chic, exclusive home accents and décor. They also specialize in providing these pieces at a great valued prices! Giving us the best of both worlds; fabulosity and premium rates. Sit down, have your piece of cake and eat it too on that note! No, literally, you can sit down in your kitchen and have a nice piece of red velvet cake (my favorite choice) on Belle and June’s Italian Rosanna Primavera Dessert Plates, which are designed modernly of 19th century antique ( I love the vintage feel) Italian post cards! Can you say, “Hello Darling?!” They have Over 5,000 home décor and accent products and pieces that were carefully chosen to beautify and glam up any room in your home.

From decorative pillows and drapes to waste baskets and stepping stools, Belle and June have it all.
