Celebrity Fashion: Jennifer Love Hewitt

April 1, 2014 | Heather

Stylish dresses for bingo nights

From the adorable girl-next-door of teenybopper films to the sultry antiques dealer of a hit TV series, we’ve all seen the transformation that Jennifer Love Hewitt has undergone. No matter who Jennifer portrays, she maintains her unique and remarkable fashion sense. She’s one of the Hollywood celebrities whose fashion faux pas range from very little to nil. Her role as Riley Parks in The Client List provides us an opportunity to marvel at her ensembles, which she pulls off  effortlessly.

It therefore goes without saying that Jennifer Love Hewitt strives to be stylish in whatever she does—whether she’s out with her husband, shopping for baby clothes, or playing her favorite classic bingo game. Yes, the actress knows how to have a good time despite her busy schedule; she’s regularly spotted around West Hollywood engaging in bingo games. Rumors in several interactive online bingo community even say that she used to host the Drag Queen Bingo nights at Hamburger Mary’s. She was even spotted playing bingo with the Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson.

You too can pull a Jennifer Love look during bingo nights by wearing her dresses (or something similar, no pressure). Here are some fashion tips I’ve taken from Jennifer Love Hewitt over the years.

· Burnt orange maxi dress with light orange scarf draped artlessly over the shoulders, worn during a wedding ceremony in SoHo, New York
· Mid-thigh boho print dress by MINKPINK matched with brown leather boots, worn at Drybar in Studio City
· Ombre bandage dress paired with nude platforms, worn at the launch party of The Client List
· Navy blue low-cut knit summer dress matched with wedge sandals, worn during a lunch-out at a Malibu restaurant
· Glittery and beaded black tunic dress, worn for the Women in Entertainment Breakfast event

Online bingo providers frequently use celebrities and fashion to help promote their products. CheekyBingo on Twitter often showcases chic celebrity pictures and provides trendy giveaways through contests, while free-to-play bingo app Bingo Party sometimes give fans a chance to party with celebrity fashion icons. Jennifer Love Hewitt’s passion for the game and fashion sense make her perfect for a bingo ambassador role, and being a Drag Queen Bingo host in the past is just a stepping stone for something greater. Who knows? Maybe she will become the next Lauren Goodger who is one of the popular faces of online bingo today.

Time for Coachella

April 1, 2014 | Heather

It’s that time of year again. Time to head to the desert for sun and song with friends and, of course, good fashion. Headline your own show with standout style, a mix that is equal parts vintage vibe, feminine flair and beautiful boho. Beginning with denim cutoffs, add a vintage blouse with lace or crochet. Then load on the accessories: a fringed hobo, a fist full of rings, a long tasseled necklace, and colorful sandals. With style this eye-catching, you’ll be stealing the show from the Aloe Blacc, Aeroplane, Beck and Bastille!

1. Beyond Vintage Lace Blouse:
A touch of lace gives a feminine flair to an otherwise entirely boho look. This vintage-inspired blouse has lovely detailing, including a scoop neck, dropped shoulder seams, and long dolman sleeves. Gathered elastic at waist and cuffs provides a fit that stays put while you dance the day away.

2. Stella & Dot Bianca Tassel Necklace:
From office to Coachella? We wouldn’t think it was possible, but this versatile necklace looks as great buttoned up as it does buttoned down, proving that good fashion goes anywhere. Seen on Minka Kelly and Maria Menounos, it features a mix of antiqued and shiny 12k gold plated brass chains and facets that end in a fun, swinging tassel.

3. Siwy Denim Cutoffs:
Siwy has perfected the denim cutoff. Their longed-for style comes in a variety of washes from traditional blue to eye-popping pink. Pick your flavor and mix this classic concert-going style with anything.

4. Ray-Ban Polarized Wayfarer Sunglasses:
Another go-anywhere style. Buy these iconic Ray Ban’s for Coachella weekend, then wear them all year round. Plastic frames with polarized lenses and logo lettering at right lens and at temples.

5. Fringe Bags:
Fringe benefits. Anything fringe goes for a music festival, including these Southwest-inspired leather bag. Details like whip-stitched edges, antiqued gold hardware and a colorful resin bead at the magnetic-snap front provide plenty of second glances.

6. Alice + Olivia Bella Print Flat Sandals:
Sassy snake. Alice + Olivia take a simple sandal and make it sassy with colorful snake-embossed leather. Add color to your look with their coral, purple, and green hues. A buckled ankle strap is the way to go when you’re on your feet all day and night!

7. House of Harlow 1960 Cushion Cocktail Ring:
The goddess of boho, Nicole Richie injects her signature style into her Cushion Cocktail Ring. Set with a turquoise resin cabochon and flanked by tiny pavé crystals, this ring is further enhanced with a textured band.

Basic Essentials: Spring

March 31, 2014 | Heather

The essentials: a stripe tee, a loose tank, aviators, flat sandals, white skinny jeans, a structured satchel and a printed scarf. The combinations are endless, and the simplicity is divine. Whether you’re packing for a getaway, doing a little spring cleaning or learning to buy just the necessities, this list of eight items provides the must-haves that will be the backbone of your wardrobe all spring and into the summer. Pick up the following for a look that is fresh, yet classic; trendy, yet timeless!

1. Stripe Tee:
A Splendid Stripe Tee is a timeless t-shirt. Relaxed, yet tailored, a striped tee will get you through this season and many, many more to come. Pick classic creme and black or branch out with colors, a striped tee pairs back to skinnies for date night, cut offs for lounge, or layers up with a jacket and pencil skirt for work.

2. Aviators:
Ray-Ban Oversized Original Aviator Sunglasses, THE original. Once out of necessity and now out of pleasure, the aviator has always spoken classic sportswear style. Ray Ban is the gold standard of shades; their aviators are constructed of wire metal and finished with logo lettering.

3. Loose Tank:
I love the Vince Drape Hem Tank! As the mercury rises, we shed our sleeves. Much like the striped tee, a basic tank like Vince’s wears well over everything, from your bikini to a crisp white skinny jean. By choosing a soft neutral like blush or taupe, you guarantee miles of wear, while the relaxed shape provides hours of comfort.

4. Flat Sandal:
The Splendid Cantina Flat Sandals are the perfect flat. Leaving gladiators behind, this season’s flat sandals are streamlined and sleek. Splendid styled the Cantina Sandals with a slim ankle strap for just a hint of the gladiator gone by. Style with a maxi dress or any short, as well as your colored crops.

5. White Skinny Jeans:
DL1961 Angel Ankle Jeans are crisp white and speaks of summer. Shedding the grays and blacks of winter, the white cropped jean works well with brights and lights. Pair with a blouse and blazer for work or a simple tank and flat sandal for weekend wear.

6. Structured Satchel:
Cambridge Satchel Classic 11″ Satchel, rethink structure. Not just for work and school, structure is also for weekend and play. Combining a bold gold color with a traditional satchel shape, this wear-with-all works anywhere you take it. Brighten up a monotone look or work it in with prints.

7. Navy Blazer:
This Smythe One Button Blazer is a must have piece. Princess Kate sparked a style craze with her Smythe blazer last summer, reigniting a classic. Whether you wear it back to a prim pencil skirt like royalty or over a roughed up pair of cutoffs, the navy blazer flatters all your looks.

Spring Denim Trends

Spring Fashion Denim Trends

Alessandra Ambrosio paves the way with her flares (seen above) and her shredded skinnies. Spring Denim Trends 2014 is here! I’m laying out the denim trends today, after studying the denimwear of celebrity fashionistas this month. First up are flares, a welcome departure from skinnies in the classic style of the 1970s. Still major trends from last year are cropped jeans and colored jeans, both fun options that can be styled preppy, flirty or sexy. And fresh for this year: denim in any kind of print, shredded skinnies, and the long, rolled denim short. Enjoy playing with these spring denim trends, especially for the fast-approaching weekend!

1. (Flares) Étoile Isabel Marant Abelo Low-Rise Flared Jeans: In the style of the 1970′s, Alessandra Ambrosio brings back the sexy flared jean. Pair with a cropped top (not too short) or tuck in a boho blouse, flares are best worn with the waistline in sight to create balance and showcase your curves.

2. (Shredded) CURRENT/ELLIOTT Shredded Fling Jeans: Shredded jeans are definitely meant for Saturdays. Balance the extreme shredding with a trim knit and pointy toe pump, much the same you would a slouchy boyfriend jean.

3. (Colored) J Brand 620 Super Skinny Jeans: Watermelon pink? Yes, please! Speak to the coming colors of spring and summer with a pop-of-color jean. Choose your favorite hue and go from there. My favorite denim outfit pairs a pop color with a cool, chambray button up.

4. (Printed) J BRAND JEANS Hydrangea Print Powerstretch Jeans: Showcase your personality. If there was ever a piece to do it with, it’s with the printed jean. Pick a print that speaks to you, then pair with a demure top. I love the look of a print with a black background with a simple black top.

5. (Rolled Short) J BRAND JEANS Nash Jean Shorts: Fresh off the runways and onto the streets. The longer rolled jean short is a bit throwback and quite a bit mod. Pair this trend carefully with pretty pieces and feminine flats to balance out the dark, hardworking denim.

6. (Cropped) ADRIANO GOLDSCHMIED  The Stilt Roll-Up Jeans: Show off those ankles. The first skin to peek out of the snow, the ankle is the first part of the leg to get exposed after a long winter hibernating in jeans, tights, and leggings. Roll up a pair of skinnies or try out a pair already rolled for you! Ankle skimmers are adorable with flats or heeled booties or the first sandals of the season.

6 Spring Break Essentials

March 21, 2014 | Heather

Those of us fortunate enough to escape their current surroundings—especially if those surroundings involve mid-March freezing temperatures—know that the only worrisome thing about vacation is living out of a suitcase. I, for one, find it impossible to predict what I will want to wear even 24 hours in advance, so I normally don’t skip town without a backpack and a duffel bag in each hand. This year, however, I will attempt the simplicity the beach calls for with this packing list of the absolute essentials.

In the suitcase: Paige Denim shorts, a CHRLDR T-shirt, Steven espadrilles, a Lemlem cover-up, a Kushcush swimsuit, and a Kate Spade New York pouch.

A swimsuit is obvious, but the right one for the trip? Less so. Choose one that flatters your body type. Cutout styles are on-point this season, but I make sure to also pack a classic string bikini for optimal tanning. I love this reversible Kushcush swimsuit—go from neutral to neon in an instant! And don’t forget a breezy cover-up in complementary colors.

A good graphic tee can be worn a hundred different ways—dressed up or down, tucked, rolled, etc. That is why, after agonizing indecision, I typically pack only one. This CHRLDR T-shirt looks super-chic with cutoff shorts or knotted over a sundress.

Denim shorts, especially a minimalist pair in a versatile wash, can be worn every single day of a trip. I suggest a mid or high rise for crop top-lovin’ gals, but there’s nothing cooler than a slouchy distressed pair, like these Paige Denim shorts, worn with a little bikini top.

Since shoes take up precious luggage space, it’s important to choose wisely. A simple pair of sneakers or espadrilles goes a long way. While comfort isn’t usually my primary consideration in choosing footwear, it becomes a vacation requirement for an unabashed tourist like myself. I could walk miles in these Won Hundred slip-ons. They’re neutral enough for daily wear, and a subtle metallic glaze adds enough glam for the evening bonfire.

A sundress is a vacation must. I love this coral lace Lovers + Friends dress. During the daytime, it can be paired with sneakers and a floppy hat for a shopping trip, and in the evening, strappy sandals and minimal jewelry make it luau-ready.

Choose a durable bag to serve several purposes. I usually opt for a medium-sized canvas bag that I can take with me on the plane, bring to the beach, and carry as a purse in a pinch. What’s inside? A classic pair of aviators, a simple wallet in a springy hue, drop earrings to instantly give a sundress an evening-ready feel, and collapsible headphones—portable and perfect for blocking out the loud snorer I’ll inevitably be seated next to on the plane.

Get The Look: Katie Cassidy

March 20, 2014 | Heather

Need inspiration? Draw some from Katie Cassidy. This model, actress and new blogger is a certified style maven. If you don’t know much about this up-and-comer, she’s the creative force behind one of my favorite new blogs: Tomboy KC. I’m a huge fan of Cassidy’s manifesto which states, “We prefer sneakers, but collect stilettos; love makeup, but hate being made up…We live in men’s shirts – sometimes purchased, more often ‘borrowed.’” It’s one of those men’s shirts that inspired this blog, a plaid one to be exact. Get Katie Cassidy’s look by layering a tough plaid shirt with distressed white skinnies. Add pointy-toed stillettos, a structured bag and a cozy beanie atop romantic waves. For her glowing skin, check out this blog for fresh, glowing skin to match Katie’s. That’s it: low fuss, huge impact.
