Fashion Hour, With Your Host, Me

When it comes to being an enviable fashionista, there are a few key rules to remember when you’re digging through your closet in the morning. They are rules that I live by, and so I’m going to share them with you today…

DO: make sure that your hair is bigger than your crown. Especially if you live in the south. It’s just proper.

DON’T: follow fads. Because as soon as you get that mullet haircut with Elvis sideburns, it’s gonna go right outta style.


DO: embrace color coordination. It’s a fashion fact for a reason–it works! (Yes, even if that means wearing purple socks.)

DON’T: wear this sweater. Ever. Just burn it. Trust me.


DO: commit fully to whatever style you are rocking. Don’t do anything half-assed. Go for the whole enchilada, or stay home ladies.


DON’T: use a mixing bowl as a guideline for your next hair-do. The end result is not pretty.


DO: pay close attention to detail. Accessories are a must. (Dinosaurs may be extinct, but they never go out of style.)

DON’T: forget to be mindful of your surroundings. Where you are being photographed is just as important as what you’re wearing. Heaven forbid if the background clashes with your well-thought-out ensemble.

And finally, the most important rule in my fashion toolbox is this: no matter what you’re wearing, no matter what the situation, the most important accessory to remember is your smile.
(Even if your dress is too big and your hair style makes you look like a kindergarten teacher.)

Today’s post was inspired, once again, by our favorite blogger, Alex, from Late Enough. I’m a total blog topic poacher, but she doesn’t seem to mind. For now. Hopefully she won’t sic zombies on me when the apocalypse finally arrives…
