I like being a woman!


"I like being a woman, even in a man’s world. After all, men can’t wear dresses, but we can wear the pants."
— Whitney Houston
The greatest voice of all truly knew what she was talking about. Sincerely Hana did a switcheroo with couples trading clothes and the pictures look a little outlandish. Women wearing men's clothing looks passable while men wearing women's clothing is quite comical. What do you think?

Style: Color blocking!

Color blocking was apparent in the fall/winter fashion scene with its bold color choices and now the trend is transitioning into the spring/summer seasons.


It's a tricky trend and there really isn't a wrong or right way to do it but there are some guidelines. Let us take a look at a basic color wheel.

The color wheel is used for interior decorating but it can also be used in fashion, especially if you need a little guidance. It's designed so that virtually any colors you pick from it will look good together. You can pick colors opposite  to each other (complementary) like blue and yellow; three colors next to each other (analogous) like purple, pink and red or colors that make a triangle (triadic) like purple, orange and green.


Let us now look at the styling of primary and secondary colors.


Primary colors: red, yellow and blue

Snow White was ahead of the fashion trend!

Secondary colors: greenorange and purple

If this trend is too tricky or you want to play it safe, choose a handbag, a dress or ampair of shoes that already does the Color blocking for you. 


Shoes are a fabulous and easy way to incorporate the trend into your spring and summer wardrobe without diving in head first!

Tia and Tamera's style!

We love Tia and Tamera and we get a sneak peek into their lives on their reality show on the Style Network. We used to watch Sister Sister all the time, "Go home Roger!" Ha ha...

They're funny, talented, gorgeous and don't seem to age. They're the perfect role models. While still acting and producing, they both manged to get psychology degrees at Perpperdine University, that is amazing!  

Their make-up is always flawless and we think their style is something to watch out for and get inspired by. 


They tweeted this picture yesterday (2/22) after their appearance on the new talk show The Revolution.
