All-American Girl: Ann Taylor Summer 2014

Breezy white skirts, nautical stripes, crisp dresses and strappy sandals: For Ann Taylor’s Summer 2014 collection, Creative Director Lisa Axelson was inspired by the idea of the all-American girl summering  in Positano, Italy.




Continuing from spring, the new summer collection is grounded in neutral tones with touches of pale menswear colors. Think American classics modernized with a European touch.  White on white takes a new spin by layering texture on texture, full skirts are given a fresh take when styled with a strappy sandal and linen shorts are elevated with a high heel.

What to Wear to a HOT Summer wedding!

Hi She She!!  I am going to a casual outdoor wedding next month and wanted to know if it is okay for me to wear a pair of dressy white capris and a nice blouse.   I don't like showing my legs (due to scars), and wanted your opinion on bottoms to wear.  Keep in mind, it will be in South Carolina; where it is HOT!  Suggestions would be welcome.  Thank you! 

Taylor

Hi Taylor!

Aren't summer weddings fabulous?  I just adore outdoor weddings, and one of the benefits is that they are usually a bit more on the casual side due to the venue.

A pair of dressy capri pants and a gorgeous top is absolutely acceptable.  I would suggest finding capris in a luxurious fabric - perhaps a light brocade or lined linen. If the fabric is lightweight, be certain that the capris are lined, no one wants VPL (visible panty line) marring the look of the ensemble.


Another option would be a skirt in a longer length - there are so many gorgeous maxi's and mid-calf length styles out there this season!  Again, I would opt for something in a lighter weight, perhaps even an embellished gauze or cotton blend.


As for tops, go with something dressy, in a silky or chiffon fabric, perhaps with embellishment.  To keep things cool, opt for a sleeveless top or something airy.  Depending upon the fit of your trousers or skirt, your top should be just the opposite.  For instance, if you go with a pair of form fitting capris, then opt for a more flowing or airy top.  If you go with a loose or fuller skirt, pair it with a more fitted top.

For footwear, I would go with a pair of gorgeous wedge sandals.  Outdoor venues tend to have unstable surfaces (grass, gravel pathways, sand, etc) and wedges are the safest (and most styish!) way to go






Keep cool and have a fabulous time  - I know you will look just gorgeous!!

Toss the Gloss: Beauty Tips, Tricks & Truths for Women 50+

In a career spanning more than forty years, Andrea Q. Robinson has revolutionized the way women look and the way they feel about beauty. From her early days as Beauty Editor of Vogue to more recently running the Ralph Lauren Fragrance business and building the Tom Ford Beauty brand from scratch, Robinson’s professional mission has been to help women look like themselves, only better. 

Available now Robinson’s Toss the Gloss: Beauty Tips, Tricks & Truths for Women 50+ shares her decades of experience in an honest, straightforward informational book for women fifty and over. Part memoir, part how-to, and part industry insider guide, Toss the Gloss reveals the tricks of the trade about skincare and makeup, and shares a template for maximizing a woman’s authentic, signature beauty by embracing her features – not hiding them. 

This book will impart Robinson’s simple beauty truths that will stand with women for life – truths that will separate the hype from the helpful; truths that will help determine how to pick the right product and avoid the wrong; truths that will make the difference between looking okay and looking great. Unlike other books in this genre, Toss the Gloss isn’t about looking young and hip – it is about owning your look at 50 and beyond, and how to inhabit the style and beauty that can come more effortlessly with age. 

After reading Toss the Gloss, the reader will: 

  • Understand the core reasons why the right cosmetics, not anti-aging skincare, will help her look her best; 
  • Learn how to choose the key cosmetic products and which brands can do the most for her; 
  • Learn how to enhance her features without needles and knives; 
  • Acquire valuable, easy to follow, gimmick-free tips and application shortcuts; 
  • Become a discerning and confident beauty shopper; 
  • ap into some of the best dirt, dish and behind the scenes gossip of the beauty industry. 


“Forget about makeup reclaiming youth, good makeup reclaims you,” Robinson says. “At the risk of inciting a powder puff tempest,” Robinson declares, “A good cosmetic product well-chosen and well-applied will do more for you than any pricey jar of miracle cream. Armed with a few simple tricks, some tips about the way the beauty industry works and, most importantly, the right makeup, you can transform 50+ into forever fabulous.”
