Cut it Out

Sweet and sexy cutout dresses for day and night

In innovative art and fashion, there’s value in negative space.

Sometimes what makes a dress is what’s not actually there. When you want to step it up a notch in the dress department, instead of going for a shorter hem or lower neckline, look for a frock with clever cutouts. Subtly sexy and tastefully chic, a cutout dress will add an alluring air to your look without the annoyance of adjusting it every five minutes. See a handful of our favorite cutout styles for day and night below, from an a-line denim dress to a black lacy slip.

Checklist for when feeling crappy
  1.  Is it late at night? Try to go to sleep. If it’s stressful try some white noise or audiobook or something, or just lay down but don’t turn off the lightsIf it’s not working, keep going with the list and try again later
  2. Are you cold? If yes, put on a sweater, or some socks, or a tuque and gloves if necessary
  3. When was the last time you ate? If it was more than three hours ago, go find something to eat
  4. Have a sip of water
  5. Have you taken your meds/vitamins today?
  6. Have you done any bit of exercise today? If not, do something, even if it’s small. Choose a short workout from Darebee or take dog for a walk
  7.  Have you showered in the last two days? Take a shower (or a bath if that feels right). If, once you’re in exfoliating sounds like a good idea, do that. If, once you’re out, moisturizing sounds like a good idea, do that.
  8. If it’s daytime, are you dressed? Put some comfy or otherwise feel-good clothes on
  9. Do you have any homework or similar pressing work to do? Spend five minutes working on that. Maybe you’ll get into the flow and do more, but if not, no biggie
  10. If you have pets, have you cared for them today? Check and make sure their spaces are clean and they have food and water. Pet and play with them
  11. Have you hugged anyone today? Go hug someone. If no people are available hug a pet, if no pets are available find a teddy bear
  12.  Is your living space clean? Spend five minutes tidying or cleaning something
  13. Have you done anything creative today? Try that for five minutes
  14.  Have you talked to anyone today? Even if no one’s around physically, send a text to a friend at least

Rereading Harry Potter now and wondering why the first movie didn’t, like the book, start with a long sequence in which Vernon Dursley goes about his day looking at Things He Doesn’t Understand, including strangely dressed people, Daytime Owls, and Suspicious Cats, and scowling at them

Sugar Baby Style Summer ‘16

A LOT of you beauties ask me what to wear on a POT date in the summer, so I actually reached out to my SD and asked him what he likes that I’ve worn this summer. So here we go:

1.For Casual (lunches, coffee dates, meet and greets)

~Summer Fun~

I always get criticized for looking too “business like” on dates (I blame this on me having lived in DC for too long), but since you’re young and fun I highly recommend you play that up. Bright colors, show some leg (but not too much) (; and it’ll be easy for him to spot you that first time you meet.

2. Daytime dates

I recommend dressing youthful but fashion forward ( I HOPE you’re going somewhere chic) show off your edgier side with a constructed outfit but natural free flowing hair and a classic pair of sun glasses. Especially in a city you will blend in, yet your gorgeous look will make you stand out and your POT won’t be able to keep his eyes (or hands off of you). At the same time though, ALWAYS keep it classy (:

3. Nigh time dates

My personal favorite, this is where you can really show off your sexy side (if you choose to). My daddy LOVES when I wear white in the summer (I have an olive complexion) and a jumpsuit will FOR SURE show off your body. Again, it’s classic but sexy. The white hue will make you stand out, but with natural makeup and flowy hair you’ll look like a goddess

I hope this helps and best of luck babies!!!

Heels or flats?

Heels. I’m 5’1” — I need that height!

What’s your #1 “going out” outfit?

If I’m in LA, it’s pretty much casual so a cute pair of jeans, nice pair of heels that are not too dressy or too high and a cute top. Could be a crop top or a flowy tank top.

What’s your perfect brunch outfit?

I would say a cute daytime dress, like a maxi dress or a romper.

What’s your traveling/ airport outfit?

I’m all about comfort so it’s either leggings and a top or sweats and a sweater. Jeans on a plane — no way it’s just uncomfortable.

LOTD: Chris Hemsworth

The GQ cover star looks sharp in a casual suit

With multiple films coming out this year, including Blackhat and Avengers: Age of Ultron, and a skill for slick style, it’s safe to say that Chris Hemsworth is on a roll. One of his latest looks says it all. Spotted in New York City this month, he wore a subtle blue suit with a gray shirt, dress shoes and a classic pair of aviators, proving that great style stems from keeping it simple. Take a cue from Chris and keep in mind that a more casual suit can easily be worn from day to night with the simple swap of a shirt. Copy this look with our similar items below for the next time you want to look extra clean cut.

Eddie Redmayne inspires Britain’s men to dust off their suits

Office workers are abandoning “daytime pyjamas”, as smartly-dressed actors  fuel demand for formalwear

Formalwear sales have soared as office workers have abandoned “dress-down  Fridays” to emulate Redmayne, according to the latest figures from  Debenhams. The Hollywood actor, who has modelled for the fashion house  Burberry, was last month named the best-dressed man by GQ magazine.

Sales of suits rose by 52 percent at the department store last month compared  to the same period last year. Demand for its ties and formal footwear  increased by more than a quarter, and it sold 22 percent more collared  shirts.

The kind of news I love to be associated with Eddie, that of a role model.
