FISHNETS + transforming from low vibe to high vibe (tantric)

The last time I wore fishnets before this year, was Halloween.

YUP - Slutty Halloween costumes from back in the DAY required fishnets.

For some reason they've gotten a bad rap, but I am SO GLAD they are back. SO glad. It's very Rhianna, very street, and subtle sexy.

I love them under a miniskirt, or under your ripped jeans just a little peak-a-boo moment with a sexy detail.

All about a good detail. 

So, I had to share my favorite new thing, accessory, fishnets with ya. 

Along with my new favorite WORD right now.

I think for each month or year, you need a word to represent it.

Last year, for me, was 'golden'. 

YUP. It may not mean something to you, but it means something to me - when I hear it, I think about being a bright-ass shining light for all to see. 

So, this year I didn't have my word until the Almost 30 Podcast episode with Jenna Zoe (The Human Design Reader). Firstly, she BLEW MY MIND. Human Design Reading is new, and basically tells you information about yourself so you're better able operate in the world.

(That's the serious cliffs notes version).

But, she said I have a very tantric quality.

(NOT SEXUAL BUT KINDA HEHE).

Tantric as in, I can change situations from low vibration to high vibration.

YUP.

ALL ABOUT THAT HIGH VIBE BABY.

So, going into EVERY situation thinking about shifting the energy so it feels better for everyone. It's better conversation, better outcome, more purpose...

TANTRIC.

Also just a little side note, I feel like I haven't been sharing as much deep stuff with you lately, but that's just because I've been traveling a lot the past month. Will be back to more inspiration, etc. soon.

You da best,

IS IT SPRING YET? Blush tones + giving what you want to receive

Holllyyyyy guacamole y'all I am BACK FROM ZE DEAD.

Back in action after the flu got me (even though I say, "I never get sick!" ALL THE TIME).

How are you though? Hoping 2017 feels good for ya!

Any tips for me? Let me know :)

I'm writing this post from inspiration I received from a podcast I was on recently with Lindsey, T&A Talk Sex.

It was SO FUN.

And also, I am all sorts of bashful talking about sex. 

Seriously, LOL, I don't think you'd think it, but for some reason I get real shy talking about sex shit. Especially since I'm in a committed relationship with Justin, and wanna keep our life private ya know?

But I spilled a little :) nothing crazy but had a lot of fun on the podcast answering questions from their guests on dating older guys, and the Uber sexual harassment case....

You can listen to it here!

But the part about it that was so good, was hearing Christina talk about giving what you want to receive.

Yes, seems counter intuitive right?

But as an example, if you're wanting more love and attention from your honey, instead of begging or requesting it, give them that attention that you crave. 

If you're feeling a bit insecure about yourself, think about giving a compliment to someone else. 

SO GOOD RIGHT?

I LOVE this, and try to practice or or think about it with all my relationships. If I am feeling off or want something, I am trying to give it first before asking for it.

I love what Gabrielle Bernstein says about this, via

"Take a close look at what you’ve been longing to receive and ask yourself; is this something I’m not giving? By taking an honest inventory you’ll come to see how your actions have been reflected back to you.

Once you’re clear about what you’ve been withholding it’s time to give it. Give the love you’ve been denying, give the forgiveness to the person you’ve been resenting, give the attention to the health you’ve been ignoring. Give what you want to receive and feel your energy shift."

YAS.

So good right?

Take it sisters and USE THIS :)


Okay so to the outfit deets for this one, I LOVE THIS LOOK. 

Good blush tones, love how casual, and that you can wear it almost any season in L.A. I feel like it's the most feminine thing right now to add some blush in your life. I'm not usually a feminine dresser (more edgy) but I love how it makes me...feel? LOL. 

Shania Twain plays, "Man, I feel like a woman". HA. 

You know I'm a huge fan of ASOS and Free People, plus I shared this natural make-up look.

I'm getting so excited for spring, even though in L.A. the winter isn't so bad :).

What are your favs for spring, friends?

Also thoughts on giving when you want to receive? I'm into it - FOSHO.

Have da best week! Loving you,

Dressing for your body type can change the game for your look + this dress from Free People

Oh hello you!

I need to give a shout out for the babes that can dress for their body type. Like, mad respect girl, you did your homework, you actually pay attention when you’re shopping to silhouettes and styles and you stick with what works.

And it pays off because you look amazing.

I’ve been thinking really that mumu’s are my favorite style, but that also could just be cop-out to finding an actual body type of styles to fit me, HA.

What made me really think about this was this Free People Dress, which really surprised me because I felt like the cut and style, which probably would be flattering on anyone to be honest, felt really made for me. I love the low in the front and back, to show off the shoulders and clavicle, and then not fitted through the body, and short, made it super comfortable and in my eyes flattering.

When in doubt show off your clavicle am I right?

Plus, I could eat and drink all night, and was FINE.

Major KEY.

I wanted to do a little bit of research and find the best dresses or styles for everybody type and share it with you. Helpful for me, helpful for you, it’s an updated guide to finding the styles that give you that extra edge to look and feel your best.


Determining your body type

I love to use this Who What Wear Guide below which is a few simple questions to determine your body type. I mean, I think we all can fit into a few different categories at some stages in our life (I think I've been a banana before and also a rectangle (LOL). 

I think really it's not about putting yourself into a category at all, but more about finding clothes, cuts and brands that really work for you. Those that accentuate you and work to make you feel fucking good when you are wearing it. 

When I do stick to a loose guideline of certain styles. I notice I feel slimmer, I feel happier and I wear those clothes more. 

That's what wearing clothes for your body type is about. Finding what works for you, and working it.


Tips for styling for your body type:

Hourglass:

Cinching the waist is key! Belted jackets, or clothes that are fitted to show the curves work too. For curvy, I think it's good to show off the clavicle, and chest area. For the bottom, wearing flares or high waisted pants to show off that a$$ is also a good move. Also, the crop top and pencil skirt is a classic - Kim K all the way. 

Wrap Dresses

Pencil Skirts

Crop Tops

Belted Dresses

Belted Jackets


Apple:

Show off the shouilders and legs baby. This is my LIFE. The key here if this is you is hiding or sliming the midsection. Short dresses work, long sleeves work and anything that can help accenutate the best parts of ya bod.

Shift Dresses

Flowy Tops

Low Waisted Straight Leg Pants


Athletic: 

Highlight the thinnest part of your body, your waist to make it more proportional to the rest of ya. Athletic is generally all the same size at hips, bust and waist. 

Ruffle Tops

Bomber Jackets

Side Cut Out Dresses and Tops

High Waisted Dress Pants

Mini Skirts


Triange (Pear Shape): 

You're basically J.Lo and have hips that don't lie, and that are the widest part of your body. Often times pear shape have a butt, smaller shoulders and broader hips. It's key to show off your ASSets, and accentuate your smaller upper body.

Off The Shoulder Tops

Fit and Flare 

A-Line Skirt

Detailed Top

Structured Jacket

Boot Cut Pants


Triangle: 

This is you if your shoulders and bust are larger than your hips. I am sometimes a triangle, and it's key to show off the shoulders rather than cover and hide them, because they can often look bigger. Often triangles love their legs, and waist because they are the smaller parts of their body. 

Fitted Jackets

A-line dresses

A-line skirts

Skirts that skim your bottom half

V-neck sweaters and shirts

Skinny Jeans



Shop the post:

Free People Sylvia Mini Dress

Stuart Weitzman Nudist Sandal

Here I am wearing this Free People dress that I feel like truly fits my body type.

I'm comfortable in it, it's soft and flowy and it shows off the body parts I like (my legs and chest) and then hides what I don't like as much (stomach and upper bat wing area). The beading is so detailed and feminine, with the blush it's basically flattering on anyone. Plus it's really unique and expensive looking. Highly recommend this in any of the colors.

The sandals, are worth it. You need a good nude heel for all formal actiivites (or 100 weddings) and these are a classic. 


Anything I missed? What do you normally wear for your body type?

For me, I feel like my body type changes, HA, but sticking to the ones closest too it definitely helps me look and feel my best.

Let me know what yours is and what you wear for it!

Have the best week loves!
