The Best Fendi Buggy Street Style Snaps of 2015

Fendi’s buggies have been a huge hit since making their debut a couple years ago.  Since then, they’ve expanded beyond their initial start as a playful bag accessory and made their way into clothing, shoes, and pretty much everything else in between.

8 Essential Style Tips Petite Girls Need to Know

As anyone who is deviates from the “average” range in apparel knows, it’s difficult to find things that will fit perfectly.  Being 5″2, I’ve struggled with finding things that actually fit right without having to enlist the help of a tailor for each item purchased.  Jeans, skirts, and sleeves are too long or too short…a maxi skirt will never fit you if you’re under 5″5…and seriously, what is up with “Petite” or “Short” jeans?  At 5″2, they have always looked like capris on me, making me wonder how short are the people they were created for?

Here are 8 shopping tips for my fellow shorty’s.  Or shawty’s.  Or, as my auto-correct would like to believe,  shanty’s (although I have no clue as to what shanty’s are).

petite shopping tips

Now that you know what to look for when shopping, here are my top picks of where to shop for petite clothing that fits perfectly:

Moderately-Priced Brands:

Express, J. Crew, Anthropologie, and Ann Taylor LOFT.

Contemporary/Bridge:

Theory, BCBG, J. Brand (I actually love their petite-sized denim!).

40 Fashion Mistakes You May Be Making

40 Fashion Faux Pas You Need to Stop Making Now

via DFWStyleDaily

via DFWStyleDaily

( 1 )

You believe white shouldn’t be worn after labor day.

Ladies, listen up: This is an antiquated rule that shouldn’t be followed. As countless designers and fashion stars have proved during the past few seasons, white isn’t only appropriate when the weather turns chilly, but also amazingly fresh and modern. One thing to keep in mind when tackling the white-in-winter trend: It’s all about the fabric. Lighter textiles such as white cotton, linen, canvas, and seersucker will look out of place during fall and winter, so be sure you’re reaching for white wool, cashmere, fur, mohair, flannel, silk, and leather.

You always buy the same size in clothes.

As any woman who’s shopped high-fashion and fast-fashion knows, sizing can vary tremendously according to store, brand, and item. Cheaper clothing typically runs way bigger, making it common for a woman to wear, say, a size Large at Forever 21, but still be a size 2 in Stella McCartney. Don’t sweat the number—pay attention to how things look on your body instead.

( 3 )

You wear retro pieces without a modern spin.

The perfect modern spin on a retro look.

The perfect modern spin on a retro look.

We all know that fashion is cyclical and that everything comes back around, but that doesn’t mean you should dress in full of-another-decade outfits, which could run the risk of making you look like you’re both in costume and 10 years older.

Love the look of a wild ’80s neon sweater you found at the Salvation Army? Leave the leggings and sneakers at home and opt for a pair of super-sleek skinny jeans, natural hair and makeup, and a great pair of ankle boots. Found a vintage swingy midi-skirt? Style it with modern staples like a cropped leather jacket and a sleek pair of pointy heels as opposed to wearing a pussy-bow blouse and pearls.

You think ‘dry clean only’ tags are always correct.

If a garment says it needs to be dry-cleaned, it won’t hurt to follow suit, but that can get pricey—especially since some items technically don’t need to be professionally cleaned. Many high-end brands that manufacture items in washable fabrics will often say “dry clean only”  to keep up the higher-end vibe. Furthermore, certain fabrics such as cashmere actually hold up better when they’re washed by hand as opposed to getting dry-cleaned. Here’s a good guide to help you figure out what doesn’t really have to be cleaned by a pro.

You believe tall women shouldn’t wear heels.

This mandate isn’t only silly, but a little sexist, too. Stemming from a whole bunch of antiquated notions including abundant height isn’t feminine, and a woman shouldn’t draw extra attention to herself, this rule is one no woman should ever follow if they don’t want to. We know plenty of women who are six feet tall and still rock killer heels with grace (ahem, Jenna Lyons, Charlize Theron, Michelle Obama, Karlie Kloss….)

You shop for Instagram

We hate to assume you’d buy anything simply so people know you own it, but such is the world in which we live. Are you buying that Balenciaga bag because you really, really love it, or because you want others to know you bought it? If you buy those Jimmy Choo pumps, will you be able to truly enjoy them without posting them to social media? If the answer is no, you might have some thinking to do about your shopping habits.

( 7 )

You avoid horizontal stripes like the plague.

via WorldFashionChannel

Buying into the notion that all horizontal lines make you look wide is a cliché mistake. Yes, we’ll admit that a skin-tight bodycon dress emblazoned with horizontal lines might only look good on a model, but pieces that are made well and fit well—think a classic cotton Breton striped shirt tucked into dark jeans, a ladylike full skirt with horizontal stripes, or a great striped overcoat—flatters every woman.

How To Pose Like a Fashion Blogger

p18g2387fn1obo1sij12moqosv0a4

It’s amazing how self-aware we become when a camera is pointed at us.  Suddenly, your arms seem like they’re 5 feet long, and what did you ever do with them before?  These awkward hands?  Why didn’t I pay more attention in Top Model when Tyra was explaining how to smize?!

Luckily for you, ModaMob analyzed 7 of the top street style bloggers, and their signature ways they like to strike a pose.  Take some inspiration from them, and soon, you’ll be comfortable enough in front of the camera to find your own unique style.

ModaMob explains the details:

The Man Repeller: The key here is not to look like you’re having fun, but to actually be having fun.

The Song of Style: This one’s all about legs. Turn slightly and lock your knees. Easy peasy.

The Fashion Toast: A great one if you’re camera shy – just tilt your head down and play it cool.

The Blonde Salad: Keep your body loose or else this one can look extremely pose-y.

The Style Bubble: Having an awkward moment? Go with it!

Gabi Fresh: This one’s our favorite; it’s not about what angle makes you look slimmer or taller. It’s about working it, plain and simple.

The Anna Dello Russo: You’re a rare bird of fashion, act like it.

Recently, I stumbled across a sushi-printed jacket, and had to track down the designer immediately.  It turns out, the jacket was the product a new fashion label known as Au Jour Le Jour.  The Italian label debuted in 2010 as brainchild of designers Mirko Fontana and Diego Marquez.

Their lines include both mens’ and womens’ wear, and prices range from $200 to over $1,000.  My personal favorites include this bus-printed skirt, this pair of sequin-embellished denim shorts, and this apple-print playsuit.

Hair How-To: The Low Messy Bun

Messy buns, the simple go-to hairstyle of celebrities, businesswomen, and the rest of the female population alike, look effortlessly chic and carefree.  Meet the low messy bun, a quick variation of the classic mess, yet with a new element of the same bohemian vibe.

Camilla Pihl

Use a texturizing spray (I highly recommend the cult classic from Oribe) to create beautiful beach waves.  Then, gather all your hair from behind, fold in half, and use a hair band to secure the bun.  Voila!
