How To Wear A Waist- Tie Shirt

Already bored of the good old tank top for the summer? Try the waist-tie shirts. Cool, carefree and casually chic- a tie waist shirt is a good alternative for a T-shirt or a buttoned up shirt. Update a denim skirt look like Eva Mendes and Kirsten Dunst or style it with a jeans like Selena Gomez and Sofia Vergara. Or make a pair of shorts like million bucks like Jennifer Lopez and Taylor Swift. Any which way you style a waist tie shirt, you are sure to secure the fashionista title with a stylish knot!

To incorporate this popular summer trend in your wardrobe, choose form a 70s style chambray shirt or this season's hottest trend - chiffon and silk prints. Print or solid, neutral or bright, make a bow or leave the ends loose-  options are endless! Here are some of my favorites-

1. Paisley print waist-tie shirt -
2. Multicolor waist -tie shirt - Macy's
3. Flower print waist -tie shirt - Forever 21

 1. Red waist-tie shirt - Lord & Taylor
2. Cropped black waist-tie shirt - ASOS
3. Yellow peek a boo shoulder waist-tie shirt -
4. Chambray waist-tie shirt - Forever21

See anything that has you up in the knots??

My Fashion (And Comfort) Do-Over Moment!

I consider myself a person who does not regret much in life! I am as happy-go-lucky as they come! I believe life is a series of experiences, good or bad, happy or sad, exciting or dull - finally all the things you see, do and feel make you the person you are, the person your are supposed to be! But there are moments when you wish for a second chance or a do-over! If not to change the outcome of the event, then just to make the experiences a little better! So when I got a chance to share a do-over moment by Frigidaire, the first thing that came to my mind was a June 2011 evening in Evanston - the day my husband graduated from Business School at Kellogg School Of Management! It was a warm day and the commencement speech was delivered by none other than Stephen Colbert of Colbert Nation. The festivities started early in the day and I dressed up as a proud wife in my Sunday best - a beautiful strapless silk dress! The thing I didn't realize was that Chicago area weather tends to be moody, and Spring evenings tend to be on the cooler side, even in June! 
Here I am on the stands just before the temperature started to drop! Luckily, my daughter's had her jacket in the bag!
By the time the grads walked up in the huge stadium to receive their degrees, it was late afternoon and I was rubbing my palms up and down my arms, shivering a bit with the breeze and honestly hoping the ceremony would just speed up!! That day I realized the power of summer-layering! The easy style where you are ready for 15 degree temperature change and still look fabulous!

In the end I had fun, enjoyed seeing my husband being cheered on and felt the swell of pride in my heart for the smartest guy I know! But a soft wrap or a summer cardigan would have made that experience a whole lot better! Given a do-over chance, I'd take my favorite shrug with me! Speaking of do-overs - The Frigidaire Gallery™Dishwasher gets dishes fully cleaned the first time, so there are no dish do-overs. Nearly half of adults admit to re-washing and/or re-drying dishes after the dishwasher cycle has been completed. To prevent dishwasher do-overs, Frigidaire® is stepping in with its new Gallery® Dishwasher featuring the OrbitCleanTM Wash Arm, ensuring dishes are cleaned right the first time. Don't you love when you get thing right the first time!!!
Do you have an event or an incident or a part of your life which you will do-over given a chance? If you do, share it on Frigidaire Facebbok Page. For each do over Frigidaire will donate $1 to Save The Children!

Happy Father's Day!

Happy father's day to the first man I ever loved - my dear dad!
No, he doesn't smoke anymore, I think it was the 70s 'cool factor'!

He is the guy-
Who gave me his unconditional love, support and a sense of security that nurtured me into a confident person.
...and he is an awesome grandfather to my little kid!
Whose deep love and respect towards my mother made me believe in 'happily-ever-after'!

Who read my first ever poem and beamed with pride as if I wrote a Pulitzer prize worthy book!

Who taught me to be kind.

Who taught me how to debate and agree to disagree without being mean.

Who made me set my standards high (really high) for a man!

And that's how I chose wisely the best guy ever as my 'baby-daddy'!!;-) Love both the men in my life with all my heart!
Happy father's day to this guy - who makes my heart melt when he smiles, 'loses' a snowball fight to a  5 year old, and soothes with his sweet words!

 Happy Fathers day to dads everywhere!

Old Navy Swimwear 2012 - Splash In Style

Summer is almost upon us. Are you ready for some fun in the water? Whether you take a dip in the ocean, swim laps in the pool or simply lie on a sandy beach soaking the summer sun - a stylish swim suit is a summer wardrobe essential. Finding a great swimsuit that looks good, flatters your body and doesn't leave you bankrupt can be a little challenging. Well, you can breath easy for Old Navy have got a great line up of swimwear for the whole family! You can find swimwear for every body type at Old Navy. Here are Style Delights tips for buying a swimsuit that really suits your body!

For Flattening The Tummy
Aren't we all looking for a flat tummy! Tummy control panels at the front instantly flattens and smooths out the belly area for a flattering shape. Ruched or shirred swimsuits also smooth out the belly area. Old Navy got the swimsuits with built-in supportive Control Max liner that keeps you in while you're lying out.

For Full Coverage 
Two piece swimsuits with tankini top and boy shorts also work great if you want more coverage. To lounge around the pool or on the beach, a sheer maxi or a tunic covers up well and still looks sexy and stylish.

For Gaining A Fuller Chest
Bikini tops with frills or fringes or metallic embellishment give the illusion of a fuller chest. Old Navy have bikini tops with removable foam padding inserts that  give the illusion of a bustier chest. Push up bikini/tankini tops are also great to gain cleavage.

For Hour Glass Figure
For women blessed with (or who work really hard for) an hour glass figure (jealous sigh!), you can rock these string bikinis from Old Navy!

For Pear Shaped Figure
For women with pear shaped bodies, shopping for swimwear can be a challenge. If you have a pear shape body, buy tops and bottom separately. You may be a small in the top, but you may need a medium or large size for bottoms. Look for high thigh-cut bottom to elongate the legs and details and patterns that focus on waist/top to balance out the wide bottom. A bright top and dark bottom combination also draws attention to the top. Avoid a lot of ruffles/embellishment on the bottom.

Swimwear For Little Girls
Here are some of my favorite Old Navy swimwear picks for the little ones! Can't wait for the 'mommy and me' fun in the pool with my little mermaid!
