Style Trend - Cut Out Shoulders

Good enough for Diane Kruger, good enough for me! The latest style trend this summer is all about chic cut-out shoulder tops and dresses. I got mine from Lauren Conrad line for Kohls' (in sale for $13- SCORE!) I have never watched her reality show, but have to say I love her line of clothing at Kohl's! Pair this floral cut out shoulder blouse with cut off shorts for a casual look. Wear it with a skinny jeans, add a statement necklace (like this Retro acrylic necklace) and a cute pair of flats for a more polished look.

I am in love with this cool necklace - the color goes with everything and the clean lines look sophisticated enough to take from day to night. All the pieces in the necklace are movable, that create a soft, fluid fall at the neck. The best part - it sells for only $13.68 and FREE shipping! If you are boutique owner or a bulk buyer, they offer even lower prices! Check out their shopping portal, they are a part of trusty wholesale brand

Get Your Glasses On - Review

Ever since I was a little girl, I have been wearing glasses. I wore them because I had to, and my dad thought I looked smart in them (he thinks I am smart!) I still need glasses and usually wear contact lenses, but I love a trendy pair of frame that really transforms a face. Growing up in India (in a small town) in the 80s, 'girls with glasses' was not a very fashionable concept. (specially if you plan to marry soon! *snicker*) But with the dawn of 21st century, cool eyeglasses have become the in-thing! I mean look at Anne Hathaway, Tina fey, Justin Timberlake, Megan Fox and countless other trendsetters!
I believe finding a great pair of frames like the stars should not break the bank. That's where comes in handy. They not only have stylish and high quality frames and lenses, they also offer the lowest price guarantee and a 100% satisfaction guarantee. They asked me to try out a pair of glasses from their site and experience their customer service first hand. I have to admit, I was little skeptical to buy glasses online as I have never tried it before. But hey, there is always a first time for everything! So I gave it a try, and I am so glad that I did!
I received a great pair of prescription glasses, their customer service was excellent (I had made a mistake in ordering but they fixed everything. I quickly got a call from their customer service representative and he helped me with my order in the most pleasant manner! Kudos to their customer satisfaction policy!) I got my glasses with the prescription lenses within days! I am sure you see a happy customer is the picture below!!
If you are looking for a pair of prescription glasses, prescription sunglasses or just a non prescription trendy eye wear do check out You can even can try the frames online before you buy! You can see right here, how cool their new try-them-on feature is!
Right now, you can take advantage of their special offer if you buy glasses form them -

I am so glad to find GlassesUSA to buy glasses, no more waiting for appointments or looking for the parking space at the strip mall!!:-)

I may not love team USA Ralph Lauren head gear (I mean American men in berets for crying out loud!!) but totally loving super model turned super mommy Miranda Kerr's fedora!

Summer Trend 2012 - Bird Prints

Pippa Middleton wore one to Wimbledon finals, Kate Middleton was ahead of the curve and wore it on her wedding eve and reused it last fall while visiting Canada! No, I am not talking about the Royal hats, but the latest, suddenly-everywhere bird prints. Unlike the leopard print or other animal prints, bird print is bold yet very delicate, pretty and feminine. Last year when designers and big brands like Marc Jacobs, Carolina Herrera, Jill Stuart and Tibi debuted their Spring 2012 line, bird prints were a big parts of of their collection. Spilling into this summer, bird prints have found their way on dresses, skirts, and tops and cute rompers. From pastel shades to navy blues and dark browns, these little birdies are beckoning us to take a fashion flight. Will you glide along?
