WATCH Me IF You Can?

WATCHES are BACK!  They’re BACK in a BIG way…

When I was younger my mother always made sure I had a watch for special ‘going out’ occasions like church on Sundays but as I got older wearing a watch just sort of fell off my Style Radar… My cellphone is now my permanent time keeper.Recently I began to consider getting back into the traditional TIMEPIECE game…

Here are a few I’d like to tell time with:

Michael Kors has some really great options like these  Women’s Chronograph Acrylic Tortoise Shell and Marble-esque Bracelet watches $195 at and Macy’s

I’m also LOVING  the Michael KORS  BEL AIR Two Tone Acrylic and ROSE GOLD bands so FRESH for SUMMER White  is nice but can get dirty easily a clear band is GENIUS!!!

$195 and $225 Michael

Perhaps you’re thinking It’s officially SUMMER now and I want something that POPS on my wrist, right? If that’s the case you should be considering this Animal Toy Watch at Neiman Marcus or Bloomingdales $295, It’s a great timepiece that can add PIZAZZ  to your outfit.:

If you’re looking for a little more HARDWARE but still want  a CLEAN face… look no further I really like this Marc by Marc Jacobs chronograph MOLLY watch. The Hardware is BOLD but not overpowering or offensive. I think the Black and Golden is very versatile and translates with many outfits:

Neiman Marcus $225

Get MAXI-mum Glam…

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on May 4, 2011 by amstylearchitect

Can you get MAXI-mum use out of this dress trend?

Being a naturally vertically challenged woman (I buy my height) I usually stay away from longer hemlines that may be stature cropping.

The Maxi dress trend does have it’s lengthening advantages if worn  correctly! Worn the RIGHT way you will look like an absolute GODDESS…

If you’re short like me you may want to try wedges or a higher heel to elongate your frame when trying this trend.

If you’re a taller women or an average height woman with a long torso maxi dresses are really a great addition to your wardrobe. Taller women can wear this trend with gladiators and flat sandals fearlessly.

Make sure the hemline is NOT in between your calf and ankle, that is not a MAXI dress. Flowing past your ankle is where the maxi hemline should be…You don’t want to look like some cloth was forgotten off your dress.

Here are a few flattering dresses that give MAXI-mum style satisfaction:

This Alice & Olivia $245 Mena Printed Halter Maxi —

MILLY Caroline MAXI dress $495

Leifsdottir Jersey Bustier & Washed Maxi Skirt
