Sorry guys, we’re Celebrating MGM this Monday!

“You can’t wear a tank top two days in a row, and you can only wear your hair in a ponytail once a week. Oh, and we only wear jeans or track pants on Fridays. Now, if you break any of these rules, you can’t sit with us at lunch.” -Gretchen Wieners

Happy Mean Girls Monday! In celebration of this auspicious occasion, I want you to think back to the first time you watched this amazing teen chic flick. I remember watching this movie and how much I couldn’t wait to get to school the next day and tell my friends about it.

Recently, I decided to watch this movie again and here’s what I got from watching it (as an adult who can quote this entire movie).

  1. Learn to roll with the punches: Life is full of unfortunate events, it’s up to you to go with it and continue to live or you can cry your eyes out and quit. In this case channel your inner Regina George. She was the goddess of not caring about other thought of her. Did your twist out not turn out right and you only have about 15 minutes left until you have to leave for work. Who cares, transform those wet curls into a cute up do or puff and beat your face. Life zip, blackgirlmagic 1 point.

2. Exactly what he said!

3. Remember, no matter how old your mom gets, she’s going to want to barrow a sweater or want to know what’s “hip.” Just keep her in the loop and it’s a little less embarrassing. Mom’s are great, everyone want’s a “cool” mom.

4. Chase the things you want in life. Your dreams won’t become realities if all you do is dream about them.

5. Accept that you’re perfectly flawed. We were created with a sense of uniqueness. Love what makes you different. You can complain everyday but nothing is going to change. Embrace yourself and others will embrace you too.

As a tween, mean girls was the best for all the wrong reasons. Every girl wanted to rule their school but with the wrong attitude. Watching this movie as an adult is just as funny, but mainly because you realize that either you were these girls, you hated these girls or you wanted to be these girls. What ever category you fall under, just remember on Wednesday we were pink!

As the fall approaches, its time to switch from summer drab to fall fab! The fashion focus this fall will be western fashions, cozy knits, over-size coats, a resurgence of 60s fashions, and trendy sneakers. So let’s get started…

1. Getty  up cowboy! Or should I say cowgirl? A chic all black ensemble topped with a super cute cowboy hat will really give you that edgy look you’ve been looking for. So bring on the rodeo and show off your best Western look.

2. It’s a sock for your neck, better known as a turtleneck. Now I’m sure you’re probably already turned off by the fact that it’s a turtleneck, but no worries! Designers have made these extreme turtlenecks a lot more trendy to match your needs. Not to mention the fact that they keep you warm. With there being so many styles it’s almost impossible for anyone not to find the right one just for them.

3.  The larger the coat the warmer you’ll be. If this past winter taught me anything, it’s to simply bundle up. Over-sized coats are becoming so much more trendy. To save a little extra money when buying one try shopping at the outlet stores. This is a perfect time to find a nice heavy duty coat at a reasonable price. This fall/winter they’ll definitely come in handy when you’re trying to hide those few extra pounds. The bigger the coat the better!

4. A blast from the past is what I like to call this trend. Mini skirts, knee-high boots, and retro accessories are making a statement this season. Let’s cal it yesteryear because the 60s are swinging back in major way. A mini skirt paired with a sassy bodysuit and a pair of chic knee-high boots will surely have you turning heads when you walk-by.

5. Finally, ladies you can finally give your feet a break from those six-inch pumps and switch to the comfy sneakers. I don’t know how you ladies did it with wearing heels almost everyday, but kudos to you.

 Lucky for your feet, designers have declared sneakers the footwear of the season. Make sure they’re trendy and compliment your outfit well.

Well that’s all I have for you today! Here’s a great fashion quote that I would like to leave you with: Oscar de la Renta said, “Fashion is about dressing according to what’s fashionable, style is more about being yourself.”
