MEN’S FASHION CHOICES TO AVOID AT ALL COSTS
Women say these are the worst (with No. 1 being the worst)…
8. Short Pants – Things that don’t fit are not flattering.
7. Time or Region-Specific Accessories – Cowboy hats. Cowboy Boots. Bow Ties. Monocles. Ascots. If you are not a Cowboy, Crocodile Dundee, or from the 1800′s you should not be wearing any of these items.
6. Socks and Sandals
5. Skinny Pants
4. Plumber’s Crack
2. Jean Shorts
Some of the things I’ve heard growing up as a redhead: “You have a temper, don’t you?” “Oh, you’re a natural redhead? Don’t bees sting you more?” and, of course the most popular “Hey, Carrot Top” (which always bugged me because carrot tops are GREEN!)
Well, move over blondes, 2010 is looking to be the year for redheads! Redheads were all over the runways at 2010 Fashion Week! All shades of red, too! From Auburn to Cranberry and strawberry blondes, Red is the shade to go if you’re thinking of giving yourself a new look!
Think of some of the famous female redheads: Nicole Kidman (she DID get Keith Urban!), Julia Roberts, Julianne Moore, Marcia Cross, Lindsay Lohan, Alyson Hannigan, Lauren Ambrose, Debra Messing, Lucille Ball, Jo Dee Messina, Reba Mcintyre, Wilma Flinstone, Ariel, Cynthia Nixon and Geena Davis. I’m SURE I’m missing a bunch, but those are who came off the top of my head!
Here is the link from fashionising.com to get the PERFECT color (and attitude) to GO RED:
I, of course, say “GO FOR IT”!
This guy has done several video’s on Youtube that are all about Cowboy Boots. This is my favorite one!
He really knows his boots! Wanna know what kind of boots are right for you? There are so many to choose from! Watch this video FIRST before you get your “Boots On” (As Randy Houser would say!)
This morning Bo and I took over the morning show while the Cornbread Crew were recuperating from all the festivities.
We talked, of course, a lot about the CMA’s, and Bo brought up Leann Rimes and that she wasn’t looking so good.
Bo said he thought she had too much makeup on. At first I disagreed (don’t be dissin’ on LeAnn!) But…I looked again, and as much as I hate to admit it…Bo’s right!
Check out the picture! LeeAnn looks like she’s trying to be cast in the next Twilight Movie!!! Did LeeAnn make a Denim & Diamonds Fashion Faux Pas?
This, to me, is funny, strange and weird! With Halloween coming up, there are lots of girls (and I suppose maybe a few boys….oooookkkkayyy) who want to be Barbie! Watch how this girl transforms herself into Barbie with her “Perfect Plastic Skin”! YIKES!!!
I just HAD to share this cute video! Filmed many years ago, it predicted what we’d be wearing in the 2000′s. Did they get some of it right? Watch the part at the end with the guy having the phone on him! Hilarious!
Apparently Bravo is going to make as much money as they possibly can off the very popular Real Housewives series. Ya can’t blame em’, but that doesn’t mean I’M going to be buying any of this stuff.
What I’m talking about is a Real Housewives inspired Fashion Line! Yes, it is produced by Bravo. Some of the ladies dress great, but some….all I can say from your Diamond Gal Fashion Diva is…yuch!! Hopefully Bravo will have some great designers that will come up with cute, affordable fashion. We’ll see.
In the mean time, attached is a “Real Housewives” Fashion video to whett your apetite for their upcoming clothing line.
The big news at the VMA’s was, of course, the whole Kanye/Taylor fiasco. But aside from that, this year Taylor did not do the red carpet interviews as she did in the past. And she was asked what would be her advice to “Twilights” Ashley Greene who handled the duties at the pre -awards celeb “runway”!
Besides the typical boring question “Who are you wearing”, an interviewer needs to be able to think on their toes!
Here is the video of the advice Taylor gave (in case you find yourself ever on a red carpet interviewing celebs….one can wish!)
So when did it all start. No wearing white after Labor Day? Well I did a little snooping around and found some very interesting answers to this. Now, before you read this bit of tidbit from yahoo answers, just remember your Diamond Gal’s REAL take on this whole issue: “If you wanna wear white after Labor Day, I say GO FOR IT!” That’s what I WANTED to tell my sister-in-law when she stuck her nose in the air and said I had created quite the “Faux Pas” for wearing white on September 20th (this was last year). I chickened out. One of those things where ya say, “why didn’t I say that” after the fact. The point was, although it WAS September 20th, well after Labor Day, it was 100 degrees outside, and I figured white was okay!
Although the guy at “Confashional” would totally disagree seems like! Check out this hysterical video I attached about a guy dissing and complimenting some people in New York City wearing White after Labor Day! Seriously, this guy cracks me up and here’s the info from yahoo:
“Only wear white shoes between Memorial Day and Labor Day.” Furthermore, it mainly applied to white pumps or dress shoes. White tennis shoes and off-white boots seem exempt, as are any shoes worn by a winter bride. “Winter white” clothing (e.g., cream-colored wool) is acceptable between Labor Day and Memorial Day too.
The only logical reasoning we could find cited temperature. Image consultant Nancy Penn suggests that because white reflects light and heat, wearing white would make you cooler in winter, and thus should be avoided.
Several sites quoted a charming refrain about G.R.I.T.S. — girls raised in the South. This bit of folklore states, “Southern girls know bad manners when they see them,” and a clear sign of bad manners is wearing white shoes before Easter or after Labor Day. Because fashions in the American South can be a little more formal than elsewhere, perhaps the no-white-shoes rule came from south of the Mason-Dixon Line? Even Star Jones (an otherwise fashion-forward Southern lady) admits that white shoes “are for Easter Sunday and not the dead of winter.”
So of course it’s not enough for Kenny Chesney to sell millions of albums, win tons of major industry awards and have breaking records concert ticket sales, now the amazing talent can add ‘fashion designer’ to his list of accomplishments. The country superstar has developed a new clothing line called Blue Chair Bay. He hopes the casual attire inspires people to relax.
“Blue Chair Bay is kind of like the place we’d all like to go if we had no obligations or nowhere to be,” Kenny tells PEOPLE. “That’s what I want this clothing line to represent. These are the clothes I would pack to go to this place.”
Ya ever notice that so many of Kenny’s songs are either about being on vacation, or wanting to GO on vacation? It’s ironic for a guy who seems to ALWAYS be working! So it would make perfect sense that his fashion line is all about relaxation. Looking forward to him doing well at it, as long as it doesn’t take away from his music!
