Spice it up!

What to wear with that bathing suit?

Obviously you usually don't want to wear jewelry... it's going to ruin getting wet. We all know they wear them in the magazines, but let's get real here: They aren't ACTUALLY planning on swimming or doing anything, except posing for a picture. The solution to this issue? Accessorize with sunglasses!

Sunglasses come in so many varieties, designs, and colors. You just have to find the ones that fit your style. Personally, I'll buy one name brand pair such as Chanel, Prada, Ray Ban, etc. and then I'll purchase several inexpensive ones that are still totally cute. I usually buy cheap ones that have an adorable design. Fashion labelled ones for me are usually a neutral color that go with most anything. Urban Outfitters has a variety of cute shades to choose from now! From heart-shaped to wayfarers, I'm sure you'll find a pair that match you!

Stay Classy,

Be Flashy

As you might know there are some other fabulous websites out on the world wide web besides ClassyNotClashy!  Flash sale websites are among the more popular ones!  A flash sale website sells items ranging from designer umbrellas one day to lush duvets from The W Hotels, and all deeply discounted!  The catch, is new sales start everyday at a certain time. Get there early to prevent your dreams of sealing the deal on a vintage Chanel handbag being stolen away from you!  Two of my favorite websites are Rue La La and Gilt.  Click on the names to take you to the websites homepage!  Good luck!

What's everyone talking about this Spring?


Color. It's all about color. Bold, neon is hot off the runway. No worries for those not as wild- lighter shades aren't completely out. Another trend is retro, especially retro sunglasses. Check out the new shades from the Marc by Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, and Dior lines. They all have retro, neon, aviator shades that are perfect for your spring vacations to paradise. Tory Burch is also prepared with adorable woven big bags for beach trips. Kate Spade isn't far behind with your typical spring colors-floral pinks and whites. Don't hesitate to start getting your spring wardrobe- items will be running out soon! I'm SO excited for this season, it's totally my style.

Stay Classy,

Spring 2012 Trends

Colors are everything this Spring 2012!
If you are a fan of color, then this Spring you happen to be in luck!  Everything from pastels to wild exotic prints were spotted strutting down the runways. 
  • With Spring comes Easter, and with Easter comes piles of precious pastels!  Anyone can wear pastels without looking like an easter egg.  Mint bottoms are all the rage including trousers, jeans, cutoffs, and flouncy skirts!  Pictured above StyleMint puts a classy twist on mint.
          A perfect way to jump in on the trend without breaking your budget: Forever 21 Mint Skinny Jean $15.50
  • When thinking of Spring and Summer, vivid hues in graphic ethnic prints tend to come with the territory.  Pictured left to right: Carlos Miele, Alberta Ferreti

  •  Color Block is as strong a trend as cement blocks this Spring!  It is no surprise with so many colors to choose from!  Bottega Veneta's 2012 Resort Collection colorblocked in a different and innovative ways while still staying colorblocked!  The collection felt bright, airy, and just like a summer vacation.  My personal favorite is the ivory and pink dress with the big tangerine bucket bag! So girly, airy, and sophisticated!

It's all about Color

Spring Break is coming soon!
Are you gonna be ready? Having trouble getting your wardrobe together? No fear! CC is here(:
This season's hugest trend is COLOR. Not only colorful blouses and tops, but also bottoms. Yes, those Pink vibrant shorts they always sell are finally in. But don't worry if you're not into showing off your bare legs- skinnies, capris, and flares work too! Check out Urban Outfitters, they are going over the top this season. Personally, I <3 it. You'll be catching me at Victoria Secret, Forever 21, Urban Outfitters, and Anthropologie a.s.a.p.

Ciao loves!
