How To Steal Taylor Swift's Style

How To Steal Taylor Swift's Style

Taylor has a sweet, cute yet fashionable style sense and I'm going to tell you how to snag it, for summer!

Lets start with Taylor's hair look... you can count on her to always have nice, soft wavy curls around her face. Getting Taylor's hair is easy.. all you need is a hair curler or some hair curlers. After doing that, simply let the curls fall beside your face, or put a clip at the side to get Taylors soft, pretty hair.
Now, for makeup! Taylor's makeup look is great. That "cat eye" look, and light colored lips are beautiful. Use dark blues and grey eyeshadows to do the eyes and a soft pink gloss on your lips. Plus, a nice pink blush tops off Taylor's look perfectly!

Finally, Taylor's great fashion sense! She usually many soft muted colors such as whites, creams and pastel pinks, which makes her clothing style very feminine. She sometimes also wears polka dots or floral prints or a cute skirt, and usually wears a sleeveless sundress or a sundress with flutter sleeves and a pair of heels, ballet flats or cowboy boots. Taylor has such a great style!

Vera Wang's New Perfume: Lovestruck

Vera Wang's New Perfume: Lovestruck

Vera Wang has yet another amazing fragrance. First her Princess Perfume collection, and now her newest perfume Lovestruck. It has top notes of pink guava, angelica blossom and in the heart of the scent, there is a smell of lotus and tuberose with a base of woody scents and musk.

Lovestruck is being described as a sparkling floral perfume, youthful yet classic. It was inspired by a modern day version of the story of Romeo and Juliet.

Vera Wang said: "Lovestruck ... the name of my brand new fragrance…All about being overwhelmed, inexplicably, hopelessly in love. Allowing yourself to feel passion inspite of yourself, the situation, the repercussions. A new definition of Romeo and Juliet! Romantic, sensual, and unstoppable!"

Lovestruck is an amazing new fragrance, and one of my new favorites... I know it will be loved all around the world by everyone.

New Lady Gaga Song-The Edge of Glory

Lady Gaga's Newest Song- The Edge of Glory

Lady Gaga has yet another itunes charting song. It is called The Edge Of Glory. It is a catchy, much loved new pop song. I really like it, and know it will be a huge hit around the world.

I first found the song after watching the lately released music video of Judas by Gaga. The song came up on the side bar as "New Gaga Song-Edge of Glory" I immediately clicked it (being a Gaga fan, how couldn't I?). I started listening, and instantly knew it was my new favourite!

I scrolled down to see the comments other people wrote about the song. They were all positive, and showed that everyone loved this song a lot. But, Gaga is topping everything! She has the number one song on itunes and the number one music video on itunes!
Overall I love Gaga's tune, and I think it is one of her best on her knew album so far! Click here to hear the song, and tell me what you think in a comment!

How To Work Wedges

How To Work Wedges

Wedges look fabulous in any outfit, but anyone will tell you, they look horrible if they are not being worn the right way. We all know that wedges are essential in any outfit, but if they you don't know how to make them look good, then what will can you do? Well, Style It Girl knows six ways to work the wedge!

The Bright Miu Miu's

We all know that eye-catching shoes are always great, so the first way to rock wedges, is going for bright ones! If the wedges are a vibrant color, people will look at them, and think they look great! You can wear bright wedges with almost anything, jeans, blank tee's, and even dresses! These bright Miu Miu's are great because they are super stylish and bright!

Add Some Sparkle, With Coach

The second secret to rocking these shoes, is... go for sparkles, and shines! Coach has a perfect example of how to do this. The metallic gold colored wedge gives a mythological feeling, and the jewels on it makes it
très chic! White flowy skirts or smock shirts go very well with these types of wedges!

Go For Florals, Like Steve Madden

The Third way to work the wedge, is add florals! Whether the print is floral, or there are flowers on the shoe itself, floral wedges are really cute, and all the rage! The wedges can be any color, and will most likely go with everything, but as long as there is that flower there, you are rocking the wedge!

Wedges are great shoes, and now that you know how to work them, you will look fabulous!

The Royal Wedding
Everything from the fashion, to the vows, to the photographs... it is a wedding we will never forget...

It is amazing to think that twenty-two weeks ago, we found out that Prince William was getting married. Now he has, and the wedding was the biggest of the century. People from all over the world were watching. It was a historic moment in history... the wedding dress, the "I do's" and the most watched kiss in the world, Kate and William are the most talked about people from nation to nation.

The Dress...

Kate's dress was beautiful! Designed by Alexander McQueen, the gown was a shocking beauty, much loved, and anticipated. As she walked down the aisle, her long dress flowed elegantly out behind, and was carried by her sister, Pippa. The dress was white, and had lace sleeves. It was very pretty and elegant.

The Guests...

1,900 people were invited to be part of this amazing wedding, and they consisted of about fifty people from the royal family, and almost forty members form other royal families, and of course Kate and William's family. People like Victoria and David Beckham were invited along with Sir Elton John and some other celebrities.

The Crowds...
Many people came to watch the wedding from outside Westminster Abbey to get a glimpse of Kate and William. The crowds were huge, almost too big! People were coming from the United States, Canada and other countries to see this royal occasion. From children to seniors, everyone was there watching. If you were not outside the abbey, then you were watching on your TV at home!

The Kiss...
When William and Kate came out onto the balcony, there were scream of delight! Everyone was so exited to see them kiss. And crowd got a lucky surprise; they kissed twice! It is definitely true love! The kiss was the most-watched one in the world.

You might be wondering what the perfect way to spice up your outfit is... if so, look no further! Getting a cool outfit is easy. You only have to follow three simple rules. To find out how to rock your look, just scroll down, and read these rules!

1) Make It Pop!

Try using bright colors in your outfit. Adding a fiery red tee with some white denim shorts is really fun and hot! Even if your outfit is a little bland, just add a neon colored hair band, or scarf! The shoes are really important too, so try for some hot pink wedges, or bright blue ballet-flats. Even if it is your nails polish that is making the shimmering splash in your outfit, a vibrant touch of color always makes an outfit look better!

2) Go For Patterns!

If you see a cute dress, but think the big and bubbly pattern is too "out there" don't worry, because big patterns are key to making any outfit look fabulous! Try bold striped shirts, and funky polka-dotted hair-bands! Cute geometric patterned skirts in bold oranges are really fun, and will get everyone looking your way! As long as you feel good in your patterned outfit, the look will rock!

3) Add Florals!

Want to give your outfit a super special look? Well, add a flower! On any colored hair bands, a big carnation on the side always looks good, and floral hair clips are pretty too. On flip-flops or sandals, a big flower always looks great! Floral skirts, shirts, and jackets look amazing with floral patterns on them, and make for a terrific outfit!

Toy Watches-Safari Style

Toy Watches-Safari Style

Toy Watches are known for colorful, cool and interesting watches. And this time, they are dressed to impress! They have lately come out with a new 100% unique watch, Safari. The watches have faces in animal prints like zebra and leopard. The bands come in white and black plasteramic bracelets, and have white or gold rhinestones around the face. I love these watches because they are so cool, stylish and hip! They can be dressed us, or down, and are so chic! The colors are great, but now that you know about all these terrific things about these safari styled watches you might be wondering: What will they look good with, and how do I rock the look?
Well, if that is your question you're reading the right thing, because below is all about how you can make these watches look amazing and fantastic, plus how you can make the look all yours!

1) How To Rock The Look...
Rocking the look is the simple part. Where the watch on the hand you don't write with to start. Then pair it with some brown or black leather string bracelets. Try to wear it with three quarter length sleeve shirts and tee-shirts. If you wear natural colors like greens, grays, whites, blacks and browns, the watches may look better.

2) What To Wear...
For your clothing, you want deep green shorts, or jeans. For your nails, try creams, beiges, greens, yellows, browns, or light colored natural colors. Try simple necklaces like dog tags, or leather strings. As long as you feel good the look will be fabulous!

3) Makeup...
Try nude lipsticks if you are tan or dark, and bright reds if you are fare. Try light pink lip glosses too! For the eyes, don't go too heavy on anything, but do put a little bit of brown eyeliner on, and some forest green eyeshadow. As for hair, do a high pony-tail, braid, or pigtails!

4) Accessorize It...
Go for big sunglasses that go from light to dark. For bags try totes or green/brown colored leather bags. Go for a safari patterned scarf, with some cute sandals, flip-flops or gold/green/brown colored ballet flats.

Safari Style!
