New Year, New Style Cassentials

Hi, and welcome to the new Style Cassentials!  Please take a few moments to look over the new site.  I definitely want to know what you think!One of the things I wanted for the site was a greater ease of navigation.  Under the Fashion tab, you’ll be able to search for posts under topic.  For example, want ideas on what to wear to work?  You can see all the Manic Monday posts at once simply by clicking on that option under the Fashion tab.  Need advice on shopping, budgeting, or getting the right fit?  Check out the Tips & Tricks.  Need a confidence boost or want a deeper look at what’s going on in society?  The Philosophy & Body Image tab has you covered.I wanted to celebrate my blog debut in style, and I recently found this metallic striped dress at ASOS.  I love the color combination and dramatic shape of the dress.

I was a big fan of the hi-lo style before it became oversaturated in the market a few years back.  I  actually had a dress hemmed as a hi-lo style before it was popular because I find the look flattering and thought it was a cool look.

Now that hi-lo hems have died down as a trend, the look is starting to feel fresh again.  Since this dress is a heavier fabric, the hi-lo shape helps give it a flirtier feel and allows for better movement.I am also all about new year, new hair.  I went with a lob (long bob), and I am working my way to a platinum blonde shade, but started with highlights and balayage color.  Within the next month or two, I hope to have much more of a white blonde color.Take a couple days to familiarize yourself with the new blog – I’ll be back soon with a new post and an exciting giveaway!!!

  1. Fabulous new look! Even still, there’s one constant- you and your great style. Cheers to you on this new look for a great blog.

    As for this outfit, I think this dress is pretty cool. Maybe not one of my all-time favorite dresses you’ve worn, but this does make a statement. So too does those chic pumps. Pretty hairstyle and smile as well. I have no problem offering love to this outfit and your style.
