Vanessa Hudgens: Transforming a Shirtdress from Drab to Fab

Vanessa Hudgens

Vanessa Hudgens

Though at first glance they may look shapeless and bland, I love shirt dresses. I just bought one in seersucker pattern at H&M last weekend and wore it today with a wide belt, which is the key to making these sack-like garments flatter your shape. These dresses are so flowy and comfortable, perfect for the scorching temperatures that are heading our way.

Vanessa Hudgens recently wore a light blue shirtdress. I think this look suits her style so well; it’s a more sophisticated interpretation of the laid-back, boho styles that she often rocks.

You can easily make a plain, light-blue shirtdress pop with a brown leather belt and sandals, a black tote and a cream colored sunhat.

Miranda Kerr Style For Less

Miranda Kerr I love it when celebs have their own unique style that they stick to instead of wearing anything and everything that is has been dubbed “on-trend” at the moment. At the top of that list is Miranda Kerr. When she’s not modeling bikinis or unmentionables, she tends to go for simple, versatile basics that create a statement-making look when paired together.

I love the idea of throwing a long black blazer over a simple striped dress and casual flip flops. The final element, a quilted black purse with chain accents, adds just the right touch of sophistication to the look.

Baghaus: Because a Girl Can Never Have Enough Bags

Faux Croc Aida Tote ($39, www.baghaus.com)

Designer handbags. They are the obsession of the majority of the female population, to the point that there are dozens of blogs devoted solely to covering the latest and greatest purses. Oh, why do they have to be so #$@$ expensive?! Argh.

If designer bags are as touchy of a subject for you as they are for me, have a look at Baghaus, whose specialty is designer and celebrity inspired styles. Their selection is quite large. Animal print, quilted a la Chanel, faux croc–you name, they got it.

I also love that almost every style is available in a whole bunch of colors. I spotted four or five bags that I’m dying to get just while browsing the first page.

In case you need a reason/justification to get a new bag–Baghaus is having a massive sale right now. Combined with the already affordable prices, this is a such a spectacular deal.
