Look for Less-Kanye West Rings at Paris Fashion Week 2010

This year Kanye West and Amber Rose (his arm candy girlfriend) have been all over Paris Fashion Week. From furry creatures as coats and Amber Rose's barely there outfits have made for some great front row fashion.

But I was very interested in the accessories that he was wearing. I finally saw a close up of the rings he was sporting and I was in AWWW. I am such a lover of opulent rings. The more overstated the better. The Marie Antoinette head and pyramid eyes double finger ring are something out of a dream. They are so unique.

But since I do not have millions and can't afford hundreds of dollars in jewelry, I settled to find some rings they could give me the same look. Here are some rings from Forever 21. MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE STORE EVER.

Thank you!!!! I think everyone got the memo. Because the ladies of the SAG Awards look phenomenal and stunning. I was not disappointed this time around. The ladies of the night made a great recovery from the Golden Globes. It looked like everyone was truley the "Belle of the Ball". I believe that a overall winner is comfort and confidence. You should always, and I mean ALWAYS feel a sense of comfort in what you are wearing and then your confidence will shine through.

Since they did so well, I am not going to have a Worst Dressed category this time. I know they deserved it.

Frugal Tip Monday- Makeup Repair Tips to Save You Money

Fashion and Beauty go hand in hand. Makeup is the next step to finishing your overall look. Whether it be just a gloss to the lips, a basic liner, or bronzer on the cheeks; Makeup is very important.

Makeup is very different than fashion in some ways. With fashion you can have a certain item and you are able to wear it until "the cows come home". In other words, you never have to get rid of it. With makeup that is a different story. The shelf life of makeup is nowhere near close to an item of clothing in your closet.

So Karen at Makeup and Beauty Blog is giving you tips to save money by fixing some of your true makeup challenges.

Salvaging Dried Up Nail Polish

makeup tips,makeup and beatu blog,karen,save old nail polish

Ladies, we have all had a good nail polish go to waste. Either you let your little sister borrow it and she left the top off or you have just used it too many times.

Karen recommends three products to thin your cakey nail polish:

1. A thinner-It contains Acetone. Karen states that this has the best results. You can typically find this in a beauty supply store. Just a few drops will do. But there are other alternatives.

2. Nail Polish Remover-Everyone has this laying around the house. Again, just a few drops and shake for 2 minutes and you get a few more nice polishes out of you cakey polish.

3. Rubbing Alcohol- This is last alternative. It does not have the best results but it surely does the job.

Smoothing Cracked Powder Makeup

By dropping 3-5 drops of rubbing alcohol into the compact or pan and crushing and smoothing the makeup, it come together to somewhat solid. You will have something solid versus pieces of your makeup that you still wish you could wear.

Saving Your Flimsy Makeup Brushes

Had a great brush that just felt like it was falling apart. You can now save it. By having a simple jewelry crimping tool, you can have a old brush back like new. Just squeeze together the top region closest to the bristles and hold tightly.

I hope these makeup tips were useful. Check out Karen at Makeup and Beauty Blog for Great Makeup and Cosmetic Review and Products.

Look for Less- Ann Demeulemeester Lace Up Boots

Sea of Shoes by Jane is one of my favorite fashion bloggers for Inspiration. I saw her frequently wear the Ann Demeulemeester Lace Up Boots.

These are very interesting shoes. They are a cluster of many shoes merged into one. They a look of a sneaker with a heel and openings like a sandal. I guess they just wanted a all purpose HEEL BOOT.

I do not know the extact retail price but from ebay they look like they are going for $600 on up.

Golden Globes 2010-Best and Worst Dressed

Where do I begin? I was not inspired by the Golden Globes at all this year. I was bored with all the black, ill-fits, and over structured dresses. I have watched every Fashion Police show out there and I have tried to really find some excitement and it has not happened.

Drew Barrymore to me is the only celebrity actress that took a risk and still stood true to the Hollywood Glamour. As for everyone else, they were a true disappointment.

Here are my Best Dressed (and I mean that lightly) from the Golden Globes:

Golden Globes Best Dressed 2010

Drew Barrymore: What is there not to love about this dress. It is dramatic, romantic, and elegant all in one swipe. Alot of people were not too thrilled with the hip accents but I thought it was something different and after all, it's Drew Barrymore she can pull this off.

Jennifer Aniston: She looks stunning in the color of the season. Nice cut and still very sexy but not over stated.

Anna Paquin: I thought she was the only person other than Drew Barrymore that really got it right. She was on trend with sequins and shine but still kept true to her style. She looked comfortable and stylish and she was not trying to hard to be glamorous, she just was.

Halle Berry: Need I say more. She is in a 40's with a body like that, she can wear anything. But most of all she showed sexy and class. There was cleavage but not enough to distract you from the overall look. I want to be Halle when I get to my 40's.

Penelope Cruz: She looked ravishing. Her hair, makeup, and dress were impeccable. She was a Spanish statue. The overall look spoke for itself. And she was the only one with stay in place hair even though there was down pour rain.

Now for the BAD and VERY BAD, The Worst Dressed of Golden Globes:

Golden Globes Worst Dressed

Fergie: She looks Horrid. Her cleavage is under her chin, she is in a prom dress, and her hair and makeup is just unspeakable. She needed not straps on the dress and a nice elegant ponytails or up off the necks style.

Sandra Bullock: The dress looked like something from a bad bridal shop. The fabric was to shiny and it is a very wrinkle worthy fabric. Her dress looked very cheap and unelegant. (If that is a word) But her hair and makeup is flawless. I wish the dress matched up.

Hiedi Klum: She is a draped purple tortilla. The off the shoulders were dated and the dress was just a NO NO. I really can't explain it, it's Wrong.

Julia Roberts: Is she going to lunch or the Golden Globes. She looks like she did not even try. You have to be "true to Yourself" but this was not appropriate. I think she needed to not even attend.

Cameron Diaz: Did she just wake up and forget the it was the Golden Globes. No earrings or jewelry. She has a very straight body frame and she wears a dress that does not show anything flattering to her figure. She needs to wake up early next time and accessorize.

Bandage/Bodycon Mini Dresses Under $40

I consider myself to be a Classy Lady. But as women we still would like to look and feel sexy. So when Herver Leger came out with the style of the Bandage Dress, I had died and went to heaven. He made a dress that every woman from young to old want to have in there closet in every color. But yet again, not having almost $2000 to spend on one dress, I will settle for the just as good re-makes.

Bandage/Bodycon mini dresses

Here are some way how to wear how to wear a Bandage/Bodycon Mini Dress:

1. The Dress by Itself- Wearing this type of dress is pretty ballsy move because it hides no flaws. So if you have on a more opaque color and bright colored undergarments they will show. So just make sure before you have left the house you have done a once over of your whole look. You do not want to be on the FASHION POLICE LIST.

2. Wearing something over- As pictured above, my two ladies of example are wearing something over their dress. Pairing a nice blazer or oversize sweater is always way to ensure that you are properly covered while still showing some sexy.

3. Wearing the dress as a garment- You can completely change the look of a bodycon dress by just added another garment. Putting a shirt over the dress can easily turn it into a cute skirt. And placing a skirt or pants over the bottom of the dress can turn this into a cute and casual "Instant Shirt".

So if you are a lover of these dresses like I am, Please check out some of the dresses that are under $40.

How to HELP HAITI-Videos and Information

I am not getting into Politics but I feel I need to address this. In Port Au Prince,Haiti there was a 7.0 Earthquake. In recent history, they have not seen anything that massive in 200 years.

People right now are dead and trapped in the stone rumble. Haiti in standing is a very economically poor country. Just hearing this has really moved my heart to want to HELP. And we being everyday people could do just a little to help those in need.

Here are some ways that you can make donations (if you choose to Help). I have already donated $15. Ten dollars to Red Cross and Five dollars to Wyclef Jean Haitian Charity. And please do not take it as I am trying to tell anyone they have to Donate, just do what you feel in your heart.

Here is the information if you would like to help:

Text:YELE to 501501 and you will be donating $5 to Wyclef Jean Relief Foundation.

Text:HAITI to 90999 for a $10 donation to the RED CROSS. (The Red Cross text takes a while to respond back to do not text mutiple times just wait for the prompt.)

And here is a link on AOL of other charities that you are able to DONATE. EARTHQUAKE RELIEF

And here is a Video Courtesy of CNN, showing the devastation that is taking place in Haiti RIGHT NOW.

Frugal Tip Monday-Ways to Earn More Money

Did anyone get the message that it is already 2010. Where did time go!!! But no use crying over split milk. 2010 is here and now it's time to get in gear. LOL that rhymed. Here are some "GOALS" for 2010, not only for my blog and personally but financially too.

The end of last year my finances were not on track. I know Christmas and Birthdays but I was not being as responsible as I should. So this year I am putting myself on a "Money Rehab". I am trying not spend anymore until I make money from what I am not using. What I mean by that is,taking inventory of things in my home that are not being used (i.e. clothing, electronics, and anything else that can be up for sale).

So I will soon be posting items of clothing on Fashion Without Guilt that I am selling. And the sad part about is that, alot of the clothes I have not even worn yet. I know SHAME ON ME. :(

But for all of you out there with this same dilemma, here are some good options for making extra money from items that are not being used.

1. Reselling Sites-Ebay,Ecrater, and Craigslist are some of the most popular sites to post your new or gently used goods for profit.

2. Blogging-If many of you already have a blog, it would be smart to maybe post some of your items for sale. But please but cautious of this, I have a affordable fashion blog. If your blog is not geared towards fashion or something relevant to what you are selling, I recommend you making a completely new blog and linking the two.

3. Social Networks-In this day and age I think everyone has some type of social network log in. Whether it be Facebook, Twitter, or (if you still have one) Myspace. Try post your items for sale on your pages. You might have others that are in such of some new things.

But the main goal is to use what you have to make money. With doing this you are able to save more, buy something of leisure that you want, and have a clearer state of mind and house.

Are any of you planning on implementing this for a new source of 2010 INCOME?

H&M-The Garden Collection

H&M The Garden Collection

As we all know H&M is a retailer that is geared towards bring relevant fashion at budget friendly prices. Me being the "Penny Pincher" that I am, H&M is definitely on my list for favorite stores to shop.

Spring will be here again before we know it and designers and retailers are already showing us what to expect for trends this spring season. H&M:The Garden Collection is a eco-friendly romantic creation. The floral looks of this line are inspired by chlorophyll-green gardens, sundrenched landscapes and even 70s hippie chic flower-power. The romantic garden collection is made using organic and recycled materials. All the garments have been produced using sustainable materials or using recycled PET bottles or textile waste.

How great is that Fashion with Purpose, what more could you ask for? The Garden Collection is set to debut at the end of March. I wish I knew the exact date, so that I could be there with bells and whistles on to be the first in line. Prices ranges from about $7.95-$59.95.

Below are some items that I will surely have in my spring wardrobe, if my sizes are still available.

To view more styles from the collection, click the picture below.

Fab Find-Art Deco/Statement Necklaces From Forever 21

I know I know, you can catch you breath. When I first came saw the necklaces online I couldn't breathe either. So once I got myself back together I immediately ordered the Angular Native Necklace from Forever 21. When it arrived in the mail to my amazement, it was more than what I expected. It was very heavy in weight and looking very "luxe for less". I couldn't believe it was only $10.80. If you were to purchase this at any other store, you will pay a arm and a leg.

If I recommend getting any statement/accessory pieces these are "IT". A statement necklace with a simplistic ensemble will never go out of style. SO PLEASE GET THESE NECKLACES, FOR YOU SAKE!!! YOU WILL REGRET IF YOU DO NOT.

Frugal Tip Monday-2010 Goals

Hello out there if you haven't heard it's 2010. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! And now we all scramble to make these "resolutions" that we never end up keeping. We start the year with great momentum and slowing die down with time.

So I don't want to call anything a "resolution" let's call them GOALS. Have you had anything that has been on the "to do-list" for the past five months, now it's time to take it off the shelf. Start taking action today, don't let it linger another five months.

Here are some of my "GOALS" that I have for Fashion Without Guilt and personally.

1. FWG-I am going to become more consistent on my post. I work a full time job in Insurance and trying to come up with good content to write on a daily can get difficult but I owe it to all of you to show my true passion and dedication for Fashion Without Guilt.

2. FWG-I want to show you a little of who I am too. I will soon be posting audio clips. Just to let you all know what I am thinking and get your feedback.

3. FWG-In the coming months I would like to give Fashion Without Guilt a facelift. The look and features will be completely different. That is in the works.

4. Personally-I am making a rule for myself. I am only going to be clothing from the money I accrue from my previous purchase. I am doing a Winter Cleaning and getting rid of everything that I absolutely know that I am not going to use anymore and SELL IT. I have tags on this that I haven't worn or do not plan on wearing again. I will be posting some of my pieces from my closet so stay tuned.

So now that I have shared with you some GOALS for the NEW YEAR, what are some things you would like to accomplish this year? It can be any type of GOAL feel free to say Anything.
