Create Your Hot Look Contest

Wet Seal is having a contest for Valentine's Day. For this contest, you can create your own Valentine's Day outfits and receive a $100 Wet Seal gift card if your outfit wins. To enter; sign up for or login to the fashion community, go to "My Boutique", design an outfit, tag your outfit as "V-Day 2009", and submit it to the runway! Make sure your outfit includes at least 3 or more items in order for it to be considered. Read the contest rules for more details. I will post the outfits I created for the contest below. This article is also somewhat of a follow-up to my last blog entry since my contest outfits would also be great to wear for a Valentine date.

The outfit with the most votes in the fashion community will win. The person with the winning outfit will receive a $100 gift card. The runner up will get a $75 gift card, and 3rd place will win a $50 gift card. The contest ends on February 13, 2009 at 11:59 PM, so start styling as soon as possible if you would like to participate! Let me know if you want me to vote for your outfits to help your chances of winning the contest. E-mail me at or send me a message via myspace. You can also send me a message through the Wet Seal fashion community. My Wet Seal screen name is Charmed42787. Please note that the oufits I posted from Wet Seal in my previous entry are not meant for the contest as I had styled them before the start date of January 23, 2009. Have fun styling, and good luck to everyone who enters the contest! And most importantly, Happy Valentine's Day!

What To Wear On A Valentine Date

Got a date this Valentine's Day but not a clue what to wear? I may just have a few suggestions for you. I have put together some outfits for Valentine's Day on Wet Seal and Charlotte Russe's websites. I've created several different outfits for many types of dates weather it is spent at a nice resturant, concert, at the movies, having a picnic in the park, etc. Don't have a date this Valentine's Day and just plan on going out with some friends instead? I've got you covered for that as well. Take a look below to get some ideas on what to wear for V-Day:

I hope the above outfits I created help give you some ideas on what to wear this V-Day. Remember, you don't have to use the exact same pieces from the outfits I've pieced together. You can re-create these looks with your own clothes instead. You can also take one item (or a similar item) from these creations and put together your own look with it. Let me know if you have any more suggestions on what to wear for a Valentine date (or other V-Day occassions.). Also let me know if you created any outfits for V-Day online and would like me to feature them in this blog. You can also send me a picture of you wearing the outfit you plan to wear on Valentine's Day if you would like me to put it up in my blog. E-mail all links and pictures to me at

More Metallic Must-Haves

Last year, I wrote an article talking about how shine was everywhere. Well this year, shine is still going strong. The style of shine that has particularly caught my eye this year though, is shiny leg wear. As I was walking through various different stores at the Westfield Sunrise mall yesterday, I couldn't help but notice that metallic leggings were all over the place. When I got back home, I was inspired to go searching for more metallic leggings online . So, I thought I'd post my finds in this blog.

Latex Disco Dot Legging, $38.00, available in sizes S and M,

Side Zip Latex Legging, $38.00, shown in pewter; also available in black, sizes XS-L,

Liquid Leggings, $14.99, shown in silver; also available in black, sizes SM-LG (silver not available in SM),

Sexy 24" Legging, $34.00, available in sizes Small and Medium,

Wet Look 27" Legging, $34.00, available in sizes X-Small-Medium,

Aqua Women's Latex Liquid Leggings, $42,00, available in sizes small and medium,

Aqua Women's Liquid Latex Leggings with Zipper, $42.00, available in sizes Small-Large,

Glossy Open Heel & Toe Leggings, $15.80, sizes Small-Large,

Metallic Knit Leggings, $9.99, available in sizes Small-Large,

Metallic Leopard Leggings, $10.80, available in sizes X-Small and Small,

Metallic Shine Knit Leggings, $13.80,

Stirrup Gloss Leggings, $17.80, avilable in sizes X-Small-Large,

Stirrup Leggings, $13.80, available in sizes X-Small-Large,

Zip Ankle High Shine Leggings, $17.80, available in sizes Small and Medium,

Gathered Ankle Glitter Legging, $17.80, available in sizes Small and Medium,

High Shine Leggings, $13.80, shown in gold; also available in black, sizes Small-Large,

Silence & Noise Super Shiny Leggings, $38.00, shown in gold; also available in black, sizes xsmall-large,

These glossy leggings would be a perfect way to spice up the classic "Little Black Dress". They would also look great under a tunic top. You can even wear them under an over-sized t-shirt or boyfriend cardigan to add a feminine touch to a menswear-inspired look. If you see any other metallics that I haven't featured yet, let me know. Also tell me if there are any other leg wear trends that you would like me to write about. E-mail me at or send me a message on myspace. Keep shining!
