BRONZE YOUR BEAUTIFUL BODY! [New Video]

 

Hey Love Bug,

It’s time to complete the beachy bronzed look we started last week. Did you try any of my tips for bronzing your face?  This week, I show you how I achieve an at home spray tan and camouflage the imperfections on my legs!

BRONZE GLOW is a multi-functional makeup blend formulated to create the most flawless and glowing complexion. It compliments all skin tones, easy to use and won’t clog pores.  Bronze Glow is not a sunless tanning spray but rather an HD makeup enhancer and can be used on the Face and Body to achieve a rich warm glow.  *It is supposed to fade evenly after 3-4 days, but actually stayed longer on me!

SUNGLO FACE & BODY BRONZER has a subtle touch of gold shimmer for a beautiful sun-kissed glow. It’s smooth and silky on your skin, evens out skin tone, blurring imperfections and covering tan lines, while giving you a youthful “tropical vacation” glow. Good for all skin types, This bronzer is best on fair to medium-dark skin tones. Fortified with natural oils and flower extracts such as chamomilla, calendula, tea tree and aloe extracts.

Many are asking already where I got this cute gingham dress, Nordstrom Rack y’all! The choker too. The bracelets are a combo stack of ronniemjewelry.com and taylorshayedesigns.com . Wedge sandals are Steve Madden from Nord’s!  Yes, they are high, but so so so comfy.

#MondayMotivation // Mood Dressing, Thanks Elvis

Did you have a mini breakdown in your closet this morning because among the cram packed clothes you “didn’t have anything to wear”?  Been there, done that. You try a few things on that end up on the floor, the heat rises to your face, you can’t control it, you may drop a curse word (or 3), you yell at your reflection in the mirror and now you have to reapply deodorant. WHEWWWW. EXHALE. One of the ways I keep my sanity in the closet is to dress for what mood I’m in. I think we get so confused by what we see in the magazines, on celebrities and fashion bloggers that we get paralyzed when we try to put on our own outfits. It’s great to get inspiration from stylish people, but then make it your own!

Wear the hot pink shoes.

Wear the high pony.

Wear the polka dot skirt.

Try that thing you’ve been hesitant about. You know that “thing” you have tried a few times, but weren’t brave enough to actually leave the house wearing. Ok, yes- it may not work. But HEY— it might just be TOTALY FABULOUS! I’m often asked to describe my style. Hmm– The only way I can think to describe it is “Multi-Personality” because I dress for my moods. One day I’m feeling like a rocker chick, the next day boho and the particular day of the above photo– I was thinking of those fun Elvis movies from the 60’s set in Hawaii. Loved the actresses (his love interests) wardrobes in the 60’s! Bold floral prints are everywhere right now so go try it.

But, most days I’m channeling the 70’s era mixed with a few current trends. I’m grateful that being a self-employed TV Host/Coach I have the liberty to wear whatever I want. I get it, many of you may not be able to wear a Def Leppard concert tee to work, but you can certainly express yourself in your personal life.

What about you?

What’s your style?

Stuck in a rut?

Last Saturday I did my yearly Spring closet shake up. Usually I do this by March, but with all the traveling I’m a bit late. Its takes energy and creativity so do this when you’re feeling it so it’s fun instead of overwhelming. Put on some fun music and shake it all up. Pull things out that haven’t moved in a while. Try them on. Mix and match. That floral jumpsuit in the photo is actually 2 years old. I forgot I even had it until I shook up my closet and found it hanging behind a bunch of long dresses.

Just remember– Do you! Do your thing! Don’t feel like you have to be a style sheep and do what the masses are doing. Don’t buy labels just because everyone else is. Clones are so boring. It’s great to get inspiration but then make it your own.

YOU CAN’T BUY STYLE!

Just because that dress is a label and cost $2K doesn’t mean it looks great on everyone.

What’s that THING you’re going to try this week?

NO MATCHY, MATCHY! Tiff’s 5 Style Rules

Hey Sassy Pants,

Thanks to Real Housewives of Dallas and Twitter, we have several new style sistas in the sisterhood! Welcome to my hood! A few ladies have mentioned going back through the old blog posts and videos. It’s so fulfilling knowing that all the content I’ve shared over the past 5 years is still empowering women. Someone asked what my personal style rules and I thought “I must have a video for that” and voila, I sure do! Even though this was filmed in 2012, these rules still apply:

STYLE RULE #1:  Never leave the house without a little sparkle or bling around your face!

If I’m heading to a workout or running to the grocery store, I always add a diamond CZ stud earring.  This just adds a little life around your beautiful face! 

FOR MORE, WATCH THE WEBISODE:

Make sure to share this with your girlfriends!

Love + Lipgloss,

Tiff

 

FLASHBACK IN BLACK [Video]

October starts tomorrow and thank God the temps finally starting dropping this week. I haven’t really wanted to think about Fall fashion because it’s been boiling most of September. How can we think of faux fur, boots and fun scarves when the only thing that is comfortable is a tank or maxi sundress!?!

I browsed through my style videos and came across this one highlighting timeless black items and thought it’s the perfect time of year to dust them all off!  These are investment pieces that all need to live in our closets.

Also, being the end of a month and the beginning of a new one I challenge you to take some time to reflect and re-examine your goals.

Let’s make October outstanding.  There’s only 90 days left in 2016. What do you need to do differently in the next 3 months?

Love & Ladyballs,

Tiff

 

 

POWER DRESS FOR PRESS

entertainemtn_t

[On set for our Entertainment Tonight interview with Brice Sander at Lisa Vanderpump’s SUR restaurant]

What a whirlwind it’s been the past few weeks! The awesome kind of whirlwind with plenty of ‘pinch me’ moments. I had a plush room at the Four Seasons and dinner at Mastro’s- my favorite LA steak place while sitting across from other fellow Bravo family members like Dorinda, Ramona & Jules from RHONY and Shep & Cameron from Southern Charm. When you’re told that you and your cast mates are heading to LA for a big press tour, the panic starts with what to wear! Thanks to the brilliance of superstar stylist Jeanette Chivvis– the panic turned to peace & power.

Jeanette has this intuitive aspect to her styling. She just knows what is going to look most fabulous on you. I squealed when she showed me this canary yellow dress by Pink Lucy! It fit me perfect and I just knew it was THE dress for our Access Hollywood and Entertainment Tonight interviews.  As part of SOS, you know I’m a firm believer in the power of color. I felt happy, radiant and strong in this yellow. Day 1- a total style success!

Day 2- We had a full day of press junkets and red carpet interviews at the NBC Universal Summer Press Day. About 200 media outlets from all over the world are there to get the latest scoop on NBC Universal’s new stars and programming. My bestie, LeeAnne Locken and I were paired together for all the interviews so we made sure to coordinate our ‘power’ outfits. Jeanette had this stunning red custom made for me from London and she pulled this amazing white jumpsuit from Escada. To finish my look, she added jewelry from local Dallas designer, Harper Hallam. Nailed it! Oh and talk about a pinch me moment- looking over at the press booth next to you to see Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandell. I know what you’re thinking and yes, Heidi Klum is even more statuesque, stunning and stylish in person!

Back in Dallas, we started our local press tour with the lovely Meredith Land for NBC5 at the hotspot, Bistro 31.  Jeanette pulled this off-the-chain Elizabeth & James dress from Rent The Runway. Ok…seriously, I want to have this dress made in every color! It fit me like a glove and was super comfy. All about class, power and great fit.

Then, we were off to Culturemap Dallas for a fun interview with the fab Dawn Neufeld. Can we talk about my ridiculously fabulous new nude Louboutin’s?  Your dress needs to feel powerful, but your shoes should as well. I treated myself to a new pair specifically for this press tour. A great nude open toe heel is a life saver! If you do not own a pair put that at the top of your shopping list for Spring. I also love Stephanie’s patent nude Loubou’s. Really the perfect shoe. Period.

Our final stop was back at Bistro 31 for a very interesting interview with the Dallas Observer. I decided to change up my look and absolutely love a great jumpsuit! Love this kelly green, twist neck jumpsuit by BCBG is going to be my go-to for 2016. The Loubou’s worked again!  Are you getting it now..the importance of color when you’re going to a special event? Cary, Stephanie and I just ‘pop’ in this photo. Whether it’s a job interview, a wedding, important event or hot date- YOUR power color is always best! A great LBD always looks chic, but I always go for color first.

The cherry on top of my big day was running into my BFF, Heidi. I love that our outfits matched! She was there for a quick happy hour with her hubby. Her colorful scarf style maxi sundress was so fun, sexy and fresh. Great tip: Throw a light sweater over your shoulders for the unpredictable Spring weather.

Our final Dallas press day began at the Dallas Morning News with the fun & sassy Dawn Burkes. We were told we could go more casual for this interview. I tried something I always want to do, but always forget. I added a contrasting shoe with my fabulous yellow blouse. It was so fun and I highly recommend it! Cary had an important surgery right after this interview and I love that she’s rockin’ her scrubs. It is REAL life!

LeeAnne finished the day at CW-33. I chose this nude blush flowy dress by BCBG. Another great tip for doing on camera interviews or if you are on stage for a speaking engagement- more than likely you will be sitting in a tall directors chair or bar stool. Make sure to never wear a super short dress. Not flattering on the legs!

SPRING 2016 STYLE GOALS

Pink_BCBG

HELLO GORGEOUS!

Happy March!  Are you as excited for Spring as I am? The weather has been amazing in Dallas and I’m ready to put away the drab coats and pull out the bright colors. A few days ago, I had the fun opportunity to attend Erika Jayne’s performance. (Thank you again 103.7 KVIL for the VIP treatment) She is one of the newest cast members of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills and WHOA- talk about a powerhouse!  As I was fishing through my closet to find just the right outfit that would be worthy of wearing to a performance by “the pretty mess” herself- I came across a bubblegum pink BCBG dress with the tags still on. Why do I keep bypassing this dress? Is it too bright? Was it out of my color comfort zone? I love pink, but I guess I just haven’t worn it much.

I always encourage you sistas to try new things. It was time to listen to my own advice. Trust me, I tried on several outfits and even showed my hubby trying to get him to convince me to wear anything BUT that hot pink dress. He loved the pink. As I stepped out of my comfort zone, this got me thinking of you and how we should all set some style goals for Spring!

This is the perfect time to take a Saturday and clear the clutter. Go through your closet and make an assessment of the items that need to stay, to be donated and items you need to add. Check out my oldie, but goodie video on closet organization. Often, we buy the same things over and over because we forget what’s in our closet. You don’t need 5 black pencils skirts, Tiff!

Here is an idea of some style goals I want to set. I’ll kickstart it then you adjust to your own personal needs and particular style:

  1. Only keep items that I absolutely love and that make me feel confident.
  2. Focus on a fit that flatters and become BFF’s with my tailor.
  3.  Buy fewer Boho chic items this year. (I have enough already!!)
  4. Purchase more modern & clean items and less embellished.
  5. Purchase more higher quality items that are investment pieces. It’s ok to allow for a lower end, trendy items to mix it up and help the check book.
  6. Explore bright colors that I haven’t worn in a while like canary yellow & hot pink.
  7. Embrace my figure and feel more comfortable wearing body con dresses to emphasize my waist. (Why not? I’ve been working out like a mad woman!)
  8. Add more camel & cognac like get a lightweight camel coat or trench.
  9. Check out Rent The Runway.
  10. Have fun going a bit blonder with the highlights.

 

Also, as I always mention- please take some time a the beginning of each month to set your intentions. We are shedding the winter blah’s and allowing for the rebirth of new ideas and goals. Grab your journal and get quiet. Think about what you really want. Visualize it. Pray about it. Part of my intentions for this month is to stay at peace no matter what.

Today’s #Tiffirmation Tweet: 

Don’t allow anyone or any situation to steal your peace. Stay grounded and don’t get caught up in other’s chaos or drama. Peace = Power. 

Wishing you all a stylish & blessed March!

Comment, share or tweet this so your girlfriends can set some style goals too. Maybe find a friend and do this together!

Love, Tiff

 

 

 

REPLAY: 4 Standout Styles For New Year’s Eve

BE FAB FRIDAY: 4 Fashion Rules the Media Doesn’t Tell You By Guest Blogger Tina Hamilton

Fashion Rules the Media Doesn't Tell You

Image Courtesy of Cosmopolitan

It starts at a very young age for most of us with your mother telling you that you can’t go to school in your ballerina tutu. It continues when you hit middle school and your friends tell you that braces are dorky and weird. The issue furthers in high school when you are told that you need to look like all your favorite celebrities or you won’t be popular. Just when you think it would get better, it only gets worse as you reach your twenties and thirties when you are supposed to maintain a perfect look, the ideal corporate job and a stable relationship. We don’t even need to talk about the brutal scrutiny that women over the age of 40 are under!

Women are constantly given rules by our peers and the media telling us how to look. These standards seem impossible to maintain, and for many of us, they are simply unrealistic. We all have different bodies, different needs from our style and different tastes that do not always fit into the mold that the media creates.

Instead, we should create our own set of rules, rules that focus on the true meaning of style; to make every woman feel beautiful and confident every single day. Here are the fashion rules that the media doesn’t tell you, and why you should ditch everything else and follow them instead.

1. The garment should work for you, not the other way around

Every piece of clothing and every accessory should work only to enhance you and your beauty. You should never feel the need to squeeze into a tight pair of jeans in order to look skinnier if you are not comfortable doing so. Instead, take those jeans in the next size up. You will feel better and look better in clothes that fit you properly.

2. You should never cast out a style because of your size

Many girls are told they cannot wear certain styles and trends because of their body. For example, girls who are small on top are told they cannot wear sheath dresses. These ideas should be cast out for every woman, you need to try the look on yourself and find the right fit before you determine that the look works well for you or not.

3. Never buy anything before trying it on

Some big changes have been made in the world of online shopping, so the need to spend hours in a department store dressing room is no longer necessary. Most online stores offer free returns and exchanges and free shipping, so you can get the same items at lower prices without leaving the house. You can even buy bras online with new bra sizing apps that ensure that you will get the best fit possible.

4. You can wear trendy looks at any age

Celebrities today have proven that age does not need to determine your style anymore. You can still pull of trendy looks no matter what your age is. Look to celebrities like Jennifer Aniston and Stacy London for trendy looks that are still age appropriate so you can maintain your fashion forward style.

Stay Cool & Chic in the Office {New Style Webisode}

Hey Fellow Fashionistas!

Many of you have been asking for new style videos and today is the day! Thanks for being patient. I must admit- I thought I was all tapped out with style tips and started getting burnt out on it all. My right hand is in pain for a week after editing a video and I was starting to lose creativity. I realize I have to put in the grunt work and won’t have to edit everything forever. I don’t know how full-time computer graphic artists do it. Just keepin’ it real. I have so much more inside me to share than just shopping & style tips and many of you have expressed how much the motivational candid vlogs inspire you. That makes me so happy. But, I realized this is par for the course when you’re on your path & purpose. We have to take a breather and a step back in order to regain clarity of purpose, rekindle the flame and gather energy for the next part of the journey.

There have been many times since I started SOS that I wanted to quit. I cried to my hubby a few weeks ago because I felt like I was in limbo and being stretched to my limits. I wondered what was to come next. I had just passed on a publishing deal for my book and that broke my heart. It just wasn’t a ‘fit’ for me and my mission. I actually got mad at God. WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO DO? I prayed…. and yelled a bit. Then, like always, I’m given peace and perspective. I thought of all the women who have written me saying how the blog & videos helped them transform and feel more confident. That is what motivates me to keep on keepin’ on!  SOS isn’t for me, it’s for you.

The TD Jakes quote came to mind, “Whenever God pulls back a bow, the arrow is going to go further than it’s ever gone before.”  I share this with you all because I know there are many of you who are feeling stretched right now. Summer is nearly over and the kids are going back to school. Schedules are changing and you are the one who has to keep it all going smoothly. The world is so fragile and we’re getting horrible news daily. Don’t allow the stretching or the shaky feelings to derail you from your purpose. Do not give up. Take a beat. A time out. Then get ready to go farther than you ever have before. WooHoo! 

Ok- enough of that. Ready for the new video complete with a brand spankin’ new intro!?  I’m so excited for the new look and vibe. I have to thank my hubby for supporting me and pushing me to take things to the next level. He cares about all of you sistas as much as I do! I read him the messages you all send me and it inspires & touches him to keep helping me.

Just as we need a ‘makeover’ from time to time- so does SOS. Hope you like it…
