Prom Inspiration: Keri Hilson

18 Apr

Keri Hilson wore this turquoise dress with pretty accents to the 2011 Grammys, and it was one of my favorite looks on her to date. Because the dress makes its own statement, few accessories are needed.

Her makeup is very pretty, with a smoky eye and natural lip, and she’s paired the dress with a pair of strappy sandals and sparkly clutch. As always, we’ve scoured the web for frocks inspired by Miss Keri.

It’s no secret that The OMG Girlz are popular with The Fab Girls’ readership! The posts about this FAB Girl group continue to be our highest rated, especially this one!

Lala Anthony Shops at K-Mart

4 Apr

(Image from thefashionbombdaily.com)

While visiting one of my favorite sites, thefashionbombdaily.com, I stumbled upon one of my favorite reality stars, Lala. She was wearing a dress from K-Mart that costs $17.50, which confirms my theory that she is as down to earth as she seems. Now she did pair it with a pair of Christian Louboutin sandals that cost enough to buy one of these dresses for 56 people ($995), but it’s still refreshing to see a star in a piece that we can all afford.

You can purchase it at kmart.com, along with this:

19 Mar

Everyone who knows me knows how much I love dresses. Now that the weather is warmer, I will be living in them! There is nothing more comfortable than a maxi dress and flip flops. It’s like a fancy night gown and house shoes. And I don’t want to hear anything about cheap Old Navy flip flops because I WILL be re-stocking the second the $1 sale starts!

Anyway, I have stumbled across some really cute dresses in magazines and on line I wanted to share, which you can continue on to see. Best of all, they are all under $40! Have you found some great dresses for spring, also? Share a link to your finds in the comments!

FAB Face:Natural Makeup

I asked my friend Ernestine to do our inaugural FAB Face post because she’s gorgeous, extremely photogenic, and her makeup always slays. (So does her hair, but that’s a post for another day!)

Here she is giving a gold, smoky eye with a natural lip that is great for day or  evening. Looks like this are perfect for young women because you want to use cosmetics that enhance your features without being overpowering.
