This "manufacture every team's merch in pink" trend is just silly. Pink and sports have nothing in common.
If you are attending a game and don't have any team jerseys, team hats, tees, etc. or anything at all with your team's colors, then please just wear neutral...i.e. jeans and a white or black top.
Anything but pink.
Pink jerseys, tees, hats, etc. make me want to make fun of the people wearing them. Also, if I was an athelete, I think I'd be kind of offended by my team's logo on a pink jersey.
In general, pink attire worn at sporting events is all kinds of ridiculous...and it makes you look like you are trying too hard to look cute. Don't be that girl!!!
Take a cue from the girls of the SEC...they know how to dress for their team and look hot at the same time. Most of these girls have spent their entire lives perfecting the art of dressing for a sporting event.
Emulate these girls, and save your pink for breast cancer charity events. TRUST.
Now that Orb has crushed everyone's hopes of there being an actual Triple Crown Winner this year , we can all relax and focus on what horse racing is really about:
Remember socialites, your hats can never be too big, crazy, or ridiculous at the races...as long as they are proportionate to your husband's gambling losses, you have nothing to worry about!
Fun Fact: I sometimes get paid for modeling shoes! Here are some secrets I've picked up along the way for getting your feet sandal-ready for summer!
If you haven’t already booked a pedicure, get thyself to a salon ASAP before you even think about slipping into those gorgeous new espadrilles...here’s some inspiration to get you motivated:
Nail salons are notorious for trying to up-sell you once you’re in the chair. If you’re doing regular pedis, you probably can skip these, but if it’s your first one in a while, I recommend the sea-salt scrub and parrafin to help minimize the toll the winter months have taken on your tootsies. For DIY girls, here’s a pedicure how-to.
Between your salon appointments, use a pumice stone on any callouses immediately after your shower while your feet are still wet to keep them smooth. Another great tip for keeping your maintaining your pedicure: every few nights massage your feet with a moisturizing cream and sleep in socks.
And the fun part...choosing a great new nail color for the summer season! Here
are some fun new nail colors from Essie. My personal fave is “in the cab-ana.” Enjoy!
Should you dress your age?
Age-appropriate dressing is a topic every woman has a strong opinion about! Should women even worry about dressing “age-appropriately” today? And if so, what are the rules? Some people have hard and fast rules, i.e. no mini-skirts or bikinis if you are over 30. Others feel you should dress more conservatively if you have a family versus being single. Lots of women will tell you that if you’ve got it, flaunt it, no matter what your age.
Can we really be objective about ourselves? I think if you look young, or keep in shape, that you can wear whatever shows off your assets. But I also think women who are obviously past middle-age running around in hot pink Juicy Couture suits look silly. Ditto for teenage starlets wearing matronly dresses on the red carpet...celebrate a hot young bod while you have one!
I believe finding a middle ground is the key. When I put something on, if I feel uncomfortable or secretly wonder if maybe this is a little to short or tight, then I know to go with that instinct and choose something else. For me, the key to looking great is feeling confident in whatever I am wearing.
What’s your take?
So what are YOU wearing to Coachella? Here's what I would wear.Feel free to copy me...Metric has some of the best band Merch!P.S. Are Chuck Taylors still okay?
I can't decide, and I'm not really a hipster so I don't feel comfortable making a definitive statement on that topic.xo,Ap

It’s that time when we are bombarded with all of the fresh new trends for Spring/Summer 2013. It all looks so NEW, you could swear you have nothing like this in your closet...
But what if there’s also next to nothing in your bank account (to spend on clothes anyway)? Never fear Fashionistas. Here is your dose of FashionRx to update your look for spring without breaking the bank!
The Trend: Watercolor Chic
A gorgeous confection of pretty pastels usher in Spring 2013. To create this look with what you already have, just open your closet and reach for for the following items:
Colors: baby blues and pinks, paired with black or white for a more grown-up statement. If you’re over black, use navy or purple for a fresh spring statement.
Accessories: Rose gold, White items like jewlery, belts, etc. and Opals. Actually, an opal is basically your inspiration for this whole look...it blends all manner of pastels and glimmer with the dash of sophistication that defines the look for this spring.
The Fabrics and Prints: Lace. Florals. Snakeskin. All of these lend a pretty blend or bit of texture to your look. Pastel lace is especially hot this season, but if you don’t already have this, slip on your neutral lace piece over a pastel tank or tee to create the same effect.
After you’ve created a fresh wardrobe for yourself with pieces you already own, reward yourself and splurge on something timeless from this trend that will carry you into the fashion-forward future....suggestions for items that look new and won’t get too dated:
Rose gold watch
Opal earrings or pendant
Snakeskin clutch or pumps
A solid dress, jacket, pants, or shell in your favorite pastel can also be a great layering piece for this spring and be easily incorporated into future seasons!
If you haven’t heard of them, Diamond Supply Co.
is a clothing & accessories company that specifically targets skaters (as in skateboards, ya airheads).
I don’t know if it’s the whole “Diamond” thing, or the Tiffany blue shade
that is the company’s signature color, but I found myself NEEDING basically everything Diamond Supply Co. sells that isn’t specifically for the activity of skating (i.e. grip tape), or specifically for boys. Although, I am seriously considering getting a few of the boy shirts and customizing them for me with scissors...
Anyways, check them out here
fashionistas, (or for L.A. locals, they have a store on Fairfax
) and maybe you’ll find your Spring look is Skater-Chic with a dash of Rodeo Drive
. Here are a few of my personal faves:SunglassesBackpack WalletBeanieThis TeeBlanketWomen's tee
So, browse, shop, accessorize, have fun, take lots of pics, and tweet them to me, and don’t forget to #DiamondLife (currently my favorite Twitter hashtag).
I'm purging my closet, and I need your help! I'll be posting pics of my clothes here
and I would love to have my fellow fashionistas vote on whether I should keep or purge the outfits. Check out my first post
Well groomed nails are a perfect accessory, so get yours into the Holiday spirit with this great new collection from Essie - Mirror Metallics.I got "Good as Gold" (2nd to right in the photo) as a freebie from Klout
which is a super-fun website that measures your social media influence. The best part? Sometimes you'll be sent a free product they think you might be interested in--no strings attached!!! Get it on the fun!There are a lot of fun and glitzy nail laquers out there, but this collection is one of my favorites because it creates a classy, understated look. You can combine it with other colors like a rich Christmas red if you are into nail art and create a custom french manicure, or continue the summer's trend of painting a few nails a different complimentary color. The Essie mirror metallics is a refreshing alternative to glitter, and blend well with almost any holiday outfit, and are for the most part understated enough to be work-appropriate.Send us pics of your unique Holiday manicures! You can purchase the Essie Mirror Metallics collection here.
