I just finished reading this month’s Glamour magazine and feel compelled to discuss the article ‘Is There Such a Thing as "Too Sexy"?’
I found it interesting, controversial, and thought provoking. For example, what did the writer mean by “too sexy”? I assume the writer meant all women should consider covering up their assets more than they do, etc. Although Miley Cyrus and her antics are concerning, she is an entertainer and she seems to be doing a good job at it. My article isn't about whether I agree with Glamour magazine, but it brought up a good point and sparked the idea for this article.
I believe you can appear more fashionable if you remain mysterious and play up your assets. Sometimes a hint of cleavage is nice, and other times it's overkill. There are always variables. If your makeup is loud, then your cleavage needs to speak at a lower volume. Like everything in life, there should be a balance.
However I also believe that sometimes we should forget about the concept of balance. Sometimes you want to wear full blown makeup and a short sexy dress to let loose your wild side after you've been wearing a work suit all week. When life is dull, you can make it more exciting by wearing a bright color to brighten up your dull winter look.
But, for this article, let’s play dress up and intensify your wardrobe for the sake of excitement. Crushed orange anyone? This long sleeve one shoulder orange mini is an instant nip and tuck if you ask me. It is absolutely flawless, but remember to get a base tan before wearing it so you can confidently strut your stuff in this simply sizzling dress.

Okay, so I am on a bright color theme. Check out this strapless yellow pencil skirt dress. This dress makes me want to work out and plan a girls night out a.s.a.p.
This hip hugging dress is a warm weather motivator for the great season ahead. Last year the floral explosion dominated fashion trends. Even though this trend will never die, this year designers will feature solid colors with eccentric blocky designs. So, try easing into the architectural season in 2014. I figure I will start with the solid color first.

I love this white lace dress. I think of Cindy Crawford back in the day when I see this dress. I am not sure why, but it resembles her effortless sexy walking-on-the-beach look well. Although I highly dislike the shoes that are paired with this dress in the picture, I trust my readers have better taste.
