And On Wednesday’s We Wear Pink:

Karen Smith may be the dumb one of the mean girls group, but she had it right in pink being a great color.

Whether you wear it on every item of clothing when you were little, or still wear it now, pink is a timeless color that is essential in every girls closet.

Some items in which look best for pink this coming season are in light pastels. For spring it is nice to start off with a light hue or pink and work darker and brighter as the weather gets warmer. Think neon pink as the summer rays start to shine as well.

But remember only on Wednesdays.

Open Up Some Knowledge:

Coming from the bag queen, I am always looking for cool and creative bags to inspire and add to a new outfit choice.

Whether it is going out to dinner or to a party with some friends, statement purses can really make or break a certain look.

One trend of bags I have been very interested in is the “book clutch”. Kate Spade came out with a new line of clutches that has a whole new burst of knowledge. They are wonderful old novels turned into a beautiful everyday clutch.

Turning your favorite novel such as mine; The Great Gatsby; into a clutch that you can keep all your essentials in is a dream come true. Step aside Daisy Buchannon, Short Sister’s are here.

Check out some of Kate Spades looks for yourself and find your perfect read.

Swimming With The High Tide:
As the summer weather is starting to peak out through the clouds, it is time to start thinking about those unmentionable things; bathing suits. You may not be ready to show off your beach bod right now, but that doesn’t mean you have to resort to your boring black one piece.
One beautiful alternative trend that can help you from feeling self conscious in your bathing suit is high waisted ones. They are cute bikinis that are brought up a little higher on your waist to give you a better elongated look.
The crazy patterns and form fitting of the suit will have you feeling fabulous as you soak in those summer rays.
So go try one on for size.

Country Girl Shake It For Me:

At last nights ACM (American Country Music Awards) all the best country stars came out to show what they were made of.

Danielle Bradbery, one of the youngest winners having won the fourth season of the Voice with coach Blake Shelton, strutted her stuff on the red carpet last night wearing an embellished gown with a sheer skirt. Looks like these have her on her way to becoming the next Carrie Underwood.

Taylor Swift made a daring statement by showing her stomach and a bit of legs last night, but we are loving it. Seen in a custom J. Mendel dress and top she was showing everyone that she makes her own country style.

Kellie Pickler didn’t need her red high heels because this outfit was flawless. She was seen wearing a lavender Romona Keveza gown with crystal-adorned belt.

Carrie Underwood was rocking a shimmery fringe Oscar de la Renta dress paired with Jimmy Choo heels and David Yurman Jewelry. She was the perfect all American girl.

With our love for fashion and country music uniting, the ACM awards is one of our favorite times of the year.

Kids Make The Choices:

Last night Kids and adults gathered for some slime time and orange blimps of the year.

We took the Kids Choice Awards into a different perspective in looking at the fashion of the stars on the red carpet. These teens and adults show their green slime style in the best and classiest ways.

Vanessa Marano and sister-Star of the show on ABC family Switched At Birth, switched roles in dressing up in a purple and leather dress.

Lea Michelle- Glee star looked peachy in this lace dress which was a perfect match for her rosy cheeks.

Payton List- Seen on the Disney Series Jessie, is just as sweet on TV as she does on this red carpet. This delicate pale pink dress is perfect with her adorable blond curls.

Sophia Grace And Rosie- looked fabulous as always in matching hot pink tutu dresses. It wouldn’t be a perfect outfit without a tiara.

Hopefully none of their great outfits were ruined by the green slime machine.

Got A Secret Can You Keep It:

Being both crazy fan’s of the hit TV series Pretty Little Liars, it felt like a must to create a post about the characters styles on and off the show.

Every Tuesday we both sit silently in front of the TV at 8 pm without any interruptions and anticipate what will happen to the girls next once A sends their deadly texts. One part of the show we love aside from the thriller of the show is the fashion of the girls.

Here is a list of their styles on and off the show and our interpretation of their fashion sense.

Aria-Also known as Lucy Hale bends the rules with her crazy style on set. Kitty sweaters paired with insanely long earrings and even pink hair at some points, Aria shows her personality through her clothes. Out side of the show she also shows her crazy fashion sense in wearing onesies, still kitty sweaters, and she loves unicorns. (Like really loves them). This is E’s favorite on the show.

Hannah- Also known as Ashley Benson is the girly girl of the show. Wearing nothing but heels all the time, hannah is always seen put together and stylish as ever, except the one time she wears sweats when her and her bf caleb broke up with her. Off the set she bends the rules with fashion showing off black lip stick and killer biker jackets. She is one of E’s favorite off the set.

Spencer- Also known as Toian Bellisario is the goody too shoes of the group. Always seen running around in khaki pants and cardigans it is rarely you will see her wearing anything that didn’t take more than a precise thought to put together. Off of the show she is very sporty in doing her trapeze work outs and running around Paris and London with her now fiance.

Emily- Also known as Shay Mitchell is the more tom boy of the show. Wearing jeans and camo jackets paired with biker boots, or even jean skirts and hoodies, she shows her sporty side of the group. However, off of the show she is very glamorous, always sporting eccentric nail art and gorgeous polka dot dresses as seen above.

Ali- Also known as Sasha Pieterse is not seen too much through the series. In little snip its and flash backs you will see her in her more preppy styled outfits with leggings and a long bright top, but for the most part there is not much about her and her style till this season. Having come back now alive, you will get to see more of her and what she will be wearing, and we can’t wait!

We are watching you, who will you be?

One Two Three Four:

Tell me which bag you love more?

The above six bags are forever going to be in style. Of course, unless your Kim Kardashian, you can’t afford all six.

Here’s the short sister guide to investing in one good designer bag. 

1. Will it match most of my wardrobe?

  • Like A, whose wardrobe is 90% black, she could go with a bright blue leather Antigona bag. If your closet has a lot going on already, you might be safer with a black, brown or nude bag.

2. Does it fit everything you need?

  • E needs it to fit her iPad because she is always carrying it to class and meetings. Make sure to bring items like these with you when you are shopping to make sure they fit. We have all bought bags before crossing our fingers they fit all our junk then get home to realize it’s only big enough for a lipgloss.

3. Is it the right size for you?

  • In college A had this extremely large Marc by Marc Jacobs Tote that swallowed her up. Although it fit five binders, her wallet, camera, laptop, and salad for lunch, it was too large. People often offered to help her because she looked like she would fall over. 

4. How will you use the bag?

  • Are you the type of person who likes the long satchel strap across your body so you are hands free or do you carry your bag on your shoulder? 

5. Will you love it tomorrow?

Before swiping that plastic, be sure to ask yourself the previous. 

Love,

A&E

You Are What You Eat:

What do you get when you mix a newly obsessed smoothie fitness girl who uses her extra cash for Soul Cycle classes with a girl attempting to update her wardrobe to all the new SS14 looks? This post.

If you are what we eat, then I hope to look like any of these SS14 runway models.

Here’s how to eat healthy while looking fabulous in our spring 2014’s smoothie style guide.

Have a green smoothie while sporting Topshop Unique's matching green jacket and skirt this summer.

More of a pink girl? So is Cara. Snag her Burberry Prorsum all lace SS14 look.

Karlie Kloss’ orange DKNY dress would be a perfect match to a carrot smoothie.

Drink up! 

Love,

A

We Would Kill For Those Shoes:
Everyone wishes they could be Beyonce. To have her musical talent, lovely family, rocking body…

But what could be better than being the man whose job is to pick out her shoes.

Beyonce wears crazy designers such as Stuart Weitzman, Giuseppe Zanotti, and Tom Ford. What could be better than strutting across the stage in those killer heels singing to Single Ladies.

There are two pairs of custom-made, thigh-high boots by Pucci and Versace that she loves the most to wear on stage like the ones in the above picture. We may be small and these heels would probably go up to our waists but they are pretty bad ass.

Now we really know Beyonce did wake up like this…FLAWLESS

Orange You Glad I Didn’t Say Banana:

On the spring runways, orange was the IT color. I died seeing the orange lip paired with that white V Neck sweater at the Rag & Bone SS14 show.

Take a tip from Marcus Wainwright and David Neville and ditch the pale nudes and pink lips of the winter and show a brighter hue.

Here are some of the greatest orange lips. I just picked up my new favorite: Maybelline electric orange

Check out my personal Instagram to see what it looks like on a short sister (@Elg113)

Some other great orange lip colors are:

Bright orange by Revlon

Neon Orange by Bobbi Brown

True Orange From Sephora

Sheer Orange From Revlon

Red Orange MAC Cosmetics

Get ready for a bright spring.

White Out:

White out. A common phrase heard while I was living in Upstate New York.

Thankfully, now living in Boston and NYC, there is a new kind of white out. White skirts. I love this trend because I feel like it looks great with anything.

Jean jacket, leather jacket, or oversized sweater.

Button up, vintage band tee, or tank top.

Wedges, heels or ballet flats.

It’s a statement piece. 

I’ve had my eye on the Aqua Scuba Pleated Midi. For a tighter/night out I lean towards the Helmut Lang ‘bonded’ wrap

Love,

A
