Neutrals

So, am I the only one who is thrilled that gold and silver have been added to the “neutral” category? Love it!

Failure

Hey everyone, sorry there was no Throwback Thursday or We Style You Wednesday. I have been crazy busy and spent a ridiculous number of hours in the court house today. I promise I’ll be back on the ball next week. Sorry.

On another note. We’ll be out at Rockit Hair Studio tomorrow for Blow Out Before You Go Out! $15 blow outs, wine and snackies! Come out and maybe your picture will make it on the blog!!!

You’re wrong Stylelist, just wrong

Stylelist.com asks Jennifer Lopez to quit her bling? Dead wrong Stylelist. Jenny’s sparkle/glitter/sequins glam is what makes her…her. She is fabulous and loud and she rocks.

Now, we’re not blind at Hi Tona we know she’s made some mistakes but her successes far outweigh those bad choices.

See the slide show, let us know what you think about Jenny’s choices.

Throwback Thursday

We’re back again people! Everyone’s favorite day of the week on Hi Tona…THROWBACK THURSSDAAAYYYY!

Go ahead, play the song, you know you want to.

Today’s Throwbackee is my good friend who will remain anonymous until I get her approval.

As you can see here on the right we have my friend in this fabulous foto from circa 1993. I’m a huge fan of the those little side curls and lets not get started on that Pendleton jacket and the turtleneck. All in all, she was styling and profiling in the early 90’s and in case you don’t realize it scroll back up and watch that video.

Now, my favorite thing about my friend’s style really is her hair. She has an ability to wear her hair short and really pull it off. And even though she has short hair she plays with clothing in a way that never comes across incredibly masculine even when she’s wearing menswear. I think it’s a unique ability to walk that line so closely and come off the wire always looking well put together and cohesive.

Here you see her in the rarely seen but oh-so-awesome short suit combo with delicate top and a tie. And in the following fotos a range of hair lengths, all above the shoulder, and outfits that range from some sort of vacation in the 60’s, to 50’s housewife, to a comfortable combination of mens blazer and a tulip edged shirt.

Here is a woman who has found a style that fits her and she’s comfortable with but it never means that her style is not progressing or evolving.

I think she said it best herself, “Still boldly taking pages out of men’s style books and making them her own.”

Enjoy your Thursday and take risks with your fashion, it’s only one day of trying something new, if it doesn’t work there is always tomorrow.
