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.

ESPECIAL!

So, I got a gift certificate from Avenue and had to use it before the 30th. Got online yesterday only to find out that I had to use it in the store. I’ve gotten a bunch of coupons from them and always forget that they have deadlines and I miss out, so I was determined to get me $20 worth.

I grabbed the oh-so-hungover DancinAssassin, El Hitoncito and we went to chubby girl store.

It was great. 1) HUGE SALE! (hurry run fast to Avenue it’s a crazy sale) Half the store is on clearance for less then $20 2) I grabbed a skirt that was $5 instead of $10 and 3) Clearance item’s are WAY cheaper in the store.

So I got these:

They no longer have that one online so if you click on the picture it takes you to a patterned version of the dress. There were still some more at the store on Menaul if you want to go in.

and I got this skirt

I’m wearing it today. Super comfy and looks great for work. I’m loving the slide slit too.

Diane von Furstenberg at Bloomingdales

I think Diane von Furstenberg is a genius. I really adore most things she does.

There’s some new stuff at Bloomy’s, I got an email this morning.

Here are a few of my faves.

Tony’s!

I’m late on my review of all the amazing dresses worn at the Tony’s this year.
So here they are!!

Hosting again this year was NPH, he and his husband both look handsome, per use.

My idol, Phylicia Rashad and her gorgeous daughter, Condola who played “Cheryl” in  “Stick Fly”.

                                       

Dramatic floor length dresses are always on point at the Tony’s. There is a touch more class associated with this award show over any of the others.

There always has to be “that guy” or in this case “that lady”. Here we have Laura Linney and Jada Pinkett Smith wearing short dresses and both looking phenomenal. Stepping away from maxi dress, nude colors and neons, which are all in style, both of this women grab on to something new, different and maybe a glimpse of what’s in store for the fall. And let’s not forget they’re both over 40, don’t they look great!

The most talked about outfit of the evening was this one. @gabbyralphie tweeted that she loved it but there have been responses all over the board. Your thoughts?

And, just because I like to add video’s to my post, here is my favorite Tony’s acceptance speech of all time. (And nicely ties in to our next post.)

Who Wore it Best?

We’re back for our second installment of “Who wore it best?”

This weeks fashion doppelgängers are:

Beyonce

and Lady Gaga

As we saw with last weeks post, the ladies are wearing slightly different versions of the same dress.

Does it make them “different” dresses?

Who do you think wore it best?

Today’s featured throwbackees are…(drumroll please)…

My Momma and her best friend LW.

This is a foto from when they went to go see Cameo. Yeah, you read that right and they got to hang out with them. Jealous much?

I’m pretty sure most of the stuff they’re wearing is back in style. I mean, how many ways can I want that white clutch? It’s awesome and I bet it was real leather.

Who wore it best?

It’s fair to say that The Duchess and Kimmy K. have rather differing styles. Fair to say. So, how the both ended up in the same red, pleated Alexander McQueen dress is beyond me. Other then, you know, it’s super cute.

Check out the link to the Global Grind look book and tell us: Who wore it best?

Easy ways to spruce up your summer wardrobe

In this economy we all can’t run around buying all the awesome new things that in style this summer or we’d never pay rent because that’s just not responsible.

Here’s an article from my favorite fashion site Refinery29 on a few key pieces that can change up your game without forcing you to eat ramen noodles for 3 months.

My favorites are the Maxi Dress:

I am the queen of the maxi, skirt, dress, I don’t care as long as it hits my toes and makes me feel like a princess. I pair them up with a blazer and heels and it’s totally work appropriate. I have yet to wear a maxi to court, but I’m getting there.

I’m fairly certain pointy pumps

    never

go out of style. I love them. Black is classic but with all the attention nude heels are getting I think it’s a great buy for summer. These BCBG’s are great but check these out at Target, only $30 and patent leather!

Another recommendation is a new pair of sunglasses. I bought these two this weekend at Avenue for $12 (for both of them!)

I’m kind of in love with sunglasses these days considering; 1. I live in New Mexico and the sun shines all the f-ing time about 360 days a year, and 2. Since my hair is crazy long right now they double as a stylish headband. Genius.

Here’s a pic of my famous “Lady Gaga” glasses I got for Mother’s Day this year from Birdland on Central.

Send us some pics of your favorite lentes or your favorite places in and around Burque to pick up sunglasses.
