I’m sure that I can’t be the only one that does it… watch runway and awards shows just to see what everyone is wearing. One of the hottest trends this season are Grecian-style dresses and top – not only do these look flattering to almost any shape, they can be quite simple to make. These designs are typically made from lightweight materials such as chiffon, thin jersey, and even some satins which give these garments the drape and pleats which are the defining element for this style. Don’t know where to start on making this look for yourself or how to handle these materials? This great article by DIY Design will teach you how.

    I so love Blake’s dress! If only I could wear again sexy dresses. Since I gave birth, my weight didn’t go back to normal.. I gained almost 10 pounds after giving birth and up until now, I still have those extra fats. I am such a jealous woman when I see girls being able to wear their bikinis! I am a fashionista by heart so I feel like so deprived of what I enjoy. Yet, I am happy with my baby right now so I just put all my attention to her. But I really hope I would be able to lose all this weight before the year ends. I don’t want my hubby finding another sexy girl :)
