Models Bang it Out

with 0 Comments

I'm thinking of getting a haircut this weekend and am debating whether or not to depart from my signature style cut.

This is a big step for me. Me and my bangs go back a long way. We played in the sandbox together at age 3 and collected Strawberry Shortcake and Cabbage Patch Kid dolls up until the fifth grade. We parted ways, literally, for most of my middle school years with my fringe making brief appearances here and there throughout high school, but we weren't in a fully committed relationship.

Then my bangs and I rediscovered one another (I think on Friendster), and now we have been inseparable for the past five or so years, through the good hair days and the bad hair days.

I would like to try something new, but I feel locked in.

If any of my readers out there have a preference, let me know, but please don't suggest the Rachel, dreds, a mullet, fro or beehive. That's not Sammy's style.

I received a fun email forward this morning containing a batch of clever demotivational posters, so I decided to craft my very own for today's Model Pose because 1). it's Friday, and 2.) we could all use a little demotivation.

model motivational posters.JPG

One of the many things I learned during Miami's Swim Fashion Week is that models have guts, just like us.

They may be teenie weenie mini guts, the size of a mini stack of silver dollar pancakes, but they're there and sometimes they need some help sucking it in.
model spanx2.JPG

Years ago, on those rare days when I would wake up carrying a food baby from the overindulgent evening before, I would slip on a pair of ratty pantyhose with the legs cut off. Then, lo and behold, Spanx were created! But as much as I love my Spanx, I would never want my boyfriend to see me in them. Flesh colored scuba shapers aren't really much of a turn on, are they ladies?

I recently discovered this secret little lingerie/shapewear line that I've fallen in love with. It's called Du Mi, and it does me right.

Du Mi is an organic cotton Italian made lingerie line that doubles incognito as high impact shapewear. Referred to in the fashion biz as the “Skinny Girls Secret”, Du Mi panties, camis, tanks and thigh shapers look prettier than anything in a blushing bride's trousseau, while smoothing shapes and sculpting away. Wherever you need a lift, Du Mi has you covered with cheeky boy briefs, tummy control thongs and total body sculpting boy shorts and bra tanks that conceal every flaw.

shapewear for women.JPG

Finally, shapewear styles that transcend your average granny girdle style shapewear garments. Disguised as sexy lingerie in shades of taupe, black and leopard prints, Du Mi appears to be designed more for play than work, but oh how they work. The fabrics are soft, luxurious, lightweight and gift women with gorgeous silhouettes whether they're wearing low-rise jeans, high-waisted skirts, or any other flirty and fitted looks in their wardrobes. Who knew shapewear could be good for the environment, feel comfy, hold it all in, and look sexy as all get out?

I'm loving this line so much, it makes me want to break out in song...

Du Re Mi Fa So La Ti Do!

Model beach day

with 1 Comments

model topless.JPG
Memorial Day weekend is coming up, and this model wasn't prepared. She forgot all of the major items on her beach checklist including SPF Sunscreen, swim goggles, pail and shovel and uhh...her bikini top. She does get points for toting a hot beach towel featuring a hippie chick with wicked dreds though.

Dry off your bits and pieces after a dip in the ocean while accessorizing your perfect beach ensemble with stylish beach towels that say "Yeah, I'm cool enough for you to sweat on me."

If you like the towel shielding the model's boobies above, you're in luck. You can score this exclusive Lauren Moshi Beach Towel from Bloomingdales for free now through Monday when you spend 200 smackers or more on any Y.E.S. Contemporary Sportswear purchase.

And if you hate tanlines, Cool Tan Swimwear has some righteous tan through bikinis that allow you to tan as if you were topless, only you won't get arrested like Boobie Flash Gordon up there.

To fur or not to fur.

with 3 Comments

I have this picture of me when I was three, bundled up in an Eskimo coat smiling like a crazy kid with my baby teeth chattering, a toddler Nanook of the North if you will. I often wonder if that fur circling my face was real or faux. If that fur had been real, would my three year old self be doused with red paint today by extreme animal rights activists?

I'm guessing it wasn't real. Why would Mom waste money on a real fur lined coat for a three year old girl who would ever so stylishly grow out of it in a month or two? Not to mention all the snot I'd probably get on it.


As the weather continues to cool, loads and loads of fur coats are coming out to brave the harsh winter and the even harsher folks from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals organization, better known as PETA.

Fur coats used to serve as symbols of status and decadence in days of old. There was no better way to show off and tell your neighbors "Hey, I'm so rich I wear animals". Then it was diamonds and furs, today it's sunglasses, shoes and handbags that relay images of wealth. Interesting how times have changed, although diamonds are still pretty schnazzy.

Personally, I don't get the real fur thing. Besides adding lots of bulk, why would you want to wear the fur of a helpless creature when there are just as many amazing faux fur designs that feel and look just as luxurious? If you don't believe me, check out Fabulous-Furs- the authorities on guilt free fur. You'll be bound to find a cool fur accented piece of outerwear, fur sure.

Before I get any comments requesting I post that three year old Eskimo photo, don't bother.

It ain't happening.

With a country amidst the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression, it seems fiscally irresponsible to spend a gross amount of money on an accessory... but that still doesn't change the fact that if I won the lottery, I'd loosen the purse strings and buy this Coach Mirrored Julianne Bag for $1,100.

Call it an eleven hundred dollar bailout.

Sweater Dress for Success.

with 0 Comments

Monday was the first official day of Autumn, and it's time to start dusting off those old sweaters you packed away last Spring. That is if you live someplace other than Miami. I'm still wearing a bikini top to work.

Treat yourself to a sweater spree and choose from a warm, fuzzy stock of sweater dresses, cardigans, cowl necks and argyles just waiting to keep you snug.

Just stay out of Heathcliff Huxtable's closet...unless you're looking for a Jello Pudding Pop.
