Hope you got a chance to watch the 2013 Billboard Music Awards last night. If not, I'm sure you may have heard a lot of buzz from people commenting on certain moments from the show. Of course, I have to recap the fashion from night, from both their blue carpet before the show and the awards itself. Let's talk about the best (Get Whit It) and the worst (Get Lost)!
Miley wore a standout Balmain jumpsuit with checkered and cutout details with peep-toe pumps and a red lip. Just in time for Indy 500... she made the checkered pattern work for her.
My vote: Get Whit It

Earlier this week Rihanna was spotted in a cute spring look in the streets of NYC. I loved it so much, that I thought it would be a great candidate for a look for less. She wore a BALMAIN Green multicolor Printed Silk Blouse with a BALMAIN Mint green pleated Leather Skirt and nude pumps.
The two items are a splurge ($2,250 for the top and $3,050 for the skirt). Luckily for you, you can easily recreate the look for much less and still look cute. For a similar style, try a striped mint blouse or geometric print blouse with a mix of pastel colors paired with a mint green pleated skirt. Add some nude pumps and you've got the look!

I hope you enjoyed my first blog post on the beginning stages of my weight loss journey. Time for phase 2!
So you have lost over 15 pounds and you are ready to buy more than just a few basics, plus you realize that with the new pounds you have lost, so many things fit and look better on you. You are feeling good and ready to have a little fun shopping!
Well my rule number 1, if you are going to introduce some new things into your closet, get rid of some things as well. It's spring time, so go thru your closet and try on things for a little spring cleaning. Sell the things that don't fit to a thrift shop or use Poshmark (a great app that let's you shop other people's closets and sell things for your own and make cash). Then you will have some extra cash to go shopping for the new things you need. I just sold my first item, some Noir rings that I didn't wear anymore. You can join with my code for a $5 credit using HGWLN. For the things you can't get rid of, give them away to Goodwill.

All the most fashionable stars were in NYC last night to make a statement on the red carpet at the 2013 Costume Institute Benefit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. A few weeks ago while I was in NYC, I actually got a chance to visit the famous museum on 5th Avenue. For the Met Gala, they cover the steps with red carpet which makes a great backdrop for photos of the fab gowns with dramatic trains. The night's theme was PUNK: Chaos to Couture, so many of the looks took inspiration from it.
Let's recap some of the standout looks from the night:
Beyonce brought the drama in a punk inspired Tisci gown with matching thigh-high boots, grommet belt and elbow-length gloves.

Over the weekend, Rihanna sat court side at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn to watch the Brooklyn Nets vs Chicago Bulls game. Rihanna wore cut off cuffed denim shorts with the Givenchy Nappa Leather Top which features Long back panels. Check it out:
The shirt has a hefty price of $2570 - No way would I EVER spend that kind of money on a top. With her pricey piece, she wore gladiator sandals and carried a fold over clutch.
Let us know what you think of the look! Should we get WHIT it? Or should Rih get LOST? My thoughts - Overall the look isn't bad but I feel like the top and the sandals together are a little much.
If you like the look, you can get a similar style with the items below.

OMG! Can you guys believe it’s May already? It seriously feels like time is flying by this year! Which... in a way is good but… I’d like the summer months to move kind of slow since that’s my favorite kind of weather! I’ve been MIA for a while… busy with work and just LIFE in general but I’m planning to head to Miami for vacation! I thought I’d give you all an inside look of some of my vacation picks and what I feel are necessities for almost any vacation.
This trip will be my 3rd visit (pictures above from previous trips). I went with some friends and this time I’m going with Friends and Family. For me – Miami is the next best thing to the Caribbean. You don’t get the island exclusion but you still have the beautiful clear water beaches. Here in VA, our beaches are gross! I leave in a little less than 2 weeks so I’m starting to prepare now.

I (Whit W) went to NYC last week with family for a short vacation. I always love visiting that city and hadn't been since 2011 (we usually went there every Thanksgiving for the past couple of years, but since I just moved in my new apartment last year, decided to stay home to celebrate the holiday). I was excited to be back in NYC and do some of the things I love most: walk around the streets, shop and eat great food! As many times as I have been there (I have lost count), you would think I have done everything there is to do, but the truth is there is always something new and exciting to do so I made sure to plan to visit some new places this time around, as well as some old favorites!
I'll tell you about my NYC adventures and some of the great shopping I did over the course of 4 days! Great finds at Forever 21, Topshop, the brand new Necessary Clothing store on Canal Street, Century 21, Macy's and more!
To start things off, this time we stayed right in the heart of Times Square, a great location right in the middle of everything. Our hotel was right across the street from the Times Square Forever 21, which in my opinion is one of the best ones. It's 4 floors of clothing and if you aren't watching the clock, you can easily spend a few hours in here (I definitely did, which is why I had to make a second trip on another day)! Since I am still on my weight loss journey, I am all about finding cute and affordable clothing, so going crazy in F21 made me happy. I found a bunch of cute tops (some to wear now, some for when it warms up), some inexpensive jeans and a cutout dress that will be cute in the summer.
Below are some of the items:
