I’ve heard many people say that the anonymity of the Internet gives people a platform to say whatever they want. However, with today’s world of connecting Yelps to Twitters to Facebooks and everybody and your grandma being on every social network, how anonymous are we really?
I don’t know about you, but I personally don’t feel at all that I can say whatever I want online. (That’s right, you’re getting me filtered. Imagine what unfiltered sounds like!) In fact, I pause before I leave a single comment on Facebook these days – even on superficial stuff like fashion, celebs and beauty – because I don’t want to get chewed out in a reply by my next door neighbor about Trayvon Martin, or get a cold stare + lecture at Thanksgiving dinner for having posted a pic of Kim Kardashian’s glazed donut-butt.

Like most women, one of my great joys in life is some luxurious undies. But many of us are plagued by the high prices and limited size selection at the big boys of the lingerie industry. Get a clue: not all of us are sized like or paid like Heidi Klum, people. Continue reading “Lovely Lingerie From Adore Me” »
It’s a topic we’re encouraged not to discuss: panties. What you wear outside is fair game for fashion blogs the world over, but there’s a reason what’s underneath that topic layer of clothing is referred to as your “unmentionables”. Well, here on Sassy Dove we like to break with convention and say screw taboo – let’s talk undies.
U by Kotex gets it – they know our lovely skivvies are constantly ruined by “that time of the month”, and they want to help with their #SaveTheUndies campaign.
Today we’ll be discussing the most rarely visible kind of fashion (but that’s okay, it’s the one you get to see, and you’re the most important audience). in Latin class we used to make a bad joke: “Semper ubi sub ubi”. It means, literally, “Always where under where”. (Get it?) But what panty type is best when?
Without further ado, here are my picks for the best kinds of panties for various occasions:
Panties For Workouts
Color doesn’t matter. The word here is seamless in the crotch. Having an unfortunately placed seam is devastating in an intense workout. I know, I’ve been there. Something without elastics in the leg holes is also best, to avoid constricting your blood flow. Continue reading “U By Kotex & Panties For Every Occasion” »
My first book Go From Blog to Brand in 30 Days dealt specifically with branding yourself and your website, so I was delighted to find an entire chapter devoted to personal branding in Malene’s book. Malene outlines the visual elements of branding a website with examples from internet fashion giants. Malene goes on to talk about the more philosophical aspects of branding, and resounds with one important point I could not agree with more: treat your blog (fashion or otherwise) like a business.
Jorgensen’s book overflows with usefulness; as I perused her legal, organizational, and financial advice for bloggers, I wished I’d found it back when I began my blogging adventure and spent lots of time on the “error” step of trial-and-error. She even includes a sample business plan to help you make sure you cover all the bases, and monetization advice (the topic covered in my second book The Foolproof Guide to Monetizing Your Blog) for bloggers looking to leverage their site into some dough.
Ladies looking to blog about fashion as a career would be remiss to pass up on How to Become a Fashion Writer. Check it out on Amazon or visit Malene’s website to learn more.
I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Like most ladies, beauty isn’t my only girly interest; I’m also a lover of fashion. I’m fascinated by the beautiful models, high gloss photography and the elegant, sometimes artistic nature of it.
My favorite fashion trends are preppy, conservative looks a la Blair Waldorf. I love Peter Pan collars, bows, and neutral colors. Charlotte from Sex & The City is my fashion idol – I love her buttoned-up Ralph Lauren look. Prints of tiny graphic animals are amass in my closet to the point of being a joke among my friends. I’m also very keen on tights, leggings and over-the-knee socks and boots, and my closet is filled with skirts and dresses to accompany them. I almost never wear pants or jeans. Prep school galore!
