Happy 50th Anniversary!!!

This post commemorates my 50th! Woo-hoo! I've decided to make this post a double-on account of the occasion. The first part is going to be about a girl in need of the perfect petite bat-mitzvah event dress-no cleavage and no hassle (when dancing). The second part is going to be about re-creating a gaw-geous celebrity look (it's a surprise...don't scroll down and be a cheater!). They tie together beautifully because helping and re-creating are my favorite things to do on posts!! I hope you this post as if it were marking 50 of em'! (Wait it is...!)

I love those dresses, and I'm attending a bat mitzvah soon, and I'm in desperate need of a dress. I'm rather petite and want something rather conservative (no plunging necklines or v-necks) on top, but the bottoms can't be too long (seriously, who wants to go around holding your dress off the floor?, and I like colors. Can you help? :)...
...Oh, by the way Geisha, forgot to say...I'm on a budget...the dress can't be more than $150, but I'd really like if it was under $100. Thanks if you can answer my bat-mitzvah plea.

- Azur

Okay, I have found the most perfectly petite colorful, non cleavage-enhancing, easy-to-dance in dresses that hopefully- you will adore! Plus, they are all under $150...and none of em' are BCBG!
(One of them is even way under $100!)

All 6 (!) dresses can be found at Nordstroms nationwide!

I adore these two a-line dresses for their vintage Grease appeal and for the fact that they can be varied in so many ways! Wear with a white patent leather headband and matching peep-toes (vintage-y) or go for metallic accessories for something really's really up to you! The first red one is the Bari Jay Strapless Organza Dress for $148 and the second chocolate colored uber-cute polka-dot one is by Eliza J and is the Mesh Dot Halter Dress for a cool $118.

They may look the same...but trust me their not! The gaw-geous aqua one is two-toned and has a slightly different ruching (wrinkly stuff) -approach than the canary yellow one. These two are personally some of my faves, especially the aqua or azure (!) one! They are both by Maggy London and $148.

I paired these two dresses together becuase they just look sort of Grecian which is a big upcoming trend for this season (again). Both are free-flowing and natural, and tend to look better with curves. This is why I picked these two out because they look awesome with or without curves, petite or not. The coral orange one is Maggy London for $148 and the hunter green is by Necessary Objects for $58...yes I know it looks so much more expensive!

Part 2: The Celebrity Look!

And the winner is...Christina Aguilera!!! I picked Christina because never in a million years would I have re-created a look of hers in her X-Tina "Dirrty" days. Now she is so glamorous as if she was a modern Marylin Monroe (NOT Manson!). This is my favorite look of hers (she is in London):

The Look: Mike and Cris leather hoodie, Azzedine Alaia sweater, Hysteric Glamour jeans, Dior bag and Lanvin heels.

Re-Created Look: Old Navy Perfect Fit Tee $10.50 (can be cheap- cotton white tees will always look the same, wether $100 designer or $10 not.), (Nordstrom) JJ Basics Three Quarter Sleeve Cardigan for $32, (Bluefly) Miss Sixty Akbami Jacket $107 (if you can't buy expensive jackets, opt for going to discount places [cheap jackets look cheap]), Alloy Crest Jeans Western Flares $32.50 to $35.50 (same wash, pockets, and shape as the "look"!), Alloy Snow Angel Scarf $32.50 (keeps the look youthful with ribbing and circles on it), Alloy Festive Clutch $24.50- the look just screams part? It doesn't cost designer!, Wet Seal Peep Toe Heels $24.50 (cheap and adorable...Love It!!!...notice how the color of the jacket, spots on heels, and bag all match- that pulls the outfit together), and Alloy Tiered Heart Necklace for $16.50.

Next Up? Swipe on some Revlon Red lipstick and clip on a laquered red barrette on your shiny new platinum 'do- and paint the town red!!!

I Hope You Adored It-50 Posts Worth!!!

Luv Ya, BYE!!!
