Pink Slip Music Festival Kimonos

Too Attached To Your Fringe With Benefits?

Lose the Fringe Kimono for Next Year’s Music Festival

Fringe kimonos were huge this season, especially at music festivals. The free-flowing, light weight fabrics and shake-ready hems encompassed the characteristics of a modern-day flower child. With help from celebrities who frequently don the boho-style, like Vanessa Hudgens, this particular look easily trickled down to the streets and into stores. Sadly, with the onset of fall and winter, boho chic for this season is fading to black and may be too stuck in last season’s closet for it to resurface for 2015.

Often paired with crop tops, distressed denim shorts, ankle booties, and a wide brim hat, fringe kimonos top off effortless looks with a featherweight touch. However, fringe has a habit of making its way back into our wardrobes with an element of out-of-date trendiness. Let’s avoid any wardrobe fads and axe the fringe hem before it makes it to the sale section of Urban Outfitters.

For next year’s music festival style, go for romantic patterns and diaphanous looks. Beaded, decorative fringe will also make a splash, wavering from the western feel of 2014. For an even more sleek finish, opt for suede in a deep, luxe hue adding decadence to your hit outfit.

Plan for next season and ditch the 2014 fringe kimono wardrobe fad. Fringe Kimonos are getting The Pink Slip.

Those Nails! YIKES!!

Hello everyone!

You can call me Make It Work Molly- Miss Pink Slip Fashion and I “met” one another through the Lucky Blogger Community and I’m so excited to be syndicating my own blog posts here!

Now that we have introductions out of the way, let’s get along to what I think needs to be given the pink slip. Nail art. And not all nail art is bad, but I’m talking about the outrageous patterns that clash with your outfit unless you’re in all black/white/grey tones.

I really really really HATE the multiple patterns and drawings and gems that people stick on their nails. First of all, let’s be honest, how long does that stuff actually last? If you’re anything like me and do absolutely anything with your nails there is no WAY it lasts past the picture. It just can’t.

A quick Pinterest search pulls up some fun ones:

I mean for real seriously? I truly hope if I were a guy and I went out with a girl with THIS on her nails for Valentine’s Day that I would find some way to sneak out the window of the restaurant bathroom. Yuck.

 

Oh this is another fun one:

I am truly concerned about the amount of time that you literally have on your hands (pun intended) if you have the time to paint itsy bitsy leopard dots on top of your gold French manicure.

OMG.

With nails like these, I’m afraid to even criticize. You could literally claw my eyes out.

 

I think y’all get the point. So anyways- please, give this trend the pink slip!!
