The nation was shocked when superstar Whitney Houston passed away in her hotel room at the Beverly Hilton late Saturday night, just hours before she was supposed to attend a pre-Grammy party. She was 48.
Houston’s known for her stellar singing voice and pop star attitude that brought her to the top of the charts in the 1980’s. Despite recent drug issues, Houston always portrayed herself as a lady of elegance with a keen fashion sense, and what we love, is fashion.
Here is an ultimate 80’s fashion throwback. Whitney pulls out all the great looks — the conservative woman’s suit, the bomber jacket and high-waisted jeans combo, her tight and bright orange single-sleeve dress in her 1987 music video “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.”
Rock that jean jacket, candy colored eyeshadow and big hair like Whitney did. Even if you’re not into her style, there’s no denying that homegirl had some moves.

I don’t know what kind of weather you’re experiencing in your corner of the world, but here in Boston the flowers are practically blooming! With spring in mind, all I can think of is flirty skirts, colorful prints, and crop tops. The Wonder Skirt is fun and totally versatile. The large dots add a playful twist to this great midi skirt.
Mid length skirts can be hard to pull off, but I’d like to offer three different ways in which you can work with this length while keeping it fresh and young. In this first look I go for a white bodysuit with a mesh middle to convert the overall look to one that is sexy and streamlined. Some flat neutral shoes for comfort and a bright trench for those early days of spring. Try teaming up this look with a contrasting print on your bag. Make sure the colors on your bag are similar to the dots on the skirt! Try these pieces: the Bodysuit in Off White by For Love and Lemons, the Petrelli Coat by BB Dakota, and the Spotty Dotty flat from *Sole Boutique.
For my second look I went for a bolder look wearing a red hand knit top (one of my latest thrifted piece), a nice pastel belt to accentuate the waist, some dark wooden bangles, and they’re not shown here, but a pair of neutral or white pumps to top this off. Try the Dee Crop Sweater by Motel and the Cruise Belt by remi & reid.
In this last look I go for a more bohemian look incorporating a cream colored crop top, lots of white bangles, cream colored peep toe booties, and a fringed leather coat. For similar items try the Smocked Seamless Crop Top by Free People and the Anne XII Boot from *Sole Boutique.
