Hey GirlMoguls, it’s Daisy here – I am back with my next round of wardrobe staples for your back to school fall fashion.   Last time we covered fashion must haves – like the basic white tee and leggings.  So next up are items 3 &4 that will totally fab out your fall wardrobe!

Staple #3 – The jean skirt – yup, one or two jean skirts – not too short, not too long.  Depending on how much flair you can stand check out ones with cool designs on the back pockets, or maybe some embroidery or stitching along the front.  Go for a darker wash – like indigo or dark blue. If you can stock up on more than one, then choose a lighter wash.

Staple #4 – The tank – a plain tank in a variety of colors –including white and black will go great as the bottom layers for sweaters or other tops – and in the first few hot weeks, might be all you need.  Don’t go skimpy on the straps though  – look for wider straps that won’t slip off.

Ok, so now that you have the basics down, next time I’ll talk about all the mixing and matching you can do create a totally fab wardrobe from these pieces.

Up Gets the Oscar Nomination

Up the Movie wins Oscar Nomination
Up the Movie wins Oscar Nomination

Carl Fredrickson and our favorite Boy Scout Russell are making history. That’s right, I’m talking about the old, frumpy, loveable Carl and the eager, wide-eyed Russell from Disney Pixar’s hit film UP.

UP was extremely popular in theaters, and found fans among people of all ages. The story was sweet, funny, and exciting all at the same time. Plus, the animation and Pixar touch sent the movie to new heights, no pun intended.

Now, we see UP back in the news once more. UP has received an Oscar nomination for Best Picture! This is extremely exciting not only because Disney Pixar got the nomination, but more-so because UP is an animated film nominated for Best Picture. That is a feat in itself! The last time an animated film was up for Best Picture was before we were been born! Can you imagine that?

The last animated nomination went out in 1991 for another Disney film, The Beauty and the Beast.  I still love that movie. Although Beauty and the Beast did not win that year, it blazed a trail for the world of animation. Now, in 2010, UP will do the same thing with its nomination. The really interesting about both movies is that they were both done by Disney production houses. This means that both animated films ever in history to get a Best Picture nomination were both Disney movies!

Well, what did you think of UP? Do you think it deserved the nomination? Tune in on March 7th to see if it wins!
