I was NEVER a dress girl…it was always too much hassle to make sure you couldn’t see through it or if you had the right bra or shoes to go with it. And they usually weren’t all that comfortable! However, with the trend of all kinds of dresses exploding this summer, I find myself wearing more of these comfortable, cotton dresses!

Dresses are no longer just seen as a “fancy” clothing item. They come in simple black, cotton dresses for summer or even work as a bathing suit cover-up. I see girls all over wearing dresses just as everyday wear instead of jeans and a T-shirt.

While searching for the latest dress trends for the spring/summer I came across a website that predicts trends called MillionLooks.com. They broke down the coolest dress trends for the year!

My favorite so far have been the “Light” Dress. Unlike a stiff dress, this one is free and inviting which is perfect for the heat of the summer! The most popular styles in “light” dresses are florals which is also a HUGE trend for this summer!

Another great look is the “strapless” dress! It’s so elegant and sophisticated and makes any dress look GLAMOROUS! It’s a perfect way to showcase you shoulders and make way for a beautiful necklace!

Joey Eric just got some GREAT new dresses that follow many of the trends I found on the website, and they are in beautiful colors for summer!

Here are three Joey Eric dresses. On the left, you have a "light" dress perfect for summer with ruffles! And in the center, you have the perfect strapless dress! And what a great color!

I’m loving this purple color for summer too! It’s perfect for all of you sun-kissed cuties with an amazing tan for the summer! I know I’ve been changed by this ever popular trend of dresses…have you???

Until next time….LOVES

“Not-so-Safe” Trend Alert!: What Big Eyes You Have! July 6, 2010

Lady Gaga has been a fashion icon since her music first appeared on the music billboard’s with “Just Dance” and continuing with songs like “Alejandro” and “Paparazzi.” However her song, “Bad Romance” has caught lots of attention with the larger-than-life eyes featured in part of her music video.

Woman across the country are now buying these contact lenses to give them the same effect. While Lady Gaga’s may have been computer generated, countries like China and Singapore are developing these FDA unapproved lenses for a price.

In Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance" video, her eyes appear larger than normal with an enhanced pupil size. Woman around the country could be hurting their eyes by copying her style.

According to an article in the New York Times, “these contacts, known as “circle lenses”, are colored contacts — sometimes in weird shades like violet and pink — that make the eyes appear larger because they cover not just the iris, as normal lenses do, but also part of the whites”…..can you say CREEPY?!

Illegal and Dangerous??

It is illegal in the U.S. to be selling contact lenses with NO prescription, however some women are known to be having as many as 20 or 30 pairs of these lenses!! In all different colors!

They have become mainstream in places like China, Singapore and Korea because of the “anime” look they give young girls. However, American optometrists say the circle lenses are dangerous to the eye and could cause the eye to not get enough oxygen and eventually cause serious eye damage or blindness.

Not enough research has been done about the lenses, but one fact is for sure…it is extremely dangerous to buy contact lenses without a proper prescription.

Here's a picture of a young girl wearing the circle lenses to give her eyes a purple tint to them. The lenses are already mainstream in Asia and are getting popular in America as well.

Just like all trends, they usually come from a music video, magazine or a picture of a celebrity taking a chance on an outfit. However not all trends are as unknown and dangerous as the Lady Gaga inspired lenses. Who knows how popular they will be and how long they’ll be around?? Have you seen anyone with these “circle lenses??”

For me, why not just draw attention to your eyes with some fancy new make-up or great jewelry on your ears and neck? I guess that’s the thing with fashion….you never really know where it will turn next!?

BE CAREFUL! and Until next time….LOVES
