Get ready to take your wardrobe to new degrees with the shade of Tangerine! That’s right the ripening orange hue is one of the year’s juiciest color. And, we can’t help but to notice the fruit inspired color on everything, from fingertips, lipsticks, clothing and accessories. Not quite Red, yet not quite Orange….Team Tangerine has officially started a takeover! Since the beginning of Spring our celebrity fashionista’s have been awaking their wardrobe with Tangerine. When Beyonce made her first appearance after giving birth to Blue Ivy; her radiant tangerine dress didn’t go unnoticed. The universally appealing shade made her the talk of the town the very next day.
Your stylizing options are endless when you’re basking in glowing shade. You can sweeten up your look with neutral tones or “go bright or go home”, pairing it with other bright colors for a color blocking masterpiece. You know you can always rock Tangerine accessories for a smaller approach.
Team Glam-Aholic’s mission is to make your wardrobe effortless and inexpensive, so we created “3 Ways to Wear Tangerine”. It’s our cheat sheet to rockin’ this poppy punch hue no matter the occasion. When you add one Tangerine item to your look, you’ll stand out rather than be overlooked.
Although Summer is almost over, you can still put it on smash by adding Tangerine to your wardrobe and carrying it over into Fall!

Now is the time of year us fashion enthusiasts love! We get to take a look back at another wonderful year and highlight some of our favorite looks. With 2012 a few days away, we find ourselves both sad to see another great year in fashion come to an end but extremely excited about what’s in store for 2012!! Although picking just 10 looks didn’t come easy, we searched though our image archives for several days, nail biting before making our final selection. So without further ado, in no particular order… let the countdown begin!
Now let’s get ready for the new trends & looks of 2012!
@GlamaholicLife & @arjaunjubri
The strong, bold and striking color red is blazing hot all over the red carpets, magazine spreads and runways! This fierce color looks great when partnered with prints, navy and camel. It’s kinda like mixing hot and cold to create a warm color palette and a wonderful outfit. Turn heads and make a statement in an all red look from head to toe, like Kerry Washington! Who said wearing red on the carpet was a crime? Kerry for sure made that “don’t” a “do” lol! Scared to walk on the bright side? Try pairing a neutral with a red, to tone it down so that you won’t feel overwhelmed with the color. Auntie June and Chanel Iman, went this route by pairing their bold cocktail dresses with nude platforms.
The 3 K’s shows how to rock the color 3 different ways. Kourt completely covered in red, Kim mixing the shade with a neutral pump and Khloe rocking it out with animal print and denim. The different styles that you can achieve with the color red are endless..
If red isn’t your color, give raspberry or burgundy a try instead! Solange and Emmanuelle Chriqui look retro chic in their burgundy trousers…
Confess Your Glam, are you a fan of the color red in your wardrobe?
New York Fashion Week 2011 was M A J O R! Aside from the great shows, I believe that these ladies made more noise than the actual models on the runway! Nicki sitting front row with thee Anna Wintour, Beyonce’ glowing with her new baby bump, Angela Simmons and Solange’ switched up their looks every chance they could…we could hardly keep up! And Auntie June Ambrose served us just the way we like it
Angela’s bold bright neon style was definitely a big hit at NYFW! Her pop of color footwork paired with a basic fit made her simple look jump outside of the box. The young mogul even got a chance to vamp it up wearing a dark burgundy lip, trench and oversized sunnies. We couldn’t keep up with her, she gave us a different look with each wardrobe change. The definition of style!
Nicki Minaj made her rounds @ NYFW in her “over the top” statement looks. It’s Fashion Week and Nicki went all out! Her quirky style must be making a lot of noise to the right ears, she seems to have won over the approval of Anna Wintour! Not many can say that lol!
My love Solange, got her shine on! Her fearless style graced front rows and declared her a fashion icon! The songtress/songwriter rocked everything from tribal patterns, a plum maxi skirt, multi-prints and eclectic jewelry. Ms. Knowles even sported our favorite accessory…a naturally curled afro weave/wig, the perfect way to top off any ensemble!
Seeing Auntie June’s hot pink tailored pant suit and orange fedora was enough, she didn’t have to go any further! But of course she did. Showing us how to properly rock the menswear trend with the perfect recipe of a top hat, black tuxedo jacket, sequins skinnys and satin bow-tie. As we all know she can’t complete a look without her signature Ruby Woo!
Pregnant women take notes, you can still be stylish with a growing belly! With her chubby cheeks and growing boobs, Beyonce looked radiant in her gold sequin wrap dress and Louboutin peep toe pumps. A Michael Kors cut-out gown that fell perfectly to mask what everyone is dying to get a picture of! Momma Bey proves she is still the hottest chick in the game, no longer rocking his chain…but now his baby bump!
Confess Your Glam, who’s style did you love the most during NYFW?
Black is always “in” so this definitely is not a new trend! Today’s black is edgy, rock & roll and at the same time remains smooth and classic. It remain the perfect staple color for every season. Want to look effortlessly chic?! Pair an all black look with a bold print, like Rihanna spotted in leather pants and oversize sweatshirt and houndstooth pump…
To keep your “all black everything” from looking to serious pop in some color for fun. Khloe’s neon lime Berkin bag gives her all black ensemble a playful edge.
The classic style is still alive and CHIC! Auntie June’s top hat, crochet dress, draped jewels, larger than life dark shades and signature Ruby Woo screams FASHION!!
While Heidi kept it very rock and roll with her loose fitted blouse, belted skinnys and pointed black pumps…
One thing is for certain, you can never go wrong when wearing black!

It was soooo many photos taken during this exciting night! We will just live through these pictures for now and cross our fingers in hopes of being able to celebrate Fashions Night Out in NYC for 2012! I would absolutely love to smell fashion all night and soak up the energy from the atmosphere. Everyone looks like they had a B A L L!
While heading out to my good friend Alisha’s (KeepItPosh), surprise birthday dinner…I decided to rock a turban for the evening. Well after realizing that I’d thrown away some fabric that I was gonna one day use to make a turban, I was highly upset with myself. I looked around my closet and immediately came up with an idea to cut up one of my old dresses and use it as one! I mean really…I’m at least 20lbs heavier from when I first purchased the dress and the only time it would ever be worn again would probably be around the house or to bed as a night gown lol! So I grabbed a pair of scissors and went to work…
Seeing how it was a “tank top” dress, I cut the bottom half off for my turban and this is what I came up with…
So the story gets better! While walking to the restaurant, I tweeted a picture of my outfit stating that I was “getting my @JuneAmbrose on” (hence the turban) Welllll, what do you know
my Auntie June Ambrose retweeted my look!
I would be lying if I said this tweet didn’t rock my world! Although in the picture it does look as if though I’m color blocking with yellow and blue, it was actually a yellow button up top from Forever 21..paired with a really old pair of skinny jeans and of course that dress that I had turned into a turban
I’m sure all of my loyal readers know how much I LOVE my
Auntie June Ambrose! Well recently while on Twitter, I tweeted the last StyleClinic post that I’d made featuring her advice on wearing shorts. Well to my surprise I received a direct message from her… *faints*
Although this isn’t my first message from her , I may be buggin’ out a little. Maybe she had an intern or assistant send me this right? Because if not, then this means that THEE June Ambrose, saw my tweet…clicked the link…came to ConfessionsOfAGlamAholic.com…read my post…viewed my picture and told me to “keep up the good work”, right?!? I’m having a moment.
I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, this is like Michael Jordan sending a message to an aspiring NBA player. She just doesn’t know how much this one small message means to me
