I’m attending a pool party soon and I don’t know what to wear. I want to look cute but not like I’m trying to hard, any ideas?


As a southern, pool parties are near and dear to my heart. The only way to beat a scorching hot day is to get dressed up and party around the perimeter of a pool. All jokes aside, pool parties can be a very tricky wardrobe situation. Personally, I would recommend wearing an all black swimsuit which pairs easily with a multiple of looks.

Francy Answers: What to wear to a casino


Spending the night out on the town can be a lot of fun. However, for some women ensuring the night’s success starts with being selective about what she will wear. Certain activities or venues necessitate a certain manner of dress. Take playing roulette at a casino as an example. This is a particular place that requires a certain level of dress. If this fails to be achieved, it could result in being denied access to the casino. Also, overdressing can make one stick out like a sore thumb. Therefore, properly dressing for a casino night is incredibly important.


Francy Answers: How to transition your dresses into Fall/Autumn

dresses in the fal

Dear Francy,
I’m more of a dress and skirt kind of girl and now that the weather is getting colder, I was wondering if you have any tips for how to wear dresses in the Fall. This is my first Fall up north and I’m nervous about the transition. Thanks so much!

1. Tights are your best friend. Don’t even attempt to wear a dress without tights (or a similar contraption for those into retro guarders and things) once the weather starts to get chilly. For some ladies the thought of wearing tights and stockings may cause them to conjure up images of their mother (or even grand mother) but these accessories are definitely not a thing of the past. These days tights come in thousands of styles, looks, and forms: all perfect for younger (and older) generations alike.

Now that those gruesomely hot days have past, our closets needs a little time and TLC to get it in gear for the Fall days ahead. Below are a few tips on how to get your wardrobe transitioned into Fall.

Francy Answers: How to apply stick foundation

Dear Francy,

Not sure if you have any experience with this but I recently heard about stick foundation and I’m interested in trying it but I have no clue how to wear it. Have you worn it before and if so how? Thanks for your help!


Stick foundation may not be as common as liquid and powder, but it has actually been around for quite some time. Stick foundation is basically cream foundation in a stick applicator. Like other cream foundation formulas, stick foundation can provide medium to full coverage, depending on application amount.

Stick foundations give concentrated strokes of foundation when applied, so it’s best to use a sponge applicator over other brushes to evenly distribute the foundation all over your face.

Recently I tried the Maybelline Oil Free Foundation stick (look out for a review on this foundation) and created a tutorial on how I applied it. Below are step by step instructions on how I apply my stick foundation and the products that I used.
