Halloween Pumpkin Prep…

Posted By: Terri
Category: Glamorous Decor

FUN FACT….

Halloween is the second most celebrated holiday of the entire year! Christmas still holds the number one spot but seriously (????) Halloween has out -spotted Thanksgiving in the scheme of holiday celebrations!?  THAT is making quite a statement.

Halloween’s style quota  has exploded in terms of  Halloween costumes available for ADULTS, massive and might I add outlandish Halloween parties, and indoor and outdoor decor.

And….speaking of holiday decor..did you get the memo that carving pumpkins  is no more. At the very least there seems to be a major push to paint your pumpkins and if you have the artistic skills of Picasso-well all the better. I could not believe my eyes when I came upon this assortment of pumpkins that would be perfect for porch display.

If you’re looking to put down your pumpkin carving knife and paint a fantastical design this Halloween, here are a few  painted pumpkin options that I hope  will inspire.

Embrace the Cape

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

Its THAT time of year again,when the outdoor temps start to dip but you’re just not quite ready to commit to wearing a full on winter coat. Enter..the Cape. The comfy and oh so style worthy cape is a mainstay in fashion and each and every season you have a plethora of styles to choose from at various price points.

I often get asked by clients how to style a cape and to that I say- there are options galore but when it comes to a cape “less is more” because quite frankly the cape is a statement piece, all on it’s own.

Here are a few suggestions to keep your cape style worthy and add a perfect pop to your outfit:

  1. If you’re opting for a plaid cape or one with a pattern ,keep the rest of your outfit in solid shades that compliment. The Cape will cover enough of your frame that you don’t want to detract from the fashion statement you’re making.
  2. If your cape is in a solid hue consider adding some amazing accessories to amp up the style and accentuate the cape. You can add an amazing brooch,stylish booties and one item with some sort of pattern i.e. blouse, pants, or even footwear. But keep the pattern play at one item  so you won’t  detract from the style statement of your cape.

Trending..The Snakeskin Motif Boot(ie)

Posted By: Terri

Trend Alert.. Attention must be paid to the Snake “effect” boot and booties.

Have you noticed that there seem to be allot of snake “effect”boots  and booties pounding the pavement this Fall? After a bit of “style sleuthing” I deciphered that this new description of snake “effect” is just another term for “faux.”  Although, I’m not a fan of snakes..when it comes to animals and the environment…FAUX is the only way to go .

You can find a bevy of style options- in terms of  boot height, heel width and snake “effect” print,available in a wide range of price points.

The snake effect boot hue can be paired with everything  from jeans to pants to skirts and dresses. It’s a great neutral to add to your wardrobe.

Here are a number of stylish and affordable options-just click on image to go directly to site(s):
