McQueen-The Documentary

Posted By: Terri
Category: Designer Spotlight

McQueen…. the movie is a quick yet intimate “behind the scenes documentary” about this uber private and immensely talented yet possibly tortured soul of the late designer we came to know as Alexander(Lee) McQueen.

If you’re looking for a movie/documentary that’s heavy on fashion and provides a story line that is both happy and tragic-I have just the flick for you. McQueen- a documentary that explores the life of British fashion designer Alexander McQueen, who started his career in his teens before gaining notice as designer for Givenchy and launching his own label, which continues to this day. He took his own life in 2010 at the age of 40.

The film has a brief viewing time of 111 minutes and includes intimate footage of his early years growing up in London’s east end, family life complete with touching commentary by his beloved Mother, his first foray into the design world as a Bespoke tailor on Savile Row (where he learned those extraordinary tailoring skills-which became synonymous with the McQueen label) and in a riveting story line provides the viewer with all the twists and turns of his ultimate discovery,extraordinary career success and personal demise that ended in his suicide in 2010.

I was entranced by this film,the fashion,the cast of characters he was surrounded by and the steady rise and heartbreaking demise of this creative genius known as Alexander McQueen.

It’s the weekend. A time to rest up and recharge your batteries.

Take time this weekend to realllly relax! You and your brain need to unplug from everything that takes your focus and just BE. Put down all your electronic devices, shut down every bit of social media and just breath into being you.

White Pant Rules

Just about every Glamour Girl knows that wearing head -to- toe basic black can make you “appear” slimmer and taller-hence the reason why we have oodles of black in our closets.

But ….it’s still summer and before we break out all that black for fall there’s still time to wear white- as in your basic white pant because not for noth’n they go with EVERYTHING! That’s the good news. The not so good news is that white pants can make you appear heavier IF you don’t abide by a few simple tried and true style rules:

Numero Uno! #1. Fit is KEY. Make sure your white pants fit you PERFECTLY. There should be no signs of pulling/stretching (aka thigh lines going horizontally) or gaping. Both issues only accentuate one’s figure flaws and I don’t think THAT’s the look that anyone is going for. Bear in mind that nobody and I do mean No BODY has a perfect figure so don’t be hard on yourself. Get a pair of white pants/jeans that fit you in the hips and thighs and if need be have the waist tailored to fit.

2.White has no filter! If you choose to wear white anything-it must be lined or made in a fabrication dense enough to not see -through. No one needs to see your pocket or pantie lines.

3.White can go from chic to shabby in a matter of seconds if you have a spot, splatter or sweat stains on your garment. Proper cleaning and maintenance is key when it comes to wearing white and looking right.

Lipstick Love

Posted By: Terri
Category: Beauty

I KNOW this past Sunday was National Lipstick day. If I had my way EVERYDAY would be National Lipstick Day. Lipstick is essential to life or at the very least the one make up staple that I strongly feel you should never be without. ..and by “without”… I  really mean-DON’T even think of leaving the house without it on. You can go without mascara, eyeliner, blush,maybe even foundation,BUT I can’t even process going out of the house with out wearing lipstick. I think it is one of the greatest inventions EVER! Lipstick brightens up your face, adds a pop of perk to your complexion and is available in every price point soooo no one needs to ever be without at least one shade of lipstick in their make up bag.
