Denim Daze….

Denim will always be in style. Period, end of story. I can’t even begin to wrap my head around a Glamour Girl with a closet not containing some sort of denim. Now if you want a  few quick style tips when it comes to denim here you go:

If you want to look slimmer and taller (and I ask you who doesn’t) go to the darkest shade of denim available. The latest denim on denim trend for fall 2014 works if and only if the denim duos you are sporting are of different textures and slightly different hues of blue. And, last but not least if you find a pair of jeans that look FABULOUS on you but you are questioning plopping down copious amounts of cash think of the price per wear on that pretty pair and you will be AMAZED at how affordable that expensive pair of jeans suddenly appears.

Rebecca Taylor Foil Lace Midi Skirt $550.00

 

Milly Midi Sequin Pencil Skirt $295.00

JOA Sequin Pencil Skirt $98.00

Can you believe it’s the last week of October??? I know-me neither. It seems like we were just basking in the lazy days of summer and just like that BOOM it’s Halloween. Before you can blink you will be toasting the end of another year. How does this happen? It all seems to go so quickly once we hit the end of October. 

BB Fringe by Haute Hippie $695.00

 

Mixed Metal Striped Mini $98.00

I have always subscribed to the notion that a Glamour Girl can NEVER be to  prepared especially when it comes to dressing for the holidays. Most od us have the usual wardrobe suspects-you know the ones I’m talking about-the tuxedo jacket with some feminine flair, the pencil skirt, the perfect party dress. Check, check and check. But what about adding something that has a little bit more POP, more sparkle  that can be paired with a blouse, or sweater or even a jacket… Enter the perfect sparkle skirt. It gives you oodles of options and you can find one at a multitude of price points at Piperline.    To click  on your pick: http://piperlime.gap.com

Sabine Sequin Skirt $119.00

Sophia Webster & J. Crew Collab= Shoe Heaven

How does that saying go? “If it’s not broke than don’t fix it.” Well that would certainly be the case when it comes to the design talents of Sophia Webster (uber fabulous British shoe designer with her own line of shoes who FYI began her career under Nickolas Kirkwood) and J. Crew.

Wayyyyy back in Spring 2014 the first collaboration between J. Crew and Sophia Webster debuted-can we say “sold out” faster than you can click your heels together. So another collaboration followed for Autumn 2014 and you know where this is going-another gorgeous collection-another sell out.  So it’s really no surprise that J. Crew and Sophia Webster have embraced the idea of a Holiday Collection and right on cue the line is available as are most things for holiday-RIGHT NOW. The line consists of 7 styles in a variety of patterns, colors and designs. Price points range from $320.00 to $695.00 and can be purchased online and in select stores including London, New York and Hong Kong. 

Eva T-Strap $595.00

Each and every style is beyond beautiful and will certainly make the simplest of holiday attire attain glamour worthy status. Perhaps even more alluring is realizing that even after the holidays are over you could wear any one of these styles to “pump up” your outfits year round. Don’t you love a little early holiday shopping especially when the person you’re shopping for is you?!

Maybe  “The third try is the charm” but in this case we can only keep our fingers crossed that there will be a fourth collaboration. Thank you J. Crew and Sophia Webster-it’s a collection straight from shoe heaven.

The Passing of a Fashion Legend….

Designer Oscar  de la Renta died yesterday at the age of 82( THAT was the headline heard round the world and on every news channel today). When I saw the scroll on CNN announcing his passing early this morning I was deeply saddened and surprised by what appeared to be this sudden loss to the fashion industry. This was a man who was at the top of his game and looking every inch the dapper gentleman in every photo of late.  It was only weeks ago that he appeared at the finale of his Spring 2015 Collection. Immediately after that he was photographed for Vogue alongside Amal (now Clooney) as the designer of her wedding gown and his Bridal Collection for 2015 had just walked the runways.  In true Oscar fashion he died on his own terms keeping his illness private and passing peacefully at his home surrounded by family. Oscar de la Renta was a true legend in the fashion industry -one in which we will never see the likes of again. He designed the same way he lead his life…. with the utmost of grace, eloquence and style. This was a man who lasted 50 years in the fashion industry, designed gowns for everyone from Jackie Kennedy to Oprah, was a constant designer favorite on the Red Carpet and had a reputation for being one of the most genuine, kind, considerate and talented souls on the planet. God Bless you and your family Mr. De la Renta. You will be deeply missed.

Luxe Tux

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

 

I have always had a “thing” for a great fitting woman’s tuxedo jacket. There’s just something about taking this men’s  fashion staple and amping it up about a thousand notches for a look that’s soft and feminine and utterly fabulous. I know I’m jumping the holidays hoopla  by a smidge or two but let’s face it a  Glamour Girl can never be to ready when it comes to stocking your closet with some classic evening essentials.
