Could anything be better than that?! Gingham has stood the test of time and can be spotted in every design category from apparel to décor. To get you in a gingham mood here are just a few examples of how gingham can make an item pop!

Fit to a Tee

Posted By: admin
Category: Fashion tips

If you haven’t taken note lately of the sudden reemergence of the logo tee  be forewarned it’s BACKKKKKKK and in a BIG way. Logo tee’s are being sported with everything including upscale skirting (think any and all designer brands even Chanel and YES you are reading that right-see exhibit A which would be the first photo posted  below with fringe).

Should you want to get on the logo tee band wagon and really make this look work here are a few tried and true rules for looking stylish.

Your logo tee should fit. Period. End of Story.  Think sleek and chic. Check that the shoulder seams hit your proportion perfectly and please I beg you no baggy tee’s worn to “cover up” a problem area because the problem with THAT idea is it only accentuates the problem. You want to look pulled together not pulled apart.

Dress your tee up or dress it down but the preference should be to tuck in the tails and look polished.

Two resources with some aaaadorable tee’s to consider are Shopbop.com and my latest fashion find for fashionable tee shirts that are so adorable and affordable is Eugoriashop.com ( most of their tee’s are $22.00 and they also do custom. orders. They run a tad baggy so just go down a size for a slim fit).

Pippa’s Perfect Day

Posted By: admin
Category: Fashion

Sooooo the question is: “What do you wear on your wedding day when your sister married the future Prince of England a few years ago and her dress will go down in history?We first  took note of Pippa Middleton as she tended to her Sister Kaon that her sister’s wedding day. Who could forget the uproar from her donning a simple yet sleek silhouette that everybody was talking about for days after.Well, that was then and this is now. Today Pippa Middleton got married and for that very special occasion she didn’t disappoint. Lucky Pippa has a friend by the name of Giles Deacon who just so happens to be a verrry talent designer and whipped together this beautiful ivory lace cap sleeve wedding gown that is EVERYTHING we hoped it would be. Sophisticated, sleek, elegant and classic. The Middleton girls have a penchant for hitting the perfect notes when it comes to classic styling that is timeless.

Intermix Obsession

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

Truth be told I have had a major obsession with the store Intermix for quite sometime. It happened innocently enough. I was asked by their PR firm many years ago to do a write up on their latest store opening in Brentwood, CA.


You can guess that they didn’t have to ask twice and I was on my way to view the newest abode. To my delight the store is filled with a bevy of beautiful items from oodles of different designers all put together in the most imaginative mix. Hence the name Intermix. The store and website go beyond the usual pairing of outfit by one designer and realllly does a great job at mixing numerous labels together to make one look. Just to give you a little heads up that their store and site are worth a look or two or three here is just a sample of the findings. All images courtesy of none other ..Intermix.com
