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.

http://www.gotoglamourgirl.com/2012/03/23/intermix-opens-in-brentwood/.

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

Lovely Lace

Posted By: Terri
Category: Designer Spotlight

Once upon a time lace was only reserved for wedding wear aka bridal gowns. But that was long ago and today is a whole different story. Lovely  lace and ruffles in particular have made a major comeback this summer and the look can be frilly, feminine and modern. The thrill of the frill can be purchased at all price points and if you have a stash of cash might I suggest perusing the collection from Zimmerman.com or if you don’t want to break the bank I have a few suggestions…just scroll down and click the pic to be sent to the source. Enjoy!

Fun Flats for Summer

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

I cannot believe it’s already May! Last I looked it was April 15…because let’s face it THAT”‘S  a day we ALWAYS remember. Which got me to thinking that Summer is going to be here in about a nanosecond and you and I are going to go FLAT…as in-push those stilettos aside because more than likely we will be sporting some seriously fun flats to run errands, walk on the beach, bike ride etc..etc..etc. You get the picture. It’s that time of year that we lower our heels and stay low to the ground for optimal comfort.  If you’re longing for some seriously fun flats that won’t break the bank and at the same time bring some Summer style to the beach here are a few pairs from this new site (well at least to me) from Make Me Chic Originals.

Delightful Denim Pumps @DSW

Mix No 6 Pavia Pump $39.95

Mix No 6 Pavia Pump $39.95

Soooo this happened. I walked into DSW after my morning workout because as luck would have it-said gym is  smack dab in the middle of Hollywood and a retail mecca. I thought I’d quickly take a moment for some retail inspiration… more specifically shoes at DSW. If you’ve ever been in a DSW – you know firsthand that they are nothing short of a Disneyland of shoes lined up in neat rows that wind you around a mega store filled with every type of footwear usually priced at a discount from those in department stores. It’s nothing short of a shoe trifecta with an amazing selection of styles, all within easy reach to try on and on sale! You won’t find high end designers-Manolos and Louboutins but “relative facsimiles” for anyone who can’t afford shoes that are the price of rent (not that there’s anything wrong with that if you can afford it)-I’m just here to give you options.  So back to my perusing DSW-there in row two as I was winding around the corner were the most eye catching pair of denim pumps with embroidery.

Jessica Simpson Lannah Pump

As I tried them on they were sooo comfortable and would pair perfectly with a bevy of summer ensembles. Priced at $69.95 with 20% off -HELLO steal of a deal. If you prefer some denim sans simple (aka no embroidery) check out these additional styles:

Beautiful Bell Sleeves

I am lovvvvving the big bell sleeve detail that has gone from Winter 2016 to Spring 2017. There is just something so pretty and feminine about a bell detail (no matter how large or small)  that adds a touch of style to any sleeve. Now it may not be the number one item to wear if your thinking of doing dishes or chores of any kind unless of course it’s shopping and really now is that a chore?I think not.  But to add some extra uuumph to an outfit and put some serious style into  the ever so predictable straight sleeve why not try a beautiful bell detail this Spring.
