Christian Dior Ad 1957

 

It’s time to…. Go Back to Gloves!  Gloves  are one of the best ways NOT  to spread germs. (and let’s just be frank -that fun fact is a MAJOR priority right now.

I often wonder…Why did we ever stop wearing these stylish hand covers in the first place?

Gloves protect one  from spreading germs  not to mention that they’re uber stylish and absolutely compliment a look. It’s the perfect accessory because it fashionable and functional!

For your enjoyment and inspiration I’ve offered a bit of a throwback to gloves today in addition to providing you with some updated selections for the season.

Have a glove-ly day. Stay safe and be well. xoxoT

Going Glove-ly…..

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

Marsala Women’s Glove @ Gloves 1861 on Etsy

The Coronavirus, has  made living life a bit Topsy- turvy . (Topsy-turvy meaning- utter confusion & disorder). People are staying in-(I think the news calls it self quarantine), they’re also stockpiling  food and household supplies and  many have retreated from any social engagement whatsoever.

I personally don’t know what to think of it all except  that we  must be more mindful in how we are living our lives.  Don’t touch your face, eat healthy, exercise and  most of all-WIPE DOWN AND DISINFECT EVERYTHING would be the short list of things to embrace immediately!

Tomorrow I must travel via airplane and I’m prepared with enough disinfectant wipes to clean my entire house. That being said, I  am adding a stylish addition to my arsenal of germ fighting -I’m going glove-ly.  Not surgical gloves BUT stylish animal print velvet gloves. Yep-I’m wearing them 24/7 and will only take them off if I am washing my hands.

I have always been a fan of the glove and looking on the bright side -there’s no better time to get gloves back into  your style rotation.(I have often wondered why gloves ever went out of style in the first place)? Gloves  keep your hands germ free  and they’re also a perfect sunscreen not to mention a stylish addition to any outfit.

I hope that today and everyday you enjoy nothing less than perfect health. If you need to amp up your routine when it comes to warding off the flu or circulating virus..consider going Glove-ly!Be well . xoT

Trend Alert..Bigger is Back @ Chanel

Posted By: Terri
Category: Designer Spotlight

Is it me or are the 90’s making a comeback when it comes to jewelry trends for Spring and Fall 2020?

Wayyyy back then… (in the 1990’s), jewelry was big and bold and definitely made a statement. Take a sneak peak at the Chanel Spring & Fall 2020 Collections  and you may notice that the jewelry featured looks verrrry similar to pieces inspired by the 1990’s. It’s bold and seriously  statement worthy.

Which leaves me to wonder..will shoulder pads be next. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
