Paging….Diana Frey

Paging… Diana Frey. Diana are you there?

Hello Glamour Girls. If you visit this blog on any sort of continuous basis you know I have a major penchant for sharing some pretty things especially when they have a bit of bling. I mean, what would life be without a little (or a lot of SPARKLE). Answer…not nearly as pretty! And Glamour Girl we are ALL about THE PRETTY!

Recently, I shared on my personal Facebook page a photo featuring the most beautiful heart frame boxes designed by mixed media jewelry artist extraordinaire- Diana Frey. Try as I may to “pin” her down to purchase said item(s) listed on Flickr and advertised on Pinterest,, I came to a total standstill. Not to be detoured from my intention to find Ms. Frey, I sourced her via Flickr (where I emailed her to get info) her Etsy shop (which has been down as she is taking “a short break”) and her Facebook page which I cannot seem to locate with numerous listing for Diana Frey, NONE of which seem to be the wonderful artist in demand. In an effort to not be reported as an internet crazy person/stalker …I will wait the recommended 3 day grace period and reach out again via Etsy which still lists an email address. Fingers crossed that maybe just maybe we will make contact.

In the meantime,I’ve posted a sampling of her designs. One look and I think you’ll agree her designs are beautiful and oh so sparkly. If you’re out there Diana Frey we must find you and your jewelry.

Paging…Diana Frey.

If you’re looking for a really good reason to get out of town and want some major fashion pablum to boot I suggest you book your next flight for… London. (Trust me on this one. I promise, you won’t be disappointed.

London’s Victoria & Albert Museum (V&A) is presenting one of the most spectacular fashion exhibits ever. Not since Alexander McQueens “Savage Beauty” exhibit has there been this amount of excitement for a collection at V &A. Their latest offering on display is titled “ Christian Dior “Designer of Dreams.” It’s a breathtaking view of the brands stylish history from it’s inception in 1947 to present day . This exhibit is on display and open to the public from February 2 to July 14, 2019 and features over 500 pieces (including 200 couture gowns)!

A must see sensation. Between you and I,they had me at Dior! For more information about this exhibit check out the complete 411 at Harper’s Bazzar.com


The pièce de résistance of the captivating collection is a gown Princess Margaret, sister of Queen Elizabeth II, sported on her 21st birthday. According to The Standard, the dress is on loan to the V&A by the Museum of London

They say that the 90’s are back.

When it comes to Chanel, I wonder if they ever left…

Chanel is  a classic.  This 1991 Chanel Jacket  worn by Supermodel Naomi Campbell looks like she is walking the Runway today.

Proof that Chanel is truly Timeless.

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.

A Penchant for Boston Proper

Posted By: Terri
Category: Designer Spotlight

I’ve been an avid shopper of the online site Boston Proper for more years than I can even recall. It’s one of my “go to sites” where  I can find affordable and fabulous fashion that is well made and designer inspired. If you need some verification besides my own to this statement testimonial, might I share  a little tidbit about my dear friend Penelope ( a major shopper and devotee of all thing HIGH fashion-think Chanel, Prada, Gucci-her closet is a Who’s Who of the best brands in luxury fashion). Any who, years ago I wrote  a post about Boston Proper (BP) and being the good friend that she is- Penelope read the post and then proceeded to check out BP for herself. Fast forward a few weeks after Penelope read the post and I get a phone call: It went something like this: “Terri, I don’t know if I should thank you or scold you because I have been shopping BP like crazy. I love everything they carry. Seriously…… this is getting out of control!”  She was so happy with the quality and the price points that to this day Penelope continues to shop BP on a verrry regular basis. Quite a testimonial from a friend known to exclusively shop Designer (and I don’t mean discount). To get your Summer wardrobe off to a fresh start I thought it might be nice to share my favorite item on the site and encourage you to clickity click over to BP and see for yourself that Summer just got a whole lot more fashionable and affordable. Enjoy! P.S. Penelope and I are still the dearest of friends.

Swarovski Anniversary Sparkle

Mosaic Neckpiece by Jason Wu for Swarovski Atelier

Swarovski is celebrating their 10 year Anniversary and to add some serious design mojo to the occasion they have selected Jason Wu to create an exclusive Atelier Swarovski line. The collection entitled “Mosaic” consists of 7 items (2 necklaces,2 pairs of earrings, 1 ring, 1 bangle and 1 small sized clutch). The number of items presented  seems to be fitting for the occasion since 7 IS a lucky number.  All the items are beauuutiful (trust me on this one-the site  web page  does NOT do it justice) and all items are  priced a “tad” higher than their usual line (Tad translation-prices are MUCH higher  than the usual Swarovski offerings).

Price points start at $249.99 for the ring and top out at (wait for it) $2, 990.00 for the necklace featured above. Bear in mind this collection is designed by THE Jason Wu! (who burst onto the fashion spotlight when he designed the Inauguration Gowns (yes that is plural) for Michelle Obama and continues to dazzle the fashion world with his creations today.
