Saturday Shade

Category: Fashion

Summer Sun calls for 2 things..sunscreen and shade. If you’re looking to enjoy the great outdoors but don’t want your face to become one giant sunspot ,might I suggest throwing some MAJOR shade and sporting one fabulous OVERSIZED hat.

After reviewing numerous sites- where you can find a bevy of beautiful options, I came upon one fabulous find via ASOS. For a mere $45.00 you can oversize but not overspend and throw caution to the wind as you bask outdoors in the Saturday Sunlight. How’s that for throwing some shade?! Happy Saturday. Have a great weekend.

FABULOUS FIND VIA ASOS..Click on image and go directly to site

My Pick….The Oversized turn back brim straw hat @ ASOS $45.00

Sale Shopping 101

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion tips

Christmas in July is officially a thing. A very big thing! In the past 5 days we have had two MAJOR sales open to it’s “Members Only.”

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access July 12-18

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has Early Access entry for it’s cardholders and an assorted number of selected influencers / fashion bloggers that promote Nordstrom with their list of “favorite items from the sale posted on their blogs and you tube channels.

Then there’s “Prime Day” on Amazon. Originally designed as a “holiday” to celebrate the birthday of Amazon, Prime Day has morphed into a 2 day extravaganza . This year the sale boosts over a million deals to their Prime “Members Only.”

All this sale shopping with limited access and a set amount of sale days to shop, bring about a “buying frenzy” where people can be glued to their devices sourcing and stressing to find the best deals possible.

If you’re looking to shop any sale and not feel deluged by the wide assortment of offerings available, I would like to suggest a little Sale Shopping 101.

Here’s a short list of things to consider in shopping and sorting through any sale to find the best deals for you.

  1. Make a list of things that you actually need. As we all know,needs are far different than wants. You “need” an item when it is essential or important to your way of living.
  2. Break down your list into categories: Technology, Home, Fashion, Garden….this will allow you to shop more quickly and efficiently.
  3. Compare BRAND item pricing on other websites to ensure you’re getting the best deal.
  4. Set a budget for what you can afford to spend on each item.
  5. Before the sale opens, put items that you are considering in your cart. This will allow you to edit down your selections and check out before the items are sold out in record time and keep you focused on what you really want to purchase.

Go with the Flow(ing) Top

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion Uncategorized

There seems to be a lovely flow as of late, when it comes to Summer tops. I’ve noticed a plethora of long flowing tops over a tailored or cropped pant. The look is so chic and might I add slimming when mindful of 2 simple style rules.

1.No matter how long or flowing the top, pair it with a tapered or form fitting pant.

2. Wear heels to elevate any and every look. Heel height need not be sky high- a simple 2 inch heel or wedge can work wonders.

Follow these two simple rules and you will look long, lean and oh so tres’ chic.
