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.

All the better..if it’s Vegan Leather!

Posted By: Terri

Anouki High Waisted Vegan Skirt @Moda Operandi.com ($490.00)

I’m a huge fan of  Vegan leather and today I thought I’d share a little insight as to why you might want to go faux in addition to some stylish selections that I hope will inspire.

  • First and foremost,I’m a major animal advocate and  when we can go faux -then all the better

(Fun style story). After purchasing my first Vegan moto jacket, I got so many compliments  on my beautiful  “leather”   jacket  in addition to some inquiries about the cost  which they assumed – had to be in the triple digits….everyone and I do mean everyone thought it was the real deal.

  • Second on my list.Never and I do mean never underestimate the look of a good vegan counterpart -it can fool even the most advanced style savant.

Jonathan Simkhai Vegan Leather Twist Skirt @ Shopbop.com $475.00

  • Finally, is the cost (savings) of going vegan.You will save a bundle for a look made of vegan leather in comparison to real leather.

Alexis Briana Vegan Leather Skirt @Shopbop ,com $363.00 (on sale $254.10)

  • Sooooo-if you’re look for an environmental way to help save our precious animals, while at the same time save money but still look lux when it comes to wearing a faux..vegan leather is the way to go!

Nanushka Vegan Leather Wrap @ Moda Operandi.com ($360.00)

As you can see I have found a wide selection of fabulous vegan skirts with links back to the retailer in addition to some bonus style selections below….. Enjoy !

NY&C Black Faux Leather Skirt $79.95

BBDakota Vegan Leather Jacket @ Shopbop .com $98.00

Vegan Leather Dress Rebecca Taylor @ Shopbop $450.00

Rebecca Taylor Vegan Leather Top @ Shopbop $375.00

Monochromatic Monday

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion tips

Today I want to share one of my absolute favorite styling secrets to looking taller, slimmer and chic. It’s called monochromatic dressing.  I’ve  know I’ve blogged about this on more than one occasion,mainly  due to the fact that it’s one of my favorite ways to dress, in addition to styling my clients in head to toe shades of the same color to help them look and feel fabulous!

If per chance you think this look could hedge on borrrring or perhaps consider that you have to make every item matchy-matchy-(translation-that they have to be the exact same shade for the monochromatic look to work) that would be inccorrect. Monochromatic dressing is  anything but boring and you can mix textures within the same color to have a look that appears chic, expensive and well thought out.

Here’s a little style inspo to get you into a monochromatic Monday sort of mood!

Enjoy!

Tuesday’s Tip…

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion tips

 

It’s the start of a brand New Year and you know what that means…time to revisit your closet and do a little detox aka closet organizing and yearly clean out!

First, start by going into your closet and reviewing each and every item. Yes,  you are reading that right- I said  I want you to review each and EVERY item.  Here’s a list of quick questions to ask yourself  if you’re on the fence of  whether to keep, toss or donate:

If  any item doesn’t make you feel you’re  BESTditch it ! Same goes for items that are beyond repair,don’t quite fit, or are a bit dated.  I know it’s tough love but you’ll thank me the next time you look into your closet and  every item in there makes you more confident and beautiful. Closet space comes at a premium, and by getting rid of the old,unused or unflattering styles, it allows for the new & improved item(s) to enter  your wardrobe rotation.

Lastly, in order to optimize your closet space to the absolute maximum, all you need do is hang all items back using the same type of hanger. Uniformity is key when you’re looking for extra space, and BONUS…it makes your whole closet look so much more organized.

Zober Premium Velvet Skirt Hangers (Amazon.com $23.99 box 20)

Zober Wood Hangers ( Amazon.com $22.90 pack of 20)
