Category: Fashion Red Carpet Fashion

Did you get the memo? In case you missed it..here it is- Pink is BIG…(very big) for Spring and that was clearly the case at the Oscars on Sunday. There was allot of Pink in every shade and style and all of it was Pretty with a capital P. Here’s the round up of some of my personal favorites and with Winter winding down a chance to start embracing brighter and bolder colors, I urge you to put a pop of pink into your wardrobe. It will make you feel Pretty- and let’s face it ” we love the pretty. ”

Bring on the Bling

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion tips

Happy Friday, Glamour Girl. There’s been something on my mind lately and it is style related hence- I feel compelled to share it with you. Am I alone on this one or do you agree that we all need a little bit of bling in your day? Lately, I’ve noticed a major gravitational pull toward the perusing of sparkly items. Glitter is always on my radar but as of this week it seems stronger than ever. I can’t quite explain it and yet I sit here pondering the following: could this unceasing penchant for sparkle be caused by: 1) the holidays being O.V.E.R. and longing for something festive 2.) the dark days of Winter with gloomy days abounding are starting to wear on us and we need a bit of sun SHINE in our day or 3.) we just like something sparkly and pretty? How about: All of the above! In keeping with my quest of putting a little bit of bling back in your day and not suggesting you go over the top and look like you’re ready to wear so much glitter that you could bring in an oncoming plane, might I recommend a major “on- trend” item that is spotted everywhere as of late..the rhinestone belt. Now this is NOT the rhinestone cowboy belt of days gone bye but instead a really chic and sleek belt that you can wear with, skirts, pants, everyday dresses and jeans. Yes, you heard me JEANS. In fact,jeans are my number one preference in putting a little bling back into your wardrobe rotation.

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

Think Pink

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

You’re going to be seeing a lot of pink for spring. The trend is already spotted on the Red Carpet starting with last weekends SAG Awards and believe you me it will be popping up in the months ahead.

Pink- comes in a bevy of beautiful hues for Spring 2019- pink, blush, rose, and this year Pantone (the color experts introduce “Sweet Lilac” which I believe is vibrant pink. Whatever you want to call this color and in whatever hue you choose to wear it-pink is so pretty!

So remember, as you’re schlepping through the snow in the cold days of Winter, just think in just a few short months you may literally be “in the pink,.” and everything will be looking a lot more rosy!

Seriously….Sweet Lilac-It’s PINK.

Hat-tas-tic

Today is National Hat Day!

Hat by Balenciaga circa 1954 Photographed by Henry Clark

Hats in their heyday (circa 1950’s & 60’s),were a MAJOR fashion accessory that completed a women’s look and were selected with the greatest of care…

Unlike, hats of today that are tossed atop your head without much thought (and in many cases chosen to cover up a bad hair day or shield one from the harsh elements-(rain, snow, sleet or bright sunlight),the hats of years gone by were statement pieces that were full on glamour .

Oh, I wish that the hats of yesterday would come back. It would give us all a chance to upgrade our look and really make hats..hat-tas-tic once again.

Happy National Hat Day! Here’s to bringing back the hat …in all it’s glamorous glory!.
