Stripe Story ……Tips & Tricks for looking Stylish

Posted By: Terri

The 4th of July is next week. If “style” memory serves me correctly- that is THE DAY when most of us choose to wear stripes. This patriotic salute to the stripe pattern is commonly worn in the color combo of red, white and blue. These 3 colors are indicative of honoring July 4th,worn together or perhaps choosing only one of the three colors can be tricky when it comes to wearing any sort of stripe pattern. One wide horizontal stripe worn over the wrong area of your body and you could appear 10 pounds heavier (and that’s before the potato salad)! To ensure that your “stripe story” is on point and ensure that you look your very best I’ve listed a few simple STRIPE style rule(s) to keep in mind:

  1. A thin horizontal stripe is universally appealing on everyone. It flatters the body and makes an area appear smaller.

2. Wide horizontal stripes make an area appear larger.

3. Vertical (up and down) stripes give the illusion of making you appear taller and thinner.

4. Diagonal stripes intersecting at the waist-appear to cinch the area in and define the waist.

5. Combining horizontal and vertical stripes: Note how the vertical stripe pattern elongates the leg, and the horizontal stripe pattern accentuates the bust .

Beautiful Bedrooms

Posted By: Terri

Sunday. What better day to sleep in,lounge around and relax in anticipation of the week ahead. Let’s face it, we all lead some pretty hectic lives and there’s no better room to do some major relaxation aka sleep than your bedroom.

I have always leaned toward a bedroom decorated in the most neutral of colors because quite frankly… it’s a whole lot more “calming” than a space filled with bold colors, wild prints or bright lighting.

Here are a few of my favorite bedrooms spaces that are sure to bring out your inner ommm.

Gloria Vanderbilt Dies at 95

Gloria Vanderbilt died today at the age of 95.

As CNN News Anchor Anderson Cooper (her son and only living heir) announced his beloved Mother’s passing today at the age of 95, he spoke loving of his mother and summed it up so beautifully in saying:

“She was an extraordinary woman who lived an extraordinary life.”

After reviewing picture after glamorous picture of this fashion maven, I couldn’t help but notice a few running themes that I felt personified how she lived her life to be so extraordinary:

  1. Embrace your own sense of Style.
  2. “Keep interested to be interesting.” Gloria Vanderbilt, was one of the wealthiest women on Earth, yet she choose to work on projects until her final days. She was always creating… painting, sketching, designing, decorating and writing.
  3. She was one of the first “Girl Bosses” and inspired and helped other women attain their dreams.
  4. And last but certainly not least (because the woman built the first designer jean empire): ” Jeans are always a good idea- especially if they fit and flatter your figure.

Gloria Vanderbilt with her namesake jeans… They were the “it”item in 1976. The first pair of “designer jeans.” They were comfortable, affordable and figure flattering.

This quote says volumes about her character and integrity.
