Lovely Lace

Posted By: Terri
Category: Designer Spotlight

Once upon a time lace was only reserved for wedding wear aka bridal gowns. But that was long ago and today is a whole different story. Lovely  lace and ruffles in particular have made a major comeback this summer and the look can be frilly, feminine and modern. The thrill of the frill can be purchased at all price points and if you have a stash of cash might I suggest perusing the collection from Zimmerman.com or if you don’t want to break the bank I have a few suggestions…just scroll down and click the pic to be sent to the source. Enjoy!

Fun Flats for Summer

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

I cannot believe it’s already May! Last I looked it was April 15…because let’s face it THAT”‘S  a day we ALWAYS remember. Which got me to thinking that Summer is going to be here in about a nanosecond and you and I are going to go FLAT…as in-push those stilettos aside because more than likely we will be sporting some seriously fun flats to run errands, walk on the beach, bike ride etc..etc..etc. You get the picture. It’s that time of year that we lower our heels and stay low to the ground for optimal comfort.  If you’re longing for some seriously fun flats that won’t break the bank and at the same time bring some Summer style to the beach here are a few pairs from this new site (well at least to me) from Make Me Chic Originals.

Met Gala 2017..in review

Posted By: Terri
Category: Red Carpet Fashion

It’s Herrrre! The  annual Met Gala is in full swing tonight and if you’re looking for a little 411 on the event before we get down to the nitty gritty aka fashion here’s the brief bio……

The Met Gala, formally called the Costume Institute Gala and also known as the Met Ball, is an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. It marks the grand opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit. Each year’s event celebrates the theme of that year’s Costume Institute exhibition, and the exhibition sets the tone for the formal dress of the night, since guests are expected to choose their fashion to match the theme of the exhibit. Each year the event also has honorary celebrity event day chairpersons

This year the exhibition is “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between,” and the hosts are Anna Wintour (the gatekeeper for the gala), Tom Brady, Gisele Bündchen, Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams; the honorary chairwomen are Ms. Kawakubo and Caroline Kennedy, the former United States ambassador to Japan

Now that I’ve got you up to speed I KNOW you just want to know who wore what. Bearing in mind that I can’t feature everyone…here are a few of the stand outs and might I just say that once again Rihana has a “subtle way” of expressing herself. The girl is fearless.

Delightful Denim Pumps @DSW

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion
Mix No 6 Pavia Pump $39.95

Mix No 6 Pavia Pump $39.95

Soooo this happened. I walked into DSW after my morning workout because as luck would have it-said gym is  smack dab in the middle of Hollywood and a retail mecca. I thought I’d quickly take a moment for some retail inspiration… more specifically shoes at DSW. If you’ve ever been in a DSW – you know firsthand that they are nothing short of a Disneyland of shoes lined up in neat rows that wind you around a mega store filled with every type of footwear usually priced at a discount from those in department stores. It’s nothing short of a shoe trifecta with an amazing selection of styles, all within easy reach to try on and on sale! You won’t find high end designers-Manolos and Louboutins but “relative facsimiles” for anyone who can’t afford shoes that are the price of rent (not that there’s anything wrong with that if you can afford it)-I’m just here to give you options.  So back to my perusing DSW-there in row two as I was winding around the corner were the most eye catching pair of denim pumps with embroidery.

Jessica Simpson Lannah Pump

As I tried them on they were sooo comfortable and would pair perfectly with a bevy of summer ensembles. Priced at $69.95 with 20% off -HELLO steal of a deal. If you prefer some denim sans simple (aka no embroidery) check out these additional styles:
