Suiting UP

Suits for women have come a long way from the very basic (and maybe a little boring) navy or black, single breasted, 2 button down jacket with matching A- line skirt and a pair of pants. . Thank goodness! Suits for Spring 2019 seem to have a bit more edge and style and are much more flattering.

If you happen to be looking for a few quick and easy tips to UP your “Spring Suit Style” here are a few that should do the trick:

  • First and foremost FIT is key! Your suit should fit you to perfection. You can take a moderately priced suit and have it appear to be Couture with the right tailor.
  • If you’re opting for a color PINK IS BIG this season. Very Big. I’m featuring a soft pink from Veronica Beard in today’s blog but you can find suits in a wide array of colors and styles.

  • Heels. Yes, I said it heels. Please “elevate” your style and add a heel instead of flats. You don’t have to teeter on 5 inch stilettos but please promise me you’ll at least try. Heels give you a polished put together look and you’ll appear taller and thinner. (Your basic win-win)!
  • Accessories are the perfect finishing touch. Add a great handbag in addition to opting in and adding earrings/ a sleek statement necklace/ bracelet or ring. You don’t have to do all 4 jewelry options-but add one great piece and it will pull your whole look together and amp up your style another notch or 3!

“Slide” into Spring

ShopMystic.com

Are you ready to “slide” into Spring? I thought so!

In my quest to search out the most glamour worthy items on the web, I came across this amazing site that has so much sparkle that I may possibly be on BLING overload.

Like all things that you discover purely by chance, I was beyond delighted to find Mystic.com. Originally started in 1999 by Yamin Levy and his wife Dorien, who began their company by designing and offering three styles of beautifully handcrafted and embellished sandals inspired by the MYSTICAL island of Bali.. As luck (and hard work) would have it, the 3 styles sold out immediately and here we are 20 years later with the company still growing and now offering over 200 styles. All items are handmade and made to order by this talented family of artisans in Bali. Price points range from $80-$250.00, and customer reviews are “glowing…”

Sooo if you’re looking for a little (or a lot) of sparkle to help you “slide into Spring” check out Mystic.com and join me in a little Bling overload. Which P.S. is never a bad thing!

The Shirt Dress Returns

Brandon Maxwell Spring 2019 Collection Vogue.com

The shirt dress is back in a BIG way for Spring 2019. My question is-did it ever leave?

The shirt dress was a woman’s everyday uniform back in the 1950’s. Women needed an outfit that was easy to move around in and maintain a sense of style.-The original design was fitted on top with a very full skirt cinched with a belt at the waist. I remember my Mother wearing a shirt dress in a pretty color everyday growing up. It was always crisp,clean and cinched her waist with a thin matching belt and had a slightly gathered full skirt that hit just above her knees. My Mother did all her daily chores wearing a shirt dress and now that I think of it, she never looked anything but perfectly pulled together. How did she do that?!

Today’s shirt dress has so many variations to choose from but the one constant is that no matter what shape, color or print the overall design is flattering and feminine. The shirt dress is back ! ( And most likely..here to stay).

Make’n “Pretty”

Posted By: Terri
Category: Glamorous Decor

I’m all about the PRETTY!

Growing up in a home where everything and I do mean everything was organized, alphabetized and colorized- it really came as no surprise that I have a penchant for order…. and if I can make order look PRETTY than all the better.

It all began a few years ago. A friend asked if I could come over and help her restyle her new closet space. Seriously????I would have done it for free as her closet was filled with enough designer Chanel that she could have opened her own boutique.Bearing in mind that I knew I had to charge something because we all know that at the end of the day a girl has got to make bank so she can pay her bills and buy her very own Chanel..and so it began my closet organizing and styling business. I I LOVE every minute working with a client, bringing order to a space and restyling looks to make them feel better about themselves and increase their confidence in their everyday life.

Lately, I’ve come out of the closet as clients are asking for other parts of their home to be styled and organized. Here’s a small sampling of what I’ve been up to and there is more..much more to come. I’ve been restyling everything from kitchens to bookshelves, bathroom, bedrooms and garages. At the end of the day Organizing is all about THE PRETTY!
