Happy Sunday! .

As July comes to a close, temps continue to soar and the Sun is shining down with some pretty powerful rays.  I hope today’s blog post  will serve as a gentle reminder to take cover with a dose of sunscreen in the double digit rage  (30 and up SPF) in addition to sporting a sensational Summer sunhat.

Here’s a trip down memory lane with some Vintage hats that I hope will inspire. Enjoy and take cover!

The” White” Commandments for Summer Pants…

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion tips

Just about every Glamour Girl  I know embraces the well known fact that wearing basic black can make you “appear” slimmer and taller-hence the reason why we have oodles of black in our closets.

But it’s SUMMER (double Yah!) and it’s time to starting wearing all that wonderful white that’s been pushed to the back of your closet for waaaaaay to long-and I’m specifically talking about your basic white pant because not for noth’in they go with EVERYTHING! That’s the good news. The not so good news is that white pants can make you appear heavier IF you don’t abide by a few simple tried and true style rules: P.S. or as I refer to them as ….

The White Commandments:

  • Thou shalt wear white pants that are made in a fabrication that gives ample coverage: translation-if you can see through your white pants and notice any panty lines, pocket lines and/or bikini lines… get in line and buy a new pair that you can’t see thru.
  • Thou shalt wear only white pants that FIT Properly! Fit is KEY. Make sure your white pants fit you PERFECTLY. There should be no signs of pulling/stretching (aka thigh lines going horizontally) or gaping. Both issues only accentuate one’s figure flaws and I don’t think THAT’s the look that anyone is going for. Bear in mind that nobody and I do mean No BODY has a perfect figure so don’t be hard on yourself. Get a pair of white pants/jeans that fit you in the hips and thighs and if need be have the waist tailored to fit.
  • Thou Shalt keep our whites a bright white through proper care & cleaning. White can go from chic to shabby in a matter of seconds if you have a spot, splatter or sweat stains on your garment or if per chance your white has taken on a yellow tinge (from being in your closet past it’s expiration date .(This usually happens with age or dry cleaning any item one too many times). Proper cleaning and maintenance is key when keeping your whites. a beautiful bright WHITE!

Let’s get a JUMP(suit) on the weekend.

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion Fashion tips

Helloooo Weekend. It’s been  quite a week and I apologize for being MIA…but we’re back and happy to share this post on jumpsuits for Spring and Summer. Below is a sampling of a few of my favorite styles that look good on just about everyone.

Jumpsuits are super comfy and CAN be so flattering!

Here are a few tips to make sure you look your best no matter what style you choose to wear:

  1. Fit is absolute key.
  2. Check pant length in the event you want to pair with heels. Best to go a little longer and roll the hem up when you wear with sneakers or flats. Options are important!
  3. Most denim jumpsuits ae 100% cotton. If you’re going to machine wash -I highly recommend washing alone in a delicate cycle on cold to insure that the color stays vibrant and the jumpsuit doesn’t shrink in size.
  4. Sleeves, no sleeves? I recommend a 3/4 to long sleeve-you can always roll the sleeves up on warmer days.
  5. A cinched in waist will also make you look like you have an hourglass figure.
  6. Dark denim will always make you appear thinner.

Hello First Day of Spring & Scarf Styling….

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion tips

Hello Spring…We thought you’d never get here! When you live in a colder climate, the first day of Spring is not only something you long for but something that doesn’t seem to come fast enough as the Winter months seem to linger on and on and on.

One this first day of Spring it is OFFICAL (as far as the calendar is concerned), and although  the weather temperature outside hasn’t got the memo from the calendar that it is actually SPRING it allows us to anticipate that YES in fact  the onset of warmer, sunnier and longer hours of daylight are ahead! Triple YAY!

Just to get you in the mood for Spring and inspire you that brighter days along with a mroe vibrant color palette are ahead…I thought you might enjoy a selection of brightly colored outfits (inspired by the tulip colors above) with some major scarf styling.

Drape it over your Coat for a SPLASH of color!

Scarves. Yes, you heard me, the scarf never goes out of style and gives you a plethora of way to wear it!

A bold pop of color when draped Over one shoulder…..

Drape softly around your neck

Drape and cinch it  in with a belt at the waist…

Going Green…Happy St. Patrick’s Day.

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  It goes without saying that today is the day that many people will dive into their closets and source some shade of green to wear in celebration of the holiday. Even if you’re not one little bit of Irish-you’ll most likely join the party and put on something in this pretty hue. I have sourced two outfits that I hope will inspire you to go green with a POP of pink.
