Sale Shopping 101

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion tips

Christmas in July is officially a thing. A very big thing! In the past 5 days we have had two MAJOR sales open to it’s “Members Only.”

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access July 12-18

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has Early Access entry for it’s cardholders and an assorted number of selected influencers / fashion bloggers that promote Nordstrom with their list of “favorite items from the sale posted on their blogs and you tube channels.

Then there’s “Prime Day” on Amazon. Originally designed as a “holiday” to celebrate the birthday of Amazon, Prime Day has morphed into a 2 day extravaganza . This year the sale boosts over a million deals to their Prime “Members Only.”

All this sale shopping with limited access and a set amount of sale days to shop, bring about a “buying frenzy” where people can be glued to their devices sourcing and stressing to find the best deals possible.

If you’re looking to shop any sale and not feel deluged by the wide assortment of offerings available, I would like to suggest a little Sale Shopping 101.

Here’s a short list of things to consider in shopping and sorting through any sale to find the best deals for you.

  1. Make a list of things that you actually need. As we all know,needs are far different than wants. You “need” an item when it is essential or important to your way of living.
  2. Break down your list into categories: Technology, Home, Fashion, Garden….this will allow you to shop more quickly and efficiently.
  3. Compare BRAND item pricing on other websites to ensure you’re getting the best deal.
  4. Set a budget for what you can afford to spend on each item.
  5. Before the sale opens, put items that you are considering in your cart. This will allow you to edit down your selections and check out before the items are sold out in record time and keep you focused on what you really want to purchase.

Go with the Flow(ing) Top

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion Uncategorized

There seems to be a lovely flow as of late, when it comes to Summer tops. I’ve noticed a plethora of long flowing tops over a tailored or cropped pant. The look is so chic and might I add slimming when mindful of 2 simple style rules.

1.No matter how long or flowing the top, pair it with a tapered or form fitting pant.

2. Wear heels to elevate any and every look. Heel height need not be sky high- a simple 2 inch heel or wedge can work wonders.

Follow these two simple rules and you will look long, lean and oh so tres’ chic.

Summer Beach Bag $18.04 JavaSpirit on Etsy

I love a straw handbag for Summer. They tend to be so lightweight and breezy and perfect for the warmer days ahead.

While I ‘m usually a major proponent of investing in a high quality handbag for your daily wardrobe, I think that we can loosen our standards when it comes to anything made of straw -especially if the straw handbag in consideration is really more for decoration and completing that Summer outfit.

Here are 4… fun, breezy and oh-so -affordable options to consider all under $50.00. Enjoy!

Here’s the thing about blogging,…You sit in front of your computer, perfectly poised to write a story and inspire your wonderful readers on the topic of white dresses for Summer. Just as you’re posting the first white dress that you are lovvving on-this happens. You find that the white dress is made by a label you are not familiar with. Now this is a major conundrum, since I am pretty much sourcing fashion 24/7 and thought I knew just about every designer out there or at the very least heard of them in passing on Pinterest,Vogue or Instagram. Imagine my surprise, when I come across this beautiful white confection and the image source listed is Designer Alex Perry. I ponder for a nano second: “Who is Alex Perry?” Come to find out (faster than you can Google his name at warp speed), Alex Perry is an Australian Fashion Designer with some pretty fabulous style. He designs dresses That’s it… dresses. Beautiful sleek,stylish dresses that are gorgeous and tailored to perfection.

Here’s a sweet sampling of his designs.

Meet Sebastian Grey

Posted By: Terri
Category: Designer Spotlight
Project Runway Season 17 WINNER-South Florida Designer Sebastian Grey

Sebastian Grey-remember that name. Sebastian just won Season 17 of Project Runway and I have a feeling his path will mirror that of a previous winner named Christian Siriano. Christian has gone on to great success in Fashion and I have no doubt that Sebastian will follow a similar path.

Originally from Columbia, Sebastian came to America to pursue the American Dream. He had a vision to be a designer and make beautiful clothes Until winning Project Runway Season 17, Sebastian made a living cleaning homes and designing in his spare time. Clearly gifted and unbelievably creative with a vision, hard work and design skills that hedge on being “couture worthy” his days of cleaning houses have ended. Winning Project Runway not only allows him the freedom to finally have the money to design and market his own line of clothing but establish his brand in the industry. I have a feeling we’ll all be clamoring to wear his creations in the very near future.

A sampling of some of Sebastian’s previous designs on Project Runway.
