Going Glove-ly…..

Posted By: Terri

Marsala Women’s Glove @ Gloves 1861 on Etsy

The Coronavirus, has  made living life a bit Topsy- turvy . (Topsy-turvy meaning- utter confusion & disorder). People are staying in-(I think the news calls it self quarantine), they’re also stockpiling  food and household supplies and  many have retreated from any social engagement whatsoever.

I personally don’t know what to think of it all except  that we  must be more mindful in how we are living our lives.  Don’t touch your face, eat healthy, exercise and  most of all-WIPE DOWN AND DISINFECT EVERYTHING would be the short list of things to embrace immediately!

Tomorrow I must travel via airplane and I’m prepared with enough disinfectant wipes to clean my entire house. That being said, I  am adding a stylish addition to my arsenal of germ fighting -I’m going glove-ly.  Not surgical gloves BUT stylish animal print velvet gloves. Yep-I’m wearing them 24/7 and will only take them off if I am washing my hands.

I have always been a fan of the glove and looking on the bright side -there’s no better time to get gloves back into  your style rotation.(I have often wondered why gloves ever went out of style in the first place)? Gloves  keep your hands germ free  and they’re also a perfect sunscreen not to mention a stylish addition to any outfit.

I hope that today and everyday you enjoy nothing less than perfect health. If you need to amp up your routine when it comes to warding off the flu or circulating virus..consider going Glove-ly!Be well . xoT

Trend Alert..Bigger is Back @ Chanel

Posted By: Terri
Category: Designer Spotlight

Is it me or are the 90’s making a comeback when it comes to jewelry trends for Spring and Fall 2020?

Wayyyy back then… (in the 1990’s), jewelry was big and bold and definitely made a statement. Take a sneak peak at the Chanel Spring & Fall 2020 Collections  and you may notice that the jewelry featured looks verrrry similar to pieces inspired by the 1990’s. It’s bold and seriously  statement worthy.

Which leaves me to wonder..will shoulder pads be next. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

All the better..if it’s Vegan Leather!

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

Anouki High Waisted Vegan Skirt @Moda Operandi.com ($490.00)

I’m a huge fan of  Vegan leather and today I thought I’d share a little insight as to why you might want to go faux in addition to some stylish selections that I hope will inspire.

  • First and foremost,I’m a major animal advocate and  when we can go faux -then all the better

(Fun style story). After purchasing my first Vegan moto jacket, I got so many compliments  on my beautiful  “leather”   jacket  in addition to some inquiries about the cost  which they assumed – had to be in the triple digits….everyone and I do mean everyone thought it was the real deal.

  • Second on my list.Never and I do mean never underestimate the look of a good vegan counterpart -it can fool even the most advanced style savant.

Jonathan Simkhai Vegan Leather Twist Skirt @ Shopbop.com $475.00

  • Finally, is the cost (savings) of going vegan.You will save a bundle for a look made of vegan leather in comparison to real leather.

Alexis Briana Vegan Leather Skirt @Shopbop ,com $363.00 (on sale $254.10)

  • Sooooo-if you’re look for an environmental way to help save our precious animals, while at the same time save money but still look lux when it comes to wearing a faux..vegan leather is the way to go!

Nanushka Vegan Leather Wrap @ Moda Operandi.com ($360.00)

As you can see I have found a wide selection of fabulous vegan skirts with links back to the retailer in addition to some bonus style selections below….. Enjoy !

NY&C Black Faux Leather Skirt $79.95

BBDakota Vegan Leather Jacket @ Shopbop .com $98.00

Vegan Leather Dress Rebecca Taylor @ Shopbop $450.00

Rebecca Taylor Vegan Leather Top @ Shopbop $375.00
