Just in Time

meHello – Happy Belated Holidays – Happy New Year!
Have you ever gone through a phase in your life where the days just pass you by and you focus on important things and everything else just turns into a big ‘ol blurrrr? To join my whirlwind, you would have to know the following (you get sucked into the whirlwind even faster if you read this at lightning speed): I started working full-time as a Lighting Specifier for a Rep Agency and started as a Stylist for Stella & Dot, Hurricane Sandy came, my incredible Grandfather sadly passed away, Thanksgiving feast, I also lost my dear Uncle, my 24th Birthday, moved into my first apartment, flew to Georgia for training the following day, Christmas, received my first little blue boxes, skied in the Poconos (cried pretty much the whole time), New Year’s Eve, kiss had not one but 2 flat tires, and now it is the 15th of January.
Now that we are all on the same page, I am here to lighten things up! I had another insane day, but it is Trendy Tuesday none the less! You are all “just in time” to celebrate with some stella & dot eye candy!

Stella & Dot Launch

This is the post you all have been waiting for…  It is Trendy Tuesday and I am finally posting images from my first ever Qualified Trunk Show as a Stylist with Stella & Dot! You want arm candy – we’ve got it! You need that statement necklace to wow friends at your holiday party – we’ve got it! You want to have a cocktail and get styled in the latest jewelry and accessories – we’ve got it!

I was so excited to have the theme be “Jewels and Ghouls”! I wanted to make a simple , yet spooky tatement against the jewelry. I bought paper mache skulls and skull masks and sprayed them gold. I layered the skulls in a tall apothacary jar. As for the skull masks, I wired them to a cluster of branches and added twinkle lights. I also utilized gold for the trays that I put some of the bite-sized foods on. I baked mini red velvet cupcakes and iced them with cream cheese frosting. Carefully, I used a skewer to push the frosting out of the way and poked 2 holes to create VAMPIRE BITES!

Here is the first set up of jewelry with little black, sparkly spiders mixed in! Everyone loved the statement necklaces in the vibrant coral and turquoise colors. A big hit was the Alexandria Necklace which has scalloped metal pieces all layerd in it – I sold 2 of those! This table was a hit and my guests had a blast trying the jewelry on!

This was the other table with wonderful earrings and candy! The leopard print scarf and Deco Stackable rings were super popular. Trend Alert – Animal prints and deco-inspired vintage jewelry is very in right now! Mix and Match patterns and you are good to go!

To Jewelry. Period. ❤

TRENDY TUESDAY- say what?!

Hello all! I know today is not Tuesday, but we are taking the time machine back to that glorious day (I am sure you were really wishing you could relive it)! The days until my Stella & Dot Launch party are disappearing faster than a creamcheese frosted cupcake in muh general sightline… I think I have everything just about planned – plus, I can’t stop admiring my jewelry and I am sure my friends will feel the same way at the party. Layering jewelry and loading on the rings is very trendy right now. These Deco Stackable rings in Silver are fantastic to acheive a simple, sparkly, and sophistaced look. My favorite vintage style of jewelry is definitely Deco and it has made a huge comback in recent years. Art Deco uses very classic lines so adding pieces into your daily wardrobe is a must!

Seeing Red

I was all over God’s creation and apologize for not blogging on Thursday. So, are you “reddy” for this week’s dose of Interior Design Therapy?!

First stop in our Red inspired design post is the Revel Casino. This is the tallest casino in America. The caliber of design and entertainment is enough to make you jaw drop! I was definitely walking around in awe the whole time. If the red isn’t eye-catching enough for ya – take a look at that illuminated soffet! The light installation is so fantastic – I could talk about it for days!

Next, I headed into Philadelphia for the IIDA Product Parade with my new coworkers. I saw old faces and many new, but more importantly, I saw a lot of red! Red proved to be the total showstopper marketing  venture that a lot of venders utilized! It is eye-catching, it is imaginative, and it is classic! Don’t be afraid to showcase something in red to create a bold statement in your designs and in your fashion choices!

One very important company that combines the bold and the classic to create unforgettable designs is Herman Miller. Last night they proved that they will eternally be designing the showstopper pieces! This was the Spun Chair. You essentially lean back (use the good ‘ol abs), and come back around! It was a ton of fun and everyone just had to try it.

Sometimes, it’s okay to see RED!

Glimpse at Fall Fashion

Hello everyone! Here’s your first look at some of my go-to pieces for fall.

1. If it is tortoise-shell – wear it! This made an appearance in summer, and it’s going to stick around! It is such a classic look and has made a great comeback. Ralph Lauren and Michael Kors reignited that fashion fire! LOVE IT!

2. Natural fall colors are always a great inspiration for anything in the fashion and design world. Right now, if you see the color in a leaf – it’s in: bright mustards, muted pinks, deep purples, greens, and browns.

3. TEXTURE IS HUGE! You wake up and you’re cold, you get to your lunch break and it’s warm, then you get back home and it’s chilly again! Dressing for this kind of weather is easiest if you know how to layer. One of the easiest rules is to add texture. If you wear a simple undershirt add a textured sweater over top. Don a satin shirt and throw a studded leather jacket on over top. Layering and completing a look is all about mixing colors, patterns, and adding textures!

*For my first look: Tortoise-shell Michael Kors boyfriend watch, “You Don’t Know Jacques” OPI nail color, gold arrow band from Charming Charlies, Franco Sarto Leather Peeptoes, an oversized cream sweater from Express, oatmeal colored tank from Target, Straight leg jeans from Express-cuffed at the bottom, & my great-grandmother’s gold necklace*

Let the leaves guide your fall fashion needs

Summer Checklist : Day 5

ITEM 25 : Get a good sweat going in neon/funky workout clothes!

Brightly colored clothes have been all the rage this summer. For some reason, I only decided to go along with this fashion trend when it came to my workout clothes. –> This could have something to do with my family being nervous wrecks about me being hit by oncoming traffic when I disappear for an hour+ long run. There is a safety feature in brightly colored clothes!

Whatever the case may be, I double down dog dare you to wear something crazy to workout in this week! Rock purple animal print pants to Zumba. Sport a fantastically bright orange shirt on your morning run! Wear a safety hazard yellow sports bra under a top to your Body Combat class. (take note that bright colors, especially corals, make skin tones pop and look tanner *body image booster*) Be proud of what you are doing to better your body, mind, and spirit – and don’t be afraid to work up a sweat in style!

Staying fit and funky

Summer Checklist : Day 22

ITEM 10 : Look like a knockout in this season’s fashion trends!

Labor Day is right around the corner, and although that means white shoes are out of the question, you can still rock other summer fashions before September 22! Here are the top 5 trends of SUMMER 2012!

1. Sexiest Summer Trend >Hi-Low  Skirts, especially sheer ones! I got mine at Forever 21 on sale ! They look great with a pair of simple heels & a belt! http://www.forever21.com/Product/Main.aspx?br=f21

2. Throwback Summer Trend >Tribal Patterns & Animal Prints are really hot this season – not just in fashion, but also in home decor! http://www.etsy.com/

3. Bling Bling Summer Trend >Big Rings, Bow Jewelry, & layered bangles AKA arm candy are super cut this season and my bet is that you will continue to see them this fall! http://www.charmingcharlie.com/ (jewelry in image from Charming Charlie)

4. Most Fun Summer Trend >Mani – Pedi Time Ladies! Nail art is everywhere right now & if you have yet to take a trip to your favorite nail salon – now is the time to do it! You can go for girly, glitter nails (Full Spectrum by China Glaze, as shown by yours truly), or try a twist on a classic with colorful-tipped French manicures.

5. Best Badass Summer Trend >Last, but most certainly not least – Spiked Heels! If you are looking for an edgy, nighttime look – spiked heels and cat eyes are a must! http://www.polyvore.com/spike_heels/shop?query=spike+heels

Be Summer Sexy

 

Nailed It

Rule Number 8 in the Decorum and Fashion page reminds us ladies to look presentable from our heads down to our toenails.

Some of the hottest hues that are still taking Summer 2012 by force are mints, corals, vibrant shades of grape, and the color of the year – Tangerine. Neon shellac is a total hit (and girls, it’ll make you look super tan)! Textures, patterns, and “no dry” nails are the latest craze. But if you want to stay subtle, go for the ever-so-classic French or American Manicure. Be a knockout at a beach BBQ by throwing on a cute coverup and painting your nails in my new fav. shade, OPI “On Collins Ave”. And, don’t forget, sand is a natural exfoliant! “Women of the World, Stay Presentable & Proper” ❤
