Superbowl Attire (III)

Superbowl Attire (III)

Hello Fashionistas!
It's that time AGAIN!!! Superbowl XLIX is today. The frenzy and excitement for the big game is in the air. Now, I'm not a big fan of football, but I'm a huge fan of fashion. It's interesting to see how women dress for the big game. Some wear their significant others' gear - whether it's an old sweatshirt, t-shirt or hat - we try to be team players as much as possible. Other women want to look cute, so they wear what they like regardless of representing a particular team.

Who are you rooting for? The Patriots or Seahawks? Or, how about, which colors would you rather... be caught wearing that is?

Check out my post from last year (here). The Seahawks made it to the Super Bowl another year.

Guys, take note...(III)

Guys, take note...(III)


Hello Fashionistas!
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Still recovering from all the turkey I ate. Just kidding! But seriously, it was great to see family and spend quality time together. Very proud of myself for completing this Christmas gift guide early in the month. If you've been following my blog since I started in 2012, you know that these gift guides are usually geared towards the guys (see here) and (here). The reason for this is, I think I have a pretty good idea of what women want, especially if it's something trending or in fashion, however, their guys' may not have a clue. Hence, these posts titled: Guys, take note so women can leave these posts on their computers or mobile screens so their significant others can stumble upon it and get a clue as to what it is you want for a Christmas gift. Do you ladies agree with my list? If not, what would you like for Christmas?

Marley Lilly Monogrammed Me

Hello Fashionistas! 
It's Fri-yay! Any big plans for the weekend? Who's going to see The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, part 1

Today I want to introduce you to a fabulous online company that provides monogrammed personalization for products and gifts; that company is Marley Lilly. They recently sent me a bracelet and a cross-body bag/clutch to review. Before I tell you about the products, I have to say, the items were so well packed - bubble wrap, paper and monogrammed packaging - I was really impressed. Now on to the products. The monogrammed tassel bracelet I received, measures around 7 inches with an adjustable chain and pendant. My initials were engraved on the pendant and the Marley Lilly Logo was also attached. The bracelet has a really nice gold-plated finish and the tassel gives it a bit of swag. They do have tassels in several different colors and bracelets in a silver finish.This is a bracelet I will treasure forever for the personalization and I think this will be a timeless piece of jewelry. The monogrammed Luxe cross-body bag, which can also be worn as a clutch, is perfect for date-night. It has just enough room inside for your phone, wallet and your lipstick to freshen up after dinner. The chain can be removed to become a stylish clutch. Inside there is a snap closure to prevent your contents from spilling out. Each bag has a different color trim which is not very obvious but it's all in the details. Overall, I'm very pleased with both items and you'll be seeing them on the blog often. I highly recommend that you check out Marley Lilly for affordable personalized gift ideas for the holidays, which is right around the corner. They have a variety of items to choose from, such as: jewelry, accessories, footwear, clothing and so much more.

Date Night with Jeremy Tarian

Hello Fashionistas!
 It's Fri-yay! So happy the weekend is here, and to celebrate, the hubster and I went to dinner and a movie. Have you guys seen Beyond The Lights starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Nate Parker? I've been anticipating the release date of this movie since I saw the first preview; and it hasn't helped any that Wendy Williams has been showing teasers all week on her show. The movie is about the pressures of fame, two people falling in love and learning to be courageous. This is a must-see! Let me know what you think after you've seen it.

This LBD (which didn't start out that way) from Ann Taylor Loft, is a great piece to wear to the office or a business function. However, I wanted to alter it a tad bit and change it into a date night dress. Originally, the dress reaches right above the knee. After cinching at the waist using this belt from The Limited, I gathered some of the material over the belt to create what you see now. I love a black-on-black outfit, sprinkled with a few colorful accessories. The accessories were chosen to compliment the shade of my Jeremy Tarian sunglasses.  

Reading my Special Edition Lucky magazine for this Fall/Winter

Angry Elephant 1969: Fashion With A Cause

Hello Fashionistas! 
Hope everyone had a fashionating weekend. I certainly did, thanks to Angry Elephant 1969! What's an Angry Elephant? It's a Loxodonta elephant that is currently being poached for its ivory in Africa as you read this blog post. The founders of Angry Elephant created an apparel line to bring awareness of the poaching crisis (up to 25,000 elephants are killed each year for ivory) affecting the African Loxodonta elephant and the destruction of its natural habitat. The company's products include T-shirts, hoodies, headgear, and wrist bands which promote the message of the Angry Elephant Clothing line. After I was approached by one of the founders, I was fascinated by the information I read on their website and after doing my own research. Yes, clothes/fashion is always a  huge interest for me, but I was more interested in the cause. Now, to put the two together, feels really good. Please take the opportunity to visit the website and read about Angry Elephant's inception and what their mission and objectives are. Oh, did I mention, the t-shirts and sweatshirt I received were all made in the USA!

T-shirt: Thanks to Angry Elephant Clothing! 
Sweatshirt: Thanks to Angry Elephant Clothing!

I've teamed up with one of the founders of Angry Elephant Clothing to host a t-shirt styling competition (coming soon) featuring five (5) participants: Several fashion bloggers, models (one male) and a personal stylist featured on WJXT "Fashion 4ward" TV fashion segments. This will be a friendly competition to show the individual styles of each participant; they are allowed to create any look they like, whether it's an edgy look, corporate/business, casual, etc. Check back for more details on the competition, the participants and the prize package.

I have to thank my husband for helping me out with this one. He's not one for being in front of the camera so this really meant a lot when he said he would wear the sweatshirt and allow me to feature him on the blog. He's down with the cause! :-)

In addition to being sold online, Angry Elephant Clothing is now available in store at Tom Dick & Harry's - Manhattan, NY.
