Must Have Hair Accessory – Realistic Orchid Hairpin

Orchid Hair PinsThis weekend was dedicated to finding the perfect luau theme cocktail party dress.  No easy task considering the the stores are now featuring their fall lines – resort wear has not yet been released and summer dresses have been banished  from showroom floors.

Bright purple platform sandals as cute as they are comfortable!

Did we find the perfect dress?  Not quite perfect but we settled for a flouncy orange and purple baby doll dress that can be paired with some fun lilac strappy sandals, dangling earrings and the piece de resistance, this lovely realistic orchid hairpin to tie the entire look together.  Izzy will wear her hair in a beach wavy style and slide the orchid just behind her ear.  Now that's what we call Party Pretty!

Oddly enough, we had an even more difficult time finding the perfect hair accessory than the dress itself.  There are lots and lots of flower hair clips available, but most are fake and cheesy looking.  They usually are either too small or too large and don't fit comfortably.  These orchid hair pins are both priced right and fit well.

This orchid hairpin is also the perfect hair accessory for a summer casual or destination wedding,  as a beautiful accessory to a beach or surf theme party or even an upscale costume party since island theme costumes can easily straddle the fine  line between elegant and sexy.  It is always fun to find an accessory that is not only pretty but can be worn over and over in many different contexts –  we will definitely be adding this hair piece to our must own accessory list.

 

Party Hearty!

 

 

 

Psy’s Gangnam Style Costumes

Gangnam Style Halloween CostumesPsy's Gangnam Style was the first video to hit 1B YouTube views!  What better way to spend Halloween than riding an invisible horse in unison with the entire Gangnam Style entourage. The toughest decision you have is whether to be the awesomely hilarious elevator guy, yellow suited dance star, or Psy himself! We did our best to put together ensemble options but this unique style is selling out fast. We'll continue to update your wardrobe options as they become available and remember, the way to truly master the Gangnam Style is to perfect the horse riding dance while holding that serious look on your face!

Bali Chic – Tea Collection’s Globally Inspired Clothes

Bali Chic - Spring 2012 Tea Collection

Bali Chic – Tea Collection's Globally Inspired Clothes

I am writing this post from the heart of NYC having just spent 2 full days dashing in and out of stores up and down  Manhattan looking for style and color trends.  If I had to choose just two words to describe fashion designers' Spring 2012 collections, it is BOLD and Happy.  Color is universal.  Bright oranges and yellows are this year's top colors — better yet if they are done in neon.   Prints are everywhere.  Not just little delicate spring flowers a la Laura Ashley — oh no, we are seeing big, bold statement prints, on tops, on bottoms, and even on belts. Don't just take my word for it, check out what Marie Claire has to say about neon and InStyle's report that bold prints are a key trend for Spring 2012.

Not surprisingly, Tea Collection,  a children's clothing line long favored by celebrities,  is right there on trend, and not just for kids anymore.  Tea Collection's Bali Chic line for women is just like their kid's line except bigger — it is the same high quality soft and durable clothing with a modern look and global consciousness.    Check out their new Balinese batiks and ikats in beautiful, lightweight fabrics and easy shapes. You will love how happy their bright bold colors and prints make you feel.   Spring is definitely in the air.

Party Hearty!
