From Coachella to Stagecoach to FYF and Gov Ball, music and art festivals are more popular than ever. While music may be the main focus of thesae festivals, one could argue that the festival fashion, and especially Coachella fashion, is the true showstopper! Here is our issue with so many of the Coachella outfits >> they are what we have begun to call wanna-be's. Rather than being authentic 70's and bohemian style outfits, they are fakes. It is a little like home decorating. All those tiles that are trying to look like wood or stone and simply are not, drive us completely crazy. We always say don't choose a fake version of something if you can readily get the real thing. Same with clothes. Why buy fake 70's clothes when you can buy real vintage one of a kind outfits. This is why we turned to Daryn Belinsky, of Little Light Vintage, for her take on this year's festival wear. Continue Reading →
Today's PIP's Pick!
These lovely personalized necklaces are perfect Valentine's gifts. We particularly like rose gold for Valentine's Day (and rose gold is very much on trend this year)!
I am especially partial to name necklaces since my own wonderful mom gave all her daughters a name necklace one Valentine's Day many moons ago. They were particularly helpful for my sisters since their friends often had difficulty knowing which name went to which twin. 🙂
And we love the Moon & Lola “love you more” necklace. #too cute
Wear Outfits, Not Costumes
Just today we received an email from Shopstyle announcing that outfits rather than costumes are 2015's hottest Halloween trend. We wanted to scream – told you so! Every Halloween we feature real life clothes that can be dressed up for Halloween and then worn again throughout the year.
For example a must own little black dress like the one featured below, and available in sizes xs – 4x, can be paired with black cat bags, headbands, shoes, jewelry and cat face paint. And then after Halloween you can continue to wear the dress and all the accessories, just not all together.
Today's PIP's Pick!
We particularly like the rose gold or hot pink and red acrylic name and monogram necklaces for holiday gifts and even for Valentine's Day and Mother's Day.
I am especially partial to the children's name necklaces since my own wonderful mom gave all her daughters a name necklace for our birthdays many moons ago. They were particularly helpful for my sisters since their friends often had difficulty knowing which name went to which twin. 🙂 — Happy birthday Caryn & Carole!
Check out Adele wearing a personalized name necklace – still hard to read the name but the buzz is it is the name of her baby! Since this necklace is right on trend, we wouldn't be at all surprised if we see Princess Kate wearing a George name necklace this Mother's Day.
What is a Grilled Cheesus?
The term “grilled cheesus” was coined on Season 2, Episode 3 of Glee. Basically, Finn, the football playing, male lead glee club member, sees the face of Jesus in the score marks made on a sandwich using his George Foreman Grill — hence ‘Grilled Cheesus.'
