game day

recap: fashion segment

Happy Wednesday, glitter girls!

I was thrilled to be asked by a local television station to put together a few Georgia Southern “game day” looks in honor of GSU’s homecoming last weekend. I was a little nervous about speaking on live television, but I think I did fine. The clothes speak for themselves anyway, right?

J couldn’t make it down for this event, but she was there in spirit. Here are a few pics of yours truly, plus a photo of each model. I am lucky to have such beautiful friends!  Check out the fashion magic we worked with GSU’s colors: navy, gold and white.

L + Employees
thanks to all of my fantastic employees who showed up in their own game day outfits!

“Cute and Casual” Tailgate Look:

Game Day Look 1
yes, this look qualifies as “game day”…but you can rock these gold skinnies and chambray shirt any day of the week.

Cold Weather Looks:

Game Day Look 2
you can’t see them, but shannon’s leopard print loafers are my favorite part of this cold weather look. every outfit needs a little pattern.
Game Day Look 3
we layered a tank, cardi and leather jacket to create our second “cold weather” look.

Dressy Post-Game Looks:

Game Day Look 4
this was the simplest outfit we did, but i think it had the most impact. love the sparkly tee paired with dark jeans and simple heels. sequins for day? yep.
Game Day Look 5
pair classics like a white button-down and navy blazer with a shimmer skirt and ankle boots. so glitter.

Most of these styles can be found on www.shopsocialdish.com.

Glitter Girls!

There is SO MUCH going on this weekend! Let us fill you in…

1. Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week: NYFW kicked off yesterday in The Big Apple. L and I have already decided we’re attending next year;  in the meantime we will be watching the shows live here. Here are the shows we’re MOST looking forward to:

DVF
Diane Von Furstenberg’s bold prints + classic silhouettes = our obsession. spring 2012 pictured.
Tory Burch and Models Spring 2011
L and I are *huge fans* of Tory Burch’s neo-preppy style. spring 2011 pictured.
rachel-zoe-fashion-week-1
Rachel Zoe herself is no stranger to Fashion Week, but her clothing line is fairly new. How can you not love these flattering looks? spring 2012 pictured.

2. Football: Whether you’re cheering on the Falcons from your fave watering hole (it will be The Ivy for me as per usual) or watching Georgia Southern take down The Citadel in Charleston, you’ll need an outfit. We don’t wear jerseys around here, ladies…

4. Closet Clean-Up: Ladies, time to replace those bikinis and flip-flops with sweaters and boots. Get your closet in check this weekend. Check out these tips from Emily at Cupcakes and Cashmere (ADORE):

Organize by color –

blouses
suddenly, your random purple blouse looks right at home.

Showcase favorites –

we play favorites, and so do you. let’s look at them daily.

Keep things accessible –

i know, i know. ridiculous. but i HAD to post a pic of my dream closet.

5. Nails: Nothing gets us more excited than the thought of deep fall hues on our nails. Here’s what we’re feeling:

velvet nails
how amazing is this wine color!? and the velvet texture!? WE DIE.
