Find the Perfect Swimsuit For Memorial Day Fun!

22 May

With Memorial Day coming, is your water wardrobe ready?

Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of summer and that means lot’s of summer activities, especially going to the beach or hanging out by the pool.

So how is your swimsuit situation?

Luckily, I’m always here to help!  I’ve put together a small sampling of perfectly fashionable swimsuits for the whole family!

First up, the ladies: Athleta & Macy’s

Athleta is home to a variety of designs, particularly for anyone who spends as much time in the water as they do exercising on the beach.  I wanted to include them since I know many of you like an athletic look to a swimsuit and one that is designed to stay on in the surf.

However, if you’re looking for a more traditional design, Macy’s has a positively huge selection to choose from!

For the guys, Macy’s is also my suggestion for the perfect pair of trunks!

And for the wee-ones, Naartjie Kids has some adorable swimwear for the summer! You might want to get two they’re so cute!

There you have it! A style for everyone in the family.

Let me know if you need ANY help finding the perfect style for your body type and I would be happy to help in any way I can.

Remember your sunblock!

2012 Prom Dress & Trends Galore!

14 Mar

Prom is almost here! So ladies… what are YOU wearing???

Choosing a prom dress is an exciting time for any young woman and going to the prom is a perfect time and occasion to express individual personality, style, and taste.

Each dress is uniquely crafted, just like the girl trying it on 🙂 From sultry and hot to fun and bright, from long or short to floral or sparkles, no matter the choice, there is a dress out there for every girl with any taste!

  I remember spending hours and hours trying to find the perfect one, just to be left wanting them all!  As I was walking through Macy’s this weekend, I found myself browsing the prom dress section – just to see the fun new styles girls are choosing from today. I have to admit, though my high school days are long gone, I have to say, I felt the itch to try some on!

So here are my GURU suggestions for Prom!

Flowers and spring are unanimous; you can’t think of one without the other. So it’s no wonder springy floral prints will be popping up all around. These fun, floral patterns are so popular, especially for the silk, floor-length straight gowns.  Gradual color fading in and out of the fabric keeps the look fresh and flirty and very easy to accessorize.

Keeping with the trends and Spring season, dresses this year are high on floral embellishment, like this one here from Macy’s:

The Alex and Ever Dress, 

Sleeveless One Shoulder Tiered Floral Print

Alex & Eve adorn this graceful dress with a pretty floral print and a hip high-low hem that's sure to turn heads!

 Another hip trend for prom dresses right now is BOLD COLORS!  Bold colors like electric turquoise, bright purples and pretty raspberry are super hot right now and while bold colors were a hit in 2011, this year it is all about the style of the dress – in particular, the one shoulder and sweetheart style.

Sequin Hearts Dress,
Strapless Sweetheart Pleated Colorblock 

Strike a fierce pose in this dress from Sequin Hearts that boasts a slim fit and colorblocking that pops!

High-Low hems are another trend making a huge wave this 2012 prom year.  Seems like they’re popping up everywhere, even for casual day wear.  I think it’s the best of both worlds – can’t decide between a short dress or a long one? The high-low hem prom dresses are a perfect compromise!

Xscape Dress,
Strapless Sweetheart Neck Jeweled Evening Gown

This Xscape dress may be floor-length in the back, but it's simply flooring at the front-graceful layers of sheer fabric are cut to just above the knee.

Short and flirty styles have always been around – and this year is no different – the key in 2012 is to have a flirty skirt as opposed to the tight style.  Flirty. fun and over the top skirts are not only fashionable but perfect for dancing all night!

Speechless Dress,
Strapless Sequin Sash Rosette Tulle- A-Line
$99.00 (WHAT A STEAL!!!)

Be the hot and flirty belle of the ball in this deluxe party dress from Speechless that sports a fun skirt of vibrant tulle!

We’ve talked a lot about bold colors this year, but we can’t forget about bold styles!  Bold styles are so in this year and that’s why you won’t be surprised when you’re in search of your perfect dress that you’ll stumble upon a lot of over-the-top exciting styles.  This is a great opportunity to stand out. With so many gorgeous dresses out there, more and more girls are going toward bold prom dress styles with details like embellishments, bright colors and flirty ruffles.

Trixxi Dress,
Strapless Sweetheart, Pleated Sequin Chiffon 

Flowing chiffon overlays a hot, sequined mini on this dress from Trixxi that's glam to the max!

 Finding the perfect dress can be difficult, but just remember, whatever dress pattern and style you choose, ensure that the dress makes you feel special and you feel comfortable wearing it 🙂  You’re beauty is sure to shine through when you feel great!
Is there a dress you have in mind that I can help you find?  What are you planning to wear for your special day?
Stay tuned tomorrow, I’ll be unveiling some awesome shoe choices and some great up-do ideas!

Macy’s Wedding Registry

3 Mar

I don’t know about you, but it seems to me that wedding season is almost here!  Not only do I already have a few save the dates on my refrigerator,  I also have the pleasure of being a bridesmaid in a girlfriend’s wedding this coming May!  With all this wedding stuff dancing around me, it got me thinking about wedding season and everything that a soon-to-be bride and groom go through to get to that special day, especially the all-daunting task of the registry!  I had the pleasure of sitting down with the fabulous Whitney Pilson, who by the way is the Bridal Registry Consultant at The Streets at Southpoint Macy’s, and she walked me through the Wedding Registry process (which really isn’t very difficult at all)!

First things first – Macy’s Wedding and Gift Registry is located on the upper level where you find all the home goods – you can walk right in and take a seat OR make an appointment, either is fine, however,  I would recommend making an appointment (when I arrived on Sunday afternoon there was a couple already there and then another walked up while Whitney and I were talking). The whole set-up process only takes about 10-15 minutes, a lot of brides come in on their own for the set up portion and then bring their hubby-to-be with them at another time to start scanning.

Macy's How-To Registry Guide

Upon arrival, you will receive this super nifty Registry  How-To Kit, it contains everything and anything you could ever need to know about registering – it even has a super helpful check-list to make sure you’ve covered all your bases..It covers it all – I’m talking the kitchen, the bedroom, the bathroom, the dining room, and even travel needs!

Registry Checklist

One of the best things about registering with Macy’s is the Registry Star Rewards Program!  Macy’s wedding and gift registry entitles you to gifts, bonuses and benefits that you won’t find anywhere else. As a Registry Star Rewards member you’ll receive Rewards on your registry gifts and Macy’s purchases.  From the day you enroll until your wedding date, receive 10% rewards on eligible purchases made with your Macy’s credit account and 5% Rewards on eligible gifts purchased from your Macy’s registry. After your wedding, you’ll receive the total amount of your Rewards in a Rewards Card to purchase any items  throughout the store (even the ones that you didn’t receive as a gift on your registry)! How awesome is that??!

What else is cool about Macy’s Registry? You can update and manage your registry online!  After your initial in-store setup, you’ll receive an email with your online registry information – it’s just that easy to manage your registry and have 24/7 access to it!  And if you’re one of those people that LOVE to use your phone for everything (I’m one of those people), you can also manage your registry on your mobile device, so you can check-in on it wherever you are, whenever you want! Oh, and one more thing, you can share your registry on your Facebook page!!

So, in talking with Whitney, I realized that china is one of the most popular gifts couples register for.  China is something i know very little about and if you’re in the same boat, have no fear, Whitney has just the thing for you – a mock dining set-up!  What’s this you ask?  Well, Macy’s makes it so easy to choose the perfect dining set – not only do they have awesome selection, but they also set it up for you right there in the store so you can mix and match until you find the perfect combination!  How wonderful is that?!

Check out Macy's Bridal Consultants, Whitney and LaTosha, standing next to the mock table set-up.

I asked Whitney what the hottest selling China is right now and she let me in on a little secret – Casual China!  It’s versatile, sleek, dishwasher safe, and microwavable!  (She had me at dishwasher safe!)  

Casual China

So, once you’re all registered the rest is up to your guests!  They can just walk right up to the registry kiosk (which is easy to find, there’s a big REGISTRY sign hanging above it on the upper level in home goods), type in your name, get a little printout of your registry and VOILA, gifts are being purchased!

So, when your time comes, don’t forget about Macy’s Registry!  It’s easy, fun, and the Bridal Consultants are so friendly and eager to help!
If you’d like to get in touch with the Macy’s Bridal Consultants, Whitney Pilson or LaTosha Terry, you can reach them at 919-361-7039 ext 515.
