OMG I ALMOST DIED! Okay, maybe that’s a bit extreme, but I was diagnosed with pneumonia! I couldn’t even believe it but I definitely felt horrible. Yesterday was my first day out of bed and back to work and I was super excited to see all the great new styles from the Tory Burch Resort Collection! I know most of you can’t even wrap your mind around warm weather right now judging by all the snowy and icy Facebook posts Ive been seeing on my timeline lol but that doesn’t mean you can’t prepare for when it gets warm!
For those who aren’t familiar with Tory Burch, Oprah loves her- i think that says enough right there lol. Tory is an amazing fashion designer who is well known for her Reva flats topped with her Double T Gold Logo named after her mom! Her brand was inspired by her parents who had amazing classic style by way of their clothes and home decor!
The 2015 Resort collection is inspired by the sun-bleached palette of painter Milton Avery (who also live in Connecticut-whoop whoop!); and features relaxed, structured and clean silhouettes. You will also notice the use of guipure lace and embroidery inspired by handkerchiefs owned by her mother. Super preppy with a side of sass! I love that her family inspires her designs!
Funny but all true. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE working with designer brands, amazing pieces straight off the runway, and people from different walks of life, but I have to admit..sometimes I can not deal! Lol
There are times when you get to work with some really amazing people who love your style, are open to trying something different and most importantly POLITE and RESPECTFUL.
Other times, I am left feeling unappreciated especially when most consumers almost look to you as a slave (I.e. bring me this, give me that, I need this, I’m in a rush, whats on sale, picking up clothes from the floor, and smelly feet lol but true)
I absolutely love my new role as a Visual Merchandiser as I get to use personal style and creativity to promote some pretty amazing pieces.
Some of you may know her from her latest show Black-ish, or as the daughter of the great Diana Ross, but i refer to Ms. Tracee Ellis Ross as my style crush!
I have loved her from the hit television show Girlfriends. It’s funny because although her character was always wearing the latest and greatest designer apparel and accessories, I hated the way her looks were put together. As the show went on though, she just became super fabulous!- not only in front of the camera, but off screen too!
I love her modest but sexy style and her hair is to die for! She never tries to dress like someone she isn’t and although she doesn’t follow the crowd, she is always on trend! She is also super funny!
I must also give credit to her trusty stylist, Annabelle Harron for always keeping her on point!
Check out some of my favorite looks from Ms. Tracee!
