Get the Look!

Check our FB VIP group, Kellie posted her family photo on the beach, and this outfit is SO GREAT!! Classic white in a beach photo, but adding the pop of coral really added something different! Add some fun earrings and you are set to go!

Not going on a beach vacation? Me either! But I can feel like I'm at the beach with these earrings on!

XL vs 1XL, the most confusing size

XL vs 1XL, the most confusing size

As if clothes shopping isn't hard enough, the sizing as you get to an XL changes and can be frustrating. I get asked this question often, so wanted to share my understanding. But note, everything varies by brand. My best advice is to ignore the size on the label & wear what makes you feel best! 

XL is a "missy" cut, generally covering sizes 14-16. 1XL is a "plus" cut, generally covering the 14-16W. So what gives here? Why 2 sizes that all seem the same? It's going to be the cut.

A XL and a 1XL in the same item and same brand will be cut different, with the plus cut being a curvier fit with more room for boobs, hips & thighs. Occasionally you will also so a 0X, which is smaller than a 1XL, close to a curvy cut Large. 

Most of our items don't have an XL, they just jump to 1XL. In the flowy tops and dresses, the difference between an XL and a 1XL is minimal, so they will generally pick one or the other. I lived in this space between an XL and 1XL for years, and found that I could mostly wear either size; which gave me more options to chose from! 

What to watch for if you are in the sizing area:

- Fit: If the item is fitted, as for chest or hip measurements, then measure something that already fits you to know how they compare. 

- Stretch: If the item has stretch, you may be fine in either size. If the item has no stretch, you may want to go up. 

- Flow: If it is flowy, think about how you want to item to fit on you and size up or down to get that right look. 

- Length: If you are shorter or taller, you may want to take length into account. I generally size up for length.

If you still aren't sure, reach out to one of us and we will be happy to help walk you through a decision. We want you to love your clothes and how they make you feel!

Trend Report: Tassels

Trend Report: Tassels

Tassels have been coming into style for the past few months, but they are absolutely here now and planning to stay a while. We saw these all over market, in countless styles. We love all of what we are seeing, on clothes and jewelry! They can be subtle or add a real pop! 

My favorite are tassel earrings. We have several varieties here and coming, but the fanned tassel earrings are currently my go-to. We also have long silk tassel drops coming next week, that are so soft and light! These will be a need to have in everyone's jewelry box!
