Outfits we are LOVING: Springy Classic March 04, 2019 18:10
If you run into me when you are shopping, or just talked about clothing in general you have probably heard me preach about basics, wether you wanted to hear it or not. HA. I am a firm believer that somewhere in the neighborhood of 70-80% of your closet should be timeless basics and you can have crazy fun with the last 10-20% depending upon what speaks to you.
This outfit we are loving at the moment, is in that 70-80%. These are pieces that if you wear them tomorrow or 2 years from now, as lon... Read more

Bonfire Style July 13, 2018 12:58
There is nothing better than a summer bonfire, surrounded by friends and families. We can practically taste the gooey s'mores just thinking about it!
Before you can make the perfect s'more, you need a perfect outfit! These sweatshirts are great because they're super soft, super cute, and lightweight so basically, they're the perfect bonfire hoodie :)
This hoodie is a personal favorite! It has adorable ties up the side and feels like a dream! Literally, it is so soft.
This jade color has been so popular for our customers! We love the beautiful color and the terry cloth interior that makes this a great lake sweatshirt! It is also available in grey for those who prefer more of a neutral color :)
These sweatshirts pair nicely with our Spanx Camo Leggings and our Democracy denim so stop in for your new favorite hoodie :)

They're basically the definition of trendy and comfortable. From floral prints to stripes, from neutral to bold colors, there's a perfect wide leg pant for everyone!
We paired these Downeast striped pants with our Downeast Back in Town Top for a casual and trendy look that's perfect for the lakes or weekend shopping. We've added adorable Blowfish platform sandals to complete this look.
For our second look, we swapped out the loose chambray top for a fitted Downeast Essential Tees in black, but you can rock any Essential Tee with these pants! This look is a great casual look, but throw on a statement necklace and grab a cross body purse for the perfect brunch or date night look!
We've have these wide legs pants in several colors and patterns on our website and in stores so come check them out!

Lipsense Review: Unbiased we don't sell it :) October 21, 2017 00:00So this crazy Lipsense stuff. You can watch this 5-6 min video where I talk about Application. But I also have a few thoughts.
- The color really did stay on a long time, I mean, at the 10 hour image, you can still see some color on my lips and I did not apply it again. Not even once.
- Nice color overall. I think that particular color would work well with a variety of different skin tones/teeth colors (I HATE when lip color makes my teeth look more yellowed than they are.. jimminy Christmas they don't need to look more yellowed than they are)
- Tastes kinda chemically

Eye Make Up Tutorial: How I do it anyway. ;) October 20, 2017 12:40
I love seeing how my friends do different things. Especially when it comes to their everyday beauty recommendations. I like saving time. When you are a a super busy person, beauty can end up going by the wayside. BUT it doesn't have to be that way. I generally get my whole face done in 5 min. In the video I am chattering away like a squirrel, so it takes longer. ;)
1. Apply a gold tone to inside corner of eye
2. Apply a sheer sparkly white on brow bone
3. Apply Darkest color in outside corner.
4. Apply Medium toned color in the center of eye and use a brush to blend the colors together.
Fall Style Report: Standout Looks Mocked... slightly September 12, 2017 11:34
Perusing some of my favorite magazines, while I am drinking my coffee this morning. No big surprise to most of you there. ;) But I seriously almost spit my coffee out at the screen laughing at a "standout look" from London that was a lady wrapped in what looked like a large comforter from her bed. The reason I probably thought this was the most funny, is that my Dad, like many of yours I'm sure, slept in his tighty whities. So if someone unexpectedly came to the door before he was awake (which happened if he was on call for machinery breakdowns) he would wrap himself in the blanket from his bed to answer the door. Which is, way better than answering the door in just your underwear... no argument there. I snapped a pic of it to my Mom, because HELLO my Dad was a fashion genius way ahead of his time.
So Fashion Shows outfits are fun to look at because the outfits are literally art. They aren't "Ready to Wear" on the street by any means. Usually I can look at this art work and get an idea of how the look could be tamed down for people to wear in their daily lives.... This morning, that look... still has me scratching my head. But the point here, is that the clothing they show in the vast majority of old school fashion shows is art that isn't necessarily created for "Danielle who works at a bank" to wear everyday. The Fashion Show is generally a way for the designer to show the world the Art and magic of clothing. Then their "Ready to wear" collections are pieces and little bits that you can wear for your everyday.
