i'm heading into Stylemax this weekend so i'm pretty much breathing, sleeping and eating fashion right now. i don't know what it is about this industry but i just can't get enough of it. right now i'm swimming in hundreds of new samples coming in daily. it's kind of like experiencing christmas morning an extra 5 times a year. for me personally; it's pretty cool that i get to see what is going to be in stores before it's there. kind of like a little inside scoop.
now this little scoop isn't exactly wallet friendly but hey…you only live once right?
"You live but once; you might as well be amusing."
speaking of inside scoop…
i thought that this week for moda friday i would pick Simal's fashionista brain.
you know…ask all those questions that anyone who cares even a little bit about what they are wearing would ask. aka: things that i have been meaning to ask her but always forget.
p.s….don't be intimidated by my hard hitting journalist questions
1. What are your fashion pet peeves?
-My fashion pet peeves.. hmm... I'd have to say a poorly accessorized outfit or fear of going up a size. Your accessories can totally make or break your outfit. I don't feel like people understand this! If you are not big into jewelry, scarves or belts then get the basic pieces. Everyone needs: a set of bangles, a long necklace, short simple necklace, a cute pair of earrings and maybe a cocktail ring if you're feeling snazzy.
So... who cares! I always tell my customers, do not worry about the size worry about what looks good. If you look like you can't breathe... go up a size!
-This one is easy!!! LOVE, love, LOVE ideeli.com!
They always have top designers for half the price, if not less. You can find just about anything on their site and I've never found it for less than what they are offering anywhere else!
- Gilt.com has just recently come back into my life. I stopped checking out their site once I found out about ideeli but, Gilt always has Rachel Zoe.. and if you remember I am obsessed with her and her clothes.
- Hautelook.com is the last site I check before I really start my day. They aren't 100% on their game. The sales on their site are really a hit or miss.
A great thing about ideeli.com and gilt.com...they let you know the "estimated shipping date" before confirming your order. Here's the best part....they don't charge you until they are ready to ship! Love it!
3. What items should a person splurge on?
Have a great weekend!!
