Glitz & Glam with Sequins

The weekend is almost here! I can taste it! Whether you are going out downtown or hitting up Blue Martini for their Little Black Dress party you know you want to be looking your best! As a lady you know you love getting all dressed up! You do your hair, put on the lip gloss that you love and a dress that makes every man’s head turn! What is a better way to get noticed by your crush then with sequins!

Sequin dresses are the perfect fall pick to be loud and proud this season! Sequin dresses speak for themselves! There is no need to go overboard with accessories, bags, hair and make up. It’s best to keep those things simple. Try pairing a sequin dress with a small leather clutch or a knuckle duster clutch! For jewelry add some bangles and hoops or studs. This will make your look seem effortless yet Let the dress do all the talking.

As seen in the pictures a nude or solid heel is perfect. A neutral shoe makes your legs go on for days and doesn’t take away from the dress. When doing your hair, let it be natural. Don’t try to hard. Keep it down and straight or in a loose ponytail. Make up should be mostly natural with a nude lip gloss or light pink. Feel free though to go heavy on the eyes with a smoky look, black liner and mascara.

Fake it to Make it, Fur & Leather!

Faux fur and leather have been all the rage this season!! From fur vests to boots and leather jackets to high waisted shorts! Who needs the real deal? I have started having a fur fetish this fall season!! I am loving the vests paired with a tight solid dress or my new FAVORITE JEANS, tank and boots! Fur and leather have both been used throughout time. They are both classic fabrics and perfect for the cooler, winter time.


Completely feminine chic and fabulous! Available at Sophie & Trey

When I think of leather I think biker chic. I love that edgy biker look which looks amazing in a jacket. Now we are definitely starting to see more and more of a modern, straight lines feminine look! I am super excited about this! Seeing leather being used in a more smooth, sleek way. I just got this fabulous brown faux leather jacket from Sophie & Trey and I am obsessed to say the least!!! I love the mixing of the two trends and how they incorporated both! Leather is being seen this season in a variety of textures and fabrics. The straight lines, smooth leather and then the soft vintage leather. Fur is more being used in a variety of colors and shades. From black to dark brown to a mixed white and beige brown. So many options! The jacket I bought from the store yesterday is a soft brown faux leather and looks like it’s been crumpled like a sheet of paper. (Picture below)

Love this! Gives me a Top Gun kind of feel 😉

Heels. Booties. Pumps. Oh my!

How many pairs of shoes do you own? Personally I own about 37 pairs and counting. Wikipedia defines a shoe as, “is an item of footwear intended to protect and comfort the human foot while doing various activities. Shoes are also used as an item of decoration.” To me shoes are an accessory that you just can’t seem to have enough of. Heels, boots, booties, flats or wedges whichever you choose they are an intricate part of any ensemble that brings it all together.

Both Available at Sophie & Trey

When shoe shopping comfort is probably the number one priority. Sometimes how haute the shoe is become more important than comfort. Pain is beauty. I would sacrifice my feet and gain some blisters if that sexy pair of heels is absolutely to die for! Since I am a shopaholic, and that doesn’t discriminate when it comes to what I put on my feet, I love that Sophie & Trey offers shoes anywhere from $19.99 – around $60. It definitely fits into any budget. Also those higher prices shoes are either real leather or have real fur, so all in all, not too shabby!!! A shoe completes your look or they can be the entire statement and focal point of the outfit! For instance the leopard pair below has glitz and glam that could just be paired with your favorite LBD (little black dress) and the look is complete! You would have a fierce and sexy finished look in just a few seconds!!!

A solid black pair of peep toe pumps is a must for every closet.

Remember when shoe shopping to comfort is key. You want to make sure the shoe fits! No matter what size you are always make sure you try on a pair before buying them. Each brand and designer can run a bit different. Some big, some small. So take the time and try them on. You want to make sure you can move your toes and aren’t touching the front of the shoe. Also make sure the heel doesn’t rub too much. You want to have a little wiggle room without slipping off. If you can stick your finger between the back of the shoe and your heel, go down a size. Another solution that works wonders are the gel inserts! Love them! They are perfect for every shoe! If one size is a little big and the other too small, just slip the inserts in the back and inside of the shoes and it will take away almost half a size! They are miracle workers and perfect for when you find that must have heel and it’s a bit too big!  Plus they add some comfort and make the back of my heels not rub!

So next time you are on the hunt for a stunning, show stopping pair of shoes remember to stop by the stores!! We’re always getting in new and amazing heels, wedges, boots, pumps and more! We also carry the gel inserts!!

Happy 1st day of November!!!!!!!! I love this month….my birthday and Thanksgiving!!! Can’t get much better!!! Have a great Tuesday!!!!

Bandage Bombshell

Back in Orlando and back to reality! Ha ha ha! Trip was awesome and so much fun! Can’t believe the Buckeyes won 😉 Now it’s Monday morning and Happy Halloween!!!! What are you dressing up as?? If you still need a costume come stop by the store today! We have plenty of options for you to create an outfit out of and the best part…you can wear it again!!! Like this 60’s hippie costume…

Have fun and be safe while out trick or treating tonight! 

Now….Are you looking to make head’s turn in November?? One of the latest and hottest trends this season is the bandage dress! It literally sticks to you like a band-aid. The dress comes in a variety of colors and styles from strapless to tank or black to purple.

A bandage dress is the perfect solution for an easy sexy look. The material is tight and fitted but doesn’t feel that way. It’s not an uncomfortable tight, you can still breathe easily. It also smooths out all of our “imperfections” as we call them! Ha ha ha. No bumps, lines or bulges. This style dress is definitely a must have for a spontaneous night out downtown, happy hour with your girlfriends, or your man’s birthday party!

The Slip Dress

What do you think of when you hear the word “slip”? I think of my mom’s white satin slip with lace on the bottom that she use to wear in the late 80’s and 90’s underneath her skirts or dresses. Not very appealing to me but surprisingly I now wear a slip on the regular. They aren’t your average loose, satin looking one you might think of. Not everyone is aware that at Sophie & Trey you can get one of these amazing slips! I swear by them. Not only are they the perfect thing to make that semi sheer dress or skirt opaque but they also aid in helping those little bumps and lumps fade into the fabric. For example that problem most of us have when our bra strap cuts a bit into our back and there’s a line you can see. This slip dress helps!

In order: Gray, nude, black, white, brown and ivory
Tank style $19.99

Strapless or spaghetti strap $14.99

We have a few different varieties depending on what you are going to use it for and wear it with! There is the spaghetti strap, a tank strap and strapless. All fabulous! They are one size fits all and stretch. The best part is that they aren’t overly tight! These are not Spanx, they are better! The material is so soft and comfortable you won’t even believe it!

The slip dress can literally be used as a dress! I wear my black one all the time and people always comment on how much they love it. I tell them it’s not even a dress or skirt and show them how it is a basic slip. You can adjust how long or short you want it when you put it on, just pull it to the desired length. If you’ve been looking for the perfect black skirt this makes the best one. Also it works wonders on if you have a dress or tunic you just love and want to wear as a dress but is too short. My solution…Just put one of these under it and it will add length to that tunic or dress so it looks like it’s part of the outfit. With this slip you don’t have to worry about it riding up or being blown up in the wind. The are definitely a staple item to have in your closet. I would say a nude and black would be your first purchases if you don’t buy them all at once! See how Rachel and I did it…
