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…

Game Day!

Ok this is my first blog post from my cell phone and the Blogger app sooooo not exactly sure how this works ๐Ÿ˜‰ Bare with me.
It’s Saturday and that means college game day! I have to say “Go Bucks!”, as I am in Ohio and on my way to begin tailgating. I am loving my game day outfit! I am decked out from head to toe in red & gray and practically a walking billboard for Sophie & Trey! I am sporting my amazing red jeans, comfy brown boots with the red zipper on the side and my super warm yet stylish gray mixed material jacket!

On game day it is very important for u females to be comfortable and show our team spirit but on the other note we want to look cute and attractive! Sophie & Trey is always offering a variety of colors and styles for a game day outfit! By always having solid colored tanks, skirts and dresses you can easily mix and match to fit your own team colors. Then you can always choose an accessories to bring the two together!

Here’s how I am doing it today! Everything is from the two stores except my “Ohio” t-shirt. My jacket is from our online store at www.sophieandtrey.com; the boots are available at 4th & Ocean, red jeans are from Sophie & Trey but no longer available…Orange & a rust red are coming soon to the store so be on the lookout!!!!

Ohio State, UF, FSU, UCF, Alabama…no matter what your team you can be sure to find a cute and spirited outfit for your game day look!!
Just cause it’s a man sport doesn’t mean us women can’t show our support from the sidelines and look amazing doing it! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hope you all enjoy your Saturday!!!

Xoxo

Friday Faves

TGIF!!!! Cheers to the weekend and I’m off to Ohio…to meet the parents ๐Ÿ˜‰ Excited and anxious all in one! Currently sitting at my gate in my new favorite jeans, sipping on my Starbucks earl gray tea, and people watching. Always a good time ๐Ÿ˜‰ So much stuff has come into the store this week like always and while I did splurge on a ton of good finds I have picked out the ones I am completely head over heels for!

I LOVE THIS!! So much actually this is my “Meet the Parents” outfit that I am wearing right now!! Stylish without even trying and SO comfortable!ย

Up close shot of the jeans! OBESSED!!!!!!!!

These jeans truly are amazing! A great fit and I love the fact that they are navy blue and gray striped! The best part is that they are only $39.99 in the store!!! Such a great pair of jeans that you can wear all year long!!! From far away they just look like a normal, great dark jean but as you get closer you notice the detail! I like mixing it up. Even tho they are striped, I paired a thick striped shirt with it for a total edgy and chic look!

My next obsession is this clutch!!! So fabulous!!! They are available at the store for $39.99 and in a variety of colors! I loved them all! There’s silver, gold, black, red & pewter. I had the hardest time choosing between them but went with the classic black. They are pretty roomy! I definitely love that with a pair of jeans and a tank or a dress the clutch matches and adds some glam rock to the outfit!

My last must have for this week is this bag that’s in the store! I’m absolutely loving the studded accent on the camel color. Plus it’s a shoulder bag, which I love since you don’t have to hold or carry it. The tassel is a fun and flirty accent. It has just the right amount of room! Can keep your camera, iPhone, wallet, lip gloss and a compact. What more do you need? It’s perfect. This is positively a perfect bag for every outfit. Love it for the fall especially!

Cabin Fever

So I’m leaving for Ohio tomorrow (don’t worry I’ll still be blogging lol) and realize I am the typical Florida girl whose closet is full of tank tops, bathing suits, and shorts. This doesn’t give me a lot to pack to go off to a farm where it’s going to be 30 degrees at night! So I’ve been on the hunt this morning for sweaters, jackets and anything long sleeve to keep me from catching hypothermia. These are my favorites and must have’s for winter!

Love this sweater from sophieandtrey.com

Layering for winter is a must! I’m always getting hot, cold, hot, cold and going inside to outside. So layering is the perfect solution! Then you always have the option to peel off a layer or add depending on the temperature. It’s definitely a good idea to just get a basic tank or long sleeve to have as your base layer and then go from there by adding a long sleeve shirt over the tank or if you are wearing a long sleeve as your base, go straight for a sweater. Sweaters are always nice to have. Even if you’re just going to a class, they always keep those rooms freezing! Make sure your sweater can breathe and doesn’t suffocate you! We don’t want to be that warm. I’d have to say most important and one of the things you should invest in this winter is a good, solid coat. Depending on where you’re going this winter, and even during some nights here as we get into November and December, you will need a good coat or jacket! The ones below are awesome! So comfy and keep you warm but without burning a hole in your wallet! Make sure your coat fits you well. The seams on the shoulders should match up with right where your shoulder curves down to your arm. You also want to make sure when you reach forward or stretch back that it’s not pulling and too tight across the chest. Sometimes this might cause you to go up a size, especially if you plan on wearing a ton of layers underneath or a super thick sweater. It’s a good idea to wear or take a sweater or long sleeve to try on with the coat or jacket just to make sure. Check out what I found this morning and some of which I will be packing tonight!

Love the mix of material used in this gray jacket!

 

Perfect sweater for layering or can always make it into a dress by wearing a tube slip underneath!

 

My fave! I love mine! Perfect military olive green coat!

 

Obsessed with this sweater! Just the right amount of sparkle to jazz it up a bit!

 

Perfect for any afternoon no matter where you are! A classic for sure!

 

Love this! A hint of modern over-sized fit mixed with a vintage look!

 

For the edgy, rocker that is in all of us!!!!

These are some of the looks I am in love with right now. All of this stuff is available atย Sophie & Trey’s online store or 4th & Ocean’s online store!

Who says you can’t look sexy in winter too?!? Wearing this stuff…you easily can!!
Check out the online sites!!! Tomorrow is Friday!!!!!!!

Love, Dani

 

Spice up your life with tights!

Photography by Marisol
Printed tights? Yes please! I have found one of my new favorite trends for the fall season! I don’t know why I have never gotten into this before! I mean I’ve worn tights, but these are fabulous! I’m not sure why no one really gets into printed ones. Tights offer a nice layer for cool weather, especially here. Now with a print they can be the center of the outfit and yet so simple.

Printed tights available at Sophie & Trey $6.99

I’m loving the solid ones too, mainly to just add warmth but it also keeps my outfit looking clean. Also a classic is just the simple sheer brown, gray and black. Always a favorite that can be added to anything you wear. Go fun and flirty with a bold color!

Sophie & Trey -Sheer Tights – Tan, Green & Pink $6.99

The “knit” looking ones are pretty awesome and my 2nd fave behind the printed because they add the stripes down your legs. As a result it adds a little detail but also makes your legs look longer and leaner. Who doesn’t love that?! Tights are given enough credit and get lost in the whole leggings and jeggings trends. We tend to forget that tights are also in the mix and great alternative. You can wear tights with a dress, shorts, skirts and even under a pair of jeans that have holes or rips so they peek through.

Tights – Sophie & Trey               Boots – 4th & Ocean

Tights – Sophie & Trey            Wedges – Sophie & Trey

“Knit looking” tights at Sophie & Trey $9.00

According to the survey results about your fall faves….printed tights tied as last place along with fur and leather trends. Now that you can seen how FABULOUS they can be, I dare you to go out, grab a pair and try this trend!!! You won’t regret it. Send me a pic of how you wore your tights at danirae.kemp@gmail.com and I’ll post the top 3!!
