Upgrade your beach attire

June 10, 2013

The official first day of summer was last Friday and with it came a heat wave and sunny skies that is forecasted to last well into this week, at least here on the East Coast. So, in honor of that, I thought that we could talk a little beach fashion.

“Beach fashion?” you say. “Isn’t the beach the place where I can escape fashion and just wear cut-off shorts and grubby t-shirts and tank tops over my swimsuit?” Why, yes it most certainly is and that is what you will find even me in most of the time.      


However, if you need to step things up either because you are at a fancy beach resort or pool, you are lounging beachside or poolside with co-workers or clients or if you just simply want to feel more fashionable at the beach in the off-chance you might meet someone, here are some quick upgrades that you can make.    

  1. Swap the baseball cap for a straw fedora or wide-brimmed sun-hat.
  2. Skip the rubber or plastic flip-flops and opt for strap-on leather or raffia sandals instead.
  3. Leave the canvas tote at home and carry a straw tote.
  4. Pull on a sun-dress, tunic-length cover-up or tie on a sarong in place of the tank top and cut-offs.
  5. Pack up an old-fashioned picnic basket instead of the plastic cooler.
  6. Upgrade your beach chair if yours is looking stained, rusted or otherwise worse-for-wear.
  7. Instead of a messy bun, plait hair in a pretty braid over one shoulder to keep it out of your face.
  8. Keep the sun out of your eyes with some fashion-focused eyewear instead of a more function-focused pair.
  9. If you are seeing clients and co-workers, best to opt for a more modest one-piece than your skimpiest bikini.
  10. A colorful beach towel that coordinates with your bathing suit and cover-up is an added bonus.
Seem like too much work for a day at the beach? Pick 3-4 of the above suggestions rather than trying to tackle the entire lot. Even a few minor adjustments will give you the upgrade that you need to feel both fashionable and beach-ready all at the same time!

Dolce & Gabbana Rock

November 07, 2018

After reading about Dolce & Gabbana’s new shop at 155 Mercer Street in Manhattan’s SoHo, I decided to pay a visit to see these digs for myself. On Friday, August 17th when it was close to 90 degrees F. I took the Downtown #6 subway and got off at Spring Street (a 10-minute trip). This left me at Spring/Lafayette and from there I walked west to Mercer where I crossed the street and took a short walk to 155 – all told a fairly easy jaunt.

Fashion Week - Street Style Trends

November 04, 2018

There is something fun about watching the designer's vision on the runway. Yes, not all of the looks are practical, but it helps to bring what once were drawings and ideas to life. That part of the creative process is interesting to me. When it comes to street style, I have grown to appreciate this fashion scene.

BODYWEAR

We use Italian lingerie sizing  for our bodywear and items tend to run small.

Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.

 

MODAL TEES

Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
