The Girlfriend Experience

Hello Glam & Sassy loves.  Did you know it is only 55 more days till Spring?  That is the good news. The bad news is we have to first survive the most painful day of the year between now and then. It comes in February and no it is not Groundhog Day as I would surely endure six more weeks of winter a lot easier than I can this bullshit holiday called Valentine’s Day. If there were any way to eliminate it from our lives, I would be all for it. Now you may think I have such a strong dislike for the day which is February 14th because I am single. Or am I?  Single or not, I refuse to put pressure on myself or my partner to make a fuss over each other just because the stores are pushing retail sales in the form of a red heart. I deserve to have a fuss made over me everyday and I absolutely do the same in return.  Besides, haven’t we all noticed by now that the service and food on this night are hurried and mediocre at best, and all that candy makes me have to work out even harder to be beach ready. So what would I rather be doing on this day besides putting on a red dress and getting overpriced flowers?  I am not sure yet, but I can tell you it won’t be sitting across from someone looking at his phone while I am looking at mine and wishing we were somewhere else. I want attention but I want it organically. The kind that pours out of one person and into the other because you can’t seem to give it or receive it enough. Did I get your attention yet? Good. Welcome to my world of being Glam & Sassy.

Breaking Up

Hello Glam & Sassy loves!  We have all been through it. The dreaded break up.  Whether you were the break up-er or the break up-ee, it is never easy at the time.  Luckily, we eventually get over it and it makes for a good story at parties.  My worst break up was the equivalent to the episode of Sex and the City when Berger breaks up with Carrie on a Post It note. However, instead of a post it, mine was via text. At 8am. Right before I was boarding a flight from CA to NJ. So not only was I devastated by the blindsided dumping, I also had to suffer in silence on a 5 1/2 hour flight as to not have my row mates think I was some crazy chick AND with no communication to the outside world.  I mean, if there is ever a time a girl needs to cry to her bff or get anti heartbreak advice from  mom, this was it. It was so awful at the time, but now, I laugh about how pathetic it was and here I am blogging about it!  Just as relationships reach their expiration date, so do some items in our closets.  Keep reading for a few looks that are ready to be kicked to the curb.

Gray Area:

In our closets, much like relationships, there shouldn’t be any unknowns.  If you are wondering if a particular top has seen better days, then it is probably time to retire it.  Also, if any formerly white tees or tanks are looking dull, please replace with a crisp new version.  Anything that has lost its luster just isn’t worth taking up valuable real estate in your closet. I love this poly peach tank from W by Worth styled with destructed denim and wedges. The fabric feels so amazing on my skin and the color is “Optic White” with a brightness that shines!

Sole Mates:

Sometimes in life, no matter hard you try to repair something, after a while you realize you just have to bid it adieu. The same goes for shoes. If heels are worn down or soles are scuffed beyond their red recognition, to the goodwill they must go. I know it is difficult when you are so attached and they are oh so comfortable, but comfort isn’t reason enough to keep something in your life.  And who knows, your old footwear faves may find a new owner that is happy with them.  See, you did something good for someone else and now you have an excuse to bring home the ones you have been eying up for weeks now. My all time favorite shoe is the YSL Tribute .  They are perfect with everything from denim to dresses, desk to dancing. As every mate should be.

Use it or Lose It:

The rule of thumb is if you haven’t worn something in a year, the chances that you ever will are slim. The reasoning behind this is, if it made you happy, you would’ve enjoyed showing it off by now. Life is too short to waste time thumbing through your closet through undesirable clothes.  To avoid this in the future, purchase investment pieces…classically chic fashions that are made well and that you will be able to wear year after year.  Some basic must haves are a versatile blazer, an all occasion dress, and flirty top to style with your favorite jeans.  Stay tuned next week for my blog on those essential items. Breaking up is hard, but looking Glam & Sassy is the reward… and the best revenge.

Date Night

Whether single or married, date night is a must!  It gets you out of the routine of  waking up, going to work, going to the gym, going to bed.  It also gives us ladies a reason to trade in our business casual attire for something fun and flirty.  After all, this is date night! You want him to forget about everything but you and you want to forget everything but you too! From dinner and a movie to dancing till dawn, embrace the party girl inside, and make it a night so good,  you’ll want to do it again and again. However, before you make your reservation on Open Table, let’s go through a list of Date Night must haves!

romper

The Look-Part 1:

Choose a dress or this season’s on trend romper that shows a little more skin or a top that that would never ever be appropriate for a business affair. Heels are a non-negotiable. Find ones that are comfortable so you can call it a night when you are ready, not because your feet are! These YSL heels which you can find at Nordstrom are my fave and I swear I could run a marathon in them!

Saint Laurent 'Tribute' T-Strap Sandal

The Look-Part 2:

You take time doing your hair and makeup, and even more time choosing the perfect outfit, and all for one reason. You want your guy to see you then gasp and smile like it is the very first time he laid eyes on you. If the first time he saw you was on your Tinder profile, then rest assured the look you get when you approach him in person, is the look he had when he right swiped. Take a moment and take it all in, and know that he is doing the same.  Also, when it comes to “the look”, the one you give him is equally important…across the table, during a giggle, on the dance floor etc. Confidence is the key to sexiness. Master your look, make it your own, and you will be enjoying many date nights to come.

Make it Last:

If everything goes according to plan, date night will involve activities that can ruin your perfect pout. I am referring to eating, sipping on your fave beverage (champagne of course!), and if all goes well, a kiss or two! I used to reapply lip gloss, on average, 28 times a night. I prefer the feel of gloss to its drier lipstick counterpart but it has zero staying power.  This is not a good quality for your date, OR your lip gloss! Recently while playing around at the Chanel counter in Nordstrom,  I was introduced to their long lasting lip color that feels like a gloss! For a mere $36, I have officially kicked my gloss habit! Way cheaper than gloss rehab!

I was bubbling with excitement when I was asked to style the cast of the new reality show, The Romance! Basically, I just had to put together outfits for the ladies to wear on their dates with their possible future love interest. Should be easy, right? Well, any girl who has had to find the perfect outfit for an exciting first date knows that usually entails trying on lots of possible options, looking in the mirror to check out all angles, and an inevitable pile of dresses, shoes, and accessories strewn about in the process. But, as any Glam & Sassy girl does, I was up for the challenge and nailed it! The ladies loved their Glam & Sassy dresses, jewelry and handbags and they all looked absolutely gorgeous! When we look good, we feel even better, and it is all about walking into a room with lots of sparkle…which is not only stacked on our wrists and necklines, but on the inside as well! These cast members definitely had both! Check out the pics of some of the cast at our shoot on Saturday and remember to always wear YOUR best sparkle!
