Hello Glam & Sassy loves! We are embarking on that season where everything is in bloom. It is refreshing to wake up to birds chirping and the sun shining and my summer body is almost in full effect. Also in full effect is the bridal season. I recently had the opportunity to attend the grand opening of a very posh bridal boutique in La Jolla, California, Online Consign Couture. Maryanne Sefton, President , had a dream to bring joy and happiness to each bride by offering affordable prices on lovingly worn designer dresses, and it shows! When I entered the beautiful home turned boutique, I was greeted by the fragrance of fresh florals and the eye candy of gorgeous gowns. It made even this Glam & Sassy girl for life, whom I am devoted to, in sickness and in health, feel as if the words “I do” were about to roll off my tongue and out of my parted lips while my eyes gazed at the couture filled room! A feeling this good is as exhilarating as an unexpected chance meeting which I also experienced this time last year. See, it is definitely a “Spring Thing” so here are a few of the reasons I fell in love at first sight!
The show stopper for the night is actually the gown I want to feature because I don’t believe in saving the best for last. I am not into wasting anyone’s time, especially mine, so let’s get down to it. This breathtaking bridal is by Ines di Santo and as if the train wasn’t stunning enough, I was blown away when I saw it removed and then removed again until all that was left was a perfect party dress, and let’s be honest, the party is the best part! Not only do I love every aspect of this gown, but it eliminates the need to have a second wedding dress to change into AFTER the wedding. This three way is so exciting and I am ready to shout it from the rooftops that I am in love! Groom is tbd.
Second Time’s a Charm:
The other cool thing about Online Consign Couture is after the honeymoon phase is over, you can consign with them and know your precious dress is going to make someone very happy the second time around! They specialize in designer wedding gowns with an original retail of $4500 or greater and you can get more info at http://onlineconsigncouture.com/ . The nice thing about consigning is you could turn your wedding night bliss into a new Chanel bag faster than you can say “Vera Wang”.
Happily Ever After:
Whether you have always envisioned the wedding of your dreams mimicking a fairy tale, or would be ecstatic with a quickie chapel ceremony in Vegas, your wedding day will be captured forever in pictures. Be sure to have no regrets. Choose your dress wisely and you’ll look Glam & Sassy for years to come.

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.

Hello Glam & Sassy loves! Summer is, without a doubt, my favorite season. I live in southern California where we enjoy summer almost year round and I purposely landed on the coast when I moved here. Give me sun, give me water, give me seventy degrees every day and I am one happy camper…or “glamper” since these well manicured hands have never pitched a tent. The best thing about summer fashion is one piece dressing. It is easy and effortless the way it should be when something is right. Here are three of my must have outfits for this season that I love.
A Quick Romp:
The romper is the rebel sister of the sundress. It is bold, fun, flirty and sexy…sounds like the perfect catch to me. And let’s talk summer color, shall we? Nothing is better than a bright burst of hot pink! It just seems to scream “let’s party!”As I am writing this, I realized I just described myself, so I think I better buy this one from Adelyn Rae at my happy place, Nordstrom! It is so me and it is so perfect for an afternoon summer soirée !
Hands on Skin:
This wouldn’t be the sexiest season of the year if we didn’t bare our bodies. That’s the reason for hitting the gym on the reg so slip into a sundress that shows off those shoulders, girl. Lucky for us, Off the Shoulder is trending now and it is trending hard. I love this dee elle dress and would style it for both day and evening by changing up the heel and adding some sparkle. You will stay cool and look chic at the same time. This flowy fabric begs to be touched. The only thing softer than the material is your skin so expect to be caressed in this dress.
Dress a Mesh on the Floor:
What other time of year can you wear mesh as a dress besides summer? This style from W by Worth is actually two dresses in one. Here is your Glam & Sassy clothing budget lesson for the day…take the price and divide it by two and you’ll realize that you can’t afford NOT to get it! This shift dress can be worn alone or with the mesh overlay. The mesh dress can also be worn separately as a bathing suit cover up. I can picture it now and I hope you can too. It is as hot as summer itself…and very Glam & Sassy!
