  • Easter Is Calling 2014

    Posted Apr 7 // Amy Roark

It is that time of year again where my stylist nature perks up.....Easter family picture time!  While Easter in general for us is a very happy FAMILY holiday, the pictures are all about the kids. I relinquished sitting on the Easter bunny's lap many years ago for which I am certain he is very grateful ;)

While window shopping last weekend @ Woodland Hills Mall,  I discovered another super cute (wallet friendly) children's store at Woodland Hills Mall. CRAZY 8! The size range is from baby to youth 14. I had my two youngest [kiddos] ensembles picked out from there but alas they were out of the size for my "tweening" daughter :(  We will have to go to a "young ladies" size range store.

Here is what I selected for my son @ Crazy 8 . The girls clothing (me included) from JCPenney . And shoes from Macy's .

Don't these outfits compliment each other well ??? My son is wearing some khaki shorts he already owns & unfortunately my husband will be out of town for Easter otherwise he would be coordinating too! But we as a family will look great at church..hehe.

Don't forget to stop by & get the kids picture taken with Easter Bunny located on the lower level in the center of the Mall by the kids play area. Also, JCPenney Portrait Studio takes family photos as well.

  • Designer Dress Spotlight: Adrianna Papell, BCBG Max Azria, & Calvin Klein

    Posted Mar 17 // Amy Roark

So here we are. Just around the corner from Spring & I am already thinking about when I can wear a short sleeve again. Then, I am quickly reminded that next week is Spring Break which means Easter is just a mere 5 weeks away, then I have a wedding to go to in May, and, well....I need to go dress shopping!!

Honestly, I could always go dress shopping. I love dresses, all shapes and styles. However, this blog I am focusing on 3 dress Designers that I really enjoy wearing & that will stay in fashion for more than a season. I have plenty of other favorites, but these are a few that have some really great short sleeve, knee length selections for Spring 2014.

These Designers are in no particular order & are in the price range of $100 - $300. I am focusing on casual dressy / semi formal along the lines of Easter, baby shower, wedding, etc...

First is Adrianna Papell. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Adrianna Papell. The brand focuses on affordable luxury for "real women". I know when I buy one of these dresses it is going to have personality & a great fit. Wearing it makes me fell sophisticated, alluring, & chic. There are many fabrications to choose from. Always used in inventive ways. Lace is one of the favorites. Take a look for yourself.

Next is BCBG Max Azria. This line is named for the French phrase "bon chic, bon genre," a Parisian slang meaning "good style, good attitude". And it is true to it's word. BCBG is a great "younger" looking line that stills holds it's own in the Missy market. They offer affordable dresses that don't look cheap. Here are a few of my favorites.

Last but not least, Calvin Klein. To me, Calvin Klein is a go to label. You can always find something for every occasion & it will become a staple in your wardrobe for years to come.Calvin Klein exemplifies modern, sophisticated style while using minimal aesthetic. And it is always at a price point most can afford. Here are several looks for this Spring. I have to tell you the denim sleeveless in the upper middle will be in my closet before the weekend!  

Happy Shopping ya'll!  

Remember, you can find all these looks & more at Woodland Hills Mall.

 

Keepin' it easy, 

hugs,

Amy

  • Store Spotlight : White House Black Market

    Posted Feb 20 // Amy Roark

https://cdn2.content.compendiumblog.com/uploads/user/d522869f-c9c5-469b-b327-d1f63d2daa5c/92dce127-7101-4ced-acab-88bcc3d5b03a/Image/9367c8a7c888e08a31032fe23a055f22/download__1_.jpg

Our Store Spotlight this month is White House Black Market. I can't help but notice their new marketing format & ultimately, they carry pretty much an outfit for all occasions.

If you haven't visited a WHBM store either because you felt a little intimated by the price point or thought color didn't exists there...well give it a try. You won't be disappointed.  My background is in fashion design & I promise you that when it comes down to it, you do get what you pay for.  In this case, quality craftsmanship, adaptable fabrications, & clothing that will last. I will be the first to tell you there are things I refuse to buy because I know how much (or little) it really cost to make. And if I can make it myself I do. But here is something most people don't think about when they do pay a little more for, let us say, a white button front shirt. That white shirt is going to be made with a higher quality material. It is going to have a better set of buttons. It will have a nicer finished seam. And probably some nice style detail or stitch-work. It will be a shirt you will wear until it falls apart.

If you are looking for an item that will last several seasons this is a fabulous place to shop. Here are a few of their timeless dresses that can easily go from day to night.

They also have a fabulous denim collection. I love how they are easily dressed up or down by adding a different jacket or jewelry. Notice not everything is black or white.

Last but not least, White House Black Market is THE place to shop if you are looking for the perfect black pant. Shown below is one of my favorites. 

!!They are having a FABULOUS sale event right now!!

Finally, be sure to enter their latest sweepstakes for a chance to win a shopping spree & trip to Paris!!

 

You can find all of these looks and more at White House Black Market in Woodland Hills Mall.

 

Keepin' it easy,

It will be a shirt you will wear until it falls apart.&nbsp;</p> <p> <img alt="https://cdn2.content.compendiumblog.com/uploads/user/d522869f-c9c5-469b-b327-d1f63d2daa5c/92dce127-7101-4ced-acab-88bcc3d5b03a/Image/a075b356b53ec809ea8f7b36e918027f/white_shirt_with_border_w640.jpeg" src="http://cdn2.content.compendiumblog.com/uploads/user/d522869f-c9c5-469b-b327-d1f63d2daa5c/92dce127-7101-4ced-acab-88bcc3d5b03a/Image/a075b356b53ec809ea8f7b36e918027f/white_shirt_with_border_w640.jpeg" style="width: 640px; height: 360px;" /></p> <p> ***</p> <p> If you are looking for an item that will last several seasons this is a fabulous place to shop.

  • Making SCENTS out of Spring

    Posted Mar 28 // Amy Roark


The sun is hanging out a little longer. The air is slowly (especially in Oklahoma)  warming up. We are all ready to wear our flip-flops. But one of my most favorite things to do this time of year, when it isn't quite shorts & t-shirt weather is to smell like it is. That means shopping for new springtime scents. Perfumes, body lotions, & smelly good hair mists. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You heard me right! Victoria's Secret PINK line has an amazing new "Spring Break Beach Hair Wave Spray". And it does exactly that. You spray a little on your hair. A couple of scrunches & you not only look like you were surfing the waves, your hair will smell as sweet at the tropical flowers surrounding the ocean. 

 

                             

 

"Make waves with this scented spray that gives your hair body and texture—like you just got back from the beach. Weightless spray gives hair an instantly beachy boost and leaves a subtle scent of Caribbean mango and violet."   There are five scents to choose from. $18 or 2/$25. 

 

 

 

They also have a new version of their award-winning fragrance line"Bombshell" - Bombshell In Bloom

 

"Bombshells in Bloom is the fresh new version of our award-winning fragrance with crisp, floral notes that are bound to keep you sexy today, sexy tomorrow and sexy forever. This floral fragrance wraps the skin in a flirty blend of pink freesia, red apple and water lily." You can choose from perfume,  body lotion, travel mister, even a fragrance ring! Plus many other options. Price range $15 - $68.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

   

 

 

Whoa!!  Is an amazing new fragrance from Aerie. It is a great combination of sweet lily, peony blossom, soft & creamy rosewood & sandalwood. It brings a light feminine aroma as you walk on by. $40

  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~   Be surrounded by Love throughout the day by slipping this portable, aromatic concentrate—with rollerball applicator—into your pocket or purse. Containing Jasmine - Esteemed in Asia, where its blossoms symbolize love or respect, this uplifting floral infuses our Aveda LoveTM Pure-FumeTM family.    

 

Recapturing lost worlds of luxury and mystery in a rich yet fresh attar of soothing Bulgarian rose, refreshing neroli and sensuous sandalwood. Containing Neroli -Produced from the blossoms of the bitter orange tree, the ancient Egyptians embedded Neroli—an "aphrodisiac"—in wax cones worn on the heads of temple dancers. As the cones melted in the heat of the dance, the air filled with revitalizing aroma. 

 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Remember, you can find all these fragrances & more at Woodland Hills Mall.  Don't just stick to the main department stores to find  a fragrances to choose from. Try some of the specialty shops. Their custom scents will really spark your fancy!

Try Sephora, Bath & Body Works, Frederick's Of Hollywood, & many more. 

 

Keepin' it easy, 

hugs,

Amy

  • Romancing the Stone - Statement Necklaces

    Posted Mar 3 // Amy Roark

What statement are you making? 

If you haven't noticed the onset of larger than life necklaces, you have been living in a box. Simply stated, I LOVE them. They do not have to be expensive or have lots of bling. They just need to make a "statement" over the rest of your ensemble. For instance, this beauty pictured above is from Brighton. It is $78 & will set off just about any outfit. It is casual enough for the office but has enough sparkle to make its way into evening. 

**********

Not all statement necklaces have an actual name per say, however, these pictured above are the ever popular "bubble" necklace. I just love this style. I love its whimsical appeal & how it even looks great over prints.  You can find this style (and more) at JcPenney, & Icing

**********

The cool thing about the  "collar" necklaces shown above, is that you can actually wear it as a collar. There are many types but the distinguishing factor is that it sits on your neck as a collar would & will resemble the shape or appearance of a collar on a shirt.  Charlotte Russe, & Cache' are a great place to find this style & many more. 

**********

So the "Bib" necklace pictured here is my MOST favorite. To me, it is as effective as wearing a scarf, just not as warm ;) These are probably the most popular & have the widest range is price. Also, you can find this style almost anywhere. Dillard's, & Forever 21, to name a few, are popping at the seams with variety. 

**********

Here is an up and coming trend following the statement necklaces. A necklace that looks like a mens necktie or bowtie. I think they are pretty cute. What do you think??

You can find all of these looks and more at White House Black Market in Woodland Hills Mall.

 

Keepin' it easy, 

hugs,

Amy

I love its whimsical appeal &amp; how it even looks great over prints. &nbsp;You can find this style (and more) at&nbsp;<a href="http://www.jcpenney.com/jewelry-watches/shop-departments/fashion-silver-jewelry-accessories/shop-fashion-jewelry/necklaces-pendants/statement-necklaces/_/N-1nox98Z1z13ywl/cat.jump?id=cat100260188&amp;deptId=dept20000020" style="font-family: 'Open Sans', sans-serif; line-height: 19px;" target="_blank">JcPenney</a>, &amp; <a href="http://www.icing.com/icing/us/the-goods/icing+commerce+root/cat1860026/icing-commerce-root/jewelry/necklaces/" target="_blank">Icing</a>.&nbsp;</p> <p>**********</p> <p><img alt="" src="http://cdn2.content.compendiumblog.com/uploads/user/d522869f-c9c5-469b-b327-d1f63d2daa5c/92dce127-7101-4ced-acab-88bcc3d5b03a/Image/b2e3466bc5b0f51592ee7900fffed4fa/collar_w640.jpeg" style="width: 640px; height: 148px;" /></p> <p>The cool thing about the &nbsp;&quot;collar&quot; necklaces shown above, is that you can actually wear it as a collar. There are many types but the distinguishing factor is that it sits on your neck as a collar would &amp; will resemble the shape or appearance of a collar on a shirt. &nbsp;<a href="http://www.charlotterusse.com/thumbnail/Jewelry-Watches/Statement-Pieces/pc/3045/2735.uts" style="text-align: center; font-family: 'Open Sans', sans-serif; line-height: 19px;" target="_blank">Charlotte Russe</a>, &amp;&nbsp;<a href="http://www.cache.com/accessories/jewelry/necklaces?page=all" target="_blank">Cache&#39;</a>&nbsp;are a great place to find this style &amp; many more.&nbsp;</p> <p>**********</p> <p><img alt="" src="http://cdn2.content.compendiumblog.com/uploads/user/d522869f-c9c5-469b-b327-d1f63d2daa5c/92dce127-7101-4ced-acab-88bcc3d5b03a/Image/8356343c2071d356f9b0f29c42760eeb/bib_w640.jpeg" style="width: 640px; height: 180px;" />So the &quot;Bib&quot; necklace pictured here is my MOST favorite. To me, it is as effective as wearing a scarf, just not as warm ;) These are probably the most popular &amp; have the widest range is price. Also, you can find this style almost anywhere. <a href="http://www.dillards.com/shop/Accessories/_/N-lfxvZ1jl/Ns-p_best_sellers_rank/Ntk-all/Ntt-statement+necklace/Nty-1?storeId=301&amp;savedSearchLoginURL=&amp;bn=&amp;commandNameURL=&amp;LandingPage=Landing+Page&amp;langId=-1&amp;catalogId=301&amp;ddkey=http:SearchResultList" target="_blank">Dillard&#39;s</a>, &amp;&nbsp;<a href="http://www.forever21.com/product/Category.aspx?br=F21&amp;category=acc_necklace_statement" style="font-family: 'Open Sans', sans-serif; line-height: 19px;" target="_blank">Forever 21</a>, to name a few, are popping at the seams with variety.&nbsp;</p> <p>**********</p> <p>Here is an up and coming trend following the statement necklaces.

  • Sweat & Sexy REALLY do make a great couple!

    Posted Apr 7 // Amy Roark

I don't know about you but warmer temp's & sunshine, mixed with my tulips blooming means it is time to hit the road....Running that is.  And every year I dig through my "gym" drawer for something cute to help inspire my desire to exercise :) Those of you who run, or my cross-fit friends know not all sport bras are created equal. Bouncing is NOT a girls friend when it comes to hitting the pavement. So although a sport bra may be super cute, it may also be super painful. I have fallen victim to this & now those sport bras are only worn on yard work days. How boring & wasteful right???  Who wants to wear a cute sport bra raking leaves or pulling leaves. Well, now that I have actually written those words on the page, a cute sport bra during those tasks is the only fun to be had!

Off to Woodland Hills Mall to help my inspiration come to life!  I tell you Spring 2014 has got to be my most favorite activewear season.  There are countless super cute & supportive sport bras out there!  Among capris, shorts, & leggings!  

OMGoodness, have any of you walked into Victoria's Secret lately!!!  If you haven't please take a look at this!

Was I right or what!  Not only do I want to have ALL of these garments, I am more inspired to look like the models in them. Sexy Sport is right. There were way too many styles & color combinations to post. Yea, that's right this is not all of their selection. VS designers have done a fabulous job coming up with cute & comfortable tank tops & t-shirts that aren't the humdrum crew neck or v-neck we are used to. I am not a small woman so I try to avoid allowing anyone else to see what my dear Lord gave me but the flowy, loose fitting, stylish tops are going to break my bank when I buy them all up. No more husbands old t-shirts on this bod! I really am going to have to hide my debit card!

I could totally end this blog with VS alone, but wait, there is more! (Insert echo of infomercial, "but wait,there's more!") 

Speaking of SuperModel....Heidi Klum has joined forces with New Balance creating an activewear line at Lady Foot Locker. She brings some fashion to a more "sporty" appeal at LFL. I love the back detailing on the sport bras & tops. Also, LFL has some very sport specific garments. Come in & check them out!

Finish Line has some great options for more "cup" specific sport bras. And some really cute bright colors.

As you can see, there is plenty to choose from. These pictures are just the tip of the iceberg.  Take advantage of Spring sales & get your run on!!  

Keepin' it easy, 

hugs,

Amy
