A Little More Precious

Lace up sweater

A few Sundays a month, I volunteer in our children’s area at church. The kids in my care range from 6-11 years old, and they’re tons of fun. I rolled into church the day after Sparkle ended and apparently my exhaustion was evident. A sweet little girl came up to me and took me by the hand. “Ohhhh,” she said. “You need a makeover.” Pursing …

Studies are Liars

Cate Mezyk - October 5, 2017
Cold shoulder comfy dress

Studies have been done time and time again over the years, proving that if you multi-task, you may be accomplishing many things but you’re not going to do any of them well. As I sat in my daughter’s room the other day, helping her to organize her closet while I put on my makeup I realized something. Those studies are liars. I can’t NOT multi-task. …

Hug It Out

Velvet babydoll tee

Yesterday, on our Fox 9 segment, Alix said something how fashion right now makes you want to give out hugs. That maybe peace has a chance, and fashion is where it starts. She was joking of course, but there might be something to it. Because everything in fashion right now is soft, silk, or shiny. The soft textures filling up our shelves and racks do …

Sweata Weatha

Oversized chenille sweater

It’s my favorite time of year – sweater weather (or, according to old school Saturday Night Live episodes, sweata weatha). The textures that are currently available for this year are unbelievably soft and cozy, including this awesome chenille number that’s a new favorite of mine. I threw it on with leggings and a pair of running shoes the other day for a casual day of …

Velvet floral dress

My son and I share an iCloud. He saved up to buy himself an iPod Touch (we matched funds), and he’s all set up and good to go on it. Davis is remarkably good at finding new little tricks for it – there are things that you can do on an iPhone and/or iPod that I never even realized were an option. There have been …

Velvet Teddy Bear

Boyfriend jeans and a velvet tee

Remember a few years back, when Ruben Studdard was all over your tv screen? After his American Idol win, he was a big deal. They called him the Velvet Teddy Bear. Well, now you can call me the Velvet Teddy Bear too. I might not have the 6’3″ frame or a Grammy nomination, but I do have this velvet tee. Close enough, right? Velvet is …

All The Feels

Chambray striped dress. crisp. clean. perfectly chic

It’s been a hard morning. I’ve been crying on and off for most of it. All the feels going on over here. Excitement. Nerves. Proud mom. Sadness. Gut wrenching aches. Heart palpitations. You name it – I think I’ve felt it today. A teary-eyed friend, walking my same path, took the words right out of my mouth as we hugged our babies goodbye. “It’s like …

Hat Tricks

Striped dress with crochet neckline

So, we have these hats that everybody seems to want. It’s taken us by surprise, but hey – we are happy to keep them coming. You want Minnesota patch hats? We’ll make them for you! Since I don’t sew, our strategy thus far has been that our shop employees cut out the patches, I iron them on, and then Tammy sews them on. The only …
