The Great White Debate

Tammy Hiveley - September 3, 2014

The great debate. Do you wear white after Labor Day?  Yea or Nay? Fashion experts have debated this topic for many years.  How did it begin?  A little google search told me that basically the high-class women started this rule.  Some say it was to distinguish ‘old money’ from ‘new money’; to set themselves apart.  The ‘old money’ made up silly fashion rules without telling the ‘new money’ …

Jungle Love

Tammy Hiveley - July 16, 2014

I feel the love.  Jungle love running through my veins. Speaking of running… I’ve been running here, there and everywhere~ as we all do these days.  But when you get invited to a pool party… you make time to go!  Warm sun, cold drinks, kids laughing and splashing around you… and friends.  What a lovely way to spend an afternoon. What do you wear to a pool …

Let other people chase the trends. I’m sticking with classic pairings like animal print and red. You can never go wrong there. Top it off with a cashmere cardi, and you’re good to go. Any year, any decade, it’s still going to be in style. This style doesn’t scream any one particular decade. It just says, “I’m stylish.” And that’s just how I like it. …

For Day 2 of my 7 Days/7 Ways White Denim Remix, I simply added a tank and a scarf. (see Day 1 here) (see previous remixes here) That way I can easily add a sweater …

Big Night Out

Cate Mezyk - August 21, 2013

This past Thursday I was thrilled to be able to host a party for Ann Taylor and Birchbox, to celebrate their August collaboration. When two amazing companies like that ask you to work with them, you don’t hesitate – you just say ‘yes!’ It was a great success and I’m so glad to have been a part of the festivities. It was fun to meet …

A Mixed Bag

Cate Mezyk - August 29, 2012

I don’t normally mix my prints. I’m a keep it simple kind of girl. But this skirt, with its simple chevron pattern, makes it oh so simple to do. In fact, in one of my first attempts at mixing it up, I was wearing the very same one (check it – and my list of tips for mixing prints – out here). An animal print …

Fashion Friday – Animal Prints

Cate Mezyk - May 6, 2011

A recent trip to the zoo brought out the animal in me, and I’m feeling inspired. Animal prints are one those things that never really go out of style, so bringing a few pieces into your wardrobe really can’t hurt. While this is not my usual look, I think it’s fun to bring out my inner feline every once in awhile. From my own closet… Betty …
