Something to Marvel About…

May 19th, 2015 Posted in curiosities, Fashion, Special Projects, Style & Fashion | No Comments »

Made especially for sci-fi fiction gal fans…  Finally wears which are feminine and cute, if that’s what you’ve been looking for!  With all the hype surrounding the recent The Avengers: Age of Ultron movie, I wanted to attend the viewing in style :)!

I’m not the biggest Black Widow fan so I suggested to Her Universe that a Maria Hill Shield jacket also be made.  I did receive some enthusiastic responses to this request but we’ll see what will come of it.  I’d definitely be the first in line for one!  This company also stocks Star Wars, Dr. Who, Transformers, Star Trek, and Nerdist products.

Here are two of my Star Trek favorites!

Talbots: My New Found Treasure

December 18th, 2012 Posted in accessories, Fashion | No Comments »

I’ve known about Talbots for years.  I never gave them a real chance when I was in my early 20s (currently in my 30s).  Even back then they carried basics and American classics; however, I believed they were for the more mature woman (nothing wrong with this but it didn’t appeal to me at the time).  Like JCrew and Banana Republic, over the years they have really revamped their designs in certain ways, so much it seems that I can sense a more inclusionary younger vibe.

My sister-in-law placed a teal Talbots tote two years ago on her wishlist which kind of planted a seed in my mind to look them up online.  Shortly after, my husband received a catalog from them and I browsed through it, falling madly in love with a fitted button down denim shirt (something I’ve always wanted to own).  I was quickly impressed by their quality, cut, and sizing (which fit me like a glove more than any other brand whether I was looking for a top, sweater, blazer, or pants).  As for sizing, they have something for everyone unlike other brands which cater to select populations.  My husband usually hates Christmas shopping especially at the mall, so I encouraged him to give our nearby Talbots a try.  Also, their customer service whether in-store or over-the-phone is impeccable.  Have you ever seen the way they package things too?  Always with great care and professionalism.  They get an A+++ from me!  I just bought their Gallery Cable Flyaway Cardi in frost grey heather and had to also order one in black!  Like any other girl who knows what’s good for her, anything which flatters your figure (picture you smiling at yourself in front of the mirror) is priceless =).  Even better, both my sweaters were purchased at drumroll please…  40% off (it’s a steal)!  I love my new cardis because they are beautifully made, thick, and soft to the touch.  I’m planning to wear this to my upcoming Christmas gatherings with a festive Anthro top and dressier Talbot jeans (the Curvy Fit black rinse trouser jeans to be precise).  I know you might find it odd that I mentioned Anthropologie and Talbots in the same sentence but they both have an important role to play in my closet.  Anthro offers whimsical retro silhouettes while Talbots offers sophisticated refined beauty.  That to me, when paired correctly creates a good fashion balance.

Give Talbots a chance; I guarantee you’ll want to become a new convert =)!  For those who are long time Talbot lovers…  I know you’re out there so comment below and tell me about your cherished finds ;)!

P.S. I’m nuts for their handbags, pearl necklaces, and shoes too!  Below are several of my favorites from this season…

Robert Rodriguez at Ruelala

I saw some great clothing by RR at a recent Ruelala sale. My two faves were the crossback tank and double wrap tank, both in black. Really pretty and go great with both dress pants or jeans.

I may just have to pay special attention to her fashion trends. These tops are so beautifully feminine- they are so for me! No closet could be complete without RT…

Porridge Comfort Clothing

Porridge is sometimes carried by Anthropologie. This is how I became aware of the label. Their clothing is great for lounging around on lazy weekends curled up with your fave book or for traveling. Hands down, really comfy!

A really great company which features “tie-dye-like” designs and soft textiles. Another brand producing comfy clothing. The type you would want to lounge in on weekends.
