Hot Must Have Accessories For Summer 2017

Merry's Fashion Mirrored Cat Eye Sunglasses

Accessories are those finishing touches that take an outfit from just looking good to making you look really put together. You can even make the plainest of outfits look outstanding with the right accessories. That is why I wanted to share with you my top picks for summer accessories. Some of these I own and some of them are on my personal wishlist.

VK Accessories Thread Ball Dangle Earrings

Thread ball dangle earrings

These thread ball dangle earring from VK Accessories are available in six different colors including the black pair I am wearing. I love them, and I am considering ordering one of the other colors. Hello turquoise! This look is one of the hottest trends in earrings for this season.

Light Blue Ombre Tiered Thread Statement Layered Earrings

Another hot look for the summer are these ombre tiered thread earrings. They are available in seven color options, but I think this light blue color is especially eye catching. I know this is on my wishlist.

Layered Tassel Drop Statement Pendant Necklace

Don’t forget to pick up necklace to match those tiered earrings. The necklace is available in two color options. This particular color combo would work with two of the earring color options.

Mirrored Cat Eye Sunglasses

Merry's Fashion Mirrored Cat Eye Sunglasses

Mirrored sunglasses were definitely hot last year. This year take it the extra step and make it cat eye sunglasses like these from MyBruneiStore. They are available in nine color options, though some colors have a more mirrored effect than others. I have on the C04 BLUE.

Galaxy S5 Case 3D Cartoon Unicorn Soft Silicone Rubber Back Cover Skin for Samsung Galaxy S5

Soft Silicone Unicorn Phone Case

Some people might say a stylish phone case is the only phone accessory you need. And since unicorns are all the rage right now, they might be right with this phone case. My old phone case was wearing out, so I just got this one, and I think its super cute. The link above is to the one that fits my phone, a Samsung Galaxy S5. They are also available for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Samsung Galaxy Note 5, LG G Stylo/LG LS770/G4 Stylus/G4 Note, iPhone 5 / 5S Case, iPhone 6 Plus / 6s Plus, and iPhone 7. Depending on which phone you have there is also several color options available.

GUESS Flowers Necklace

Another top trend of the spring and summer is denim and white paired together. But what kind of accessories do you pair with that? Try this flower statement necklace from Guess. I don’t have this exact necklace, but I have something very similar that you will most likely see in a fashion post sometime soon.

Denim Dot Soft Headwrap

While we are talking denim and white accessories, why not try out this really cute headband. I love the vintage feel with the bow and the adorable heart print. This will definitely be on my list to buy soon.

 

Tell me in the comments below what’s on your must have list for this summer.

2016 Gift Guide For The Girls and Guys On Your List

Christmas gift guide

Christmas gift guide

 

I know I have been doing a lot of reviews of products I thought would make good gifts, and those posts will probably continue on into December. But I wanted to actually put together a gift guide. This will include some things I have reviewed and a lot of things I have not. I will be including some things that make great stocking stuffers as well as gifts. And almost everything on this list will be budget friendly. I thought this was important because I see so many people make these fantastic gift guides, and even though my husband and I certainly aren’t poor I am left thinking who has the money to give these items as gifts. Nothing in my list should be over $50, and most of them are significantly less than that.

I really wanted to do this post because I love to give gifts. It is my primary love language, if you are familiar with The Five Love Languages. I think people sometimes misunderstand this love language and think its about materialism, but its really about symbolism. Its not about the money spent, its showing that you took the time to get to know someone enough to know what they like. Its showing someone you really know who they are, and you care enough to pay attention. And since gift giving, and receiving is so important to me, I wanted to take the time to share some items that might make good gifts. Some items are even items I have already bought for people on my list. If it is a child or someone I know for sure doesn’t check my blog I will share those items. So lets get started.

For The People Who Always Need To Be Plugged In

 Five Port USB Smart Charger By FREEWISE


Polanfo 12000mAh Power Bank for Smartphones and Tablets

For The Selfie Queens


Leadpo Selfie Light Ring, 3-Level Brightness LED Clip On for All Smart Phones


OCYCLONE Anti-Gravity Phone case [Self Sticky case] Nano-suction Technology Hands-Free Selfie Shockproof Cover

 

For The Jewelry Feinds

eManco Statement Tassel Pendant Necklaces Handmade Wood Bead Bohemian Jewelry

For The Kids


DreamWorks Trolls Poppy Talkin’ Troll Plush Doll


LEGO Marvel Super Heroes – 76060 Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum

 

For The Kids At Heart


Emio Mix-Monsters Headphones Black Kitten


Rocksmith 2014 [Online Game Code]

For All My Fellow Mermaids And Unicorns


BOOBEI 18inch Double Colors Reversible Sequins Mermaid Pillow Cases 18″by18″


Alkemie & Artistry Mermaid Sparkles Cameo on .925 Silver Necklace


Unicorn Poop Soap : a magical, sparkly, sweet-smelling treat for the unicorn-lover in your life


Celtic Goblet with White Unicorn Head

For The Readers In Your Life


Fire Tablet, 7″ Display, Wi-Fi, 8 GB

And don’t forget the Kindle Unlimited.

 

So in the comments below let me know who is on your list, and would you buy one of my suggestions for them? Just remember when you are out buying your gift, its not about how much you spend its how much thought goes into the gift that really matters. So don’t put pressure on yourselves to spend so much. Keep things simple and from the heart.

It a Great Day For a White…….Dress

A few days ago I posted about the LBD (aka Little Black Dress). But as you know, summer is slowly creeping up on us, and sometimes its just too hot out for a black dress. Nothing is cooler or more chic looking than a white dress in the summertime. I love the way white looks. I often see so many white dresses, but honestly I own very little because I become a moving target for stains when I wear it.

Whether I actually buy any or not, I wanted to share some of white wish list. To go to the product page just click on the pictures.

Why Don’t They Make That In My Size?!!!

A constant for me, when walking through a department store, is I always see these cute clothes in the misses and juniors section. My first thought is always, “Why don’t they make that in my size. Even though things are starting to change, there are still lots of designers that haven’t got with the program yet. I am sure each of us have a list of dream designers we want to offer plus size apparel. I thought I would share a few of my top choices.

 

Betsy Johnson

Designer Betsy Johnson

Designer Betsy Johnson

My number one choice would have to be Betsy Johnson. I love her youthful whimsy and frilly feminine looks with a touch of edge. Known for her celebration of the exuberant, the embellished and the over the top, Betsey has been rocking the fashion industry with her unique and original designs since the 1960’s. That is about 50 years in the fashion design industry. Don’t you think for such a forward thinking designer, its time to get with the times and offer people of all sizes your fashions?

 

Here are some of my favorite pieces Betsy Johnson is offering:

 

DOTTED RUCHED PARTY DRESS by Betsy Johnson

DOTTED RUCHED PARTY DRESS by Betsy Johnson

 

LONG ILLUSION DRESS by Betsy Johnson

LONG ILLUSION DRESS by Betsy Johnson

 

Andrea Lieberman

Designer Andrea Lieberman

Designer Andrea Lieberman

The fashion designer behind A.L.C. She is known for her contemporary designs. Andrea Lieberman takes all of your closet essentials to the next level. I love all those basic pieces that have little details that make them spectacular standouts in your wardrobe. Its time to take your designs to the next level, and start offering to us curvy ladies.

 

Here are a few od my favorite pieces from the A.L.C. line:

 

'Hillseth' Maxi Dress by ALC

‘Hillseth’ Maxi Dress by ALC

 

'Hobart' Stripe Silk Top by A.L.C.

‘Hobart’ Stripe Silk Top by A.L.C.

 

Tracy Reese

Designer Tracy Reese

Designer Tracy Reese

Tracy Reese has two different lines, the eponymous line and plenty by Tracy Reese. Both lines are very different from each other, but the one thing they have in common is they are ultra feminine. Before starting her own lines she had worked with other designers like Perry Ellis. I love her use of color and print. And since most of her designs already lend themselves to the shape of a curvy woman, why isn’t she offering plus sizes?

 

Here are some of my favorite items she is currently offering:

 

Clean Frock in black and white by Tracy Reese

Clean Frock in black and white by Tracy Reese

 

Deconstructed Frock in plastic blue by Tracy Reese

Deconstructed Frock in plastic blue by Tracy Reese

 

Maybe if enough of us speak up and let these designers  know we want their designs in our sizes they will finally start listening. I want to know what you think about my favorite designers. Who is on the top of your list?

Spring trends I love!

Each season I see one or two trends that I love, but this spring/summer is full of things I am stuck on. Once warm weather hits I practically live in dresses. So I thought I would share a couple of my favorites in each trend. And I am hoping that at least one or two of these items end up in my closet.

 

Bright Bold Colors

 

I am all about color. I have never been one to have a closet full of neutrals. So the fact that this spring and summers fashions are filled with bright bold colors makes me so happy.

111652970_282

The Avenue’s Abstract Stripe Maxi Dress

I love this abstract print and the addition of the bold colors. You can find it at the Avenue in sizes 14W – 32W.

 

sl096_pinka_l

Simply Be’s Rippled Textured T Shirt Dress

 In one of my favorite colors, I absolutely love this t shirt dress. The design is simplistic enough to let the color be the statement. You can find it at Simply Be in sizes 8 to 28.

Soft Muted Colors

 

On the almost opposite end of the spectrum this spring is bringing soft muted colors as one of the trends.  While this isn’t my usual taste I have seen some absolutely gorgeous items that I would love to give a try. Unfortunately there isn’t as many choices in plus sizes as there are in misses, but the few choices we do have lovely.

 

Mod Cloth's White Haute Cocoa Dress

Mod Cloth’s White Haute Cocoa Dress

 I can’t help but love this ultra feminine dress. It makes me dream of days with the girls having tea at our favorite tea house. You can find it at Mod Cloth. It is currently available in sizes 2X – 4X.

Forever 21's Romantic Lace-Trimmed Dress

Forever 21’s Romantic Lace-Trimmed Dress

 Another super feminine dress, and this one won’t break the bank. I love the lace ruffle at the hem. Sometimes it just the small details that make an item. You can find it at Forever 21 in sizes XL – 3X.

Black & White Contrast

 

It has been in style for the last couple of years. And in my opinion the selection and print choices are just getting better and better. I have to add at least one more piece to my wardrobe.

 

City Chic's Lace-Up Stripe Sleeveless Dress

City Chic’s Lace-Up Stripe Sleeveless Dress

This is probably one of the most unique pieces I have seen in a black and white print. I love the solid at the waist, and the way its made to look like it almost fades into the stripes. You can find this City Chic dress at Nordstrom in sizes 14W – 24W

So what do you think of my picks for spring and summer’s trends? Did I miss your favorite? I want to hear from you.
