Work. We spend the majority of our lives putting in work. Whether it’s our careers, relationships or our families, it’s all work. Now I hate working. I’d rather stay in bed all day watching re-runs of “Empire” and eating chips. But I realize that I like nice things, (my shopping addiction is LEGENDARY) and bills must be paid. So I gotta go to work. I also need to work off those chips so I gotta put in work at the gym too. Life = work.
I know what you’re thinking: “Must Haves! Must Haves? Who are you to tell me what I MUST HAVE?” For the past few years I have been working with Midnight Velvet and speaking to you, our customers and friends, about fashion. It’s been a blast becoming “Marcellas Reynolds, your personal stylist.” It’s a role I cherish.
We’ve all heard the saying “Clothes make the man.” Well if that’s true, accessories make the woman extraordinary! In our current Make A Statement video, Midnight Velvet and I extol the virtues of piling on the luxe. How does any outfit become an incredible outfit? It’s the artful use of accessories. Think of your wardrobe as art. Each day is a brand new canvas. You begin by sketching the outline, so you pull out a blue suit. Now inspiration hits; “How about that vibrant print blouse?” Feeling happily inspired you grab red pumps!
Pants! Who doesn’t wear them? Pants are the cornerstone of everyone’s wardrobe. What is your go-to pair? Is it black trousers that elevate everything? Perhaps it’s jeans that you can now wear everywhere including the office? Or maybe it’s khakis that pair oh so well with bright colors? Spring 2016 Midnight Velvet and I encourage you to think outside of the box! Yes, we want you to crank the volume up and push the envelope! Take a look at the video to find out how.
Spring & Summer is not always about pastels. Sometimes it’s about the classic ease and chic of black & white. As I once stated in an earlier video for MV “Black and white is always right!” It sounds a little cheeky but it’s true! In our current catalog, I extol the virtues of black, white & red in a new video. I picked red because it’s a color that universally looks good on every woman! Red is probably the most evocative color! It’s sexy… Think red lipstick or lingerie. And few things communicate power or command attention like a bold red suit.
Few things are more classic and more evocative of elegance than lace. At once feminine and mysterious, it’s often thought of as delicate. From the purity of white lace on your wedding day, to the sexy wink of a red lace nighty, lace is the chicest chameleon. Lace is ultra feminine yet super strong. It’s a classic that begs for re-invention season after season. Lace can be sexy and demure depending upon the mood of the wearer. It’s a glance and a hidden secret when worn for the one you love.
It’s no coincidence that after the grayness of Winter comes the crush of color we call Spring. We crave it! Our eyes search for it. We long for the warmth of the sun’s yellow and golden rays. We’re starved for the lushness of green, in all it’s hues, as trees and grass come back to life around us. And who isn’t awed by the vibrance of Spring’s colorful blossoms?
