Stylish Ways To Wear Leggings In Winter

Written by Nicole Garrity on . Posted in Fashion, How To, Life, Shopping in Buffalo, Uncategorized

I am very guilty of wearing leggings all winter long, they are just so comfortable I can’t help it! Not only are they comfortable, but you can dress them up or down for whatever your plans are for the day. From a night out with the girls, grocery shopping, to just lounging around on the couch, they are perfect to wear basically anywhere. Below I am going to share with you a few stylish ways to wear leggings for the winter time. Happy reading, xoxo.

 

Layers, layers, layers. During the winter, leggings are the perfect fashion staple to wear with a ton of layers. Wear a button up but pull a cozy sweater on over to keep you warm during the cold days. Or take a long sleeved shirt and layer it with a cardigan for another stylish winter look! Accessorize with a scarf to add some more layers to the look!

Patterned Leggings. From animal print, Aztec, floral or just textured leggings, you can always find a new outfit with patterned leggings! My personal favorite are the Aztec with a big comfortable sweater and knee high boots. For extra warmth, if you have a pair of ripped jeans, wear patterned leggings underneath for a extra trendy look.

Over Sized Sweaters. My personal favorite! Nothing keeps your quite as warm an a large cotton or knitted sweater. Seriously, if you find something warmer please let me know, because I am convinced they are the greatest invention ever. From going out shopping or just lounging around the house with your girl friends, you will be so comfortable! Once you start buying over sized sweaters, they will become your obsession like they are for me.

Beware Of Counterfeits!!

Written by Nicole Garrity on . Posted in Fashion, How To, Life, Shopping in Buffalo, Uncategorized

Working at a dress boutique I have seen my fair share of customers who fall for the online dress boutique scam. They will fall in love with a dress they find online (and the price is so unbelievably cheap naturally) only to realize they have fallen victim to a worldwide scam, counterfeit websites. While online shopping can be both a cheaper and faster way to shop, it can also be very dangerous because it is difficult to know if the site is counterfeit or not. If you are going to be spending good money on a dress, shop at local dress shops to ensure you aren’t going to be scammed and left without a dress and out several hundred dollars. There are so many scamming websites out there that will take your money and you will never receive your dress, therefore forcing you to go out and purchase a new one from the store. There are counterfeit websites for prom dresses, wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses and cocktail dresses. Below is a list of confirmed counterfeit websites who copyrights pictures to post on their sites, be safe and buy dresses from legit companies and not ones that will scam you! TT New York is an authorized retail location who work closely with each designer who houses their designs in our store. Be a smart shopper and remember, a deal that looks too good to be true probably is. xoxo

10 Tips To Get Rid Of Old Clothes

Written by Nicole Garrity on . Posted in Fashion, How To, Life, Shopping in Buffalo, Uncategorized

One of my worst habits is that I just don’t know when to let go of clothing. I probably still have shirts with tags on them that I will probably never wear… but I can’t get rid of them!! With a little fall cleaning motivation, I decided to clean out my closet and get out with the old and in with the new. I am going to share with you my process on how I determined what I should get rid of and what I decided to keep. You will feel so much better once your closet is cleaned and organized!! Xoxo

b5bd281ffd4ab78340a6bc90dfb1b6fd

  1. It’s truly stained. The fact is that with a little effort, most stains can be removed whether it’s from a professional or clever tricks you may know. However, there are things that can’t be fully removed like ink stains, bleach, dried paint, oil stains and many more. Sometimes you need to just suck it up and say goodbye to that piece of clothing.
  2. It smells old. Certain materials hold onto smells longer than others no matter how many times you wash it. While there are ways to remove musty odors from fabrics, there’s no guarantee all scents will disappear. If your clothing smells of must, food, or body odor even after you’ve washed it, it’s time to throw it out!
  3. It’s damaged beyond repair. While a seamstress can replace a zipper, a button, or even the lining of a coat, they can not fully fix a gaping tear on the side of your silk blouse.
  4. You wouldn’t buy it right this second. When it comes to getting rid of clothes, the true test isn’t whether you’ve worn an item in a year, but rather if you were out shopping right this second, would you buy it? If the answer is no, out it goes- even if it is only a month old.
  5. It doesn’t fit. Sometimes I hang onto clothes that are too tight in hopes that maybe one day I will fit back into them.  Realistically that piece of clothing will probably hang in my closet forever. Sure every woman likes to keep a pair of their favorite jeans that are too small as motivation, but if you have multiple clothes that don’t fit….get rid of them and make room for items that do fit!!
  6. It doesn’t convey the message you want it to. We all use fashion as a means of sending unspoken messages about who we are, or at least who we want to be. Often times that message changes as we mature. Certain pieces simply no longer remain relevant to the image we want to portray and that’s okay! Sometimes it is good to let go of old clothing to buy more appropriate ones.
  7. You associate it with bad memories. If you have clothing that reminds you of a terrible night out with your friends, or you have your ex’s clothing…. it is time to throw those things in the trash! Purging your closet of bad memories can be powerful, and it’ll force you to buy new things you really love!
  8. It’s simply not trending anymore. We’ve all bought super-trendy items that simply don’t stand the test of time, like that pair of chunky sneaker wedges you swore you’d wear every day. If you’re over them and know you won’t reach for them, its time to let them go.
  9. You keep trying it on but never actually wear it. You know those pieces that you always seem to try on at home, but never seem to grab when you’re actually getting dressed? Odds are, you’ll never wear them outside your bedroom, so why are you still hanging onto them? Better to use the space in your closet for things you’ll actually reach for regularly.
  10. It’s totally stretched out. One way to not look chic and pulled-together? Wear clothing that is stretched out. Sure, the laundry can help certain pieces retain their shape, but when you wear items often, they do stretch.

My Favorite Fall Looks

Written by Nicole Garrity on . Posted in Fashion, Uncategorized

Although I love summer and the warmth, when it comes to fashion my favorite season is hands down fall! There is nothing more comfortable than big cozy sweaters and boots, and not to mention you can accessorize like crazy! Fall clothing is just so fun to mix and match with!  Scroll down and I am going to share with you some of my favorite fall fashion looks, I hope you enjoy! Xoxo


 

Dresses & Skirts: There is no need to put away all your summer clothing just yet. In fall you can still get away with wearing skirts or dresses! Instead of a tank top or crop top for the skirt, pair it with a sweater! If the temperatures are a little on the low side, slip on some black tights and booties or knee high boots to keep the look fun and flirty.

4effae8d5820b551ef09c736705732e92a69812df6bcf0cb4c78db56ee9370c373dcbafc090caf322a3a329f5d66b5c836d0e1885958aeca9d67f629ba343ba4


Layering: Once we are in the heart of fall, sometimes just a plain sweater won’t be enough to keep me warm. If your going out and don’t feel like carrying around a bulky jacket, layer a sweater over a button up to keep warm! I can make so many different looks by styling different layers! From blazers, jackets, vests, button ups, over sized sweaters to cardigans… just layer and go!

1c6bdbf4357f6b3530a0259c832b854f2d6eb2a00b4853253bccb9dc5817759b3f68af0bc6b0fc799dcc04044737c05ae3d11ef997265894a024be974b46511f


Combat boots: I AM OBSESSED! First off, I just love boots in general, but combat boots are my absolute favorite. One, you can wear them year round. Two, they are so comfortable that you can walk around in them for hours. And lastly, they are adorable! Don’t believe me? Buy a pair and trust me, they will be your new favorite shoes.

Leg warmers: Again I say, I love boots and accessorizing them are fun! Going for a walk through Ellicotville for Octoberfest and you wanna stay extra warm? Throw on some leg warmers under your boots to keep your feet and legs warm! And hello.. they are so trendy!

9d8b714e8663e6ec9a6c6262f6e8714741d14f20c958c5e856c2b18d06b2f2dcc08037efb35190cae4ce8852b3a647bc675b6e6f586c5c1e3cd7bf83c5f872ec

 

 

My Favorite Summer Nail Polish Colors

Written by Nicole Garrity on . Posted in Fashion, How To, Life, Uncategorized

If you are like me and always need to have your nails painted, then you understand when I say summer is the time to stock up on the nail polish!! With the warmer weather, I have to have my toes painted for all my open toe shoes and I always match my toes and nails! Here are my favorite nail polish colors for the summer!! xoxo

10545091_10152594808676197_2117935464_n

 

 

Coral- Coral is hands down one of the most popular colors this summer. I love it because it darkens your tan and just screams summer time.  

Shimmery Pink- Pink is one of the most popular colors no matter the time of year. It is a soft and sweet color that doesn’t stand out but doesn’t leave your nails bare.

White- I always love my toes painted white because its a color that helps you look tanner and it also can be paired with everything! White is another color that you can basically wear year-round because you can rock it with any color or style of clothing.   

Deep Blue- Even though dark blue isn’t a bright color, it is still popular for summer. Royal’s and indigo’s really stand out next to a black article of clothing. If you wear matching colored jewelry, you can turn an outfit into a totally different look! 

Orchid- Light purple, or orchid, is a nice summer color if you’re looking to branch out from the traditional pinks and corals. This is another color I like to leave on my toes all year since it is subtle and light. 

Bright Red- To me, red is a color that always gives off that classy vibe. Wearing a little black dress out? Red nail polish, red lipstick and red heels pair with the dress with have heads turning your way! 

Nude- Nude is one of the most popular colors this summer and I LOVE IT. You look like you aren’t even wearing nail polish but the nude gives your nails a healthy and glossy look. Add some sparkles to the tip to create a every-day look that you don’t need to change for every outfit! 

10 Things Every Mother of the Bride Should Know

Written by Nicole Garrity on . Posted in Fashion, Life, Shopping in Buffalo, Uncategorized, Wedding

With summer in full force, weddings are happening everywhere!  Here are 10 things to remember on your daughter’s wedding day to keep the whole experience magical!   fc5d707bde998aad079e8512aee53b42 (1)

  1. This is your daughters day to shine. Not yours! That doesn’t mean you can’t look fabulous, but remember to just dress age appropriate. You are playing a crucial role on the day, but your daughter is the star. Even if you dislike certain details, keep it to yourself! Remember: compliments and smiles.
  2. It is inappropriate to wear white. Mothers of the bride, do not even think about wearing a color in/near/around the whites on your daughter’s special day. She is the princess in white and no one should be close to her wedding gown color on the day.
  3. The Bride and Groom are running the show. Some mothers tend to be a little controlling and/or overbearing but on the wedding day, mothers need to know who are in charge. The bride and groom are the gatekeepers of all final decisions leading up to the wedding and throughout the day. Unless you have been asked to run something, stay out of the way.
  4. Learn how to pick and choose your battles wisely. Some traditions are nearer and dearer to your heart than your daughters. So if there is something you must see or do on the wedding day, pick ONE that is a must. It will be seen with more importance and your daughter can’t say no to your one request, right? Just like the bride has to pick and choose her battles, so should you.
  5. Get to know the in-laws. This is your daughter’s new family and in this day and age, the mother of the groom may be just as involved as the bride’s mother (or would like to be) when it comes to planning the big day. Especially when budgets are getting split. Brides, make sure both mother’s feel included! How about a launch date for the ladies to discuss the wedding details?
  6. Be supportive, no matter what. Even if your daughter is turning into bridezilla (which they sometimes do), mothers need to stay poised, calm, and collected. It is your job to be the pillar of stability during this crazy time and your daughter will want someone who can both help them make the big decisions and keep their cool when things go crazy. We can’t promise it will be easy, but please try for the bride!
  7. Offer to help, but only what you are truly willing to do. You should only offer what you WANT and CAN do. If you have a full-time job, maybe volunteering to meet with florists mid-week is a bad idea. Maybe if you have a special talent in table decorations or paper goods, offer to lend a hand there. Don’t offer your help on items that you have no interest in! And certainly don’t fill your schedule with more than you can handle. We know you want to be involved, just do it wisely.
  8. Be open about the guest list. We know tradition states that mom and dad are hosting the party (i.e paying for it) and therefore, the guest list should be decided by them. Not anymore. For this generation, the bride and groom are normally the ones in control of the almighty guest list.
  9. Offer your wedding gown, but don’t force it. We know you may have been saving your wedding dress for your daughter, but styles and fashions have evolved. You should definitely make the offer, but please don’t be offended if the bride says no. Maybe offer the veil? Or perhaps a piece of the dress can be used, like the lace? Seamstresses and tailors can do wonders with old dresses. Be open-minded!
  10. Discuss wedding outfits with the mother of the groom. This may seem trivial, but having the mothers coordinate is a wonderful bonding experience. Plus, it is tradition to share your look for the wedding. Also, as the head of matrons, your look will set the tone for the wedding!

Quinceanera Dresses!!

Written by Nicole Garrity on . Posted in Fashion, Life, Shopping in Buffalo, Uncategorized

Quinceanera, or ”Sweet 15”, parties are a tradition in the Latin American culture.  They symbolizes a young girl becoming a woman, and a huge celebration is held in honor of her 15th birthday birthday. The parties are over the top and extravagant, and so is the attire!  The girl celebrating her Quinceanera gets to wear a lavish, full gown, vibrant in different colors and patterns. The possibilities are endless when it comes to the gowns. Though, it is very hard to find a shop that carries such outrageous gowns due to their size. Here at TT New York we have a wide selection of Quinceanera gowns!

 

 

Quinceanera dresses are very unique in their own way. Some of the gowns have separate pieces and you can wear the corset top apart from the skirt! Others have shorter skirts on top so you can transform the big poofy gown into a shorter cocktail style later on. The opportunities are endless when it comes to Quineanera gowns! If you want to look amazing on your special night, then make sure to stop into TT New York and check out our selection! xoxo

My Summer Fashion Obsessions

Written by Nicole Garrity on . Posted in Fashion, Life, Shopping in Buffalo, Uncategorized

Summer is quickly approaching (or maybe that’s what I keep telling myself).  The thing I love most about summer, the fashion. There is nothing better than being able to walk around in shorts or a nice cocktail dress for an entire day and not get cold. I am going to dedicate this blog to some of my favorite summer fashions and maybe inspire you to branch out your own summer style!

High Waisted Shorts: A trend that has just recently made a comeback and is sweeping the nation! You can practically find them in every single store, and everyone love them. I love tucking a comfortable sweater into mine with a trendy belt, that way you are comfortable and warm at the same time. You can find them in any color, pattern and material. Feel like having a craft day? Find an old pair of high-waisted Levi’s at a thrift shop and cut them into shorts. Bleach them or add studs onto the back to turn them into a completely new pair of shorts!

Maxi Skirts/Dresses: If you love wearing dresses and skirts then I recommend trying maxi skirts or dresses. They are the most comfortable things in the world and appropriate for any occasion. You can dress up a maxi dress and wear it to either work or even a wedding! Maxi skirts are the perfect summer outfit if you want to be comfortable and fashionable. Pattered maxi skirts are extremely popular and they can be matched with anything! Pair the skirt with a plain tank top and a gold/silver belt and you are set to go! Once you start buying maxi skirts/dresses, you won’t be able to stop.

Gladiator Sandals: Gladiator sandals have grown extremely popular over the past two summers and they are everywhere. From sandals to heels or wedges, you can find any type of shoe is the gladiator style. They are a fun trendy shoe that you can pair with a short plain cocktail dress to shorts and a fun top. They are not only super fashionable, but most of them are extremely comfortable! You can find pairs that go all the way up to your knee or ones that stop right at your ankle. Either way, they are a trend that I don’t see to be fading anytime soon.

Big Floppy Hats: No matter if your pool side getting a nice tan or if you are attending an outdoor event, hats are always a must have. My favorite are the big floppy ones because they complete an entire outfit! They are perfect for walking around the town or watching a show at the park, etc. Not to mention they are ideal if you are having a bad hair day! Match it with a simple dress for an elegant look, or just wear one to keep the sun out of your eyes while you’re spending the day on a boat! They come in so many different sizes, textures and colors that they are the perfect accessory to throw on last minute.

Bright Colored Accessories: When I am going to a black tie event, I love pairing my simple black dress with neon heels or a bright colored purse. Adding a pop of color to a full black outfit really pulls the entire look together. You aren’t just focusing on one specific item, you are looking at the outfit as a whole! Match the purse or shoes with a chunky necklace in the same color to really add more color. You can even add some color to an everyday outfit! I love throwing a bright colored necklace with my white blazer when I am in the office. There are endless possibilities and you can always mix and match!
