10 Prom Night Essentials

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

  1. Lip Gloss or LipstickAfter you are finished with your makeup for prom, make sure to bring the lip gloss or lipstick that you used with you! After hours of talking and even dinner, you will absolutely need to reapply!
  2. Gum or Mints. I’m not saying that you have bad breath, but always be prepared just in case! You never know what you’ll end up eating or drinking throughout the night, but you’ll be prepared god forbid!
  3. Safety pins or Double Sided Tape. Malfunctions happen all the time, so it is just better to be safer than sorry! You may not end up needing them, but a fellow girlfriend may! Safety pins are essential in case a zipper or strap breaks! Double sided tap is crucial if you have a plunging neckline!
  4. Bobby Pins, Mini Hairspray and Hair Ties. If you have your hair in an up do, make sure you bring spare bobby pins and hairspray! Your hair will only hold through so many dances, so make sure you can fix it when it starts to fall apart.
  5. Compact Mirror and Concealer. We all sweat, so make sure you have concealer to help reapply your makeup if you start to sweat it off.
  6. Mini Nail File. Just in case your manicure doesn’t hold up!
  7. iPhone or Cell Phone. You have to make sure to take tons of pictures during this unforgettable night! Bring a mini charger too just in case! Capture all of the memories that you can!
  8. Mini Perfume and Mini Deodorant. You can never be too over prepared! I love bringing roll on perfume because they take up no space and you can always reapply easily! Get yourself a mini stick of deodorant too, you never know if you’ll work up a sweat dancing the night away!
  9. Band aids. Accidents happen, so just be prepared! It could be something as simple as a hangnail or maybe someone steps on your toe, at least you’ll have a band aid ready to go! No one wants to bleed on their dress!
  10. Blotting Papers. I swear by Neutrogena Shine- Control Blotting Sheets. Just take one of the sheets and blot on your forehead, down your nose, and along you cheeks to collect all the oil on your face!

Floral Rompers: My Summer Obsession!

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

One of my favorite obsessions for summer is floral rompers! I can easily wear one to a backyard barbecue, a formal dinner, or a night out on the town with my girls! They are versatile enough for me to wear them during the day or at night. I own a couple different styles but I really like the halter neckline ones, they are so comfortable! You can pair them with a pair of sandals, wedges or even booties depending on your own personal style. I highly recommend purchasing a couple to spice up your summer wardrobe!

 

Tips to Help You Say “YES” to Your Prom Dress!

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

Prom is only a few weeks away and now you are down to crunch time on finding your perfect dress! Dress shopping shouldn’t be stressful and you can make the experience more enjoyable with these helpful tips I’ve come up with! Remember that there is the perfect dress out there for everyone, so don’t feel like you have to settle! Don’t lose hope or get stressed out, stay determined and you will find your dream dress! Happy prom shopping fashionistas, xoxo.

First, have a game plan! Map out the shops you plan on visiting that day, don’t just wing it. You might get lucky and find your dream dress at the first stop, but if not, have a backup plan.

Second, bring someone you trust! I cannot go shopping without my best friend because I know she will always be honest. It doesn’t matter who your shopping buddy is, it is always just nice to have someone with you. So grab your best friend, mother, grandparent, or sibling and have a fun day of shopping!

Third, don’t make it complicated! If something isn’t fitting properly then maybe it isn’t meant to be. If your prom is quickly approaching and don’t have time to get alterations done you’ll have to look for a dress that fits your body well. Make sure you can eat, dance and enjoy your prom night without having to worry about your dress malfunctioning!

Score Designer Prom Dress Look A-likes for Less!!

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

One of the things I love about working in fashion is seeing all the gorgeous designs and styles each prom season. This year has been one of my favorites so far because the designers focused on both simple and extravagant styles. Two of the designers that I am obsessing over this year is Sherri Hill and Jovani but they do cost a pretty penny! TT New York carries a line called Clarisse that sells styles similar to Sherri Hill and Jovani at a much more affordable price! (Not to mention Clarisse is sold exclusively at TT New York so you can’t find then anywhere else in WNY!) Through all of my research I have come across a few styles that are almost duplicate to what we carry in stock! I listed a few of them below as just an example to show you the similarities!

The Perfect Year-Round Nail Polish Color

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

Recently I had a very difficult time finding a nail polish color that I could wear no matter the time of year. While switching up colors is fun, I enjoy having my nail match any outfit. (If my nails are bright red I am going to try to keep my outfits coordinated with red. I just can’t wear a royal blue shirt with red nails!) So I decided to try and find a color that will match everything! After hunting for quite some time, I finally found what I’ve been looking for from the Sally Hansen collection. Sally Hansen has a huge selection of nude and neutral tone polishes that are the perfect fit for any season! I have been wearing the “Truffle Shuffle 150” color for the past few weeks and I have to say, I am obsessed. I didn’t want a color too close to my flesh tone, so the Truffle Shuffle is slightly darker but still simple. I got the gel and also a bottle of Sally Hansen gel top coat and the polish lasts for weeks! You can find these colors and more at any local drug store or beauty shop. Buy yourself a bottle and I swear you will become just as obsessed as I am!

Black Prom Dresses That Will Make You Stand Out

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

Black will always be one of our best-selling colors for prom and TT New York has a bunch in stock! Below I listed the ones that I am obsessed with and also some of our best sellers! I am personally in love with all of the simple and elegant ones, but they are all so beautiful no matter what style you’re looking for. If you really wanted to make the dresses pop, then I recommend accessorizing with a red lipstick and some red heels!

Nothing makes me more envious than watching makeup tutorials and not being able to mimic what they are doing! I wish I had the ability to do amazing makeup without having to think about what to do next. After watching about a million makeup tutorial’s I began to take note on some things I was doing wrong.
