RUG UP! *Live* YouTube Video

 

Hey Hey Gorgeous!

My hubby knows I’m not a fan of cold weather so when I ask if it’s cold out — his way of telling me it indeed it is, “Yes, rug up gorgeous!”. That’s Aussie terms for bundle up and put a big coat, scarf and gloves on or you’re gonna freeze. Although I’m not a fan of the cold, I am a fan of a fabulous coat. In today’s YouTube LIVE video, I share my 11 favorite blazers, jackets and coats for Fall.

The Start Of My Fab Vegan Collection

Happy Sunday Sistas!

FullSizeRender-12

As you all know, I love a good shoe sale! The hunt and rush of finding fabulous foot candy is well, how to say it…I’m an addict ok…without apologies! I’ve mentioned early in the birth of this blog that when I got married and took a step back from my television career, my shopping budget went from Fred Segal and Neiman’s status to TJ Maxx and Marshall’s. Learning to shop with Cristal Champagne taste on a Bud Light budget became a fun form of creativity for me. Of course, after the initial mourning over the loss of all the designer items I sold.

A moment of silence for those Gucci handbags, please.

Now, I get to teach all of you how to get creative! You do not have to sacrifice style and expressing yourself through fashion just because you have to wear Steve Madden instead of Christian Louboutin. I actually sold my remaining few Loubou’s on Ebay to have extra spending money when we moved to Dallas last year and you know what? I don’t miss them one bit. Now, will I add more Loubou’s to my shoe collection at some point? Heck yea sista! I’ve learned to embrace the ebb & flow of life. Even how it pertains to my wardrobe!

Now, to today’s point. As a lover of the finer, most beautifully crafted types of shoes- I admit to being a bit snobby when it came to wearing “vegan” non-leather shoes. Then, a few months ago a client hired me to coach her on image and give her some tips to begin “veganizing” her wardrobe. She made a valid point for wanting to rid her closet of leather goods, but had not been able to find really chic & fashionable items in her country.

SOS to the rescue!

Right before I started working with her, I had just bought a few non-leather handbags that I simply adored. They were so cute I didn’t care that they weren’t expensive Italian leather. There are so many on-trend and stylish companies producing great quality vegan items now. So, I had gotten over my snobby attitude toward bags, but still had an ego about the shoes. My style philosophy has always been that you can wear stylish inexpensive outfits from H & M, but don’t be too chintzy on the shoes. But, we’re always growing and evolving with our fashion sense and when I saw a stylish fashionista rockin’ these hot red fringe booties at an event last month…I just had to have them. Come to find out they were faux suede and under $20. Say what?  By Shoe Republic LA.

My vegan shoe collection has officially been started! The great thing about buying trendy vegan shoes is you can purchase several pair and still have money left over to buy those pair of great fitting jeans or that chic black blazer at a heaftier price tag. If they are super trendy, you may not even wear them the following year and then you aren’t out $1500. Which is equivalent to some people’s mortgage payment! Ouch.

Here are a few more vegan shoes by that I’ve added to the collection…

These blingy leopard print heels above, also by Shoe Republic LA, were a bit over-the-top for me, but they kept calling my name…Pssst, Tiffany…can I come live in your closet room please? If you saw my shoe webisode, you know I’m a firm believer in buying statement specialty shoes.. just because! 

Chambray denim is one of THE hottest styles this Spring. So is the high 70’s platform! I was thrilled to find these to wear with colorful floral maxi sundresses.

END OF MAY SOS BEAUTY/STYLE/INSPIRATION

Hey Style Sistas!

WOOHOO!  It’s officially Summer and as the temps continue to heat up, here’s a few tips for staying cool and looking fabulous, plus some inspiration for the week ahead:

WRAP THAT HAIR UP!

Tiff_leopard_headscarf

Regardless of your hair length, it can get so sticky and uncomfortable, plus the humidity can have you looking like a wet mop during summer.  There are so many ways to keep it off your neck without reverting to the boring old ponytail.  This summer, the Retro 50’s look is everywhere from swimsuits, rolled up jeans, cat eye shades and headscarfs–which you all know is MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE!   Channel your inner Old Hollywood actress like Sophia Loren or Audrey Hepburn and play around with scarves.  Check out my Pinterest Board on headscarves for more ideas and inspiration.

SPRAY THAT FACE!

rosepetalsrosewater

Keep a bottle of aromatherapy hydrating spray nearby at all times during the hot months.  I even keep a small travel size bottle in my purse!  When you’re skin is feeling parched, spritz it on your face, neck, decolletage and down your arms.  My favorite is the Rose Water by Heritage Products.  There are also easy DIY recipes by adding your favorite essential oils, pure aloe vera juice, cucumber or lemon to distilled water. 

 

BE INSPIRED!

‘NUFF SAID.

Let us be grateful for the good times May brought, any special memories made with new or old friends, exciting experiences and opportunities then begin to set your intentions for June.

Walk Tall +  Strut Yo’ Stuff Sista!

Love, Tiff

Sunday Eve Affirmations: I WILL…..

Hey Lovely Ladies,

When you close your eyes and think of the word, ABUNDANCE, what comes to mind?  Here is Webster’s definition:

a·bun·dance [noun]
1.an extremely plentiful or oversufficient quantity or supply.
2.overflowing fullness

This week, my wish for all of us, is that we stop and appreciate the abundance in our lives. It is not about how fat our bank account is or the “things” we acquire.  Abundance is feeling vibrant, alive and fully living each day with love and passion. It’s about enjoying the simple moments, the unexpected blessings that make life beautiful and most importantly, being grateful for what we have!  Life is short.  I watch so many people wasting their lives away trying to get more, do more and earn more money– yet they can’t maintain healthy relationships and their aging themselves too quickly because they are all work and no play.  I was one of those people and almost became a drug addict because of it.  My resume, the networks and producers I worked for, the size of my paycheck, the Gucci hangbag on my arm and the SUV I drove was my definition of abundance….BOY, did I have it all wrong! 

THIS WEEK, I WILL….

  1. Not lower myself by participating in gossip.
  2. Be an encourager instead of a critic.
  3. Get my glow on by eating a serving of blueberries every morning.
  4. Dance, paint, sing or do whatever that makes me feel free.
  5. Rock a dash of leopard print.
  6. Shine my light because the world needs it.
  7. Schedule my workouts as if they are an important meeting.
  8. Simplify my life + clear the clutter wherever it needs it.
  9. Drink a glass of lemon water upon rising before my coffee or tea.
  10. Say a prayer of gratitude for my abundant life.
  11. Release all fears + doubts and GO FOR IT!

{Daily Serving of Blueberries}

{Dash of Leopard Print}

{Shine On}

 

I would love to hear your comments on how these weekly affirmations have been effective in your life.

We’re in this together!

If you see a sister who’s spark is dim this week, help her out by fanning her flame and be an encouragement instead of a critic.

RADIATE LOVE,

Tiff

A DAY IN MY LIFE…

Hey SOS Sista’s,

I hope everyone is feeling Sassy, Stylish and Superfly today!   As I write this, I am gearing up for a fun girlie day of shopping and getting my hair done (honestly, I hate sitting in the salon chair) to get “purdy” for my B-day weekend coming up.    I have no clue what the festivities will be, but I know my honey and friends have something up their sleeve!   I want to hear how YOUR summer has been so leave a COMMENT BELOW and let us all know! (Hey, I made a rhyme)

In the latest webisode, I wanted to try something a little different and bought the newer version of the FLIP camera in HD.  That lil thing rocks!  Highly recommend you get one to record fun occasions with fam and friends!   They’re inexpensive and very user friendly.  Ok, back to the subject… I decided to tape my lovely Go-to-Girl, Vio Meyners in a typical day of ours.  We start with a workout, play in her closet, head to an audition, lunch and tape an SOS webisode with Marcy Guevara (coming soon!!). 

Just FYI, no- I do not go around looking this made up on a daily basis unless I have auditions or meetings!  The tomboy is still very alive in me and on most days, I’m sporting track pants and tennis shoes!  Hope you enjoy a glimpse into my life.  Let me know what ya think and if you would like to see more “reality show”style webisodes…

I get so excited every season to see what the latest & greatest styles will be!   Good thing for all of us FASHIONISTA’S, many of the trends we’ve been seeing since last Fall 2010 through Spring 2011 are the same.  Makes it easy on the wallet!  Get ready to shop your closet before hitting the stores.  You know me, I’m googoo gaga over all the LEOPARD print out right now and did purchase a smokin’ hot pair of leopard shoes. Could not resist.  PURRRR!  So,  if you have a leopard print piece, this is the season to ROCK IT!  

In fact, upload a photo of yourself rockin’ your leopard to the SOS facebook page and a winner will be chosen to win a VERY special prize – one of MY FAVE ACCESSORIES!   ONLY SUBSCRIBERS TO THIS BLOG ARE ELIGIBLE!

My Fave Quote This Week:
“Oftentimes, people allow the opinions of others to hold them back & water down their dreams. But, we have to realize that there will always be critics & naysayers in life. One of the most important things you can learn is that other people don’t have to believe in you in order for your dreams to come to pass. Other people don’t set the limits for your life — YOU DO! (Joel Osteen)

FLY HIGH!  xoTiff
