Is Blue for You?

Would you wear this??

I was reading in my gossip mags these past few weeks and noticed a theme. All discussed the new trend in nail polish which is blue. I don't know if I would ever be daring enough to wear blue nail polish on either my nails or my toes. All I could think about was trying to take it off and having your nails have a blue hue to them. This is not a trend that screams "Try Me" in my eyes. I tend to lean more to shades of pinks and neutrels. I did embrace the dark purple and black trend in recent years. Something about painting your nails blue really just stumps me. Celebrities such as Jessica Simpson and Jessica Alba have been spotted wearing this new hue from the red carpet to taking a stroll. Katy Perry and Ke$ha have been spotten in this new hue on the stage, which in my opinion is a more fitting place for this trend. What do you think? Could you pull off the new trend in nail polish?

That's My Bag, Baby!

I'm not the type of girl who changes my handbag every day (way to much stuff!), but I do like to change my bag each season.

And each time I get the itch to buy, I like to hop online and flip through magazines to see what styles are hot with celebrities. Here are a few of my faves for summer:

The studded tote: The perfect summer carryall...with a little extra edge.

Extra-light, Extra-neutral: Love, love how light and summery this color is...and it goes with everything!

Tasseled Shoulder Bag: This fringed "wild west" style is everywhere! The smaller size makes it easier to downsize, lighten the load and carry only essentials.

Of course...now I have to settle on just one!

Fashion Show in New Jersey

So recently, I attended the 48th Annual Scholarship Benefit hosted by the North Jersey Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority (a.k.a. the Delta’s…You know all the beautiful independent ladies in their red & white?).

It was such a worthy cause, and we were so glad to be able to participate! The benefit raised money and awarded deserving high school seniors with college scholarships. It was an event filled with inspiration, food, dancing and – of course – fashion!

In fact, during the fashion show segment of the benefit, at least 14 metrostyle outfits were featured and the girls were FAB-U-LOS. Hats, dresses, bags and shoes…all metrostyle products.

There was also a segment dedicated to metro’s convertible dress, and the models were work-ing-it! It was great to see our clothes on such beautiful women. Such a Blast!!! Watch out Chanel Iman!!!

I Bleed Green!

So here we are again, the Boston Celtics have started another playoffs series with none other than the Los Angeles Lakers. This is a rivalry that dates back to 1959, these two teams have played 12 match ups and the Celtics have won 9 of 12 (the first 8 in a row!) This next meeting is history in the making - The Celtics lead with 17 total world championships, and the Lakers not too far behind at 15. There is a lot riding on this series, so it'll be one for the ages!

Whichever team you're rooting for, check out our What's Hot > Which Hue is You? section to find "Go Green" or "Hello Yellow" to get the proper color gear to sport at the game (if you were lucky enough to get tickets) or at the local sports bar to cheer on your team. My husband says that when I signed our marrige license, I vowed to be a Celtics fan for life! GO CELTS!

What's Hot?

What's hot this week? Suits from Larry Levine!

Check out our sexy and sophisticated suits by renowned designer Larry Levine! Chic and stylish, these suits are super flattering and easy on the budget. My faves are.... the leopard print skirt suit, for those days when you are feeling a little wild... I love the sexy pink hue of the oversized collar skirt suit... and the pretty in peach and oh-so-feminine portrait neck skirt suit.

The Perfect Jean

Ok, so even though I am an associate and get a discount, I have to admit I have not bought any of our pants. I always thought the sizes ran small and I didn't want to be disappointed. But I finally broke down when these fabulous jeans came out! I am happy to say I was far from disappointed, they are so comfortable and fit perfectly! I also love the embellishments, it's just the right amount. Plus I got a bunch of compliments on the look and fit that I felt like a star! So if you love compliments, style and a good fit, I highly recomend you go to metrostyle.com and right now and get yourself a pair before they are gone!
