#WeLove Fedoras and #Fashionista s….#Style Profile

07/18/2011

Here’s an interesting question we found perusing the net.  What we thought was a Fedora is actually a Trilby.  Well, guess what we have in stock? Grey, Dk Brown and Ivory Trilby’s at TryingTwenties.com.

Reader Question: Trilby vs. Fedora

By Truth in Fashion | Published: June 27, 2011

Dear Truth in Fashion,

I see hats called fedoras, and others called trilbies, but I really don’t see a difference, are they the same thing?

Mindy

Dear Mindy,

They look a lot alike but actually have subtle differences. What we are seeing right now in fashion being called a fedora is most likely a trilby. A trilby hat has a thinner rim than a fedora. For some fun facts about the names of these hats, the trilby was named after a play based off of George du Maurier’s book, Trilby. In the play, one of the characters wore one of these hats. The fedora was also named after a play called Princess Fedora where the main character wore this style of hat.

Thanks Truth in Fashion!

Lesson Learned and I still get to be in Style!

LIVE Life…And get your terminology right.

Trying to #BeSexy in the City…..

04/20/2011

Many of us LOVE the Sex and the City reruns and have imitated the ladies’ Fabulous efforts to constantly have a good time. For those of us who date and have had some inexplicable nights away from home, you’ll find this article understandable. It’s yet another way to use your handbag for more than just an attractive accessory. From Saturday night fun with your guy to Sunday brunch with the girls, you’ll find everything you need to not miss a beat with the right handbag.

Note – If we are gonna be heathens, somewhere in there we probably should hit up church on Sunday…. Totally up to you.  BUT know that your handbag may be okay for service, but doubtful about your ‘”Get ‘Em, Girl” outfit….LOL

Catwalk of Shame-Morning After Bag by Rebecca Minkoff

There’s nothing quite like starting your day by skipping oral hygiene, repeating an outfit, and waving good-bye while issuing a convincing, “I’ll call you later!”  That’s why Rebecca Minkoff has come up with the perfect accessory for the repercussions of her sexy clothing line: the Morning After bag.

Qualities to look for in your Morning After Bag:

1. Big enough to stash all of your, um, overnight/next-day needs, but boho-chic enough for everyday use.

2. Toteable handles slip easily over your shoulder, making these carryalls perfect for lugging last night’s disco heels around all day.

3. Pretty enough that you may find yourself arranging sleepovers just to rationalize the purchase.

See? Your morning-after style profile is soaring already.  Though we can’t say the same for your reputation.

Get your overnight totes today with us!  Here are some of the large handbags we love that can take us from day to night to day again…LOL

Happy Shopping! -Aerika Eshelle
