Pink Pewter Stretch Headbands

This week a new women’s accessory line, Pink Pewter, made its debut on our New Arrivals page at gliks.com. This fashion forward  hair and jewelry accessory line for women offers absolutely stunning high-fashion accessories that are both fun, edgy, and versatile enough to be used in a wide range of looks. Accentuate any outfit effortlessly with an embellished, stretch headband from Pink Pewter, or completely switch up your whole entire look.

Pink Pewter’s founder, Mireya Villarreal, created this brand with one, clear-cut ambition. As a creative hairstylist herself, she wanted to create an accessory line that would not only transform old ‘looks’, but at the same time revitalize old hairstyles by keeping them in pace with modern trends.

As a stylist, Mireya has worked in the beauty industry for runway and for international performing artists. She was able to gain a unique perspective into the flow of trends throughout her time spent traveling, which in turn allowed her direction on developing her own line of chic accessories that are designed to compliment a wide variety of looks and personalities. Pink Pewter started as a small collection of headbands and clips. Now it has grown into a full line of accessories and jewelry products that are diligently kept up-to-date with the hottest fabrics, colors, cuts, and materials. Each design that Pink Pewter produces in its collection is unique as well as stunning.

Cutoff Obsessed

Denim cutoffs are fundamental during the warmer months of summer and for good reason too! No matter what your personal style, this summer wardrobe essential is versatile enough to go from casual to chic in minutes.

I’m a HUGE fan of cutoffs, so much so that I have a whole drawer solely dedicated to my collection of both branded, vintage and DIY denim shorts. When I’m not dressed for work, I’m mixing and matching outfits around my denim cutoffs. Whether paired with fancy tops or preppy tees and boho camis, these classic denim shorts are always my go-to for summer!

I’ve been scouring the Internet for inspiration on how to style my cutoffs this summer, and here are a few of my favorite outfits. Enjoy!

I love how actress, Jamie Chung

mixes up her “look” with an outfit that is the perfect balance of preppy and cool. You can try to recreate her ensemble by pairing your denim cutoffs with a basic tee, and for a classic take on a normally casual look opt for a tailored blazer.

One of my favorite bloggers, Sincerely, Jules knows how to rock cutoffs! I’m obsessed with all of her unique looks…

Where is the Love? (Lucy Love)

Fashion starts oh-so simply with an idea.

In 1999, that idea was a fashion line geared toward the feminine, as well as, free-spirited twenty-something girl, and it was called Lucy Love. This family owned line found its roots in Newport Beach, California and remains there today. Lucy Love is owned and operated by the Sharp family, who has had their hands in the fashion industry since the early 1980’s. Fashion designer and mother, Holly Sharp took her years of knowledge in the fashion world and teamed up with her daughter, Amber to create a line “by girls, for girls”.

Lucy Love is for that girl who passionately lives her free- spirited lifestyle surrounding the beach, who doesn’t just dress for a day on the sand at the water’s edge.

 “The whole point is to dress the girl for her entire day,” explained by Holly Sharp. “When she buys into a brand, she wants it all. And she doesn’t live in board shorts and T-shirts. She’s much more intelligent than that.”

Lucy Love is a line that is designed to give girls confidence, it’s important to have that in ourselves ladies! What we choose to wear plays a HUGE role in the way we feel about ourselves, more often than not, what and how we wear our clothing conveys our very mood. There are many tools used in fashion. But, the most important tool it possesses is the illusion it gives!

The mother/daughter designer team that makes up Lucy Love recognizes this.  Amber Sharp has admitted that she designs the various pieces that make up a Lucy Love fashion collection to “mirror various moods” for particular days.  Her approach to designing Lucy Love clothing allows for each different fashion piece to “embody and empower” every girl’s mood, cool right?

If you’re feeling light-hearted slip into something like the ultra feminine, flirty striped Gabriel dress from Lucy Love. This SUPER chic dress is as unique as you are!

Embrace the ocean wind as it tickles your skin through the dainty, sheer material and lifts your heart! Let it play with the delicate layers of this stylish loose flowing dress from Lucy Love.  Seize the day in the Gabriel striped dress and a cute pair of strappy sandals.

Let your confidence shine as brightly as the sun and hold tight to your rare style in the Lucy Love Villa mini dress.  Feel your colorful emotions freely and wear them for the world to see in this belted dress.

Each person you meet will taste a different flavor of your colorful personality. Paired with strappy sandals and boho inspired jewelry, the Villa mini dress by Lucy Love, as well as, you are a colorful and daring work of art!

            The Gabriel dress doesn’t just come in Lucy Love’s uniquely striped design. It’s colors range like your style.  Going for a 60’s vintage look? Try the Lucy Love Gabriel dress in white.

You’re a free-spirited soul, born of the wind and wearing your heart where your head should be. Fly with confidence, little lady dove, letting the chiffon layers and billowing 3/4 sleeves of the Gabriel dress be your wings. Have peace in your mind and love in your heart for all who you come in contact with when you wear this ethereal white dress from Lucy Love. Your kind heart will be full of warmth and you will glow in this dress when you pair it with a dainty pair of sandals or espadrille detailed platform wedges and delicate jewelry.

            Let your personality blossom like a spring flower in this elegant Vineyard dress by Lucy Love. You are a vibrant and vivacious flower whose charisma smells as sweet as the dainty roses you are wearing.

Your graceful steps down the beach will turn heads and lift hearts when you pass by wearing the floral print Lucy Love dress. The Vineyard dress’s exaggerated high-low hem ruffles softly around your sun-kissed legs and your elasticized waist with adjustable self-tie creates a lovely blouson silhouette that flows as freely as your soul when the sea breeze licks by you. Pair this exquisite chiffon dress with a cute pair of sandals or spring inspired wedges and let your aura glimmer like dew drops on a flower’s petal in the sunlight.

Lucy Love doesn’t just create feminine, flirty, as well as, classically chic dresses. Their line ranges from undergarments to accessories, touching on every item a girl’s heart could possibly desire.  Here at Glik’s, fashion is our passion and we strive to provide clothing that makes your unique, one of a kind personality shine!

The Boardshort Breakdown. Billabong’s Style

Hey guys and gals, Spring is just around the corner, with Summer close behind. That means sunshine, warm weather, and most fun of all, water activities! Whether you live on a sandy beach, have a boat docked on your nearest local lake, or get your recreational water sport kicks on the mighty Mississippi river, a man’s best friend in the water is a pair of great performance boardshorts!

It’s quite evident that Billabong shares our love of the water as shown by their super cool “Life is Better in Boardshorts,” 2012 campaign!

Billabong’s humble beginning started when Gordon Merchant began producing handmade boardshorts with his wife Rena in 1973 from their house in Burleigh Point, Australia. This cherished tropical refuge of Gordon’s was a place where you could wear boardshorts all year round.  Merchant, also a surfer himself, as well as, a board shaper, wanted to develop boardshorts that not only provided the best fit and quality, but could also withstand the various elements that surfers encountered while out in the water.  His business found an instant following, the boardshorts being produced by the Merchants proved to possess amazing performance and resilience in the water, due to the triple-stitching technique developed by Gordon.

Now, fast-forward to 2012 where Billabong is an international company known and respected for its dealings in the boardsport industry.  But, even through all its growth since 1973, Billabong continues to “keep it real,” and maintain its roots by continuing to uphold its commitment to global boardsports through event hosting and sponsoring industry athletes.

So, for Billabong, life really is better in boardshorts! What better way to prove this than with their Platinum X and Recycler Series. The really cool thing about the Recycler series is that the boardshorts are made from recycled PET bottles. So like, Billabong says “Innovation through performance and conservation.”

So, let’s meet Billabong’s Influence boardshort. This men’s striped boardshort packs all of the high-performance details you need into one style punch!  And by style, we’re referencing the really cool screen print/color combo this short is donning!

The Billabong Men’s Influence boardshort features:

  • Zero Gravity fabric, which is an exclusive Billabong fabric that uses Quad X Stretch (four-way stretch) to boost flexibility in all directions.
  • H2 Repel, this technology forces water to bead off the surface of the fabric. This equals less rash/chaffing.
  • Ergonomic Panels, for maximum stretch, any yoga instructor can’t compete with.
  • Recycled ZG fabric, made with recycled PET bottles and saving the environment on pair of boardshorts at a time.
  • Welded Seams, stretch 100% with the fabric, creating smooth, comfortable seams.

Also from Billabong is the Men’s Striker boardshort.  This super functionally fun boardshort sports a horizontal multi stripe design, a solid contrast waistband, is scalloped and features side taping.  It looks really cool in this mint, black and white color combo!

The Billabong Men’s Striker boardshort features:

  • PX4- Hydrostretch
  • Quad X Stretch (4-way mechanical stretch)
  •  H2 Repel, a moisture wicking finish that reduces water absorption and friction
  • 100% Recycled Polyester
  • 20” Performance Fit
  • PX Infinity Weld, meaning less seams to maximize the fabric’s full stretch potential

Feel like “the Dude” in the Billabong Men’s Vantage Platinum X boardshort! The color combo of blue, aqua, yellow and black make the geometric print pattern really POP. The Billabong wave logo chilling on the left leg versus the horizontal striping on the right gives this boardshort it’s own style.

Not forgetting Billabong Men’s Vantage Platinum X boardshort’s awesome features:

  • Made of Recycler Zero Gravity fabric, that is lightweight and preferred by athletes, because of it’s extreme flexibility and stretch.
  • Part of the Recycler Series, boasting an 87% recycled polyester/ 13% spandex ratio, packing performance and conservation into each pair of boardshort.
  • H2 Repel, moisture wicking to prevent chafing.
  • Quad X Stretch (4-way stretch)

Love them like you love your dog, boardshorts are truly man’s best friend this summer. Glik’s is here to provide you with top-notch performance boardshorts for your active summer season! Be sure to visit us at gliks.com or any Glik’s store location nearest to you.

Trend Alert: Leopard Print!

The new HOT trend this year is leopard print.  It lets you stand out from the crowd and show off your wild side.  Celebs sporting this trend and showing their spots everywhere.

There are many different ways to wear leopard prints.  The one thing to remember that when it comes to animal prints, or any bold prints for that matter, less is more.  For example, leopard print makes the perfect accessory in a pair of pumps, a handbag, or a scarf, but you can have too much of a good thing.  Stick with only one leopard print accessory.

Leopard print can also be hot in a dress, pants, or a top, just make sure to pair it with simple yet fab accessories, such as black combat boots or pumps, or a simple top.

Check out how these celebs style their leopard print.

Miley Cyrus, Christina Aguilera, Vanessa Hudgens and Rihanna show their spots.
