1. The Length. When I think of fall fashion, I think about leggings, tights, and boots. Whether you wear leggings and boots with a dress or long tunic, the Romaine Coat by BB Dakota is the perfect way to add … Continue reading
The bright hues and daring prints of summer have passed on the wayside… but fear not; fall makes a bold move by making plays on summer’s biggest trend: Aztec. So make way for geometrical patterns with bold pops of color … Continue reading
Moto jackets may have established their street cred long ago – and we’re not just relating to the Harley- Davidson community’s continued use – but fashion’s finest has grown to fully embrace this classic, asymmetrical zipper jacket and it’s many … Continue reading
Leather, pleather, faux leather, vegan leather – whatever you choose to call it – there is no shortage of it for fall. Leather details are all over the place; from leggings and sweaters to bracelets and bags, leather accents are one of the hottest trends this season. Leather accents are an edgy way to bring your spring wardrobe into the fall months. Toss on a pleather jacket over your floral dress and pair with some combat boots – perfection!
With faux leather accents dominating the fashion world, brands are finding creative ways to incorporate the material into sweaters and wovens. You can find leather details on sleeves of tops and dresses, a whole skirt or dress made of faux leather, or a pop of black pleather on the collar of a sheer chiffon top. It is oh so easy to incorporate this trend into your wardrobe!
Faux leather does not have to be relegated to hardcore rock stars or bikers – which is the beauty of this trend. You can make leather accents look as edgy or feminine as you want. I love mixing and matching edgy pieces with overtly girly pieces to balance the look out. If edgy is your style, go for pleather head to toe, why not?!
The leather details trend brings the runway to your closet. We can take notes from Phillip Lim, Ralph Lauren, and Burberry with all of their drop-dead gorgeous leather jackets and leather accented pieces and translate them to real life, affordable and adorable clothing that you can wear day to day. Here are some of our favorite faux leather pieces.

We know that there is still a decent amount of summer left, but it never hurts to start thinking ahead towards semi-cooler days. I don’t know about you, but now is the time that I start thinking about fall. I … Continue reading
It’s an otherworldly city, in the middle of the desert, filled with lights, outlandish occupants, entertainment, and most importantly, Magic. I’m not referring to the David Copperfield show at MGM Grand. No, I’m referring to Magic Trade Show, and the Glik’s buying team traveled to Las Vegas, Nevada this week for the sole fashionable purpose of style.
This monster of a convention plays host to shoe, apparel, and accessory brands from ALL over. If you’re in retail, no matter what your division, this is the place to be. Literally, there is so much going on in this small 72 hour window of time that–if you’re not careful– you have a chance of loosing your mind to sensory overload.
Here’s just a sneak peek of what happened in Vegas.
Our current obsession: Chevron.
LA Idol denim
Love these riding boots.
Day 2 was spent with the men’s team at Project.
Day 3 was spent with the women’s team again at Magic. We met with morning appointments then spent the afternoon looking for new fashion brands.
Meanwhile, back home in the Midwest…
We can’t wait to share with you more photos from Magic Trade Show! Stay tuned!!
Chevron. There is definitely a bit of history behind this zig-zag print. It has been seen in badges, architecture, and as far back as ancient pottery, but in 2012 the chevron pattern emerged and evolved into a popular trend in the fashion scene.
What more can we say? There are many fantastic qualities to behold when it comes to this geometric print, but we believe its best attribute has to be its versatility. Whether the zig-zag stripes are close together or far apart, in bold colors or subtle hues, you can achieve a range of drastically different “looks” with this pattern.
Even used as a small accent or as a statement piece, Chevron has the ability to vamp up any wardrobe!
We can’t go on without sharing another wonderful quality of this print … it has a totally adaptable, do-it-yourself quality as well Due to the simplicity of chevron’s pattern, it has become a “go-to” design for crafters from all different walks. Just visit any Pinterest board and you can see the famous zig-zag print being painted on everything from picture frames to rugs, walls, home decor and even being used in re-purposing old furniture (we suggest checking this out).
Bottom Line: Chevron’s versatility makes it a must-have for your closet.
Maybe it has something to do with the new year starting, out with the old in with the new, right? It always seems like January is the time when you want to mix things up a little bit and bring some of that “newness” to your style and perspective. 2013 is still super fresh and so are your forward thinking ideas.
This has been the first week–since the endless, mind numbing counting from inventory– that we have been allowed to bust into all of the brown boxes stacked in the back of Glik’s warehouse. It’s always a fun time when you have boxes upon boxes of new spring clothing to sift through and share with others. Call it the “perks of the job,” and probably the reason why my wardrobe is always on the edge of erupting like a volcano of color and fabrics.
This week new arrivals from BB Dakota and Jack Clothing for Spring 2013 started to arrive. I felt inspired so I threw together a few outfits that incorporated new styles with already existing.
Say hello to throwback floral prints and bight splashes of accent colors.
Whether dressed up or down, metallic denim can add an extra dash of edge to any outfit.
Pastels will make their presence known this spring. What girl can say no to these light, breezy, and beautiful colors?
With New Year’s Eve only a few days away, it’s time to narrow down your options and decide what to wear. If your party plans involve a swanky gathering with all of your friends or a night out on the town with no set path, we have just the right outfit for your adventure.

If you’re still burnt out from all that strenuous holiday shopping, then I suggest pulling out that trusty LBD you keep nestled in you closet and dressing it up for whatever occasion you have ahead of you. Recharge your classic dress by pairing it with glittery accessories like a glitzy statement necklace or chandelier earrings, adding shimmery heels and maybe even an accented clutch.
Jeans: Miss Me (here)

If you’re more “at home” in a comfy pair of jeans then I would suggest denim with a little glitz to it. Go-to brands like Miss Me and LA Idol Jeans are known for their “blinged out” back pocket designs and are worthy of any NYE bash. Just pair these designer inspired denim jeans with a cute fashion top, statement heels, and accessories for a complete look. Once you have your outfit complete all you’ll need is hair & makeup. Be sure to visit us on Pinterest for New Year’s Eve ideas!
Now all you need is a kiss 3…2…1…Happy New Year!!!
Tis the season to sparkle and shine! Whether you’re at a holiday party or out with friends attending a New Years Eve bash, there is always room for your style to shine this holiday season!
Every wardrobe needs at least one embellished frock to break out for special occasions during the holidays. I personally own two sparkly dresses, and with several holiday parties already scheduled, I’m sure to don both glowing gowns. I wanted to share with you a list of my favorite shimmer and shine frocks from BB Dakota & Jack Clothing, in case you’re on the hunt for just the right dress to let your style shine!
How would you style your shimmer & shine dress?
