What to Wear on Valentine’s Day: Date Night

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and if you’re lucky, your significant other has already made plans for the two of you to celebrate this romantic holiday. Now that your plans are set, I bet you’re wondering what to wear. Never fear, I’ve got three Valentine’s Day outfits that will impress far beyond February 14th.

Everly Clothing Mock Neck Dress

valentines-day-outfit

This sleeveless shift dress from Everly is guaranteed to help you steal his heart. I love this dress because it is ultra feminine and easy to accessorize.  Did I mention this dress is fully lined? For a complete look, pair this Everly dress with gold accessories, a killer pair of heels, and a glossy lip.  Try the Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Gloss Lip Lacquer Lipgloss in Moonglow.  It’s the perfect soft pink nude color.

Elan Clothing Floral Print Dress with Bell Sleeves

valentines-day-outfit

Hands down, this Elan Clothing dress is my favorite! The floral pattern and color combination of this dress are romantic without looking overly festive.  The sleeves are unlined, but the body of the dress is fully lined so you won’t need to fuss with a slip.  With a flattering A-line silhouette, this Elan dress is a solid option for every body type.  Pair this floral dress with a great pair of wedges, a statement necklace and mauve lip.  Try the Tarteist Lip Paint by Tarte in Fomo.

Pink so not your color? Try this Valentine’s Day outfit!

Elan Clothing Black Dress with Crochet Detail Sleeves

valentines-day-outfit

If you’re so not into wearing red or pink clothes this Valentine’s Day, you can always opt for my go-to color:  black.  This dress, also by Elan Clothing, is a great option to wear out with your S.O. without feeling like a walking advertisement for the holiday.  It has a slight high-low hemline and long bell sleeves with crochet detail.  This dress is unlined so dress accordingly underneath 😉 Style this number with gold accessories and a wedge sandal. Add a pop of color on your lips with Studded Kiss Lipstick by Kat Von D in Lullaby.

Have a great Valentine’s Day ❤

A great pair of boots will always take your outfit to the next level! Partner your denim shirt with a fun pair of cowboy boots, lace-ups or ankle boots.

Every wardrobe should have a denim jacket in its possession. A quality denim jacket can be used year round and transcend into seasons yet to come. If you don’t have one, get one! You will not regret the decision!

An Evening of Fashion and Fanfare hosted by Lift for Life Academy

On Saturday, May 12th we joined Lift for Life Academy, a St. Louis based charter school, for their fundraising event An Evening of Fashion & Fanfare, which was held to benefit the amazing students of this great school.

The theme of this event, Fashion & Fanfare, showcased handcrafted fashions made by some of the very talented girls of Lift for Life Academy. They partnered with Laura Kathleen Planck & Michael Drummond of Lifetime Television’s Project Runway to host the affair. Glik’s was fortunate enough to receive the opportunity to become involved in this event by donating the shoes that were handpicked and worn by the fashionistas themselves to ensure that each outfit had a “complete” look.

The lucky fashionistas of Lift For Life Academy received the amazing opportunity to refine their design skills and learn from the wonderful and talented, Laura Kathleen Planck. You may recognize her from season 9 of Project Runway (she finished in the top 5). Planck teaches the fashion design course for this wonderful charter school.

These LUCKY girls worked hard on their fashion lines for the event. Each designer’s artful eye for chic fashion and following current trends, combined with their hard work took center stage May 12th and finished to a standing ovation from the attendees of the event!

Everyone was amazed by all the brilliantly talented fashionistas of Lift for Life Academy and cannot wait to see their future designs. Glik’s was a proud supporter of An Evening of Fashion & Fanfare.  Photos from the event can be seen online at Glik’s Facebook page or from Alive magazine’s coverage at alivemag.com.

Great Work Girls!!

New Shoes = LOVE!

OMG SHOES!

Look what Tricia and I found!!  We ventured deep into the warehouse to rip open boxes like a pair of over-excited toddlers on their birthdays.  Oh, what a girl will do for cute shoes.  

And my oh my are these HOT!  Just in time for heading back to school, these boots are both new from Soda.  The grey boot is a layered multi chain shootie bootie and the black is a double buttoned cuffed shootie bootie with a gathered upper.   

For a great look, pair either of these with skinny jeans or leggings and an off the shoulder top.  I’m already visualizing multiple outfits I can put together with the black boots.  I simply cannot resist them.      

Want a pair?  They will be in our Granite City, Edwardsville, Cahokia, and Danville locations in Illinois and our Farmington and St. Robert locations in Missouri.   

You might want to hurry before Tricia and I buy them all up though.  

Me! I LOVE the black pair.
Tricia, the shoe buyer. You can thank her for all of our awesome shoes!
New Shoes = LOVE!

Covering up is cute when it’s in one of the season’s hottest trends, destructed denim.  These jean shorts from Almost Famous are a summer necessity.

Every girl has a collection of sunglasses, and these shades from Blue Gem will be a perfect addition to yours.

Night:

Dress up any would-be casual outfit with these wedge heels from Cupid.

Add a splash of color and style with this purse from Dooney & Burke.  It’s the perfect size for a night out.

No outfit is complete without a little added flare, and this bracelet from Andrea Bijoux does just that.

Top it all off with one of the season’s hottest fashions, a straw fedora, like this one from Roxy.
