BEHIND THE SCENES: TED DREWES PHOTO SHOOT

Glik's Fashion Photo ShootWe’re back at it again, and this time with a winter fashion photo shoot! We had lots of fun visiting Ted Drewes Frozen Custard and Christmas Tree Shop in order to create some seasonal snapshots. This entire shoot is brought to you by friends, fashion, and freezing temps. So come along with us for a behind-the-scenes look at how our whole day went!

 

Women's Winter FashionWe were absolutely dying to have a photo shoot that involved Christmas trees. What better place to go than Ted Drewes? Our models, Rachel and Randi, were the perfect pair for helping us show off our new women’s winter fashion.

 

Winter DressesWe made sure to get lots of photos by the pines in order to help our social media posts and our website to look festive for the season. The trees were so beautiful and we were so excited to have the perfect Christmas tree background for our fashion shots!

 

Winter Dresses for WomenBy these smiling faces, you would never know that the temperature that day was freezing cold. This is a glimpse of our models’ glamorously brisk walk back to their changing station in order to get ready for their next look.

 

Vests for WomenOne of our hottest styles for Christmas 2018 was this Park City Vest from Thread and Supply! Our girls were showing off the versatility of this fully reversible vest and they were loving the added layers for modeling on this chilly day.

 

Sherpa Pullovers for WomenYou know we couldn’t forget to take a sherpa picture! We loved how the colors of Rachel’s pullover and Randi’s jacket were perfectly complimented by the gorgeous green trees in the background.

 

Thread and Supply for WomenEven though we absolutely adored all the trees, we wanted to explore our surroundings in order to switch up the background a bit. This tan, brick wall was perfect for showcasing these beautiful styles from Thread & Supply!

 

Thread and Supply for WomenWe loved the comfy combination of C.C. Beanies and Thread & Supply styles! Randi was cuddled up in the ultra-soft Drayton Pullover, and Rachel was warm and cozy in her grey Dillon style.

 

Sweaters for WomenAfter venturing even further out from our original spot, we stumbled upon a cute place called, “Candy Cane Lane.” We absolutely had to capture some pictures by these adorable candy canes and we couldn’t be happier with the results!

 

Main Strip Sweaters for WomenIn order to be fully prepared for this festive shoot, we brought some fun Christmas-y props along with us. We think that these cute lights add that extra little something to Randi’s Main Strip sweater look, don’t you?

 

Elan SweaterNot only were these Lumiere pants absolutely perfect with Rachel’s Elan sweater, but we were loving the look of the festive garland wrapped around her shoulders too!

 

Accessories for WomenSince this part of town was rather quiet that day, we took a few photos out on the street for a high fashion look. For this photo, the girls were trying to show all the different ways you could wear a Look By M scarf. In the end, we all decided that this scarf looked the most comfortable when they were both cuddled up in it together.

 

Winter Dresses for WomenAt the end of our shoot, we decided that we needed a few more pictures of these gorgeous dresses. Then we spotted this beautiful set of Christmas red doors, and we knew we had found our final background destination! Thank goodness the weather warmed up so our models weren’t freezing for this final look.

 

Fashion and FriendsEven though our photo shoot was over, we couldn’t head back to the office before grabbing some custard to-go! Thank you for following us along on our latest behind-the-scenes story, and we hope to share our next adventure with you all as well!

Athletic Wear to Street Wear

As we saw last summer, it is no longer unheard of to try to pass athletic wear for fashion. Fashion is creatively trying to reinvent itself by turning its back on the constant posh style and leaning towards a more relaxed, laid-back look. This spring, more than ever, we are going to be seeing the gym-inspired attire making its way onto the streets and into everyday wear.

Everly Cardigan

With the rising of the “green movement”, people are moving towards a healthier lifestyle and a cleaner environment, making fitness and working out a priority in their schedule. This is why having a quick transition from activewear to daily wear has become so popular.

Now you can look cute after hitting the gym since over-sized tops, yoga pants, joggers, shorts, and sneakers are completely in style. When they are combined with fashionable pieces, they can create fashion forward ensembles. For example, an Under Armour Half-Zip can be paired with a fashionable vest so you are ready to hit the streets.

On the Road Again

My favorite thing about summer just happens to be good “old-fashioned” road trips with my friends. Whether our journeys last one, two, or several days, the whole point of piling yourself into a car with a few of your favorite people is essentially to have a grand adventure, take lots of pictures, listen to great music, and capture memories that will last you a lifetime.

I was recently “abducted” by a group of my closest friends and hijacked to a remote region that was literally in the middle of NO WHERE, and it was absolutely amazing! I was only given a matter of 45 minutes to pack a “small” bag of clothing, compile an epic playlist appropriately titled: Epic Eminence Playlist, and make enough PB & J sandwiches to last everyone two days.

 

This was my first of many “mini” roadtrips planned and unplanned for this summer. Being that I am literally a fashion hoarder, if it is a 3 day trip, I generally pack enough for a 7 day. I was actually proud of being able to pack all that I needed neatly into a daypack.  I reflected on this as I was making the 2+ hour drive to the “beyond” and wanted to provide you a list of road trip essentials.

The perfect pair of denim:

It’s going to be hot out, and besides a swimsuit you should definitely pack your favorite, most comfortable pair of cut off denim shorts. No matter where you go on your journey, whether it’s a festival, camping, float trip, or an outdoor day trip, your best bet is to wear your cut offs to ensure that they come back looking even more broken in and destructed!

Silver Jeans Co. Trinity Destructed Short

The perfect top:

Remember that you want to pack lightly for your trip, so I suggest a simple loose fitting flowy top. I literally love all of the new summer fashions from BB Dakota and Jack by BB Dakota right now! This brand is hitting on all of this summer’s hottest trends: crochet, lace, sheer chiffons, tribal prints, and bright colors!

For the cool evenings:

Normally it cools down in the evenings after a long day in the sun, so I will generally pack some sort of lightweight sweater or hoodie to slip on after I’ve moisturized my sun-kissed skin (girl’s got to keep her tan). I love all of the loose, textured knits that I am seeing and nothing works better than a super soft, cozy poncho!

Foot for Thought:

Don’t forget to pack a versatile pair of flip-flops, but also remember that a good pair of boots can go a long way when you’re outdoors. All of the new styles of Denver and Rio Grande boots from Very Volatile this summer are perfectly fashionable for wearing both in and outdoors.

REMEMBER: to wear accessories that are interchangeable with your outfits, pack light, and to always maintain a decent amount of fashionable safety when on your road trip adventures! My best advice is to HAVE FUN. It’s SUMMER! Don’t forget to stop in at your nearest Glik’s store location for other amazing summer trends and to visit us online at gliks.com for all of you fashionable needs!

{Faux Fur} Shed Some Style.

Although I’ve never really been a huge fan of the whole fur fad, I must admit, fur in vest form is actually kinda cute.

Celebrities have been seen flaunting furry vests all over the place! Ashley Tisdale, Kelly Rowland, and Katy Perry (a.k.a. Kitty Purry)…just to name a few.

Like other key pieces this season, the faux fur vest is a great way to look stylish and stay warm during the cooler weather.

Faux fur vests are super versatile and SO easy to style!

Fab Outfit Ideas:

  • Wear your vest over a long sleeve tee with dark skinny jeans tucked into cute military boots.
  • Wear your vest over a vintage dress and pair it with cable knit tights and suede pumps.
  • Wear your vest over a tailored woven top paired with leggings and platform booties.
  • Wear your vest with high-waisted jeggings, a slim black tank top, and tons of jewelry.
  • Wear your vest over any elegant cocktail dress; lace, velvet, silk…Sexy!
