I just wanted to reach out to all of you and send my sincerest gratitude for bearing with us these past weeks. You can never anticipate what life will throw at you and I believe it’s safe to say that it’s been a rough year for the majority of us. While we’ve all been catching up with life… we’re finally returning from our small hiatus. The support and comments have meant so much to us. We’re excited to show more of a variety of things this year, new experiments and upcoming artists. Thank you for hanging tight and staying the truest of fans. I’m looking at you, Pinterest supporters!
So, let’s cut to the chase… I rolled upon a really awesome website/blog. SaboSkirt.com is equal parts blog and fashion store. You’ll find the latest trends on a weekly basis. I find their style simple, girly, fresh and comfortable. You’ll fall in love with their tiny cross bracelets, knit tops and fun shorts. I’m always a fan of pastels and soft colors – so you’ll find it easy to pair pieces on their website. Check out a few of my faves below and be sure to visit their store for more items. saboskirt.com

Ok so I am pretty much in LOVE LOVE LOVE w/anything that Nicola Formichetti does because:
A) He’s everything
2) He’s the creative director for Theirry Mugler
D) He’s like, Gaga’s bestie!
Anywho. I’m always excited to see what he puts together for Mugler’s shows and of course he did not disappoint w/his latest showing in Paris. Ladies and gentlemen, Paris is burning and Nicola is serving us some Fifth Element realness here.
All in all I am living for this line and must own every piece of it. If there’s anyone who can make this happen please do so. You can find my contact info in the about us page. Wink wink, nudge nudge.
That is all.
Alright tweekers if you haven’t already jumped on the Instagram bandwagon then there’s no hope for you. Honestly, everyone and their mother is on it now, which means that everyone thniks they’re a photographer. Le sigh. It’s actually quite annoying. Also, I do have to say that as an iPhone user I am a bit prejudiced, and feel a little violated that the Android users can now partake in the instafun!
Anyways, amongst the pictures of food, kittens, and half naked hipster girls there are quite a couple of gems that shine brightly for fashion tweekers. Unlike most other social networking websites/apps that exist, I actually find use for the Instagram. You see, the thing is that I don’t understand why people have to constantly update their statuses or check into their waxing appointments etc. and want to share that kind of information with the world. Honestly I could care less that your hoo-hah is freshly waxed, or that your girlfriend left you for someone with a better credit score. I’ve always been a somewhat disinterested person unless it has to do with me.
As most of us know the Instagram let’s you upload pictures, and add old timey effects to them to give them that perfect vintage vibe. It’s also a great tool for us fashionistas to upload the trends that we love, as well as get style inspiration!
I’ve discovered many a great accounts that fulfill my fashion fix better than anyone could imagine. Here’s just a couple:
QPCollections (they offer handmade neckties and bow ties that I must get my hands on! )
Also, the other day I had one of my insomnia ridden Stumble Upon sessions and stumbled upon this ultra chic website called Printstagram, that lets you print out the pictures that you have on the Instagram. Now you can share those awesomely artistic pictures of your cooking, yourself holding your phone in front of the bathroom mirror, or those sunsets in many different forms. Amongst the items you can transfer your pictures onto are t-shirts, mini booklets, stickers, and old people. No not old people. I think that may be illiegal.
Anyways, I have yet to try this out, but as soon I start taking pictures of things other than my Kim Kardashian impressions I shall print something out. For more details in prices and such check out the website. Printstagram. And if any of you fashion tweekers happen to purchase any prints let us know how they turned out.
That is all.

That is all.
Hey, Society! Bigs news! For a recent collab with DynastyEvents.com, a successful promotion company in Tampa Bay, we’re sponsoring gift cards for the best dressed girl and guy at the Dynasty Events’ annual GQ party, being hosted at The Hyde Park Cafe! I’ve attached the official flyer below and I hope you’ll join myself & the rest of the Society Chic team, along with the Dynasty Events family for a fashionable night to remember! Come dressed in your best because yours truly will be a judge for the winners! You can get on the FREE guestlist by heading to DynastyEvents.com and putting yourself on Melissa San Vicente’s guestlist.
Inspired by the GQ party, and with GQ in general, we decided to compile a few looks for the night out. Along with our looks, we’ve written a few commandments that men MUST live by when dressing for the nightlife. To avoid a Debbie Downer and to reap the benefits for guaranteeing yourself in the club (as opposed to being sent home for dress code), we advise you to stick with our guidelines and they’ll never steer you wrong!
Ten Commandments of Nightlife Attire:
- Dress-up: You can never be overdressed, and if you feel out of place, at least you’re the best dressed.
- Denim: keep your denim choices limited to a dark wash and fitted/straight leg style. Colored pants are fine, depending on your outfit, so choose wisely.
- Minimize: having bulky pockets are a no-no. Keep only the essentials. Credit card, ID, spare cash in a small wallet.
- Soles: Don’t wear sneakers to a club. There’s a difference between fashion shoes and a beat-up pair of Air Force 1′s that you refuse to throw away. Also… wear flip-flops to a club and we’ll disown you.
- Smell: Don’t wear too much cologne. No one wants to be intoxicated by your fumes.
- Ties: Do experiment with ties. They aren’t only for holidays. Ties can be used as your most bold accessory. Try out a color you’ve never tried before (lavender, magenta, mustard) or a pattern that you didn’t think would be “you” (paisley, geometric prints, plaid).
- Quality: Invest in a pair of quality shoes. Find a pair that suits you best, and have those as your “go to” shoe when you have no idea what to wear.
- Keep it at the Shore: Bedazzled shirts and neon dragons (covering your tees) are out. Keep your shirts simple and ALWAYS ironed/steamed. Your look will always look more put-together with a crisp shirt.
- Bling: Don’t wear gaudy jewelry ie: big chains, overly chunky watches, golds in your mouth (unless you’re Flava Flav). Fist pumping just can’t be done if there’s a possibility of you injuring someone.
- Stay True: Have fun with your style. Look to the pages of GQ and find looks that you’d like to try out. Have a style that defines you and that makes you comfortable. Confidence is your best accessory, so if you’re not “feeling” your outfit, odds are it’ll show in your confidence.
Good Morning! Has every had their coffee this morning? Aside from needing my daily dose of caffeine (as a kid, I’d make my mom’s coffee and would taste it to make sure it was JUST right before handing it off to her. Therefore, I blame her for my slight addiction) I’m always browsing my favorite blog sites to spark a little inspiration and creativity. So, today I came across some pretty amazing photos that I wanted to share with you. From me to You is a popular photography blog I’ve been following -that I absolutely LOVE! The other day they featured these fantastic photos from Tiffany & Co. by Cinemagraph (Cinemagraph™ © 2011 Jamie Beck & Kevin Burg). When you have a chance, you’ve got to check out their website. I’m so obsessed with how the models are able to stay so still while they’re taking the photos. You almost have to sit and wait to see what is moving in the picture. So creative and daring. I hope you’ll find these images just as inspiring as I have!
A little sidenote I’ve kept in the back of my mind for some time: We all know that ideas and art don’t just come out of a can you can buy at the supermarket. Many people ask me “How do you come up with these ideas and outfits?”.. and my response is always “inspiration.” Bare in mind that we (Noche, Marti, Waffles & myself) will always try to feature things we’re loving, wearing, inspired by and the like. We never receive any kind of money for the items we feature, and if we do, we’ll be completely transparent about the relationships we hold with our partners. We just want you to love the stuff that we love -and we’re committed to doing just that. And.. well, if you don’t like it? Then that’s okay! While its wildly impossible to cater to all the masses, we hope that just one of our styles and ideas cater to at least one of you. Just something I’ve been wanting to share, because I get these questions all the time. I’m mustering up the time to come up with a quick FAQ page for all the amazingly great emails we get! So, enough of my rambling. Have a sweet Wednesday…
Oh, and remember to love a little, okay? ox - M
