Loungewear, Cover Ups, and Gym Shorts?

Erin Braxton has it all and then some! The most amazing fabrics, styles, and ways to be cute AND comfortable can be found in her line. She has graciously decided to team up with Aesthetic Design Style in order to bring more attention to her vision and expand her brand into other areas of the country. We are honored to help and so excited to push her out in front of our independent fashion revolution.

The best sellers in Erin's line happen to be the Knotted Chemise, the Hoody Tunic, and the Gym Short (which are just ADORABLE!) Not only are these pieces great for around the house but you can run to the grocery in them and no one will look at you twice (only in a good way because you look so hot in them!) or even know it is "loungewear". Unlike your usual snowman pajama pants, fuzzy slippers, and grandmother's robe - please don't! Her cover ups are perfect for the beach or any resort and a few pieces can even be worn as ready-to-wear - The Kimono Wrap Robe is so fantastic I can't even tell you! There are never ending situations or occasions you can wear Erin Braxton. It is so versatile and beautiful that you feel good just hanging out on your very own patio.

I do have to warn you though - you may develop very high self confidence and perhaps a bit of arrogance wearing her designs so watch out for a lot of attention coming your way!

Until then: “The dress must follow the body of a woman, not the body following the shape of the dress.” - Hubert de Givenchy

Independent Designers Putting "You" First

Being alloted the freedom to customize fashion lets you put your own special spin on the look you want to portray. Independent designers are taking that to heart and modeling their lines after this concept.

Chic Gems etc. has just launched a new line of "Design Your Own" gems just for you. YOU are the designer and YOU get exactly what YOU want! There is the Custom Pearl & Crystal Necklace Collection, the Custom Pearl & Chain Necklace Collection, the Custom Triple Floating Pearl Necklace Collection, and the Custom Pearl & Crystal Bracelet collection! This is a fun way to design something for yourself or for a gift for someone else - especially if you have a friend who is "so hard to buy for"!

Evlove Intimates is another fantastic line that you can design around what YOU really want. Intimate apparel is, well, intimate so it is nice to be able to choose the style, fabric, trim, and accessories that you are in love with and work with your body for the best fit. And, again, it is FUN! There are literally hundreds of combinations you can create using your own imagination.

I hosted a bachelorette party for one of my girlfriends and had Evlove Intimates there as well. We felt so important and had a blast designing our own "undies" and loungewear as well. Then two weeks later my own little creation showed up in the mail and it was like getting a special gift all over again.

So, you don't like to see yourself coming and going around town? THIS is the way to go! If there is that dress you have been searching all over to accessorize or if you have a big anniversary coming up and you want to put your husband's initials somewhere only he will see then you can do that! Visit Chic Gems etc. and Evlove Intimates today and bring out the inner designer in you.

Until Then: “All I want is the best of everything and there's very little of that left” - Cecil Beaton
