    0 comments / Posted by Samantha Lee

    We are all guilty of scrolling through our Instagram feed even when we probably shouldn't be.  If you are on your Insta-game during a meeting or while watching your child's soccer game, at least make it worth it!  We are die-hard Instagram fans, if you couldn't tell by our own Instagram account, and we think we have found some of the best accounts in the business to follow.  Here are our top picks for a perfectly curated and always aesthetically pleasing Instagram feed no matter where you are!  Just double tap and go!

    Fashion and Beauty:

    @Blaireadiebee of Atlantic-Pacific has been on the fashion blogging scene for a while now, but she never fails to impress us with her sophisticated and classy style while balancing the perfect ratio of luxury and high street brands in her every day looks.  


    @Juliahengel of Gal Meets Glam truly knows how to travel in style.  A true San Francisco local, Julia's feed combines luxury, fashion, and adventures from her every day life (including beautiful flower bouquets that we can't get enough of).  


    Food:

    @Alanakysar is the mastermind behind Fix Feast Flair, an amazing food blog with some of the best recipes and photographies we have ever come across.  She has a knack for creating beautiful food as well as documenting her travels around the world and the food she encounters along the way.  Not to forget, she has an equally amazing food-blogger posse who offer even more inspiration!  Also check out @iamafoodblog and @mollyyeh for more!


    If you're more into the dining and less into the cooking (it's okay we've all been there at some point or another), check out @foodwithmichel.  If you're ever in LA, he has the guide to the most attractive foods you could ever imagine possible.  He can make a fair hot dog look amazing.  


    Travel:

    Follow @muradoosmann or search #followmeto and view Murado holding the hand of his girlfriend as they travel around the world.  Experience the Taj Mahal to the Eiffel Tower at the tips of your fingers with his outstanding photography.

  • How to be a fashionable and savvy wedding guest

    0 comments / Posted by DearMissJ Help

    I’ve reached the point in my life where I’ve gone to so many weddings that it’s becoming more
    difficult to figure out what to wear each time. I used to spend lots of money on getting
    a new dress for each wedding I went to but realized later that it wasn’t very economical.

    The older you get, the more weddings you go to, and the more important it is to budget for
    your outfit because weddings certainly aren’t cheap to attend. Here are a few tips on how to
    look fabulous as a wedding guest without burning a hole in your wallet!


    Rotate your dresses:  Who says you can only wear a dress once?
    If I’m going to spend money on a nice dress, I sure hope I will have another occasion
    to wear the dress.  Don’t be ashamed of wearing the same dress to multiple weddings.  

    A great way to change up your look is to have a different hairstyle the next time you wear
    the same dress,  carry a different handbag, or pair your dress with different accessories.  

    I love adding elegant or bold statement pieces to a dress because then you bring more
    attention to your new piece of jewelry rather than the dress you’ve already worn.  
    The large grey pearls and delicate clover pendants of 
    Troian necklace adds the perfect elegant accent to any outfit.

    Rent the Runway:  Want to look like a million bucks without having to commit to a
    pricy designer dress?  
    Rent the Runway is where you can rent designer luxury dresses for
    a fraction of the retail cost. Plus, if you’re the type who only likes to wear a dress once, this is a great option.  

    Badgley Mischka for $70? Count me in!

    Ann Taylor and J.Crew wedding collections: Retail stores like Ann Taylor and J.Crew now carry
    wedding collections which also have affordable dresses that can be worn to any wedding, whether
    you’re a bridesmaid or wedding guest.  I recently attended a wedding wearing a dress I purchased from the
    Ann Taylor wedding collection and received lots of compliments on it.

    People were under the impression I had spent a lot on a designer dress only to learn that it was from Ann Taylor.
    I must say I was proud of myself =)

    Borrow from a friend.  Chances are, your friends also probably have a closet of dresses they’ve worn
    to wedding themselves.  You should figure out which one of your friends are the closest in
    size to you and ask them if you can borrow a dress.  That’s what friends are for right?

    Accessories can make or break any outfit you have in your wardrobe. Jewelry (not being bias of course) is

    just a few words to describe the different types of jewelry.

    Our DearMissJ pieces fit that bill and way more.
    We want to show how versatile and all around stylish the pieces in our collection are.
