9-5 iStyle File February 11 2014

When I started working in finance in 2008, there were no blogs or awesome TV shows like Scandal that helped me adjust to fashion in the workplace. Now you can always find me trolling a blog such as the work fashion blog Forbes Style File.

If you have ever wondered if leopard, candy red peep-toe pumps, or magenta blazers can fly under the radar without a trip to HR, thanks to Tumblr, Pinterest + Instagram there are some amazing pages out there to help you get the tips you need.

I also follow What Courtney Wore for high/low fashion, Mizhattan for luxe inspiration, and The Working Wordrobe, and Jaclyn Day for casual/weekend looks. 

Until next time,

Glam for the Holidays + New Year's Eve December 15 2013

Glam Girls,

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Have you received lots of party and event invitations? Stick with me and I'll show you how to pick out the best hairstyle, makeup, and a dress you feel fantastic in.


Step 1: Choose your dress or outfit: If it is in your closet, dryclean it. If you don't have what you want to wear, hop on Rent the Runway to select a dress and have it delivered before your event. It's that easy.


Step 2:  Hair: Book your blowout or updo appointment. Even better: ask a girlfriend who is great at hair to come over and curl yours.


Step 3: Makeup: Select your makeup style ahead of time. Some of the blow dry bars even through in faux lashes, or custom eye-makeup as an add on to your hairstyle package. A friend of mine likes to go to the makeup counters at the department store and purchase a lipstick or eyeliner in exchange for having a mini-makeover.


Step 4:...

The weather is cooling off and it is time to stash your swimsuits, cover-ups, and sandals. Do you have your fall essentials in order? Classics for fall include pencil skirts, turtlenecks, scarves, skinny jeans, and boots. Now, mix in some trends which you probably already have: leopard, leather, and peplum tops.  Emerald green is sure to be the big color of the season so you may want to pick up some accessories in that color.  

Add Some Jazzy Jewels

Since oxblood...

Nautical looks have been popping up all over the place this spring. It is inspired by the sea, and offers a clean, classic, and tailored look.

Tis’ the season to be sparkly! This gift guide is made for the glam girl, who loves our website and all things fabulous, so if you know her, make sure to hurry and grab these jewelry pieces before they are gone!

Glam Guide: What to wear for Thanksgiving! November 22 2012


From Traci, Glam Grab Fashionista: Happy Thanksgiving! … what a fabulous excuse to show off some Fall fashion! Curious what to wear? Whether you celebrate lounging around with family watching football all day, or by having a formal, sit-down dinner, some glam jewelry can be just the right finishing touch to the perfect holiday outfit. I have chosen some of my favorite pieces for this fall, with hues of tan, gold, and brown... and a pop of coral to add some spice. For the more chill get-togethers (like my family's) I recommend wearing something comfy and casj - a v-neck tee or the trendy, soft chambray shirt (shown here from Madewell), paired with leggings and my ultimate staple - Frye riding boots. For jewelry, I'm all about mixing hard and soft textures - the Glam Grab Marina Bay Rope and Chain Necklace fits the bill for this look. For more elegant affairs, I recommend a flirty, color-block dress (love this one from J.Crew)...

Appletini anyone? November 07 2012

We're in love with our new, exclusive Kate Cocktail necklace! 

This look is so right now - preppy babes, pair this necklace with a denim oxford shirt and ballet flats... edgier gals, wear it with a chunky sweater and leather leggings this Fall!

Love it! Grab our Kate Cocktail Necklace (only $38!) and stay glamorous!

It's 5 o'clock somewhere, right?

Behind the Scenes: Glam Grab Photoshoot Balloon-gate from our model, Mia October 30 2012

 Behind the Scenes: Glam Grab Make-it-Mint Photo Shoot 


Beautiful, crisp early autumn, decked out in glam and larger-than-life balloons... just another day in downtown Dallas! I was preparing to model some of our newest jewelry and had even recruited one of my good friends to take part in the shoot with me. We wanted some extra pop for our photos, and decided on these giant baby blue balloons! You think that getting them to fit into my car and driving to the shoot with them was the most difficult (and probably dangerous) part of the process, but I proved myself wrong when I was given the responsibility of holding onto them to making sure they didn't fly away... Of course, with my luck, the balloons let themselves loose in the wind after just a few shots. The only good thing that came from this was the collection of pictures of my reaction... enjoy! xoxo Mia
