Long time no see. Excited to be back this week and ready to visit with you. I have so much to share with you all! Lots going on around Glamour Farms! I will begin with our recent trip, a cruise to the Eastern Caribbean.
Mom, Elizabeth, and I were all very fortunate to be able to go on this trip with our cousin Mia and her entire Preferred Events staff. We were on Royal Caribbean, Oasis of the Seas, which is one of the biggest ships made. Our ports of call were Bahamas, St. Thomas, and St. Maarten. All Caribbean Islands are stunning to me, but I would have to say St. Maarten was my favorite. Breathtaking views. I am a beach lover, I absolutely LOVE water...crystal blue water. I can sit for hours and just stare at God's amazing work. It had been years since I had been on a trip where I could actually relax. And this trip was just what the doctor ordered...pure relaxation, tons of laughter, and most importantly...quality family time. It was mom, Elizabeth, my mom's sister Sue, her daughter Mia, and Mia's husband Michael. I cannot put words to how much fun we had together. We belly laughed until our insides ached...I had not relaxed and let go like that in forever. So needed. I love family time and love my people.
In normal "Stephanie Fashion", I waited until the last second to pack. The morning we were to leave, I started gathering....I began in my own closet with no luck whatsoever, so panic set in. Yes, we own a store, and have clothes all around us, but we had been so busy I had not even had a chance to pay attention to what had came in and had no clue if we even had anything in that would work for me/my body type/or the cruise. At 3:30 (the day we were leaving) I ran to the store with my exchange daughter as my "clothing critic" and grabbed as fast as I could. And I am not even kidding you when I say this...I WAS SHOCKED...I was shocked because I am a very hard fit. Very hard, and I had not tried on any of our new Spring Merchandise. Everything I tried on fit like a glove. It was a "THANK YOU JESUS" moment. We have worked so hard on the fit of our clothing and I think we NAILED IT with our Spring and Summer line. I had so many choices, I had to put many things back...which is so unusual for me. I still had 3 suitcases...hahaha! Anyway, I am going to share with you the things I wore that got the most compliments. I, like most women, am very hard on myself, and am always humbled and taken aback when someone compliments me. On the cruise, I had groups of ladies stopping me asking me about my outfits, HUMBLED. This tells me that all of blood, sweat, and tear hours we put in to making our Spring line has paid off. People are liking it. I love it so much. It is comfortable, fits perfect, and is trendy...all what we strive for.
I wore this dress to dinner on one of the dressier nights. I styled it with a nude wedge and lots of gold jewelry. I seriously could have sold this dress off of me at least 50 times. I think it drew so much attention due to the vibrant green color and detail in the crochet work in sleeves.

This is a dress, but I used it as my bathing suit cover up. It was perfect for that. And again, had many compliments on it! I styled it with a strappy sandal and gold earrings.

I styled this top just like this picture of Brittany and then the next day I used it as my swimsuit cover up. And I am not kidding you...this top seems so simple, but I had A TON of ladies stop and ask me where I got it. I think the ruffles on it just give it that little extra "umph" to make it stand out. AND IT IS SO SOFT! And very flattering. (this top comes in other colors and it has been an excellent seller for us...many have ended up buying all colors)
