#MomPicks by Garish Momma

My Mom wears Garish Gal almost every single day. Sometimes she will open Garish Gal shipments for me and take what she wants! The worst part is she forgets to tell me! Don’t worry, I eventually catch her and make her pay just like everyone else!

My Mom is my best friend and inspiration. She has shattered the glass ceiling time and time again. She has been my business sounding board. She even opens and hangs up Garish Gal shipments when she knows I am overwhelmed. She is a strong bad ass boss lady and I am fortunate she has raised me with the confidence to be the same. But she is more than just a boss lady, she also been there for every break up, every failure, every fight, and every single time I have needed her. Even 2am sobbing phone calls, or angered rants where I just word vomit endlessly. I honestly don’t know what I would do without her.

So it only seemed fitting that I let her tell you what she wants for Mother’s Day, because after all it is her day and who knows what a mom wants better than my mom! Without further ado, Gals Meet my Momma Carol Talbert!

As Mother’s Day approaches, Maggie asked me to share my favorite pieces available at Garish Gal.  I have several favorite spring pieces that I love and I have my eye on…  Many times the clothes arrive when Maggie is traveling so I get to open the new arrivals and put them on hangers for her.  Some of my favs never make it to the Boutique.   I snatch up my size right away and tell her that her shipment was short one size large in that item.  She then kindly bills me for the missing item!  Others of my favorites I watch closely to see if they are purchased or not.  I like to give them 2 – 3 weeks and if no one has purchased my size, then it is fair game for me to purchase! 

My most recent favorite is one I have been waiting on since she posted it when she was at market to place her orders.  I love this jacket!  It fits perfect.  It works great for rainy and/or spring chilly days like we have had this week.  This jacket came in earlier this past week when Maggie was traveling.  I grabbed my size and wore it the next day!  It will transition perfectly to early summer cool mornings and nights with the shoulder and side venting.  There are several new items that are my favs from the shipments last week that are only available currently in the Garish Gal Mobile Boutique.  (Look for the Galaxy Girl Long Sleeve Flowered top- you will love it!)**This top will launch on the website NEXT Tuesday!**

Of course, I always love the Kimonos that Garish Gal carries.  I have my eye on a new black Kimono in stock… (I already have a green one that I wear year round.)   I also have my eye on the BB Dakota Butler Cozi Cardi and the BB Dakota Lamour Fringe Cardigan.   These are always great pieces to help transition any outfit from day to night.

I don’t wear dresses very often but Garish Gal has talked me into the Summer nights BB Dakota Beah printed Maxi Dress.   It is both flowing and flattering.  I have plenty of wedding and summer events this year, so I need more pieces like this in my closet.

I am hooked on the Black Spanx Leggins!   They are AMAZING. ** These will be back in stock for the Fall!**

For day to day wear, I have so many favorite blouses from Garish Gal.  My two current favs are the BB Dakota Brando Printed Blouse and the Lace Long Sleeve white Tunic.  The tanks available at Garish Gal are endless!  I love the Chambray Ruffle Tank and the Ash Tunic Tank!  Garish Gal has a Navy Cute Cropped Blouse that transcends Spring into Summer!  I love it with hot pink earrings!

I can’t forget jewelry too!  I have the black Arrowhead necklace and the Arrowhead bangle.  I wear the Grey Stud Earrings almost every day.    My favorite LipSense Glossy Gloss is Heartbreaker!

Garish Gal’s grandmother proudly wears several pieces from the Boutique.  Her favs are always jackets-  BB Dakota Carnation Black Pleather; BB Dakota Yohan Light Grey Jacket; and the Lush Olive Green Zipper Jacket.    She even wears the BB Dakota Leggings!

How do I say this politically correct…, you don’t have to be under 35 years old to enjoy shopping and wearing items from Garish Gal!   Garish Gal has items that Maggie wears but are also still appropriate for me or her grandma to wear.  It is all in what you pair it with and how you carry it off.    Remember, the inspiration for Garish Gal, Great, Great Aunt Rosemary, lived well into her 80’s.  She never got too old to always have a flair of Garish in her closet to set her outfit apart! 

If you are not sure how to wear an item or what to pair it with, ask Garish Gal!  She will be very helpful and honest with you on how to dress for your style!    

I am extremely proud of my Garish Gal, Maggie, and her drive for success.   Her brand is selling “Fashion with a Future” through donating a percent of the proceeds from her sales to benefit 501 organizations supporting the education for young women.   I know my purchases not only support Garish Gal but I am also aiding organizations that help provide education to a young girl that may not otherwise have that opportunity. 

So this year, ask for Garish Gal for Mother’s Day!  You will not only be rocking a great look but you will also be giving back to help a young girl learn to read and write!   Happy Mother’s Day to you and to the women in your life!  Celebrate them with love!

All my love to you my sweet Baby Girl and Beautiful young woman!  I will always love you to the moon and back!     Keep following your dream and passion!    Garish Mom

Derby Looks To Love

Being in the Midwest, the Kentucky Derby is a HUGE event! I went last year for the first time and had an absolute blast! Needless to say, I will be going back again this year! The hardest part is coming up with a cute, fun, and unique outfit to wear with a matching hat!

Here are some great looks to love  +  fun hats that can complete your ensemble!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is my look from last year <3…the Mint Julep & Oaks Lily signature Derby drinks are a must have! (If you are of age!!)

My dress was Clover Canyon that my mom had surprised me with a year earlier. I loveeeeed this dress! So comfortable, beautiful colors, and perfect for Spring at the Derby!

One of my best friends (and her husband) helped me make my fascinator! I had a specific example I wanted to emulate, but couldn’t find it to purchase. My friend convinced me that we could easily make it and I must say we did a good job! It was HUGE and kept falling off my small head, but it fit in at the Derby.

I decided to wear sandals because I knew I would be walking around and socializing more than sitting! We started our day at 7am and it didn’t end until around 10pm! I must say wearing sandals was honestly the best choice I made! Some girls that rocked heels were dying by midday!

I went with some of my girls I played college golf with! It was a blast reuniting away from the golf course and getting dressed up together!
