The total value of the donated weddings is $40,000.

Guess Who's Back..... Très Chic Style Returns!

Greetings Fabulous Ones,

Stay tuned as we continue the tradition of delivering the BEST in fashion,  beauty and lifesyle news.

In Chic Review: Disney's Planes: Fire & Rescue

The second installment of Disney's Planes franchise starts its first frame with a tribute to the thousands of fire, rescue and first responders who place their lives in danger for the masses.  A fitting introduction for a motion picture that is a roller coaster ride from beginning to the very end.  Dane Cook returns as the high flying cropdusting-turned-speed racing world champion Dusty along with an equally impressive cast of A-list hollywood voice talent that on Disney could amass.  

Planes: Fire and Rescue is a must see summer 3D spectacle that will have kids of all ages on the edge of their theater seats.  In the first Planes installment we watched Dusty go from a common cropduster plane with dreams of RSN  fame, to becoming an overnight avaiation sensation.  In Fire and Rescue, Dusty finds himself back in his hometown facing a possible end to his racing days and a career change as a firefighter in order to save the town's airport and annual corn festival.  

Dusty invites a new cast of characters to the Planes audience, as he embarks on his intense training to become an aerial forest firefighter at a local national park.  Without giving away the film's plot and all of its fancy flight scenes, (which were pretty realistic for an animated film) Dusty learns not only how to save a life, but how to save his hometown and himself in the process.  Most importantly, in Fire and Rescue, Dusty truly learns what it means to be a selfless hero above being a celebrity.

Disney Planes: Fire & Rescue is the perfect summer family film.

Juicy Couture Closes It's Doors


Bidding farewell to a beloved brand is never easy...

Juicy Couture will have closed all U.S. locations by the end of June. The once celebrity-adored label ends an era of trendy terrycloth and velour sweatpants and zip-ups.

The trendy lounge wear was made famous with the help of stars like Paris Hilton and Britney Spears. The chic velour tracksuits stole the hearts of many tweens and young women alike. Many retailers are offering discounts of up to 90% to rid their shelves of the merchandise, while Kohls has inked a deal to sell Juicy Couture through the Fall season.


Kerry Washington's Scandal Style Inspires a Fashion Collection at The Limited


Get your popcorn and red wine ready....

This fall, fans of Kerry Washington’s "Olivia Pope" character on ABC’s hit political drama “Scandal” will be able to watch and shop for some of her on-air looks at The Limited this Fall.



In an interview earlier this week, the Emmy-nominated actress  Kerry Washington said, “People who love the look of the show can now step into this world in a way that is affordable and accessible because not everybody can afford to have the clothes they see on the show.”



Fashionistas adore Olivia's wide-leg trousers, chic blouses, subtle yet elegant accessories and her signature outerwear that leaves us all swooning.
The Scandal collection is a collaboration with the show’s costume designer Lyn Paolo and The Limited’s head of design Elliot Staples.



Reconfiguring the traditional on-screen celebrity tie-in, this unique deal is said to be the first merging a national retailer, a leading network show, its costume designer and marquee actress.

While Olivia Pope will not solely wear The Limited Scandal collection on the show, the collection will be one that Paolo pulls from.


With retail prices ranging from $49 to $248, the 42-piece collection will land in 250 Limited mall-based stores and on the retailer’s Web site in late September.
When it comes to Fall fashion.... "It's been handled".

Chic Father's Day Find: Give Dad The Gift of Walmart Family Mobile Unlimited Talk/Text and Data Web Plans


I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for Collective Bias and its advertiser.

And now for the good stuff.....



With dad's big day just days away it's time to get thinking and shopping. Dad's adore the kamikaze style ties and golf shirts but why not deliver a gift he'll love?

 

Walmart Family Mobile has made shopping for dad so simple this year with the lowest priced unlimited Walmart Best Plans. Plans are tailored to fit dad's specific mobile needs.  Finally dad can bid farewell to overage charges and expensive mobile phone bills.




The Dish: I was recently afforded the opportunity to give the Walmart Mobile plans a whirl. As a lover of of all things "tech chic", I decided to preview the Alcatel One Touch Evolve Phone.



What I liked about it: Value is always key in the "Chic Life", so at a comfortable price point of $75 (74.88 to be exact), it felt like a steal. The Alcatel is sleek, modern and super easy to program. As I researched this phone I couldn't help but notice the recent popularity of the Alcatel brand.

The phone is affordable,  has amazing sound quality and is comparable to higher priced phones. The Alcatel One Touch Evolve easily fits into the palm of your hand and makes texting a breeze. The 13 hour talk time on a single charge is an added benefit when you're a busy fashionista on the go.



The Walmart Family Mobile Plans start at $29.88 and include unlimited talk and text.




Why It Makes The Perfect Gift For Dad: Dad's want to be brought into the 21st Century.  They want to connect with their children and ultimately be the "hip, cool dad". Like who can really resist a random "LOL" from their dad. The phones and features allow your dad to scroll your Facebook, embarass you with baby photos and the occasional tweet.


Snag Dad's (And Yours) at your neighborhood Walmart. All Walmart Family Mobile Plans and phones are located in the electronics department. A knowledgeable Walmart electronics associate is always available to assist you with any questions regarding mobile phone purchases.  They can help you set it up and program the device as well..

In Chic Events: Jaime King, Chris Noth, Brittny Gastineau and More Celebrate the Annual Simon G. Soiree in Las Vegas



Last night Tres Chic Style had the privelege to attend one of the swankiest yearly events in Las Vegas. For yet another fabulous year master jeweler Simon G. and his lovely family hosted a fête like no other.



Simon and his wife Sylvia are always gracious host and make each guest feel like a member of their extended family. While chatting with Sylvia I discovered this yearly event is their personal way of saying thank you to their loyal customers. Their customers eccompass a unique mix of domestic and international jewelry store owners, buyers and stylist.

Sylvia said "During JCK you want to see everyone and sometimes you can't invite everyone to dinner, so this party makes it easier to connect with everyone and show our appreciation".

After congratulating Simon on his 2014 JCK awards and nominations (sidenote: he normally sweeps them all), I asked him about his new fashion forward collections and his departure from traditional. "The economy is changing and my customers are looking for luxury pieces. Jewelry makes everyone feel good and gorgeous pieces represent an extension of one's personality. Customer's are splurging a little more and we're delivering collections to make them smile a little".

The evening included a celeb filled roster of guest including Sex & The City's "Mr. Big" and current govenor of "The Good Wife", Chris Noth. Guest and paparazzi swooned over Brother & Sister's resident heart throb Giles Marini, DWTS Cheryl Burke, Mark Ballas, Heather McDonald, Brittny & Lisa Gastineau, Melissa Rycroft & Tye Strickland, who were all seen wearing their favorite Simon G. Jewelry pieces and mingled with the crowd and sipped on specialty drinks before watching a special poolside stage performance by 70's legend Michael Mcdonald and everyone's favorite Doobie Brother.

About Simon G. 

Simon Ghanimian grew up with parents that handed down the values of honest, hard work to all their children. Simon was raised with the simple philosophy that if you could build something with your hands, you'd never go hungry.

This philosophy led to his start in making jewelry. And before long, what started as a hobby became a passion.

After a few years Simon made the journey from Beirut to Los Angeles, where he decided to open his own business. But when I went to register at City Hall, the clerk told him that his name was too long.

And that's the day Simon Ghanimian became Simon G.

In the beginning, it was just Simon and his wife Sylvia. Currently the company employs 60 people, with designers from all around the world. And their gorgeous collections are sold in over 900 locations worldwide. 

Disney Puts Us Under a Spell With Malificent

Angelina Jolie never made bad look so good.  In the Disney fairy tale universe, stories like Sleepy Beauty have always been told with clear cut heroes and villians.  

Maleficent is not so black and white in its character delvelopment...which is quite refreshing actually.  Only an actress with the subtle comedic nuances, coupled with rich dramatic depths possessed by Jolie, could so effortlessly pull off the role of the sympethetic villan who experiences a Dickens like Scrooge change of heart even before the film's end.  

Maleficent also features Jolie's own daughter Vivianne as young Princess Aurora, who was casted in the brief role primarily because she was the only child who could bare to see Jolie in full Maleficent regalia (horns and all).


Disney's Maleficent is a must see for all ages.  

My only critique is with Disney's choice to go with a traller that was much darker than the movie itself.  While I woildnt recommend the film for childrem under the ages of 6, my 9 year old son (soon to be 10 in two weeks) absolutely loved Maleficent and felt most kids in his age range would as well.  Tres Chic Style gives Maleficent 4 out 5 stars and believes that Jolie may very well have Oscar gold in her fairy tale future...for playing Disney's most unlikely heroine ever.

The Weekend Of Chic: Kim Kardashian Preps For Vogue, Joe Namath Dazzles In Fur And Solange Knowles Slays


When Kim Kardashian Instagrams the world stops and listens... Well in Kris's head anyways. 
Over the weekend the Kardashian powerhouse revealed her brunette locks with the caption "I'm Back" to her millions of followers. Since the birth of North West Kim has been rocking touselled blond tresses along with her new signature "midriff" looks *Insert Side-Eye Here*


Rumors have been swirling about the possibilities of Kim landing a Vogue cover. Multiple sources have revealed her fiancé and fellow fashion compadre Kanye West has been pestering (yes, we said pestering) Anna Wintour for quite some time about the possibility of Kim gracing the coveted fashion publication. Reports are circling the new brunette look is in preparation for her long awaited photo shoot.... With Vogue! 


Aside from Alyssa Milano and her football apparel line "Touch" there's never rally been a fusion of fashion and the Super Bowl. Last night in front of million of adoring fans and a few PETA folks, Hall of Famer Joe Namath donned a fox jacket for the coin toss. Twitter immediately erupted and PETA eventually got in on the action with a few tweets of their own. 


Unbeknownst to many Namath, 70, has been a fan of furs since his heyday in the 1960s, often photographed on the sidelines wearing luxurious minks and foxes. 


This style chameleon knows as Solange Knowles never fails to keep us amazed at her impeccable sense of style. The younger sister of Beyonce has come into her own and proves she is the REAL deal when it comes to fashion (Take notes Beyonce). This weekend for the big game Solange stepped onto the blue carpet for a Bud Light event delivering us Diana Ross glam. Her retro inspired "Fro" was the perfect accessory to her chic and casual look. We see you Solange!

In Chic Vegas News: Vegas Prepares To Welcome The Cromwell


                                    

Masterfully positioned at the intersection of Flamingo Road and Las Vegas Boulevard sits the former home Bill's Gambling Hall. Named after Harrah's  founder and pioneer Bill Harrah. Amidst a few hiccups in the construction phase the iconic structure in center of the Las Vegas strip has officially been christened The Cromwell. 
Still under construction, the boutique hotel’s name foreshadows its sophisticated vibe and lavish aesthetic. As the newest luxury lifestyle boutique hotel and casino on the Strip, The Cromwell is poised to raise the stakes.

                           



                                   

  • $185 million renovation, owned and operated by Caesars Entertainment
  • 188 rooms and suites
  • 169 hotel rooms are reminiscent of Parisian loft-style apartments with distressed hardwood flooring and vintage luggage motif furnishings
  • Lighting recalls French provincial styling
  • Black and white mosaic tiled shower walls act as the canvas for miscellaneous English-French phrases
  • Unique and interesting luggage truck style furniture
  • Full length mirror and plush seating

HOTEL DESIGN
The Cromwell will blend vintage with modern, drawing inspiration from the Coste Hotel in Paris with black Parisian-style awnings and gold fixtures adorning the windows. From the moment guests enter from the Porte Cochere, a boutique hotel experience that blends traditional elements with Parisian flare and whimsical, modern details awaits. 
The hotel lobby is reminiscent of a parlor from the past; accessories and bookshelves adorned with leather bound books clad the walls.

The Cromwell is scheduled to open this Spring, (just in time for patio dining and pool season, of course.) Total Rewards members can book a room starting Feb. 21. Three days later,  rooms are available to the general public. Everyone is encouraged to sign up to stay on top of the latest Cromwell news.
                                      

Giada De Laurentiis and Victor Drai are star anchors, and construction is well underway on Giada's two-story restaurant masterpiece and Drai's three daylife/nightlife venues.
Chef and Food Network celebrity De Laurentiis will debut her Italian recipe favorites in a beautiful, airy dining room which she says will feature an antipasto bar. With warm colors and natural lighting thanks to huge Strip-front windows, she’s currently previewing dishes and designing the breakfast, lunch and dinner menus. Drai will launch his cult favorite Drai’s After Hours (temporarily moved to Bally’s for now), along with his first-ever beach club and adjoining nightclub space - on the hotel’s roof, no less.

In Chic Fashion News: Sarah Jessica Parker SJP Shoe Collection Unveiled....


Sex and the City devotees the wait is finally over! Our resident fashionista Sarah Jessica Parker (always Carrie Bradshaw in my head) has finally unveiled her entire SJP shoe collection. The vibrant collection  launches exclusively at Nordstrom on February 28th at selected Nordstrom locations and on-line.
The colourful and stunning offerings deliver a homage to Parker's feminine style. Each shoe comes complete with grosgrain ribbon detail on every style. The unique detail is a reference to the actress's childhood. 
Styles range from elegant T-bars and metallic stilettos to suede flip-flops and espadrille wedges, with prices starting at $195.

"I've taken inspiration from things in my life such as the grosgrain ribbons I tied in my hair as a girl, to the flower accents from the Sex and the City wardrobe to references to classic styles from the late Seventies and early Eighties," said Parker. "I'm a firm believer in quality and timelessness and have created this collection with the hopes that women will love wearing it for years to come."
Sarah Jessica Parker and George Malkemus, president of Manolo Blahnik USA.

The collection also features a selection of handbags and trench coats. The Sex and the City star first announced she was launching her own line in June last year, choosing to collaborate with George Malkemus, CEO of Manolo Blahnik - the label that, as Carrie Bradshaw, she helped put firmly on the fashion map. 

While this is not SJP's first foray into fashion, it's the most exciting launch to date. In 2008 Parker collaborated with retailer Steve & Barry to crete the coveted "Bitten" clothing line where all items were sold under $20. The demand and success of the line was huge until the retailer filed bankruptcy and eventually closed all stores.
