hi every family it's mel chief of stores
00:10
for every i am back in the fitting room
00:11
with you today i am in illinois oak
00:14
brook mall our new oakbrook location
00:16
these are beautiful dressing rooms um
00:19
and it is a balmy four degrees outside
00:22
uh so i am going to talk to you a little
00:24
bit today about transitional dressing
00:26
this is just one of the hardest times of
00:28
the year especially for those of us that
00:30
live in the midwest for what the heck
00:32
are we going to wear
00:33
so today i'm going to talk to you about
00:34
denim and some basic tees to layer into
00:37
your wardrobe that you can kind of layer
00:39
up whether that is a jacket you know
00:41
inside or just a big bomber coat as you
00:44
go outside but just some easy peasy
00:46
pieces to put together so i want to talk
00:48
to you today about a gold e jeans if you
00:50
are in need of a jean
00:52
refresh i actually am kind of feeling
00:54
like that myself right now and you want
00:56
to add a nice straight leg jean to your
00:59
wardrobe i highly recommend a golde a
01:02
goldie premium denim at a really
01:04
accessible price point um and i love the
01:07
fit and especially if you are a curvy
01:09
gal
01:11
this is a pair i want you to think about
01:12
so this is the nico this is the neko mid
01:15
rise and the reason i want to show you
01:17
this one i'm going to show you a
01:18
mid-rise i'm going to show you a
01:19
high-rise i really this is my favorite
01:21
mid-rise that we have in the store right
01:23
now
01:24
and it's also got a lot of stretch to it
01:27
so a lot of straight leg jeans are
01:29
pretty firm these days and this one has
01:31
great stretch which i think is good for
01:33
any body type especially for curvy gals
01:36
this is a good one for you it still is
01:38
an ankle but i'm hearing a lot
01:40
especially if you live in the midwest
01:41
that we're worried about our ankles
01:42
right now and this one's quite long i'm
01:45
5'7 and you can see with this little
01:47
sneaker i'll tell you about later
01:49
it's skimming right at the top of my
01:50
sneaker so if you're wanting something a
01:52
smidge longer this is a great one for
01:55
you
01:56
no deconstruction
01:57
there is a raw hem let me like kick it
01:59
up for you here a little bit there's a
02:01
raw hem but there's no deconstruction
02:03
throughout the top so again if you're
02:05
worried about chilly knees right now you
02:06
don't have to worry about that and then
02:08
the color is great this is i think going
02:10
to pick up a little harder on video but
02:12
it's a washed black the color code when
02:14
you look it up if you're shopping online
02:16
or looking in a store is feral
02:18
it's just a washed out black but just
02:21
love these love these so much stretch
02:23
and then you know pair it back to a
02:24
simple tee i think
02:26
my thought about jan feb is keep it
02:28
simple and so this is our bobby split
02:31
neck tee we've carried bobby t's for a
02:33
long time but i love this one it's got
02:35
kind of a long little
02:37
wrist sleeve here
02:39
no real puff but it does have a drop
02:41
sleeve goes down past your shoulder
02:43
again that little split and then what i
02:45
love about this for this time of year is
02:47
this little banded top you don't have to
02:49
do anything fancy no front tucks nothing
02:51
fancy but it's got great coverage
02:53
all the way around and then this one on
02:56
the color on this is outcast so you've
02:58
got kind of a washed out gray with your
03:00
washed out black and then for
03:01
accessories
03:03
not only do i think a great little
03:05
sneaker
03:06
but if you're out running around you can
03:08
layer this over
03:10
this or over your coat but you know i
03:12
love these little think royal and bum
03:14
bags so we still have these in stock
03:17
great little easy i throw mine in the
03:19
wash
03:20
i wore the heck out of it through summer
03:21
so i throw it in the wash and it just
03:23
washes up beautifully
03:25
adjustable straps so i've got on just
03:27
kind of a high cross body you can adjust
03:29
that you can wear it to a lower cross
03:31
body or there's actually another small
03:33
strap and you can wear it truly right
03:36
around your waist so a lot of options
03:37
with this bag i love it great little
03:39
front pocket for your cell phone
03:41
i've just been so happy with mine i now
03:43
have
03:44
three
03:45
i do i have three okay other accessories
03:48
love these p448 new sneakers this is the
03:51
fiat
03:52
and thea is super clean white a little
03:55
bit of gray on the top here black banded
03:58
bottom
03:59
and just super clean and easy but what i
04:01
love about her right now she's got a
04:03
little bit of a
04:04
platform bottom to this so it's super
04:07
comfortable but it also gives you a
04:09
little bit of height so not quite into a
04:11
high top sneaker but you've still got
04:13
that little elevation kind of covering
04:15
up the ankles and then super super easy
04:17
accessories i don't know about you but
04:19
jam fab makes me think about getting
04:20
back into my silver so this is a little
04:23
bralea chain necklace that we have super
04:25
simple and easy
04:27
and then this little earring is just a
04:29
little midi hoop and it's part of an
04:31
earring pack called the logan and i love
04:34
showing you these because they're such a
04:36
bargain for 38
04:38
you get the little midi hoop that i have
04:39
on in the middle do you want to go a
04:41
little fancier you got a little drop
04:43
there chain and then just a nice little
04:45
stud if you want something simple or if
04:47
you have a double piercing you could do
04:49
a little layering with that stud 38
04:51
dollars i love these so there you go
04:54
mid-rise a goldie the me go let me
04:56
change outfits i'll get in the high rise
04:58
and talk to you about that okay more
04:59
knits more jeans all right let's start
05:01
with these jeans
05:03
hey goldie love you love you for the
05:05
curvy gal okay so i showed you the nico
05:08
that was a mid-rise this is the riley
05:10
she is a high rise okay so that mid came
05:13
about an inch below my belly button this
05:15
high rise comes kind of right at my
05:17
belly button i know some of you are die
05:19
hard mid-rise and i get it but i tell
05:21
you going from my mid and then putting
05:23
my high rise back on i don't know these
05:25
just love me in all the right places i
05:26
feel all hugged in and it feels real
05:29
real good so again the difference this
05:31
is a high rise um obviously the wash
05:33
this is going back to a really
05:35
traditional kind of medium wash it's
05:37
coded is i think called shiver
05:39
when you look that up online and so just
05:41
super traditional again no
05:42
deconstruction not even a raw hem i've
05:45
got a little high top sneaker on so i
05:47
did a little
05:48
kind of messy cuff there at the bottom
05:51
it is an ankle but again it runs pretty
05:53
long and so with this one i put it on
05:56
with a high top sneaker again so if you
05:58
are in cold weather that's my
06:00
recommendation you know don't stray away
06:02
from your ankles just get them a little
06:04
bit smidge longer and wear them back to
06:07
a little bit of a high top or a booty
06:09
something that covers the ankle and
