Labor Day Dreams and Beyond!

Dear Fashion Friends:

Labor Day weekend is almost here! AC has some great ideas about how to spruce up your wardrobe for the upcoming holiday! They also have some excellent suggestions as to what to wear for the autumn months.

I am sure that you will be spending some of your time on the beach or by the swimming pool. How about this enchanting two-piece swimsuit (see below)?  I love its purple design pattern. They say, dear Fashion Friends, that purple “represents meanings of wealth, extravagance, creativity, wisdom, dignity, grandeur, devotion, peace, pride, mystery, independence, and magic.” There is something magical about this lovely piece of swimwear!

Or how about this one-piece swimsuit (see below)? Its fabric is from polyester and spandex, and it comes in a variety of colors, including black, blue, and green. What I love most of all is its v-neck design. Very sensual!

After swimming, I imagine that you will have a party or two to attend. You will need something chic and stylish to wear! How about this summer dress (see below)? A delightful array of color, including green, pink, red, and yellow! And the tropical theme is enthralling.

Or how about this blouse (see below)? Chic and stylish! This piece is not just perfect for Labor Day, but for any occasion! What I also love is our model's sense of fashion! Our model in this photo has appeared in my blog posts before. I have always been impressed with her beauty and her understanding of the www.aleyacollections.com brand. As always, her choice of jewelry and makeup goes perfectly with this (or any other) outfit she wears. I would love one day to meet her. I would most enjoy talking with her about beauty and fashion.

I don’t know about you, but I love the autumn months. Whenever I am out, I make it a point to take Elizabeth Lawrence’s advice: “Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.”  During the autumn, I try to get away from thinking about work and take time to visit the Franklin Cider Mill in Franklin, Michigan. The apple cider and old fashion donuts are outstanding.

AC has a beautiful selection of pullover sweaters! This patterned pullover, for example, would make an enchanting addition to your wardrobe. Its butterfly pattern is delightful.

Or how about this pullover (see below)?  I  love the colors -- bright orange and yellow stand out beautifully. I also love the cats! They look adorable! Most of all, I love that AC provides for the viewer a series of photos of this fantastic piece of attire. Our model's sunny demeanor comes through and though! It’s a well-done photo shoot! She has a playful style that I admire. I can see her and her beloved enjoying  a Saturday afternoon antique shopping or spending time looking for the perfect Halloween pumpkin. Afterward, a late lunch at Little Tony’s in Grosse Pointe, Michigan. I am sure she would love this quote from Victoria Erickson: “If a year was tucked inside of a clock, then autumn would be the magic hour."

I hope that your visit to www.aleyacollections.com was an enchanting one.

Sincerely,

Gabe xoxo
