Monday, June 29, 2009 Quick Guide answers, "What do I wear to that?"

Summer has finally arrived and with it comes a host of warm weather occasions and wardrobe decisions we have to make - office attire, graduation parties, bridal showers, outdoor charity events, and long, lazy days at the beach. Where does a girl go for advice? The internet can create information overload. Not only are there so many looks and sites to choose from, but is it appropriate for the occasion?

Fret no more, my friends. I recently learned of the Quick Guide on, a new luxury online shopping boutique that offers a one-click solution for finding out what to wear for various occasions, such as my cousin's upcoming baby shower. Once I entered the Quick Guide section of the site, I simply clicked on the Bridal/Baby Shower icon and they showed me all the looks that are appropriate for that type of event. Unsure what cocktail attire means? Click on the Cocktail Attire icon to find out. Other Quick Guide categories include The Working Woman, Beach Attire, Rehearsal Dinner, Great Gift Items, The Pregnant Girl, Formal Attire, and many more.

25Park has all the summer 2009 trends including the gladiator sandal, one shoulder tops, sheer fabrics, sequins, ruffles and scarfs. They carry a variety of ultra chic lines including, Antik Batik, Michael Kors, and Elizabeth and James. In addition to selling women's clothing and accessories, 25Park also offers fashionable kids clothing.

There were so many pieces on the site I loved, such as this yellow Armory Top by Malene Birger.

Unfortunately, the prices don't work with my budget, however, I'll still bookmark the Quick Guide to get outfit ideas I can then translate into something more affordable.
