Marvelous Designs Of Mrs. Maisel

January 4, 2018

By Tab Byrum

I’m not a TV or movie critic but I know what I like and when I see something that’s entertaining to watch and ALSO beautiful to look at I want to share, that’s how I feel about the new Amazon series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. The show takes place in the late 1950’s in NYC and stars Rachel Brosnahan as Miriam Maisel, Midge to her friends and family. Midge is living the idyllic 1950’s housewife life, she has a gorgeous apartment in a building with a doorman, a successful husband and two children, a BOY and a GIRL. Midge’s world is turned upside and she discovers a talent for stand up comedy she didn’t realize she had. The story follows what it was like to be a woman in 1950’s America trying to climb the ladder and be successful, along the way we meet her wonderful parents played by Marin Hinkle and Tony Shaloub, they are always there for their little girl but at times she does push them to the limit. Anyway, the story is awesome but half of the entertainment value comes from the beautiful sets and the costumes worn by everyone. The series does an excellent job of portraying NYC in the 1950’s, from the clothes and decor to the cars and cabs on the street. If you love a good dramedy filled with self-deprecating humor and beautiful EVERYTHING then check out The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Amazon TV this weekend, it’s awesome. Enjoy!!! (above via)

Tabulous Father’s Day Gift Guide ~ Unsimply Stitched

June 12, 2017

By Tab Byrum

This coming Sunday is Father’s Day, a day we set aside to honor the man who helped bring us into the world or the men who took us in and raised us as well as the men who have been important to us and our families. As with all these holidays, we give gifts and that is not always an easy gesture to accomplish. This week I’m going to share with you some of the items I’ve found that I like and enjoy and that I think would be great gifts for Dad. We are going to start with socks, and before you roll your eyes about socks you have to check out the great designs and styles from Unsimply Stitched. I know these socks won’t be for everyone, but for those Dads who enjoy a little Sartorial panache, they are great. I ordered several pairs of their No Show socks that I like to wear with pants and jeans when you’re wanting to show skin instead of fabric and I also wear them with low top sneakers, like Converse, in the Summer. Here’s a peek at some of the fun and colorful offerings from Unsimply Stitched, Enjoy!!!

Over the weekend one of Oklahoma’s favorite citizen athletes, Russell Westbrook, premiered his new Lifestyle Sneakers. This is the second collection Westbrook has worked on with the Jordan brand for famed athletic wear company, Nike. Westbrook has been with the Oklahoma City Thunder ever since the team moved here from Seattle before the 2008-2009 season and we LOVE this guy. He’s an amazing athlete and an amazing person who gives as good as he gets and will be inducted into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame later this Fall with Michael Jordan coming to town to introduce Westbrook at the ceremony. Russell says fashion is very important to him and something he wants to pursue once he’s done playing basketball. His new shoe collection uses wonderful fabrics such as leather, suedes, and camo and colors that can be paired with everything from khakis to denim and definitely add style to your outfit. In the words of RW and his mantra, “Why Not?”.  It’s not too early to be thinking Holiday gift giving, here’s a closer look, Enjoy!!! (above image via)

October Color

octobercolor_20

I CAN’T believe it’s October, it just doesn’t seem possible that we are headed into the last quarter of another year. Thankfully I love the month of October with its change in the weather, we start eating soup and heartier foods, change out the wardrobe and of course the change in color. Fall and Winter colors are my favorites with oranges, browns, deep reds, navy blue, and hints of gold, so I thought today we would take a look at Fall colors and hopefully be inspired for the days to come over the next several months. I hope wherever you are October finds you healthy and happy and ready for all the madness that is Autumn and the Holidays. Enjoy!!!

Feet Fun From Havaianas

June 23, 2016

Our part of the country is sweltering right now, from Oklahoma to California the temperature is anywhere from 95 to 120 degrees, so what better time to get our your flip flops than now. I don’t wear flip flops a lot except around the house in the summer or poolside but some that saw recently from Havaianas made me stop and rethink my relationship with the Summertime shoe replacement. What caught my eye the other day was a rack of Havaianas flip flops as I was walking through Dillards and the Disney characters I saw on them, I made note of it and came home and looked them up. There are lots of fun choice for both women and men as well as kids of all ages. I personally may need the Peanuts flip flops to wear around the house this Summer, check out the Havaianas website to see all the choices, the ones I’m sharing today are under new arrivals. Enjoy!!!

Gifts For Dad: Denim Umbrella From London Undercover

I have to make a confession, I have a thing for accessories. Whether it’s scarves and gloves in the winter or sunglasses year round, my motto is “it’s the little things that count”. So my love of accessories squealed out loud when I recently discovered the British website London Undercover and their awesome umbrellas or as they refer to them, Solid Stick Umbrellas, especially one type of umbrella they market, the D-LUX Denim Solid Stick Umbrella. The Undercover website says the umbrellas are inspired by French field workers and the indigo dyed brollies (umbrellas) of the early 20th Century. The umbrellas are made of a special cotton denim that is waterproof, they are available in 3 shades of blue, which I’ll share with you, and a solid hickory stick and handle. You can even have up to five initials put on the leather strap of the umbrella. I think these are so sharp and would be a great gift for anyone, year round. Join me for a look at the “brollies” and visit the Undercover website for more umbrellas and info., Enjoy!!!

Gifts For Dad: No Show From J. Crew

One of my favorite things to wear these days are No Show Socks, I’ve always loved wearing tennis shoes and loafers with no socks, especially in the hot months, but sadly my feet sweat and I’ve been known to ruin some shoes. Today though you can find all kinds of fashionable and colorful socks that are cut low enough they don’t show above the tops of your shoes, thus No Show. J. Crew has some great choices in No Shows that will make great gifts for Dad, especially since it’s become fashionable for the guys to show some ankle, even in their dressier moments. You may have also noticed that lengths are shorter on some of the pants and jeans and No Show socks are perfect to wear with them. Personally, I’ve gotten to where I wear No Show socks throughout much of the year. Here’s a small selection of J. Crew’s choices in No Show Socks, check out the rest online or in your local store, Enjoy!!!

Gifts For Dad: Game of Thrones Attire

June 13, 2016

You can pretty much find a t-shirt that shows your support for any cause, movie and TV show, case in point are socks and t-shirts displaying sigils and saying from Game of Thrones. If your Dad or husband is a GoT fan then you need to check out the HBO website for the hugely popular TV series. Here at our house, we started out as book readers of the Fire and Ice series, long before there was ever any talk of a movie or TV series (yes, we’re those people, the book people) and we LOVE the TV show. I had recently ordered some socks I saw online just for fun and that got me to thinking about Game of Thrones merchandise as gifts and after a little poking around on the internet I found the HBO treasure trove. They have t-shirts for all the major houses as well as shirts with some of the famous dialogue and quips from GoT characters, they also have dress socks with sigils of the house on them, that way you can take Game of Thrones to work with you every day and no one is the wiser, here’s a look at a few of the great merchandise available and remember, “I drink and I read, so I know things.” Enjoy!!!
