Head to Toe Talbot-abulous…

Are you having a bit of the cross-over fashion blues? I am. My feet aren’t quite used to being encased in my boots (crying for my flip  flops) and as I transition my wardrobe into my cooler weather gear, I find myself sluggish in creating perfect fashion statements. I know…I know – you too.

Rest assured, you are in good hands. With espresso shot ingested, I have put together a to-die-for, must-have look for fall – that we can all wear and put together without the help of a stylist. You will be the envy of women, men will pull an Exorcist 360 (what man doesn’t when he sees a woman in leather?) and you will be confident and cool in your classy, chic gear. The good news – you don’t have to go very far or spend a ton of money. Talbots has it all and it is just a click away from being yours.

ENTER TO WIN: Talbots Rose Silhouette Dress

11 Jun

**in accordance with the new 2013 FTC Blogger Guidelines**

By Christabelle…  @CBellesCloset

I have always looked up to my mother as a fashion icon of sorts…and if you are an avid reader of this blog, you have read all about Ro and her magnificent closet(s).

Talbots Rose Silhouette Dress

So, as we near Father’s Day…I can’t help but think about my mom.  It has been a month since the champagne flutes emptied of mom’s day mimosas, the lavish brunches cleared away, and the beautiful bouquets turned to potpourri – Mother’s Day officially came and went last month. But isn’t it truly mother’s day EVERY DAY?  The millions of things Mom does for the children in her life never ceases. The sweet notes (and sometimes not so sweet notes, CLEAN YOUR ROOM), the worried phone calls, the “pick me up at the mall” call and the never-ending piles of clean laundry are still there like clockwork. No matter what.

That is why it is important to continue celebrating each and every mother, even when the hype of Mother’s Day is no longer around to force us! And in honor of every selfless mom out there Christabelle’s Closet has teamed up with Talbots to spotlight one of their own Super-Moms, Lisa Gavales, Talbots President of Direct and Marketing. New to the team perhaps,  but the Talbots brand has always been with Lisa and her family.  Thirteen year old Lindy (Lisa’s daughter and budding fashionista), looks absolutely stunning in Talbots Rose Silhouette Dress. A few bright accessories, a fabulous hair style and most importantly beauty from within – no matter 13, 30 or 130, this show stopping dress can be worn by us all. We LOVE how Lindy paired her dress with a denim button down and nude booties. So on trend and super-cute! This mother-daughter duo proves Talbots is a brand for girls of any age.
