THE HOLIDAY SEASON IS UPON US!

Posted on November 02, 2018 by AUTHOR (edit in theme settings)

Christmas is only a little over 7 weeks away! I love the transition from early fall to holiday season. Personally, I love cozy sweaters, layered outfits, and boots. The chill in the air just brings a little extra joy to me as I choose my wardrobe for the day. At GGM, we have those extra fall/winter casual pieces you have been craving to wear.

However, what truly makes my heart flutter is the sound of my family enjoying conversation around the Thanksgiving table and opening their gifts on Christmas morning! Hence, surrounding yourself with family and friends makes this the BEST time of the year!

As you begin your adventure into the shopping season, please keep us in mind for those Christmas party frocks, gift items, and more! Yes, we are best known for our prom, pageant, bridesmaids, and MOB dresses; however, during the Christmas season, we stock the store with great gifts! 

Come see us in the historic Rose District in Broken Arrow!

Back-to-School

Posted on August 03, 2018 by AUTHOR (edit in theme settings)

I grew up with a mom as a teacher. I was a teacher. I know the signs, the emotions, and even the smells of back-to-school. Whether you are a student, teacher, or parent, you have to admit, there is just something about the NEW school year. The anticiapation of meeting new teachers, seeing your friends, learning new concepts, or just starting a new schedule, we all have felt that anxiety of these new adventures.  

Without a doubt, feeling confident about starting the new year is key to a good start! Confidence comes from within; however, looking your best helps you relax and exude that confidence. So, come shop GGM's casual tops, dresses, and shorts for your best first day look!

'Twas the Nightmare Before the Christmas Party

Posted on October 31, 2017 by AUTHOR (edit in theme settings)

 

     What to wear to a Christmas or New Year’s party/event can be one of the biggest fashion nightmares! This time of year should stir up much joy in us. The family gatherings, friend get-togethers, office parties, and holiday galas give all of us something to look forward to. However, have you ever wondered what attire you should wear to that special event? You may ask yourself' "I don't want to show up over-dressed, under-dressed, or out-of-fashion." Showing up decked out in an ugly Christmas sweater when everyone else at the event is wearing cocktail dresses can feel horrifying.  I have noticed that even when "experts" in the fashion etiquette field are asked about event dressing, they often preface their answers with "usually".  I am hoping that I can clear up that "what should I wear" confusion with this simple list & fashion forward examples that follow.

 MOST formal to LEAST formal:

  1. WHITE TIE - Long, floor length formal evening gown.
  2. BLACK TIE - Floor length evening gown or your dressiest cocktail dress.
  3. CREATIVE BLACK TIE - Floor length evening gown or dressiest cocktail dress with creative, fun accessories.
  4. BLACK TIE OPTIONAL - Floor length gown, dressy cocktail dress, dressy little black dress, or dressy separates.
  5. SEMI-FORMAL - Short cocktail dress, little black dress, long dressy skirt and blouse, or dressy separates.
  6. FESTIVE ATTIRE (usually for the holiday season) - Cocktail dress, little black dress, long dressy skirt and dressy pants outfit, dressy separates, holiday accessories and colors.
  7. BUSINESS FORMAL - Suit, business style dress (structure), dress with a jacket, low or high heels (always abide by your company's dress code)
  8. BUSINESS CASUAL – Skirt, pants, open collar shirt, knit shirt, or sweater, casual style dress (typically no spaghetti straps or low necklines).
  9. DRESSY CASUAL - Dress, skirt, or slacks and dressy top, nice jeans and a dressy top.
  10. CASUAL - Sundress, short or long skirt, khakis or nice jeans, shorts are dependent on                              climate and occasion, plain t-shirt or polo

  When styling for your next Christmas or holiday event, remember to keep it classy. If you want to look festive, by all means go for it but keep it simple. For instance, if you are wearing a holiday accessory, wear one fun piece, don’t overdo it. When wearing sequined separates, be sure to break up the shine with a neutral piece. Always play up the special elements of each ensemble. Ask yourself, “What part of this outfit do I want to emphasize?”

As you look forward to 2018, rich, luxurious fabrics will adorn boutiques. Velvets, brocades, satins, and metallic laces will be helping you ring in the new year! ENJOY!

 

All the following dresses may be found at GGM:

 

The intricate lace of this gown creates a very formal look for any white or black tie event. The lace is embroidered with metallic thread and crystals for a vintage yet stunning design.

Off-the-shoulder necklines are still all the rage this season! This sihlouette would be appropriate for any white or black tie occasion.

Sequins and velvet are back and perfect for your holiday cocktail parties!  The sequins on this burgundy cocktail dress (left) create a figure-flattering allover pattern.  On the right, an a-line delicately embroidered tulle skirt is topped with a rich black velvet halter for an upscale LBD!

This strapless cocktail dress is constructed of a beautiful brocade fabric. Brocade fabrics add texture and interest to a dress. It “dresses up” a piece without the added beads and sequins.
