Summer Trends

Posted on June 03, 2017 by AUTHOR (edit in theme settings)

Well, the sun has finally made a more consistent appearance on Oklahoma’s summer.  There is just something about the summer that makes a woman want to add fun pieces to her wardrobe.  Whether you need some new accessories to liven up your existing wardrobe or new staple separates, summer 2017 has a lot to contribute. It is overall a more colorful, fun, and flirty look this year!

5.  Tassel Earrings- What a fun and inexpensive way to pop some color or add a little extra flair to your outfit.

4. Embellishments- From layers of ruffles to embroidery, all types of embellishments enhance this summer’s dresses, tops, and bottoms. Beautiful embellishments give a garment extra color and texture that adds interest to your outfit. Even pompoms are trimming the edges of tops, dresses, and all types of accessories from hat to shoe.

3. Floral fabrics continue to be the rage.  Of course, the motifs vary in color, size, and form.  From large bold tropical prints to muted vintage calico, prints adorn many of the summer fashions.  If you are wondering if floral will continue into the fall months, the answer is a resounding yes! So, do not be afraid to invest in some quality floral pieces.

2. Denim – Denim is anything but a boring pair of pants this summer. It is transformed into frayed edge sun tops, structured business attire, distressed high-waisted jean shorts, rompers, and more!

1. Expose the shoulder – Of all the fashion trends this summer, this is the most predominant! Who does not want a break from Oklahoma’s scorching heat? Wearing an off-the-shoulder top or dress offers cooling while providing some arm coverage. Most importantly, off-the-shoulder tops and dresses are both sassy and romantic. What a great feminine, fun touch to a girl’s wardrobe! So go ahead, give 'em the "cold shoulder".

The ladies here at GGM are in the midst of Prom Season!

To say dresses are flying off the rack would be an understatement.

 

 We love our GGM customers and have gotten to know some of you throughout the years. We would like to introduce some of the 2016 Prom GG M staff to you and give you a little insight into their personal styles and favorite gowns.

She is one of the most generous people you will meet. Her passion for building up girl’s confidence and making them feel beautiful is obvious.  Kellie has seen thousands of gowns and, this year, one of her favorite dresses we have here in the shop is a Jovani ball gown. This gown is an A-line fit with a black V-neck bodice and a great hot pink satin skirt (with pockets) this gown has it all. Kellie states: “I visualize this classic ball gown on a young lady who would like to walk the red carpet in elegance like Audrey Hephurn.”

If you want to know if we have a dress in our shop, OR if we can order a certain style, Jenny is your girl! She is full of knowledge and will try her very hardest to find you your dream dress.

Coye Queen- Sales

I have worked at GGM for three years and I absolutely love helping girls find their perfect prom dress. My style is eclectic and edgy. The dress I love this year would be Jovani’s 21899. This gown is form fitting and has full coverage in the front and an open back, topped with a fun and unexpected ruffle. This gown is just stunning on the right girl, it really shows off your curves and I love the colors it comes in (black ALWAYS being my favorite)!

One of Jennifer’s favorite dresses this season was MacDuggal 20020 this rich gown was made out of deep purple velvet and had a decedent cascade of crystals and pearls that covered the front of the gown from the neckline to the floor. With such a beautiful design and detail this gown was absolutely meant for a Queen!

Our Top 4 & Helpful Hints...Back To School Edition

Posted on July 29, 2015 by AUTHOR (edit in theme settings)

This just in: our top 4 picks for your back to school apparel!
(we think you should add these pieces to your closet!)
          1. JoyJoy Piko tops- These tops are not only soft and super comfortable, they come in a large             selection of colors. These tops are great, because, they can be dressed up with fun jewelry, worn over black pants or tucked into a cute skirt. You can even wear them more casually with jeans and a cute pair of flats. We promise, you will feel like you are in your p.j.’s all day long!
          2. YA A-lined dresses- One of our top sellers! These dresses are constructed with a durable fabric that will last throughout the school year. The dress shape is perfect for a flattering, grown up look that will be sure to impress. With white and periwinkle colors available these dresses will not last long!
          3. Maxi dresses- We have a good selection of flowy maxi dresses available in fun colors and patterns. Paired with sandals or cowgirl boots these dresses will easily transition from summer to fall.
          4. Pendant necklaces- Celebs all over are rocking these long unique necklaces, right now! Pendants can be worn alone or with several other pendants at different lengths. They add a pop of color and are so unique, you are sure to find one that speaks your style language!

Some key things to keep in mind as you head out for back to school shopping:

Layers are always a great idea- it may be 90 outside but inside the classroom your teacher may have the classroom at 60! Layer your clothes with vests, cardigans, and hoodies. You can also layer your jewelry- we say the more the merrier!

Solid colors are a must have- invest in solid colored tops, skirts or dresses that can be used as a canvas for brightly colored jewelry, shoes, vests, coats and more!

Headbands are a great and quick solution to your bad hair day issues! GGM offers a huge selection of Pink Pewter headbands that come in all shapes, colors, sizes and styles.

Chunky Sweaters will save your wardrobe’s life! You can choose a solid colored sweater that can be worn with anything or a fun tribal pattern to stand out as your staple winter warm up!

We hope this helped you on your journey to spice up your fall/back to school shopping!

Escape The Heat

Posted on June 04, 2015 by AUTHOR (edit in theme settings)

If you are familiar with an Oklahoma summer, you know how uncomfortably hot it gets outside!

With temperatures in the 100’s it is a great idea to have a plethora of cute, lightweight sundresses, tanks, and rompers on hand! I am LOVING all the fun patterns and styles that GGM has this season!

Here are just a few of my personal favorites:

1. The Full of Color Dress

How perfect is this sundress for a HOT date ?! (see what i did there)

Not only is the pattern on point, but, can we just take a minuet to admire this adorable back?

 

2. Keep It Simple Maxi

We all need a 'go-to' dress in our closet.

A dress we can just throw on for, really, any occasion. Not only does this maxi have a great fit, but, it also has...POCKETS! What more could a girl ask for?! 

*Try styling this with a pair of flip flops and a statement necklace or wedges and a cute summer jean vest!

3. The Summer Romper

Rompers really changed my fashion world when they came back in style.

I mean, its basically a grown up onsie! Not only are they super comfortable but so fun, lightweight and cute to wear!

Diamonds look out, rompers are a girl's new best friend!

 

4. Tropical Print Dress

If you are going on vacation or any pool parties this summer, I feel like you might need this dress!

The tropical print is just begging to be by the water. I love the flow of this dress, too.

5. Lazar Cutout Neon Tank

Neons are a great way to show off a summer tan. I am loving the tribal cutout detail on the front and the hem of this tank!

This tank, styled with white shorts or jeans, would really complete your summertime look!

 

I hope these looks inspired you to embrace the heat of summer and come down to Main Street Broken Arrow's, one and only, GGM to update your summer look!

They're Back.....Prints that is...

Posted on October 25, 2014 by AUTHOR (edit in theme settings)

When most girls think about prints, prom dresses are not the first clothing item you imagine. For those of us that look back on our (or our friends) printed prom dresses from about 5 years ago, or so, we think of putrid tie dyes and in your face flower power. Believe it or not, prints have made quite a comeback this year. Despite the couple of years prints took a turn for the worse and ruined many group pictures, they have resurfaced- in a VERY GOOD way!

The prints we are seeing on the runway today are refreshing and individual. They can truly capture an attitude or era you relate to. Talk about a great opportunity for you to truly release your inner diva!

For example; floral this year is very vintage and soft, it’s romantic and feminine. Another trendy print that is taking off (and my personal favorite) is the Aztec/tribal look. For a girl with a wild, earthy side, who is drawn to design, color, and likes something outside of the box, Tribal is the perfect solution.
How about animal print? When you take a timeless leopard print, pair it with hot pink or black and put it in a gorgeous ball gown or fit and flair you have a winner! Who doesn’t love a statement like animal print to let the world know ‘I am fierce’!

 

Prom is just around the corner ladies! It is good to start thinking and planning ahead. Prom is such a great occasion to step out of the box and show up in something that really inspires you and tells the world who you really are. Let one of our many new prints help you send out that message.
