Fresh, Organic Summer Pasta Salad

It's that wonderful time of year- BBQ's, showers, brunch, birthdays and any other occasion to get together for a picnic style gathering.

I often find myself wondering what to bring that's fresh, healthy and delicious. Surprisingly, this salad encompasses a complete meal AND it's very low in fat calories :)

I'm happy to share it with you...
(All ingredients organic and from a local farm produce stand if possible)

1 lb of pasta, cooked and cooled
1 pint of mult-colored cherry or grape tomatoes, cut into halves
2 hard boiled eggs, chopped
3/4 cup of feta cheese, crumbled
1 small cucumber, cubed
1 tbsn e.v. olive oil
1 tbsn white vinegar

*Toss together after the pasta and eggs have cooled
*I used Collezione pasta noodles in this recipe.
*refrigerate for at least 1 hour

*ENJOY* :)

Fresh Threads Designer Consignment loves... Clearwater!

I'm so thrilled to share with you that we love our new home in Clearwater!
We have met so many wonderful ladies who are really happy to have found "the secret treasure" nestled off the beaten path in the downtown Clearwater area. As a resident of this area for the past seven years, I have always found it to be a challenge to find a generous selection of boutiques and consignment shops. So if you've ever shared this feeling, I sincerely hope that you visit us and enjoy our great selection of clothing, handbags, shoes, jewelry and home furnishings.

Thank you zillionz to Ms Robbyn Mitchell, Tampa Bay Times Staff Writer, for taking the time to visit with me and hear about Shop Fresh Threads, our move, what we have to offer and of course, loads of cuteness about my son Gavin! Read the full article here! :)

How & where:
I met Robbyn at The Eye on Fashion 2K15 hosted by The Fashion Movement by way of my very dear friend and business consultant, Ebony Grimsley-Vaz of Above Promotions. If you have never heard of The Eye on Fashion Stylist competition, you should check it out! It's a great show which features stylists from the U.S. competing in the categories of original design, styling and an "out of the bag" styling competition. The stylists are scored by professionals in the related field while in front of a live audience. The "out of the bag" portion of the competition is sponsored by Shop Fresh Threads (that's us!) and all of the clothing is picked out by lil ol' me. The stylists are unaware of the bag contents and must pull the items out in real time in front of the audience to style their selected model. It's really fun to watch!

It's Labor Day Weekend! 25% OFF ALL WHITES!

Well, well... It's Labor Day Weekend... 

Labor Day: Always the first day in September to celebrate social and economic achievements of workers in the USA. 

For many, it is a day of R&R, grilling on the barbecue, hitting the beach or even shopping. For some (I'm not admitting to it!), it's the deadline for wearing whites!

I have to admit, when I first moved to Florida from NYC, it was a "NO, NEVER" in my book. And then one day, one of my fashion savvy stylist friends schooled me on why it is OK to wear white after the big no-no day; especially while living in Florida. 
The truth is, I love white. I have hard a hard time keeping my whites looking crisp and stain-free being the mother of a toddler and all. But I do venture into wearing white whenever possible. Yes, even in the "winter", I wear white. I love brightening up a lovely burgundy winter top with a pair of white jeggings and boots or white skinny jeans and wedges. 
White tops... I can go on and one about my love for white tops! A white James Perse button down shirt or white tee shirt paired with dark denim and a long necklace or with my favorite Genetic Denim Shane shredded jeans is my safety net.

What will you being doing this weekend? 
Will you wear white after Labor Day?
