Silver Snowflake Holiday Fashion

Dress for your holiday event in an outfit that features artwork that cannot be found at the mall. This silver snowflake fashion outfit was created by a designer at Zazzle.com and is a holiday look that you can buy as shown or create your own fashion look.

Create your own holiday fashion look by uploading a photograph and using the online design tool. If you are creative and have time to mess with your product design, then great but if not know that the silver snowflake holiday fashion outfit is beautiful and cannot be bought at your local mall. The chances of somebody showing up at the holiday party in your outfit is not likely.

Here is a fashion set that shows you the silver snowflake two-piece outfit with coordinating silver accessories.





I think this snowflake print with midnight blue abstract background is beautiful. Plus the fit of the tank top is good for women who have curves. Unlike the form-fitting tanks, this top has a drape in the right places. The fabric feels like silk and is so soft on your skin. The leggings are delightfully made with just enough stretch to feel comfortable and they do not sag at the knees. So you look picture perfect after sitting.


Know that I think this midnight blue and silver snowflake outfit is beautiful and if you buy it for your special occasion that you will look stunning.

Print on Demand Fashion Design at Zazzle

For the last nine years, I have been designing fashion for him, her and kids at Zazzle.com. I like that every product that I design is a work of art and is one of a kind. Which means it is made by Zazzle, and you will never see it the mall. If you are someone who likes unique fashion then know that you can buy the design as shown or you can choose to upload your own artwork, graphics or photographs to create your own fashion look.

This fashion set features leather-look leggings that and black zebra printed accessories that I created at my Photo Gifts by Sgolis store.
Animal Print Fashion Set by sgolis
Over the years I have bought many artwork t-shirts from Zazzle and find that the quality does differ from product style, there is finer cotton that feels like silk on your skin that is perfect for warm weather and there are other t-shirt styles that are made with heavier cotton which is best used for cooler weather. The sweatshirts and hoodies are super as they have a smooth outer layer with a fleece-like texture close to your skin.
I find that the artwork when applied to the quality cotton and blended polyester fabrics at Zazzle are reproduced beautifully. Zazzle does not mass produce their products, instead, they print the product only when it is bought. So when you buy any product on the website a skilled worker will create your product. They will ensure that your fashion product will have a high-resolution digital quality image that does not fade even after several cold water washes with air fluff drying and hung up on a hanger to dry all the way.
Know that I design fashion for men women and children at Zazzle and I am also a customer who shops at other designers stores. I like that the products I buy are works of art. If you have not shopped for print on demand fashion at Zazzle, then I would recommend that you check them out. Here are a few of my fashion looks from my store. These products were created from photographs or graphics. Click the highlighted words to view.

Zazzle Christmas Tree Skirts

Zazzle is a print on demand website that sells a variety of products; clothing, office supplies, home décor and seasonal decorations such as Christmas tree skirts in brushed polyester, faux linen and coral fleece. What I like about the tree skirts is that you can buy from a variety of designs that were created by artists or you can make your own from uploading a photograph or your own artwork.
The Christmas tree skirt is a good way to conceal the tree stand and to dress up the look of your holiday tree. It is customary to set you wrapped presents under the tree, these gifts would be arranged on the Christmas skirt.
Here is a photograph of my tabletop tree. The skirt is white (like snow)

 The tree skirt compliments your Christmas Decorations.
When it comes to choosing a tree skirt I recommend that you choose one that will compliment your Christmas theme and the colors of your ornaments. Red or green colors are popular, also gold and silver prints. There are many tree skirts to choose from I am sure there is one that is perfect for your holiday home décor.
If you are someone who likes to coordinate and do a color match then you may want to shop at Zazzle designers store that features a variety of products using the same pattern as the tree skirt. You may want to match the tree skirt up with
Many times the Zazzle designer features the same design used on the tree skirt an ornament, ribbon and gift wrapping paper. How wonderful to be able to coordinate the tree skirt with the matching Christmas decorations.
When you shop for your Christmas decorations and tree skirts at Zazzle you will be supporting small business because the artist that created the product earns a royalty on their designs. You will also be shopping for unique products that cannot be bought anywhere else. So no worries about your friends having the same tree skirt or other Christmas decorations.
Here are a few Christmas tree skirts with matching accessories. If you like any of them and want to view them in high resolution please click on the highlighted words below the image and this will take you to the designer's online store.

Cat Pattern Ties for Men


When comes to dressing up for the office or special event men will put on a cat print tie because they do not mind showing off to that real men love cats. My husband has a drawer full of cat pattern ties He likes to wear one I made from him from a photograph of our Siamese cat but for meetings or power lunches he will put on his black and white leopard print tie or other animal print. I am not sure but I think he feels more confident, in his black suit with his big cat fashion tie.
Classic Styled neckties
Know that you can rarely find a cat pattern necktie at the mall, those stores have mostly generic looking ties for men. If you want a tie that is interesting then you need to shop online at a print on demand store like Zazzle. The ties that are created by some talented painters, photographers, and graphic design artists. There is no such thing as a boring fashion tie at Zazzle.

Gone Fishing – Menswear

Many men prefer to dress in t-shirts and khakis or jeans, they will go to their closet and pull out a plain Hanes tee and “getting dressed” is done. I am married to a man who dresses like this and prefers that he wear a pattern on his shirt. So I designed a line of shirts for men. Here is a menswear tee that I refer to as “gone fishing



Gone Fishing by sgolis 

This men’s tee is a loose-fitting shirt that is perfect for men who are active. It is made from 100% cotton and is a heavier-weight, not paper-thin but a good weight that appeals to men who prefer a shirt that is more durable. This shirt is perfect for working out in the yard or for wearing to go fishing.

Gone Fishing Men's Basic Tan T-Shirt

My husband likes this quality-made shirt with the double-needle stitching on the sleeve, neck, and bottom. The shirt wears well and is one of my husband's favorites.

My husband weighs 152 and is 5’11. He wears a medium and the fit is loose and comfortable. We laundered this shirt in cold water, permanent press cycle and dried on low heat. Took out of the dryer when the shirt was damp, shook it and put on a hanger. It did not shrink and looks as good as new.

Retro Style Geometric Legging Outfit

Leggings have come a long way from wearing to an aerobics class in the 1980s to being a trendy pant to wear for every day, running errands, lunch with friends or to dress up for a cool party.
Retro Style Legging by sgolis view pattern leggings

Recently I designed a retro style geometric pattern legging and painted it with the colors pink, gray, black and white. The retro look was requested by a customer of mine who wanted it for her daughter to wear to college parties or to class.

What my customer liked about this style legging is that it could be worn with a variety of colors and it could be dressed up with a trendy top or it can be worn with t-shirt sneakers or flip-flops and matching monogram tote bag.

Unlike the ever-popular jean, this legging is super comfortable with the right amount of stretch that gives when you move and bounces back in shape, it never looks baggy or out of shape even after being laundered.

Decorative Hair Accessory – Gold Leaf Bobby Pins

Recently while shopping at zazzle.com I came across an artist who designed by handmade elegant bobby pin hair accessories. The description says “Echo & Laurel was founded by Cristalle Cheung in September of 2014. Our line specializes in made-to-order bridal and wedding accessories inspired by rustic romance and nature. Every piece is designed and created by Cristalle in her San Francisco studio."

The leaf bobby pins would be lovely for a bride but I think you could wear them every day to hold back your bangs or to highlight a hair updo. I say this because the leaf design is simple and elegant without crystals. You can always request crystals to be added (see contact the designer at Zazzle store) but for an everyday look for work or worn with a sundress the plain gold or bronze leaf design is very pretty.


Here is a photo of the leaf bobby pins then bellow see a photo of the model wearing the hair accessories.


Gold Leaf Bobby Pins



So while this hair accessory is advertised for a wedding bride, bridesmaid or guests I think that the design is perfect for women who dress in feminine fashion, that this bobby pin would look lovely with sundress or holiday dress.

Wall Clocks - Interior Decorating Ideas



Decorate your space with a large wall clock.  Choose a variety of styles and group them together on a feature wall.  Or shop for one large clock and use it as your feature.  

In the room design bellow, you will see a vintage style clock with exposed gears, this is the wall feature.  I have added complementary clocks to the wall and boxed them in with a chair rail.  The arrangement makes the room look interesting. Do you agree?





Shop online for fabulous wall clocks

While shopping online I found some wall clocks that would complement a traditional-themed home or office. For the person who likes texture, I think the faux leather clocks are interesting in the square shape. 

Modern clocks with vintage clock gears will appeal to the person who likes the steampunk or antique decorations and the landscape or animal clocks will make the room feel cozy.

Here are a few of my favorite online wall clock finds.

Zazzle Summer Fun Flip Flops – Pink Floral


Summer is finally here and it is time to put away the closed-toe shoes and slip on a pair of flip flops. Flip flops are the summer shoe that makes casual outfits look super cute.

Recently I was shopping for a gift and knew that the recipient wanted a pink floral pattern flip flop. I found many floral strap flip flops but none came in the pink color. The gift had to be a pink flower pattern to go with her beach outfits.

Zazzle has summer fun flip flops in a variety of pink designs. The 100% rubber shoe are not like the ones you find at the drug store, instead, they have a thick insole with more cushion for comfort. The straps on this shoe are thin and made for a women’s food.

You can choose between two different footbeds and from a variety of strap colors. Buy the flip-flop shown or you can make your own from uploading a photograph. There is a flip-flop for everyone, kids, men, and women. If you are heading for the beach, lake or even the pool this summer then check out the flip flops sold at Zazzle.

I bought this pink floral flip flop because the pink color was exactly the shade that was desired and the print offered a good balance of the white color.


Pink Flower ART Womans Slim Straps Flip Flops


Shipping was quick, received in under ten days. Now the recipient of this shoe has a narrow foot but told me that she could size down from a 7 ½ to a 7 medium and it will fit fine. I ordered the 7 and hoped it would fit since no widths were offered.  This particular shoe runs wide and is not intended for someone with a narrow to medium foot. I think it would perfect for someone with a true medium to wide foot.  


If you love the flip flops and you have a narrow to medium foot then I would recommend sizing down. The shoe may fit you so I would recommend that you buy and try it on. You can always exchange or return, Zazzle has award winning customer service.

Indoor / Outdoor Area Rugs


Add ambiance to your outdoor living space with an area rug that is made to withstand the weather. Most outdoor rugs are made from nylon and polyester which makes the outdoor rug stronger and good for high-moisture areas including covered patio, porch, laundry room, and bathroom.

Recently I was shopping for a rug for one of my clients and found that there are a variety of patterns, sizes, and shapes to choose which will allow you to choose the indoor/outdoor rug that will appeal to your needs. 

Are you feeling inspired to decorate your outdoor space?  Here is a patio design set that will show you how to decorate a covered porch with patio furniture and an outdoor rug.   The rug brings the seating area together and this space is eye appealing.  Do you agree?

Outdoor Rug Benefits


When you accessorize your patio with an outdoor rug you will be able to cover up a section of your patio or deck that is worn paint peeling or cement crack. Nobody will view the imperfections when the rug is concealing them.

Another benefit would be that an outdoor rug makes your patio and sitting area more cozy and welcoming.

Other


Even though the rugs are made to be mold resistant it is best that your outdoor living space has a covering because a rug left out on a patio without a covering will become worn out quickly. After a hard rain, the rug may develop mold or have a mildew smell.
