How To Look Expensive With One-Tone Dressing

By | August 13th, 2017|Categories: , , , , , , , , , , |Tags: , , , |

Tina, here. It's so easy I can't stop dressing like this. I pick one color (or non-color like white) and wear all different shades in that range. So take white; I'll wear ivory, pearl, ecru, etc. all together. It seems this way of one-tone dressing has really caught on. It's chic and it looks expensive. [...]

A Treasure Trove Of Fall Blouses and How To Wear Them With Style

By | August 9th, 2017|Categories: , , , , , , |Tags: , , , |

Tina, here. I have this tendency to dress like an old lady (an outdated term for sure and I'm using it tongue-in-cheek because last I checked there really are no "old ladies" around, just older women whose lives carry more memories than ours). This means I love twin sets, matching gloves and pumps, lady bags [...]

Tina, here. Wedding invitation arrives. Fear sets in. Maybe it's a church ceremony, on a beach or in a backyard. (Are these lovebirds crazy? Yes.

Tina, here. I haven't seen an ocean since I don't know when. Oh, wait. Last February. So I'm not so deprived after all! But still, I believe you need to see the ocean at least once a year not to go crazy. I'm bordering on needing it twice a year to stay sane. We all [...]

Summer Must-Have: T-Shirt Dresses

Tina, here. I've been hunting and gathering t-shirt dresses for the past couple of summers. Don't you love clothes that don't touch you? I know you do because we see gobs of too-big-for-you clothes in every closet. We have this problem with buying clothes that are too big for us in an effort to look [...]

About Tina Adams - Modern Classics

Tina Adams, a native of Nashville, spent the majority of her youth in a school uniform wearing plaid skirts and saddle oxfords (which may explain her obsession with tartan and brogues), and found she had a knack for turning a few simple items into a wardrobe of seemingly endless opportunities. But she also has a heart for helping women and you can regularly hear her say, “This isn’t a fashion job. It’s a mission to help women feel great so they can live their lives happily. It’s just clothes, after all.” Tina’s clients have always valued her commitment to being a truth-teller when it comes to evil capris, building a wardrobe around timeless classics, and showing you the right way to embrace a fun trend. Tina also has a special place in heart for women battling breast cancer, for many reasons including her decision to have a prophylactic double mastectomy. Finding it difficult to dress and deal with simple tasks like washing her hair, Tina teamed up with her best friend and beauty expert, Deidre DeFelice, to found The Pink Chapter.
