Check this out! With as much White (and black) as we see in this month’s releases, this shouldn’t be a surprise to any of you! They are spot on in their review of what’s going on in the fashion world.

PRINT AND PATTERN

 Louis Vuitton

One of my favorite trends of this Spring-Summer 2012 is the minimalist style. This style has a innate elegance, and never fails. The versatility that achieves, facilitates the choice for a day’s work, for a party, wedding or dinner.

Chanel

This style gives a very feminine line to the woman while the man takes the best in sets of two pieces. A mixture of inspirations to achieve looks unpolluted, all in pure white with small details to match.

Givenchy

Having said that, the total white look is trendy. With the summer heat, from light colors to dark shades accomplish our preferences and white this summer is the jewel in the crown. Immaculate, pure, innocent, elegant, …  From Lady-Like style to the more sporty, white captivates us this season, and a lot.

{March 31, 2012}   Helping Cale!

I can barely put myself in the shoes of the parents of this little girl.  She goes to my boy’s school and is the same age as my middle son, Gage.  It breaks my heart at the thought of a sweet baby going through something as horrible as a cancer fight.  Tonight is her benefit dinner and auction.  If you are in the middle Tennessee area and want to help, be at College Street Elementary at 4 for the BBQ dinner, auction starting at 6.  Dinner is $6 a plate.  All proceeds go to the family to help with expenses during this time.

I have heard of several area business who have given donations for the auction.  Below is a list of what I know of for sure:

I am donating a cream base, Leila Shell and $25 worth of gift certificates for the auction. Total retail value of $95. Gift certificates may be broken up and given as gifts or used as one lump gift certificate.

In addition to this auction item, I am offering 10% of sales to be donated to the family if anyone wants to host a Miche Home Show in Cale’s honor.  Contact me right away if you want to do this because other’s have already taken me up on dates for other events and my calendar is getting tight.

Impatients and $105 worth of Lawncare

Inpatients and $105 worth of Lawncare. Three gift certificates good for $35 each of lawncare. They may be used by one person or broken up and given to others who can use them.

{March 31, 2012}   Pewter Rope Handles BACK!

…but in limited quantity!  If you were disappointed that you didn’t get them the first time around, you had better get them now because corporate says they are very limited and will go fast!

Theses handles are the stylish sister the the Rope Handles Black that were just released.  They are 24″ which provides a 10″ drop.  If you have your eye on either set, get them now!   Don’t know what shells to wear with these handles?

Happy Styling!

{March 31, 2012}   Zoe needs our help!

URGENT! Zoe needs our help!

As a mother of three, ages 8, 6 and 13 months, I can only image the way Kelsie Bernstein must feel right now. Her daughter, Zoe, was in a car accident and the outlook is uncertain according to doctors.  She is in a coma right now and has two skull fractures.  My brother-in-law posted this on Facebook today:

HELP! SOMETHING WORTH SHARING. This is my friend Kelsie and her daughter Zoe. Zoe suffered severe head trauma in a car accident and is still in a coma like state, she has 2 skull fractures and some bruising of her brain. We won’t know extent of the damage until she is more awake. This is your normal everyday little girl, and this could happen to any of us. Please pray for her, share this, and if you would like to do more Zoe has an account at Wells Fargo in her name account # (ask me) , we also have PayPal set up under the email Kbernstein2123@gmail.com for all of our non local friends and family.

There are 4 ways you can help.  Two are listed in the Facebook post above.  The other two are listed below:

Scentsy:
All you have to do is visit Brian’s website and shop until you drop. 25% of the sales will go to Zoe’s fund.  You can also friend Brian’s Facebook Page to get updates on the fundraiser and promotions.

Miche:
Visit my online store and shop under Zoe’s Fundraiser link by clicking here.  All orders will earn the family 10%  However, Miche has four shells that reflect her name and they are on sale!  Should you decide to purchase a Zoe Shell, I will give 12% on that product.  If you purchase a base with one of those shells, I’ll give them 12% on that too!  Below are the Zoe Shells:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

ALSO if you would like to book a Skype, online or virtual show show in Zoe’s honor, I’d gladly give 10% of your show sales to her fund also!

PLEASE REMEMBER: When ordering from either Scentsy or my Miche website, please be sure to select the option to have your order shipped directly to you.  This way Kelsie doesn’t have to take the time to divide the orders out and mail/deliver them.  She has so much on her plate right now.  Before checking out, make sure that your order is attached to her show.  You should be given the option to attach the order to their show at any time.  Just select Zoe’s Fundraiser if you didn’t follow the direct link.

Thank you very very much.  If you are unable to support this family by way of donation or purchase through one of the options above, please pray for them.  Pray for Kelsie’s heart as I can’t imagine what she’s going through right now.  Pray for Zoe’s healing.  Pray that God does a miracle in her body and heals her, leaving the doctors speechless.  Pray for the hospital staff in charge of her care…that they get plenty of sleep before their shift and work diligently and carefully when around her.

If you wouldn’t mind, could you please share the word?  Post to twitter, facebook, link to your blog, tell your friends, family, church members.  If this was your little girl, you could only hope and pray others would take the time to do this for you. Thanks for caring so much!

Cheers,

Andrea Warren



The long awaited April releases are here!  You’ve seen them since February in the catalog but starting Sunday, April 1, they will be available for purchase on my website.  Without further delay, allow me to introduce you to these wild ladies!

Interchangeable handbag shells for Miche.

Prima: Robie (Signature). Demi: Harlow (Signature) Megan (Premium). Classic: Harper (Premium). Petite: Skylar (Premium) Lily (Signature) Names given respectively from Left to Right as they appear per size in the picture.

Animal print is always hot, but when the designers added punches of mauve to the classic and demi shells, they turned it up a notch still.  The solid colors of the other shells are so warm and inviting, just like the temperatures that will soon be here.  I know here in middle Tennessee, we’ve seen days in the 80’s already.  Pair these bags with a quiet pattern or a solid and you will be too hot to handle walking down the street.

As if those shells aren’t amazing enough, look what else Miche released!  More accessories to help you totally polish off your look.

Two new Hip Bags (Jayla and Nina), Black Rope Handles, Soft Wallets (Yellow and Neutral Snake) Coin Purses (Kiki, Lola, Margo and Skylar) and three new Charmers (Gumdrop, Taffy and Cotton Candy). All names are given from Left to right in their respective groups.

 

How to use these products:

Jayla Hip Bag:  She’s great to use when you’re on the go, just like any of our hip bags.  If you look closely though, her long strap is the same style as the petite long handle.  If you have the petite and purchase Jayla, you essentially get a new bag and another option for your petite base!

  • Picture this:

Paired with the long handle from  Seriously that would totally get heads turning!  In the mean time, take the handle from the petite base and put it on Jayla.  Can you feel the heat radiating off of this combo??  I can!

Gumdrop Charmer:  The great thing about these charmers (and all of Miche’s accessories) is that you can pair them with any handbag.  I personally cannot wait to put this product on the Lily Shell for the Petite base.  The nice dark pink/purple tones of the shell would blend so well with the teal/blues of this charmer.  Putting these two together would turn heads for sure.  You could also pair it with the Megan for the Demi to pull colors from your outfit onto your bag.

Soft Wallet (Yellow):  For those who like the polished look of a classic solid colored handbag, a bright wallet can give you a punch of party to brighten up your day when you pull it out to pay the lady at the register at the grocery store, doctor’s office or even at the gas station.  Not to mention the compliments and smiles you will get from those standing near by.

Stay tuned in the coming days for Mother’s Day promotions through corporate, Mother’s Day Miche Mania through me and places you can tell your husband to go to purchase YOUR Mother’s Day gift through me!  If you haven’t already, sign up for notifications when I post a new blog.  That way you will be sure to stay on top of all that’s going on through me.  Don’t forget to tweet and Facebook about the new releases!  If you like what you see, I’m sure your friends will too!

Cheers,

Andrea Warren – Miche Independent Representative



With any hot fashion piece, they go fast!  That’s the case with the newest Hope Shell from Miche.  Ladies couldn’t get enough of it!  The Demi and Classic size Hope Purple Shell is sold out already. (UPDATE SINCE I POSTED THIS BLOG: This shell for the Petite is also SOLD OUT!)(Update2: ALL Hope Purple Shells are SOLD OUT!)

Miche Hope Purple ShellsI have this shell for the Demi for sale.
I can ship or deliver locally today!  Call me ASAP!

I read where one woman bought one of them for each size base she owned!  Now that’s awesome! The best part about her sporting the new Hope Purple shells on all of her bases is that she was able to add to the cancer research fund.  A portion of every sale of a Hope Shell from Miche goes to cancer research.  Sure she spruced up her shell selection, but most of all she put her footprint on the fight against a disease that reaches into most all of our families at one point or another.  We all know someone who has been touch by cancer.  For me it was my stepmom and grandfather while I was in high school.  My stepmom has 15+ years of victory over breast cancer where as my grandfather is in Victory by way of colon cancer.  My Aunt Janet joined him this past year due to various forms of cancer.  Enough is enough.

You can do your part, too!  Purchase any of the “Hope Shells” by going to http://www.andreawarren.miche.com.  On the left hand side, all of the base sizes are listed there.  Click on the bag size or sizes that you have and purchase one today.  For a limited time, Miche has re-released all of the retired shells for purchase.  They are going fast though so don’t wait a week or two.  You need to do it now.

You can make a difference in someone’s life.  Through today, if you order any Hope Shell from my website and add a Hope Charmer to your order, I will give you a $5 credit toward your next purchase!  It’s a win/win situation!

Cheers,

Andrea
