Transitioning Your Closet Away From Fast Fashion

Transitioning your closet from one season to the next is a struggle for most of us. With the coming and going of seasons – changes are not just happening with the weather, but with our style. Our fashion choices shift, sometimes drastically. Maybe most of the winter you opted for a hoodie and sweatpants. No shame in that! But now Spring has arrived, the birds are singing, the flowers are blooming activating your allergies, and you’ve decided you no longer want to rock the chic ‘working from home’ look. You want florals and lemons on everything in a range of…

Model of the Month: Susie

By Katie Sotack Having just celebrated our eighth year anniversary, SmartGlamour has been through a lot of iterations. We’ve built a following on Instagram, launched (and relaunched) our blog, and just last week put out a Spring 2022 Collection. None of this would be possible without founder, Mallorie or her tight band of workers. This month we’re celebrating a model who’s been with SmartGlamour since the start of the pandemic and brought light during that stressful time for the world. A jack-of-all-trades as a makeup artist, burlesque performer, cosplayer, and professional pin-up model, this model conquers whatever she set her…

The address stands loud and proud above the doors, green glass paneling and steal beams holding the structure together. This is where ten models gathered last Saturday to flaunt SmartGlamour‘s Spring 2022 line.

Model of the Month: Michelle

By Katie Sotack Frequently, models are defined by their looks. It’s what the world sees through the camera lens and Photoshop. At SmartGlamour, models are not airbrushed to perfection or instructed to give a non discriminate pout for the camera. We want to see every dip and wrinkle that makes our models relatable to the rest of the world. We want to see personality shine through. This month’s model, Michelle has got personality in spades. A resilient body positive role model in her spare time, as well as a non-profit intellectual when she’s on the clock. We’re starting to wonder…

5 Fashion Tips To Stay Warm This Winter

By Katie Sotack The Nannie Swing Coat Despite a mild entrance into the New Year compared to decades prior, it seems the harsh cold of winter is finally falling upon us. The nip has kicked in and if you’re a Northerner, much like SmartGlamour (which is handmade in NYC), you’re bound to have witnessed the never ending warning of snow on TV. Whether you’re up in Boston collecting gas for the snow blower or down in sunny LA finding the boardwalk extra chilly this time of year, here are the tried and true fashion tips to stay cozy and stylish…

Model of the Month: Abimbola

By Katie Sotack Authentic and diverse models can be hard to come by in the clothing industry. Often times, models aren’t directed to ‘be themselves’. At SmartGlamour we do things differently. Our models are as diverse in personality as they are in age, size, shape, and ability. The goal is that any and every customer can find someone modeling our clothes who are similar to them. This month’s model is newer to SmartGlamour’s repertoire of models, having only worked three photo shoots with us, but her light-hearted personality and playful sense of style have shined through since day one. Beginning…

Tales of the Plus Size Prom Dress

By Katie Sotack I was a fat child. I say that with all the love and tenderness in my heart. Equally so, anyone who has seen me in real life or via Instagram can attest to my love for femme fashion. An easy way to identify me in college was to search for bright, bubblegum pink across the 250 acre campus. I would not go out unless I had a fun skirt and powerful pair of six inch heels to match. I was the equivalent of Carrie Bradshaw; a self involved blogger who’d spend her last cent on designer clothes. However,…
