Treat Yourself

Indulging in retail therapy can be an act of self-care.  We talked to a few style experts and asked them to share one item that is at the top of the their “treat yourself” list this season. We hope this list will inspire you to splurge a little and experience the thrill of adding something new to your wardrobe. 


BOSS Womenswear Coat

Celebrity stylist, Andria Michelle Bush says, “the one item that you should not shy away from treating yourself to this fall/winter season is an amazing coat!” According to Andria, she finds that coats are the one item that are sometimes overlooked as an accessory and coats truly complete every outfit. With much enthusiasm she expressed that the one above from Hugo Boss “doesn’t break the bank, you will have it for many seasons to come and it’s available in two other brilliant colors!”


Pat McGrath Labs MatteTrance Lipstick

Beauty enthusiast and Alika loyalist, Marteekah Sandoval’s favorite thing to shop for in the fall is rich, deep lip products. She told us that there’s nothing that says fall like a nice plum or deep brown shade on your lips. Marteekah recommends Pat McGrath Labs MatteTrance in the shade McMenamy. It’s soft, velvety and looks absolutely amazing on deep skin.” Note: this is a HOT seller and is often sold out, when you find it, buy it immediately!


Eloquii Faux Leather Mini Dress

Because so many of us spent last fall working from home in sweats, our founder, Ramona Dunlap, says it’s time to make bold fashion moves this season. Her treat yourself item is a leather dress (or skirt) in a vibrant color. She’s feeling everything about the dress pictured above from Eloquii because it has all the things: mock turtleneck, strong shoulders, and a raised hemline. Ramona says, “we’ve covered up long enough, now that we are outside, go ahead and show off your legs.”


Olivia Von Halle Pajama Set

When it comes to a luxurious treat yourself wish list item, styling consultant Felicia Bittle, stated, “I love nice sleepwear that is so nice you want to wear it all day. My luxury self-care pick: Olivia Von Halle Lila Striped Silk Satin Pajama Set.” During quarantine, folks were stressing about leggings, but Felicia was stressing about sleepwear that was both comfortable and stylish enough to wear all day. She loves that you can even have your monogram added to these pajamas! With a laugh, she said insisted, “the pj’s have to be striped.” At times she even pairs her pj’s with pearls and an inexpensive pair of fuzzy socks.



Miraval Wellness Spa

While this next item is not a fashion or beauty product, it is too good not to share!  When Felicia Bittle shared her love for the previously mentioned Oliva Von Halle pajama set, she also shared that she really wants to treat herself to Miraval Wellness Spa. She added, “it’s on my list because it incorporates designing your own wellness package. Of course it’s on my “to-do” because of the [expensive] price tag, but I’ve heard wonderful things about it! I truly want to experience anything that will enrich my spirit and mind. I love a good party but I’m looking for inner growth so much more.” By now, you should know that we couldn’t agree with her more as it relates to inner growth.
