are you buying cases and cases of water? S’well to the rescue!

Last summer I noticed I was purchasing way too many cases of water to have on hand when I was out and about. I found this bottle I randomly purchased a while back in the hopes of winning something (I didn't win). Anyway, I started using it and was immediately hooked!

I have used various reusable bottles through the years, none of which compare to S’well. The designers at #SwellBottle figured it out and rather well, I might add. The bottle is attractive and well designed. It is insulated in such a way that it keeps beverages cold for 24 hours and hot for 12. One of my favorite features is the fact that there is no condensation.

They offer many colors and textures and new patterns have recently been introduced.  The bottles are available in three different sizes.  For all of you wine drinkers out there...the larger one holds an entire bottle of wine.

To make something fabulous even more fabulous, they donate to great causes.

Treat yourself and those in your life to a S'well's a win/win on so many levels.  It has become a stylish accessory that I don’t leave home without! 

So...grab a S'well bottle and head to the beach in style wearing your girltrunks!

a visit to the best fashion closet in the city

In a special blog, girltrunks’ Social Media/PR intern, Courtney, will share her recent fashion experience.

Wow, I’m excited to be writing my very first blog for girltrunks. I recently had the opportunity to attend a Q&A session at the Florence O’Donnell Wasmer Gallery at Ursuline College. Constance Korosec, Ph.D., is the curator of the gallery’s latest exhibition, “The Best Closet in Cleveland”.  I was very excited about this event for many reasons. I’m a senior fashion student at Ursuline, Dr. Korosec is one of my instructors, and I wanted to learn more about the preparation for the gallery.

The Costume Collection at Ursuline College contains nearly 4,000 pieces. However, Dr. Korosec could only select 37 pieces. Talk about making some hard decisions. When I arrived, I made sure to take pictures of some of my favorite looks.

This dress is a part of an area informally called the Gold Corner. This dress stood out to me because of the neckline and fabric. This dress was donated by the Fashion Institute of Technology.

My favorite piece is a pink and black sheath dress with a big pink bow. The colors alone grabbed my attention. It’s a recent donation to the collection and came from a lady named Mrs. Kadis. The dress was designed by a French designer in Paris.

The centerpiece is a pink John Galliano gown. The dress was donated by Elegant Extras about eight years ago.  

Check out the back of the dress!

If you are in the area, I would highly suggest stopping by to check out the exhibit. It will be running until October 31.
