Danice Stores “It Girls”

We took a look around to see how some of our most faithful customers were rocking Danice Stores in their area. We’ve gotten some enthusiastic responses and were able to get a peek into the lives of two fashionistas who embody all that is Danice Stores. Today, it’s not about the clothes, it’s about the people who wear them.

“…You don’t have to break the bank for a quality fab look”

A special kind of person rocks the Danice Stores look and we’re here to introduce these ladies to the world!

Meet Alexis!

What’s your favorite thing purchased from Danice Stores?

 I would have to say my lace detail romper. It’s so perfect for the summer. I love everything about it, the fit, the color, and the style.

Where are you from?

I’m from New York City. I was raised in Brooklyn but The Bronx has become my home.

How would you describe your personal style?

I would say laid back with a touch of glam.

When you’re not looking for new party outfits, what could we find you doing?

If I’m not at work, you could find me making YouTube videos about all things beauty related. Or probably free-lancing, I love to glam someone up for their special occasion.

Who’s your style icon?

This is such a hard question … I would say I love J. Lo’s style because she’s so versatile. When she’s on the red carpet, it’s full glam and everything looks good on her. Her street style, when she’s just walking around and dressed down, is so laid back but so chic.

When we spotted you in Danice threads, you talked about not being “afraid to mix high and low end.” How has this shaped the way that you shop?

That has shaped my shopping in so many ways. First, I think if you’re on a budget, that doesn’t mean you can’t be trendy or find beautiful pieces for a reasonable price. You can always find celebrity looks for less. Not everything in your closet has to be an expensive investment piece. Shopping is fun for me and finding a great deal on a beautiful item is the best feeling.

As a makeup guru living in NYC, what’s next on the horizon for you?

Hopefully I will be able to continue to do what I love and people will watch and recognize my passion. I think YouTube has helped me open up and be creative. It has brought me so many new friends in the makeup community. It just brings so many opportunities to beauty vloggers and I can’t wait to see what opportunities it brings me.


Meet Mz Glamour Addict!

What’s your favorite thing purchased from Danice Stores?

My most prized possession was my BIRTHDAY DRESS!!! I almost passed out in the store finding a dress with superb quality that can rival the designer brands but at a fraction, and I mean a fraction, of the cost!! The dress was only $5 bucks!! *WoooHooo* While at my dinner party, my female guests (who were wearing designer brands) truly didn’t believe me about its pricing until they researched it on their own.

Aside from that, I have several fab picks from Danice… accessories, handbags and, dare I mention, lingerie that gets my husband approval (smiling). I always tell my GlamDollz… You don’t have to break the bank for a quality fab look!

As a NYC native, what’s something you’d like to see more of in your hometown?

A Danice MEGA-STORE!!! Like a Flagship Store! I’d love to see more campaign awareness about the store. I didn’t know about the store until I stumbled on it while parking my car one day.

Your blog, MzGlamourAddict, is really popular! Do you you blog for a living?

I don’t blog for a living but I do blog for the love of saving money and sharing what I know when it comes to saving while achieving a fab look. I blog for the many like myself who are Beauties on a Budget looking for quality finds without going broke.

Who’s your inspiration?

…those who trust my reviews! It’s the feedback that gives me the energy and mindset to continue sharing what it is that I know.

What’s your go-to outfit for a big night out?

Something “grown woman style” sexy! Nothing that takes me out of my age bracket (laughs). I know how to stay in my lane because everything isn’t for everybody, despite how good it may look on others. I’ll most likely pick a sleek dress, minimal accessories and killer pumps.

What does one have to do to be a GlamDoll?

EVERYONE is a GlamDoll to me, but to be an Official GlamDoll is to be a lover of not breaking the bank for a fab look while staying connected with me on my social media accounts: MzGlamourAddict.com, FacebookInstagramTwitter, and my app that is coming soon! That way, they can stay up to date on all my beauty on a budget fab finds! One thing we all can agree on is… Everyone loves saving money!

As The Beauty Frugalista, give me some words of advice for the person who doubts discount fashion.

Don’t be scared of the word “discount;” it only means savings!

Back to College: Fashion Essentials

It’s that time of year where children are collectively mourning the loss of freedom and adults are secretly embracing a new-found peace of mind.

That’s right… Back to School! 

It seems that this time of year gets over-inundated with back-to-school commercials, never ending school supply lists, and store sales. Elementary, junior-high and high school students are set long before the first day approaches, but we miss out on another major demographic: College students!

We have state schools, creative and performing arts schools, community colleges, private colleges, and so many more institutions that also experience “back-to-school” fever. So many different kinds of students deserve the same variety of fashion options to kick start the best years of their lives!

They say some of life’s richest experiences happen while in college, so why not look your best while they’re happening?

If anyone needs a back-to-school sale (and if the “broke college student” stigma is true) it’s our undergrads who need to see that they can look like a million bucks without taking out another loan.

We’ve put together a back-to-college lookbook for all of our 18 to 20-something-year-olds who wistfully miss the joys of all things back-to-school.

For the First Day of Classes:

Keep it comfy and stylish with something that makes a statement without going over the top. A little can really say a lot.

For the Party:

Don’t be afraid to show some skin but keep it modest for the first one of the year. Don’t wanna be a one trick pony. 😉

For the Internship Interview:

Stick to the basics: blazers, collared shirts and midi skirts. Wait until you get the job to pull out the show-stopping looks.

For the 3-Day Weekend Trip:

Keep it comfortable for the road and bring out the chic vacay essentials for the remainder of the trip.

For Exam Day:

No need to show off for a 3-hour test, but when you go to grab post-exam lunch, you certainly don’t wanna look like you just rolled out of bed.

For the Thesis Presentation:

Think reserved with a touch of “step aside boys, smart and stylish future CEO coming through!”

The Bag Breakdown

We’re all ladies here, so let’s face it– We can’t go out empty handed. So, why not carry what speaks to you? Are you a satchel stuffer, a wristlet wearer or a clutch carrier? Find out which bag best fits your lifestyle and how to rock that look best!


For the ‘on-the-goers,’ choose a bag that’s smaller, lightweight and modest. Solid colors make it easy to match your everyday looks and effortless to interchange bags throughout the week. Choose a staple and then build your collection from there. If you’re into bright colors but need to dress more basic for work, grab a bag that shows your personality. Crossbodys are perfect for the errand-runners and city girls who are in need of a simple solution that doesn’t take away from the chic style they were born to rock.

Handbags starting at $2.99

Handbags starting at $12.99

For the ‘the world is my runway’ girls, a clutch will be your go-to. Spice up your already-fiery look with a statement clutch or wristlet for your classy, modern style. Since it’s such a small bag, don’t be afraid to show it off with poppy prints. Clutches aren’t reserved only as evening-wear; break out those babies for Sunday brunch with friends! If you’re not a collector of things, you’ll have no problem keeping up with only a phone, lipstick and some cash. Go from day to night with a detachable wrist or shoulder strap and get ready to rock the rock the streets runway.

For the ‘just throw it in the bag’ ladies, this piece is a definite essential in your duffle, tote, or bookbag. To keep things (semi) organized, invest in a durable– but cute– cosmetic bag to hold everything you’ve lost and replaced too many times to count. It’s like a catch-all for your bag, and who doesn’t need that? You may decide to fill it with your endless makeup collection, all of the pens that mysteriously end up at the bottom of your bag, or lotion and hand sanitizer that seems to break every time you buy a new one. Give your belongings a home within a home and never lose sight of what’s really important…the bag you put it in!
