A.L.C. – Wearable & Classic

A.L.C. – Wearable & Classic

Growing up in Barrie, Ontario- a small city about an hour outside of Toronto- one of the biggest and most popular stores at the local mall was American Eagle. Like many teenagers who frequented the Georgian Mall, AE was my favorite place to shop for years! 

After moving to Houston, being exposed to the shopping possibilities of a huge metropolitan city in a fabulous mall like The Galleria, I quickly discovered the fashion world outside of my longtime favorite American Eagle; learning about amazing designers and how to dress for my body!

It wasn’t until about two years ago, while browsing through Saks Fifth Avenue, that I came across and purchased the cutest dress! It looked so flattering on me and whenever I wore it I got so many compliments. After being asked the question numerous times, I knew to tell people it was a designer called A.L.C. I had no idea who/what was A.L.C, but quickly feel in love with the brand.

Andrea Liberman, the designer behind A.L.C, was previously a stylist to some of my favorite celebs. (J-Lo and Kate Hudson to name a few) A.L.C first launched in 2009. Andrea created this brand with the idea of all of her pieces will be wearable and classic. I am currently doing some “fall cleaning” in my closet, and you can bet I won’t be parting with any of my pieces from her collections! They are still super wearable.

The dress I am wearing in these pictures is from the Fall collection and is called the “Thalissa Cascade” dress! It’s super cute and flirty, and first wore it on this fun date night. I am slightly obsessed with the maroon color as it’s the color of Texas A&M the school where my niece currently goes, and where my sister and brother-in-law are alumni! I can’t forget to share my super cute shoes, they are by Saint Laurent, and they are the most comfortable!

California Dreaming

California Dreaming

Monarch Beach, California, is seriously one of my most favorite places on the planet! I had the pleasure of visiting Monaco this past May with my girlfriends, (which was definitely a close second), but there is just something about this place in Orange County. When my plane touches down, I just feel like I am “home”. I get this amazing burst of energy, as soon as the Cali sun hits my skin and I inhale the ocean and feel the slight breeze! I always say to my husband; I was born in Canada, I love living in Texas, but want to retire in California! It’s just so magical for me!

This summer Alana and Lindsey came out to Monarch Beach to visit my family. (We rent a house there for a month each summer to escape the Houston heat) This has been a tradition in my husband’s family forever! With the gorgeous California landscape as a backdrop, we shot many of the photos you’ve been seeing out there, and this particular evening, after shooting during the day, we headed out for a fabulous girls night, starting with dinner at the Monarch Beach Resort (formerly the St. Regis Monarch Beach). Over  cocktails and amazing dishes, we started the plans for the relaunch of ST that you are seeing today!

One thing I love to do when I get together with my friends is talk about future goals, in this case, we talked about what we wanted to see for the next year ahead for Sandra Tiffany, and we set some personal goals too! I think it is so important to put your dreams out into the universe. I have witnessed so many times in my own life, these manifestations coming back to me. I believe it is a form of asking God to lend a hand and really sets you up to take the necessary steps to achieve your dreams!

In these photos, I am wearing 7 for all mankind jeans, my blouse is Intermix’s brand, shoes are Saint Laurent and my cute clip board is from Target and the brand is called Sugar Paper.

Mane Obsession #madebylee

Mane Obsession #madebylee

My first hair fiasco was at 16 years old, when I took it upon myself to use peroxide on my dark brown virgin hair (while my Mom was out of course). The end result was an awful shade of orange as I’m sure you can imagine. (I know I’m not the only one who has done this… right??) I was absolutely mortified, as was my mother who came home to see her daughter’s fried orange locks. Opting out of school the next day, my mom took me to a salon to have it corrected. (I believe I lost some hair in the process, as it was the ol’ pull through the rubber cap technique that they used). It was at the salon that day that I was looking at their copy of “Hairstyle Guide” magazine with Britney Spears and Sarah Michelle Gellar on the cover, that I remember, as clear as day, how much I envied their hair styles/color and wished that one day, I would be able to have my hair done by a Celebrity Hairstylist who could transform my tresses to be like theirs.

Fast forward about 14 years to when I came across a charity auction website by chance and determined that you could bid on different experiences with celebrities. The auction that I bid on was to have my hair colored by “Celebrity Colorist” Jonathon Gale. When I learned I had actually won, I was ecstatic and could not WAIT to have my hair done! At that time, Jonathon he was working at Sally Hershingberger’s salon in West Hollywood. I, living in Houston Texas booked a flight out to LA for his first available appointment! My color looked amazing! I was so very pleased, but throughout the process, I learned that Jonathon only did color. I wanted a cut badly to complete my new look, so he referred me to one of his favorites, (who has now become one of mine too) Lee Rittiner! That day really changed my life.

It’s no surprise that Los Angeles, a city that’s obsessed with beauty, and not to mention one of the hair capitals of the world, is filled with tons of hair stylists. Many are good, few are excellent, and very few are masters. But let me confirm one thing: Lee Rittiner is a MASTER! Working and learning from the best in the industry (from Oribe to Garren), Lee has earned accolades that outnumber him in years (he’s only 30!), and now, with a cult following of Hollywood’s hottest stars, bloggers and clients from all over the world, I am enthralled to post photos of my hair and use his famous hashtag #madebylee.

I am SO happy to see that Lee is truly at the top of his game- his style is like no other! If there’s something you will get to know about me, it’s that I LOVE getting my hair cut/styled wherever I go, and I typically don’t commit to just one stylist for my hair. That being said, Lee is definitely one that if I lived closer, I would likely never see another person. He truly is an artist who understands shape and balance, and makes you look your best!

Over the last few years since our first encounter, he has become more than a stylist but a family friend. Along with his profound eye for style and artistic precision, he’s truly a great guy! I really had no notion of what a celebrity highstylist would be like, but I am so glad I met this one! If you’re in the LA area, or planning on being there, Lee Rittiner is now at the Alen M Salon in Melrose. His cuts are both incredibly chic and insanely flattering! Whether you’re looking for a trend-setting pixie to long, flowing layers, a haircut with Lee just may be the best cut and style you ever had and totally worth every dollar. My 16 year old self would be so envious of me and my celeb hair stylists. So long burnt orange…
