Pinterest Style Inspiration

If you have yet to hear of Pinterest, it's time to come out from under that rock and check out the latest online addiction since Facebook. You can spend hours browsing and 'pinning' recipes, decor ideas, craft ideas and...our inspiration.

You can find plenty of Clemson gameday outfit inspiration on Pinterest (follow us because we are ALWAYS pinning great finds!) - get inspired and then recreate the looks using clothes you already have in your closet.

Here are a few of our most recent Pinterest finds that we would love to see translated into Clemson gameday looks...

Loving this look for the Spring game...lace shorts? Yes please!

This next look is a genius way to create a new look with a maxi dress you've already worn - just throw a (purple) crop top tee on top and a fun statement necklace.

Love, love, love this look - again, another easy way to create a new look with a maxi dress. Throw on a jean vest, carry a bright (purple) colored clutch, and 'top' it off with a fun top knot hairstyle.

Create an entirely new look for a gameday dress you've already worn last season by pairing it with a white button up shirt and big, bright orange flower pins. And you can't go wrong with wedges.

You can also find plenty of celebrity style on Pinterest. What do you think about pairing two different shades of orange? Definitely puts a new spin on 'solid orange' don't you think?

I really love the combination of patterns in this look - orange stripes on orange stripes. It just works. This would be a cute look in the Fall with jeans.

And finally, I never thought I'd hear myself say this, but I'm really starting to like orange and pink together. Accenting your orange gameday looks with a little pink could be fun for the Spring Game.

What do you think of these looks above? Feel inspired for gameday?

Introducing RubyMac from McAuleys (+ a giveaway)

Good morning!

We are so excited about today's post.

Long time Clemson Girl sponsor and local Anderson boutique McAuley's Unique Boutique has launched their very own dress line --- RubyMac.


Why launch their own line? The ladies at McAuleys started to notice that every boutique seems to stock the same items. It became a constant struggle to remain unique, especially in today's economic environment. They also found it difficult to offer items in a wider range of sizes and apparel that would appeal to a wider audience.

So one day the idea came to them -- if they couldn't find apparel that their customers wanted in the right colors or the right sizes or the right design, then why not just create it themselves.

The name RubyMac is a combination of McAuley's owners' furry little friends' names - Ruby and Mac. After struggling to come up with a name, the idea came in a dream. Yup, a dream. The naming story is pretty neat if you want to read the full story here.

Initially the styles and sizes are limited as they get their 'feet wet', but stay tuned because more styles (including styles for a wider age range) and more sizes will soon be launched!

The dresses are super cute. If you're planning on attending the Carolina Cup, these dresses would be perfect. Since this initial launch has limited styles and sizes, you're guaranteed to stand out in a crowd with a unique dress at Carolina Cup. And all of these dresses look great paired with big, wide-brim hats!

You can currently buy RubyMac dresses through the McAuleys website,

What really gets us excited about this new line is that since McAuleys will be designing and creating these dresses, we will definitely be seeing a lot of orange and purple in their designs as we get closer to Fall. {happy dance}.

McAuleys is also planning to eventually take custom orders and create designs just for YOU. Have you always envisioned that perfect dress for gameday? It won't be long until you can make it a reality with the help of McAuleys.

What do you think of these amazing dresses? Which designs are your favorites?
