What to Wear Where!

Say the title of this blog 5 times fast. Lol, hard right?

Another hard thing this time of year can be finding the perfect outfit for a holiday party or event but don’t you fret! We’ve got ya covered! From the fancy soiree to the casual work party to dinner at Grandma’s, check it out:

For the Fancy Event:

Got an office that overdoes it every year? Or maybe you are thinking ahead to New Years Eve! Here are our top pics:

what to wear to a fancy Christmas party

Fancy look #1 is this fitted, high neck, sleeveless number. The metallic sheen makes it perfect for NYE or add some red or green baubles for a Christmasy look!

Fancy look #2 is this shimmery skirt! Rock it like our model with a black top and booties! It would also look super cute with a pair of tights!

Fancy look #3 is this tulle skirt…nothing says glam like tulle! Tuck in your favorite sweater and throw on your favorite pumps cause Santa is comin’ to town!

For the Casual Event:

The office lets you go casual for this years party…what to wear?! Check out these options:

what to wear for a casual christmas party

Casual party outfit #1 is this long sleeve tee! Nothing says “I love Christmas” more than a graphic tee and guess what?! We have 3 different ones you can choose from!

Casual party outfit #2 can go from fancy tucked into a pencil skirt to casual with jeans in 5 seconds flat. This top has a v neck line and is sure to turn heads.

Casual party outfit #3 is this button-backed floral top. Mele Kalikimaka to you!

For Christmas and Chill:

Let’s face it, on Christmas you are trying to be comfy, enjoy some cookies and time off. Get comfy in one of these three looks…

what to wear

Comfy look #1 is oh so soft. This sweater can be dressed up with jeans and heeled booties or down with sweat pants and last months pedicure. Your call, no judgement here.

Comfy look #2 is perfect for hiding the food baby you get from going to Grandma’s. Plus it is real cute so win/win.

Comfy look #3 bringing chevron back to life! Rock this asymetrical sweater with boyfriend jeans pumps like our model or with leggings and uggs. Either way, you’ll be comfy and cute.

No matter the occasion or season, the Foxy Flamingo Boutique has you covered online and in the store at the 10.5 mile post in Nags Head! And be sure to check out our gift guide for the perfect gift for anyone on your list!

Merry Christmas Foxy Fashionistas!

Wild Ones

With the Jungle Book hitting theaters over the weekend and this song stuck in our heads, we are feelin’ extra inspired by wild and tropical looks. From palm prints to shapes that remind of daiquiris we are ready for a little vay-cay!

Look #1: Wild Tribal Tassels

Wild tassel shorts

Tassels are everything these days and we couldn’t get our hands on these shorts fast enough! Do you have your Memorial Day #ootd yet? Because this blue and red print would make you the most fashionable girl at the party.

Look #2: Citrus or Else

wild lime purse

Don’t just put the lime in the coconut, wear it on your hip! This bag is so chic and also comes in a watermelon shape and a lemon shape (for those of you that have an aversion to limes because of a wild tequila night 😉 lol).

Look #3: Palm De Replay

wild palm print dress

Wrap dresses are already one of our fav go-to’s because they are such an easy classic. The silhouette is always flattering and cotton material is so comfy. Add palm leaves and say hello to our new fav dress!

So, will we find you where the wild things are? If so, snap a pic of you in your Foxy wear! You could win sweet stuff down the road! And make sure to stop by the store to see how we’ve expanded the next time you are close by!

More is better…

Do y’all remember the AT&T commercials with the kids? Well, this week we couldn’t get the  “We want more” commercial off of our minds (watch here, lol).  That little girl is so relatable and we think that more is definitely better SO we are excited to announce our expansion!

Behold…the new side of the Foxy Flamingo!

more is better: new store

It features new built-in’s to hold a growing collection of our foxy pieces (because more is better, obvi) and even an adorable sitting area!

more is better: PINK

It is truly a girl’s paradise, with surprises around every corner!

more is better housewares

Looking for a gift? We’ve got it…AND we will even wrap it for you!

So, why expand? Our Foxy founder, Betsy, knew it was the right time when she saw how the store’s capacity and it’s customers happiness were constantly  exploding at the seams! “When the spot opened up next door, I knew it was meant to be!” said Betsy.

The process took just a few weeks and now we are ready to show the world! Oh, and of course we added some fun upgrades to the original half of the store…

more is better: old store

We are so blessed to have each customer and are so excited for this continued adventure! Thank you to every local for your constant support and every vacationer that puts us on their must-see destination list each summer! We wouldn’t be who we are without each and every one of you!

Want to see more? After all more is better ;)! Come on by! We are open and ecstatic to share our new space with you!

Outfit for a Date Night

Whether you are single, in a new relationship, or been married for years, having an occasional date night is a must!

There is something about getting gussied up and going out on that town that makes us feel refreshed and beautiful, can we get an amen? So we have put together a few looks to help inspire your look for your next date night. So watch this smoky eye makeup tutorial and get ready, cause here we go…

Date Night Look 1: Bronze Goddess

date night dress

When we think about getting glam, metallics immediately come to mind. This copper dress is the perfect amount of classy, with the long sleeves, and sexy, with the open back.

Add some tights or knee high boots for warmth and you are good to go!

Date Night Look 2: Romantic A-Line

date night

In our opinion, an A-Line dress is one of God’s gifts to fashion. It is always fashionable and flattering. This red number with keyhole neckline and long sleeves goes from dinner to dancing as easy as 1, 2, 3.

It is also a more conservative dress that would also look great with a scarf at church!

Date Night Look 3: High Neck 90’s Gal

date night

The first time we noticed the high neck coming back into style, we were so pumped! We will forever cherish the Spice Girl look and this dress is the epitome of that!

date night

This fun dress is flirty and adjustable for a girl of any height!

Date night

We know what your thinking,…”there’s nothing fun to do and get dressed up for.” Life is what you make of it! So be that girl that initiates the fun! Host a semi fancy wine and cheese party, tell your man you got a baby sitter and y’all are going to your fav restaurant, the Oscars are coming up in a month…host a killer viewing party with fun games like this bingo! The possibilities are endless! Make sure to send us pics too so we can see all the fun 😉

PS don’t forget to stop by this Saturday if you are attending the OBX wedding expo! You could win a $100 gift card to the foxiest place in the Outer Banks to help get your bridesmaids gifts or a cute outfit for your next bridal occasion 😉

You can also personalize them to say just about anything you want. “Mermaid” and “Salty” are two of our favorites. Our inventory is always changing when it comes to these beauties so be sure to give us a call if you want to reserve any special ones for your Bridesmaids.

Maybe you like the idea of a necklace but want something louder, more colorful, like your friendship with your best gals. These handmade tassel necklaces are always a huge hit!

They look great in the summer with a fun floral dress or even in the winter over a basic black top, like our model below is wearing…

Another great option would be a new clutch! Because time with your girls is always “clutch.” Lol.

These are oh so versatile with a detachable strap and come in practically every color so you could even choose one to match your wedding color pallet! #toocute

Layer Up!

Did we call it being warm on Christmas or WHAT?! Haha…it may have even been a new record. Anyhow, in the last week we have had a few cooler days so we are advising our customers to layer up!

There is nothing worse than bundling up for work only to be sweating by the middle of the day. Layering allows you to rock those winter looks but still be comfortable throughout the day.

One of our favorite layering techniques of the season includes utilizing patterns!

jacket layer 2

Layer Tip 1: Throw on a jacket and a hat!

This utility jacket with fair isle patterned sweater arms is oh so soft and cozy! Our model has the coat as a top layer with a basic tank underneath and a long hot pink necklace for a pop of color. Not only is this hat ultra chic, but it is perfect for keeping warm. After all, most of our internal heat releases from our heads!

jacket layer

Layer Tip 2: Sun’s out, guns out.

Its no secret that we love a good vest for a top layer, but when its got a great pattern AND tassels, we are alllll about it! A vest may seem like a  goofy choice for trying to keep warm but they are actually a Godsend. They allow insulation for your body but keep your arms free. No need to roll up your sleeves here.

vest layer 2

Not only does this vest look great with the casual outfit that the model is wearing it with, but it would also look perfect layered over a dress with booties for a date night.

When choosing your layers, you can’t go wrong with neutrals. You can pair them with practically anything and get maximum use out of them through winter and even into the spring! But most importantly, have fun with it!

Your New Years Eve Outfit

Did you know New Years Eve is just 13 days away?!

We always have customers rushing in after Christmas on the hunt for something sparkly because with so much effort going into Christmas, we always seem to put New Years on the back burner…but not this year! Consider this your reminder to find that special sparkly number…and we have the perfect one in mind!

new years eve top gold

This glitter crop top is a great choice for New Years Eve because it is enough of a blank slate to be worn a ton of different ways!

new years eve top gold

Wear it casually, like our model, to a chill get together with friends! Add this gorgeous All Washed Up Necklace and floppy wool hat to complete the look. We love mixing metals this season too, so don’t be afraid to pair gold with silver!

…Or wear it with a high wasted black skirt, tights, heels and maybe some pearls for a fancier look. Either way, you are sure to stun and be on trend.

New years eve top silver

Not a gold girl? Don’t worry, we have it in silver for you too 😉

New Years eve top

We know a lot of people love crop tops (like us, obvi) but there are a few out there that shy away from the trend for fear of showing their tummy…fear not ladies. Pairing the top with something high wasted on the bottom protects you from showing skin AND is actually extremely flattering! The crop allows your torso to look longer and your waist smaller! Sounds like a win-win to us!

We hope your New Years Eve is a Foxy one!

Be sure to send us pictures of you in your Foxy wear for a chance to be featured!
