We are so pleased to introduce to you the PS Collection by Sociably Yours!
The PS (Page Stroud) Collection is a collection of custom blended, long-wearing, high pigmented statement lip colors.
With so many options on the market for lip colors, Stroud set out to work with beauty industry maven and friend licensed aesthetician Araneetae Guy of Sweet Air Cosmetics, to create a collection of beautiful colors that look beautiful on every shade of every woman.
A fashionista, Nichols Stroud has created a signature style all her own. It seemed very natural when she contacted Guy to begin this journey. "It's still surreal that I have my very own collection of lip colors," giggles Page Nichols Stroud. "I love the confidence that I, we as women get when we know we look good. Applying a statement lip color that is sure to turn heads, well who wouldn't want to do that?" Each color is custom blended by Araneetae Guy with complete input from Page. "We go back and forth via text, email, phone calls, whatever it takes until we know we have what I am envisioning. Even when I receive the colors I'm still in awe of how gorgeous they are."
The PS Collection consists of lipglosses, matte lipsticks, and matte liquid lip colors. In colors from pinks, reds, nudes, shimmers and rich glamorous purples, the collection has something for everyone. The names of the lip colors also give the people something to talk about as well. With names like "Cheers" and "The Applause," you will want to have one of every color in your bag.
Having hosted a few smaller events to introduce the collection, Sociably Yours is looking forward to hosting their first Holiday Pop Up Shop at the intimately beautiful JH Adams Inn in downtown High Point. The Holiday Pop Up Shop will feauture the signature colors of the collection, new colors for the season and other wonderful vendors to create the ultimate shopping experience. The Holiday Pop Up Shop is scheduled for Friday, November 18. Immediately following the Pop Up Shop, Shop Sociably on the sociablyyours.com website will be live.
Our journey just got more colorful so stay tuned!

Deciding what to wear can be a daunting task but decided what to wear to an industry conference with your peers, frightening!
I had the pleasure of attenting the annual Wedding MBA Conference in Las Vegas last week. This was my first time attending along with many of other industry friends so I was kinda on my own with determining what will make the wardrobe cut.
Wedding planners are extremely creative and stylish individuals so my attire for the week needed to reflect that and then some, lol. As any good traveler does, I looked at the weather report. Every day was packed full of sunshine but not to be fooled, conference centers tend to only have one climate, cold.
In packing I do try to establish my color palette as to limit myself in the amount of shoes and accessories I must then chose from. I went with classic blue and black and build my wardrobe from there. As I reveiwed the itinerary for the days I determined that I must have a look for the day and a look for the evening, in the event we decided to go out on the town.
I selected dresses primarily for this conference because lets face it, I LOVE dresses! Dresses are my favorite go-to and require less effort to create the polished look that I strive to present. I kept it simple with the footwear and chose my Coach flats to ensure I was stylish AND comfortable. I accesorized my outfits with pearls, big hair and signature lip colors from the PS Collection by Sociably Yours for the ultimate polished Sociably Yours look.
So when getting ready for your next conference trip, keep these tips in mind
