I know somewhere there is an over dressed anonymous meeting. Raise your hand if you need to go to those meetings too! Even when you tell me not to dress up, and I really try NOT to dress up I still end up being dressed up — especially if you give me too much time.
Summer is here in all its glory with it lush green grass, an array of flowers and the sting of the hot sun. It’s also an opportunity to go bold in your wardrobe! With greenery being the pantone color there’s lots of green pieces in the store. I chose to go one of my favorite
There was a time when we were all looking for that statement shoe — I like to call them my “speak to me shoes.” — or even a statement bag. Today however, we are all about the statement sleeves — frilled, ruffled, bubbled, bishop…you name it! (Cue Shirley Caesar’s song HA!) Its quite fascinating actually.
Growing up I used to read a lot of Danielle Steele novels. One story in particular the heroine never wore jeans or even sneakers for that matter. She always wore tailored pants. If you know anything about Danielle Steele novels you know her characters were always classy, well educated and well traveled. I remember thinking
Last week I went to New York and Co. I only went to purchase a gift card or so I thought. Who was I fooling though!?! The clothes were literally calling my name. Needless to say a little floral blouse happened to leave with me. [yes happened, don’t you judge me!!! LOL] I didn’t buy
The fact is I just love flowers — any and all kinds. Alas, I’ll hold my hand up high and declare I do not have a green thumb. Though I can’t get flowers to grow in my garden they are more than welcome in my closet! So when designers give a nod to florals —
So somehow running evolved into a high jump – several high jumps actually. After all who can resist a flying leap over a fountain even if just figuratively — especially while wearing your Nike Air Zoom Pegasus and cute athletic wear? Added to that according to Greek mythology Pegasus was a winged stallion. So “flying”
Soooooo it’s a long weekend. We all know this translates into at least a little bit (or a lot) of shopping especially if Nordstrom is having its half yearly sale!!! I’ve shared my top picks with you all under $50.00!!! You cannot beat that! These $28.00 jeans and that red tassel necklace are begging for
Step hems and holes in jeans are a do! Recently however while skimming through instagram I saw a post of some really holey jeans with the step hem. I’m not talking ripped or frayed but huge holes – rat bitten almost. And they looked oh so haute! I couldn’t help but ask myself when did
The off the shoulder trend which highlights the femininity and delicate lines of the shoulder is alive and well. We can all thank Michelle Obama and her cold shoulder look for that! When I think of the shoulders though, I don’t think of delicate. I think of strength. There’s an old proverb which says “don’t
Sitting waiting for the train this week reminded me that God’s never ever fashionably late. Sometimes however, the wait is the hardest part of the journey. I’m so thankful though for the promise that “they that wait on the Lord, shall mount up with wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, and
I have a special relationship with color. I just love it. The more color I can slide into an outfit the happier I am. And when I can pull off a non “matchy matchy” outfit I feel a deep sense of accomplishment. Some may rely on guidelines for playing with colors. If you usually avoid
