One Dress // Four Seasons

There is nothing I love more than versatility.  I have a few questions I ask myself when purchasing something new to add to my wardrobe (scroll down to find out how to build your year-round wardrobe at the end of the post!) Case in point?  This TopShop Leopard Dress I snagged at Nordstrom on a […]

Denim on Denim

I’m talking the denim on denim trend, perfect for Spring and five simple tips for mastering it.   I’ve seen the occasional photo pop-up in my Pinterest feed – a perfectly put-together woman, chic-ly (let’s pretend that’s a real word, mkay?) long legs gracefully crossing the street (or the enviable thigh gap – my thighs […]

Polished Pieces

It’s Love Time!  Single, dating, new relationships, old relationships, marriage, whatever your status is, it’s time to celebrate love.  If you’re lucky (and it’s what you were hoping for) then you will end up with a little paper box in varying shapes and colors, filled with sparkly gemstones that have been polished to “Where my sunglasses […]

Trend: Fringe

A few months ago, a friend sent a text admitting to being tempted by a fringe covered handbag. <gasp>  Just kidding!  With the rise of trendy music festival Coachella, the tail-end of the popular Roaring Twenties a la The Great Gatsby and Sean Kelly’s stunning fringe masterpieces on Project Runway, fringe is in!  Don’t worry […]

Breakfast in Bed

When I think of luxury (thank you very much Wayfair.com) I think of warm, cozy beds, and lazily lying in them while the sun slowly filters in through the curtains.  Maybe my five year-old joins us for morning snuggles; maybe my eight year-old will try to join us as well.  Then fighting will ensue and […]

1 Red Dress 5 Ways

I love being able to shop my own closet (code for not-buy-anything-new-because-I-have-no-more-room.)  I bought this red satin dress from H&M last holiday season for under $20 (did you?!)  You can’t wear a red satin dress too often without people realizing you have been wearing the same thing…..it sorta stands out.   While it’s always flattering […]

Gift Guide: for Her

I’m still in shock at how quickly time flies.  I hate to be cliché, but seriously – bat an eyelash and bam! your children are grown. Or Christmas is only two weeks away.  I’m stockpiling gifts in my bedroom, in the basement, in any empty space I have left to hide gifts before the big […]

Holiday Style

This is a Fashionista Event and a promotional item was provided to me by Sweetworks. Hosts for this event are Still Blonde after all these Years and ModlyChic. As much as I love styling for holiday parties, I have to admit that decorating around the home has – in recent years – become much more fun.  Sure, sugar-crashes […]

Busy Days

The holiday season has officially begun and I suddenly find myself busy with life; volunteering, lunchtime, parties, decorating, crafts, angry mom emails – you know, the usual.  And my house is a mess. So forgive me for wearing leggings 6 out of 7 days.  At  least the shoes are comfy, right? (p.s. I’m wearing these […]

Things You Should Be Consigning

With every changing of the seasons comes closet-cleanings, wardrobe re-stockings and the inevitable shopping (even if it ends up being from your own closet.)  Now is the perfect time to assess your wardrobe (and anything in your closet.)  Anything with stains or holes can be re-purposed (mine become rags or get sewn into quilts – […]

Organize Your Accessories, Part 1

 I love nothing more than accessories; jewels, pearls, golds, sterling silvers, bracelets, earrings, necklaces, rings, you name it.  Organizing my jewelry, especially necklaces and earrings, is another matter!  Coco Chanel is famous for advising that you should take off one accessory before leaving the house.  I say do whatever makes you feel fabulous (unless that […]
