Dress shabbily, and they remember the dress. Dress impeccably, and they remember the woman.
— Coco Chanel

If you’ve been following our holiday gift-giving blogs, you’ll know how much Bobbi loves finding the perfect stocking stuffers! This week we’re sharing the best in beauty for all the stockings that you need to fill. Happy stocking shopping!
One of my favorite holiday shopping experiences is definitely looking for the perfect stocking stuffers. I love the charm, creativity, and just plain fun of this part of the holidays… once I find what I’m looking for. For me, it’s a stressor because not only do I want to find that perfectly clever gift, but I want whoever is going through their stocking to be loving every second of this joyous, happy moment…
One of the things I love most about the holidays is gift-giving. We experience such joy finding that perfect “something” for the people we care about and seeing the expression on their faces as they absorb the amount of care that went into your finding that perfect gift. Of course, the adventure of finding that oh-so-perfect gift is often accompanied by the exasperation of seeking it. It is our hope that what we have here will help simplify the process for you!
We love our cashmere—but this luxe look comes with a pricetag to match. Enter Naked Cashmere, whose marketing strategy keeps their prices lower than the labels in the designer retailers we all shop. See what spectacular treasures at even more spectacular prices, Bobbi has found for you!
The cold weather months bring with them a desire for cozy, luxury—what says “luxury” more than cashmere? This year, all indicators point to a quieter fall and winter season, which means more relaxed dressing, even during the holidays. But casual, relaxed dressing doesn’t mean you can’t still look like a million. Read on for Bobbi’s fabulous, luxe, cold weather cashmere finds!
If you are like me, your pajamas are like a cozy sanctuary. So, with the change of the season comes the desire for new jammies to snuggle in—not to mention sleeping socks and, of course, slippers. And what better to complete this cozy fall collection than with comfy robes! Let’s have some fun and see what Bobbi has in store!
Fall is the perfect time to reorganize and reprioritize—and that should include a closet cull and strategic wardrobe organization. Check out Bobbi’s all-new virtual closet system!
It’s time for Allure’s Best of Beauty Awards—and I’m going to share my favorites with you! I love everything about these Awards as Allure is one of my favorite “go-to” resources for beauty-related products. This year I am possessed by the beauty product winners in their Splurge section. I believe you will be as intrigued with the products I’ve chosen to share with you as I am! Here’s to beauty-ful days ahead!
One of my favorite wardrobe essentials is the crispy white shirt. This is simple and clean, yet possesses just enough interest to pop your look. Channel your inner Audrey Hepburn with this look and use it endlessly. It will give you fabulous chic!
In our world, essential shoes consist of all the categories that we live in endlessly, including sneakers, booties, and pumps. Keep in mind that not all silhouettes or leathers are equal however! Keep reading for Bobbi’s insight as to what shoes should comprise your ultimate, essential shoe wardrobe.
A very important finishing touch to every look you wear is the “third piece.” Therefore, it stands to reason, that this component is an essential part of your ultimate wardrobe. In any creative measure, things are always done in odd numbers. So, when you dress you have your top, your bottom and your third piece—which can be a cardigan, a sweater or a jacket. Simple and easy. See what fabulous third pieces we’ve found for your ultimate, essential wardrobe!
Your essential accessories should include chic, simple pieces intended for daily wearing. These are the finishing touches that really pull your look together, up your chic, and continue to build on your ultimate wardrobe.
Denim as a wardrobe essential is pretty obvious. What might not be obvious is the style of denim that will be the most flattering to your body and the most chic on you. Read up on the styles that are most flattering all around and be sure to add some denim chic to your ultimate wardrobe!
The white T shirt is an iconic essential in your wardrobe. Every fashion icon from Audrey Hepburn forward will tell you the white T shirt is a staple. What does it do? It pops everything and it goes with almost every category imaginable. Take a look at the sensational white Ts we think you should have in your essential wardrobe! Happy Shopping!
Our handbags are a true delight, but not only that, buy well and they’re also timeless investment pieces! The bags for fall are no exception to that rule. From a practical standpoint, our bags are a necessity. After all, how else would we get around with all our daily necessities? If you think about it, we spend more time with our bags than we do just about any other accessory in our lives—except maybe our phones, lol! That being said, this fall’s handbags are show-stoppingly gorgeous.

Shoes. Now, this is a subject near and dear to all our hearts. With that in mind, I figured you would all love to see what new shoes are in store for us this fall! How fun is that? Just so you are aware, I wanted to cover every price range in the glorious shoes we’ll cover, so you will note everything from designer to discounter in the shoes you see, and I am sure will end up loving them all!
Recently we had an opportunity to re-watch the Dove “Real Beauty Sketches” ad that went viral back in 2013 and we were reminded of how closely aligned its message is to that which we have been teaching for years—and that is the importance of the role that confidence plays in how we present ourselves to the world and how others perceive us. This video is a must-see for understanding how we as women operate—and it’s going to blow your mind.
This year’s trend report for fall and winter 2020/2021 is a real conundrum. Trend forecasting begins well in advance of the season in question, so these trends were set in motion long before we began having to shelter in place. With that in mind, here is my take on this season’s approach and selection of trends largely based on our “new normal.”
Today our Road Trip Adventure series takes a luxurious turn as we find ourselves relaxing in style at a luxe resort. Here we will want (and need) to be attired in head-to-toe fabulous chic, and you know Bobbi has shopped all the goods for you!
What would a summer road trip be without one that takes you to the beach? And the beach is exactly where we’re headed as we continue our Road Trip Adventure series! Today we’re focused on “Beach Bum Chic”—the consummate casual beach look for your trip to the beach.
The week our Road Trip Adventure continues as we visit our spectacular national parks—in style, of course! From boots and backpacks to sunglasses, we’ve got you covered… looking chic and adorable we might add!
The genius behind Dallas’ iconic Forty Five Ten (I always referred to it as Barney’s on steroids) is at it again… and we are possessed. Take a look at all the delicious pieces we’ve found for you at Brian Bolke’s newest boutique, The Conservatory. We promise you will NOT be disappointed!
In the last few weeks we have been focusing on the concept of stepping up our daily routine of getting ready for the day in a more proactive, “self-care” kind of way, and to help ease us all back into a little bit of our pre-pandemic lives, Bobbi has curated a fabulous collection of comfy, cozy lounge and sportswear that can be mixed and matched and will definitely elevate your look not to mention your outlook.
This week’s blog is the second in our series on remembering the importance of making yourself look the gorgeous pre-pandemic you. We have all fallen down when it comes to having established some pretty poor self-care routines during the last few months but now it’s time to re-establish some boundaries and new, healthier habits that will have you feeling much more “yourself” before you know it!
Ahh COVID…the changer of everything in our lives. Regardless of your particular life situation, COVID-19 has certainly changed everything about how we operate. Two of the things that have changed so drastically with the onset of the pandemic are how we dress and our self-care routines…and while life as we know it has definitely changed, after nearly four months in our PJs, it’s time to establish some new self-care routines in our new normal!
Lord knows we love our handbags… and this summer’s options are no exception to the “show-stoppers” rule. From oversized totes to raffia to croc effect and satchels, they are incredible. Some options are more suited to chic, dressed-up looks and others will take you anywhere. Regardless of which you choose, each of these bags is stunning and fun! See what we’ve found for you!
Shoes! A topic near and dear to all our hearts… Is it any wonder we’d want to devote a blog post to them? This season’s versatile choices in shoes will give you worlds of ideas to put a fun and chic twist on whatever look you want to create, and we’re going to share with you some of the styles that we are currently possessed by! Happy hunting!
One of my favorite fashion houses these days is Matches Fashion and they are yummy, yummy, yummy! Their range of fabulous product is truly a joy to the shopping heart, and so as you check out what we found—and found on sale no less—I think you will see what I mean.

With that in mind we have shopped some fabulous treasures in terms of swimwear, cover-ups, bags, and sandals. Everything we found is a candidate to make you feel your chicest and we think you will love what you see.
As the heat starts to build shorts are the handiest article of style we can use to feel more comfortable… And there are so many ways to wear them and so many different categories of them. So, this week we are sharing some spectacular short finds along with a few tops, third pieces, and shoes that you can easily pair with them to “up” your chic summer look.

For many folks an extended period of quarantine has meant extra time on the couch…while for others, it’s been the perfect opportunity to up their fitness game! We’re not going to judge, but chances are if you’re here, you’re looking to keep moving…and we’re so lucky that spring has finally made an appearance! Since you’ve likely been wearing your workout gear a LOT these days (even for lounging) you may want to consider splurging on a few new items for your fitness wardrobe. That said, here we go!
A woman’s handbag is her connection to the world and a tool from which to operate all day long after leaving the house. What we carry in our bag is critical to the ease with which we move through the day and the comfort with which we do that. We all find ourselves pulling things out of our bag numerous times throughout the day, so presenting a polished image of what we carry with us is part of a greater image.
We’ve all heard the phrase, “Shoes are a girl’s best friend.” Oh wait—was it diamonds? Well if it was, it should have been shoes! I’m not sure if you know this, but when people check you out, they begin and end with your feet. So, your shoes are...

This month we shot The Look at one of my favorite places…. Free People. And boy did it not disappoint!

Have fun… look carefully so you don’t miss a thing! And for sure… happy shopping!
One segment of Harper’s Bazaar that we love is “the well spent dollar.” We love it so much, in fact, that we have taken the concept and selected amazingly priced play items that Bobbi just loves! Here are our picks for April! Click. Shop. Enjoy!
A favorite design resource of mine is Moda Operandi. And as we’re seeing with so many retailers at the moment, Moda is offering some delicious treasures on sale. People are shopping like crazy right now, so if you see something you love, and we know you will, you’re going to want to grab it! Use the code 25OFF at checkout for 25% off your order!! Enjoy these fab finds… I am possessed by it all and think you will be as well.
Well—we can all agree these are crazy times, and to reflect that our favorite retailers have broken sale about a month and a half early. While these sales have only just begun and you may be thinking “hmmm, should I wait?” my answer is this… If you see something you are possessed by, grab it. Further markdowns are coming for sure, but as I shopped all these fabulous retailers, there is so much you’re not even seeing because it’s already sold out.
This season is going to be spectacular! I’m already seeing so many fabulous pieces to add to your wardrobe! Timeless with a twist is how I would describe this season.
