Being Iconic

Dress shabbily, and they remember the dress. Dress impeccably, and they remember the woman.

What’s in Your Bag?

What’s in Your Bag?

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.

A Girl’s Best Friends—Shoes!

A Girl’s Best Friends—Shoes!

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...

Spring FLASH Sales—Apparel!

Spring FLASH Sales—Apparel!

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.

This spring fashion season is just lots of fun in every direction and that includes accessories. The round shape of the aviator, stripes in all kinds of looks and some very fun hats all add to the adventure of this season.

Dress for Success — Final Sale!

When it comes to gauging one’s success, the handbag that you carry is second only to the shoes that you wear in terms of letting others know where you fall in the spectrum. That being said, I will always urge you to invest in your bags. You will love shopping for the investment bags that you covet at a fraction of the price you would pay if you walked into any of the retailers who carry them… See what we’ve found at The RealReal that you’re going to love!

‘Paris, Capital of Fashion’ Review: The City of Sartorial Love

Have you ever wondered how Paris became the undisputed epicenter of the fashion world? The short answer is, there’s no one specific reason, but in the Wall Street Journal’s review of the Museum at FIT’s Fall exhibit, you’ll find a few causes rooted in the city’s history and penchant for being “over-the-top” that explain how the story unfolds.

Celebrity Street Style — November

How to Avoid the Craftiest Counterfeit Watches

Counterfeits in the luxury watch industry are becoming more commonplace than you think…Even the savviest of shoppers have been known to be duped into buying counterfeit versions of their favorite luxury brand watches. Fortunately for us, The Wall Street Journal is on top of the situation. If you’re in the market, you’re going to want to read on to avoid possibly making a very expensive mistake in the purchase of your our own timeless timepiece!

The Look – October

This month we shot The Look at Free People…one of my favorites! We had a marvelous time with all the adorable treasures we found and they are all so wonderfully priced… From the flares to the utility pants, easy, timeless, simple tops and some very fun bags—each was casual adorable and so budget friendly!
This is a place to load up—and be sure to do so before these gems are gone! Happy viewing and shopping!

The Look – September

This month we shot The Look at Neiman Marcus Northpark—the gem of the Neiman Marcus chain. I always refer to that store as Disneyland for clothes… and it absolutely lived up to that name. This is a departure from our usual version of The Look, in that we normally are aiming for style that is budget friendly for you to put looks together. And we usually stay super casual. This time we did some casual but there are a few things dressier. The price points are higher, just to give you a heads up but I do think you will love what you see.

The Look – August

This month we took The Look to Madewell and had such a marvelous time with all the well-priced treasures you see here! Each piece stands on its own merit as worthy of owning to mix and match with goodies you already own or to create the looks you are seeing. Each look we put together is a show-stopper and we hope you will love it all as much as we do!

So, check out what we have found and know you will love and act on it ASAP as this only goes for two weeks, then back to full price and worse—it goes in an absolute flash! Happy shopping!!

So… enjoy these fabulous cool summer looks that will be wonderful additions to your summer dressing!

The Look – May

This month for The Look it turned out to be the perfect storm in so many ways… Between sick models, potentially life threatening storms, photographer vacation, model vacation and Bob getting sick—well the shoot just didn’t happen, lol! That being said, we thought we would try something we think could be style enhancing for you and lots of fun. Instead of The Look, we pulled items and created “looks” for you from a variety of the fabulous choices we are showing this month on the site. Mostly they are super cost conscious and all are adorable. Have fun!
