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!

As a concept, the idea of pre-owned is genius! If you are like me, you love luxury… and yet sometimes it isn’t in the budget. As a stylist I often work with the resellers to pass on my client’s fabulous goodies that they are letting go of, so I know how carefully items are checked over before they accept or reject a piece. This makes for a delicious possibility in terms of your acquiring something you desire for a much more palatable price. Check out what we’ve found and love… and happy shopping!
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!

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!

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.

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.
