Winters in the southwest are pretty mild, relatively speaking. Early mornings in the desert can be cold, but all in all, there’s a reason why northerners flock to Arizona October to April.

There is something really chic about a winter white suit. I remember a photo of a model stepping out of a car in a beautiful, long, winter-white coat over a white suit. Stunning. Maybe not practical, but isn’t it nice to be impractical once in a while? White isn’t the color you necessarily think of… Read More Winter White
With a last name like Greenwell, it’a inevitable I do the occasional ‘Wearin’ o’ the Green.” With St. Patrick’s Day less than a month away, it seemed a good time to show off my inner leprechaun.

Colorblock patterns can draw the eye up or down, depending on the colors used and… Read More Colorblock

If a dress in hanging inconspicuously on a store hanger, can I honestly say I’m drawn to the style? I… Read More Are You Drawn First to Color?
It may be early February, but there is definitly a feel of summer in the air of the southwest. We’re flirting with temps in the mid-80s which is just crazy! What’s a girl to do? I’m greeting the temps with bells on! I’m not waiting until Easter to break out the whites. How could I… Read More With Bells On
