Lilac and Pearls

When I think of pearls, I immediately think of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.¬† The iconic picture of Holly Golightly in her black dress, opera gloves and over-the-top pearl necklace is probably one of the most recognized from the glamour days of Hollywood. These wonderfully embellished jeans were on the front table of my… Read More Lilac and Pearls

Sweater Weather (Sort of)

It’s sweater weather! Okay, not here in the Southwest, but a girl can dream, especially because I know cooler weather is coming soon. ūüôā¬† A little wrap like this cute number from Chico’s placates my desire for sweaters without smothering me in too-warm layers. don’t you love the unusual way it wraps?

I May Have Embellished

What do you think of embellished jeans? Aren’t they fun? If variety is the spice of life, you’ll find a smorgasbord of flavor with the options available. From fringe to jewels to fabric patches, I’m constantly amazed by the styles I find.¬† I hope you don’t let age limit you – most embellised styles are… Read More I May Have Embellished

Texture

The all-white room. I’ve always loved the look, and I’ve been intrigued by the way interior designers can make it come to life. The secret with a monochromatic look, especially with white or cream, is texture. You need different fabrics to create visual interest and you really need to find ways to create depth. Without… Read More Texture

Think Pink

Now that fall is here, what do you think about pink? True, I’ve waited for months to bring out the darker autumn colors, and I’m relishing that fact, but there’s just something about pink.¬† In its lighter tones its flattering to just about every skin tone.¬† It can soften an edgier look without seeming frilly… Read More Think Pink

Golden Girl

With the idea of mixing styles, I wanted to do something completely different with my J.Jill sweater.¬† Rather than top a silky slip dress with something equally glitzy, the tweedy sweater was a great contrast in texture and pattern.¬† There is just a hint of golden beige in the sweater’s knit to pair with the… Read More Golden Girl

All Checked Out

Do you ever want to dress up a skirt or shift dress, but a blazer just sounds too confining? A long-line sweater could be the answer. The key to achieving a tailored look with a sweater is a tight, smooth knit. Big, bulky sweaters have their place, but they don’t lend themselves to the streamlined… Read More All Checked Out
