Everlane for Fall

September 23, 2020

I can’t stop gushing about how much I love fall.  Here in California, we usually have to wait until mid-October for any sign of actually fall weather, but we got teased with some last week and I’m so ready and excited!

Even though it’s my favorite season, ironically I don’t look that good in a lot of fall colors. I’m more of a cooler tone.  But I can’t help but think my gamble paid off with this “Currant” color turtleneck from Everlane.  Loving this color for me, if I do say so myself!

5 Fall Trends You Can Definitely Rock Over 40!

October 30, 2018

Fall is in full swing and I couldn’t be happier!  I love fall weather, fall food, fall holidays, and fall clothing, including this fall’s style’s trends! I thought it was time to do a little review of some of my biggest style trends this fall. Sure, as more mature women, we’re seldom chasing trends like our younger counterparts, but we also like to look up-to-date, relevant, and just plain have some fun with fashion!  Here are few trends that you can absolutely ROCK in midlife and beyond!

Animal Print

Animal print is HUGE this fall!  Though leopard has been a classic for awhile, this fall the trend is extra popular!  Whether it’s classic leopard, colored leopard, zebra, or snakeskin, you can’t go wrong letting your queen of the jungle out to play right now!  Be sure to wear this trend in the way that works best for you. Pick a more subtle print or a wild one; wear one animal print piece, or go animal print crazy! Usually I prefer to use animal print in small doses, like accenting an outfit with a leopard belt, bag or a pair of shoes.  However, with leopard absolutely everywhere this season, I gave in and got a leopard tunic length button front shirt that I admit to just loving and wearing all the time!

NYFW Day One – Thursday: Lan Yu, Paris Hilton, & Soft Surroundings

September 11, 2018

I always go back and forth about how I want to document my New York Fashion Week adventures. But as a blog reader myself, I really enjoy the daily diary type of posts, so I’m going to stick with that. They always make me feel like I’m totally along for the ride and I hope I can make you feel like you’re along for the ride too!  My days were so full though, that I’m going to be splitting each day into two posts: morning/afternoon and then evening.

Wardrobe Building Basics – The LBD

January 21, 2018

I’m starting a new series on basics for wardrobe building and how can I not start with the best and most fundamental, the Little Black Dress?  One reason so many of us buy a lot but still look in our closet and claim we have nothing to wear is because we focus on the bright shiny new stuff and forget the basics. At least that’s been my issue in the past, a wardrobe that’s all spice no substance.  Though some women do seem to have the opposite problem and could stand to add a little pizazz!

Let me start with a cute story.  Many years ago, my father called me one day and said that in the doctor’s waiting room he read in a magazine that every woman needed a Little Black Dress and he wanted to make sure I had one!  Haha …. Daddy!  (Damn, I miss him and my mom so much!)
