Today’s special item is this gorgeous metallic-hued pompom hat from Jocelyn. It comes in gold (featured), silver, and black and boasts a dyed fox fur pompom beanie. I … Read More Winter Wonderland of Gifts

The Allure of Faux Fur

This year, winter coats positively celebrate and elevate faux fur. I would argue, in fact, that with all the gorgeous faux options, there is absolutely no reason to pay for and wear the real deal. Faux fur has really come into its own. Not only does it look great, it also feels so soft and cocooning that wearing it is akin to being hugged … Read More The Allure of Faux Fur

Body Beautiful

As I was working out the other day, I noticed how the younger women in my group training session had beautiful, unblemished arms and decolletage.(After so many years of chasing a bronzed body via the sun, I am left with mottled arms and a decolletage sprinkled with freckles and other sun damage.) I realized in that moment that not only do we need to … Read More Body Beautiful

Hellbent for Leather

I have a confession…I love leather. When the leaves turn and the temps begin to drop, nothing feels more appropriate than a supple pair of leather leggings or leather pants. And, this season, they are turning up in styles that go well beyond the basic legging. I have spotted them in a very flirty crop flare trouser style–cing a sept and UNRAVEL–thank you very … Read More Hellbent for Leather

Wrap It Up

I love functional clothing. You could argue that all clothing is functional, serving to shelter our bodies from the elements, etc. But, I believe some pieces are more functional/versatile than others. Case in point–the shawl. Not only does a beautiful shawl have the power to add a certain je ne sais quoi to an outfit, it also imparts a layer of warmth on chilly … Read More Wrap It Up

Trending for Fall 2018: Buckled Ankle Boots

When I was recently in Las Vegas, shopping at the Forum in Caesar’s Palace, I found myself somewhat smitten with the window display at ALLSAINTS…the same window display featured in today’s photo. What I loved most was the look of buckled ankle boots paired with a dress. But I have to confess, it was really the boots that made the greatest impression. I keep … Read More Trending for Fall 2018: Buckled Ankle Boots

Combat Boots Fit for a Queen

Marie Antoinette is famous for her supposed decadence. Before she was subjected to the guillotine on October 16, 1793 (9 months after her husband, King Louis XVI of France), she was accused of being frivolous, lavish, and immoral. While she was no angel, much of the disparaging stories written about her are untrue. For example, she never said, “Let them eat cake.” What she … Read More Combat Boots Fit for a Queen

On the Fringes

When I was around eight years old, my parents bought me a little girl-sized fringed suede bag. It was a rich hue of butterscotch, and I could wear it across my body. I loved that bag. Where I went, it went. I wore it so much that one of my friends–a girl named Ginger–harassed me at school each day, begging me to give it … Read More On the Fringes

Currently enjoying a sartorial spotlight, boots channeling the Wild West are all the rage. Clad in everything BUT plain black leather (these aren’t your daddy’s cowboy boots), they are turning up in faux snakeskin, sparkling silver glitter, fringed suede, embellished metal toes and studs, and more, they pair effortlessly with flowing skirts, frou-frou maxi dresses, tailored suits and even jumpsuits. Personally, I have always … Read More Cowboy Cool
