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.

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

Personally, I have always … Read More Cowboy Cool

Sunny Delights

I don’t know about you, but I love a great pair of sunglasses. This is an item that I am willing to splurge on because I know I will get a lot of wear out of them (provided I don’t lose them any time soon).  I believe that a good pair of sunglasses is well worth the investment because they can add so much … Read More Sunny Delights
