Petite Slider

By now I’m sure we all know that clothes almost never come ready to wear straight off the hanger.  This is especially true if you’re not a traditional size (i.e. tall, petite, plus size).  As a petite woman I’ve endured all the trials and tribulations of taking just about every pair of pants I own […]

On Our Radar: The ..


One item that’s on trend for Fall – the Full Skirt.  Now, I’m not a trend follower, per se, but I’m all for trends that work for my personal style and taste.  The great thing about full skirts is that they work well for pretty much every body type, especially for women who happen to […]

Boutique Focus: Cl..


About a week ago I had a chance to visit ClosetNV, a luxury consignment boutique located in West Bloomfield, MI.  ClosetNV was opened in February 2010 by sisters-in-law Robin Bloom and Lisa Rosenberg.  Both had been consigning luxury designer pieces for themselves and friends and family on E-bay since 1999.  Lisa then had the idea […]

Over the years I’ve picked up beauty routines that do and don’t work.  Without a doubt, these are the seven tips that I’ve found have stood the test of time for me and my skin: 1. Water: If you haven’t heard it once, you’ve probably heard it a million times, but that’s because it’s true […]

August 2014 Bookcl..


This month’s bookclub pick of the month is Fifth Avenue, 5AM by Sam Wasson.  It’s a behind the scene’s look at the making of Breakfast At Tiffany’s.  Audrey Hepburn is one of my all time favorite actresses and fashion icons.  Honestly, I don’t trust any woman who calls herself a fashionista but doesn’t like Audrey […]

Beauty Review: Ede..


I’m learning that the key to great looking natural hair is keeping it moisturized.  This is especially true for curly hair – the more hydrated your curls, the more defined they are.  Keeping natural hair moisturized in the summer heat, however, is easier said than done.  I personally had been having trouble keeping my hair […]

On Our Radar: Culo..


For some reason I don’t remember culottes being this chic.  As a matter of fact, when I was a kid I hated them – to me they just looked like pants’ ugly cousin.  Today’s culottes are a lot more stylish – longer, wider legs and not so stiff fabrics.  It’s either that or my tastes […]

Fashion Speak 2014..


Fashion Speak 2014 is all set for October 16, 2014.  I was beyond excited to hear that women’s wear designer and Detroit native Tracy Reese will be this year’s keynote speaker for the event.  Last year’s event was awesome and it’s looking like this year’s event might top it.  Tickets are available now.  You should […]
