My, how time flies when you’re having fun.  It doesn’t seem like it was all that long ago that I was posting about Spring fashion or Summer sandals.  Now, the temperatures are dropping and Fall is just around the corner.  Sad to say, but it’s time to pack away those lovely, open toe sandals and […]

Before there was Anna Wintour or Glenda Bailey there was Diana Vreeland (and if you claim to know fashion, but aren’t familiar with Diana Vreeland, I don’t know what to say), the legendary fashion editor that served stints at both Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue.  She later served as a consultant to the Costume Institute at […]

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 […]

Full_Skirts_Fall2014

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
