I'm taking a break for a day, but I still want to share a bit of love!
This is a wonderful Friday to pause for a minute, to appreciate the beauty and the abundance of our lives, and to tell our loved ones what they mean to us. I'll be back soon - I wouldn't want to miss the fun we share! love,...

Hope you are restored by your break. I live in the land of -40C (that's 40 below F) and despite brilliant sunshine outdoors, we get cabin fever when it is too cold to be outside enjoying winter sports. Tropical theme gatherings & FLOWERS work magic.

I added a few very feminine accessories to the "All-Black" wardrobe - come see how pretty they are!
After thinking long and hard about how I wanted to accessorize the "All-Black" wardrobe, I decided that I'm going to accessorize it in a variety of ways, and give everybody a choice of which they prefer! In this, as in virtua...

Wallowing in luxury for this travel capsule wardrobe!
Many of us are preparing for holiday trips of varying lengths, so today I felt like putting together something that just oozed luxury and subtlety.  These rich, beautiful colors, fabrics and textures make a quietly elegant st...

Some ideas for how to make a wardrobe decision - build a "scenario" around a possible purchase, and think about which (if any) of those schemes holds the most appeal.
I happen to know for a fact that one of you will buy this design scarf for yourself for the holidays, and that you are struggling to decide which color you want. I further know that your wardrobe is basically navy, so I thoug...

Taking beautiful jewelry out of the "special night" category and finding ways to wear it everyday!
It can happen to any of us - you wake up in the maturity of your life to find that you own a piece or two of really REAL jewelry - the kind of stuff that requires a special mention on your home owner's insurance. The kind of ...

They do! I get better photographs from the UK site, but Uniqlo does indeed have stores in the US. I've been in the one in New York, and they're opening one next year in Chicago...

Some of your were concerned about wearing camel with burgundy - so I swapped out the camel for navy. It's a beautiful travel capsule wardrobe now  - a perfect four pack for the holidays.
Yesterday, there were a couple of concerns/questions about what to do if you don't look good in camel. How about navy? (grey would also be fabulous, as would taupe...) Tee shirt – Lanvin, pants – Jaeger, snood/infinity sc...

I use the color theme from one scarf to suggest 12 outfits - one for each month of the year - and then show how well all of these items work together in a capsule wardrobe. If you love navy and green, this is for you!
I know I seem to talk about this same idea a lot, but I can't sufficiently emphasize the benefits of building your wardrobe around a unifying theme of some sort. Your theme could be a particular color scheme, a painting, a ph...

identifying the gaps in my own wardrobe - some interesting discoveries!
My wardrobe is in kind of a mid-season funk right now. My arms are getting a little bit girthy from my workouts (hurrah!!!), and a few things that used to be wardrobe stalwarts are going to have to move on to someone else's w...

Two really interesting and attractive outfits, in green!
I rarely see anybody wearing green, and I almost NEVER see a mixture of shades of green in one outfit, so it was truly a red letter (or a green letter, I suppose) day when I saw both of these women. Sometimes it's certain tha...
