Holiday Gifts #1

  My Favorite Things 2022 "Christmas is the season of joy, of gift giving, and families united."  - Norman Vincent Peale Today is a sunny and bright cold day after a week of snowfall, which by the way, is stunning.  The cold wintery days are here.  With the holiday season, I thought about the items I have loved over 2022.  It has been a year of reawakening for many and I for one am thrilled to see the events and life I enjoyed is back in full jingle bells swing.  Holiday shopping can be daunting especially when spending is not top of mind in a tough economy.  Thus, be thoughtful while picking up a gift of two.  One of my dear friends, often states if she purchases something, then she must get rid of a piece similar.  After all, we do not need that much in to live.  Also, be grateful for what you currently own.   I think back to my youth and college days.  We all had very little, shared clothes for dances, sewed our own clothes', painted our nails and counted our pennies.

When someone is negative, always remember they are projecting. These are often people who perhaps are not doing anything of meaningful substance. If you are creating or building som

Grey Blazer

  Elegant & Stylish "The blazer is the single most important piece in my wardrobe." - Tom Ford, American Fashion Designer   In the fashion industry, there is nothing more classic than a beautiful, fitted blazer which enhances a silhouette.  Combine with a turtleneck, blouse, matching pants, boots, or pumps for a centerstage moment.  Some of my favorite brands include L Agence and Veronica Beard .   Both of these brands have captured the form defining and chic vibe of a timeless blazer.  Conversely, I have read that oversized blazers and extremely baggy pants are back in vogue. Check out the online tabloids and notice the thin celebrity models draped in oversized blazers with billowing pants and tennis shoes.  Though I must mention that Gigi Hadid recently, did sport a vibrant cobalt blue velvet pantsuit with pumps that was stunning. I thought the jacket was a bit on the longish side though she still rocked the look. Bottom line, many of the billowing ensembles are trends
