"If you can't stop thinking about it - Buy it"


Here are several items that have sparked my interest for the glorious week of February 15, 2019.  Hopefully, you all had a wonderful Valentines Day with loved ones.  With the arctic weather freezing the country we do need a pick me up until sunshine and heat become the spring norm.    Thus, I think it is time to reward ourselves.   Don't forget you are your own best friend. Thus splurge, smile and shop.

Reading fills the soul, the mind and educates more than any other art form.  Opening a new book is similar to charting an unknown course across the open sea.   There isn't a day in my life that does not involve reading a book whether for pleasure, curiosity, for a book club, to learn something new or to help understand myself or others along this journey called life.  My latest is called The Gownby Jennifer Robson.  The novel is set in London after WWII and in present day Toronto, Canada.   The story is about those that created, designed and embroidered Queen Elizabeth's II, wedding gown during the aftermath of WWII in 1947. Life was bleak, little food, destruction, poverty abound yet two women from different backgrounds forged a friendship that lasted and was never forgotten.   Which brings me full circle in finding a couple of …

Jeans are a constant staple in every fashionista's closet.  In our fast pace lifestyle, jeans are a must and will be worn over and over again.  Additionally, put away athletic wear unless going to the gym.  This style is on the way out and is never appealing.  Dr. Oz on The Today Show recently stated that wearing athletic wear all day gives one the idea that they are slimmer.  However, after several washes, these numbers stretch out almost an inch!  If you want to be stylish day and night sport a high quality denim in black, grey and dark blue.   The skinny jean is universally fabulous on women when combined with sweaters, coats, jackets, long blouses, boots, flats and pumps.   There are many brands to chose from when seeking a perfect fit.  The department stores are overwhelming with styles, hues and industry name brands. The task can be da…

“Sock sneakers and sock boots are being replaced by combat boots. Popping up in our top searches we are seeing styles in black leather with chunky soles and a cool-girl detail. Leading brands for the combat boot are Prada and Valentino.” — Alison Stiefel, the VP of Marketing of ShopStyle

Hold the horses, stop the presses and put away your sneakers of yesteryear! The hottest fashion trend on the planet right now is the Combat Boot craze that has swept the land in the last few years and once again in 2019.    Many of my friends have paired skinny jeans, tailored jackets and or chunky sweaters with a dashing pair of footwear.   The look is definitely fun and on trend with embellishments of studs or silver baubles.   The resilient girl boot vibe stems from Charlize Theron outfit in film Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) which set fashion houses scrambling to showcase the m…

The 76th Golden Globesaffair was held on Sunday, January 6, 2017withSandra Oh and Adam Samberg taking center stage at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.    The actual show and even the fashion was a bit milky bland.   However, there were a few movies and television shows this year that were incredible, well acted, entertaining and overall major hits among the populace.  My two favorites films were A Star is Born with songstress Lady Gaga and director, actor Bradley Cooper plus Bohemian Rhapsody with Rami Malek.  I was thrilled when Rami won Best Actor and Bohemian Rhapsody took the nod for Best Drama film of 2019.  If you haven't seen these two films - get to the theater pronto. As for television series, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (Amazon Prime) achieves all …
