VERSUSWeekend Glamour


YOU DECIDE
Are you going out with friends for a special night?  Or having to present in front of a group or maybe you just want to appear polished?  Jeans are fantastic, versatile and comfortable yet do not always garner instant respect or come off as professional.   A pair of black ankle pants combined with a colorful blouse provides an instant tailored ensemble that is memorable.    I can hear some of you reading this, "It doesn't matter what I wear, it really doesn't. Seriously. I just want to look like everyone else"However, newsflash, what you wear, how you hold yourself, how you speak conveys who you are.  Are you self confident?  Do you respect others?  Do you respect the event?  Are you a leader?  Or are you a follower?  Do you just conform and copy everyone else?  Or do you follow the road less traveled?  Do you want to stand out or fade into the woodwork?   Do you dress your age?  There does come…

Lip Balms - Weekly Fashion Picks

Sunday, March 3, 2019



Christian Dior Lip Balm's are amazing.  Lip Color Reviving Lip Balm hydrates, soften, in many shades and reacts to the unique chemistry of your own lips.  Can be used over or under lipstick or just alone. I have been using for years. They now have an expanded line of decadent hues.  Additionally, I just found out about the next generation of lip balms that contain a pearly glow.  The Lip Glow to the Max Hydrationformula contains light-reflecting pearlescent pigments for a richer look.  Swipe over a red lip with the glowing balm and notice the subtle highlights that spring forth.    Both formulas contain mango butter to moisturize and protect throughout the day.   I am obsessed with both formulas. You will be too!

I Paid My Dues
Time after Time
I've done my sentence
But committed no crime
And bad mistakes
I've had made a few
I've had my share of sand kicked in my face
But I've come through
And I need to go on and on, and on, and on

White Sneakers & More - Weekly Fashion Picks

My Fav's For Friday, February 22, 2019





I believe it is time to wish for spring and summer after another snowy and bitterly cold week here in the Northwest.   Here are just a few items to uplift the spirit and think of end of winter.   


Frye - White Leather Sneaker My Treasure and Bond white sneakers bought two years ago are scuffed and showing a bit of wear.  I wear them everywhere and love them.   However, time to locate for another spiffy white sneaker.  I can only wear sneakers made out of leather as I am allergic to other materials.  Luckily, I found a leather sneaker that will be a great replacement.  Pair with jeans, shorts and evoke and image of Audrey Hepburn.  The impeccable weekend foot attire or for everyday during the warm months to come.





Frye - Comes in White and Black

Have you heard of the ready-to-wear fashion brand Veronica Beard?  If not, you are about too.  Veronica Beard is named after two sister-in-laws married to brothers who love fashion.  They developed a line of clothing that is feminine, tailored and meant for women's daily activities whether off to a high powered job, meeting girlfriends for lunch or racing off to an event.  The apparel takes minutes to assemble and sophisticated outfit.  The line originally began in 2010 with the launch of the Dickey Jacket.  The Dickey Jacket is the cornerstone of your wardrobe, according to the Beards.  You can zip in pieces for a different look or treat as a normal jacket.  The Dickey Jacket is what I noticed first in-store more for the cut and style versus the idea of zipping in fabric for a different…
