The Little Black Dress - Must Have!


 Classic LBD

The "Must Have" Dress in the Wardrobe



Audrey Hepburn - Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961)


In a quandary about what to wear out to a swanky dinner, soiree or for New Years Eve?  The answer is very simple - drum roll please.....The Little Black Dress officially known as the LBD.  The LBD was introduced by designer Coco Chanel and became made a staple in every ladies closet with Audrey Hepburn in the movie Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961) donning a Givenchy LBD.  Today, the LBD is a must have in every fashionistas wardrobe.  Even this fashionista is opting for a lovely LBD versus the previous red number sited in the last blog.  Why? Well, perhaps a bit too many holiday festivities this season.  The LBD is perfection on any woman divine silhouette after a month of having so much fun!

For the first time, in my life, I will not be going in-store for the sale.  I am positive many like me will do the same.

We usually see other friends and spread the word on what is hot.  No doubt, the year 2020 will be one for the history books.  
If someone had told me in 2019, that everything I love in life would be halted because of a pandemic in 2020, I would have thought not possible.  As we all know, when the virus appeared, every…

"A grateful heart is a magnet for miracles"
Each day is a gift and being grateful for your life, your home, your friends and family is enough.  I find writing everyday about what I am grateful for in 2020 provides contentment and peace.   The Five Minute Journal as mentioned in previous posts, is a must-have for all of us living through the year 2020.  It is a wonderful way to start and end your day.  Millions of successful people take the time to remind themselves of their blessings.  Of course, shopping for yourself, within a budget, can create brightness to any day.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - Take Three - Jeans & Tops

The Perfect Combination


Since we no longer are attending events that we enjoyed in 2019, our needs for formal wear is not a priority this year.  However, I do believe in dressing up daily with a flattering top or a bit of color for a lift of hope and cheer.  What I have found refreshing as of late, is the ability to visit restaurants and eat outdoors.  Everyone seems upbeat, happy and joyous to be participating in the simpler thrills of life.  The women have taken time to look lovely and are sporting pretty clothes.  After all, our beautiful pieces are just waiting to be worn.  
Additionally, the new norm for most is working from the home, which is a significant change for everyone. Thus, a great pair of jeans and a beautiful top will look and make you feel professional.  It is important to dress for success even if you are in your office or at the kitchen table.  Fix your hair, put on your makeup, and add accessories.  Why not look your best?  You are a powerful woman.  Anyone in busin…
