The color red is earthshaking for a special occasion or perhaps this New Years Eve!  Take a classic red frock and combine with nude, gold or even red pumps, glittering accessories and cause a ripple of envy at any soiree. Finish with ravishing red lip for instant va va voom.  Of course, be ready to speak about anything, walk with a head held high remembering grace, manners and kindness reign supreme.




"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone." 

Audrey Hepburn (1929 - 1993) - Actress, Humanitarian

Pink Obsession

Pretty in Pink 2019 Are you obsessed with the hue pink?  In 2018 and now in 2019, I am enthralled with the color pink.  My list extends from from pink flats, pink jackets, pink tops and rosy pink lipsticks though I am still fixated on red.  The message this Spring is to cloak yourself in a beautiful shade of pink.  The actual hue of pink conjures success, nice, romantic, approachable, feminine, bubble gum, cotton candy and a love for self and others.  Do you have your pink on?  Here are few favorites to set the stage for Spring 2019.  Strike a Pink Pose A pink coat is flattering and pretty all at once on the owner.   Here are a few that fit the bill.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021

  First Glance Patience & Manners Please It is that time of year once again for the  Nordstrom Anniversary Sale .   Currently, you can preview the upcoming sale online.  This allows you to create a  "Wish List."   If you have a Nordstrom card, you can shop early.  For instance, Icon status begins on Monday, July 12th.  Check online for your start date.  The Nordstrom sale will open fully to everyone on Wednesday, July 28th .    Zen Master "Some people forget that kindness and manners are free."   A couple of comments before we discuss on what will sell out quickly.   Since the country is opening up after a year and half of shutdowns due to Covid 19 pandemic , it is imperative that you access your skills at being patient.  Lately, I have noticed that many are impatient in their cars, public transportation (ferries for me), and in public places where businesses and restaurants are struggling to serve and be open.  The rude behaviors and lack of manners has been

Yellow Mania Continues 2018

Yearly Yellow with a Happiness Vibe The happy hues of yellow in apparel remain vibrant and strong in 2018. Last year, you may recall my article on Yellow Apparel Spring 2017 published on April 5, 2017.   And, once again, I seem riveted on these naturally sunny tones that are spontaneous, signify warmth and most eagerly anticipated.

While, we are perusing our closets, online stores etc., we
