Jon Hamm, Viola Davis, Peter Dicklage




Game of Thrones (HBO)


The 67th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards list of winners accurately assessed the viewership fervor for the best theater in town!  Of course, Game of Thrones grabbed the Outstanding Best Drama for 2015, which was by far the most emotional, complex and moving show of the year.   The "walk of shame" scene was utterly gut wrenching and riveting.   And finally, Peter Dinklage won Outstanding Best Supporting Actor for his role as Tyrion.  Who can forget the infamous scene, "I did not do it!" in the previous season of Game of Thrones?   For Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama series, Jon Hamm also assuredly won for the stellar performance as the dashing and dysfunctional Don Draper entrancing audiences for seven years until the curtail call in 2015.  Mad Men is the iconic series of the decade - brilliant, savvy, transfixing and completely unforgettable. The fashion is refreshingly compelling and pushing a resurgence for dressing with style.  The hilarious HBO show Veep is so presidential winning the vote for Outstanding Comedy Series.  Don't forget the ladies taking the spotlight with Viola Davis for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama in How to Commit Murder and Julia Louis Dreyfus, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy for Veep.  And the list of winners goes on and on. Congratulations to all!  The "Telly" is the place to see the latest and greatest in film.


As for The Red Carpet Fashion...... 


The Telly diva's graced the red carpet at the Microsoft Theater, Los Angeles, in resplendent shades of hues and glitter under unbearable 100 degree heat.  The sizzling heat waves created dripping and shiny attire festooned on the ladies and gentlemen.  The fashion mavens donned in black stood out along with vibrant pink a few sparkles and white with black.

Forever Chic Style - The Frumpy Frog Queen

Heidi Klum


Klum donned a frightening yellow Atelier Versace feathery concoction which screamed notice me please! And, this number achieved the objective but for all the wrong reasons.  This diva, a star of Project Runway, seems to forget the importance of style on a red carpet.  On the other hand, when wanting attention, Klum went to the end of the fabric roll and garnered the Frumpy Frog Queen for the evening.








 Wise words from Coco Chanel.....

"Act your age! Dress for the occasion and never wear something different or frumpy especially when fit and lovely.  All it signifies is need for attention. Did Audrey, Grace or Sophia follow the "attention grabbing" path? NO! A sophisticated beauty and artist must shine with self confidence wearing the perfect outfit."

 

That's All!

Monday's Favorite Things - The Blazer

Classic is KeyL'Agence
Recently, I cleaned out my closet and donated seven bags of apparel.   The items ranged from high quality constructed blazers that I have owned over a decade along with other clothes that no longer fit.  It was difficult to let go of so many beautiful and well cherished pieces.  However, I know someone out there will love the blazers, skirts and suits that were donated.  They will be used rather than languishing in my closet and collecting dust. 
At the end of Finding Nemo (2003).   Nemo and his pals state, "Now What?"
When you are done purging the aftermath in a wardrobe can be unnerving.  You may find yourself in Nemo's predicament and think "Now What?""Where are my blazers for those occasions I need them?" Of course, over the last 8 months we have been primarily house bound and without need of fancy apparel.  For me, I have lived in shorts, tees, jeans, cashmere pullovers, tennis shoes and boots.  My lovely blazers were neve…

7 Ways to Become a Butterfly

Don't Crush the Butterfly!


"Despite everything, no one can dictate who you are to other people." - Prince




Butterfly's come in all shapes and sizes painted in dazzling and colorful hues.  The beauty and varied differences of the butterfly are astounding and beloved by the beholder.  There are approximately 20,000 species throughout the world dancing in the sun and air.   Yet, what does a butterfly mean to fashionistas? Well, for one all the people of the land can evolve into creative and wondrous butterflies.   It is through the journey of life that sometimes the environment, family, friends and peers willingly crush the beauty and charming essence of you  - the exotic butterfly.






Don't Destroy the Wings of Flight
There will always be the vengeful, the user, the hateful or a person filled with jealousy and envy that clips the wings of the butterfly.  Their insecurities reign supreme and a beautiful butterfly ready to spread its wings can sometimes be stunned with …

Jeans - Ripped, Baggy or Classic

Trendy or Modern Classic? Celebrate Being a Woman!
The Trends











The Classics











Something is in the air this Spring when it comes to jeans now more than ever.   The trendy rage of jeans with holes, rips and bagginess in dark and light denim is present far and wide across the land. Additionally, embellishments of glitter and flowers cemented on the fabric is rampant.  To top it off the "mom" jean from the '80's is making an ugly reappearance. The challenge with these trends is that the eye sees only the distractions rather than the entire ensemble or person.  Of course, the trends are fun, whimsical and youthful.  Yet, apparel draped on a silhouette is all about lines and proportions and when one element screams attention the overall look is lost and questioned.   In comparison, classic dark denim either in a skinny or straight leg jean creates clean lines and flatters from head to toe.   The dark denim blends in with the other hues and construction of the other pieces cre…

Monday's Favorite Things - The Bootie

What I love this Week?- Bootie by Aquatalia"A woman with good shoes is never ugly." Coco Chanel


Rain, cold, wind and breezy days has spread across the Pacific Northwest.  Thus, sweaters, jeans, wool coats, leather gloves, boots and booties are making a fast entrance to daily life.   It is an exciting time of the year when the world changes to the glorious colors of fall ending the days of sun and warmth.  We eagerly pull out beautiful fabrics and exquisite apparel slated for the cold fronts on the horizon. 
My favorite boot brand is Aquatalia.   I love their tall boots and booties for the rain infused months that lay ahead.   The company is based in San Francisco, California.  All the boots are crafted in Italy, with meticulous care towards Italian shoemaking.  The fit is superb and comfort exceptional right out of the box.  Additionally, Aquatalia is waterproof and stain resistant even in suede.   Now, I would not wear these beautiful numbers during a snowstorm or on a day wh…
