DVF Double-Breasted Coat & Mackage Wrap Coat - Coats and Encore

"Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove one accessory." - Coco Chanel

______

The Jacket & The Blouse



Veronica Beard - via C.


Not a fan of the jeans.   Do not invest in faded and ripped jeans if wanting to be a Forever Chic Style classics maven.  Instead chose skinny or straight leg dark denim that can be worn for years to come.  **Check in-store! Not online. 


"You can have anything you want in life if you dress for it." - Edith Head

Gorgeous, Classic Pointed Toe Beauties in Cabernet

"Anyone can get dressed up and glamorous, but it is how people dress in their days off that are the most intriguing." —Alexander Wang


______



The Bootie


Vince - Hallie Boot Limestone


Personally looking for a suede grey ankle boot. These are limestone but will search for grey and check out other colors. 

**Not online - check in-store. 



"Walk like you have three men walking behind you." —Oscar de la Renta


______


Everything Vince! 



Car Coat - Vince - Individualist


The Vince Wide-Leg Trousers are also spot on for fall.

Love #1 (Sarto by Franco Sarto) and possibly #4 (Louise Et Cie).  Choose a pointed toe versus round toe.  Will have to personally check out and get back to final decision. 



"Whoever said that money can't buy happiness, simply didn't know where to go shopping." —Bo Derek



______



The Classic Jean



Rag & Bone Skinny Jean

Skinny jeans with a mid to high waist remain center-stage this fall.   Of course, a straight leg is always classic and a must for a fashion doyenne's closet.  Wide legs and boyfriend jeans are also in fad but often do not flatter a fashionista. Stick to skinny or straight and always look for a dark wash for autumn and winter. 



"I wish I had invented blue jeans: the most spectacular, the most practical, the most relaxed and nonchalant. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity—all I hope for in my clothes. —Yves Saint Laurent



______


The Bra & Pajamas!

Look for Natori & PJ Salvage for Pajamas

 Natori bras and PJ Salvage pajamas are ideal for the fall and winter.

Home Fragrances - Stock Up

Antica Farmacista! Lavendar is Always Sublime! 







"Fashions fade, style is eternal." —Yves Saint Laurent

Pink Obsession

Flexible is a Choice

Spice of Life What does it take to being flexible on the road of life especially when change is at an all time high? Well, for many the simple task of walking will transform the body and mind thus ingraining a "flexible mindset".    Of course, put your phone away or keep on silent.  Allow yourself to hear your own thoughts and unleash your creative side or solve issues.   During the last year and a half, I have been walking with my husband and friends.  We have discovered new places, trails, wildlife, foliage, and forged friendships.  We have been accepting, evolving and creating new elements in our lives.  Along the journey, we have all strengthened our bodies and fueled our minds with conversation while admiring nature and embracing connection.  We became flexible with what we were able to do on a daily basis.    Throughout the Covid 19 pandemic, we have had an opportunity to get off the hamster wheel and adjust our lives accordingly.  For some, the adjustment was hard, and

Mom Jeans - Oh NO

  Just Say It Isn't So! "I wish I had invented blue jeans. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity- all I hope for in my clothes." Yves Saint Laurent "Mom Jeans"   are making a powerful comeback in 2021.  I remember women wearing "Mom Jeans" in the day and am stunned that women are slipping down this road again.  The term "Mom Jeans" originated in the in the late 1980's and early 1990's. They were worn by mom's and considered unhip by the youth.  A friend of mine recently asked, "What exactly are Mom Jeans?"   Typically, "Mom Jeans" are higher waisted than the high waist style, often in a light denim wash, creating a longer and flatter hind end.  There is extra fabric throughout and can emphasize a pouch if you have one. The fit is snug at the waist, sometimes with a waist band with a loose and unfitted leg.  Think of pajama pants only with extra fabric at the top.  The next requirement is to
