Black Pants & White Blouse - Zebra Style


The Classic Vibe








Tired of wearing jeans during the day or evening and need a fashion fix?  It seems jeans and active wear are worn for every occasion.   For the record, jeans are not always figure flattering unless in a dark denim hue with no embellishments.  And, yoga pants should only be worn for gym activities.  If striving for a refreshed look - think no more.  A simple combination of black pants and a white blouse could become the cornerstone of a wardrobe.   The ensemble shouts Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn fashion that never fades and never is out of style. This simple and minimal combination of black with white is showstopping perfection. 



The Black Pant









I. Minimalist:  The right pair of black pants can be worn today, tomorrow and for many years to come.  The skinny pant is top of mind this season.  And, of course the appeal of the trouser pant with the slight flair is timeless.

III.  White Accessory:  A white scarf adds a touch of brightness to any outfit.  French women do enjoy scarves wrapped around the neck bringing warmth and beauty to the face.  White means calmness, new beginnings and hope.

Jewelry - The Main Attraction








IV.  White Magic:  Pearls are essential with a classic ensemble.   Of course, real or costume pearls evoke a Jackie 'O image.   Furthermore, a splattering of other white jewels can sparkle against a white blouse.

V.  Sunglasses - A Must:  The final element is a pair of sunglasses that make an entrance.  Black shades are classic and mysterious, while other hues add drama.  Either way never leave home without a pair of stylish sunglasses.

This Spring 2017 step out in style with a pair of black pants, a white blouse, white jewelry and finish with a pair of decadent sunglasses along with boots, flats and or pumps.  The overall ensemble will brighten the day, make the wearer exceedingly happy and create an image of self confidence.  Seize the day and the moments left to come.  And, make everyday a joyous occasion.

Tee-Shirts - Rag & Bone

  Ultimate Comfort "The tans will fade but the memories will last forever."  Town & Country Summer is coming.   You can feel it especially now with the sunshine filling the land in the Pacific Northwest.  The mornings are crisp with afternoons that are warm with a slight breeze.  The blue skies combined with the yellow daffodils, pink magnolia blossoms, flowers appearing, green trees, snow covered mountains and endless green growth is magnificent.  The eye is endless entertained, and the balm of the sun soothes the weary after months of rain, sleet, hail, snow and cold.  Soon we will be storing our cashmere sweaters and pulling out simple tee-shirts, shorts, bathing suits, hats and sunscreen. Overall, it is a happy time especially this year now more than ever.  We can finally breathe a sigh of relief.   While we are embracing the long awaited change, I have found the perfect tee-shirt for the Summer months to come. Rag & Bone is the answer once again. The quality of t

Red Bathing Suits

  Lady in Red Elizabeth Taylor - Pixabay "When in doubt, wear red." Bill Blass Red is the color of passion, danger, anger and ultimately love.  It is a hue that stands out in a crowd, commands attention, and flatters the owner.  Think of fashionistas sporting a red dress in film or in the real world.  Heads turn, smiles happen, and the world stops for a moment.  Red is the color that truly makes an entrance.  Finding the correct red can be daunting.  If you have light, creamy skin with a pink cast, often a blue red is best.  If your skin is olive shade with a yellow undertone, then an orange red is your choice.  This handy chart by RITO designer knitwear can help identify your personal color of red.  Now the fun begins.  Once you have your color wheel done, you can then choose a delightful red hue from lipsticks, apparel and yes for a bathing suit.  The next mission is finding a red bathing suit, which often is difficult.  One would believe that a red bathing suit would be av

Rag & Bone Sweaters

  Winter Sale Pixabay - No Attribution Required We live for sales these days!  Do we not?  Getting a deal on well made, designed clothing with a percent off. What more can we ask for? Currently, there are fantastic price decreases on one of my favorite brands, Rag and Bone.  During the winter months, and even in early Spring and Fall, there is nothing better than a warm cashmere sweater to drape yourself in against the chill.   Of course, I must recommend purchasing a sweater in a classic shape that is timeless rather than on trend.  Classic or Trendy?  Which brings up a good point?  There are always new trends for us to partake each season.  For instance, flared jeans are making a strong comeback.  Whereas skinny jeans remain front and foremost.  A skinny, cigarette or straight leg jean can be worn for years rather than with a flared hem. Another trend hitting the airwaves are loose trouser pants, which in my fashion opinion are reminiscent of pajamas.  If you are going to buy pants,

Jeans for Spring 2021

  Vi br ant Hues Pixabay - No Attribution Required The sun is out, birds are singing, and Spring is here.  I spent the day in the yard cutting back plants, grasses, and ferns in preparation for the new, glorious, and riotous growth.   The bounty is always stunning with an array of colors.  Later in the Spring, I will fill my pots with hues that add to the décor of the backyard and deck.  Yes, Jeans Please? What does this have to do with jeans in rainbow tones?  Well, the world is filled with beauty.  You must look for it and when you do sigh with delight.  Recently, my favorite celebrity diva, Suzanne Somers, was wearing and rocking skinny orange jeans with black pumps on one of her weekly Facebook videos.  Which, of course, were stunning on her.  Orange jeans are the perfect signal that springtime has officially arrived.   Of course, she is in desert and it is a bit warmer.  However, our day in the heat, will soon be here in the Pacific Northwest.  Right now, is the moment, to pull o
