Red Alert - Apparel Fall 2017



Code Red







The color red is making a grand entrance in Fall 2017.  The fiery tone signifies love, passion and sometimes anger while conveying strength and confidence.  Red is the "it" hue that everyone needs to embrace for showstopping moments.  I, for one, love the color red and tend towards a blue red to match skin my tone.  If your skin has a pink undertone choose blue reds and if you have a yellow undertone then select orange reds.  The next step is to own a few pieces in this glorious hue and finish with a swipe of beautiful and bold lipstick.   Yes, fall is here and it is time to put away shorts, bathing suits, tee shirts and replenish the wardrobe with turtlenecks, slacks, boots and anything red.  Fall 2017 is Code Red. 



The Red Trench






The Trench Coat is an instant classic that is timeless and iconic.  Splurge on an eye catching trench coat in red with minimal details and wear year round.  The effect and notice from all will be overwhelming while others are sporting beige and black.  Bold and daring are the words for days to come.

"You know a woman means business when she puts on red lipstick" 



Step out this fall in magnificent tones of vibrant reds.   Grasp different shades either paired together or drape yourself in red from head to toe.  Fashion, color and makeup is returning full force in social media and print.  And, why not?  All the world is a stage and you are your own director in the greatest movie on earth.   So make everyday count, dress for success and inspire the world and yourself with intelligence, grace and a smile.  Leave the red anger and rage chip in a drawer where it belongs surrounded by yesterday and old news.   And, instead embrace the color red reminding everyone that your life is not a dress rehearsal but in fact an adventure to be lived in the present with dazzling aplomb.

Classic Coach for Fall

  Summer Ending "We cannot direct the wind. But we can adjust the sails." Aristotle Summer is winding down as the weather cools, leaves are turning into glorious hues and breathtaking flowers are slowly wilting.  You can feel the shift in the air. Embrace the pending change with anticipation for pumpkins, colors of red, gold and yellow, falling temperatures, spider webs and the end of summertime.  Once again, we long for cozy sweaters, boots, coats, scarves and apparel designated for a fall landscape.

"A Girls Best Friend"  Jewelry is equated to icing on a cake or a finale to a play or the ending of a scintillating novel. In other words, an outfit is just not complete without a dab of bling.   Whether wearing jeans, sporting work out gear, getting ready for work, an evening out or absolutely anything, a bauble of jewels is a necessity.  Or course, it is a juggling act because too many jewels makes one appear a bit desperate for attention.  You know the person, they walk into a room and everything from head to toe is sparkling and wiggling so that all is seen are the multitudes of  jewels rather than them.  The well dressed are always sporting minimal jewels.  Check out Golden Globes 75th - Fashion Highlights   for ideas from the red carpet.   The right amount is essential.
