Rainbow Fashion 2018




Somewhere Over the Rainbow








According to Punxsutawney Phil, we the nation have six more weeks of winter.  And, for us Northwesterners, February continues on as a wet and grey month.  Thus, one tends to seek out light filled places or jet away on a plane to the desert.  On the other hand, all the projects needed to be done are suddenly easily rendered since it is better to be indoors tackling the latest endeavor. Perhaps the rain, wind and elements spark the artist, the writer, the creator, the inventor the dreamer and the doer as outdoor time is indeed limited.  During these stormy though inventive prone days add a bright shade of yellow, red, green or blue for a smile.   Of course, don't be surprised to see lots of black, grey, white and brown with boots and a trench coat on local natives.   Yet, if one looks closely there just might be a rainbow pair of earrings or a hint of mustard yellow breaking up the monotony of pitter patter against the window panes.  All and all the weather will be brighter soon and dreams can come true.  The sun will come out and the days will lengthen.  In the meantime, here are a few over the rainbow choices for the wintry days to come.

Embrace the beauty around you.  Give your family, friends and animals love while noticing the small things that seem so simple.  Rainbows are everywhere either in the sky or right at home in front of you.  It is so easy to miss the colors of life and instead see only the grey's.  So, take a moment, step up and wear a spot of rainbow hue to add a smile to your life and others.  It really will make your day memorable.  And, while you are at it - pet your cat, call your mom, talk to your daughter and understand that these moments are really the rainbow of life.

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. Perhaps it is the time of the year with the dripping pools of water, rain, sleet, hail and yes snow that stimulates the mantra, "please let there be sun". Of course, if you are in Palm Desert, California or Scottsdale, Phoenix or a tropical climate yellow rays of sunshine are always forefront and center.  For the rest of us, we are ready to drink up a few bars of light.  And, if rays come forth for a  wee bit, we dance, run outside and have an extra kick in our step.  Yet, when the elements keep on pouring our way, it is time to bring out yellow in our apparel and accessories. While, we are perusing our closets, online stores etc., we
