Combat Boot Craze





Hello Tough Girl!

“Sock sneakers and sock boots are being replaced by combat boots. Popping up in our top searches we are seeing styles in black leather with chunky soles and a cool-girl detail. Leading brands for the combat boot are Prada and Valentino.” — Alison Stiefel, the VP of Marketing of ShopStyle



Hold the horses, stop the presses and put away your sneakers of yesteryear! The hottest fashion trend on the planet right now is the Combat Boot craze that has swept the land in the last few years and once again in 2019.    Many of my friends have paired skinny jeans, tailored jackets and or chunky sweaters with a dashing pair of footwear.   The look is definitely fun and on trend with embellishments of studs or silver baubles.   The resilient girl boot vibe stems from Charlize Theron outfit in film Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) which set fashion houses scrambling to showcase the movement.    My goal is to always choose classic apparel that remains relevant year after year though in this instance I am definitely foot stomping intrigued.  Is it possible to obtain a rugged pair that will have a lasting effect?  I do believe so.  So, let's jump on board the train and get shopping. 



Less Can Be Best

Lug Sole: a thick rubber sole that has deep indentations in a pattern designed to provide good footing and is used on sport and work shoes

Vibram Sole:  name of the Italian company.  The soles orginally designed to grip and have threads that can be safely used on many surfaces.

What I Love This Week - Ray-Ban Sunglasses




My well-loved polarized Ray-Bans are scratched from constant wearing and setting them down.  Apparently, I should have put them in their case more than I did.  One day while driving, I noticed that the scratches on the lens were bothering me.  Upon a recent trip to my favorite store, I spotted a new pair of shades. 
I tried them on and the rest is history.   I love these retro sunglasses.  They fit perfectly and have the polarization that is a must.  Why?  A glass surface is horizontal, the light reflects horizontally.   With polarized sunglasses, the surface filters out the horizontal light waves and protects from harmful UV rays.
For example, wear a pair of sunglasses without polarization and investigate a river or lake.  You will not see the fish swimming clearly.  With polarized sunglasses you can see the fish with an eagle eye.  Thus, my fascination with wearing only polarized lenses. 
By the way, I wear sunglasses year-round protecting from…

What I Love This Week - Perfume - Scents, seductive, fresh and oh so beautiful



Lancome's Le Vie est Belle Eau De Parfum (Life is Beautiful) is lovely and unforgettable.  Have you ever worn a perfume that receives lots of comments?  I personally love this scent.  And, yes others do comment.  
The name of the perfume constantly reminds me that life is indeed beautiful.  Life is a gift.  It is to be cherished and and should be enjoyed.  Don't let Negative Nelly'sAngry Annie's or Righteous Rita's ruin your day. Avoid those that do not lift your spirits or make you smile.  Seek out laughter with others either online or in-person. 
Spritz on your favorite perfume.  Put on something pretty and start the day with the knowledge that your life choices and decisions matter.  You are special.   
Lancome's Le Vie est Belle Eau De Parfum  has floral notes of sambac, jasmine and Tunisian orange blossom. This perfume is for the woman who lives in the present and loves her life. …

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 …
