White Sneakers & More - Weekly Fashion Picks

My Fav's For Friday, February 22, 2019 I believe it is time to wish for spring and summer after another snowy and bitterly cold week here in the Northwest.   Here are just a few items to uplift the spirit and think of end of winter.    Frye - White Leather Sneaker My Treasure and Bond white sneakers bought two years ago are scuffed and showing a bit of wear.  I wear them everywhere and love them.   However, time to locate for another spiffy white sneaker.  I can only wear sneakers made out of leather as I am allergic to other materials.  Luckily, I found a leather sneaker that will be a great replacement.  Pair with jeans, shorts and evoke and image of Audrey Hepburn.  The impeccable weekend foot attire or for everyday during the warm months to come.

Veronica Swanson Beard & Veronica Miele Beard  Have you heard of the ready-to-wear fashion brand Veronica Beard ?  If not, you are about too.  Veronica Beard is named after two sister-in-laws married to brothers who love fashion.  They developed a line of clothing that is feminine, tailored and meant for women's daily activities whether off to a high powered job, meeting girlfriends for lunch or racing off to an event.  The apparel takes minutes to assemble and sophisticated outfit.  The line originally began in 2010 with the launch of the Dickey Jacket.  The Dickey Jacket is the cornerstone of your wardrobe, according to the Beards.  You can zip in pieces for a different look or treat as a normal jacket.  The Dickey Jacket is what I noticed first in-store more for the cut and style versus the idea of zippin

Books - Powerful Inspiration

Live, Light, Love - Enlighten Me Please! This post contains affiliate links. I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links. Reading fills the soul, the mind and educates more than any other art form.  Opening a new book is similar to charting an unknown course across the open sea.   There isn't a day in my life that does not involve reading a book whether for pleasure, curiosity, for a book club, to learn something new or to help understand myself or others along this journey called life.  My latest is called The Gown by Jennifer Robson.  The novel is set in London after WWII and in present day Toronto, Canada.   The story is about those that created, designed and embroidered Queen Elizabeth's II, wedding gown during the aftermath of WWII in 1947. Life was bleak, little food, destruction, poverty abound yet two women from different backgrounds forged a friendship that lasted and was never forgotten.   Which brings me full circ

Jeans - My Ultimate Favorite

The Daily & Weekend Favorite This post contains affiliate links. I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links. Jeans are a constant staple in every fashionista's closet.  In our fast pace lifestyle, jeans are a must and will be worn over and over again.  Additionally, put away athletic wear unless going to the gym.  This style is on the way out and is never appealing.  Dr. Oz on The Today Show recently stated that wearing athletic wear all day gives one the idea that they are slimmer.  However, after several washes, these numbers stretch out almost an inch!  If you want to be stylish day and night sport a high quality denim in black, grey and dark blue.   The skinny jean is universally fabulous on women when combined with sweaters, coats, jackets, long blouses, boots, flats and pumps.   There are many brands to chose from when seeking a perfect fit.  The department stores are overwhelming with styles, hues and industry name bra
