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.

Lancome Perfume


If you want to be stopped every time you spritz on perfume - look no more.  On a whim several months ago, I purchased La Vie est Belle Eau de Parfum (Life is Beautiful). The scent is heavenly. Pulled from the Nordstrom site:  Floral notes of sambac, jasmine and Tunisian orange blossome are added in the form of sublime absolutes.  Free, happy and addictive.   There are over 1.3K reviewers on Nordstrom site that give this luxurious perfume 5 stars.  Heads will turn.

Hand Lotion


A superior hand lotion is a must during this time of year.  The endless cracking and dryness seems to wreak havoc on our beautiful hands. A must during this time of year.  Kiehl's fits the bill.

That is it for now!  Have a wonderful weekend.

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 …

Audrey Hepburn - Women Who Inspire

Audrey Hepburn (1929-1993)Kindness


"Pick the day. Enjoy it- to the hilt.  The day as it comes. People as they come... The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present - and I don't want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future." 



"To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow." The ShiftIn our current upside-down apple pie world, many are struggling with the overload of information on the virus or election. The airwaves, print, social media, or any form of communication is constantly swirling at a high voltage.  The never-ending fables, unrest, destruction, statistics, changes our way of life and follows the path of what I call - The Shift.  A shift that we have no control over but can deal with as gracefully as possible. The Shift where everything we did for pleasure, work or play is on temporary hold or gone forever.  These shifts have happened throughout history.  Be patient. Be kind. It will pass and resolve. The chaos for some may lead to anger, …
