White Tee-Shirt - Rag & Bone



The Classic Cotton 





"I always thought the tee shirt was the alpha and the omega of the fashion alphabet." Giorgio Armani


Lights, Camara & Action


Over the weekend, I succumbed to a nasty summer cold.  Of course, no one ever wants to be sick but when you are the world just seems to stop even when it is gorgeous outside.  First of all, I want to mention this was only a cold so in the scope of being ill it is minor.  To those of who are really suffering you have my utmost sympathy, hugs and love.  My dad always said, "If you have your health, you have everything."  Wise words indeed.  Cherish your body and maintain your health.  Also, don't touch anything.  Keep your hands washed and do not touch your face. 

Anyway, while laying on the couch bundled up, I turned on The Housewives of Beverly Hills, Season 9, Bravo.  I haven't watched in several years but was quickly entranced between my coughing and sneezing.  The stories were similar to previous years with feisty drama, opulent lifestyles and several new cast members.  This season is mainly about the Lucy Goosey Apple Juicy adoption dog saga between Dorit and Lisa Vanderpump (LVP).  A nasty story about the two of them over the dog was released on Radar Online though no one knows officially who leaked the story.  All eyes on deck pointed to the infamous LVP yet the proof is in the pudding.   Of course, there always needs to be a catalyst to bring the real issues of this zany group of women's challenges to the forefront.  To make matters more decadent there is a vicious fight between Kyle and Lisa V, hurtful words between Dorit and Lisa V, two beautiful marriage ceremonies for Denise and Camille and their new spouses, Erika concert, Boy George concert, trips including the latest rage Glamping, Hawaii, Bahamas, workout sessions and other stories with Lisa R and Teddy weaved throughout. Hats off to the husbands on the show who sit back and try to make sense of all women's drama.  Men just don't act this way so it is laughable to watch their reactions.  All and all, great fun and entertainment.   And, perhaps a bit of therapy since women have always fought with one another since the beginning of time.   It is how you resolve issues that truly matter!  You can't help yourself and smile a bit as you watch plus laugh at their antics. Do you throw away a long term relationship over a dog story? Or is something much deeper bothering you?  Can you look at yourself and realize your own culpability?  If you want to be liked, admired, loved, respected and revered, one never blames others, and has the wherewithal to examine their own faults and knows how to apologize.  It takes two to tango.  Of course, sometimes, it is time to move on from friendships but most often not. 

Many women do not want to face their own responsibility in creating drama.   They want to blame others because it is an easier and a less painful path.  Having to examine your own words and actions is much harder.  And, yet if you do, your relationships will be stronger and better.  One can only hope that all of these ladies really enjoy each other off the set.   I believe they do.   It is television after all and nothing more. 


I digressed, back to fashion, please.   


Okay, all the HWBH fashionistas, wear classic cotton white tee-shirts with absolutely everything.  A simple tee shirt combined with jeans and a sweater thrown over the shoulders is elegant and perfection.  Or add a jacket over it for a more sophisticated look.   Another one of my favorite, tee shirt brands is Rag & Bone.  Remember you want to purchase quality cotton tee shirts that have lasting power.  You do not want to have to throw them out after a year.    Rag & Bone fits the bill.  They are also cut slim and can be easily tucked in.  Fit is true to size. 


What are you waiting for? Click away girlfriends!

Books to Read - February 2021

  Read, Read, Read "We read to know we are not alone." C.S. Lewis Do you love to read? I do.  In fact, I always have a book on deck for my pleasure.  I wake up in the morning and carry my favorite novel downstairs.  It is how I start and end my day.  I am always reading.  It is my quintessential past time.  What do I like about the novels I chose?   I enjoy historical fiction with tales about the human condition.  Or I love stories told in a new place that I have never visited. Afterwards, I want to travel there and sink into the surroundings.  If I enjoy an author, I will read ALL  his or her books.  I tend to read books where the woman is the lead character.   I enjoy the strife, angst, and messiness of the characters' lives and how they prevail with strength, wisdom and love.  The struggle reminds me of the complexity of life and the beauty all in one snapshot.   Additionally, authors who share human drama, vivid details of the landscape and scenery plus poured their h

Happy Valentines Day 2021

  Love is in the Air!!!  Or is it Snow? "Where there is love there is life." Mahatma Gandi What Does Valentine's Day Mean to You?  It is snowing hard here in the Pacific Northwest.  We have eight inches, and it is still swirling down and covering everything.  The beauty of snow changing the landscape is a sight to behold.  Ever since I was a child, I have loved the snow.  We used to play endlessly in the streets building snowmen, having snowball fights, making snow angels, sledding and creating igloos. We did not go inside until we were cold, wet, and hungry.  We were always in the elements playing with friends or family members. The days of being a child without a care in the world are indeed cherished.  Today, I love the sound of kids playing in the snow.  It is wonderous.   Of course, Valentines Day 2021 for me is a winter wonderland.  Hopefully, we will continue to have power.  It remains to be seen.  Mother nature moves at its own pace and can never be accurately pr

Perfume Spritz - My Favorite Things

  Beauty in a Bottle "Perfume heralds a woman's arrival and prolongs her departure." Beauty is hard to describe.  The very essence of what is beautiful varies from person to person, culture to culture and land to land.  Perfume is similar to the idea of beauty. It is subjective.  Perfume is a mystery, and its elixir is a marvel. The scent becomes its own magic.  It is the lingering scent that creates a moment or recreates a memory of a person.  Whether it is spice, floral or warm notes of lavender or vanilla, a scent can bring immense comfort and pleasure.  What does stand the test of time is a signature perfume.  Perfume was created in 1340 for the Queen of Hungary.  Thus, the story of fragrances commenced.  Perfume remains at the top of everyone's list of "feeling good."  Additionally, perfume sales in 2020 were close to $34B.   We all have experienced being around someone who smells divine.  The scent is memorable and hard to capture in a bottle. Even in

Winter Fashion 2021

  The Chilly Artic "Good clothing is a passport to happiness." Yves Saint Laurent Yves St. Laurent Fashion Exhibit - Seattle Art Museum (2016) The winter of 2021 has been brutally cold across the country.  One for the ages. With snowstorms, bitter winds and ice, the frigid temperatures have seeped into everyone's bones.  Even places slated to be warm in February tend to be on the cooler side of the temperature gage.  Though, I must note that temps are slowly getting warmer in the sun infused states.  Beyond the weather, nerves remain flared as people struggle to get the vaccine, keep safe and bundled up all in one sweep.  The stress is at an all-time high.  It seems to me; we need to sit back and figure out how to be helpful to one another.  To be positive and appreciative for family and friends during these trying moments. We are closer to having everyone vaccinated and getting back to a semi-normal life.  In the meantime, we must be patient and diligent awhile longer.
