The "Luxe" Flip Flop


Apr29

Anais Mali for Vogue Japan June 2016 by Giampaolo Sgura


Apr25

Though the days are heating up, and visions of breezy pieces abound, I couldn't resist this editorial. The beautiful Anais Mali is a sight to behold in glamorous pieces akin only to those donned by the likes of Diana Ross as they strode through the doors of Studio 54 in the Glorious 70's.

Crochet-panel Poncho (also in white), $29; nyandcompany.com
I love the crochet detail on this as well as the tassels. It's a nice piece for spring days or evenings.</p> <p>

Fringe-trim Lace Poncho (beige and white), $29; nyandcompany.com</p> <p>I also like this one.

Trina Turk Fantasy Flavor Snap Leather Double Bracelet, $98 (on sale for $34.30); dillards.com.
Belk also has them in this color, and orange.</p> <p>It looks good worn alone, or with a watch. I prefer the latter.

One of spring's best collaborations is that of Reed Krakoff (formerly of Coach) and Kohl's. Due to hit stores on April 21st, I'm sure the racks will be picked clean!

Fossil "Chubby Monster" bag Charm, $48; belk.com</p> <p>I recall doing a post on bag charms around December or so, which included this particular item. I'd run across, and purchased a couple or three since that time of the furry variety, but it was nice to find this one and that below, in T.J. Maxx. I love the fact that they're leather, and colorful. they'll definitely get plenty of wear!

All In One Place

What's better than perusing the pages of a catalog which showcases the latest and greatest looks. Saks Fifth Avenue has one of the best, when it comes to contemporary and designer looks.

FINALLY!!


Apr08

Yes Finally! I've literally stalked this bag for the past year or more! A time or two it popped up at T.J. Maxx, but both were leopard. I wanted a nice pretty color, that I could would wear all year. Macy's recently added this color and yellow, which I would have paid full price for if I couldn't  have found it elsewhere. I just happened to check online today, and there it was....ripe for the picking! I ended up getting it for $129.44 (including tax). Now I can relax....at least until the next obsession presents itself!

LAUREN Ralph Lauren Newbury Mini Double zip Satchel, $198 (raspberry rose). It's currently on sale for $147.99 (plus an additional 20% off until 4/13) at macys.com.

D.I.Y.


Apr06

I've been obsessed with patched jackets forever! I'd been awaiting just the right one, but that never happened. Well, I take that back, there were some that I truly loved, but they were on the high end of things. After much looking, I decided to create my own. I found the camouflage utility jacket at one of my local stores, and bought iron-on patches from a local crafts store. I'll add more as I find them. It's my project for the morning, as I plan to wear it this afternoon.

Style Icon: Iris Apfel

This eighty-six year old lady is the epitome of style. She wears big, bold jewelry and beautiful ornate clothing. So popular is she, that a book was written about her titled: THE IRREVERENT IRIS APFEL: RARE BIRD OF FASHION. The book contains clothing and jewelry that is absolutely breathtaking. I like the fact that she has and revels in her "individual style". She does not follow the "fashion path"....she has created her own.

Gracious Beauty Audrey Hepburn

I think that she will always be remembered most for her role in Breakfast At Tiffany's, but from what I have read about her, she was a beautiful person inside and out. Here is a quote that was spoken by her that I think sums up the type of person that she was...."never let yourself grow up believing that anybody if different from anybody else.....love each other and do what you can for your neighbor".

"Lady Day"

Billie Holiday gave new meaning to singing a song.

Daphne Giunness

Another "lady of style"

Diana Ross

As she appeared in the movie "mohogany"

Butterfly dress

Prada

"A trunk full of treasures"

Dolce and Gabbana "Face" wedge platforms
