The Joy of High Tea

The Joy of High Tea

Hello darlings, sipping a delicious cup of hot tea by the fire side on these cold days with rain or snow falling is so delightful. My love of having high tea (meaning served with tiny tea sandwiches, bite size lemon tarts, petite fours and scones with crème and jam) started as a child, but became a [...]

Fall Fashion Changes and Lipstick

Fall Fashion Changes and Lipstick

Hello, darlings! Isn’t this change of weather delightful?  Along with the chilly weather, our Fall clothes are now the fashion focus, as are new shades of makeup.  Remember the brown lipstick trend years ago? Well, it is back!  Brown shades are the hottest trend for Fall.  Actually, I am very pleased with the return of the brown hue, since shades [...]

Kardashian Lips

Kardashian Lips

Hello darlings, I have often wondered what cosmetics Kim Kardashian uses to get the subtle but beautiful look for her lips. Honestly, this is about the only thing I like about her sense of fashion; she is usually too far over the top to be truly a fashion icon. Her lips, however, I do like, so I’ve researched the [...]

Office Attire Tips

Office Attire Tips

Hello, darlings. If you have just graduated from school and  have a new office job, here are some suggestions for perfect office attire.  Believe me, this is important and can make or break keeping the job or advancing.  Clothes are the first image of what a person represents.  So, let’s start with a hem length skirt or [...]

A Trend to Avoid

A Trend to Avoid

Darlings, I must share an opinion with you; the gladiator type shoes that cover part of the ankle are the least flattering shoes to the female leg. This style shortens the length of the leg, resulting in a stocky appearance instead of a sleek feminine look .  Oh, yes, I have fallen prey to the [...]

The Bare Look

The Bare Look

Darlings, Selma Gomez is featured in a Vogue photo wearing a dress that I would get down on my knees and beg the designer to give me in the same design, add or take nothing away!  The object of my madness is a latte-tone leather, lusciously colored and designed, featured with an oversized buckle and rushing [...]

Red Fall Fashion and a New Trend

Red Fall Fashion and a New Trend

Hello darlings, how many of you have golden blonde hair and have to constantly worry about your eyebrows matching the tresses?  Worry no more!  Dark eyebrows are the hot new fashionista model trend.  It is now an instant style leader, to be “in the know,” with a blonde halo and dark brows.  Remember Madonna, years ago with [...]

The Summer Wedding Season

The Summer Wedding Season

Hello darlings, summer is a favorite time for weddings and has been for centuries.  Much to my amazement, this time of the year was chosen in the past when people only bathed twice a year – the first time being in the month of May.  It was thought the bath was still fresh and the flowers were [...]

Hermes Birkin Bag Exceptional Collection

Hermes Birkin Bag Exceptional Collection

Well, darlings, not much in the fashion world surprises me, but the Hermes Birkin Bag Exceptional Collection that sold for $203,150 did my make my jaw drop.  In fact I had to sit down and catch my breath as my head was swirling with disbelief. I knew the prized Hermes bags sold for an average price of $36,000, but [...]

Memorial Day and the Fashion Influence of WWII

Memorial Day and the Fashion Influence of WWII

Memorial Day is certainly a special time to remember our military veterans. A time of gratitude, pride, sadness, and nostalgia.  As a child my father and his brothers, with the exception of one, were serving in World War II.  There was great stress in our home; my mother and I lived with my grandparents while my [...]

Metropolitan Museum Gala and Cannes Film Festival Fashion

Metropolitan Museum Gala and Cannes Film Festival Fashion

Hello darlings, after viewing fashion photos from the Metropolitan Museum Gala, I must say Amal Clooney is the best dressed. Amal’s red strapless gown was elegant and perfect for her body type. The vibrant red complimented her complexion and long dark hair. Now, forgive me, but I was actually embarrassed for the choice of gown Kim Kardashian [...]

The Dallas Mad Hatters’ Event

The Dallas Mad Hatters’ Event

Darlings, each year my readers ask when an article for the Mad Hatters’ Event for the Women’s Council  of the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden will be in my column.  Well, it is that time again!  This year more of the event is presented, the table settings, the menu, winner of the BEST of SHOW [...]

Easy Tricks to Solve A Makeup Emergency

Easy Tricks to Solve A Makeup Emergency

Darlings, I know the frustration of running out of a certain makeup, leaving it at the gym, having a teen daughter borrowing it and running out the door with out remembering to leave a message, or simply having it fall out of one’s bag. Having had all the above happen, I have discovered how to [...]

Trimming Down for Spring

Trimming Down for Spring

Darlings, as the buds are coming out on the trees it is time to step out of our winter nest and begin to bloom with a toned, slimmer body. Oh, I know how this winter has required lots of comfort food as we were snuggled in against the ice and snow.  It’s time to replace [...]

Darlings, while shopping for the new spring fashions do not forget the little girls that have captured your heart. Famous designers have added trends for infants, toddlers, and ”tween teens.” The Boho and Little House on the Prairie is the mini-fashiionista delight.  Picture the adorable little angel in lace dresses, as Suri, the daughter of Katie [...]
