The Mix and Match

The Mix and Match

Kendall Jenner is following in her sisters footsteps; Kim, Kortney and Kloe Kardashian are certainly on the celebrity circuit.  Kendall has started out with a major icon of cosmetics, and Estee Lauder chose her as their new face for their expansive color collection.  Why was she chosen?  Estee Lauder has found her glowing skin, angular [...]

Pointed Toe Flats and Skinny Jeans

Pointed Toe Flats and Skinny Jeans

This spring and summer the pointed toe flats are making a big change from the round toe that has been in fashion for a few years. Flats styled in the pointed toe manner will compliment the legs more than the round toe, which makes the legs appear shorter.  I thought the round toe shoes were [...]

A Plethora of Fashion Choices!

A Plethora of Fashion Choices!

Hello darlings, so much is happening on the fashion front that one can hardly keep up with new looks!  Let’s start with the new shorter, cropped pant. To tell the truth, this is not a favorite of mine, as one must match the type of pant carefully with one’s body type.  The cropped pant can be [...]

Some New 2015 Trends

Some New 2015 Trends

Darlings, a new trend is here! This is one that I have long thought of and dared to wear a couple of times: mismatched earrings. Oh, how I have longed for not loosing a precious ear ring and having to cast the other aside, or trying to match a new one with a spare.  The [...]

The Wrap Belt

Darlings, although the chilly winter winds are still blowing, the spring 2015 fashion forecast is in full swing. Haute designers are defining the trends or “must haves” for fashionistas.  Alexander McQueen, among other fashion icons, is declaring the “Wrap Belt” to be in style. The belt is worn around the top of one’s hips and knotted [...]

A Special Christmas Table Display

Hello, darlings! Do you want to design a beautiful Christmas table and make it an extra special time at the feast?  I have discovered my family and friends love being seated with a beautiful present resting on their plate.  It’s such a festive touch and can be presented in a special box with some beautiful [...]

A Graceful Stride in Heels

A Graceful Stride in Heels

Well, my darlings, this is the season for parties, and with the parties come the cocktail dresses and stilettos.  Oh, those stilettos are so hard on the feet!  To walk gracefully in them does require special knowledge of foot work.  Evidently, we American girls have been leaning too much on our big toes. That’s right, [...]

Good Posture

Good Posture

Darlings, I must share with you the importance of correct posture for health reasons and fashion, because clothes, no mater the cost or designer, can’t look good without graceful carriage.  As simply as one wants to keep up with the best skin care, one should be constantly aware of the beauty of good posture. It [...]

Quick Holiday Fashion

Quick Holiday Fashion

  The scent of Thanksgiving turkey and all the trimmings will be filling the house with delicious scents and memories. It is such a special day with family and friends so, darlings, our attention is also directed to the age old female question of “what shall I wear?” Casual is usually the choice, but all [...]

Darling, just browsing through the cosmetics at Walgreens, not looking for any one special thing, I discovered a most remarkable treasure. The name of this amazing product is Nanoblur. When I first saw the product I picked up the package to find out more about it: it was designed to erase fine lines and smooth [...]

A New Fashion Icon

A New Fashion Icon

Darlings, it seems that a new fashion icon has arrived upon the scene, following the fairy tale wedding of Amal and George Clooney. Amal’s fashion choices are being reported with great detail and I absolutely love this! Her wedding gown, an elegant romantic vision in white lace and Cathedral veil was designed by Oscar de [...]

Fragrances from History

Fragrances from History

Hello, darlings! Doesn’t a touch of perfume add to one’s femininity? A lovely fragrance is always the last part of my dressing for the day or night. A woman should be aware of the power of perfume to enhance her identity, personality, and allure. Even my dogs know when I am ready for the day [...]

Boots, Boots, Boots

Boots, Boots, Boots

Darlings, it is time to bring out the boots! Boots just happen to be a great fashion favorite for me. All styles from the over-the-knee boot to the flat-heel riding boot are favorites of mine, and all in wonderful shades of luscious leather. Scanning the fashion scene this fall for boots, I discovered a treasure [...]

White is for All Seasons

White is for All Seasons

The old fashion theme that white is not to be worn after Labor Day has been erased by the haute fashion designers from Paris, Italy, and the American elite designers. I have written about this before, but just the other day I heard a discussion about white clothing now being put away because “white is [...]

It’s a Dog’s World

It’s a Dog’s World

Talk about trends, man has always loved man’s best friend, our precious puppies. Facebook is a great place to find the most amusing and amazing videos of dogs sharing the joy of their playful nature, the funny antics, devotion, and bravery of every type of breed. I have laughed until my sides hurt and cried [...]

Track Pants and Knits Chic Trend

Track Pants and Knits Chic Trend

Darlings, the new trend of track pants is most flattering for all body types. And the way the fashion fits around the ankle is so feminine, especially worn with heels, Yes, I know how high and uncomfortable the 4 or 5 inch heels are for work or casual wear. So, I suggest a mid heel [...]
