The Trench Look

The Trench Look

Darlings, can you believe school is about to start? Where did the summer go so fast? Stores are buzzing with parents buying school supplies and new clothes. Speaking of new clothes, I am always interested in the newest trends, so, my complete attention has turned to fall fashion. Anne Taylor is a chic shop and [...]

Movie Star Style

Movie Star Style

Darlings, the Old Hollywood classics are so chic. Remember how Audrey Hepburn could put a scarf on her head and wrap the ends toward the back, tie them, put on sunglasses, and look so glam? Well, perhaps some of you are too young to remember, but it would be worthwhile to look her style up [...]

The Birkin Bang

The Birkin Bang

Darlings, when designer Heidi Slimane sent his cast of models down the Saint Laurant Fall 2014 runway with a bit of nostalgia from the ’70s, a hot trend ignited into a flaming fashion for hair styling. Perhaps some of you will remember the Anglo-French singer Jane Birkin. Her eye-glazing choppy fringe bangs went viral world [...]

Simple Prevention Steps for Skincare Problems

Simple Prevention Steps for Skincare Problems

Swimming and floating in the pool is great fun and healthy exercise, but it can play havoc with one’s skin. Chlorine is very harmful for the skin if not washed off with soap. It causes very crusty dryness and irritation, so a quick shower with just warm water will not be enough, remember the soapy [...]

Natural Weight Loss

Natural Weight Loss

Do you know that after all those chocolate bunnies, peeps, jelly beans, and fine boxes of chocolates filled with caramel, maple crème, cocoanut and so many more delights, it is time to hop back on the wagon and lose those pounds such temptations add to the hips? Believe me after such abandoned feasting, I know [...]

The Romance of Engagement Rings

The Romance of Engagement Rings

Engagement rings and wedding rings are thought by most to be the most important jewelry ever acquired or bought. Girls dream of the time their engagement ring is presented to them with the proposal of marriage, which is certainly the most romantic time of one’s life. I am such a romantic and join with the [...]

Summer Scents

Summer Scents

There is new trend in fashion this season: wear a fragrance that gives one the delightful scent of summer or the beach. Just aim fresh subtle aroma of lightness that hints of summer. It leaves a lingering impression of freshness. People you come in contact with are left thinking about how airy and cheerful you [...]

A Summer of Maxi Dresses

A Summer of Maxi Dresses

Wow, the maxi dress is really a trend this summer! The maxi dress was a major fashion in the 60′s and 70′s.; it seems everything old is new again. Jackie Kennedy’s sister, Lee, was remembering that era and how easy it was to dress for a party in a recent article I read. One could [...]

Blending Fashion Levels

Blending Fashion Levels

Darlings, I love the most elite fashion designers; in fact, I have a passion for them. But one must be extremely wealthy to wear the most elite designers from dawn to dark everyday. I am talking about the really haute designers that cost a fortune. There is a way to way to achieve the look [...]

Memorial Day Civil War Mourning Tradition

Memorial Day Civil War Mourning Tradition

Memorial Day is a time honoring our fallen soldiers for their dedication to give the greatest sacrifice, their lives, for our country. For some, this distinguished day is also a time to reflect and remember the loss of loved ones. Customs for mourning during the Civil War era have been described as an art form [...]

The Sport of Kings

The Sport of Kings

May is upon us. May, the merry month of sunshine, blossoms turning into tender green leaves, school being out for the summer, kids’ kicking their shoes off to run through clover, and the sport of kings, polo. Polo is a favorite sport of mine. As a spectator, my goodness, this southern belle could never have [...]

Royals Visit Memphis for Wedding

Royals Visit Memphis for Wedding

Darlings, my goodness, how the world is such a small place for Prince William! Three weeks of a non-stop royal tour in Australia and only back in merry ole England for a few days, his bags are packed once again for a grand wedding in Memphis, Tennessee. Prince William must have the stamina of a [...]

She Wears a Smile

She Wears a Smile

Darlings, last week my article was about a friend of mine who is an overwhelming inspiration for women. Her accomplishments for the needs of humanity are constant and her ability to understand with great compassion is most remarkable. She has raised over 8 million dollars for the education of the arts and charities that help [...]

Yvonne Crum

Yvonne Crum

Yvonne Crum is not your typical product of a disadvantaged childhood. Upon becoming a young woman, she decided that who she would become and what she would ultimately accomplish would be determined not by fate, but by herself. Coming from a background in sociology and psychology, she quickly realized a career in social work wasn’t [...]

A Few Tips for Mother-Daughter Fashion

A Few Tips for Mother-Daughter Fashion

Darlings, most mother-daughter relationships have a very gentle (ahem) debate about fashion choices. My daughter and I have waged war over the choice of birthday party dresses (age two), school clothes (age 5), preteen events (11), teen age (13-18), college attire (age 19), her wedding (age 22), and to this current day. I always wanted [...]

Fashions for the Breezy New Season

Fashions for the Breezy New Season

Darlings, isn’t it soothing freedom for one’s comfort to shed heavy fabrics and layers of winter clothing? This winter has been so harsh with whipping icy wind, snow, and frigid temperatures that required even more heavy clothing than usual. So, what a delight to don light, flowing clothing that allows our skin to breath the [...]
