My favorite purchase for Fall

As I’ve gotten older, I find myself buying less items of clothing but more “special” items. This Frame blazer goes in that category. In August, I saw this blazer but just couldn’t make myself pull the trigger. But after dreaming about it (literally) for two months I just couldn’t take it anymore and bought it. Best purchase. Why? The fit is fabulous. It is narrow at the waist but not too tight in the arms. It can be worn at work over a black shift dress or on the weekend with jeans or on a special night with leather pants and a hot pink pump. Finally, it has that “wow” factor. I’m so glad I took the plunge even if it meant some other items in my cart got put back on […]

Happy Halloween…No tricks just treats

  With Halloween setting a record this year, a record high temperature, being cool will be the name of the game but I want pieces that will (1) be comfortable and (2) that I can throw on a layer  when the temperature  eventually drops. Plus Southern Living listed my neighborhood as one of the top ten places to trick or treat and we have a band party next door so I need my A game going tonight. Luckily Bergdorf Goodman 5F has some great pieces that just happen to be on sale. This sale goes on through November 9th but don’t delay these treats won’t last long. All items found under Shop the Latest. Frame Jeans in Black (69.00!) with this Kate Moss for Equipment Silk Blouse that gives me a disco feel. […]

What’s Fresh: The Shirt Dress


It’s that time again!  It’s time for sunny skies, margaritas, and a fab shirt dress.  That’s what I said. . . a shirt dress.  It’s huuuuuge this year, especially if it is blue-ish with a white stripe.  Both Vetements (known for their edgy street/boho vibe) and Versace (known for all things over-sexed and fitted) sent blue and white striped button-downs down the runway for Spring and the fad is spreading like wild-fire.  I think my favorites are the ones from Reformation, Pixie Market, (a total knock-off the the much more expensive Vetements version), Caslon (what a bargain!), Asos (amazing deal and I love that it’s sleeveless and has that great self-tie), and especially this one from Scotch & Soda (the midi is totally where it is at this year and this stripe hits the perfect pitch).  Speaking of bargains, […]

the six pairs of jeans you must have

this past weekend my daughter and i were doing a little fall shopping. we were on the hunt for jeans so it got me thinking about the jeans i have and the ones that i need. now my list of six does not include white jeans. it’s past labor day and i know people say that we can wear them past labor day but white jeans just do not do it for me so i’m always glad to put them away. “jorts” are also not on my list nor are daisy dukes. i’m 44 people and those looks passed me a long time ago and let’s just say “jorts” never made it into my rotation (thank goodness). so my top six includes a flare, a gray (this is a great neutral) a […]
