  • It’s Black and White- Fashion for your size that’s age-appropriate too!

    Whether you’re a size 2, 12, or 22 there is no excuse not to look fabulous at any age! Knowing your body and what works isn’t always easy, however.

    1236550_fpx.tif

      Dear Sharon: I am not planning a big night out but still want something special to wear on New Year’s Eve. As a mater of fact, I’m never one to really go all out on New Year’s Eve but that doesn’t mean that I don’t like to celebrate in some small way. At best, we are going next door for a champagne toast with a few neighbors, but most likely, my husband and I will hang in and stay cozy….

  • Fashion Turkeys- Fugly Fads To Thankfully Put to Rest

    turkey-fashion-vert-238x305

    No one is always perfect. There are moments in one’s life where you have had to have made some fashion missteps, it’s only a part of growing up. It’s normal, I swear, to not be perfect 365 days a year. But to keep following the trendy flock without looking in a mirror or paying mind on how that fad works on YOU, is just plain silly… particularly when there are some dang nasty, fugly, tacky, and unflattering looks around. Considering…

  • Actress Jaime King Don’s A Fun Holiday Ready Frock On The Red Carpet

    Jaime King

    Ultra-cute actress Jaime King donned one of the most playful little-black-dresses that we’ve seen on the red carpet in a long while at the 16th annual GQ “Men Of The Year” party last week in Los Angeles. In basic black, the dress’s flouncy a-line hem, graphic embroidery and peek-a-boo bust-line go well with King’s simple make-up and elegant, sleek hair for a look that’s full of grown-up energy. Take a cue from the actress this holiday season and look for…

  • How to Look Sexy and Modern? Try some well-placed slits like Eva Green in Alexander McQueen

    Eva Green an AW11 black split sleeve dress and Pre AW11 leopard print peep toe shoes by Alexander McQueen to the ‘The Rum Diary’ London

    I’ll Have What She’s Having: Streamlined and bold slits in just the right places There’s something about actress Eva Green‘s smart sexiness that reminds us of  the raw style of Italian actresses back in the 1950’s via Veneto days. It’s a control over non-fussiness and an emphasis on dynamic sex appeal and sultriness, best mastered in sleek, non revealing lines. Case in point: Eva’s on trend, but not trendy, double-slit & slit sleeve Alexander McQueen LBD from AW11. Oh, and those…

  • Fashion How-To’s -Short Heels That Aren’t Short On Style

    Rochas Slingbacks Fall 2011

    Think of this as your “How To Wear Low Heels” tip sheet… Blame it on the abundance of too-high heels, walking behind girls fumbling in them, or our admiration for the cool retro sophistication that Rochas has been championing as of late, but we are beginning to rethink the short heel and their recent wearable reemergence on the scene. Once matronly and down-right blase, the updates to what we consider the “smart” heel height offer an entirely new way to think about proportion…

    Celebrity Sightings In Paris - October 22, 2011

    I’ll Have What She’s Having (from the waist up): Rihanna manages to ruin a few very good pieces with some dang tacky tights and a girdle for a dress. There, I said it! Rihanna was sporting some super chic fashion elements on her 3AM return to her hotel after her concert in Paris. There’s the well-proportioned floppy fedora (unlike that over-sized Kim Kardashian monstrosity), the covetable cropped jacket, and the to-die-for Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci “Antigona” bag… all in classic…
