  • Baby Got Back(less)- Mules are Back! How to Wear Them


    Slides, mules, clogs-that oh so familiar clank-clank sound of backless shoes, have once again come around the fashion merry-go-round and are on every must-have ‘IT’ list for spring. Are you ready? No, its NOT the slippery slides that the khaki-clad capri pant crowd refuse to give up. These mules stand tall, strong and have an architectural point of view.

    Miu Miu Baseball Cap

    If you were around during the original airings of ‘Seinfeld’ than you just might remember the kind of sartorial red flag seeing a woman around town wearing a baseball hat once conjured up-   being sporty in an almost entirely non-fashion sense.

  • Michelle Obama Style Alert- First Lady Wears Vintage Style and Does NOT Look Like an Old Lady

      I’ll Have What She’s Having : A mellow hued watercolor floral print that although vintage inspired, looks fresh and age appropriate on First Lady Michelle Obama. A rich print on a classic 60’s inspired princess coat could have gone all wrong on someone Michelle Obama’s age, as it could have aged her beyond her years if it weren’t for some modern updates and a slightly more relaxed silhouette that took away the Jackie Kennedy edge from her ensemble.

    Men’s Style Advice: Can I ditch the cummerbund and pleated tuxedo shirt and go more modern?  Dear Sharon: I saw your site “Focus on Style,” I’m not sure if you answer men’s questions but here goes.
