You’ve probably tried all the possible sweater and denim combinations in your closet and are in major need of something to spruce up your day-to-day ensembles.

Fountain Of 30’s Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

If you are like me, you wait until the last-minute to buy gifts for your loved ones for Valentine’s Day. Then you are left with the Russell Stover Chocolate heart box from the drugstore which is sorta cliche (as are roses with baby’s breath). Not that I would know (ahem). Since you have less than two weeks to get it…

How I Cheat My Way To Straight Hair In 10 Minutes

It’s no secret I have naturally curly/wavy hair and considering few want what God gave them, I like to straighten it as much as I can during the cooler and humid-free months. Since I color my hair, I don’t like to blow dry and flat-iron it too often because it’s very damaging. I’m also terrible at it. So I either…

Runway To Real Way: Late Winter Bags that Transition to Spring (A Few of our Favorite Things!)

February has arrived! And though we’ve had the mildest winter in the Midwest in recent memory, February still marks the milestone of making it over the hump of January leaving little more than a smooth, easy slide into spring. February also marks the start of Fashion Week season, inspiring us all to start the springtime closet clean out a little…

Street Style: Pajama Dressing For Day

As soon as I saw these Recliner pajama pants with what looks like The New York Times print on them, I knew I had to have them and that I’d wear them as pants. Forget sleeping! In case you missed the memo, pajama dressing isn’t just for breakfast anymore. However, you can’t simply grab your favorite flannel set, some shoes…

The Way To Go High Low: New Romantics

Spring is rapidly making its approach (where does the time go?) which means it is time for us to revamp our wardrobes for a lighter fare. A spring ’16 trend that can’t be ignored is the softer, romantic look that was spotted on multiple runways. From Oscar de la Renta‘s long floral maxi dresses to Rodarte‘s all-lace looks, it seems…

SAG Awards Fashion: Nicole Kidman, Julianne Moore, Claire Danes, Kate Winslet, Naomi Watts and More

Did you ever see so much bad fashion in your life? Welcome to the 2016 Screen Actors Guild Awards! Not sure what the celebrities were thinkin- maybe they wanted to be casual (no…that’s the People’s Choice Awards), or maybe they wanted to make a statement (MTV VMAs, anyone?) Do the designers think that weirdly placed cut outs are back in…

Celebrity Style Steal: Ines de la Fressange

With Paris Couture week just ending we turn to French model and designer Ines de la Fressange for an easy to wear Parisian street look. From the oversized white blouse to the mix of navy and black, there is nothing that isn’t chic about this ensemble. I am in love with Fressange’s white oversized blouse. Try this blouse by 3.1…

Trend To Try: Tunic Dressing

A few months ago Carol wrote a post on How to Wear Pants Under Your Dress. At first I thought she was nuts, because I hated the jeans under dresses trend that was popular about 7 years ago. Then I realized she meant tunic dresses and I have to admit, the idea has grown on me. Today’s version is more…

Celebrity Style at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival: Kate Beckinsale, Chloe Sevigny, Kerry Washington, Elizabeth Banks

No one wanted to throw on their most stylish snow pants and start shoveling when Winter Storm Jonas came to the East Coast. Can snow wear even be fashionable? Ironically there’s something about the Sundance Film Festival in Utah that makes us all want to wrap ourselves in the most luxurious knits. The A-listers you’re about to see not only know…

Summer Smooth Skin In The Dead Of Winter

Come late January and early February, everyone starts complaining about their skin. It’s too dry and looks white as the driven snow. As we age, it’s not a good look. I have made it my mission this season to focus on a winter skincare regimen for the skin on the body, since I usually just focus on my face! I…

Needed Now! Warm, Dry Winter Boots

Necessity may be the mother of invention, but it’s also the mother of ugly footwear. I have been avoiding heavy, horrid winter boots for years, but now I may have to submit. Since moving from the city to the burbs of NYC two years ago I had forgotten that the only warm winter boots I own anymore are my Uggs,…

Fashion Through The Ages: Go 70s Style Once Again!

When you heard that 70s looks were on trend last fall (for the second or is this the third time?) you may have groaned like so many women I know. You may think 70s styling is tacky and retro looks are only for young women. But a little color blocking can be a fresh and flattering way to revisit the…

Do You Have Bleachorexia?

Just like some people like to over tan, some like to over bleach…their teeth! Who doesn’t want white teeth? They make you look younger, but some people take it a bit too far. I myself was guilty of over-whitening my teeth about a dozen years ago when I first discovered Crest Whitening Strips. My teeth were so white, they nearly…

Slow Cooker: Blizzard Barbecue Beef Short Ribs

I have been making this delicious fall-off-the-bone barbecue beef short ribs recipe for years. However, it had been a long time since I had taken out the crock pot. My husband requested these when we learned of the recent arrival of Blizzard Jonas so I made sure to stop at the store and buy short ribs. I had most of…
