Gingham is such a happy print. I’ve noticed lately that there seems to be a whole lot of fashion featured in this lovely print for Summer 2018. Gingham options  are abounding and if you want to put a little skip in your step why not add a pop of this happy print to your wardrobe this Summer.

RIP Kate Spade

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

I was in my car leaving a meeting when a friend texted me  just two words today:

Kate Spade.

I texted back:

Kate Spade ?

The next texted shocked me to the core…

Suicide.

I could not believe what I was seeing. I quickly scrolled the news feed on my phone and read in disbelief that Kate Spade had taken her life earlier this morning in her Park Avenue apartment. Like many of you I am saddened to the core that we have lost such a lovely, effervescent, and amazing designer. Kate Spade,the person, the brand,the collections… were infused with whimsy and a major dose of happiness.  Earlier today Elizabeth Kiester ( a dear friend and former co worker described her to a perfection saying to Vogue.com:

” She was human champagne, bubbly and effervescent, making everything bright and sparkly and funny and fun.”

How sad  we all are to lose such a lovely and remarkable woman.

Our deepest sympathies to her family.

RIP Dearest Kate Spade

A Penchant for Boston Proper

Posted By: Terri
Category: Designer Spotlight

I’ve been an avid shopper of the online site Boston Proper for more years than I can even recall. It’s one of my “go to sites” where  I can find affordable and fabulous fashion that is well made and designer inspired. If you need some verification besides my own to this statement testimonial, might I share  a little tidbit about my dear friend Penelope ( a major shopper and devotee of all thing HIGH fashion-think Chanel, Prada, Gucci-her closet is a Who’s Who of the best brands in luxury fashion). Any who, years ago I wrote  a post about Boston Proper (BP) and being the good friend that she is- Penelope read the post and then proceeded to check out BP for herself. Fast forward a few weeks after Penelope read the post and I get a phone call: It went something like this: “Terri, I don’t know if I should thank you or scold you because I have been shopping BP like crazy. I love everything they carry. Seriously…… this is getting out of control!”  She was so happy with the quality and the price points that to this day Penelope continues to shop BP on a verrry regular basis. Quite a testimonial from a friend known to exclusively shop Designer (and I don’t mean discount). To get your Summer wardrobe off to a fresh start I thought it might be nice to share my favorite item on the site and encourage you to clickity click over to BP and see for yourself that Summer just got a whole lot more fashionable and affordable. Enjoy! P.S. Penelope and I are still the dearest of friends.

One LOVEly Wedding

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

If you were glued to your TV earrrly Saturday Morning-you were not alone. Some 29 million plus people tuned into watch the Royal Wedding. To say it was a visual spectacular filled with one breathtaking image after another would be an understatement.

As I snuggled under my covers watching the entire coverage from start to finish (not once but twice) what most resonated with me beyond the beauty and grandeur of the day was the refreshing display of LOVE. The love between Prince Harry and Megan Markle reminded us all that Love is indeed the most beautiful blessing of all.

Category: Fashion

Lily Aldridge wearing Ralph Lauren at The Met Ball

The shirt dress has been around forEVER and understandably so. It’s a classic style staple. Growing up, I remember my Mother wearing a bevy of beautiful shirt dresses everyday, little did I realize at the time that all Mother’s didn’t sport such a feminine silhouette to do house chores.

The shirt dress circa 1950

The shirt dress may be simple in style but add your own personal touches with statement jewelry, a great belt or colorful handbag and heels to make the look your own.

Here are a few images to get you inspired!

Hat season is upon us. I know that many of us don’t even think of wearing hats, let alone have the need or remote urge to purchase a new topper if not truly inspired. However…that may change (and you may suddenly have a craving for a new chapeau) after you tune into the Kentucky Derby or THE Royal Wedding this month as you preview a bevy of beautiful hats on display. Here are a few fabbbbbulous toppers (all in white-(because let’s face it white goes with everything) just to give you a head start on your hat craving.
