They say that the 90’s are back.

When it comes to Chanel, I wonder if they ever left…

Chanel is  a classic.  This 1991 Chanel Jacket  worn by Supermodel Naomi Campbell looks like she is walking the Runway today.

Proof that Chanel is truly Timeless.

A quick disclaimer…I am NOT  (I repeat not) trying to rush you into the holiday season aka Christmas, BUT time is of the essence when it comes to personalizing and I just came across a steal of a deal that I think you are going to L.O.V.E.

Everyone loves a monogram. It’s chic and elegant and really adds a little special something to an item. Don’t you agree?! That’s the good news about monogramming-the not so good news…making something extra special takes time and we all know that once Halloween hits we blink and it’s Christmas. Sooo, to avoid that holiday rush and get in on some seriously beautiful items that come with free monogramming (for a limited time) I want to tell you about a lovely site that I highly recommend-Mark and Graham.

I’ve been an avid fan of  Mark & Graham from the moment their first email landed in my Inbox a few years ago. Mark & Graham offer a wide selection of some pretty chic and stylish gifts that anyone would love to give and receive. Pricing is very affordable and their quality is perfection. Now here’s the good news: Monogramming on Mark & Graham is offered for FREE  but only  for a limited time-use code MAKEAMARK.

I think you will love this site and urge you to get you clicking away and into the gift giving mode without delay. Enjoy!

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

I had no idea this was a thing- but today is National Handbag Day! Who Knew?! Now you and I both do.

There’s something about the perfect handbag that can really make an outfit and lift your mood. Handbags come in a bevy of beautiful colors, styles and shapes and if you’re anything like me you have more than a few selections in your closet.

As an added bonus, I’ve attached a handbag “glossary” aka fashion vocabulary (courtesy of enerie.com) should you desire a refresher on handbag styles by name.

Handbags are a  closet staple and one that will last for years given the proper care,upkeep and most of all “handling.” Here are a few handbag images to keep you inspired….

Get to the POINT

Posted By: Terri

Here’s your style scoop for the day:

A pointed toe shoe elongates the leg, and aids in making you look taller and thinner (and I ask-who doesn’t want that)?! It doesn’t matter what the heel height is: 5 inch,kitten heel or flats-pointed toe is the way to go to look chic and sleek. You’re welcome.

Back to Basic(s)

Posted By: Terri
Category: Wardrobe basics

Nothing and I do mean nothing is more basic than your classic white shirt. After you stop YAWNING at the mere mention of this closet staple might I just say that the white shirt has a multitude of style options (dress it up -pair with a skirt-pencil, long and short) and pants or dress down with jeans, it can  be a stylish and crisp alternative to amp up your style quotient.

The white shirt  is a blank canvas, allowing you to accessorize to the 10th power  and customize your look to attain  uber fabulousness. You can pair it with anything and everything. Put on a pair of amazing earrings, or  add a statement necklace, opt for a super stylish footwear (pump,boots,loafers) and WHAH LAH! You’ll be amazed at  how a simple white shirt can elevate your entire look to the next level.

There are 3 (count um) 3 whole days left of Summer and if you’re anything like me you’ve already assessed your closet for Fall. If you’re looking for a little sneak peak into some major fashion inspo let’s take a gander at plaid for the season ahead because it’s going to be BIG. Plaid was everywhere on the runways last spring and it’s no surprise that it returns with a vengeance. This isn’t your grandmother’s plaid worn simply and understated. It’s plaid with a twist mixing bold prints and colors to your ensemble to update your look.. Below are a few images of inspiration to give you a heads up on how “plaid can be had” this season.
