Dolce & Gabbana

Halloween is O.V.E.R.   Soooo.you know what that means..it’s officially “The Season Of SPARKLE” aka the holiday season is ON! I am so NOT jumping the gun on this one because quite frankly Christmas Decor has been UP in retail shops for over two months. Which means…. that if we’re crunching the numbers  -I’m wayyyyyy behind- by like 60 days. That being said, I will ease you into the SOS (Season of Sparkle ) slowly.

To get things going why not start with a bit of “embellishment”

Monochromatic Monday

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

If you want to look pulled together,super chic and maybe  even appear like you’ve lost 5-10 pounds over the weekend it’s as easy (and I do mean EASY) as wearing one color palette from head to toe. Faster than you can brew your morning  cup of espresso-you can pull together a  monochromatic look that  makes you feel marvelous! (And I ask…who doesn’t want that especially- on a Monday?!

Truth be told, I will admit to opting out and wearing basic black head to toe (but that’s wayyy to easy) and lately I’m feeling a need  for a little more color in our lives. The good news… is that you can achieve the same stylish and sleek appearance by mixing different textures in the same color palette.

I’ve shared a few colorful options just to get you inspired. Here’s to having a fabuuulous  Monochromatic Monday.

Jewelry Organization Tips and Tricks

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion tips

When one of your dearest friends on the planet tells you she has just dropped the contents of her jewelry box on the floor and is in need of some jewelry organization tips, one does not hesitate for even a nano second to oblige.

My friend Mary, is a major and I do mean MAJOR… Glamour Girl. She is a  classic beauty and surrounds herself with the most gorgeous pieces. (Read into that ….Mary has a very elevated taste level aka great taste)! When she mentioned that the jewelry box  had fallen on the floor I wanted to fly right out and bend down and pick up every bit of bling because when it comes to Mary, you just know every piece is Estate worthy and who doesn’t love an afternoon admiring some pretty substantial sparkly!

As time was of the essence, I wanted to respond and give Mary some easy  organizing tips that require a few simple steps:

There are basically two basic components of jewelry organization:

  1. Group like items together
  2. Make sure you can see EVERYTHING. (If you don’t see it you won’t use it or…. even remember you have it). i.e. Don’t even think of throwing everything in a drawer without any dividers because when it comes to jewelry we are talking major tangling and possibly damaging your beautiful bling (and that is so NOT happening on my watch).

If you have the drawer space I suggest:

A. Drawer organizers (available at The Container Store and Michael’s) 

B. If you lack drawer space opt for displaying your items in pretty trays and decorative  items on  top of your dresser. (see above photo)

C. If you have oodles of wall space, might I suggest a decorative hanging of your most beautiful items for easy access and major display options. 

P.S. Miss you Mary-Wish I was there to help organize your fabulous jewelry drawers.

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….
