Holiday Quick List… The Tuxedo Jacket

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion Fashion tips Uncategorized

The Tuxedo Jacket is a closet staple. It’s oh so chic, sleek and versatile. Trust me when I say that this is one wardrobe piece that you will wear for years to come.  You can dress it up or down and it can be  paired with a multitude of items depending on the occasion and your preference.

If you have a black tie event, than by all means go GLAM and wear the jacket with a slim fitting tuxedo pant. You can also pair your tuxedo jacket with a long or short skirt,  a pair of sleek leather pants or  even your basic jeans (preferably  in black) .

Tuxedo jackets are available at every price point and can be made to look even more expensive  by having it tailored to fit. Pay special attention  before you purchase to jacket details with special consideration on the lining of the jacket. A fully lined tuxedo jacket creates a more steam lined  silhouette and  isn’t that the whole point of wearing a tuxedo jacket -to look as sleek and chic as possible!

Black Friday Sales & Shopping Tips

Posted By: Terri
Category: Uncategorized

Another Thanksgiving  is on the books and before you put your fork down after  partaking in the last bite of pumpkin pie, the department stores were open and ready to jump start  the official holiday shopping season…commonly referred to as Black Friday.  As I sit at my computer and scroll the MASSIVE list of Black Friday Sales, one can only conclude that EVERYONE is having a Black Friday Sale. To make things a  bit more manageable (translation-EASY),   I have compiled a list of my favorite fashion sites to peruse  (see below). I’ve also included  some shopping tips to help you stay focused on the task  at hand…Happy Holiday Shopping,

Holiday Shopping Tips…

No matter where you shop or what you’re looking to buy  this little checklist will help you stay on point  and get your Christmas shopping done in record time and at a savings….

  1. I KNOW you’ve heard this a 1000 times but it bears repeating to drive the point home..MAKE A LIST. Seriously make a COMPLETE list of every single person you want to purchase a gift for.
  2. Make a budget for your Christmas gift shopping.
  3. Next to each persons name that you’re buying  a gift for-list a few hobbies, gift suggestions  or interests and also list  budget range that you feel comfortable with per person.
  4. Divide list of gift items by category . You can cross off a number of like minded friends by purchasing gifts in a single  store or section.
  5. Consider going Homemade. Don’t think you have to go all “Martha Stewart” but perhaps put together a personalized Photo book via Shutterfly or Mixbook, make a beautiful basket of your best homemade baked goods or treating your friend to their favorite spa treatment  or service with a gift certificate.

I hope this quick list will aid in making this an easy and stress fee shopping season.

Magical Moment

Posted By: Terri
Category: Uncategorized

This is not my usual post where I share some ditty about fashion, style, decor or a motivational or timely tip. Toda,y I feel compelled to  discuss something we all need to do ASAP..for our own happiness and overall well being. It goes without saying that I am motivated to share the following observation…

Is it Christmas already? It seems as if the Xmas Season is in FULL swing and we haven’t even celebrated Thanksgiving. Call me crazy,but have YOU noticed a  large number of Pre-Black Friday Sales ?  In addition,I’ve also been aware of  Christmas music being played everywhere! Yes, I’ve heard Silent night at the Grocery store already, not to mention Christmas carols being piped in at every store in the Mall. May I gently remind everyone that we haven’t even celebrated Thanksgiving yet.  Please don’t get me wrong-I’m not the Grinch BUT can’t’t we at least give Thanksgiving it’s due. What’s the hurry? What’s the rush?

In my humble opinion, I think we all need to take a collective breath and SLOW down. We are moving at warp speed to get everything done and we’re forgetting to take a moment  and enjoy where we are now.

So for today…let’s take a moment or even two and just BE. Stop…look around… breath and be thankful for the moment. AND P.S. Thanksgiving is two weeks from today. Have a beautiful Day!

Today’s Sunrise in LA…..Beautiful.

Decorating Question?

How can you take the smallest room in house and make it one of the most memorable?

Answer: Select a wallpaper with some major WOW and take those small walls from drab to FABU! Forget the days of keeping a powder room demur and oh-so simple. Take that sweet small space and give it a pop of personality.

The Headband is Back

Headbands are back and they’re all grown up.

TREND ALERT: Hair trends are happening for Fall and let me tell you no one and I mean no one can could have predicted that headbands would be back. Yes my lovelies,the headband of the 90’s (remember Hilary Clinton wore them in droves) has made a comeback and it is big.

Headbands for Fall 2019 are padded giving a sort of halo (or as I like to think crown) effect to the wearer. Many come with additional embellishment which one can decide to wear on depending on the occasion.

Headbands for Fall are back and bigger than ever. Enjoy!

Grazing Table 101

Posted By: Terri
Category: Uncategorized

Did you know about this latest food craze?I guess we can forget cheese plates and passed Hors d’oeuvres—it’s all about the Grazing Table!

If you’re not familiar with this latest culinary trend, let me break it down for you. It’s called the Grazing Table. Basically, it’s an “epic abundance of food meant for grazing. Tables are filled to the brim with a bevy of fresh fruits, veggies, breads, sliced meats, crackers, antipasto,relishes, sweets,sushi-whatever your heart and food preference desires. Grazing tables originally started in Australia, and began first popping up at weddings here in America. The art of grazing is growing so quickly that you can hire a catering company to put your table together or do it yourself.

The grazing table gives you options galore as to what type of grazing you want to do. All you need to do is decide what type of food you want to serve and go from there. I have a feeling this grazing phenomenon might just be the perfect party solution for taking us all off of social media and making us all more social in person. Here’s to Grazing.
