stripes body There’s a bevy of stripes happening for Spring 2017. Stripes are popping up on dresses, tops, pants, shoes, bags-you get the picture-pretty much EVERYTHING. Stripes can be super slimming when worn the right way but pick the wrong stripe and you may end up looking 10 pounds heavier and I have NEVER met a woman on this planet that wants that! Here are some simple stripe rules to remember:..

Remember thin stripes have a SLIMMING effect.

Stripes that swirl around the body keep the eye moving and depending on the drape of the fabric can be  slimming and uber chic.

When in doubt and you need a pop of print try sporting a stripe printed bag or shoe.

Hellllo April. Warm weather days are ahead and what better way to prepare  to look polished than to peruse for the perfect white suit. Now you might be thinking that white suits seems so boring but on the contrary the perfectly appointed white suit can not only be super stylish when the fit is perfection but beyond fashionable and so versatile.

You can pair the perfect white jacket with EVERYTHING and same goes for the pants. Just make sure when wearing white that it fits to a tee, is lined or at the very least you wear the proper under attire to make it seem less and last but not least make sure it’s WHITE (translation-this is an item that must be pristine-no spots, spills or stains because it’s white for goodness sake and everything will show unlike it’s counterpart basic black when you can pretty much spill an entire glass of wine on and no one would be the wiser.

Here are a few looks that might just change your mind about this whole white suit being boring  idea not to mention solidify the notion that it’s a major wardrobe staple for the Spring/ Summer months ahead.

Everyday should be…

Posted By: Terri
Category: Monday Mantra

Yesterday was National Puppy Day and in my world EVERYDAY should be National Puppy aka Dog day. Not one to discriminate-the same sentiment goes if you own a sweet cat, kitten or any house pet under your care. No matter what their size, shape or breed….LOVE them because they are the sweetest souls and their love is unconditional.

I’ve only had one dog in my life thus far and long for the day when I can share my home with another pet someday soon when I’m more settled.  You must make time to be with your four legged loves. They are to be tended to and cared for and always cherished.

We can learn allot from our furry friends.  They are truly one of life’s greatest gifts.

Dita Von Teese ALL WAYS looks totally pulled together. Head to toe the girl is style perfection. You KNOW this doesn’t just happen. Dita pays attention to detail(s) and the total effect is a pulled together ladylike look that is glamorous to the tenth power.  Here are a few style rules we can glean from the beautiful Dita ..

1. Don’t leave the house without: Makeup (at the very least put on some lip color so you have a hint of color.

2. Put together pieces that are figure flattering and bring out your best assets.

3. Consider wearing more skirts, dresses and actual “outfits” instead of sporting workout wear 24/7.

4. Essentials like the perfect handbag and heels are something to embrace.

5.  Hair is combed and coifed-This is essential!
