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

Tuesday’s (Age defying) Tip(s)

Posted By: Terri

If you’re looking for a few timely tips to look younger here’s the short list (actually my top 3) that won’t break the bank or require a trip to a dermatologist/plastic surgeon . The best part… all are soooo doable and affordable.

1.Wear a bra! Period. End of story. I strongly suggest sporting a bra with underwire to give you a much needed lift and provide you with a more youthful appearance.

2. Two words..Crest Whitestrips -nothing ages you faster than yellow teeth. I prefer the Glamorous White version because it seems to really do the job in  the shortest amount of time.

Crest Glamorous White Stripes $39.99 at Bed Bath & Beyond (use 20% off coupon and save even more)

3. Invest in a nude pointed toe pump. It elongates your leg making you appear taller and thinner and goes with EVERYTHING! A true style staple.

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.

Helloooooo JUNE!

So the question is… How did it get to be June? Wasn’t it just January? I can’t believe we’re half way through the year already. Let’s admit it all together (there’s comfort in numbers). Does anyone  even remember your New Years resolutions?

June is  the half way mark of the year soooo let’s reassess shall we. What do you really want to do this Summer. Walk on the beach? Take a vacation? Clear out the clutter in your closet. Workout more, relax more, enjoy the long summer nights? Whatever your heart desires I hope you make a summer bucket list to keep you on track and make sure you take time to enjoy every moment .

Here’s my short list:

  1. Wake up early one weekend morning (5 AM ish) and head down to the beach. Watch the sun come up as I take a long bike ride. (P.S. get bike serviced-inflate tires and grease chain)
  2.  Host a Summer soiree for my friends on the upstairs deck.
  3. Detox (aka stop eating so much dark chocolate) and swap out a green drink for lunch at least 2 days a week.
  4. Give myself weekly facials, manicures and pedicures.
  5. Go for a short vacay-weekend out of town.
  6. Sew at least one outfit each week this summer.
  7. Read one great book a month
  8. Breath and enjoy my days more.
  9. Start my sewing blog
  10. Expand my Styling Business
  11. Finish writing my book
