Category: Fashion Monday Mantra

Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and if you’re blessed with children-may I wish you a belated Happy Mother’s Day.

It’s a brand new week and to start things off on a STYLE note- I thought you might enjoy a sampling of  Haute Hats that were worn this past weekend at the Kentucky Derby. I have been lucky enough to attend in years past and I am here to confirm that the women who dress for the Derby are NOT messing around. The hat is the main attraction but the rest of the ensemble is reallllly  thought out! Enjoy!

The “Spring Crop” is In!

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

Today is the first  FULL day of Spring!  (A season  that single handedly puts Winter in the rear view mirror and ushers in  warmer days filled with sunlight! )

The thought of Spring can instantly make anyone feel better ! Perhaps the reason that  it’s called SPRING in the first place. Besides the longer days of sunlight, warmer weather, brighter  colored clothing options, less layers and the motivation to actually get outside  and do something at night because it’s still light outside…. Spring is the perfect time to refresh, recharge and regroup.

To get Spring started on a “Fashionable” note  I’m spotlighting one of the major trends of the season  tah-dah dah dah….

A dose of color might be the perfect anecdote to put some “Spring in our step” for the upcoming season. After being in lockdown for so long, it could be nice (hedging on restorative) too add a major POP of color to our wardrobe and surrounding.  The good news is that the  peeps at Pantone (the color experts) and The Trend Council have proclaimed the following colors to be trending for the upcoming Spring/Summer season. These vibrant shades are so beautiful they’re bound to brighten your day.  Enjoy!

Today I have a recap of things that I have been loving!

Full disclosure- I’ve been in bed  for almost 2 solid weeks with shingles (Yes, you read that right-Shingles-and I am here to report it is not fun)! But, on the bright side, I’ve had time to read a pretty amazing book, binge watched a Netflix show that kept me on the edge of my seat and viewed collections from New York Fashion Week via Vogue.com.

Soooo without further ado, I want to share my recommendations with you:

Something to Read

One of the best books I’ve read in a very long time (seriously it kept me on the edge of my seat). A thrilling novel by Katherine St. John.

The guest list is small and exclusive. But there’s blood in the water…
A dream vacation for six friends turns deadly in this pulse-pounding, twisting thriller of secrets and revenge…

Reviews:

Clever twists abound . . . Fans of Liane Moriarty and Jessica Knoll will devour this’ Booklist
‘A very juicy thriller’ Cosmopolitan
‘Truly a thriller in every sense of the word. It made my heart race.*****’A reader

Something to Watch 

 

‘This whole story is true, except for the parts that are completely made up.”  

Watch Inventing Anna | Netflix Official Site

https://www.netflix.com › title

Audacious entrepreneur or con artist? A reporter digs into how Anna Delvey convinced New York’s elite she was a German heiress. Based on a true story.

Category: Fashion

Happy Monday. Well, well, well …Here we are starting another week and faster than you can blink we will be sitting down for Thanksgiving Dinner.  Blink again and it will be Christmas.

The holidays are always a busy time but this year it appears that holiday decorating and celebrating are commencing a bit earlier than usual. Have you noticed how many Black Friday Sales are already in full sale mode!

Not one to lag behind, I wanted to give you a little dose of “Glam Inspo” from none other than the lovely people at Vogue.  The December issue is celebrating the return of Sex and the City and has the most beautiful photo spread of Sarah Jessica Parker gracing the cover and a gorgeous photo spread inside.

*Click on any one of the images below and you’ll be directed to the full article online. 

Enjoy!

Monochromatic Monday “Let’s review”

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion tips

Today I want to share one of my absolute favorite styling secrets to looking taller, slimmer and chic. It’s called monochromatic dressing.  I’ve  know… I’ve blogged about this on more than one occasion (because truth be told,  it’s one of my favorite ways to dress). In addition, full disclosure I have been known to style my clients  in shades of the same hue to help them look and feel fabulous!

If per chance you think this look could hedge on borrrring or perhaps consider that you have to make every item matchy-matchy-(translation-that they have to be the exact same shade for the monochromatic look to work) that would be incorrect. Monochromatic dressing is  anything but boring and you can mix textures within the same color to have a look that appears chic, expensive and well thought out.

If you need a little inspiration to get you moving in a monochromatic mood here you go:

If you need just a smidge more clarification that monochromatic dressing is a style staple ..celebrity stylists dress their clients monochromatically so often it’s hard to keep count…
