Black Out

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

I know it’s fall and I also know  that one should embrace all the beauuutiful autumnal colors of the season BUT there’s just something about  black that I find a need to embrace EVERY SINGEL SEASON. Try as I may to branch out into other colors I always come back to black. I guess I just can’t help myself. I adore  the head to toe blackness of it all. Maybe that’s why they termed it Basic BLACK.

The weekend is upon us and with all the Oscar dress buzz lingering I thought it might be nice to feature a little weekend wow. Yep-you too can be glamour worthy with a little black dress accessorized to the nines. Here’s a look that you can do too! Simply go into your closet and pull out your most flattering LBD (little black dress) accessorize it accordingly with a little bling and some shoe zing and before your can utter the words Glamour Girl you will be worthy of a weekend moment of wow!

Basic Black is NEVER Boring……

I have been spending allot of time in the Doctor’s office as of late due to my recent surgery. Now the only reason I share that little nugget of specific info is to set the scene for what I’m about to share with you. As I sat in the office waiting to be called for my appointment with the Dr. the woman sitting next to me was flipping through a fashion mag and turned to her daughter sitting next to her and said: “Oh, look at all this black-black coats,black shoes, black dresses..it all so boring.” Whh.h.h.hat! I couldn’t believe my ears. True I was sitting in a Drs. office in the 90210 (Beverly Hills zip code) and yes the woman was leafing through a recent Harpers Bazzar magazine but really??Black boring? Never . Anyone who thinks that black is boring

a) Doesn’t understand the concept of chic,

b) Can’t be a fan of Coco Chanel and

c) I don’t think we could ever be friends….

Enjoy some very un-boring black today!

Fashion Alert: Black is Back.k.k for Fall 2012.

My only question is: Did it ever leave?

Black has always been a “go to”staple for most Glamour Girls. After many seasons of  promoting brown, carmel and burgandy the fashion forecasters have declared that black is once again the color for Fall 2012. Welcome back black-it’s like you never left.

Parkas at Vera Wang Fall 2011….

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion Week

Vera Wang can class-up anything! Case in point is Vera’s recent fall 2011 collection filled with a fashionable assortment of PARKAS… (Yes, you are reading that right, I said parkas). This isn’t the parka of yesterday, made of polyester with down feathers enclosed in neat rows of casings that made everyone look like an overstuffed snowman but instead a high fashion parka  adorned with feathers or fur lining and made of the  finest wools and cashmeres.. Like I said…Vera Wang can class up anything!

Basic Black.

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

There is nothing more basic than the color Black. Seasons come and seasons go, but black will always be in fashion. The basic black wardrobe is a no brainier, and although many may feel that it could become boring-(wearing one color, day after day) I have one word for that …..ACCESSORIES!  Much of my life was spent on the road (and no I don’t come from a family of gypsies or circus people).  I lived out of a suitcase for months at a time and I am here to tell you beautiful Glamour Girls that basic black was not only my best friend but always looked chic, traveled well and made one appear pounds thinner…

Should you find yourself in a little mid-week slump and pondering what to wear???? just reach for the black ensemble in your closet and doll it up with a FABU belt or necklace or earring or perhaps all three. The worst that can happen is that people will think you’ve lost a few pounds…

A.h.h.h. the Benefits of wearing  Black!
