Anyone who thinks great nail color and design 1) can only be achieved at a salon or 2) is best worn in shades like “buff,” “beige” or “sand” is missing out in the beauty department. Big time. See, I’m a believer in creativity, whether I’m talking about nail color or wall color. In fact, when […]
Great shoes are everywhere, from department stores to the local thrift shop. But as we all know, there are shoes and then there are. .. designer shoes. Our mission is to find cheap designer shoes: ones that keep our bank accounts intact without sacrificing the quality of a sturdily-constructed pair of Marc Jacobs heels.
When we think of the United States Postal Service, thoughts of bills and cards from Grandma come to mind. But accessories and clothes? Hmmm. In an effort to combat financial struggles (Saturday delivery ends this summer), the agency recently announced that the USPS line “Rain Heat & Snow” will debut in a variety of department […]
Can a woman ever be too old to wear something? Sigh. Usually, I’m a “who says you can’t?” gal, urging ladies to stand up against commony held fashion beliefs. White after Labor Day? Who says we can’t? A patent leather purse with patent leather shoes? Who says we can’t? However, my 38-year-old self has one exception when it comes to certain fashions: […]
Decorative pillows: who knew? They’re an affordable way to freshen up the look of a room when we don’t feel like breaking out the paint (or cash.. or time) for a home decor overhaul. They’re my go-to quick fix for adding instant charm. From faux leather to florals, fun phrases or animal images – and in various shapes to boot – it’s amazing how they can make […]

Recently, an unattended little wick went wild and set the living room of their Beverly Hills mansion ablaze. Whew. Fortunately, no one was badly injured and she’s […]
Clair Huxtable, the no-nonsense Cosby Show mom with a voice of reason as strong as her 80s fashion sense, always caught my attention. In a half hour, Clair (Phylicia Rashad) tended to the antics of her children, bonded with her husband, worked as a successful lawyer AND wore some spiffy outfits in the process. Now put on your […]
Eyeshadow doesn’t have to be a love or hate thing. Lots of my friends forgo wearing it altogether because they’re not sure how to make it work for them. Cream or powder? Dark or light? Other people have zero eyeshadow fear, but unfortunately end up with a Bozo the Clown look as a result. For shame! Ladies, it’s time […]
Move over, Justin Bieber and Russell Brand. The tights they often sport – dubbed “Meggings” (Men + Leggings = Meggings) — may soon be a common sight on men everywhere, from our neighbor Lou to our Uncle Wesley. Oh, boy. Word in the fashion world is that come 2013, these “Meggings” could be all the rage.
