I continue to be attracted to one thing: all things red. I love red more than air. It makes me happy sassy. So if you’ve been a bad girl, steal Santa’s wallet and go buy yourself at least one of the items below. And if you’ve been a good girl, shame on you. Feed your […]

Where to Get Your Holiday or NYE Dress

[ 0 ] November 15, 2012

Going into Watercolors High Fashion in Zona Rosa was like entering the Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory for eye candy for women.

[ 0 ] April 6, 2012

Purses are an accessory we too often grab and go. But purses deserve just as much scrutiny and attention as buying a pair of great jeans or shoes.  Think Scale Rule of thumb: think scale. Purses come in all shapes and sizes just like our bodies. Pay attention to where the bottom of the bag […]

If you’re holding on to clothing that is too old, too tattered, faded, tight, loose, wrong color, or the wrong style, be a good girl and let go. What does ‘letting go’ really mean? It’s the apprehensive and sometimes dreadful six […]

Give Yourself the Boot

Stylish mannequins posing in window displays sport boot trends from over-the-knee and knee-high boots to the 70s stacked heel boot, ankle boots and slouchy boot.
