I was recently talking with some male colleagues and during the course of the conversation it was revealed that they are more successful at being a woman than I am. Well, maybe not being a woman, exactly, but certainly in investing in themselves. (We’re talking custom tailored shirts, countless shoe options and tremendous watch collections.) When it comes to fashion, they have absolutely no trouble spending money on themselves. Wait, what?! Custom tailored shirts? Boxes of  shoes? Multiple watch styles? OOPH. It’s just not right. When it comes to wardrobe, I’ve always been the kind of gal that just gets by. I…

I’ve always been a little curious about the people who live in the Hamptons. Their lifestyle seems so… over the top. I mean, who has that kind of money, anyway? Why,  the Grayson family, of course. If you understand that reference then you must be a Revenge fan. Oh how I love that show. Lavish lifestyles, beautiful fashion, deception, intrigue, drama… I’m definitely a  fan. I was elated to recently discover that there is actually an exclusive jewelry collection inspired by show created by Helzberg Diamonds. Appropriately, the jewelry line is titled the INFINITY X INFINITY collection. Also appropriately it has diamonds. Because it must.…

I have, quite accidentally, stumbled upon the perfect summer dress. The High Shore Wrap dress by Fresh Produce. So versatile that I was able to wear it successfully to three very different functions – dinner at very upscale restaurant with colleagues, a blogger book party and a in industry function/awards social. It worked beautifully no matter the occasion or accessories. As flattering as it is wearable, the dress  is incredibly stylish yet it still feels similar to wearing pajamas. (Seriously. It is the most comfortable dress I own, sans my other Fresh Produce dresses.) The faux wrap is adjustable and ties for…

Jeggings are the new “it” thing for fall, ladies. I keep reading about them. They are everywhere.  I am even featuring them as a look for Back-To-School fashion in Frederick Magazine. As I was researching them the other day I got to thinking that, well, that they were stupid. At least for my body type. Which, by the way, is a REGULAR, real-woman body.  (Translation: I have HIPS.) Asking me to wear jeggings conjures up all sorts of images in my brain.  Mostly of being stuffed in a sausage. Or my saddlebags sticking out.  YIKES! The saleswoman at the local…

I love the Boho-Chic look.  I just think it is one of the coolest looks around. Don’t you? Boho-chic fashion combines all of the fun bohemian and hippie influences made popular in the past couple of years by likes of Sienna Miller, Kate Moss, Nicole Richie and the Olsen sisters. One thing all of these ladies have in common?  (Besides oodles of cash?) STICK THIN.  Which I am not.  Ahh, there is the rub.  I’m a pear shape, which does not translate well into many of the garment’s designed with these celebrities in mind. So, if you are like moi,…
