Wear Black – Accessorize with Purple

If you LOVE PURPLE as much as I do, you want to wear it all the time. But purple is one of those colors that can be a bit tacky if overdone. Stay classy by wearing mostly black and add purple as an accent. Wear a purple scarf and jewelry or carry a tasteful bag.  Brighten up the drudgery of winter by adding a pair of rich purple gloves to a cozy black coat.

Winter Layers: Slip Dress

Slip dresses are back – right out of the 90’s and showing up everywhere.

How would you wear a slip dress?  Obviously not for the work place or a trip to the mall (unless you’re Rhianna)- more suited for a nice (very nice) evening out.  Perfect for a cocktail party or dinner and a show.

 So just what is a “slip dress”?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A slip dress is a woman’s dress that closely resembles an underslip or petticoat.[1] It is traditionally cut on the bias, with spaghetti straps.[1] Slip dresses first became widely worn in the last decade of the 20th century, as part of the underwear-as-outerwear trend, when they were made from layered chiffon, polyester satins and charmeuse, and often trimmed with lace.[2] The slip dress looked like an undergarment, but was intended to be seen, and through the use of lace and sheer elements, offer glimpses of the body beneath.[3]Designers associated with slip dresses include John Galliano, whose debut design for Dior was a lace-trimmed slip dress worn by Diana, Princess of Wales in 1996;[4] Calvin Klein and Narciso Rodriguez.[1]

Black Skinny Leggings

What could be more versatile than black leggings?

Leggings and jeggings are everywhere and for good reason. They are comfortable and they go with just about everything. Grab a t shirt or sweatshirt for a quick casual look or go all out with a nice sweater or button down shirt for a more polished statement. Add a long scarf and a cape and you are ready for your magazine shoot. Just don’t go too tight with these. Unless you have a model-thin figure you should look for leggings that have a little “hang” room.

Cropped Flares

Can you pull off the trending cropped flares?

I have to admit that I don’t quite have the figure for this look – being on the curvy side and of limited stature, this look just doesn’t do me justice. That is not to say that they don’t flatter some figure types.  Make sure to “own” this look – make it a deliberate statement and pair them with just the right heel.

Are You Ready for Fall?

Fall is upon us and those sweaters and boots are taking center stage

Not just sweaters and boots but handbags are a big statement this time of year – we need a roomy bag to hold our gloves and scarves.  Autumn is also a great time of year for weddings – who could ask for a more beautiful backdrop than autumn leaves?

Let’s look at some new arrivals and see what the designers are showcasing in fashion and gifts this season
