My Week as Marilyn

My love affair with Marilyn Monroe runs pretty deep. It has been 45 years since the death of actress, singer, showgirl, and goddess and even though I have never met her, I will always admire the screen siren. Why am I captivated by the blonde icon?  For one she is the... Read More

Sweaters to shrug off the chill

November is “fair warning” season. A premonition of winter, soon to blow flakes at our doorstep. It is the changing of the leaves that is the tip off with darkness creeping in at 4pm and the plummeting temperatures that is the harsh reality here. We all lived through it before, so... Read More

Catch the fall fashion train before it’s gone

It’s about time I put up this video about Fall trends. Better NOW than never. Even though it’s mid-November (as I write this here in NY, it’s nearing 60 degrees), we only have 40 days till Hanukah begins and 45 days till Christmas. Wow, that is really soon. Although this... Read More

Date night

You only get one chance to make a first impression. Thats what came to mind when my friend asked me what she should wear on a date. I’m not one to dole out dating advice, and figuring out what to wear on a date is never easy. (I sort of... Read More

One fabulous leather dress

I normally do not post a “Part 2” about anything (way too boring), but I’ve had many requests for a follow-up on my leather story. I was called onto post pictures of myself wearing my leather dress and how to style it correctly. Before I ever started blogging, I took... Read More

Which Celebrity Wore it best?

Halloween is a holiday that allows us to celebrate our inner sorority girl – minimal clothing, maximum makeup, full-on drama. And the celebrities are no exception. I usually do not write about nor care about celebs day to day musings, but Kate Hudson’s annual Halloween bash and the costumes that... Read More
