Trend Report: Stripes

Keeping on-trend as we head into the warmer months: stripes. The pattern that gained popularity a few years ago has been reworked. Not your basic stripes now! Look for stripes with embroidered accents, stripes in unusual color palates and stripes in unexpected placement. While most prints are personal, I think stripes can appeal to everyone....

The Long and Winding Road

As we began the month of May, I can’t help but think of the 1970 iconic song by The Beatles, “The Long and Winding Road.” As we age, we realize that life is just that, no straight lines from start to finish, but a lot of twists, turns, roundabouts, and very few straightaways. As a...

My Tee-Shirt Obsession

As the weeks have sped by, being in the store daily myself, I’ve had an opportunity to reflect on all the beautiful clothes I’m surrounded with and realize along with denim; tee-shirts would positively be my second obsession. Although my tee-shirt drawers are overbrimming, I haven’t hesitated to treat myself with a few more (I...

My Love Affair…With Denim

Anyone who knows me, knows I adore my denim. During this quarantine, when you’re spending most of your time at home, you want to wear what is comfortable, cozy and feels good; for me, it’s always been jeans. I LOVE them ALL, cropped, cropped flair, skinnies, bells, stretch, and rigid, you name it, I have...

Jennifer’s Collecting Restaurant Gift Cards For Frontline Health Care Workers As we all stay home and practice social distancing, it’s a great time for reflection, and if we can all take one positive from the COVID 19 pandemic, I hope for myself and my family, it is that we don’t take ANYTHING for granted.

Spring Really IS in the Air!

…Make Lemonade! For those of us in Southwest Florida we are seeing the temperatures creep up near 90, indicating that spring has arrived. Spring brings with it so many wonderful things; warmer temperatures, flowers in bloom, a “rebirth” so to speak. In light of the current health crisis that is affecting everyone, spring just doesn’t...

Local Love

As the temperatures heat up, I feel bittersweet at the changing season. Fall brings crispness in the air and an influx of our seasonal visitors. Summer brings heat and a much slower pace. That slow pace affords me the opportunity to do something I love, run. This morning on my run, being it was recycling...

A Time to Shine

With the holiday season in full swing; shopping, baking, wrapping, gift giving, and parties, it’s speeding past like a bullet train. What could cheer you up, but your own little bit of sparkle. While sequins, lurex, lame’ and beads have traditionally been relegated to only the holidays, that has changed. Like so many fashion traditions,...

Giving Thanks

The national holiday of Thanksgiving is celebrated the 4th Thursday of November, and it’s an opportunity to gather with friends and families, share a traditional turkey dinner, and give thanks for all of our blessings. For me, November marks my anniversary month, this year beginning 36 years. I thought no time better than the present...

Sale Shopping Savvy

Since my earliest shopping experiences with my mother, sister and aunts, the sale rack has always been a point of interest! I can tell you most definitely my love for fashion and my style was passed down from my mother. As a follower of fashion trends, my mother taught me at an early age to...

Packing for an Adventure

Summer is upon us and for many it’s our time to get away, the children are out of school, and our workload is less. Who doesn’t love to travel, see new places, visit family, and just get out of the heat? Ahh, but the packing! Whether you’re traveling by plane and you have a weight...

What size do you wear?

While on an afternoon shopping trip, you may be asked by a sales associate “what size do you wear”? You may even say to yourself while shopping and looking at a particular garment, “hmm, I wonder what size I would need in this?” The answer to that proverbial question is as varied as the individual....

The Key to Looking Good

“I’ll huff and I’ll puff and I’ll blow your house down.” We are all familiar with the children’s story, The 3 Little Pigs. The only successful “little pig” that could withstand the big bad wolf had built his house out of bricks. Much like that little pig, any great wardrobe requires a good foundation. On...

The “Age” Old Question

Leafing through the latest fashion magazines, or perusing the racks of our favorite store, we often ask ourselves that dreaded question….”am I too old to wear that?” Oh come on, it’s happened to all of us and at every decade, we reevaluate ourselves and pose that question. It happened to me this past spring when...

My Love Affair with Denim

As child of the 70’s I would have to say denim is in my DNA. Growing up in Miami, I can still remember the patchwork bellbottom jeans my mother and I purchased at a “denim” specialty store; I must have been all of 13! Of course that wasn’t the only pair I got that day,...

I Love Hydrangeas

I love hydrangeas, their hearty stalks and oversized blooms; however, living in southwest Florida, you just don’t see them. Hydrangeas and our environment are not very compatible; here, we have the colorful bougainvillea. Much like fall and winter fashion isn’t quite compatible with our warm sunny days; spring fashion trends say Southwest Florida. The trends...
