The fine hair dilemma: Hero products

The fine hair dilemma: Hero products

After 29 long years battling with my insanely fine stick straight hair, I have spent the last year on a journey of discovery and experimentation.  I have finally found the combo of products that allow me to get the fuller bouncier wavy hair I have always envied on others. It all starts with my Alterna […]

Fashion Houston Day 3

Fashion Houston Day 3

I had so much fun attending the shows this week! I love that Houston finally has a respectable fashion week! I wore a faux leather dress, last seen here, with my Theory teal fur vest, a sequin clutch, and some black booties with gold lattice heels. CHOLE DAO I have been a fan of Dao […]

Fashion Houston Night 1

Fashion Houston Night 1

  As soon as the lineup was announced for Fashion Houston, or FH5 as it’s been dubbed this year, the Tibi show was a must see for me! I adore designer Amy Smilovic’s style and the way she approaches design.  She began her career by making clothes that she wants to wear and couldn’t find […]

It’s Event season!

It’s Event season!

It’s that time of year when holiday parties, dinners, fetes, and galas abound.  Our social calendars can easily get the best of us and our wallets. For my first party of the season, I opted to dig into the closet and see what I could scrounge up. I ended up going for a dress I […]

A Vampy look to go see Dracula!

I am really into 3/4 sleeve blazers, so I improvised by pushing my sleeves up… Has anyone else noticed Tea Leoni’s Madame Secretary wearing blazers with shorter sleeves? Loving it! I am wearing several of the wardrobe staples from my previous post (statement clutch, dark denim, cami, and gold watch). See the full post here. I […]

Secret Santa got you stumped?

Secret Santa got you stumped?

It can be hard to find time to shop for all of your girlfriends, office friends, secret-santa friends, family friends etc.  This season is always sooo hectic, and there is just SO much out there! I have so much fun picking out gifts for female friends and family… I have rounded up a few of […]

The Edit: Wardrobe Staples

The Edit: Wardrobe Staples

As much fun as it is to go out and by the latest and greatest in over-the-top fashion, the older I get, the more I gravitate toward classic well-made pieces that I can wear… and wear… and wear. I choose pieces that can be mixed and matched, styled up or down, and make any ensemble […]
