Be the Lady in Red

Red! Red is memorable and it is no coincidence that this bold color represents both love for Valentine’s day and celebration during Christmas.  Friends still recall the solid red bikini I wore during my college years while memories of common floral prints fade away.  Powerful women like Hilary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi use red to covey power and patriotism.  Dare to wear red and be remembered for it. Pick up a red dress during the … Read more

Rebecca Minkoff is a Genius!

Stop embracing those clutches and sling into the new cross body bag trend!  In the era of hands free everything, I’m jubilant that hands free bags are back in.  They let me be the multitasker I need to be!  And when I say multi-task, I mean shaking a new friend’s hand and sipping on cocktails at a networking or social event. Rebecca Minkoff has mastered the art of making a clutch by calling her first … Read more

Bridal Necklace

  A friend of mine is taking the walk down the aisle in a few months.  For the occasion she picked a classic romantic dress from Priscilla of Boston on Miracle Mile in Coral Gables, Florida.  With her nuptials just around the corner, I thought I’d try to help her accessorize for the big day.  My offer to assist could be considered quite ironic however; I have never voluntarily opened a bridal magazine, and I … Read more

I was lucky enough to see the Black Swan at the Fort Lauderdale International … Read more

Drape Yourself in Velvet Immediately

George had it right when he said, “I would drape myself in velvet if it were socially acceptable!” Now that the holidays are right around the corner and it IS socially acceptable to drape yourself in velvet, I am buying up all of it. In my teens, I acquired a few velvet pieces that have stood the test of time.  I think they have lasted so long mainly because I live in Florida. The first thing … Read more
