That Old Hollywood Glamour


This is my first review of the Jennifer Lopez collection for Kohls.  I think it really helped that I had just come off the disappointment of Missoni for Target.  Next to that, Jennifer Lopez’s new collection is like a gold mine!  Okay, not really, but at least it doesn’t look and feel like it’s cheap.  […]

Scarf Tying Tutorial

Plus bloopers!  I can’t even begin to express how nervous I am to be doing my first vlog.  Will my readers love me or hate me?  Will they laugh or will they cry?  Will they learn something or will their brains go into active comas? Let’s find out: I had to add the bloopers.  Because […]

The Holidays + A Giveaway!


The Holidays are here (whether we like it or not.)  Walk into any store and it’s guaranteed you will find something ”Holiday-ish” (and I’m not talking about Halloween!!)  This is the time that I start watching for the great deals that can be found for some of my most basic needs (i.e., return address labels & […]

Work + DVF


My husband had his “office party” and yes, the dress was business casual.  Of course, nearly everyone dresses above and beyond the basic “anything but shorts/denim” criteria.  Not to be outdone, I pulled out one of my favorite (and when I say favorite, I mean I would cry if anything happened to this dress.)  Oh yes, […]

Fashion’s Night Out, Kansas City


I talked my sister Catherine into going to Fashion’s Night Out on the Plaza in Kansas City.  Actually, I asked her about it and without hesitation she said (read: practically screamed) yes.  To be honest with you, I occasionally (read: rarely) remembered to document the evening with photos: Bo Ling’s Almond Cookies.  It’s good Chinese […]

Diet Coke Ad, Part Deux


I’m going to be perfectly honest (not that I am not always honest, lol) when I read the email that I would be featured on the Times Square billboard, I danced like a crazy woman around my living room. Jumping up and down ensued.  Any passersby may have been tempted to call an ambulance. Of […]

The Mr.


I am not sure if I’ve ever explained FBFF, so I will do so now.  It’s just a friendly community that fashion bloggers have joined on Google.  Every Friday, there is a specific topic we are invited to discuss through our blogs, and we can link our posts here.  This Friday, the topic is advice. […]

A Quickie.


I woke up on this particular day (it was a Sunday,) and really wished I could get away with wearing sweats.  The next best thing?  A cotton skirt and cotton v-neck tee. Necklace: F21 ($1.50) Top: Target (on sale through Saturday – $6) Belt: H&M Skirt: F21 Shoes: SO (via Kohls) I love these two […]
