Stripe Hype Leggings

Green in any shade we love.. and Beyond Yoga Hype Stripe Leggings will take you to walks in the park, pilates or your next jog. The material is compressive and keeps its color.. Mizuno makes the best shoes for running. My marathon friends like their style for high arches. Lightweight sweaters for fall are great for our Dallas climate. [...]

Fall Sales for Columbus Day

Well October just began and already there are sales out there for fall.  We like the fall sale that is up to 40% off coats at Saks Off Fifth…and the sales at Club Monaco and BodenUSA.   Here are a few that are good weight for your early fall chilly days…

White Leather Present

Thank you Canary Dallas for bringing in this white leather skirt. It is so very comfortable and actually lightweight. We are always looking for a silk blouse or shell and this one from Abi Ferrin (on sale) makes my day. The Akola Project has just opened its storefront in Deep Ellum in Dallas. This necklace in its grey and [...]

The Iconic White Blouse

Thank you Susan for asking about an updated white blouse.  There are many to choose from and we like them with workwear or jeans. We need a variety of them in cotton, and silk, and J. McLaughlin’s Catalina Cloth… Simple and yet elegant, there is a reason that Carolina Herrera wears them often.. Here are a few for you.

Grab the Gold

Thank you Kellley for your gift of Grab the Gold Bars. We have tried many fitness bars before, and this one has all the things we love. Oats, Peanut Butter, Chocolate, all made in a bar that tastes yummy. We like the store behind it too. With Danielle Ontiveros making the first bars in her kitchen at just 16 [...]

Navy Days

Navy is a great color for many folks.. It can be paired with brights as here, or toned down with black. Many thanks to Erin at the Jimmy Choo store in Dallas for helping me choose bright shoes for a plain dress. I would have probably just tried to match the dress, but she convinced me that pink is [...]

J. McLaughlin Dallas Attire

We are so lucky to have the J. McLaughlin store in Dallas!. Their wearable apparel is great, with both solids and prints. I love the Catalina Cloth, which is very travel friendly. Julie and Tina have both helped me shop in the Preston Center Dallas location. Their scarves have become some of my favorites.. Maybe this dress will go [...]

Wallpaper Delight

Guest bedrooms can often look rather soulless, or just end up as a dumping ground. Thank goodness, mine’s not the latter!

I’ve always read that wallpaper is a great way to add character and personality to a room. They say bold patterns and interesting finishes work well for creating great feature walls, which really help to liven up small or [...]

Deisgn with an Aiding Purpose

The designer Abi Ferrin and the organization The Akola Project are two teams that I admire. They have taken their talents and helped disadvantaged women in both Africa and Nepal. With the help of their friends in Africa and Nepal they have created beautiful clothing and jewelry. Abi’s flagship store is in West Village in Dallas, and The Akola [...]

Denim Days

This is an everyday outfit that you can wear early fall now and later with a blazer and boots. Boden USA makes many bright tops and the length of this one suits for the skinny jeans from AG (one of my favorite brands). The sunglasses are made from a company in New Orleans, Krewe du optic. Enjoy your Thursday.
