How To Look Expensive With One-Tone Dressing

By | August 13th, 2017|Categories: , , , , , , , , , , |Tags: , , , |

Tina, here. It's so easy I can't stop dressing like this. I pick one color (or non-color like white) and wear all different shades in that range. So take white; I'll wear ivory, pearl, ecru, etc. all together. It seems this way of one-tone dressing has really caught on. It's chic and it looks expensive. [...]

A Treasure Trove Of Fall Blouses and How To Wear Them With Style

By | August 9th, 2017|Categories: , , , , , , |Tags: , , , |

Tina, here. I have this tendency to dress like an old lady (an outdated term for sure and I'm using it tongue-in-cheek because last I checked there really are no "old ladies" around, just older women whose lives carry more memories than ours). This means I love twin sets, matching gloves and pumps, lady bags [...]

Tina, here. Ahhhh. Fall Fashion. Beautiful words. If you've been in any of the big box stores lately (Michael's, TJ's, Target, etc), you've already spotted Hallowe'en decorations. Egads. But the truth is, fall is upon us. And there is something new that's winning in fall fashion I've noticed. Pink. Orange. P'orange. Yes, pink is in [...]

Tina, here. Back To School is for everyone now. Not just the kids. I get giddy this time of year. It's more than just the change of seasons, which I anticipate like a child waiting for Christmas. It's something about the smell of books and the band practicing in the schoolyard, new shoes and the [...]

Tina, here. Wedding invitation arrives. Fear sets in. Maybe it's a church ceremony, on a beach or in a backyard. (Are these lovebirds crazy? Yes. But we, sweating in the summer heat, love them and forgive their youthful plunge into matrimony in such a hot and humid month.) What do I wear? is all you [...]

Tina, here. My addiction to white clothes shows no signs of abating. If I'm not wearing white, I'm wearing something that suggests white like ivory or champagne or sometimes I get crazy and venture into shades of blush or camel. But I always come back to my first love, white. I love love love pairing [...]

Tina, here. I haven't seen an ocean since I don't know when. Oh, wait. Last February. So I'm not so deprived after all! But still, I believe you need to see the ocean at least once a year not to go crazy. I'm bordering on needing it twice a year to stay sane. We all [...]

Tina, here. Remember the sunscreen graduation speech that Kurt Vonnegut didn't deliver? But it still became one of the most famous "graduation speeches", and has been credited to everyone from Oprah to Ellen. I sure quote it to my nieces and nephews every chance I get. Wear sunscreen. I'm not a paid sponsor for CeraVe [...]

Tina, here. I went 2 months last winter without going to the grocery store. I had my food delivered, not by a fancy food or meal delivery company, but by Amazon. If I hadn't ordered fresh fruits and veggies every time I ate out (which was a lot), I probably would have gotten jaundice or [...]

Tina, here. I've been hunting and gathering t-shirt dresses for the past couple of summers. Don't you love clothes that don't touch you?

Tina, here. Aren't teeny things the cutest? Like miniature perfume bottles, and little bitty stuffed animals, itty bitty baby feet and teensy weensy dollhouse furniture? I just find tiny things adorable. Which explains my fascination with travel-size toiletries. If you're getting ready to pack for a trip, one of the best ways to avoid checking [...]

Never Wear This To Work (Interns, Please Hear Us) + Capsule Work Wardrobe

Tina, here. There is a real problem in the workforce. Human Resources is at its wit's end. That's why they call us in to help, to address the rather uncomfortable situation of what to wear to work, or more awkwardly, what not to wear. Ripped jeans have no place in the workplace, IMHO. If your [...]
