If you’re on Instagram then more than likely you already know style icon, Hildie Plumpepper, the silver-haired gal on the go. In many ways Hildie is every woman. She wears things the rest of us would love to wear; can’t afford to wear or have the guts to wear. On Instagram, Hildie Plumpepper is a sensation. We’re familiar with her joie de vivre; the designers she knows; the women who inspire her—and she inspires—and we love her sense of adventure and fun ways of dressing.

Darlings, I’m so excited to meet you all here. I’m now a fashion blogger on 1010ParkPlace with my own monthly column! I do hope you’ll stop by and say hello!

Well, my Fashionable Friends… It’s that time of year again. We all want to catch every bit of delightful weather we possibly can, so let’s get our picnic game on! Whether your basket is filled with a deelish assortment of delectables from Dean and Deluca, Whole Foods, or perhaps a basket full of Rosé, Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio… like mine, it’s an outdoor celebration!

One must look effortless and fab when picnicking. I say, why not wear the gingham instead of just having it as your tablecloth?

A month ago a friend sent me a day cream and a night cream, I’d never heard of, and asked if I would try them and give her my honest opinion. Because she built one of the most iconic beauty and fragrance brands in the world, she peaked my interest.

After two weeks, I started calling these bottles of Simply Venom™ my “magic creams.”

It’s almost as though the hot summer fashions have turned the clock back to 1958. Think Sandra Dee movies like Gidget, the all American girl in crop tops and capri pants and A Summer Place, where Troy Donahue gets her “in trouble.” Sandra Dee movies were a bridge from the innocent good girls, to the good girls interested in sex who joined the ’60’s sexual revolution.

Me in my High School prom dress. The dress was fine... but the hair!

For most of my adult life I’ve either been a business suit kind of girl—tailored and simple, yet straight out of Vogue. I wanted to be Lauren Hutton in the 70s—or I’ve lived in blue jeans and heels. As I’ve gotten older, my fashion sense about hair, makeup and shoes has changed. Continue Reading

PUBLIC RELATIONS MANAGER, NEIMAN MARCUS SAN ANTONIO

By Brenda Coffee photographer Jennifer Denton

Xitlalt Herrera-Salazar is never trendy. Instead she is a study in chic without trying, understanding just the right length for a pair of wide-legged, cropped pants to mix with a classic silk blouse. Xitlalt (Sic-lali) is one of the most stylish women you will ever meet, and it’s not because she’s Public Relations Manager for Neiman Marcus. Style is in her DNA. Like her mother and her grandmother, Xitlalt is more than beautiful and well-dressed. She has a caring heart and a genuine compassion and sincerity that’s been passed down from both sides of her family.

“Giving back and treating people with kindness and respect is very important to me.” Continue Reading

What is it about an all white look I love so much? It’s simple and chic. It’s effortless and fresh. It just feels like summer, doesn’t it? And everyone looks good in white.

It has a way of lighting up your face and making your skin glow.

Today you can wear white all year long, but it’s surprising how many people still don’t before Memorial Day. This idea started back in the 1930’s when the “well-to-do” would only wear white in the summertime. Back then, white clothing symbolized a life of leisure. Now this rule is out the window! After my daughter read this post, she said, “What? I never knew there was a style rule about not wearing white before Memorial day?”

Hope everyone’s having a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend! I just returned from New York City where it seemed as though every third woman oohed and aahed over my Julie Vos stacked bracelets, including the woman at the hotel checkin desk who went “gaga;” the woman at the next dinner table who wouldn’t let go of my arm; a fellow shopper at Barney’s and a friend I met for lunch.

By the way, Julie Vos is having a Memorial Day Sale this weekend!

This week I caught up with glamorous gal about NYC, Lauren Ezersky. Lauren’s in L’Oréal’s new classic Voluminous Mascara campaign on television, print and online. She appears with Diane Keaton, Deborah Harry, Julianne Moore, models Barbara Palvin, Soo Joo Park, transgender model, Hari Nef and a host of other cool ladies. Once again, L’Oréal hit a home run by featuring “fresh, creative, confident women who are iconic in their own right.”

In a press release L’Oréal said, “We are excited to bring together trailblazing individuals in celebration of the mascara women have loved for over 25 years… we want to encourage everyone to embrace their originality, take chances and make a statement.”
