Except for the last few years, when I was making monthly trips to New York City, my wardrobe has always included color. Those trips—along with the chic women I met and the stores on Madison Avenue—influenced me, so I’ve added a lot of black to my wardrobe. While black is classic, easy and versatile to wear, I’ve been craving color. I’ve also discovered black lends itself to summer dressing.

I’m crazy about this week’s outfit and can’t wait to wear it everywhere.

Regardless of where you live, summer should be about cool, easy dressing with clothes that make life seem effortless. I’m in South Texas where even Annie and Lulu have turned up their noses at the great outdoors unless they’re in the shade, looking for Mr. Lizard or snacking on the jasmine, growing up my trellis. And me?

If I’m going out in this heat, I want something that’s not too tight, allows the air to circulate around me and is still fashionable.

Is it possible to transform your wardrobe with just one item? Yes, absolutely!

All it takes is one pair of animal print shoes.

Darlings, it’s the question everyone’s been asking all week. “Did you watch the Royal Wedding?” Oh it was pure magic! Your’s truly was left off the guest list. My arrival would have caused quite a stir and rendered the attendees gobsmacked! You see, back in the mid 70’s, Prince Charles and I had quite a romp in Windsor Castle.

Let’s just say, Camilla must be a very happy woman.

Because I wore blue jeans so much of the time, my mother predicted I would die in a pair, and for much of my life, she would have been right. During my 20’s and 30’s I was a “blue jean baby,” wearing Levi’s, straight leg blue jeans with an off the shoulder, white blouse, high heels and BIG hair… my husband’s shirt tied at the waist, collar up, cuffs turned back and black ballet slippers… a black, Danskin leotard and Calvin Klein espadrilles, or a Gap t-shirt, cool belt and cowboy boots. I also wore bell bottom jeans with a fitted, black leather jacket, a white poet’s blouse and a wide, silver cuff bracelet. Now I’m craving dresses and skirts that are feminine and easy to dress up or down. 

My mother would have been so pleased.

Pink is one of the most popular colors for 2018, and it seems to have resonated with women of all ages. Some women are wearing pink with red… Remember when we were told that was a no-no?

Other than a hot pink bathing suit I bought in my 40’s, this may be the only other pink item of clothing I’ve ever bought. Surprise! I like it.

This is the second Rebecca Taylor piece I’ve bought this year. Vogue magazine says “Rebecca Taylor designs sweet, pretty clothes for the girl who loves ruffles, William Morris florals and pouf sleeves.” That is so not me! I’ve always been a tailored minimalist, but as my style continues to evolve—which is way more fun than I could have imagined—I find myself drawn to a number of Rebecca Taylor’s designs. 

Like this cotton sateen, smocked skirt and matching top.

If you want to take the yawn out of your everyday, wear stripes. Stripes add interest and dimension. They are seasonless and effortlessly chic. I’m drawn to stripes because I love the way they instantly elevate any look. Stripes are one of the workhorses in my closet, because I can always count on them when I’m in a rush to find something stylish. Continue Reading

Darlings, I’ve officially waved goodbye and said “good riddance” to the cold weather and welcomed—with a toast of chardonnay—the arrival of spring. Oh the places to go and the things to do! I’ve packed up my heavy dark knits and down coats, and I’m ready to take a light, bright approach to spring. Continue Reading

FABIANA FILIPPI SPRING, 2018, LOOKBOOK
pin it

I confess; I love clothes. I love to shop for clothes, and look at clothes, and pictures of clothes. I love to dream up different ways to wear the clothes I already own, or find ways to update a dress or a suit I’ve had in my closet for years. Sometimes I shop for one new piece, a tee shirt, a scarf, or something that will transform an old outfit I love, but which is starting to look dated, into one that is modern and current. But to do that I need inspiration.

It’s easy in this visual world of ours to find inspiration that costs nothing: on blogs, or Pinterest boards, or on websites which sell designer fashion.
