Darlings, I can hardly believe it’s been 46 years since I went to see Led Zeppelin at Madison Square Garden. It was all about the rock shows back then and part of the fun was dressing up to see your favorite bands. With guitarist Jimmy Page as my inspiration, I remember donning a pair of hip hugger bell bottom jeans, a velvet blazer with wide lapels and a pair of sky high platform boots. Continue Reading

If you read Brenda’s Blog then you know I sometimes write about my sweet girl, Annie. When Annie was only six weeks old I drove an hour south of here to meet her. She and her mom and seven siblings had been living on the street until they were rescued and placed with a foster family. I fell for Annie right away, but she looked at me for two seconds and then ran off to play with the chickens. Two weeks later I brought Annie home, and we’ve become best friends. That was two and a half years ago.

Annie has permanent eyeliner—a smoky eye—and a gorgeous reddish-brown coat. I’m so jealous.

I’m crazy about this umbra-colored, Vince midi skirt. It’s the second piece I’ve bought that I featured on one of my Fashion Friday posts. The first piece I bought was that beautiful Zara trench coat last month. Perhaps I should write about something like bowling shoes, because since I don’t bowl, I won’t be temped to buy the shoes.    

When I bought this skirt I knew it could be the basis for lots of different outfits.

Well Darlings, it’s that time of year again. As the end of summer approaches and the weather begins to shift, I find myself reaching for those items in my closet that can easily transition into fall. I’m not quite ready for turtlenecks and plaid skirts, but somehow a caftan or sundress doesn’t feel right either. 

It’s more about trading in your summer silhouettes and brighter colors for something more subtle.

FYI, my photoshoot didn’t come together in time for this week’s Fashion Friday post, so I’m using a photo Jennifer took of me last fall. You’ll notice I was ahead of one of this year’s trends because I was wearing a belted, tweed blazer. Here’s A GREAT STYLING TRICK: Fold back the cuffs on your blazer to expose a pretty lining and/or the sleeves of your blouse.

Checkout this Fashion “Friday” post because I’m also featuring seven other bloggers. Continue Reading

🎼Chain, chain, chain…. 🎵  There won’t be any “chain of fools” this fall if you decide to layer gold link chains around your neck or wear gold, waist-cinching chain belts. Remember the chain belts from the ’80’s that were adorned with charms and coins? They’re back. In addition to gold link chain necklaces designers are hanging gems, crosses and charms from them, or they’re layering them on separate thinner chains underneath. They’re also adding long ropes of pearls and wearing them all together. Many of the pieces featured this fall remind me of my mother’s jewelry.

Lucky me. It’s back in style.

BTW I'm using these pug pics because they're adorable and it was nearly impossible to find a photo that fit my blog post's aspect ratio.

Summer is still here, but it’s that time of year when we’re starting to think about… and hope for… our first, crisp fall morning. While brick and mortar and online stores have their summer sales going, designers are tantalizing us with glimpses of their Fall 2019 trends, and I’m excited to say they’re feminine.

One of the fashion magazines is even using a term I use all the time, “elevated casual.”

Most of us aren’t tall and lean and built like a supermodel, plus if we’re over 50, we may have gained a few pounds… in all the wrong places. We may also find shopping for clothes that flatter our figure has become more difficult. If you’re nodding in agreement, take heart.  

I have some suggestions that will work together to give you the illusion of a longer, leaner silhouette.

After a sunny carefree weekend in the Hamptons I’m off to hop on the Jitney and return to the hustle and bustle of the city. Most of you know me as the “silver-haired girl on the go,” and nowhere is that truer than when I’m in the city. Even I find it to be a bit of a challenge to look pulled together when I’m going from Ubers, to the subway or walking endless city blocks in 90 degree heat. And this time of year… when the fashion powers that be throw around the term “hottest trend”… 

I want to run for the hills.
