With spring just around the corner, this fashionista is more than ready to pack up the wool sweaters, down-filled jackets, and yes, the Cuddl Duds. Just thinking about warmer weather makes me want to open the champagne and celebrate!
Truthfully the task of transitioning my closets from a winter wardrobe to spring throws me into a fashion panic.
Darlings, I don’t know about you, but, when I come home from a cold winter day, I want to wrap myself in warmth and relax with the things that make me happy. At home I’m not so worried about being fashionably stylish. I want to feel contentment and comfort. I want to sit by a crackling fire, enjoy a warm beverage and let the day’s craziness drift away.
The Danish even have a word for just that feeling: Hygge, pronounced “Hue-gah,” the art of creating joy and coziness in life’s everyday moments.
Darlings, By the time I’ve iced the last gingerbread cookie, wrapped the last gift and signed my last greeting card, I’m cooked! I have what’s called “holiday fatigue.” It’s that exhausted feeling you get this time of year when even Bing Crosby’s “Mele Kalikimaka” can’t revive you. Of course I still have holiday parties to attend, and the last thing I want to do is figure out what I’m going to wear!
I have a solution that will have you feeling comfy and looking sensational.
Well my fellow fashionistas, I am bound and determined not to let the holiday frenzy get to me or my wardrobe. I want an easy look that’s put together and fab. A look that goes from running around town to lunch with the girls.
Lately we’ve been talking a lot about the way American women dress as opposed to our European counterparts. European women have always dressed in a way that’s luxe without being too precious, but effortlessly chic. It got me thinking… What is an American style that’s uniquely ours?
I always think of Ralph Lauren when I think of American style.
Darlings! What a glorious fall we’re having! My favorite time of year! How I adore the trees changing color, that chill in the air, the crunch of leaves under your feet, apple cider donuts and a pumpkin spice something or other for sale in every shop. Hmmm, is there a pumpkin spice wine? I must look into that.
Well my fashionable friends, let’s talk about some of the best trends we’re seeing this fall.
Everyone has a favorite classic rock song that pops up on the radio and transports you to your younger days. Mine is “Gimme Shelter” by The Rolling Stones. Those were heady times Darlings! What fun we had! Mick and those lips! Let’s leave that one for another time, shall we? Continue Reading
Darlings! Oh how I adore an evening at the beach, sipping prosecco and sitting around a bonfire with friends. Those chilly summer nights have me pondering that fashion dilemma we all face: how to make a smooth transition into fall. Continue Reading
Darlings, I’m delighted to see you all here again! Well, my Fashionable Friends… The summer festivities are upon us, and there are so many opportunities to dress things up a bit. Whether you’re off to Saratoga for the horse races, the Hamptons for a polo match, or a cocktail party on the lawn, one must celebrate the occasion! I say, why not try something new?
Toss out your tried and true cropped pants and your go-to summer top. Yes you can wear that gorgeous barely there sundress. It’s simply a matter of making it wearable.
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.
“But darlings… Did you know I’m now a fashion blogger on 1010ParkPlace with my own monthly column?”
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?
