Darlings, It’s that time of year when ghosts, goblins and ghouls are scurrying about, looking for some tasty treats. With Halloween nearing and that crisp chill in the air, it gets me thinking about fashions that warm up my senses.

I want cozy coats, in rich colors, with velvety textures, and shoes and accessories in pops of color as bright as the autumn leaves. Continue Reading

Darlings, whenever I think of fall, I think of the movie When Harry Met Sally. With Harry Connick Jr.’s soundtrack in the background, New York’s Central Park and the Metropolitan Museum of Art play essential roles in setting the mood. Brilliant colored leaves, diffused afternoon lighting and Sally’s chunky sweater and tweed blazer always make me yearn for fall. Why, I can almost smell the Pumpkin Spice wafting through the chilly air. Continue Reading

Darlings, I’ve taken a new lover this summer. Oh for goodness sakes…. Pick your jaws up off the floor and take a listen! Whether day or night, my lover is always there for me, adding a touch of elegance to any event. My lover is alluring in an easy, breezy, comfortable way. My lover doesn’t care if I’ve indulged in too much guacamole and chips. My lover is very forgiving that way. Who, you ask, is this fabulous man? 

Well my dears, it’s not a man at all… It’s the Caftan!

Darlings, 1010 Park Place has been home to me for a year now! I’m so honored and grateful to the lovely Brenda Coffee for allowing this old girl to put pen to paper and express my thoughts on style and trends. As a little “thank you” to Brenda, I thought it would be fun to channel one of her favorite style icons, Rene Russo’s character, Catherine Banning, from the movie The Thomas Crown Affair.

Enough can’t be said about style icons. Goodness knows, I have several in my fashion bag of tricks. Whether it’s a fabulous movie character or a real live fashionista, a style icon can be a springboard of inspiration just when you need it.

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.

Darlings, did you watch the Oscar’s this year? I never miss, but I must tell you… I only watch it for the fashion. Those swoon worthy dresses! While I don’t have any red carpet events right now, there will be wedding invitations, galas and garden parties in the coming months. Of course with every invitation comes the anxiety about what to wear.

I think it’s high time we took a new approach to dressing up.

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.
