A little sparkle goes a long way, at least in the case of lingerie designer Taryn Winters, whose sequin bra design (see image at bottom of this post) caught my attention and stopped me in my tracks while scrolling through Instagram. I love when discoveries like this happen! Granted, just because Taryn Winters is new to me, does not mean she’s a new discovery to Ellen Lewis, who had the pleasure of seeing the brand in person at this past Summer’s Lingerie Selection. Fairly new to the lingerie scene, Taryn Winters is a New York designer whose work is heavily influenced by the world of ballet costumes and her background as a dancer. A graduate of Fashion Institute of Technology Winters has developed a unique style that is distinguished by … Read more

I hadn’t contemplated becoming a pajama person until this past summer, when I found myself chasing down a neighbor’s gigantic bulldog (complete with post-vet neck cone) in my front garden while wearing nothing more than a slightly sheer vintage slip. Since I work from home, I often find myself not getting dressed until it’s required to leave my house. However, now that I live in a busy neighborhood, a lot more people see my clothes during the day than they used to.

I didn’t think I was going to start getting dressed while I worked, but it did seem like time to upgrade to some socially appropriate loungewear … Read more

The Little Black Dress, made famous by Coco Chanel when she introduced it in Vogue in 1926, has endured because it is an icon of good taste. This ubiquitous style has served for almost a century as a wardrobe staple that a woman can dress up or dress down. A symbol of understated elegance accessible at many income levels has positioned it as a classic fashion necessity. Personally, I have owned some version of the “LBD” for as long as I can remember, wearing it to work, to dinner, to casual parties and even to weddings. Capturing the mood with accessories is the secret and let’s face it, black is both chic and seductive. In fact, I even have one here in Mexico which, in the 5 years I have lived here, … Read more

“I would go out but I haven’t got a stitch to wear” is a line from one of my favorite songs by Morrissey of The Smiths, one of my favorite singers and if you come to my home for a party you will undoubtedly hear it. If you are the hostess, what to wear is always a dilemma.
First things first, as the hostess you are the centerpiece, what you wear, or don’t wear is key to how comfortable your guests are. Your wardrobe signals “it’s okay to stay and party all night” or “I plan to be in bed by midnight, dishes done, so don’t get too comfy”. Your choice of garment also lets everyone know that you are “getting your hands dirty” and will address their every whim … Read more
