The bionic woman 24 hours after double hip replacement

I am on the way to visit Shirley, who is my friend and business partner while she convalesces from double hip surgery at her home in New Hampshire.  Shirley is a real trooper and was quite sure she would be back in the saddle 6 minutes after she returned home from the hospital, but I knew better.  She needs some TLC, … Read More


Simply Class ~ DKNY

Working full time and raising three kids was no walk in the park.  To maintain some semblance of serenity and focus, something had to give.  Spending time on the logistics of a wardrobe was not an option.   But I was enmeshed in the fashion world and I needed to appear “pulled together” no matter what other diversions were orbiting my daily life.  My solution was simple; elegant white shirts from … Read More


Impressionism-fashion-bI was finally able to see the acclaimed exhibit, “Impressionism, Fashion and Modernity” at the Metropolitan Museum of Art this week-end.  I made it just under the wire: the show closed on Memorial Day.  It was worth the effort though, because this was a display of paintings from some of history’s most renowned artists highlighted from a very interesting and innovative perspective.

That’s another story.  I found the perfect camouflage in the market last week at The Nightwear Network showroom from the hot LA based brand, Cover UP by VP.  Twelve dynamic prints in nine easy … Read More


I am not much of a TV watcher, but once in a while I find myself totally absorbed in a series that manages to capture my imagination.  I usually wait a season or two for positive buzz and then I settle into Netflix, commercial free and non-stop. My most recent obsession is the highly acclaimed “Revenge”.  The story contradicts everything I believe.  It is a testimony to over-indulgence, payback … Read More


Whimsy Chic ~ Kensie

I am always looking for the unexpected, that special something that peeks through the mundane and catches my eye.  I call it street fashion, the take no prisoners personality that defines charisma.  When it’s personal, intimate and just the right amount of flirty, than the dynamic is irresistible.  There are so many girls searching for affordable feel good lingerie.  I walked into the Kensie showroom a few weeks ago … Read More
