The New JCP

February 7, 2021

So lately I’ve been seeing a lot of commercials for the “new” JCP. But they were kind of confusing. Like, were they not ever having a sale again? Were they becoming a bargain basement retailer? I couldn’t figure it out. And the commercials were really no help at all. Then I opened today’s newspaper and [...]

The Wonders of a Red Wallet

February 3, 2021

This is going to sound crazy. I just bought a new red wallet (on a great sale at Kate Spade!) and on buying it I thought WOW THAT’S RED. But I felt compelled to buy it, not because it’s Kate Spade and not even because it was on super sale. I just had to have [...]

In the midst of this winter greyness, it’s refreshing to see bright spring dresses at Target. I was just looking at the Jason Wu line at Target - Woot! Yes, Jason Wu, who shot to stardom after dressing the First Lady for the Inaugural Ball has a Target line. I love how a designer is [...]

Fashion Up: Get Your Sunglasses On

This just in from the fashion people: color, color, color. Have you seen the new neon? It’s everywhere. Pink. Green. Orange. Just SCREAMING AT YOU. Peruse J Crew‘s new arrivals and, if you’re my age, you’ll start singing the Thompson Twins or Spandau Ballet what for all the 80s influence. At least color wise. That [...]

Beauty Quick Fixes

January 19, 2021

By now we’ve probably all heard about dry shampoo and the minutes it saves us when we are looking a little more greasy than glam, but did you know about the off-label genius of baby wipes, your hair iron or a sharpie? Neither did I. Of course, I do know that baby wipes are amazing [...]

Golden Globe Fashion Trend Alert

January 18, 2021

In a word: glamorous. But since ‘glamor’ and ‘mom’ usually are mutually exclusive, that’s not what I’m talking about. I know, I know, all moms can be (and should be!) considered glamorous just by being us. Right? Right? Whatever. The real world knows differently. But, one of the cool things we can take home after [...]

Home Gawking, J. Crew Style

January 18, 2021

Ahh, the one that got away. Gorgeous home, with a backyard. Simple, elegant, all done in neutrals with pops of color. Unfortunately, I’ve found it AFTER it’s been snapped up by some lucky buyer. Oh, and I don’t live in New York. Oh, AND, I don’t have $3.75 million. But still…it feels like the house [...]

Scarf Tying Made Simple

January 11, 2021

I heart scarves. It has taken me living in San Francisco for a decade - on and off - to learn how to tie a scarf, what with all the cold foggy days here. And it’s not that I do it properly or anything. Mine is always a little pulled together, a little messy. Much [...]

I just happened to stumble on something pretty amazing: L’Occitane’s Immortelle Divine Cream. Let me just say that I’m enamored with all [...]

December 23, 2020

In case you need a little push in the holiday cheer direction, I just found out about Slacker’s updated holiday stations. Slacker is a cool service that lets you listen to a myriad of Internet radio stations. I like the classics, so I’ve been listening to Burl and Bing. But the R&B Christmas station is [...]

No Time For Holiday Cards? Text with Zlango

December 19, 2020

That’s right. Channel your inner teen and text your heart away. You can even add fun/crazy/glam icons thanks to Zlango. Of course, if you actually were a teen, you’d already know about texting with attitude and icons and all that. You would have learned it by osmosis and be able to magically have your thoughts [...]
