My Secret to A Young Looking Face

Yes, first and foremost, it’s absolutely good genes.  People have told me I looked younger than my age at every stage of my life.  It is a wonderful thing!  I know my luck with the gene pool will not last forever, and as my friend and mentor, Vivian Harris, always tells me, “Honey!  Do it before the gloss wears off.”

Fashion has always been my thing.  I have never been much of a products person.  Although, if I find a product I like, I almost never part with it.  I become a creature of habit with products, make-up and beauty supplies.  Without going into a whole new topic, I wanted to share my thoughts and hopefully some helpful tips.

It’s A Cinch!

Since we were kids we learned that we needed to put on a belt or else our pants would fall down. Right?

I’m not too sure that I have actually worn a belt to hold my pants up, however, I could think of a million other reasons to wear one. Belts come in all shapes and sizes.  There are skinny belts, wide belts, rope belts, jute belts, double belts, leather belts, chain belts, webbed belts, you name it!

Why do you think belts are so popular? Other than the obvious reasons of course. Read More

April Showers

April showers bring May flowers. That’s what “they” say…


Why let rainy days get you down when you could find rain gear that makes you happy?

So what! You’re wet
So what! When you put your flat shoes on, your pants drag
So what! Your hair is drenched and stuck to your head
So what! A cab splashed you at the corner of here and there
Let it shine! Let it shine people! Read More

Breakfast at Bloomies

Very interesting findings I must share with my readers. Those of you who know me have heard me mention “the mother ship”. That has been my reference name for Bloomingdale’s for as long as I can remember.

Instead of going off on a tangent about how fabulous I think the NYC department store is, I am going to let you in on some happenings which recently were revealed to me.

A few weeks ago I was at Lord & Taylor to preshop for one of my clients. I decided to get an early start, so I grabbed my coffee and headed to the store. Upon arrival, I found there were people gathering around the door to get in. Apparently they don’t open until 11.a.m. on Saturdays. It was kind of cold out, so the security guards let some customers wait in the vestibule. There were a few folding chairs for people to sit in at the door as well.mail-7

I couldn’t really make out what was going on, but it looked like some sort of ceremony. I sat in a chair at the door with my coffee in hand. All of a sudden five security guards appeared, looking very dapper in fine suits, with little wires hanging out of their ears. They lined up in front of the guests as if they were making a barricade. Over the loudspeaker the Pledge of Allegiance roared, and hands were on hearts as the customers faced the guards, reciting the words.mail-6
