Wardrobe Basics

I was recently asked the question, “If you were stuck on a deserted island and could only have ten pieces of clothing and three accessories, what would they be?” Wow, what a loaded question! The fact of the matter is, I don’t really have a pat answer of must haves. Everyone’s needs and tastes are completely unique. It’s truly impossible to suggest the same 10 items for all women. But wanting to be helpful, I’ve given some thought to my friend’s question and have come up with some ideas of garments in general that could be useful. However, if one [..] read more

Coats-my necessary evil!

I have to admit, I don’t really like wearing coats. Strange for Colorado, huh? I like looking at coats, but not wearing them. Luckily, contrary to popular belief around the country, there aren’t many days here in the winter that you need a heavy coat.

On Saturday, I participated in the Best Ever Holiday Extravaganza benefiting Warren Village. As my contribution to the event, I did a presentation on dressing for the holidays.

Both pieces are much cuter than they appear here. I think Ann Taylor should let me style their photo shoots!) Since shine is such a [..] read more

Where do you shop?

If you live anywhere in Colorado, and you’re updating your wardrobe for a season and want to have the very best selection of clothing, you need to visit Cherry Creek Mall or Park Meadows Mall. Forget about convenience! I live closest to Westminster mall, but they don’t have the stores I like, and because the chain stores there are considered ‘C’ stores, they have very little merchandise. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a bargain, perhaps something you’ve seen at one of the larger stores and now it’s on sale and gone, you might try one of these [..] read more
