Prints for spring…

While I am sipping my coffee and watching the snow flakes outside swirling and twirling like graceful dancers, spring has made its way into my closet. How about a blouse with colorful prints? Not only do prints add character and interest to our outfits, in most cases, they also conveniently remove the need for accessories.... Continue Reading →

Romance in a Sweater

One of my grown-up wishes is to have a huge walk-in closet fashioned after Club Monaco's stores.  Crisp and clean, everything is meticulously organized according to colors and themes.  I find it simply heavenly.  Especially this time of the year, the shelves are lined with dreamy, pastel-hued items from periwinkle blue to pink.  Their cashmere...

Ferns and Flowers

I can't believe it's already March!  That only means spring is right around the corner!  Flowers and embroideries are fashionable this spring and I, for one, am quite happy even though I am more of a tomboy by nature.  Initially, I had found florals and embroideries to be a little over-the-top this season.  I have...

Rails Plaid Shirt

Nordstrom is having their winter sale and the first thing I searched for was a Rails Hunter Plaid Shirt.  I couldn't bring myself to buy one at the regular price but at 40% off, I decided to take my chance.  After some back and forth, I decided on the white/indigo/blush color. While JJ is obsessed with... Continue Reading →

Bucket Bag and Polka Dots Top

When I need to get my fashion fix, Zara is my go-to place.  It's relatively affordable for current, trendy styles so that I don't feel too guilty when my ever-fleeting fashion fixation ends.  My most recent purchase revolved around just that -  an unexplainable fascination with bucket bags and polka dots. I couldn't believe bucket... Continue Reading →

Spring Lace Tops

As Dee noted in Spring of Many Colors, I too, am totally ready for the spring. Regardless what the groundhog predicted, here are some cute white lace tops from Anthropologie, Bloomingdale's and Nordstrom that I have just added to my wardrobe for the coming spring season. Elmira Buttondown (It is available in all sizes.) This top... Continue Reading →

Something Pretty

A brand that I have come to love when it comes to shopping for a nice top is Boden.  Although it doesn’t have as many style offerings as Anthropologie, it often has a good selection of pretty tops.  I had bought a black and white floral blouse during its clearance a few weeks ago but...

Amazing Lace

My love affair with Anthropologie started years ago when I just started working.  The store, I thought, was an artwork in itself.  With its eclectic and feminine decor, I was transported into a world where all the pretty things lived.  Needless to say, I have been a frequent visitor ever since. You see, as much... Continue Reading →

They Don’t Always Work Out

One of my favorite brands, by far, is Anthropologie.  I am always in need of something casual but not without style.  I especially love their tops that always have that “extra something”.  I think the dresses they carry are beautiful but most are too formal for me. Their own brand of jeans and pants are... Continue Reading →

It’s Not A Coat!

My purse is still smarting from all the holiday shopping and the last thing I should be doing is buying something I don’t quite need.  Of course, a trip to the mall with the intention of only doing returns didn’t go according to plan.  It was impossible not to see those big sale signs.  They...
