What I Wore

Animal Print Blouse and Coral Red Pants

Last Friday, my department took me to Salute in downtown Hartford for a late birthday luncheon (my birthday was the week before).  The food was EXCELLENT and the service, impeccable.  I ordered the Shrimp Piccata which is a dish made with leeks, onions, garlic, capers and tomato in white wine, lemon and …

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I had to dig into my archives to retrieve these images but I didn’t want to miss out on the opportunity to wish everyone a happy Valentines Day. If you are single, celebrate Valentine’s Day by loving yourself.  There is nothing weird, wrong or creepy about self love.  For my …

The Choice Is Yours: Purple Crocodile

I am a little surprised at just how expensive crocodile accessories are.  Last year I came across this  New Without Tags (NWOT) faux purple-croc pouch on eBay.  I could tell that the sellers were desperate to get rid of it and to help them out, I submitted a “best offer” …

I bought this Statement necklace and matching earrings and bangle from a family friend late last year.  I love to support people with side hustles so when she turned up at our family event with her “for sale” bag, I didn’t hesitate to look.  My eyes landed on this set. …

The Choice Is Yours: Gorgeous Two-Color Suede Platform

I absolutely love these Giuseppe Zanotti two-color suede platform sandals in royal blue and mint.  They retail for $1,150.00 on the Giuseppe Zanotti site.  Here are two similar and more affordable looks for less. The color block velvet heel on the left is similar and is available on GoJane for $26.40. …

The New Dancehall Gentlemen

Don’t these guys look sharp?  These fashionable gentlemen, who are overrunning our hoods and who are being popularized and glamorized through blogs such as Street Etiquette and Dapper Lou might seem like they are having a style evolution, however, the dapper/dandy look is not new.

What I Wore: Emerald Green Pencil Dress

I choose to wear this emerald green dress today because 1) it’s keeping me on track with my goal of wearing more color (see you later navy, taupe and black); 2) because we are expecting one of the most gorgeous spring like days (the weather guy promised that it would get up into …
