Feather in my Hat. Fabulous.

Am I Angelina Jolie in Changeling? NO, but at least I can mimic her style. I love, love, love anything fabulous and feathers definitely fall under that category. As I have noted before (I am sure you remember because you memorize my blog), hats, gloves and scarves are the best way to spice up your winter look. A throwback to the early 1900′s with this classic winter hat keep you warm and stylish. Functionable fashion people! Add a brazen red lipstick, plumper included, and Maddox might just mistake you for mom. Brad not included.

Pretty Political Pearls

In light of the election, I think it is time that we all step up to the plate and rock a little Jackie O style. Because ladies, classic never fades. Whether you are Republican or Democrat, this style is an instant pick me up for anyone. Like everything I discuss, it is all about making it your own!

Personally, I was never the individual pearl strand type of gal. And if you are no Charlotte from Sex and the City either, why not choose a strand that is either long or layer them up. Classicly funky never looked so good. Pin a small broach on your pearls for a personal touch or just buy a set, like these fabulous ones, that already have your flair built right in. Jackie O, 2008.

Lovely Long Leather Gloves

This is one of the most fabulous winter accessories a lady can own. Too often not enough attention is paid to the details and that is where you can really set yourself apart. This is also the most inexpensive way to change up the foundation pieces of your wardrobe. Buy the basic, yet beautifully constructed, winter coat and add your own style through different gloves, hats and scarves. Long gloves add a sexy throwback to a time when fashion was exquisite at all times. Not to mention that they actually keep you warmer because they cover your arms! Never ask again what to do with your 3/4 length sleeves. If it is not too chilly, add them to a blazer and tuck the sleeve in. Add a scarf and poof, you are a stand-out style icon! Never forget that fun neutral colors are always the more interesting choice. This bronze ruched glove is classic, funky and stylish all at the same time. Love them.

Longer Tank Tops are your Friend


Every one of my clients owns many tank tops in neutral colors. If they didn’t own them when I got there, they certainly owned them once I left. They are one of the greatest foundation pieces any girl will ever own. You will hardly ever wear one alone, but you will layer one into your outfit almost every time!

For shorter shirts, they add length on the bottom to elongate your torso or cover up that pesky pant button. They eliminate the need for a belt to be through the loops which only adds to the probability of muffin top. Bad look. With a lace embellished tank, such as this one, you add a certain femininity to your look by having it slightly peep through. Not to mention it covers up any unnecessary cleavage!

Tank tops are the most simple way to add depth to your outfit by layering without really trying. So don’t try now ladies and go out and buy yourself a few:)

The Cape Jacket


This is the perfect jacket for this time of year! It is a fun and playful way to set yourself apart from the fashion crowd. The cape has been around forever and might be seen as much more of a classic piece, but rock it out ladies by adding your own personal spin. Choose a fabric that is bold and stands out among the other sullen looks that surround you:) I know you can’t wear a hand bag over your shoulder so it may not be the most practical, but as an evening jacket it is perfect with a clutch. And, there is no need to spend a fortune on this unforgettable piece. It is a trend that comes and goes, but will continue to come back well into your grand daughter’s high fashion days…..
