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 Ultimate Raincoat


I am sitting here on this crappy day in New York City and what better to talk about then raincoats. There is no need to look unhappy just because you feel unhappy! Stylish and rain are two words that can go together!

The first order of business is functionality. Looking cute and being soaking wet are not part of the stylish plan. You need to first make sure that the jacket is either water resistant or waterproof. Just because it looks like a raincoat doesn’t always mean that it is. Next up, style. Black is the most likely choice, but think outside of the box. Have I taught you nothing?!? Choose a neutral color such as brown, eggplant or even ruby red. The raincoat should also have some shape as you should not get lost behind your rain gear ever! Add a cute umbrella and sleek rainboots and you will be the cutest dry person on the block!

The Perfect Shades

We are on all the quest to find the perfect pair of sunglasses…. Or maybe the perfect ten pairs:) For every item I love to have my “no fail” brand. For sunglasses, it is Ray Ban. The quality, price-points and styles make it easy to choose one that works for you.

The aviator style may be made for the Top Gun part of the world, but apparently many of us fly planes, myself included. I have owned my aviators for years and when a friend, male or female, has forgotten their shades, it is my Ray Ban aviators to the rescue. This style literally works on everyone if you pick the right color and size. Smaller frames for smaller faces and bigger frames for bigger faces. We can all be Maverick.

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…..
