OOTD: In My Daughter’s Closet >=)

Woke up in the morning, stood barefoot before my closet for a long time, shaking my head in a terrifying realization … gasp … I had nothing to wear! So, very discreetly, I tipi toe down the hall, to my teenage daughter’s bedroom, and I promise I never do this, innocently peek at her closet, […]

Saturday Man Candy: Sparkling Marc Jacobs

Ladies, we know you’ve seen this everywhere — the word is out (and so is the hot and steamy Diet Coke commercial) that a man who’s life has been decorated with numerous awards, due to his designer collections of amazing shoes, watches, perfumes and handbags, has recently been named Creative Director of the Diet Coke’s […]

Stop Staring! 40’s Inspired Fashion

Today’s post is inspired by women’s retro dresses and my love of the 1940’s era when Rita Hayworth, Betty Grable, Ava Gardner and Susan Hayward ruled the Silver Screen, while most women imitated them, wearing simple, formfitting outfits with matching hats/snoods and gloves. And those hairstyles … to die for! One of my favorite online […]

Celebrate Valentine’s Day with some eye candy this year! With Valentine’s Day around the corner, we just couldn’t resist doing a feature on men’s Valentine’s fashion 😉 … For ages now, men have been buying women flowers, chocolates, and, of course, sexy lingerie. What do we buy them? Cologne, a new Wallet, a Watch, Cigars, […]

OOTD: Talk Nerdy to Me

Most of you won’t remember the days when Buddy Holly ruled the charts, but you might recall his trademark thick framed nerdy glasses. When I think of the “nerdy look”, Buddy Holly, or Steve Urkel fit the bill perfectly. I’ve always thought That’ll Be The Day when those glasses make a come back, however Hollywood […]

OOTD: Stripes and Polka Dots

Happy Monday Fabulostas!  Although Mondays are often dreaded, they don’t have to be boring. I needed something loud to seduce myself back into work mode, and came across these fun Kardashian Kollection shoes I’ve stashed in the back of my closet. Lucky me. I taught it would be fun to pair these shoes with something […]

In the Closet

Happy New Year and Happy Thursday everyone! In lieu of the New Year, I thought I’d write about my secretly wishful resolution (if one can call it that). A girl can dream, can’t she … *sigh* I used to think that you’d have to be a famous Hollywood (or New Jersey) Housewife to own a […]

Sears … Seriously?

Sears. “Great fashion at great prices”. Seriously? How many of you have seen this latest Sears commercial and felt a sudden urge to shop there? Unless I’m in the market for a new appliance or it’s Fathers day and I’m tool shopping, I never step foot inside the Sears department store. After seeing this ad, […]

OOTD: A Leopard Skirt

What is it about leopard print that makes it so appealing? Diane von Furstenberg, one of my all-time favorite designers, has been quoted as saying: “nothing is more feminine and flattering than a leopard print.” The designer actually says she considers leopard a neutral (gotta love that!). When I’m in need of some extra sexiness in my […]

A Closet Tale

Do you ever stand in front of your closet and think: I must have this dilemma at least twice a week! Yesterday morning the “nothing to wear” panic set in something fierce.  Obviously, this called for a babysitter, and a shopping trip.  I was particularly in need of a holiday party dress, since last year’s […]

My Tar-shay Confession

At the risk of sounding prudish, the Target Store is where I shop for my groceries.  Long gone are the days when I used to buy soft “Cherokee” and “Circo” brand adorable baby clothes.  As my kids have gotten older, they’ve outgrown Target. What attracted me to their clothing department last week was a unique […]

DIY: Skinny Jeans!

I’ve been following a cool DIY blog called “Wobisobi” written by a lady named Anne.  Her DIY projects range from upcycling clothing and making new designs out of the old to making her own jewelry.  Her blog has given me ideas on how to make reuse of clothing from my own closet.  I don’t consider […]
