Chanel No. 666

Did you know that a vintage 80s Sony Walkman is a hot collectible and sells for a decent amount of money? Especially if the walkman is a rare color, a certain model, and in working condition. I am glad I kept one of my old walkmans. This one doesn’t have a cassette player, but the […]

OOTD: Must have Mustard!

OOTD: Must have Mustard!

Mustard can be considered one of our most ancient spices, so it is  no wonder that it has been tastefully displayed on many leading ladies of Hollywood. I must confess that my mustard obsession was reignited during a January episode of ABC’s The Bachelor show, when a beautiful lady named Selma, wore a gorgeous mustard […]

Weekend Getaway: Sedona, AZ 🌵(Part 4 of 4)

Of course, I’ve saved the best for last! Inspirational is exactly the word that comes to mind when I think of the little village called Tlaquepaque located in the heart of Sedona. Traditionally modeled after an authentic Mexican village, It’s literal meaning is “best of everything”. Tlaquepaque is truly a place filled with marvelous fountains, […]

OOTD: A Fashion Essential

I found the perfect black maxi skirt while shopping at H&M and it was love at first sight. There really isn’t much that I can’t pair with this long length number! I’ve practically been wearing it every other day (don’t fret..I do wash it often ;)) Like your favorite pair of jeans, a black maxi […]

Weekend Getaway: Sedona, AZ 🌵(Part 1 of 4)

Weekend Getaway: Sedona, AZ 🌵(Part 1 of 4)

As a child, one of my favorite pastimes was watching old western films, with the biggest fan of westerns — my beautiful mom. I remember always rooting for the good cowboy and later replaying some of the movie scenes with the neighbor boys, my brother’s toy shotgun, and a red bandana I begged for at […]

Dress Like a Lady

My grandma always gave great fashion advice. After all, she grew up in Europe at a time when women really dressed elegantly. The one piece of advice that stuck with me was to always dress like a lady no matter what the occasion. A few days ago, I was skimming through Atlantic-Pacific’s blog and came […]

Spring Fling (Part Three)

“Spring passes and one remembers one’s innocence. Summer passes and one remembers one’s exuberance. Autumn passes and one remembers one’s reverence. Winter passes and one remembers one’s perseverance.” – Yoko Ono What’s happier and daintier fashion for Spring than florals and polka dots? My third choice for a Spring outfit is by far my favorite because it’s versatile, […]

OOTD: Easy Rider

Ever since I was a teenager and watched the movie Easy Rider, I must admit I have had a penchant for motorcycles, hippie and biker chic fashion, and the open desert. What makes motorcycles so appealing to me? the thrill of riding fast, the freedom and lawlessness it entails, and the ability to wear boots […]

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 […]

OOTD: Love Pink

It’s been freezing in the Arizona desert for the last two weeks and I am so glad that we are finally back to warm, spring-like weather. I thought I was ready to move back to New York and enjoy the cold winters, but after dealing with our AZ cold spell, I am not so sure. […]
