OOTD: How to Wear Striped Maxi Dresses (Part One)

A wise woman (my mother) always said to flaunt my assets, but to be careful and pick only one to show off at a time. Maybe this is why I love maxi dresses so much. They allow me to do just that, and this black and white, multi stripe Calvin Klein creation, here, is quickly becoming my […]

OOTD: Doggie Style

Haha, still laughing over the title, but I just couldn’t help myself (wink wink). This post is inspired by the littlest guy in my life — my 10 year old toy chihuahua named Rambo, after my husband’s favorite movie (rolling eyes). Rambo has a nickname, he melts and does a special dance for me when […]

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, […]

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 […]

Man Candy: ♥♡♥ Boxers or Briefs? ♡♥♡

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: Confessions of a true Maxxinista

My TJ Maxx love affair begun over 15 years ago, when a new store opened up close to my home, in College Point, NY. Even though I now live on the other side of the US, I am still a bargain huntress and a TJ Maxx super fan … big stores, huge variety of products and […]

Targeting the Flue with Prabal Gurung

Inspired by the nightly news, my poor aching head, red nose, and used Kleenex tissues, sprawled across my bed, I’ve decided that the new trend for this season (in my bedroom, neighborhood, city and state) is the flue. Isn’t citrus a perfect cure for the flue? Well, you better watch out Mr. Flue, you obviously […]

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 […]

Keep Calm and Work Out

I love finding fashionably fun tops and bottoms to exercise in, since most workout clothes look pretty much the same..boring. person10 is an etsy shop I discovered which sells the cutest and, best of all, eco-friendly tank tops. The workout tops come in different colors and you can choose from several motivational sayings – which is […]

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, […]

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 […]

Saturday Man Candy

This weekend’s man candy edition is dedicated to your non-celebrity, everyday man. Meet my husband, aka Steve Lengua.  Okay ladies and gents, he may not be the most fashionable man that I know in the GQ sense of the word.  Steve’s idea of clothes shopping involves buying one t-shirt at Target in every possible color. However, […]

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 […]

Santa Baby…

In case you are making a list, here are a few pretty things I need in my “fashionable” life.  This Christmas, I am wishing in shades of blue. What color are you wishing for? 1. LC Lauren Conrad Heart Sweater 2. Vintage Styled Flower Ring 3. Stella and Dot Scarf 4. Society6 – Karen Cox […]

Black Friday at Midnight

Last night I took a trip to Scottsdale Fashion Square for the midnight madness sale. This is something I promised myself I would never do – succumb to the mass shopping mentality of Black Friday. My mom, an addict to any sale, wanted to check out the Macy’s deals, so I thought “What the heck..I […]
