Friday Finds: Party Shine

For those of you who are going out for New Year’s, how about adding some shine?  Sparkle just screams ‘party’ and here are a few pieces that do that tastefully.  Personally, I have a date with some old friends and we will enjoy a nice home-cooked meal, a bit of bubbly, and a warm and cozy couch.  No party gear, no wild night and no sparkle… or maybe a little bit of sparkle just for me.  Exactly how I would like to spend the last night of the year.  What are your New Year’s plans? How do you like to celebrate?

Profile of a Fashionista, Jackie Cartwright

Jackie Cartwright

My friend Jackie is one of those people who always looks great in an effortless sort of way.  She mixes high and low in a sophisticated and classic way.  She always looks put-together and her outfit always matches the occasion perfectly – never overdressed or underdressed.  I was thrilled to have the chance to ask her about her style philosophy and where she finds inspiration.  I love that she emphasizes simplicity and accessories when she talks about style.  Here are few photos of Jackie and her style picks.  I hope you find her style and fashion philosophy as inspiring as I do!

Black Friday Finds: Blackest of Blacks

For those of you that don’t know, black Friday is the busiest shopping day of the year.  True there are great deals to be had, but after 15 years of working in retail you couldn’t pay me enough money to go shopping on black Friday.  If I do decide to shop at all it will be online only.  What about you?  Will you brave the crowds and the madness to get a few good deals on your holiday gifts?  In honor of black Friday, here are my blackest of black picks of cool product right now.

Friday Finds: J Crew Style

J Crew has become one of my favorite stores to shop in. The clothing is just so wearable, fashionable and classic. It’s easy to throw together a few items to create a casual but chic outfit or to find great work apparel. Here’s what I’m loving right now:

Soft, Shimmery Shades for Fall

As much as I love black, sometimes I want something a bit softer.  Shades of cream, gold, camel and white look elegant and feminine.  Gold accessories add some oomph and take an outfit from casual to a bit more chic.  What do you think?  Do you prefer black or a softer neutral palette?
