Here Fishy Fishy

James Perse you master of all things knit! Adoring the new blue and the earthy tones you always do so well.
But me thinks the fisherman’s knit is THE piece to help squeeze the last few days of old man winter out of the wardrobe.
Layer with a long sleever now and then switch to a tank or cami once Spring has sprung!



When packing for a vacation – especially with all the limitations now imposed by airlines about baggage – one question that helps make the right decision regarding the outfits you bring is,

“WWDP?  What would Diane Von Furstenberg pack?”

If you can’t roll it in a ball, then pull it out, put it on and get compliments from your man, don’t pack it!


Beach Babies & their gear!

Long gone are the carefree days of carrying a cute little carry-all to the beach, like the one from Pucci in the second pic, rather it is now a workout similar to bootcamp to get everyone and everything to the beach.


The good news is that beach days are WAY more fun with little people giggling, splashing and playing, while the adults attempt to remain somewhat fashion conscious in their swimwear, sunglasses and the tunes blaring from their iPhone/Jawbone combo.


Hey Stella!

I think I might know where Stella McCartney got the inspiration for her FAB Spring 2012 line….

If you don’t want to go on vacation, take an amazing ocean & palm tree pic, go home and screen it on a silk shirt, you can just take a little trip over to Net-a-Porter!


Orange U Glad?

Orange you glad the winter blah colors aka brown, black, and grey, are now history and the brights are punching into our world in a big, loud, amazingly fun, vibrant way?!

Michael Kors hot pink, Missoni rainbow everything, DVF neons, Burberry greens, Gucci navy, Dolce and Gabbana reds, love love love!!!!!!!!





Never Underestimate…

the power of a great sarong!

Obviously and always, a beach cover up, but a great sarong offers a versatile option in a pinch for a skirt, a towel (dries SO much faster than an actual terry cloth towel so as to forever avoid soggy bum), scarf for your hair, shade item draped over a palm tree (sigh), the wrappiest of all wrap dresses, and if unfortunate enough to have gotten a little sunburnt, a sarong can be a very understanding garment.  One last attribute not to be left out…a great sarong allows for strategic positioning along the waistline after  a few children.
