Eva Mendes Collection

Eva Mendes’s most recent collection for NY & Company is all that you would expect from a classy beauty such as herself.

As you probably have noticed red is on the rise and Mendes entwined beautiful bright reds into many of the pieces. Her taste much resembles Jackie O’s, and we all know Jackie O was timeless in her wardrobe. Jackie O is goals, and so is Eva’s entire holiday line. Boucle, lace, cable knits, and tweeds all in reds, blacks, and white… What’s not to love?

Holiday Gifting

Holiday Gifting can be somewhat overwhelming. How much do you really want to spend, what does each person like, will it fit in a suitcase, should I order it online or buy in store, is there gift wrapping… there’s so many questions that run through my head when I’m picking out gifts for the lovely babes in my life.

Thanksgiving Tablescape

I can spend hours on end tablescaping. What’s tablescaping? It’s creating a setting place at the table that is unique to your tastes or a theme. I had the opportunity to create a Thanksgiving tablescape using Marks & Spencer  Home. In the past, there have been so many etiquette rules about which plates/silverware/glasses etc need to be set. I say, let’s have fun breaking those rules.

I wanted to set a table employing all of the favorite elements and tricks. Below I show the end result and each element. —>>>

Black and White Trend

There is a major Black and White trend in play and I’m happy to see New York & Company hopping on the bandwagon. The truth is “black and white” is not a trend, it’s classic and it’s consistent. There will always be a place for black and white in anyone’s wardrobe if it’s done right.

Sweater Weather

In Arizona we are deprived of life with four seasons. We experience: mildly warm, hot, hotter, and on fire. That being said, we are slowly approaching mildly warm, which I consider Sweater Weather. Since this past summer seemed especially grueling and long I started collecting sweaters early to give me hope hot cappuccinos and cool walks with the family were around the corner.

The Look

New York & Co. has the most amazing selection this year. I found not just one or two, but maybe 10 sweaters that needed a home in my closet. I’m featuring a few of my favorites here. I love clothing with movement, which means fringe everything. This white fringe sweater and matching white fringe sweater skirt is probably one of the most comfy sets I’ve ever worn that’s so chic at the same time. I paired it with booties, but just imagine it with some great heels. Get festive with your shoe choice. I would even wear some red pumps with this set around the holidays.
