Elegantly Hip

This tan, linen jacket, worn over a long white tee, is up to date with its rounded collar and three-quarter length sleeves. It is accented by four flap pockets and a four button closure. A brown hip-to-hem hugging knee-length skirt is the perfect complement. Brown pumps with an exotic chain and snake-styled top, and a teal bag complete the outfit.

Looking Back, Looking Forward


Functional and stylish. Bags seem to be growing exponentially this fall. I suppose we need more room for fall essentials like an umbrella or an emergency cardigan or wrap. A leather tote is a must then, for it is as stylish as it is functional.

This aubergine leather tote is a modern classic. Its standard rectangular shape, subtle brass hardware, and butter soft leather ensure it has timeless appeal.

A Fashion Revival

Houndstooth is back. And, it is badder than ever, from the small broken checks to the big checks. This houndstooth, silk/cotton blend, flared skirt provides the ideal foundation for this work outfit. It is paired with a satiny blue silk camisole with delicate lace trimming and a silhouette-enhancing black cardigan. Navy patent flats with a glitzy golden double ring adornment finish the look.

In the Fashion Flow

Silky soft. It’s hard to go wrong with this silky soft matte jersey dress. With a black and ecru polka dot print, flowing bell sleeves, and the option to tie a black self-belt around the hips, the dress emanates vintage glam. It is paired with black cap-toe pumps, and a green leather bag.

Check Check It Out

So glad about plaid. This jacket is a checkered sensation with its delightful union of blues, grey, and purple. It is short with short sleeves and has a two-button closure. It adds some zest to a white tube and dark long and lean jeans. The look is completed by navy and white, soft-tumbled, standout, leather loafers, and a navy doctor style handbag.
