Golden Globes Best Dressed 2017

Awards season is here! I absolutely loved watching the red-carpet at the Golden Globes this past Sunday. I love how body hugging is out, and A-Line skirts are in. So flattering for any body shape really, more specifically hour-glass and pear shape figures. Below, is whom I feel won me over with their best dressed.

Reese Witherspoon, along with Kerry Washington and a few other other Hollywood beauties, like Jennifer Aniston, when doesn’t she look? When isn’t there a colour can’t she pull off, or neckline, or style? Clothes always look so stunning on Witherspoon.So elegant, so classy, so tasteful with the slit up the thigh. 

I do have to say, Meryl Streep, you are so not over-rated. Your speech was fabulous!

With an eye-liner brush smudge your eye-liner to the outer-eye. Followed by creating a natural flush. This blush looks like NARS in Orgasm. This blush creates the perfect flush. It’s a best-selling blush, not just for the company, but over-all for a reason! Top it off with nude lips.

10 HandBags That are Timeless!

his is a great article on! They have nailed it. These must-haves are a staple to have in your closet. I love the Prada Saffiano Bag, Louis Vuitton Speedy Bag, Dior Lady Bag, Fendi Baguette


 Louis Vuitton Speedy Bag 

First available in the 1930’s, this classic Louis Vuitton bag might be called a Speedy, but it’s hardly fast fashion. It has cowhide leather handles that darken with age. While the most well known Speedy is probably the most classic model made of logo canvas, Louis Vuitton has created the bag in a variety of styles and colors, from graffiti to more traditional leathers and new ones come out every season. The Speedy is a classic bag because it can be casual with jeans and a t-shirt and formal for an evening at the opera. It also looks proportional with every body type. The size and shape of the Speedy make it the perfect bag for every woman who needs to carry a lot of things with them.



Balenciaga Motorcycle Bag 

Although the brand was established in 1915, Balenciaga saw a resurgence in 2003, when Nicolas Ghesquière created the Motorcycle Bag exclusively for the fashion house’s runway show. Model Kate Moss fell in love with bag, Balenciaga then made it available for purchase and the rest is fashion history. A modern classic, the bags are made of a soft, very light, durable leather and come with leather framed mirrors and cell phone pockets. The zippers have a signature leather tassel pull. There are two hand straps fastened to the bags as well as a removable longer shoulder strap. Currently, the most expensive Motorcycle Bag is $2,045, but there are minis available for around $1,300.



Bottega Veneta Intrecciato 

Bottega Veneta is the Italian leather brand you recognize for it’s style, not it’s logo. Known for their artisanal simplicity, Bottega Veneta simply means Venetian Shop and not surprisingly the company’s slogan is “When Your Own Initials Are Enough.” Established in 1966, the company’s founders Vittorio and Laura Moltedo, developed a leather weaving technique called intrecciato, which has defined their signature style ever since. Intreccaito is used to make a wide variety of Bottega Veneta’s handbags and accessories, from clutches to weekenders. Currently, the Nero Nappy Vulcana Bag is available for $6,650, but equally stylish and less expensive shoulder bags are available in the $2,500 range.


Prada Saffiano Bag

The House of Prada was founded in 1913, but did not become a household name until after 1978, when Miuccia Prada took over the company. Saffiano is treated leather that is embossed with a cross hatch pattern, which makes the bag more durable and increases scratch resistance as well as water resistance. Most importantly, saffiiano leather makes for gorgeous accessories. Saffiano bags have two handles and gold hardware, as well as the signature Prada gold upside down triangle logo. A celebrity favorite, actresses Hailee Steinfeld and Lindsay Lohan as well as singer Rihanna have all been spotted with the Prada Classic. Saffiano bags come in a variety of shapes from totes to minis, currently costing from $9,660 to around $1,700.

Dior Lady Bag

A new classic, Christian Dior’s Lady bag was given as a gift to Princess Diana from the first lady of France, Bernadette Chirac. After the chic Princess was photographed with it, the bag was immediately named after her and has graced the forearms of the elegant and sophisticated ever since. Each bag is hand made and each cannage quilted square pattern is hand crafted and then fitted with either gold or silver hardware and a singature CD charm. While perhaps the most well-known Lady bag materials are patent leather and calfskin, but you can buy a python one for $11,800. However, non-leather mini Ladies start at around $1,200.




The Gucci Jackie Bag

The Gucci Jackie Bag is another stunner than never goes out of style. Created in the late 1950’s for the bag’s namesake Jackie Kennedy Onassis, it has remained an accessory staple. It was even slightly redesigned and re-launched in 1999, but both the old and new Jackies are still avalable. The shoulder bag, which is actually quite comfortable, has the signature Gucci piston clasp. Handmade in Italy, it comes in many styles and materials. The most expensive Jackie Bag was sold for $20,400, but there are classic GG initial logo styles available for only $1,450. Like it’s namesake, the Jackie is sophisticated, but stunning.



The Fendi Baguette 

A modern classic, designed in 1997 by Silvia Venturini, the baguette was made to fit under the arm, like a French Baguette loaf. Ever since, there have been over a thousand different baguettes made of different materials from denim, to pony skin and crocodile. Perhaps the most famous Baguette belonged to fictional fashion icon Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and The City, when she was mugged for her purple sequin one. After the episode aired, fashionistas declared the Baguette, an It bag. A book was even published to commemorate the bag’s fifteenth anniversary. The most expensive Baguette was sold for $6,220, but prices start around $1,400.




Hermès Kelly Bag

The Hermès Kelly Bag is the ultimate stays symbol. No other accessory has subtly screamed expensive quite the way the Kelly does. First introduced in 1892 as a saddle bag, the iconic accessory evolved and was ultimately named for princess Grace Kelly of Monaco, when it was given to her in 1954. It has been making women feel like princesses ever since. Handmade, these bags take between 18-25 hours to create. It is Hermès’ best selling bag of all time.

The most expensive Kelly Bag ever sold was auctioned for $125,000 in December 2013. It was a one of a kind known as the Geranium Porosus. However, most “starter” Kellys start at around $11,00.



Hermès Birkin Bag

Named for actress Jane Birkin, it was first created for her in 1984 when she sat next to Hermès executive Jean-Louis Dumas on an airplane and told him she was having trouble finding a good leather weekend bag. Dumas had the bag created for her based on a design from 1892. These bags, which are lined with goat skin leather and then made with a variety of leathers including calf skin, ostrich, lizard and crocodile, take approximately 48 hours to make by hand.

The most expensive Birkin Bag cost $120,00 and was made of crocodile with 18 carat gold hardware encrusted with diamonds. However, most Birkins start around $11,000.



The Chanel Flap Bag

The Chanel flap bag is the epitome of a classic handbag. It is simply designed and crafted. First introduced in 1955 by Coco Chanel herself, who was tired of carrying her purse in her hands and wanted something chic for her shoulders. It was slightly re-designed in 1983 by Karl Lagerfeld, who added the iconic CC clasp.

If you are considering purchasing one of these bags, do it sooner rather than later because the prices of these bags have been known to increase bi-annually. At any price, it is a worthwhile investment. The most expensive flap bag was sold for $261,000, but less expensive ones start at a more relatively affordable $2,200.

Fashion Hack: White Wine Removes Red Wine Stains?

I had not ever thought that white wine would remove red wine stains. Did you? I have done some of my share of spoilage of staining shirts, dresses, carpets, etc. Well, just blot (don’t rub) white wine (making sure you have a cloth with white wine on it) on the stain. Before you know it, it has vanished. So simple, and yet, so effective. Yeah, I know. This means less wine to drink…

Fashion Hack: Wooden Hangers vs. Plastic Hangers




What’s the difference between the two, despite the fact that wooden hangers make all of your clothes look so much better. They’re sophisticated, and so on. How about with wooden hangers your clothes don’t shrink. Where as clothes being hung on plastic hangers do shrink. I’m sure you’ve wondered, “I haven’t put this top in the dryer and it isn’t fitting like it used to. What’s going on?” Look at your choice at hangers that you’ve decided to use.

Fashion Hack: How to Properly Wash Your Jeans So They Don’t Fade and Loose Shape!

Don’t you hate it when your jeans fade? Or, how about when they get so tight, you can’t wear them. Or, maybe it’s when they shrink? Yes, me, too.

Here is how you should be washing your jeans, so they don’t fad, they don’t loose shape, so they last so much longer.

Step 1: Make sure your jeans are inside out.

Step 2: Place them into the washer.

Step 3: When the washer concludes, take the jeans out, and let them air-dry by hanging them up with a pants hanger, so these hangers have two clips or lay them flat on a flat surface. DON’T place them in the dryer.

Style Tip to Cleaning Your Bathing Suit by Stacy London

I was watching Stacy London on the Rachael Ray show today. She had this great tip to cleaning your bathing suit to maintain a vibrant colour of your swim suit so it doesn’t fade or whatever it may happen if you wash your swim through the washing machine. So, don’t wash it in through the washing machine. I have actually began washing every single one of my bathing suits with this style trick. Thank you, Stacy for this trick!! 

Let me share you her trick. Washing your bathing suit with vinegar. It keeps your swim sut looking new so much longer.That’s right, vinegar. White vinegar really cleans everything. Haven’t you noticed that?

Style Hack: Stretch Your Shoes in the Freezer


I am always excited to hear about new style hacks to break into shoes faster. I’m quick to try it out. Let’s face it, new shoes do hurt the feet, so much so that your feet feel like they’re going to fall off? Oh, I have had that plenty of times, not just from wearing new shoes, but having flat feet. So, I had come across this style hack on Jillian Harris’ website for new shoes. So, you put your new shoes into the freezer? No. Anyway, this trick really works. Try it!


2 freezer zip lock bags


New shoes


You want to begin by filling the zip lock bags 3/4 with water. Keep in mind water expands when freezing, which is so good as it will stretch out your shoes. Place the bags into the freezer. Once the water has froze, remove from the freezer and place one bag into each your shoes.

Style Hack: Steam Your Clothes in the Shower


Have you ever brought your clothes into the bathroom, kept them hung on a hanger, jump into the shower, only to come out to realize all of the wrinkles on your clothes have vanished? I have many times. Without even thinking about how to remove wrinkles from clothes without having to iron them, I had brought whatever I was going to wear into the bathroom, showered, and my clothes were good to go. After all, the steam from the shower does de-wrinkles your wardrobe. I have done this about ten years ago, at least. As for how long, some people will say it depends on the fabric. My showers normally consist of twenty minutes. Every piece of clothing has been fine. Do make sure that your clothes are away from the running water. I normally leave my clothes hung on a hanger, hanging on the back of my bathroom door.
