Take A look: Windows on The World

I love big windows.
it all started when Ross and I moved into 
555 Buena Vista West with it's gingerbread facade
and huge black paned windows.
That was when I first realized how much depth 
and different lights ( + sparkle )
a view and windows can add to a room....

Meet Maxi~ My New Best Friend

After several seasons of fashionphile conveting, 
 The Maxi is finally enjoying it's own seasonless classification.

And in the words of the stylist's demi god (RZ)
The Maxi is floor length sophistication, ease and comfort
all in one package.

Familiar Territory

Ok, I'll admit, I grew up in one of those households 
enveloped in blue. Perhaps the matching sofa and 
carpet were a bit over the top - but I still stand by
my mom's artistic wash of navy bedroom walls.

The one thing about blue, is that it transcends.
Urban/ country/dressed up /dressed down.
Like black, let's never shy away from 
dressing in head to toe (navy) blue.
Of course, it definitely works as well (sheer perfection) 
in smaller increments...

The accents of black~ well...
Or shots of color...

Blue, like an old friend~
it only gets better....

One Is Never Enough

You know that rule about looking in the mirror 
before you leave the house and removing at least
one decoration? It should not apply to the wrist.
Love the shock of color.




This is definitely not limited to a 'street look', not at all.
And the cachet? It's been around the block.

Let's embellish.

It's The Weekend~ Let Me Take You Higher

Source: via Debbie on Pinterest

I've always been fascinated with staircases, maybe because 
I didn't grow up with one when I was young or maybe because I was obsessed 
with Shirley Temple movies...who's to say?
Bottom line ~ I love them.
Upstairs downstairs.
All of the above.

The world is your Oyster.

Happy Peppy people

Love the collaboration of Missoni and Target.
I have always dug the happy, peppy feeling that those colorful zig zag 
pattern mixes of Missoni emote. How fun it is to see the bright colors
like pink, emerald and turquoise mixed
in and up with tan and brown.

Signature Looks

Every season at least one designer comes up
with a look that is highly coveted right from the runway...
AW 2011 is definitely the year of the rococo 
print by  Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy.

The style of print and color combo is familiar in
 (Versace sort of way),  but can easily be toned down
to enliven the the everyday in all of us.

That's a panther. Yes.

A Life Embellished with a little or a lot of
this fall, will definitely be ahead of the curve.
