Fashion: Carolina Herrera – Spring 2020

After the 49ers lost yesterday in the Superbowl, I needed to gear my focus onto something fancy and colorful – just to shake off the disappointment I felt after watching the game. Although Kansas City Chiefs did kick **s – so the win was well deserved. But let’s move past that and talk about these amazing Caroline Herrera, who happens to be one of my favorite designers – Spring 2020 collection On another note, what did you think about Brad Pitt’s BAFTA acceptance speech? If you did watch the Superbowl – which commercial did you like the most or the least? My favorite was Jason Memoa’s  And as I called it, the little girl singing alongside Jennifer Lopez was non other than her daughter Emme – who has everyone buzzing about her performance at the half-time show with her mum. 

Fashion: A Little French Boutique Store Called Sézane

I walked past the pop-up in San Francisco- Maiden Lane, when my thoughts were elsewhere and it wasn’t until I got home that I realized the opportunity I missed to walk into a Sézane store  in my hometown, that would have taken me away to somewhere in Paris and perhaps do a little shopping for these chic pieces:

Fashion: Autumn Wear Even For The Casual Weekends

On Sunday I was invited to breakfast with a friend and since the weather was super cold, I opted for warm athleisure wear, tennis shoes, no makeup and hair up in a messy ponytail. And then I arrive at the restaurant, and the first thing I noticed was how chic some folk, mostly the women were dressed to the occasion. Then I felt self-conscious of course, and vowed that I would make an effort to rummage through my closet and create these looks for the holiday brunches, and shopping  I plan to do over the course of the next few weekends.  

A Lazy Saturday Topics of Interest

This time of year, I prefer the indoors, spending most of my weekends in my pajamas craving hot chocolate, baked goods, and naps. Don’t misunderstand. I have a list of chores I need to tackle, but for some reason, the gloomy outdoors has me needing to find inspiration… {featured image source and inspiration for this topic}

Lifestyle: Anthropologie Not So In Moderation

I walked into Anthropologie at the Stanford Shopping mall yesterday with my jaw dropped, and my eyes lit up at the sight of the most beautiful put together emporium of holiday-ish and other products ready for the best shopping season of the year. I wanted everything, and most of the displays managed to captivate and enchant me in ways I haven’t been strolling though an actual retail establishment. Good for them, I say for materializing a solid vision. So I dug deep to find out which umbrella of retail stores was this particular establishment and discovered the results here.  It’s an interesting read that I will leave you to consider. Otherwise please proceed to the fun stuff below. {featured image and inspiration for blog entry}

Why Treating Yourself Is A Wonderful Idea

I haven’t shopped much this year, thinking I already have all that I need in my efforts to downsize and live a simpler life. But, sometimes, one has to simply treat themselves to the smallest of things, to elevate the otherwise bleakest of emotions surfacing during this time of year. For that very reason, I did a bit of window shopping over the weekend, and without plan really ended up with these goodies. What have you treated yourself to recently?  {featured image source and inspiration for this post}

Fashion: Fall Coats for 2019

The best ‘weather’ in season for San Francisco is Autumn, in that we get our Indian Summer – hot sunny days, and cooler evenings and we can literally see the moon at night (no fog). So thinking about coats for that season right before Winter sounds weird to us locals.  But, I can’t help share a few of my favorite coast from this list of twenty stylish fall coats for 2019 {featured image source and inspiration for today’s blog post} On another note – just started watching Mozart in the Jungle – and at first hated it, and now I am very curious to see the progression/story unfolding. Have you seen it? Will you see it? Does the show interest you or not your cup of tea? 

Fashion: Dresses for The Mature Woman

Or as I’d like to call it – those over 40, since sometimes maturity has nothing to do with wearing age-appropriate or those that compliment the figure. But then again, if it makes a person feel good, by all means, I say flaunt it as you vision it. But just in case you are curious, here’s what’s suggested and as always my favorites below. Let me know if you agree or disagree, if a certain dress code should be followed after 40. On another note – are you as excited as I am about the Downton Abbey Movie – which opens in the U.S. on September 20 {featured image source and credit}

Fashion: Backpacks Are In

If you live in a tech city and need to commute to work, while working on your commute, the backpack is the ideal bag-of-sorts to consider. I do, and it has helped a great deal since I converted, especially when the train breaks down in San Francisco, and you find yourself walking a great distance sometimes, so the backpack helps. Not to mention the lunch, the shoes, the laptop, and everything else but the kitchen sink women need to feel whole while outside of our homes. 🙂 Check out these stylish ones… and do you prefer a handbag over a backpack? {source}
