The Classic Trench


This trench coat trends under the 2010 Michael Kors collection
but no matter...it is one of those timeless ensembles that could be
worn any time. Call me old fashioned, but I love that classic style. 
The whole look works for me. :)

Vintage Scarf Love



I just love poking around vintage shops.
You never know what you will find.
Sometimes I think it is more the thrill of the
chase than the actual item.
 I couldn't pass this one up, it was a bargain.
Holland and Holland...it had to be mine.
 Scarf love.

My 'Change of Life' Kurta

I was standing in the crowds last week in India and quickly snapped a photo 
of this woman as she passed. I had placed an order for the two of the same style top 
the day before. I call them my 'change of life' tops. My first thought when I slipped 
into one was 'where have you been all my life?' They are breezy, light, 
easy and fun to wear. A perfect travel companion.

 It is styled after a 'kurta', a type of men's pajama from India.
I like to think of it as a kaftan.
Sometimes you just have to go with what feels right.
At this stage in my life...this is perfect.

Kate, Cameron and Gwyneth


I just picked up the latest issue of Harpers Bazaar UK.
Is it me?
Have we lost Kate Winslet in this photo?
I can see a glimmer but I have to say
I prefer the real Kate...
Come back Kate!



Nice one ladies...
Gwyneth and Cameron, keeping it real.

Perhaps it is just me,
what do you think?

Admiring: Jill Clayburgh


Jill Clayburgh was one of my favourite 70's actresses. 
I loved her style.
Some of you may remember her in the 1978 film, 
 'An Unmarried Woman' with Alan Bates.
If it is new to you, I highly recommend it.

Jill Clayburgh and Diane Keaton were 'the' women to watch back then.
Through the years, I looked for Jill. She appeared in a few
movies but chose to step off screen and spend time 
with her family. In her later years, she performed on Broadway 
and had guest appeared in US television shows.
 Jill passed away in 2010 at the young age of 66.
A woman to admire and remember.

Effortlessly Elegant Silhouette....




Donna Karan
Draped jersey and satin-jersey top
Details here.


'Detailed with sleek satin-jersey inserts, Donna Karan's cowl-neck top is a glamorous way to work the label's signature draping. Pair this pale-olive style with a floor sweeping maxi skirt for an effortlessly elegant silhouette.'

....sigh....

I don't think I can add to that except that I love the look.
