Polka dots used to make me break out into a rash (figuratively of course. If I meant literally then that would be a whole new level of irony wouldn’t it?) But then I was sitting in a movie theatre years ago and saw Julia Roberts in “Pretty Woman” wearing a brown polka dot dress to watch … [Read More...]
My SEO guru Neil Patel would balk at my non-SEO optimized blog post titles. They're mostly random or in this case, a phrase that got stuck in my head after listening to Janet Jackson while working out on the treadmill. And by working out I mean sort of shuffling really slowly while … [Read More...]
If there’s no second chance to make a first impression, there is a chance to make a lasting impression by having an excellent business card. According to a survey, 87% of Americans still exchange business cards when networking. That means it’s essential to put your best foot (hand?) … [Read More...]
My weight has yo-yo'ed quite significantly throughout the years. My work which for the most part consists of my sitting in front of the computer hashing out blog posts and social media updates or, going to events usually stocked with champagne, sugar-laden drinks and pastries have made weight gain a … [Read More...]
I'm not going to bury the lead here. You will not find improbable, virtual magic tricks to make your hair look photo-shoot ready with full bouncy curls that seem to defy gravity.

This could also be a Michele Obama vs. Hillary Clinton showdown post.
Look, I admire any woman who has attained a position of power in today’s (still) male-dominated society. So when I say that I’m not a fan of Hilary Clinton’s pantsuits, I hope that Taylor Swift doesn’t send me to Tina Fey’s … [Read More...]
I saw a saying on Pinterest the other day that said “I am a survivor not a victim” and it made me think about those who are style victims instead of cultivating a look that will survive in the workplace. (Granted the quote was about more serious issues, but if I can spin a quote to work in my life, … [Read More...]
I have a confession. I only started wearing hats since last year. Previously, I had thought my face was too wide for hats but that all of that changed on my trip to Panama where I got fitted at Ole, a famous hat maker in Old Panama City that sells yes, Panama hats.
Wearing an original Panama … [Read More...]
My sister is the worst person to shop with. As wonderful as she is, she can be the shop assistant’s worst nightmare. Trying everything in sight ( twice) and then not buying anything. Needless to say, I’ve stopped shopping with her for a while but according to her husband she’s now quite the changed … [Read More...]
I recently perfected my casual, no-makeup look before heading off to St. Barths for a vacation. So imagine my surprise when I arrived to find many women grasping for the opposite! Picture full-on makeup while they lounged at the pool and (gasp) cooled off in the sea. What was going on?

I love your blog and I think you're a true style chameleon. I'm a startup 'trep and although I want to look grown-up, I also want to look youthful and FUN. How can I do this? - Sarah L.

I’m not entirely sure what to make of the “cold shoulder” trend. On the one hand, I think: great - now I can cover up my less-than-Michelle-Obama-perfect upper arms while still looking summery. But mostly I think: this can go wrong really badly.
How To Wear The Trend … [Read More...]
