White Out

Hello again, Friends!

Now that I don’t have crippling “morning” but all day sickness, extreme exhaustion, not on vacation or suffering from a completely blinding sinus infection...I’m back. It’s been a tough couple of months but I’m feeling slightly refreshed and ready for our upcoming summer. 

Speaking of summer because it (officially) comes very soon I thought this was the perfect time to focus on this Dior Dictionary Word which is White! But where to start on this one? Even though Dior doesn’t touch on this I will. Call me old fashioned but I stick to the rules of white that “The Greats” created. I wear it after Memorial Day and put it away after Labor Day (excluding winter white of course). In a time of fashion where anything goes and everyone needing to be comfortable at all moments, I feel this “rule” is sacred. Plus, it makes wearing it that much more special.  


I so agree that white not only matches everything but also gives an impression of good grooming and being well dressed.

For my white look, I did my own take on a look from Emily in “A Simple Favor”. While she may have been the villain (hey I’ve always had a soft spot for the villains) , her style was much to emulate. Along for her love of a perfect martini (sigh...). Don’t think I didn’t want to run out and buy a stylish cane to go with this look. But that might have been a bit much even for me. But she sure did make an amazing case for menswear. I wanted to run out and buy all the suits!


I think when it comes to white every woman should have a crisp white suit in their wardrobe. There’s no way to look more chic in a flash. Shirt underneath optional.

Have a great Monday!


Swooning Over Skivvies

The perfect Dior word for Valentine’s Day week! 

I have so much to say about this topic that I almost don’t know where to start...


One thing that is still absolutely true is that lingerie is that it is the basis of good dressing. The amazing thing about lingerie is that it can totally transform your mood, the way you walk, and also the way you look in your normal clothes! 

I’ve always loved lingerie and have a pretty huge collection but I think it’s so cool how it has made its was into current fashion with bodysuits. It almost becomes more than lingerie. It becomes a statement.


A difference from the time Dior was in and now, is that I think lingerie as gotten a little less serious. Don’t get me wrong, really good lingerie is worth the splurge and I love my La Perlas but I also like to play with different colors and styles without having to break the bank. 

So even if you’re the only one seeing your Skivvies this Valentine’s Day, have fun with it and make yourself feel pretty!
