Stay warm in style

I don’t know about you but I’ve always found that cold weather clothes are often far more stylish than warm weather outfits. I love the richer fabrics and somehow designers seem to make the most of winter clothing in the most stylish ways. The winter months are a great excuse to show your fashion style.



Stylish gifts that give back

Posted on , by Jackie in Accessories, Luxury Gifts. Comments Off

Style and saving

Many years ago, there were very few goods available that were suitable as gifts and at the same time, donated to charity. In those days giving-and-buying was restricted to charity holiday cards.

Halloween with style. What to wear

Posted on , by Jackie in Accessories, Fashion, Luxury Gifts, Passions. Comments Off

Can Halloween be stylish?

We’ve pondered this question. I have to say that as far as style is concerned, this is my least favorite event. I love Halloween colors – the black and orange – but so many of the decor items and clothing are, well, tacky to say the least. If you’re like me, you’ll want to get into the spirit of things (mild pun there) but you don’t want to dress up as a silly skeleton or a buxom serving wench. (Or do you? If so, scroll down!) So, what can we wear that’s sinisterly spooky and stylish too? Here are a few ideas.
