Everyday I somehow see women with pants that are too short. So I thought I would talk about how long your pants are supposed to be, since it doesn’t seem to be as obvious as I thought. Pants should hit the middle of the heel of your shoes.
So how do you manage to work differet height shoes with your pants? The answer is you need to have your pants hemmed to the height of the shoes you want to wear. Unfortunately, if you want to wear taller or shorter shoes you really need to have… Continue

Welcome to the new revolution in pasties ladies: Nippies. Created by a design company known as Bristols6, Nippies are nipple covers that come in a variety of fabrics (from silk to lace) and patterns (hearts, butterflies, stars, etc), and can be used up to 50 times before being replaced. The last time I wore a backless dress, I opted for my usual go-to: band-aids. However, thanks to the clingy silk of my dress, I ended up with a treasure map on each breast: x marks the spot. I discovered Nippies… Continue

So, browsing the internet for an interesting "Treasure Hunt" item, I found myself wandering back to Etsy.com to look at their hand-made, one-of-a-kind jewelry. I found a seller who stole my heart, considerng I have a serious weakness for chunky rings. I saw this ring (top pic) called "Crowned in Copper" made of river rock, set in a sterling silver accented with a band of braided copper. I kept thinking how pretty tis peachy color would look against summery tanned skin. As I explored further, I… Continue

This month's Spendthrift is both pretty and versatile: a sheer ombre wrap from Cold Water Creek. Take this to the movies as a wrap to snuggle under or to the office to add a little pizazz (and warmth) to your blouse and slacks. The beauty of this wrap is that it's sheer, so it's thin enough to tie around your neck as a scarf or even use it to tie back your hair. The subtle ombre fading of a tender green into a lovely cream really provides that "go with anything and everything you own" vibe:… Continue
