Crane birds are the latest graphic to turn iconic, rather like pineapples and pelicans in seasons past. My crush began last year with a pair of crane bird palazzo pants, and now continues with two recent finds that are so inexpensive they're bound to fly off the racks before you can say "Get the flock out of here!"
As Valentine's Day approaches romance is in the air and spring tickles our senses with the melting of snow, peep shows of sunlight and flowering buds
Only recently did bike-sharing make its debut in Scottsdale AZ, although the program has been active in Phoenix (on a much smaller scale) and elsewhere within the US for several years.
They appeared like magic out of nowhere. Abracadabra... suddenly there were lime green and bright yellow bicycles left randomly on street corners, at bus stops or lined up in neat rows like soldiers.
Bicycles were multiplying across the city faster than you could say "on your bike mate"! We are being invaded by aliens disguised as neon colored bicycles!
We have Balenciaga to thank for the return and subsequent sock booties crush that has emerged this past fall and winter season. That's alright, I for one enjoy crushing on high-end designer styles, especially when they're rapidly made available at a not so high-end designer price!
In case you're unfamiliar with the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auctions, they are the car lover's dream and for those who can afford to bid, and win - perhaps a dream come true!
Shopping for jeans is perhaps one of the most difficult endeavors we women have to deal with from a clothing stand point. Finding the perfect pair has been my life's work!
With high street shops and mall store favorites closing down on a weekly basis, we better get our heads around this online shopping malarkey. It's here to stay and millions of online vendors selling everything from cat litter to cat walk designer clothes are magically opening their virtual doors for business out there in the ether of internet land. So too are the plethora of "influencers" jumping on the band wagon from here to Timbuktu persuading their followers that this, that or the other product is the best. But it's not all bad... let me explain!
Hello, my name is Karen and I'm addicted to coats! As a self professed coat addict, I recently decided that a faux fur leopard coat is not just a "nice to have" but an essential winter wardrobe "must have"! Clearly everyone else thinks so too, because faster than I can write this article, the faux fur leopard coats and jackets are selling out like hot cakes.
Here is my comparison between two faux fur leopard coat contestants that made it to the keepers finale!
Ready for Christmas, I wish! It's a rare occurrence for me to be fully prepared for Christmas in advance of the actual due date, in particular the buying of gifts. Even less likely to be gift ready for those I know who celebrate Hanukkah since the due date for that is even earlier! You probably think I have a fear of deadlines... perhaps so!
At least I have the decorations up! Last year the hubby didn't erect the tree until it was so late I didn't have time to hang the baubles on it! We had a naked tree all through the holidays with the only consolation being that it's pre-lit so it sort of had it's underwear on!

Wearing a suit definitely gets you taken more seriously. The epitome of power dressing, a Prince of Wales check suit is one to be reckoned with, and this one is serious on so many levels: style, comfort, price and versatility.
It's quite possible I may have saved you from the arduous task of searching for the perfect little black dress that can be styled up or down, is simple, comfortable, versatile and inexpensive. You're welcome! My perseverance has paid off and "voila", say hello to my little friend the perfect LBD!
A spray-on tan has to be one of the easiest and cost effective ways to get yourself an allover instant golden tan ready for a vacation or special event. I had the opportunity to try this beauty treatment, a completely customized hand sprayed tan at the Golden Glo Airbrush Tanning salon in Scottsdale. I am absolutely amazed how natural it looks and how gorgeous it made me feel.
Don't underestimate shopping in your daughters' favorite stores. Whilst they're not likely to become our be-all and end-all shopping euphoria, the prices are ridiculously cheap, and if you seek out the right fit, fabrics and styles, you can snag yourself a wardrobe gem that doesn't look cheap or Forever 21!
What could be easier than jumpsuit dressing? One piece only, doesn't require much thought to the coordination of other items with the exception of shoes and accessories. Not only does it offer effortless style, but the jumpsuit trend is still holding steady this season, almost to the point of encroaching on the classic evening attire of dresses. A jumpsuit strikes a pose with it's long line and fluid silhouette. It's created a class entirely of it's own, a sort of "sophistichic"!
