I COVET

The combination of the hint of fall in the air and the thick September Issues of all the fashion magazines has got me feeling heady. I mean who doesn't love "back to school" shopping? The anticipation of cool new fall clothes that are set off just right by that late summer tan. This season more than ever smart shopping is a must. Find a few essential pieces that can work for you in all types of situations. Then find the one piece you covet and spend some time thinking about how it might fit into your wardrobe and how you might justify the price tag. I found my piece yesterday at Stel's http://www.stelsinc.com/. I easily answered the first question but the second one is eluding me.

Fresh


This month's Bazaar magazine has photographed some of our favorite supermodels over the age of 30 bare faced and more beautiful than ever. It shows that beauty has little to do with clothing and make up and everything to do with self confidence. Something that generally also comes with age.

Gone Fishing



With many of my clients away enjoying the beaches and their families these fleeting summer months, it's no surprise that I hadn't found myself lingering down Newbury Street in quite some time. Today though, I decided to pop in on one of my all time favorite shops, Dress. http://www.dressboston.com . I love it when I haven't been in a boutique in a while, then go in to discover that they've gotten in loads of new amazing pieces. One of my favorite finds were these great necklaces by a line called Fish and Archer. Designer Britton Shores creates beautiful one-of-a-kind pieces using woven vintage silks, scarves, and laces (some of which she stains with organic teas), as well as leather, suede, synthetic pearls, crystal strands, chains, threading, and studs.
Aside from the obvious one-of -a-kind feature of these necklaces, what I loved about them is that you can wear them several different ways, a necklace, a bracelet and even a headband. They have enough sparkle to make them special but not so much that they can't be worn every day. Now if only I could decide which one I like best.
