Fall for J.Crew

Who has seen the deliciousness of J.Crew's New Arrivals? I immediately added nearly everything to my online shopping card. I do not know that I have seen so many items that were made in tall in one New Arrivals release. There are even some items that only come in standard sizes that I am considering [...]

How To: Wedding Registry

Did you know that iTunes recently released seasons one through four of Will & Grace, as well as the pre-sale of the 2017 - 2018 season? It was one of my favorite shows to watch while it was on the air. My fiance and I digested the four available seasons over the past two weeks; [...]

Muse Monday: Emily Charlton

I have written about my dislike for the 'Kardashian' look in the past, and that preference certainly will not change my mind for my wedding day. I prefer a more classic, traditional look on me. When one is 6'-2" tall and wearing super dramatic makeup, complete with smokey eye and heavy contour, one risks being confused [...]

Muse Monday: Carolyn Bessette Kennedy

I am forever inspired by style of public figures, celebrities, royals, politicians, movie and television characters. Every week, Muse Monday will examine my favorite looks from a long list of ladies (and sometimes gentlemen) whose styles I admire. First up: American royalty and a class act who left the world too soon, Carolyn Bessette Kennedy. [...]
