{Weekend InStyle…}

There is no better way to start your weekend than to come home and find that in your mail box awaits a lovely gift.  Just for renewing what is considered every fashionistas bible, InStyle Magazine, I received this sweet little red InStyle canvas tote.  Isn’t it simply adorable?  So looking forward to taking it out for a spin this weekend.  Heh!  It really is all about the little pleasures in life.  😉

My treasures, wishing you a weekend that will begin and end in great style.  Cheers Mon Cheri!!!

This year I’m committed to embracing delightfully vibrant colors and incorporating it into every aspect of my life…in fashion, at work and at home.  I’m done with playing it safe.  Out with classic black and heeeellllloooo rich, deep colors that pop.

Holiday ‘Fiestas’ and Other Nerve-racking Fashion Moments

Here we are, one month and some change shy of 2011 and as of yet, I haven’t managed to eat my way to super skinny and fabulous.  You would think that by this point I would have just given in to all of my size 8, Latina curves and va-va-voom-ness but quite frankly, I’d prefer a bit more flatlands on this body than all of these mountains (i.e. the bubbies and my derrière).  Sure, I could have exercised myself into a nonexistent dress size but my list of excuses weighed down my ample butt.  Now the holiday invites are quickly multiplying in our mailbox and the angst of choosing the perfect dress for all of these extravaganzas has me completely flummoxed.  The husband, thankfully, doesn’t have these issues because he can wear anything he wants and still look like my Mr. McDreamy but this isn’t about him.  Let’s get back to my dilemma.  =)

So, do I go short and leggy?  This dress would require my thighs to undergo a rigorous treatment of love whacks and pat-downs of a rolling pin.  Perhaps I exaggerate but a few thigh treatments at the spa may be in order if I go this route.  These legs MUST be up to snuff before I sashay my sassy self in this little confection of loveliness.

Do I go long and svelte?  This sleek number would require the – ahem – TWINS to climb up onto a stepladder and harness themselves up and out in order to keep them in saluting formation. Hmmm…maybe I can squeeze in a ‘bubbie’ appointment for a slight tuck and lift before the fiesta countdown. Heh!

Or do I go camouflage ‘caliente’ in this simple but spicy little treat? This may be just the ticket to hide any unsavory pooch puffs.

Sigh.  No matter how I go about this process, just getting to the “WOW” will be no picnic.

The End of My Affair with Jimmy Choo (Shoes)

Dear Choo: (You know you love it when I call you by your pet name)

The Husband is on to us.  I can no longer parade you around town or meet you in clandestine boutiques.  I no longer care how many incentives you throw my way.  The Husband is no longer buying into my “oh, this old thing?” routine.

You barely ever go on sale and let’s not discuss how you’re cutting into my slush fund.  Yes, I know that we looked good together.  You, on my feet, were all splendid and fabulous but I can’t afford to take you to all those lavish affairs anymore.  You’re high maintenance and require too many accoutrements.  It’s almost impossible to dress you down without looking like I tried too hard.  Your demands on my time and money are bordering on the absurd and frankly, my interest now lay in another, less costly, pair of designers.  

I know. Sigh.  My love for you has lasted over a decade but all delicious things must come to an end.  I’ve decided to start dating another name brand.   I only tell you because I don’t want you to see me around town, pairing up with another sexy set of stilettos without informing you first.  So, for now, I’m calling it quits.  No, no…I don’t need your new flyer to yet another flagship store.  You no longer hold the same allure for me.   When the economy improves, perhaps, mon ami, we can date again.  But, until then lover, back in the box you go.

xoxo,
