say yes

Sometimes against logical reason you just need to say yes. This purple snakeskin clutch purchased over one year ago at an unbelievable sale price even when I was feeling flat broke and not needing anything? Yes. It has become one of my favorite bags. Pretty much paid considerably less than the sales tax on a big name bag. I love it and am so glad I said yes even though all other brainwaves were telling me to resist, hard.

So, why I am writing this? Here is the lifestyle piece tied in with the fashion piece: as a recruiter, trainer, mentor and sales person by profession I am encouraging you to take the leap- jump in- pull the trigger. It’s not always safe but so worth the experience. I have said yes so many times and it has led me to unbelievable experiences. Scary? Yes. Uncertain? Yes. Believe in my dreams? Yes. Glad I do? Even though painful at times, Yes.

Happy Friday.

Two days in Boston MA in mid-July. Stopped in at Neiman Marcus, Barney’s and Dior and felt a bit lonely. Don’t get me wrong, everything was gorgeous and beautiful but I was missing a connection. In days full of seeming connectivity through all social media I was missing the relationship factor while browsing. When in Boston and looking for a personalized luxurious shopping experience, check in with Diana Moore. She will instantly ‘get you’ and provide custom service and attention to your professional and down time wardrobe needs. Contact her at www.dianamoore.net.

Herein are a few photos from her Newbury Street show space.

This dress has it going on and works overtime. Traveled in a duffel bag folded up small and met the summer street heat and office space air conditioning. It went from Starbucks to work to lunch to dinner and could have even met up for cocktails.

To all solo women travelers: beware when cab drivers tell you they don’t take credit cards. You would think that by now I would know that scheme. It get’s worse; he didn’t have change for two $20’s. Live and learn always.

Dress pictured, Worth New York Fall 2012. Feels great, look great, travels superbly well.

Feeling very Angelina, I wish, with a Louis Vuitton speedy duffel packed with all black clothes for my two days of work on Newbury Street.

As it is too late to now make any more recruiting phone calls, here is a quick post with what I packed: two black dresses, one sleeveless, one three quarter, one pair of black jeans, one black leather tee, one scarf. All black undergarments. Two pairs of black shoes, both heels- one sandal, one wedge. Not shown but essential? Two pairs of running shorts, sports bras, athletic tops, and purple Nike sneakers. (had to get some color in there somewhere). On the plane of course I wore black skinnies, black tee, flat sandals. Why bring three additional pairs of shoes for a two day trip? When your feet feel good you feel good.

Here is my tip for the day when you are traveling for work and super busy and need to get out of town and still have a million things to do: pick one color and pack all in that one color. Less stress, easier exit. Black rules when working.

All clothing shown is Worth New York and photos were snapped on an iPhone.

Sorry for the posting delay- today was a day of work work work and edit edit edit. Not too glamorous but necessary.

I look forward to sharing with you some closet editing tips once I master them in the next couple of weeks.

In the meantime here is what will be on toes, nails, and lips as I travel to Boston MA to work a Fall 2012 Worth New York Trunk Show for a few days: Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour 563 Vertigo on toes, Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour 561 Suspicious on nails, and Chanel Rouge Coco Shine 67 Deauville on lips. When working with Fall clothes I always switch out the makeup look. Feel the need to dump the july/orange/coral look even though it is hotter than heck and wear the Fall tones. Thanks, mom.

Happy Monday.

Celebrated forty-seventh birthday by cooking dinner for seven at home. Menu included beef tenderloin, Copper River salmon, hericots verts, roasted garlic potatoes, spinach salad. Small perfect birthday cake, vanilla ice cream and great wine included.

At this age I have learned that if you want good things you have to go out and make them happen. Kind of like this black dress- we all have black dresses in our closet but this one lets you cook and feel like a party guest at the same time. So, given my somewhat hectic days I ordered it back in May for a July delivery. Totally worth the wait as it made me feel great and comfortable while cooking dinner and taking care of my guests. Flat sandals make it super easy. Side zipper goes goes all the way up to under the arm. Fun. Mom commented that it reminded her of the Halston Jumpsuits she used to wear.

Thoughts for the day? Cook dinner on your birthday at home and treat the important people in your life. It all comes back to you double. Wear a great dress. Make good things happen.

Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes. Had a great day.

In photos I am wearing Worth New York’s Black Sleek to the Ankle Jersey Dress from Summer 2012. Has a bit of stretch and the side ruching helps define the waistline. If you like your lululemon gear, this would be a great addition to your wardrobe as it is so super easy to move in and can be dressed up or down.

Arrived home after easy eight hour drive to tons of mail and the new copy of Town & Country magazine. The company I work for, Worth New York, placed a two page ad in the August issue and it follows Ralph Lauren Collection, Gucci, and Bottega Venata. In my mind that is pretty good company.

I discovered Worth New York fourteen years ago by the ads in both Town & Country and Veranda and have not looked back since. I love what I do, what I wear, and would love to tell you more.

After a week on the road I could have showed you some pics of the laundry mountain but I thought that might best be left to the imagination. 🙂

LOVE the ad- super excited for the Fall season.

One hour Cliff Walk sure beats the treadmill.

Checked in at 41° North. If you are into lounge music, super big boats, fully stocked bar, and attentive professional wait staff, this place is for you. Enjoyed a great dinner outside on the patio.

Worth New York’s Black Jersey Leather Strap Blouse is super comfortable and has me feeling ready to head home. Had a great stay, thank you Newport RI, and now anxious to get back to work.

collect: scarves

Trainer suggests thirty minutes of cardio first thing in the morning on an empty stomach so started the day in the hotel gym on the elliptical. As husband fed me ice cream for lunch, are  you feeling any fifty shades of grey, together we went back to the gym after the beach and I got in a double session, greatly needed.

Scarves and wraps are a perfect thing to collect. Fold them up small to fit in your handbag. They instantly change your look, cover your shoulders, or keep you warm from ocean breezes or extreme air conditioning.

When wearing a sequin t shirt dress you really don’t need much else. Colored suede wedges dress it down and a Worth New York wrap from Spring/Summer 2011 adds a nautical look.

Hope everyone had a wonderful safe Independence Day with family, friends and loved ones.

Castle Hill Inn Newport RI was the setting for amazing three hour dinner. Oldest daughter remarked that the salted butter was so good she would eat it with a spoon. My kind of girl.

When traveling and really just about all the time, I wear a watch, diamond stud earrings, engagement and wedding band, and a ring on my right hand husband gave me when he turned fifty. That’s the kind of thing he does. To keep things easy and modern one additional statement piece is added- shown here again is the silver cuff from Albright-Knox Art Galley museum shop.

Photos feature Alice + Olivia dress from favorite Newport shop Kristina Richards Studio. The pic with two oldest daughters includes the Worth New York Timber Spectrum Shift Oblong from Spring 2012.

Happy almost 4th of July.
