The Little White Tee and Thee

It's time to revisit an oldie, but goody.  The Post My Little White Tee originally appeared two years ago, but, with spring in full flower and summer beginning to bud, it's the perfect time to take another look at one of the hardest working wardrobe basics in your closet.  


White House Black Market

Among the hardest working pieces in a woman’s wardrobe, along with the perfect pair of jeans and the perfect LBD, is the perfect LWT – Little White Tee – especially in summer, when it becomes her favorite go-to piece.

The Art of the Scam

Donald Trump may know a thing or two about The Art of the Deal, but the art of the scam has been around since man first realized he could get rid of something he didn’t want or that was worthless by tricking another man into taking it. 

The Beautiful Rachel
In the Book of Genesis (first book of the Hebrew Bible/Christian Old Testament), Laban tricks young Jacob into marrying the wrong sister.

Spring Skirts and French Apologies

I’ve been on a little spring break since Easter.  Not the kind of spring break where you get drunk on cheap wine and run around naked on the beach with people you wouldn’t be caught dead with fully dressed and sober.  That’s for students who have many more springs ahead of them that they can afford to waste. 


No, at my age, each sip of spring is precious, and I can’t afford to waste a drop.  Wait…..did I just say “at my age?”  OMG, I swore I would never say that, and I’ve been saying it more and more lately.  Yikes!

O.K., this is NOT where I was headed with this.  I wanted to talk about spring skirts – I’ll get to that.

Easter Weekend in New York – a Wedding and a Parade

There’s something special about Easter weekend in New York, and this one will be extra special.  On Saturday, we will be attending the wedding of a lovely couple. 



It will be an intimate affair – just the bride and groom and about 4,000 of their closest friends.

What Is Je ne Sais Quoi?

In my previous post, I linked to an interview I did for my hometown newspaper entitled Finding Your Je ne Sais Quoi.  The interviewer, Anne Neborak, an award-winning photojournalist, is also a former high school classmate of mine, so we had fun working together and catching up on the intervening years. 

In Finding Your Je ne Sais Quoi, I talked about what I see as the difference between fashion and style and how I learned from Mme Mère the importance of the little detail that adds a certain je ne sais quoi to a classic outfit



I’m happy to say that the interview generated a lot of positive feedback and some interesting questions from my readers.  Here are three of my favorites:

Finding Your Je Ne Sais Quoi

At the risk of tooting my own horn, here goes -- Toot! Toot!




I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed for my hometown newspaper, The Delaware County News, by a former high school classmate, Anne Neborak.  Anne has gone on to a wonderful career as an award-winning photojournalist.  

After catching up with our lives 46 years after graduation (YIKES!!) and marveling at the differences between then and now, which are, to borrow one of Donald Trump’s favorite words – “HUGE” – we got down to business.
