    It’s hot out there! So cool off at the mall and take advantage of the sales that have started and will continue into August at area retailers. Here are five summer fashion trends in full force.     Feathers – Fashion pays tribute to a Native American influence this season. Feathers faux and real have found their way onto […]

  • Red, White & Blueberries…

    June 29, 2011 at 4:39 pm

    I just shipped my Mom, Pat Lopp, off to Texas for the week armed with in-flight essentials: healthy snacks (Kashi granola bars, baggies of nuts and Chex mix and Crystal Light packets to fill her water bottle), a layering piece (cardigan sweater) and trusty hand sanitizer. I also made sure she had her sunglasses and cell […]

  • Traveling In Style…Part II

    June 17, 2011 at 6:52 pm

    Traveling In Style…Part II One of last week’s Chapelboro Insiders shared a travel tip that I inadvertently omitted from my list. She keeps her toiletries bag packed with samples and smaller versions of make-up, so she is always ready to go. I too try to keep trial size products stocked and travel-sized bottles filled, so that area […]

    Packing Perils Summer vacation season is upon us. By car, by plane, by boat, by train….you’re bound to be headed somewhere this summer. That means you have the daunting task of packing ahead of you, which takes time, energy, planning and decision-making skills. Oh, the agony of accessorizing every outfit! And how will I know what I’m doing every […]

    This weekend officially kicks off the summer travel season.  The highways and skyways are full of beach, mountain and Vegas-bound folks ready to get their summer started.  I had a shot at spending the next four days in paradise.  Two weeks ago my friend, Julie Paddison, asked me if I wanted to head to Turks […]

  • Closet Cleansing…Steps to De-Clutter and Feel Better

    May 21, 2011 at 5:55 pm

    When was the last time you REALLY surveyed your wardrobe? Last season? Last summer? The last time you moved five years ago? Confess! Your closet needs a barium enema and you know it. I’ll be the first one to admit that mine does. I avoid closet cleansing like the plague. There’s always something more pressing […]

  • Fashion Rules Are Meant To Be Broken…

    May 13, 2011 at 11:57 pm

    When Molly Buckley interviewed me on WCHL this week she asked a familiar burning fashion question. “Once and for all, when can I start wearing white?” Good question Molly. Do I give the Emily Post “by the fashion rule book” response or the answer with the regional twist?   Molly got my wardrobe wheels spinning. (Thanks for planting the seed […]

  • Talk Derby To Me…

    May 6, 2011 at 6:36 pm

    My favorite spring sporting event has to be the Kentucky Derby. What stands out most during this historic horse race is difficult to decide–the sleek and athletic thoroughbreds, the diminutive yet wiry jockeys in their colorful silks, the thrill of the race itself or the chance for a long-shot filly to come from behind and win […]

  • Royal Wedding Fever…

    You know you’ve got it. Even if you don’t have the fever, you know that you’ll be one of the billion people across the world viewing what is hyped to be the social event of the century. Thanks to modern technology we don’t have to get up at the pre-dawn hour of 4:00 a.m. Friday […]
