Fancy Pants

6 Feb

Hello everyone,

I must say I love fashion, however I have to be careful with the trends due to my age, and although I am loving all the pants with prints, I have to be selective because some can look a little too youthful so I settled for these which I think I will be able to wear for several years, and the best part was that they were on sale!

Sunnies in the white snow are just as essential as in the sun, as the white snow can be very bright on the eyes.

Fox Fur

Hello Jewels,

One of the first essentials I bought when I moved to Michigan from California was a coat(s), fur coats, a red coat, a green, etc., while I lived in California I was able to get away with jackets all year-long, however when I moved to Michigan it was a different story.

After the holidays probably the only thing that gets me through winter is being able to wear my coats, I can’t think of anything more chic then a great-coat.

Eclectic Attic

23 Aug

Hello there Precious Pearls,

Most of us shop at them, you know the places where we find our little hidden jewels, “consignment stores.” My favorite is “Eclectic Attic in Plymouth Michigan.”

As soon as I walk in my heart begins to pump faster because I have no idea what I will leave with. I don’t feel like this about many places.


They carry the essentials; contemporary pieces, as well as one of kind vintage couture which is where I stop first.

One of the many vintage dresses I have purchased, and another one here for about $30.00.


And of course they carry accessories, i.e., genuine designer sunglasses, genuine watches, genuine hand bags, etc., I didn’t purchase these glasses there, but they carry the real deal.


But one of the reasons why this is my favorite consignment store is because they also carry antique furniture, and paintings. This place very much lives up to its name. The owner is extremely helpful, personable, and looks as if she would work for Vogue, with her defined features, red lipstick, and shiny black bob. She very much tempts me into cutting my hair into a bob again.

I have rarely left without a purchase.

Jewels, where do you shop for those hidden jewels? We would love to know so that if we ever make it to your neck of the woods we know where to shop?

Until next time,
Monica
