Dramatic Sleeves Headed into this week with dramatic sleeves and a smile. You know I am not one to shy away from mixing black and blue and love the Summer feels of this look. Also what is more beautiful than a wall full ofBougainvillea?? Excited to be taking a quick trip to Palm Springs this week and will hope to get a full dose of bougies and other desert blooms. To all my friends in Houston and Florida my heart has been heavy this weekend tracking the storm and seeing the devastation. For those still looking to help out you can donate to Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund here and to Hurricane IrmaRelief Fund here. Also today my heart goes to NYC and all of those affected by the terror on 9/11. You are forever in our hearts. All reminders of how we need to be kinder to one another and come together with love and compassion for those around us everyday. We need to support each other lift each other up and fight together always in both times of trouble and times of good. Lets all start our day with compassion and love for one another. dress: c/o storets (similar) / bag: nannacay / shoes: givenchy (similar) / shades: elizabeth and james shop this look: The post Dramatic Sleeves appeared first on eat.sleep.wear. – Fashion & Lifestyle Blog by Kimberly Pesch.
Source by : eatsleepwear.comFashion Mom' s Style Style How to Buy a Woman a Handbag A shopping guide for the clueless.I've been told I'm hard to shop for. I get it, who wants to shop for a professional shopper? That would be like me offering professional tax accounting services to my mom, the CPA. (That sounds totally illegal, by the way, but you get my point.)But then I realized by way of interaction with essentially every man I've ever encountered (bosses, hairdressers, fathers of friends, dudes at dinner parties) that this isn't a consequence of my choice of occupation; this is about the intimidation factor that comes along with being a lady. Most men are just straight-up clueless or terrified about making purchases that will please the females in their life—be it their wife, sister, or "no label" companion. It seems they're happy to spend, but they want to do so smartly and successfully.The item I am asked most often from men for shopping advice on also happens to be the most beloved of all in a lady's wardrobe: the handbag. To which my first response is, "Well, is this purchase for purpose or pleasure—does she need it or just want it?"You see, the first thing you should know, sirs, is that there is a difference between the versatile monstrosities we sling across our shoulders to help us schlep around our day-to-day necessities and the pretty little things we can fit in the palm of our hand when we change into a Cushnie et Ochs bodycon dress after dark. There's practical and there's impractical, and both make great gifts.So, I've devised a shopping road map/cheat sheet to help get you in and out of the store with the right bag that perfectly suits her taste and lifestyle. You'll see it's really not that hard after all. (Says the professional shopper.)Source: Bloomberg.com
