Pretty in Pleats

Call me old-fashioned, but I just love pleats. They are so sophisticated and chic. They are also universally flattering for every body type. This is true! So have some fun, and you will always be pretty in pleats.

Go for the Gold

Gold jewelry is one of the hottest trends of this fall. Don’t believe me? Then check out all of the magazines, runway shows, and the other fashion blogs. Gold jewelry is just so much fun to wear and it brightens any outfit. Just a touch or two of gold is all you need to sport a classic and sophisticated look. Still not convienced? Then ask the Greek Gods and Goddesses that adore this precious metal.
