Playing with skirts

March is here, which means New York Fashion Week is now only a figment of our imagination and hopefully spring is right around the corner. Although New York was showcasing its fall 2015 looks, there were lots of variations on skirts, with one common thread - shorter didn't seem to be better.

The travel bug

Yesterday Shaun, one of our bloggers, touched on the multiple ways we can "splurge" on luxury items. Not all splurges have to be physical goods however. Actress, Penelope Cruz, chooses calories instead of luxury goods. Others love the costly vacation.

For me, the chance to experience a new culture, eat exotic food, and peek into others lives is priceless.

It's Time to splurge

We all have moments of indecision: should I go out on a limb and splurge on a luxury item/activity or should I stay on the straight-and-narrow? There’s an argument on both sides. It’s a good idea to be budgetary-minded, but it’s also smart to break out every so often and buy or do something you really crave.

For most of us, our attitude towards money comes from our parents. Author Suze Orman claims that our “money personality” is heavily influenced by our upbringing. Did you have an allowance that you were told to spend wisely? As a teenager, were you dying for a part-time job so you could earn extra dollars that you were allowed to keep? Full disclosure: I sold goldfish in Woolworth’s when I was 15-years-old.

Let's talk selfies

One word that’s currently in the air everywhere is “selfie”. If people aren’t saying it, they’re doing it.

The dictionary meaning is: a self-portrait taken on a smartphone and, as Simon Kuper writes in his column in the Financial Times of 12/20/14, it is now penetrating languages worldwide.

The Weekend Getaway: Packing for Cuba

Last week I posted about my upcoming weekend getaway to Cuba. It’s actually a five-day getaway and I intend to soak up the warm sunshine every single day! What a welcome break from the snow and cold in the Northeast.

Personally, I don’t know anyone who has been to Cuba, so packing for this trip has proven quite the challenge. Should I pack nice sundresses or are shorts and tees more appropriate? Are high heels the best nighttime option or will I look out of place?

We all see clothing mistakes on the street, in our local stores or even in our own offices.
