The big reveal

It’s time to start thinking about how you’ll look on the beach this summer. Most of us tackle this issue by saying to ourselves, “Gotta think about losing weight.” If this applies to you, then this is the time to get moving. Don’t wait until Memorial weekend because, if it’s done correctly, losing weight takes a certain amount of time.

Great day at the beach

WHERE TO START? If you don’t go to a gym, perhaps it’s a good idea to think about signing up. A gym doesn’t work for me because I can’t fit it into my life. But if you decide to go regularly (the gals in my office prefer early morning) you’ll set up an exercise schedule and that’s good. (I walk a total of 30 blocks going to-and-from my office every day.)

SET A GOAL This includes both a weight and time goal. Look at the calendar and say, “Okay, X number of lbs. in X number of days.” Keep both of these numbers in your head and periodically repeat them. Losing weight is 90% between the ears.

DIETING IS MENTAL? Yes. And I can say this because I just lost 40 lbs with no home delivery of diet meals. No counting calories. No fancy diet books with endless charts for keeping track of one’s progress. And no punishing three-day juice diets.

KEEP IT SIMPLE Here’s how I did it. I decided to eliminate three things in order to lose weight: a) desserts, b) bread, c) liquor (which was mainly white wine at dinner with a Screwdriver or Bloody Mary every so often).

Guess which was the hardest to forego? BREAD! The other two were relatively easy.

KEEP IT A SECRET This is very important: do not tell your spouse, boyfriend or your mother, that you are on a diet. This will hinder your progress. Talking about food and calories dilutes the result. Once the weight is off everyone will notice.

DON’T FLAUNT IT Where I work, one young lady wore a calorie counter on her upper arm that everyone could see. It had a wide, black strap so, at first, we thought she was in mourning. Of course, this became a topic of conversation. She didn’t lose an ounce.

TREAT YOURSELF If you are absolutely craving a no-no food, go ahead and have it because you don’t want to feel as if you’re punishing yourself. In my case, once I bit into a delicious slice of panelle (bread) I immediately calmed down. That was it. I stopped thinking about bread.

IT’S ALL WORTH IT Once you’ve actually taken off the weight you’ll feel terrific. So reward yourself. Buy a great pair of jeans that fit perfectly or a new bathing suit. You’ll love how you look.

MAY WE SUGGEST…

Check out our reversible camisole with wide straps in three colors or our spaghetti strap camisole in 13 stylish colors. Both are a great way to show off your new shape.

The Invasion of the Brit Tabloid

October 22, 2020

I just read an article that sounded – to me at least – like “a canary in a coal mine” or an early warning of danger. This piece, written by Joe Pompeo, appeared in the May 2020 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with the title “The British Tabloid Invasion” and a subtitle that read, “How the Daily Mail is conquering American gossip.”

Apparently the good old U.S. is a nation of “not great” sleepers. Really? And I thought I was the only one! According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention it was revealed that one out of three Americans are chronically sleep-deprived. Yikes!

Magical Hermès

October 06, 2020

I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.

My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.

Bodywear

We use Italian lingerie sizing  for our bodywear and items tend to run small.

Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please contact us. We're happy to help you get it right.
