Guest Blogger: Is the Tie Dead?

There has been much conversation about the death of the tie and how we don’t need to wear ties any more.  Some will tell you that they are not only worn less and less, but that the male dress code has changed to the point where ties are not necessary. I totally disagree.  True, starting […]

Guest Blogger: The Dinner Jacket

To truly stand out at your festive holiday events, consider the dinner jacket. When you hear the words dinner jacket, what images come to mind? To me, the dinner jacket captures the essence of a more romantic era of 1930’s Hollywood. In the golden film era the dinner jacket  became synonymous with elegance, confidence and […]

My minimalist journey

Having access to a plethora of clothing, accessories, and home goods at perfect prices can be dangerous. How do you know when you have enough? At which point will one’s overstuffed closet actually, truly burst? I don’t have the answer to those questions, but I ask them on a regular basis. I’m preparing for some […]

Fashionista Friday: Morgan

Goodwill Halloween costumes: 90s favorites

Today’s Halloween costumes that are oh-so-easy to find at Goodwill come courtesy of some “classic” entertainment from the 1990s. Remember that if your costume du jour is a character with real-life tendencies (meaning, they were not a super hero or a talking animal), you’ll probably be able to find all the components of your ensemble […]

So cool, Cole Haan

If I’m looking for shoes at my local Goodwill, you can be sure that I’m on the lookout for Cole Haan pumps. Lucky for you, this pair didn’t fit me. Time to pass them on to a lucky online shopper! I’ve always admired Cole Haan shoes for their classic style, durability, and above all, comfort. […]
