My pick of Covered Perfectly’s winter collection When you are following my blog already for a while, you know that I am a big fan of Covered Perfectly. This brand designs tops and dresses for the body of women in midlife in mind. Thus, when Pauline, who is the founder of the company, asked me […]

Trends from the runway to real life Typically when fashion weeks are around many of us are busy with getting ready for the next season, but not the season thereafter. Well, and there is always a substantial “cut-down” from what one sees on the catwalk to that worn finally in the streets. Even a twenty […]

Not everything is black and white When a year ended and a new year begins, we tend to go down memory lane. We review the great moments, our achievements, but also remember the bad things. The danger is to get get too far in the negative and overlook the postives we experienced. [bctt tweet=”Go down […]

Happy New Year! Another year flew by in like no time. Why is it that time seems to fly so much faster in midlife than it did when we were kids or teenagers eager to move out? Is it because we learned that time is precious and there is less left? Or did we learn […]

November outfits for frigid weather There is this weather that I call “winter in Germany”, i.e. high relative humidity, windy and temperatures just below the freezing point. Gray sky, deep hanging clouds. Depressing. Creepy. It gets to the bones. If I had the choice between weather like that and 20 below (-28.9C), low relative humidity […]

Thanks for asking about the quake I have the sweetest readers in the World! When the news spread about the earthquake in Alaska my email box seemed to flow over. I’m doing ok. The earthquake was in Anchorage which is 1 hour flight southeast of Fairbanks. Nevertheless, we felt the earthquake pretty well. It felt […]

The romantic Moon There is something special about the Moon. Just think about all those songs that have been written and sung. For instance, “Moon River”, or the title song “There is a red Moon rising…” of the movie Major League. The dogs hauling at the Moon. No kitsch love story where the couple is […]

Plaid is a big trend this fall I love tartan or plaid and wool skirts. I still remember the pleated plaid/tartan skirt my Godmother Berta gave me when I was about five. It had extenders and I wore it until second grade. Later in life a plaid pleated skirt was always in my wardrobe. As […]

  What to wear in fall To create a trendy fall style there are several options. The easiest and most expensive one is to buy a whole new fall wardrobe. Doing so would be as crazy as it sounds. Even when you are so rich that you could use $100 bills to light your cigarettes. […]

Buying expensive clothes is not equal to style Many women fall for this misbelief that one can only look stylish when one has the money to buy expensive – read designer – clothes. There is something true about saying [bctt tweet=”Fashion is what you buy, style is what you do with it. #fashionquote”] In today’s […]

Dressing in the transition season is tricky It’s normal to be attached to your summer clothes. Since our childhood, we associate summer with leisure, pleasure, freedom and fun. That were the times, no duties, no homework, just living into the day. Since summer clothes ask for light fabric, they are much less expensive than winter […]

Reminder of the best trends from fall/winter fashion week Fashion week is an interesting beast. First, it’s way ahead of the actual season so manufactures have time to make “wearable” clothes in the trends. Second, when it’s not the “ready-to-wear” kind of clothing, it’s hard to identify the trends. Third, not all of them work […]

Hat love is true love, hat love is for ever Hats of all kinds were all over the runways at fashion week.  Menswear pin-striped suit and fedora, caftans and fedoras, …. It seems to be the It piece of  the coming fall/winter season. [bctt tweet=”Fall must-have: A fedora. #trends”] Ever since I was a little kid, I have […]

Looking for the perfect summer-to-fall transition casual jacket? A piece that was missing in my wardrobe for a long time … probably five years … was a posh casual transitional jacket. In Alaska, the transition season is short, very short, probably less than a month. Leaves start falling in mid-August and flurries start to fly […]
