Chanel Couture 2014

Hello, With chilly temperatures in full force. It was a breath of fresh air  at   Karl Lagerfeld's couture fashion show in Paris  and a true  tribute to Ms Coco !  Karl still manages to bring the historic charm of Chanel to the runway. Love the  youthful black trim and tied bows.  The short tops are seen accentuating the tiny waists.  Guess we better get to work on our abs.  I attached a link from vogue review of the collection.  Have a great day!

Winter Whites

Hello sweet people!  Going into your closet for winter gear today?  Why not add some whites to give the winter blues a boost.   "White  psychology"  is said to  stimulate the senses and hints of new beginnings.  New Year, new beginnings!  see below

 Quote for the day!
One kind word can warm three winter months!

Have a safe and happy day!

White is color at its most complete and pure, the color of perfection. The color meaning of white is purity, innocence, wholeness and completion.
In color psychology white is the color of new beginnings, wiping the slate clean, so to speak. It is the blank canvas waiting to be written upon. While white isn't stimulating to the senses, it opens the way for the creation of anything the mind can conceive.
White contains an equal balance of all the colors of the spectrum, representing both the positive and negative aspects of all colors. Its basic feature is equality, implying fairness and impartiality, neutrality and independence. It is interesting to note that babies come into the world with a perfect balance of white, ready to imprint their lives with all the colors of the spectrum (hopefully!) from all their life experiences.
White is totally reflective, awakening openness, growth and creativity. You can't hide behind it as it amplifies everything in its way.
The color white is cleanliness personified, the ultimate in purity!! This is why it is traditionally worn by western brides, and the reason why doctors wear white jackets.
White is a color of protection and encouragement, offering a sense of peace and calm, comfort and hope, helping alleviate emotional upsets. It creates a sense of order and efficiency, a great help if you need to declutter your life.
White offers an inner cleansing and purifying of your thoughts, emotions and, ultimately, your spirit, refreshing and strengthening your entire energy system.
While there are very few negative connotations to white, particularly in western culture, too much white can be cold, isolating and empty. It implies a feeling of sterility, detachment and disinterest, providing little stimulation for the senses.
In other cultures it is traditionally related to death and mourning. In these cultures death usually means the end of one life and the beginning of another, moving forward to a new life, so the color psychology meaning of new beginnings still holds.
White may indicate the completion of a cycle in your life - you may find you have a desire for white clothing or white in your surroundings at a time when you are moving in a new direction in your life - for example, planning an overseas trip for the first time, or moving house after a long time in one place, or in seeking a new relationship or a new career direction. 
Many people use white as a recall of their youth and innocence. It reminds them of a time when their lives were easier and less complicated.
White is used in many medical practices such as dental surgeries and doctors' rooms as an indication of cleanliness and efficiency; however it also can give the feeling of sterility and coldness of emotions and may lead patients to think the doctor or dentist won't relate to them on an emotional and personal level. It can be too clinical and sterile.
Too much white can cause feelings of isolation and emptiness; it can be too pristine and immaculate, making you feel as though you can't make a move for fear of upsetting it or creating a mess.

Oh Golden Globes!

Jennifer Lawrence dress was From Dior  2013 couture collection

Hello, Who watched the Golden Globes??  Don't you love watching the "E" channel red carpet coverage  with Guiliana Rancic! There were so many  pretty dresses and yes, some we scratch our heads!
I'm sure Joan Rivers will have plate full of script for "fashion police."

The  pressure to look good on the red carpet and still enjoy the event is a tough a job! We get to sit on our comfy sofa and watch the train of actors and actresses and critique the crowd.  Such great entertainment and we realize that show biz is not just a pretty dress, talented hard work  goes into making all those films and keeping us entertained not only in the on screen but on the red carpet!
