The Weekend . . .

Dec 16, 2011

The wonderful feeling of knowing that the majority of my gifts are purchased and ready to be wrapped makes the holiday season a little less frazzling and all the more pleasurable. My hope this weekend is to be sitting by the fire at my home, similar to the image Inslee depicts above (the artist behind my logo and the creator behind the holiday cards I just purchased!) with my dogs to keep me company, hot tea (or wine) to sip and savor, and reading and writing material galore to get lost in.

How about you? What will you be up to this weekend?  Sometimes we forget that we need to slow down and recharge even when it seems we have no time during this busy time of year.  However, in order to feel and look our best during all of the occasions we so look forward to this season, we must slow down and catch our breath.  Even if it’s just for an hour, take a time-out and enjoy some “me time”.

This past week on The Simply Luxurious Life some beautiful pre-fall fashions appeared yet again from a designer who can’t seem to make a wrong turn, as well as the wrapping up of the three part series on saving time and so much more.  Have a look:

*Why Not . . . Save Time? Part Trois

*The Perk of Thoughtfulness and Generosity

*Zac Posen – Pre-Fall 2012

*The Country Cooking of Italy – Book Review

*Winter Style Inspiration

*The iconic (oldest model for Vogue and owning every inch of it) Meryl Streep – Vogue US – January 2012

Have an amazing weekend and be sure to design some time for yourself, no matter what it entails.  Until Monday, bonjour.

The Weekend . . .

Sep 16, 2011

New York Fashion Week is officially over until the fall collections are revealed in February and I must say, I have been all aflutter with fashion dreams and taking in all the fabulous looks.  You may have noticed that the blog has been overflowing with fantastic simply luxurious collections; however, amidst the many styles have been the posts you regularly find here on The Simply Luxurious Life:

*Look for What you Want
*Why Not . . . Gather the Essentials for Life?
*Style Inspiration for the streets of New York City
*A book review for navigating our modern day world – Everyday Etiquette
*Michelle Williams – Vogue US – October 2011

Thrilled to have been spotlighted on Glam’s Fashion website for Carolina Herrera’s Spring 2012 collection post – click here to view. 


Take a look at Laura U Mag’s just released Sept/Oct issue and if you’re still taking advantage of the fall 2011 collections in the stores, take a look my article 2011 Fall Fashion Trends on page 42.
