Covid Consumerism

18 Sep

Now, that some people are venturing out, I’m interested in your shopping habits during these unusual times. Here are my purchases: food, puzzles, comfy clothes (yoga pants, etc.), two new sofas, new towels, hand lotion and face cream. And, yes, MASKS!

I’ve ventured to the local mall, just to feel normal.  It’s not busy, but at least I saw some people with shopping bags. We have a new store Amazon 4, which I will write about in a future post. So, do you have any purchases lately? Please share.

One of my favorite blogs is Lark & Linen.  Here are some of Lark & Linen’s cozy picks. Please click here for a description.

A Tender Moment

21 Nov

Diptic-3

Motown fashionistas celebrated the 20th anniversary of  the boutique Tender in Birmingham, Mich. Sisters Cheryl and Karen Daskas have an eye for style in shoes, handbags, jewelry and women’s apparel. They introduce emerging and established designers with panache. The story carries all the exclusive designers like Miu Miu, Lanvin and Jason Wu. But, I love it when they introduce an upcoming young designer who is featured the very next month in Vogue magazine. Here are some snapshots from their anniversary party held on Nov. 20th at the store.
