This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

Red, White and Blue

February, 21, 2014

In honor of our USA Olympians, for Fashion Friday, I’m pouring on patriotic colors.


In theory, Theory is a great way to go. My dress and jacket are both by this brand.


The dress stuns solo and is a great twirler…so even if you’re not an Olympic figure skater, you can spin in style.


For a pop of cobalt, I chose jewelry by Kenda Scott, who has burst onto the designing scene.


And every fashionable female knows you can’t go wrong with a pair of Christian Louboutin heels.


Here’s where to find this patriotic look from head to toe: Kendra Scott cobalt necklace and bracelet, Theory jacket and dress, Christian Louboutin heels, and cobalt clutch (similar).

A Last Word on the Olympics. We have three more days to enjoy them and we’re proud of all our athletes—but I am especially impressed with how two of them handled difficult situations. Shaun White was expected to remain king of the snowboard halfpipe, but crashed. Commentators blamed the notoriously poor conditions, but Shaun warmly congratulated the winner and didn’t make an excuse.

Figure-skater Jeremy Abbott fell during his short program, hit the wall, and laid on the ice in agony. As he cautiously stood up – in so much pain, that he was sure he couldn’t go on – he heard the cheering crowd and thought, “I’m finishing this program… I don’t care what happens…I’m not giving up this moment.” He turned in a beautiful performance.
