Come on… Celebrities Holding Garage Sales? Now Those Would Really Have to Be Be “Divalicious” Events!

June 18th, 2015

By Barbara Tobias NABBW’s Thifting Associate What do Barb Tobias (The “Thrift Talk” Diva), Tori Spelling and Carol Burnett have in common? We all have yard sales!  Yes, it is true.  Six degrees of separation be damned!  I’m in good stead. I was stunned to learn, after reading numerous reports on People.com, Omg.com, and Thefrisky.com, that real celebrities were raising serious money through holding all types of sales; garage sales, tag sales, yard sales, porch sales, divorce sales, downsizing sales, moving sales…and are now moving into the corridors of high-rise apartment buildings... Read More

Going On Vacation and Want Stylish Comfort?

April 6th, 2011

Going On Vacation and Want Stylish Comfort? By Sherrie Mathieson NABBW’s Fashion and Style Expert ….I\’m beginning to think about my own plans that may include warm temperatures and tons of walking. I, and my clients still wear short sleeves at times, but it\’s nice to find lightweight items that mix easily and give coverage. It\’s all about comfort, ease and I still want a very stylish appearance. The trick is finding the right items, and then packing a few lightweight bags, and great accessories (including sunglasses) that will give these key pieces diversity. Sherrie... Read More

Schuman\’s New Book, “The Sartorialist” Is a Fun Read, Thoughtful Gift By Sherrie Mathieson NABBW’s Fashion Expert I received a thoughtful gift just after the holidays! The timing for this stylish surprise was perfect as the new year begins. It was a book that I would have certainly given mention to in my “Get Inspired!” section of  “Forever Cool” where I note other books that compliment the information I tried to infuse into my first publication — now (unbelievably!) six years ago.  The Sartorialist, by Scott Schuman was not yet out then... Read More

December 15th, 2010

Style: Keeping Covered Yet Gorgeous for Dressy Holiday Parties By Sherrie Mathieson NABBW’s Fashion Expert I know dressing for holiday events can be a challenge if you don\’t want lots of skin bared. I have shown in the past how wearing a dressy fabric shirt style –paired with dressy slacks, long skirt (full or slim) –with great accessories– can look great. Talbot\’s November catalog recently showed a very affordable long black ruffled (yet slim) black skirt with a dressy black shirt that was gorgeous– and a “cousin” to the high end outfit (sequined... Read More

“Six Easy Pieces”, Shopping Diet is All About Less-is-More

September 22nd, 2010

As a style consultant I believe it\’s my job to be the arbiter of worthwhile purchases. “To buy,or not to buy?” that is the question. At the start, all my clients need a core wardrobe which includes a variety of accessories ( bags and shoes). But after several years of perfecting and adding to the original “six easy pieces” (it\’s really more like 20 ) with lots more detail (jewelry etc) we always reach a point when we recognize that we are now acquiring beautiful things for the sheer fun of it , for the thrill of having something new (and hopefully different... Read More
