This is no ordinary robe, no ordinary robe (sing in Sade voice). Yes! I'm wearing a robe but this is no ordinary robe! It's a vintage rose print robe that's lined with red velour that will keep you warm and cozy while turning heads for many reasons.

Can you believe we're in the last month of 2016 already? I feel as though the year flew by and now Christmas is just a few weeks away. Before you know it we'll be ringing in the new year!

For my second Halloween DIY (see first here)  this year, I decided to head back to the 60's and channel the lovely Sophia Loren from the 1966 Technicolor comedy thriller Arabesque

Loren is an award winning Italian film actress who was declared as "one of the world cinema's treasures." Sophia who recently turned 82 years old in September is as glamorous as ever and recently starred in Dolce Gabbana's new fragrance film. 

I like to refer to the scene I used from Arabesque as the pink towel & toile scene. Recreating the look is easy as pie. If you've never watched this film take a look here and skip to the 14:05 mark to view the pink towel & toile decor glam.

Oh how I love the Summer! I never want to say goodbye to warm temperatures, tropical prints and frozen drinks but even when I cry into my cocktail glass, the seasons never listen to me!

We're now a month away from Fall and I'm trying to make peace (kinda, sorta) and simply embrace the transition because I really don't have many quarrels with Fall except it indicates #WinterIsComing and that's when my tantrums are amplified. 

During the early days of Fall, I enjoy that you can get away with wearing some of your Summer pieces, especially  pants and maxi dresses. Today I'm sharing a transitional look that can be worn on a cool Summer evening or early Fall day.

Valentine's Day is this Sunday and 'A Sunday Kind Of Love' has been stuck in my head all week long. I love Etta James' music and think this song is perfect for our upcoming day celebrating love.  Etta's music spanned several genres including blues, soul, rock and roll, jazz and gospel and she had a way of making it her own.

See how Etta's music inspires my Vintage Valentine look.

KD Style Sets - Golden Globes Inspired

I created these Polyvore style sets last week and decided to publish them in time for the Golden Globes.

If you follow me on Instagram you'll see how much I love vintage and retro-inspired looks.
