Apologies to everyone I bored with my pathetic lamentations that my favorite store in Santa Monica was closing and my sensational saleswoman Barbara H. was leaving for a new venture. It’s not like I took to my bed for a few days but it was close.

My relationship with Barbara was conducted virtually but with such glee.  She had a brilliant eye for quirky and timeless pieces.   I trusted her taste completely. I gave her the go-ahead to challenge me to evolve my style so I would feel confident and modern.  She wanted me to look and feel fantastic.  Thank god we never discussed anti-aging as I wasn’t interested.  Of course I’m aging but I want to do it with imagination and wit.  Barbara got that.

Find a store that carries beautiful pieces and develop a relationship with a salesperson who, like Barbara, is inventive, creative and passionate about helping you look fabulous. It’s not an indulgence.  It’s just a very clever way to evolve.

Some say she's tart and arch, but she knows fabulous when she sees it, and that's what she writes about. Get her book, The Essentials of Fabulous, on Amazon. More about me...
