My Work Ensemble

As many of you know, I am a teacher; I teach designing and just recently, I got a position to teach English as a foreign language. My everyday look is not traditional or conservative; you could say, I keep my look fresh, chic, creative but yet professional.

Here are a few ways to dress chic, fun and keep it work appropriate:

I am coveting these yoga pants for work from www.betabrand women's pants page .  

J.Crew has also some great finds.

 Fashion at the work place should be effortless so keep it fun but chic!

To Buy a High Luxury Item or Not to Buy?

For many years, I have been a loyal customer to the "Coach" brand. However, in the last few months, I have been coveting a beautiful handbag from Louis Vuitton. Yes, Louis Vuitton!
 Now that I am well into my 40's, I have a dire need to get a high luxury handbag. For me it is an investment item that I can have for a long time but before I buy anything of this magnitude, I have been doing my research.
I have been reviewing the bag via the Louis Vuitton community on cyber space.
The bags are gorgeous, the history behind the name and the product is iconic.
It really seems like a bag that will stand the test of time.
Check out my favorites:
