Urban | Utility

Urban | Utility

Fashion + Sense with Bronwen Llewellyn Today’s blog post is brought to you by the letter “m.”  M is for messenger, a fabulous unisex utility bag that can be a purse, a satchel, a shopping tote, or a briefcase.  Since the messenger tends to lean toward the masculine persuasion, it is often difficult to find [...]

Scent of | a Woman

Scent of | a Woman

Fashion + Sense with Bronwen Llewellyn Photo courtesy of Hermes.com Once a year or so Hermes debuts a new fragrance, and I inevitably attempt to fall in love with it.  This year that fragrance is Voyage.  A unisex fragrance, Voyage is the scent of places to come, rather than places we have been.  While Un Jardin sur la [...]

Good Things | For Fall

Good Things | For Fall

Fashion + Sense with Bronwen Llewellyn The Nordstrom anniversary sale means we are officially halfway through the year, and new fall items are slowly making their way onto the shelves.  And into my shopping cart.  A few of you know that I made a New Year’s resolution to stop buying makeup that I don’t need.  [...]

Mad | World

Fashion + Sense with Bronwen Llewellyn I was asked to write this weekend on something inspired by the fashion in preview clips from A Single Man.  Check out this video link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aypyJtHzC70 courtesy of YouTube.

Saturday Evening Post with Bronwen Llewellyn Every day my mailbox (e-mail and otherwise) is bombarded with the latest in beauty products.  NARS this, Benefit that, and a thousand items that promise to make you beautiful, fix your flaws, and take your money.  Sometimes I can resist, but eventually something gets the best of me and [...]

Blue | Period

Fashion + Sense with Bronwen Llewellyn The internet has begun to blossom with hints of fall, and for me it cannot come too soon.  I love everything about the fall…crisp air, changing leaves, and cooler weather.  And until it arrives, I have to settle for cooling colors and bits of fall fashion.  First on today’s [...]

Style Challenge With Bronwen Llewellyn Ladies and gentlemen, I am supplementing my usual “Saturday Evening Post” on fashion with a little design bonus.  While perusing the web, I happened upon From The Right Bank and her “What’s Your Style in One Picture Challenge.”  Could I do it?  Definite my style in a single photograph?  Well, it [...]

Summer | Bling

Summer | Bling

Fashion + Sense with Bronwen Llewellyn After the week I had, it seems like a little “pick me up” is in order, and what better way to spice up the summer than to add a little touch of bling to your wardrobe. I’m not going to advocate for any gold sarongs and, as a woman [...]

Symbiotic | Style

Fashion + Sense with Bronwen Llewellyn This week I was asked to write a little piece about what home means to me.  And while I want to lie to you, my readers, I have never been a great liar so I am giving it to you straight.  What home means to me right at this [...]

Faux | Pas

Faux |  Pas

Fashion + Sense with Bronwen Llewellyn Yesterday I ventured to the theater with my husband to watch the long awaited Sex and the City 2.  Since movie reviews are as plentiful, I will leave that to those better equipped to pass judgment on such things.  What I wanted was a dose of fashion and fun, [...]

Little | Luxuries

Fashion + Sense with Bronwen Llewellyn Today I saw what I can only call a woman wearing a cross-body bag made to look like an electric guitar.  And not a cool guitar inspired bag like the one Hogan came out with several years back…I mean a photograph of an electric guitar superimposed on cheap black [...]

Teriyaki | Chicken

LBV welcomes Culinary Conversations with Brian Brooks… Chickity China the Chinese Chicken. I love Chinese food.  The problem is the buffet.  All the spoons and twice as many unwashed hands.  The whole proposition gives me a complex.  So when Pei Wei won’t do I bust out the wok.  And you can too!  I made my [...]

Little Wallet | Big Trouble

Little Wallet | Big Trouble

Saturday Evening Fashion + Sense… With Bronwen Llewellyn Remember when I brought up the whole “buy quality, cry once” theory?  Of course you do, it was only three weeks ago.  The flaw in this plan is that there are so many quality items available for purchase!  A few months ago I saw a picture of a [...]

Saturday’s Fashionista Guest Blogger -Bronwen Llewellyn Like many women, I have had an ongoing obsession with finding *the* right pair of shoes for as long as I can remember. This stems both from a love of fashion and an ankle broken in four places my junior year of high school. The upshot: No $500+ Manolo [...]
