Shopping for the ?New You?

Image
With the new year underway, we start thinking about new styles, new colors, and a focus on ourselves, and improvements we can make to feel good and look good. This week’s Shopping with Bette focuses on shopping for the “new you.”

Start with what can make you look trim. Next, a new hairdo, then all new make-up. Now you are ready to head out to the many shops and create a new wardrobe for the “new you.” Brights are in this year, along with lots of laser cut fabrics. Accessories are big, to a...

Add a splash of color to your wardrobe and home this summer

Image
Summer represents color to me, and during those months, the heat is so intense it creates the desire for very colorful clothing, to match the feel of our environment. In the past stores were filled with everything white , and now the fashion designers have created lightweight fabric in bold colors. White has become boring as a full look, and people like the soft flowing colorful fabrics that clothes are made of today. Everyone likes choices. I find in Palm Springs in particular, that color is a...

Something for your design needs

Image
The desert is full of collectable show rooms, consignment stores, antique stores, vintage and mid modern shops, and the following stores fall into the various categories for your design needs, or gifts or collectables. You will be amazed at the business that is being generated through these establishments. Each place is like a museum, and each one has their own specialty. I must say we are the Mecca of collectables in our nine desert cities. The shop owners I have met, are wonderful people to ta...

Discover what awaits you at Westfield Mall

Image
The heat and smoke from the fires has filled the air and has caused customers to put shopping on the back burner. It doesn’t have to be that way, as you can head to the all enclosed, all air conditioned, Westfield mall in Palm Desert. Westfield is currently sponsoring 101 days of Summer, each day they have an event for kids, teens and adults. I often hear people say that there is nothing to do at the mall. Why not do what I have been doing, which is discover and explor the Westfield mall. It i...

Good shopping for this summer!

Image
The heat is rising in the desert and the prices are going lower, because many of our stores during the off season are delivering offers one can’t refuse. One store said each week the prices go lower. Another store owner reported “I own everything and it is my choice to offer deals to customers.” Shopping and getting out in the heat truly is a challenge for you, and certainly for our local store owners. The challenge ends with some store owners closing for the summer. There are real reasons...

Shopping gives you a chance to get out of the house this summer and explore

Image
I know it’s Hot! out there, and that slows up shopping, but think of ways to have your friends go with you. That way you have a different focus as you are busy talking, and the heat is not as oppressive. The stores are open all year now and they pay high electric bills to bring you comfort. It’s like saying thank you in advance, and it would be nice to go visit them and see what treasures they have. Shopping gets you out of the house and gives you a chance to explore.

On that note as a special...

Add some glamour to your Summer wardrobe

Image
The Summer wardrobe is definitely here! All a woman needs is a great bathing suit, a cover up and a smart looking pair of sunglasses, and a cool pair of sandals and she is good to go. On the subject of “Go”, there is a shop to discover in each city to fit the wardrobe bill. Of course it requires you, getting out of the pool and visiting these great stores. I always say, meet the owner and get to know them, and let them get to know you as well. Why? Because down the road you might have a s...
