Bonjourno! If you’ve been following me on Facebook, I don’t need to tell you I’m in Italy. I arrived late last week and have been at the Vicenza Fair looking at some of the most gorgeous pieces I’ve ever seen. I thought you might like a sneak-peek, so here are a few snapshots.
After a long day, our stomachs were empty and our heads were spinning. We found the cutest little place for dinner.
David, Debra, and I are getting our own "mini-fair" at the hotel. We are seeing the new product from some of our key factories before the Gold Fair actually opens tom... Continue Reading

Don't forget—this week's season finale starts at 9pm ET!!!
I can’t believe that this Friday is the Season Finale of The Lisa Robertson Show. I swear it seems like just last week we were starting and now it’s almost over! Although I’m sad to see the season come to an end, I think the break gives us time to make sure that what we have to offer you next season is even better! Always trying to improve. :)
So this week is a "two-fer"! We’re starting at 9pm ET and have 2 hours together so it's two, two, two of everything! Double the designers, d... Continue Reading

It’s interesting that you hear a lot about transparency in politics these days, but where you're actually seeing it is in fashion. It’s the season of the illusion. The unexpected illusion of seeing through fabric or an unexpected cut out. Of course, you don't really want to show anything too shocking. And, this is a trend that can be overdone. However, if you do it well, it can be one of the most beautiful feminine trends we’ve had in quite a while.
The object of this trend is to direct the eye. Like a magician, you can trick people into looking where you want... Continue Reading

What is the easiest way to make your outfit look "high end?” Add a little gold. Gold is an amazing metal and our love of the metal itself has sparked a love of the color. By simply making something the color of the metal, it takes on the status and wealth of the metal itself. So to discover why we love it so much in fashion, I thought we could revisit why we love gold itself.
The earliest gold jewelry dates back over 6,000 years and was found in the Bulgarian town of Varna. From our earliest records and discoveries, it’s something man has had a love affair with. Long before g... Continue Reading

Do you ever wonder why you choose to wear the colors that you wear? Is it strictly fashion, or can color actually be a window to who we are and how we feel? I've been studying the effects of color recently and I have to say, it's VERY interesting.
The minute it’s warm out, the first thing we think of is wearing white. It makes sense. Spring is a new beginning and white is the color of purity, cleansing, and new beginnings. You put on a white blouse or dress and it feels like a brand new day. Next time you feel like you need a new start, reach for the white. Lucky fo... Continue Reading

There are a lot of things about the way we buy clothes that have changed. We used to have separate seasonal wardrobes, but now we look for clothes that work year-round. We used to have "work clothes" and "going out" clothes and "weekend" clothes, but now we look for things that can go anywhere we want to go. Thankfully, there tends to be a more open dress code in many work places. And, we have a lot to do every day. So what it leaves is a lot of room for crossover.
Crossover pieces tend to be layering pieces that can be worn casually or formally. It... Continue Reading

Any day now it’s going to warm up, and we’re going to start thinking of summer vacations. This takes a lot of preparation in the "what am I going to take?" department, doesn’t it? It’s amazing that no matter how concise you think your packing is, you still end up wearing only half of what you brought. One trick to wearing what you pack is to take things you like to wear. I know it seems silly, but if you don't like the T-shirt at home, you probably won't like it on vacation. Finding clothes that you would wear at home and that you can take on vacation is the b...

How many times do we say, "Lead with the bag!". The handbag is the most visible accessory we wear, as it's generally the largest. This week we decided to take four of our "Looks" and decide what the bag for each look "says" about the woman wearing it. Hey, maybe we could rename this blog, "The Bag Whisperer." (I hope you know I'm not serious on that one. )
The first look is called "Get the Scoop" and features an orYANY bag—the smallest of the four we're highlighting. It's sleek, clean, and pared down, but has a signature hardware piece in ... Continue Reading

People's roles in society seem to dictate how they "should" dress. So, as the roles of women in our world have changed, how do you bring an element of femininity into the 21st century? This week for The Lisa Robertson Show, we have a number of pieces that usher in femininity in a modern way.
Lace, for example, is something that used to be only feminine, but now it can be a power statement. When lace is used to make a tailored piece like a pencil skirt or a tailored jacket, it says that you can be in charge and still be a woman….that ... Continue Reading

The constant lament of the vast majority of women is: "If I could only lose a few more pounds!" It doesn't have to be logical or something anyone else sees, but we all seem to feel a more ideal version of ourselves would be a few pounds less. Since there's not a diet that makes us thinner by the time we wake up tomorrow, luckily, we can fake it.
There are tried and true rules for dressing in a way that makes you look slimmer. They're not complicated and they're helpful. I'm sure there are more than what I'm listing here, but this is a good start. ... Continue Reading
