Just A REAL Woman Wearing Hats … On REALLY Appropriate Occasions!

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

Decided we all REALLY needed a bit of beauté et le plaisir considering that you dear readers so lovingly put up with my ongoing and admittedly at times tedious tutorials for and about those pest loser miscreants. As such I decided [sans full makeup] to model/share a few of my Fall 2012, Winter and Spring 2013 newly acquired couture hats and fascinators. Oh yes, isn’t my REAL ring [also in these photos] gorgeous?

See what wonderful things can happen when a REAL man, like my amazing, wonderful husband loves a REAL woman like moi. I included for edification of foe and friend alike a bit of the history of women’s hats – all here is meant for the enjoyment of  my nearly 5000 blog readers and followers … yes my darlings I REALLY  appreciate your time and effort to read and comment on my writing.

Even as a baby girl, a toddler, a young girl, teen and onward to my adult years – hats were part of wardrobe planning. So many pictures – so many references to this or late well placed hat – for style, for warmth, for protection from the elements – each a denotation of occasions and passing times in my life. This Fall 2012 and Winter, Spring/Summer 2013 fashion show catwalk collections have including, after a bit of absence from the fashion scene, an abundance of hats … some quite extreme and others very practical – all worth considering. So for those of you who REALLY appreciate that style can matter and who like myself know such things are not frivolous – here is hoping you always have a REAL home – a place to hang your hat. Of course, you who follow and support me must surely realize this post is going to be about more than great hats. I hope you find my words entertaining and my thoughts instructive and just find my hat pictures adorable.

As for the others, shall we say poseurs, who are I am told are nearly obsessed with my every word – please dear G-d have them buy a Thesaurus [oops – sorry miscreant “sub-par” under educated losers – you do know what that is – right?]. I suggest that because my REAL “internet ninja” and others protective of me have been routinely sharing your nearly illiterate Facebook postings with hubby and I – from what we can see there is no REAL debate possible as you miscreants so frequently bastardize the English language [definite reference to short “impotent” loser Michigan guy’s trashy mother-in-law thinking he could ever debate me – OMG  – hubby, friends & I laughed heartily at that suggestion – even my Philly now living in Italy, the beautiful smart NC goddess gal pal, was giggling on phone about these characters – WOW – transatlantic bad press for the miscreants – see the saying is correct – as my “pen” is truly mightier than a ” short sword”]. On one point even these ignorant folks should be able to understand what I am attempting to say here about something being bastardize because I know for a REAL and legal fact [I have the documents and so does the lawyer/M.S.I.A. cohort, et al.] that at least one [the daughter of devil ex-wife] of you have what was once called “bastard offspring” – you know no REAL Father – as in your children have been 100% REALLY legally disowned and disinherited and the man you claimed to be their father [my REAL husband & REAL father of my REAL children] had his name legally changed; I will explain as simply as possible for the miscreants to understand – that man’s now current REAL legal name is NOT the name on your 3 [1 dead and 2 alive] bastard children’s birth certificates; hence your children have NO REAL father nor a REAL paternal family any longer. Someone asked me recently why my husband’s ex-wife was not smart enough to fully comprehend how much my husband despises her and her children – this was as result of this lawyer friend listing the many REAL ways my husband has REALLY legally disavowed her and her offspring … do not know exactly was how I more or less answered and of course, lawyer friend and I agreed possibly delusional personality disorder or just plain stupidity being reason. Lets face if a man legally disowns and disinherits you and your children – tells everyone he was never married before me nor has any other children besides ours and even legally changes his last name to mine in part to further erase any connection to your children – well then, pretty insulting  – I am sure my REALLY wise blog followers will agree. Almost forgot – my certified genealogy husband also erased all from family trees – including the very popular Ancestry.com … my poor darling frets that there might be some ancestry site out there on the internet that he missed in his determination to eliminate his ex-wife, her children and except for his parents Chester and Rosemary Eliasz, a couple of their siblings and  plus a few distant cousins, all his other biological family [look it up miscreants – ONLY denotes his parents as having had between them 3 other children, Child #1, #2, #3 and a full notation on my husband, who was their best child, is all you will find]. I guess you readers by now realize my husband and I are serious about ridding our unique Eliasz-Solomon family of these scum forever – now my biological relatives and the few cousins I approve of from my husband’s side are DEFINITELY in our life to stay and enjoy many happy times and blessings with us.

Anyway, back to the REAL me … not much makeup here [not my full face as they say] – these photos were done in my REAL  dressing room/walk in closet [room] in my REAL home [NOT our old 3100+ square foot $600,000 home that was criminally vandalized 2003 by children of devil’s daughter ex-wife and NOT small 1800 square feet under $190,000 like Michigan miscreant’s homes/same tiny footage for Pennsylvania miscreant who lives in under $290,000 home of her 2nd husband that she manipulated into marrying her when he was ill a little over 10 years ago – at least that is what she told my husband – go figure a chatty broad who lies, you never REALLY know]. By the way, our new homeS will have closets that are bigger than ALL the 3 miscreant losers homes put together – see you have to be a REALLY genius Masters Degree Computer Scientist, who is a  famous Data Architect like my hubby to REALLY look up the REAL facts about someone’s property. IMPORTANT FYI FOR MISCREANTS – here is yet another law school/legal tutorial for you: before you get the silly, child-like notion that we are harassing you – forget it . This is how it works: when one initiates a topic – as you did with insinuated lies and your usual misinformation on Facebook about our homes, etc, then we/our REAL lawyers may do likewise in-kind with impunity … see idiots, the adage “do unto others as you would have them do unto you” is true even in jurist prudence. Oh yes, one thing more – we ALWAYS notify the Courts and such about our REAL situations – so if fat guy loser disowned/disinherited brother thinks he will inform anyone about us … knock yourself out – we are way ahead of you – every person/official was already informed about that threat from you and we keep each updated on all our REAL facts/situations. Actually, ALL Court officials, etc. have your names, contact information and voicemail threats, Facebook/Twitter rants, etc. – in other words, you cannot tell anyone anything that we have not already informed each about – FULLY!   None of this should surprise the miscreants – after all my very protective husband warned all his now legally disowned and fully disinherited former siblings in multiple emails [which by the way structure & strongly worded verbiage greatly impressed my publicist & attorneys] and those certified letters they keep refusing [a fact which detectives/lawyers found interesting – to say the least] that he would NEVER tolerate insults nor threats to/about myself, his wife and the mother of his ONLY REAL children.  I spend so much time with lawyers, judges and at Court Houses – that I am a sort of mascot … my Court Cop friends and I joke about hubby’s ex [one who saw ugly nasal broad said she was reason he would not want to marry but conversely knowing me, might make him reconsider because my hubby definitely “hit the jackpot” 2nd time around]. One sweet lady cop knitted U.S.A. flag winter caps for our REAL twin sons recently – many read my blog and they tell me I am great fun – of course, I also bring them goodies and funny stories routinely. Unlike miscreant losers all these REALLY fine people know the REAL truth … the good and the bad and REALLY get it. My husband, although himself born there suggests it must be that miscreants were born in Michigan – most still live there but I say no because I know REALLY great born and bred Michigan folks – has to be something else that makes these creeps so stupid and loathsome. So you see, my dear hubby and I are good at our REAL work …G-d I am smiling big time – such fun this has become for us because when you know – deep down in your heart and others say the same about you – that like my husband and I, that you are a REALLY good person – then, yes, there is a certain amount of joy in retribution against miscreant evil types.

PLEASE my dear followers, forgive me,  my snobbery about hubby and my amazing soon to be full time new homeS [not REALLY how I think of others] but I readily admit to  having just too much fun teasing sad pathetic loser types – an advisor recently suggested that venues like Architectural Digest,  Town & Country  and  Hampton magazines [we have online subscriptions to all 3] will surely want to do a spread on our new magnificent abodes when my memoir book is published in 2013 and he  suggested how irritated that would make loser miscreants but myself and gal pal who accompanied me to that meeting, virulently insisted those kind NEVER read A.D. ,  T.&C. nor Hamptons-anything – they are more US magazine types or maybe People magazine at best. I should feel badly about taking such pleasure in teasing these “little” middle of the middle of the middle loser types but if you knew them like I and my husband do – you dear supportive nearly 5000 for me and 28,000+ for my husband, Chester Michael Eliasz-Solomon’s blog followers would REALLY agree they are loathsome bottom dweller insignificant creatures – truly worthy of disdain. In fact many of you have called, written and such with full and REAL agreement that these creatures are REAL losers … so much fun when I bump into a REAL friend/acquaintance and they chat up about what I write concerning these bottom dwellers. Oh well – ALL will be in my 2013 memoir, Heiress Mommy … A Modern Super Woman Life! – my 100% REAL life story with only a bit but sufficiently detailed reference to these REALLY unfashionable creatures.

Annual Fashion Night Out Event REALLY Does Matter … Not Just About Pretty Clothes!

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

I know – my peeps are at Democratic Convention in North Carolina where I was invited but had to decline [which I will be writing about in a few days], there are Jewish New Year preparations needing tending to by me and here I am writing about fashion. We all know I am a very complex broad – shall we say a thinker JAP? But this is not only about my need for couture – this 4th Annual Fashion Night Out is about so much more – talent, arts, jobs, commerce, community and that is just the obvious. Many countries and more than you can imagine U.S. cities, towns and country hamlets participate in this September 6th fete. I receive emails from this event, as well as designers I have purchased items from – on my laptop in my home study is a FNO countdown clock – I am serious – it alerts me to new included participants and keeps me directed to getting out and getting into the stores to shop and enjoy. Not to worry, no time, nothing close by – online possibilities are plenty. So I am going to explain exactly why FNO matters, how you can get involved – even if not able to purchase anything this year … well maybe just a little something!

The history of Fashion Night Out [does 4 years equal historical notation?]  is one way to understand why what some miscreant (see I got it in, lol) types think frivolous, is anything but that. I reference and explain in my blog post, See You In September – Now Lets … Vogue!, why I agree with what Anna Wintour suggested in the documentary, September Issue – to paraphrase, that is for those afraid of fashion to mock it is ridiculous and I add that the visa verse is also true. In other blog posts I detail how fashion has determined history in ways not easily understood – a leader denoting shared value by choice of attire with their people, a job gotten on account of proper choice of clothes or an inclusion to a club because of presenting well. Poor, rich or someone in the middle – most folks dress for a reason in mind – be it comfort, safety, event, style or just joy – we humans cloak ourselves in that which we hope the world will recognize as an essence of who we are. There are many wonderful charities/organizations that attend to those less fortunate or attempting a fresh start who need clothes for a job or school interview. I have participated in and donated to Dress For Success in my hometown of Philadelphia and I can tell you it makes a big difference in someone’s troubled life to feel their attire shows them at their best en route to their potential new place in this world.

Fashion Night Out is a global initiative sponsored by Vogue and CFDA – started in 2009 as a way to promote fashion and its accessory issues of commerce, textiles, design, etc.. A slumping economy demanded a forceful and committed effort to get shoppers back into the stores and so the fashionista powers that be combined that necessity with a charitable contribution aspect for NYC AIDS fund. Growing to include events, food venues, gifts packages, t-shirts/totes collaboratively designed for FNO and more lead to a successful $$$ replenishment of fashion interest worldwide. Obviously, my soon to be hometown NYC is the center of this yearly event – why not? as NYC is the center of the Universe in so many ways. No I am not being a East Coast elitist snob – ok, maybe a wee bit but credit must be given where due – for it is indeed NYC that birth this very profitable and job creating event. No worries dear readers – surely there is a satellite FNO near you and if not you can always get online baby. There will even be TV coverage and a behind the scenes/how we built this [shout out to GOP, lol] show, plus a presentation of the documentary September Issue I have referenced. WOW – now that is organizing on steroids and this brings me to the topic of ingenuity and creativity that FNO showcases so well. America Council Of Fashion Designers CEO, Steve Kolb has created a video tutorial and guide for FNO – there is Twitter and Facebook, emails and guides galore to help everyone, everywhere be a part of this late night September 6th [others close dates around the world] happening. So many venue additions have morphed from the first FNO in 2009 – food, jewelry, furnishings, art and so much more has blossomed as a result of this effort.

No more important American ideal exist than the pick yourself up by your bootstraps and make your way forward plan. A wise friend asked that I include the buy American suggestion in this blog post – yes, buying American products is important – even paramount to helping the U.S.A. economy and as such I do say we must try to buy products designed and produced here in this great nation. There is a however I must examine – the international and interdependent aspect of modernity has dictated that we consume and purchase items that are often from everywhere on the planet. I admit to loving European designers – my wardrobe full of ready to wear and couture from France, Italy and other countries but I want Americans to be in my closet as well – always looking for and promoting American creativity is a must do in my life. The glory of FNO is that it occurs on U.S.A. Terra firma for those of you here and others in their nation … so you see if you get out and shop, eat, participate in your American hometown on September 6th you will be helping Americans – jobs and incomes increased by your very presence at this event. I am a political junkie and so I will digress from fashion in a way here to say that when you enter the door of any shop in this country, no matter where their products were made, you are helping Americans have jobs – yes it is wonderful to check that label for made in U.S.A. but we must have increased initiative and yes share with other nations what we produce and they with us. The FNO is an American invention – decided and started by experts from many nations but birthed on U.S. soil – we are still the world’s inspiration and that is championed when happenings like Fashion Night Out succeed.

I have been at 2 of the 4 FNO – was hoping to be in my soon to be hometown of NYC this year but planning move, school and babies means next year will be my time there. This year I will be at a Philadelphia FNO event and DEFINITELY doing my part online. In my 2013 book, Heiress Mommy … A Modern Super Woman Life! fashion shows up as an issue in the most unlikely of places – trust me, you will lol. So even though there are more pressing issues I care about … getting Obama reelected for one, I will, as always, try to look good while doing good. May I suggest you do the same – now follow the links I provide here – including the where and how to participate in Fashion Night Out. Please go to the “Chat With Tereza” option on my blog wall to share your FNO experiences and photos via email with me. Have fun my darlings!!!

P.S. In reference to this November election – the GOP war on the arts – cutting funding will destroy fashion, design and such initiatives and therefore destroy American jobs. So while you participate in FNO be sure you are registered to vote, have the [unconstitutionally required] I.D. and reach out to others to be sure they do too. Because trust me if Romney/Ryan and the Republicans win Congress/Senate majority, no night out will ever be the same and certainly ONLY the elite will get to enjoy such events because not only are the GOP extremist planning to cut art grants and small business loans but also public transportation, etc. – so unless you have a limo ride, you are not going anywhere much once they are in control of our great nation!!!

Why I Love ALL Things Ritz … NOT Talking Crackers Here!!!

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

Coco Chanel, Proust, Hemingway, Cole Porter, the Fitzgeralds, Sophia Loren, Princess Diana and ME. All of us adored the Hotel Ritz Paris for one or another reasons  – I also have known and loved The Ritz Carlton Hotels and more recently their Residences. The cracker – now that is a no no in my world and I assure you that unlike Harrison Ford’s amnesia stricken character in the 1991 movie Regarding Henry, I will NEVER ever confuse the Ritz Cracker with the Ritz-Carlton.  Let us not digress from the story of excellence and history … for the well heeled, the infamous and the famous, as well as the servers and staff whose life was changed by staying or working at The Ritz. You might be humming the old song “Puttin’ On The Ritz” as you read this – yes it was inspired by the Ritz, written and published by Irving Berlin  in 1929. So my darling readers,  hum away as I tempt you to save enough as to be able to plan being a guest at the reopening in Paris 2014 of this grandest hotel.

A recent Vanity Fair article paid homage to the Paris Ritz as it closes for a two year renovation this Summer on 31July2012. Not just a hotel but home to many throughout its history – from its opening 1898, through wars and the 1929 Depression, the Paris Ritz has remained a success and a must go to destination point for a wide variety of individuals. Started by a less than wealthy Cesar Ritz – this self  taught original owner of the Paris Ritz, his wife Madame Ritz and later son instituted the prototype for class in hotels everywhere. Yes, I have been there more than once when visiting France and I lived for a while in a Stateside East Coast Ritz-Carlton Penthouse after being widowed in 2001 [as with so much else, I must save ALL the details for my book: Heiress Mommy …  A Modern Super Woman Life!]. Everything they advertise is 100% true – the service, concern for privacy, the food, the ambiance is special and even though there are so many other fine hotels and resorts that I have visited and more I and my husband of nearly nine years, Chester Micahel Eliasz-Solomon and our children are planning to visit – the Ritz remains one of a kind in my heart. Ernest Hemingway once wrote that when he dreams of an afterlife in heaven, it takes place at the Paris Ritz [I would love that too – but for me, as a Jewish Princess, heaven’s afterlife would be at the new Ritz Residences in Herzliya, Israel]. Proust had his chauffeur, Odilon, fetch his favorite Paris Ritz Bar beer to consume on his death bed. Love affairs have been consummated and one can assume babies conceived in the glorious well appointed Paris Ritz suites.

Needless to say, those who so love the Paris Ritz are a bit, shall we say nerveux et anxieux about this latest restoration, after the last being such a success 33 years ago. The current makeover is being done by French architect and designer Thierry Despont – a person of obvious talent and probably great confidence, as anyone who has ever visited France knows that the dear French can be [to say the least] opinionated. Unlike many luxury hotels, Ritz everywhere seem more like a club or home [for me it actually was for nearly one year] – there is an ease and security and lack of the carnival atmosphere that some other glamorous hotels seem to include. The most recent Ritz incarnation is its Luxury Condominium Residences – so one is owning a Ritz home, where they have managed to gleam the hotel stay ease into these apartments/condominiums … the best of both home ownership and vacation is the result.

There is much to be learned from the Ritz hotel policy … elegance, graciousness, respect, duty, generosity, courtesy and an understated presentation that welcomes all – no matter status or circumstance. Of course, I would be somewhat less than truthful if I personally did not admit that for myself one of the perks of staying at any Ritz property is that it assures me the company of like minded individuals . That does not necessarily [while granted a stay at the Ritz can be expensive] mean wealthy or elite but for the most part it does mean well mannered and dignified.

The Paris Ritz long and illustrious history is both interesting and enlightening – a fun read and a suggestive template for others, whether professional or personal to make hospitality no matter location a must do in life!!!

P.S. This blog’s picture is of one of MY own many Ritz Hotel bedroom slippers from my living and staying there so often and that is MY Ritz Penthouse [gift from management] key tag in the picture … Obviously  no longer with an active entry device attached but there will be more for myself and my growing family because we do love puttin’ on the Ritz!!!
