  My Imaginary Life "You can have anything you want in life if you dress for it." Edith Head When I look outside today, I see lush fresh green growth, flowers, ferns, and beauty everywhere.  It is a brand-new fauna and flora world bursting the seams with joy. Color is everywhere in superb hues delighting the mind and soul.  Regarding fashion, it is the moment to drench oneself in beautiful tones and sport simple clothing for the warmer months to come.  The list of "minimalistic" apparel includes shorts, frocks, sandals, bathing suits and ropes of costume jewelry.  What is my imaginary life?  A friend of mine used this comment recently and I loved it.  Over the last two years, many of us have collected select pieces to wear sometime in the future. Thus, waiting for our imaginary life to begin once again with events, dinners, outings, and soirees of yesteryear or rather over two years ago.  We collected in anticipation.  After all, shopping online has become a new hab

Florals are Back

  Flowers & Colors Everywhere "Anything is possible with sunshine and a little pink." Lilly Pulitzer Flower power is everywhere this spring and summer.   Not only are florals wildly sought after in fashion but also in home décor. Floral wallpaper is making a strong comeback along with vibrant wall hues.  Perhaps after several dark and dreary years of grays, whites, and blacks we are yearning for a warmer and cozier period filled with vibrate tones. Basically, modern is out and traditional is in vogue.  Actually, did traditional ever disappear?  No, it did not. Think about the series  Downton Abbey which incorporates eternal values, costumes and décor.  An overall traditional vibe of classic attire and timeless décor that emanates warm and soothing vibes.  Surrounding yourself with lots of color is refreshing and uplifting.  After all, are we not looking for hope, calm and upbeat measures? My friends and I are embracing bright lipstick and apparel in hues of pink, red, ora

  Can You Say "Vacation?" "Fashions fade, style is eternal" Yves Saint Laurent Spring has sprung and vacation madness is upon us.  For many, it is the first time in two years to get out of town via an airplane to a favored destination.   What a grand time to partake in a well-deserved excursion. Sure, you might have to wear a mask, take a Covid test yet the effort is worth every cocktail, sandy beach, and the ocean.  After a relaxing trip to Cabo San Lucas, I do have a few comments before I share with you my all-time favorite sandals and sun paraphernalia.   I always wear wide brimmed hats, rash guards, wear lots of sunscreen and keep out of the direct sun.   Many will take the opposite road and bath in the glorious yellow orb with aplomb.   Not me.  The sun and heat are not my friend.  To Dress or not to dress? That is the Question. Additionally, flying has the usual quirks of lots of harried people, lots of luggage and lots of crazy behavior only a bit worse. What

Manners - A Lost Art

  "Manners are the sensitive awareness of the feeling of others, if you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what fork you use."  Emily Post First of let me be clear about my mantra.  I love fashion.  I love art.  I love books. I love movies. I love critical thinking.  I love intelligence.  I cherish being kind, connecting with others, acting with grace, acknowledging we are not alone, my actions matter, they count and to listen to others.  When I do something, it affects other people.   Everyone I am friends in this life is on this page of moral ethics.  Life is too short to live as if you are the only one in existence.  After two years of the deathly and scary  Covid 19 pandemic , our world has an endless sea of narcistic and wired individuals.   What is "wired"? Those with their heads down while they strut with ear pods and eyes glued to smartphones and or sitting at computers.  They are virtually unaware of their surroundings. Each day, there i
