White Blouse - A Thousand Identities

THE HUE WHITE - When white sunlight enters snow, very little of the spectrum is absorbed; almost all of the light is reflected or scattered by the air and water molecules, so the snow appears to be the color of sunlight, white.

The white blouse can be light and floating, impeccable and austere, sumptuous and all-enveloping, tight and close-fitting. It rises up to frame the face. It sculpts the body by transforming itself into a second skin. Imputed with glamour and poetry, freedom and impetuousness, the prim white shirt turns out to have a thousand identities…

There is something refreshing and sophisticated about a crisp White Blouse thrown on for almost any occasion.  This staple can be worn with black pants, shorts, capris, jeans, skirts, under sweaters, over camisoles or for evening soiree's.  Add pearls and relish the classic and unique sparkle to any outfit during daily life.  The simple ensemble is always memorable. Wear a white blouse with a pencil skirt and command attention in the business arena. Or remember how Sharon Stone stole the red carpet at the 1998 Oscars wearing a snow white Gap blouse with a lavender Vera Wang skirt? Breathtaking!  In other words, a wardrobe requires a button down blouse constructed of the finest material.  Spend a little more for one in cotton, one that is fitted and for a silk top for special outings.  All will be worn over and over again.   More importantly, the White Blouse will stand the test of time and look sensational on a Forever Chic Style fashionista.

 The Classic Audrey - Button Down




Audrey Hepburn - White Blouse




I.  Classic Cotton Button Down:   Be Audrey Hepburn memorable in a cotton blouse with a point-collar and lustrous white buttons along a raised placket.   A long shirttail hem provides great coverage.  Great with skinny jeans, as a cover up or tucked in for a boxy look while always pretty and perfect.

II.  Stretch Infused Fitted Button Down:  The white shirt with cotton and nylon/Lycra spandex adds stretch creating a fitted shape that is soft to touch along with a point-collar blouse. This piece can easily be worn out or and also tucked in highlighting a woman's silhouette.  Add pearls, scarf or wear alone for a business statement.

"The most important thing to remember is that you can wear all the greatest clothes and all the greatest shoes, but you’ve got to have a good spirit on the inside. That’s what’s really going to make you look like you’re ready to rock the world."

— Alicia Keys

 
 

"Cool off in the heat with a white blouse! Shine with inner beauty and dare to be classic and memorable rather than trendy and forgotten.  All the world is a stage; dance with grace and love and light."

7 Ways to Become a Butterfly

Don't Crush the Butterfly! "Despite everything, no one can dictate who you are to other people." - Prince Butterfly's come in all shapes and sizes painted in dazzling and colorful hues.  The beauty and varied differences of the butterfly are astounding and beloved by the beholder.  There are approximately 20,000 species throughout the world dancing in the sun and air.   Yet, what does a butterfly mean to fashionistas? Well, for one all the people of the land can evolve into creative and wondrous butterflies.   It is through the journey of life that sometimes the environment, family, friends and peers willingly crush the beauty and charming essence of you  - the exotic butterfly. Don't Destroy the Wings of Flight There will always be the vengeful, the user, the hateful or a person filled with jealousy and envy that clips the wings of the butterfly.  Their insecurities reign supreme and a beautiful butterfly ready to spread it

  Lakes of Beauty Build an Oasis of Love Many are sighing with relief.  Now is the time to unite and heal the country.  Be open, be present and accept what comes. Would it not be wonderful to unite a fractured society where hate and anger were and still are at an all-time high.  Is it not time to start accepting one another, to listen to one another, and to support one another? Rather than throw stones at those with opposite thoughts or opinions.  It has been interesting and sad to witness such vitriol, destruction, and chaos this past year and hence.  Perchance rhetoric going forward will be filled with kindness for their fellow man.  One can only pray for sunshine to fill souls.  Thus, we begin again.  For now, notice the beauty around us.   The fall and winter to come are filled with peaceful moments when walking on your favorite trail.  Beauty surrounds us if we look.  The leaves, the wildlife, the rain, the lakes, the peace the small moments. Or maybe in your daily activities, you

Baby It's Cold Outside "Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience." Ralph Waldo Emerson The damp, dreary, wet and snow filled days are upon us for the upcoming months.   The change in the air is palpable along with early darkness falling across the land.   2020 has indeed been the craziest year for everyone with the horror of Covid, lockdowns and a roller coaster election.   After a nail-biting, hair-pulling, stress filled election this week with no clear resolution, it is best to remain steady and calm.   Life is indeed a wild ride with ups and downs, twists and turns.  You would not want your life to be dull, would you?  This year, more than any other year, in my lifetime, 2020 is one of complete societal pandemonium.  If someone had told me on New Year's Eve, that everyone's life in 2020 would be completely turned upside down, we would have looked at them and thought they were off their rocker.  Or maybe had imbibed a little too much.  Of course, it was

  The Bridge Thanksgiving is this week.  Celebrations might be different this year with a smaller group, yet spreading goodwill remains constant.   Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, pie and all the fixings will be set out on the table with a simple reminder.  We are thankful to live in this country.  We are thankful for our family and friends.  We are thankful for our existence.  We are thankful for our homes.   There is so much to be thankful in 2020.  Yes, there is.  Is it a tumultuous year?  Yes, absolutely one of extreme lifestyle change, tragedy for many and a shift for all to think about what is important in your own life.   What is important to you?  Is it being connected? Is it nature? Is it helping others or sharing yourself when needed?   I think this year is one of growth, challenge, perseverance, acceptance, and change.  We are crossing a bridge this season.  A bridge of hope.  A bridge of renewal.  How can we prepare to embrace this new bridge of hope?  The First Step - C
