The White Party - Apparel for Sultry Heat


 

 The Classic White Party




"Gatsby looked at Daisy in a way that every young girl wanted to be looked at"  - The Great Gatsby


The blistering heat, sun filled days and mouth watering barbeques with mint juleps on the deck are in full swing.  The backyards are lush with greenery and bountiful heads of brightly hued flowers bob in the warm breezes.   Sometimes, it is refreshing to be draped in all white creating a crisp and cool image against the summery backdrop.  The simple and nominal pieces are stylish for an all white affair, cocktails with friends or for a lovely night on the veranda.  Ah, summertime is here.


Crisp and Cool



Marilyn Monroe

 "You can have whatever you want if you dress for it." - Edith Head


 I. The One and Only Dress:   Choose a white concoction that fits the occasion.  Stick with token lines with a bit of movement to have a memorable effect at any soiree.  After all, it is warm out and fabric close to the skin might be confining.

 "The only real elegance is in the mind; if you got that the rest really comes from it" - Diane Vreeland



II.  The Breezy Pant:  Select cooler tones for pants, shorts and capris. White creamy pants and soft hues of caramel white make for a whirlwind of cool breezes. Step confidently in shades of vanilla ice cream with sometimes a hint of coffee.

"I don’t want to be this year’s fashion. I want to be forever. The kinds of clothes I design are the kinds of clothes that are timeless. I don’t want to be last year’s look. So in concept of my designing, I’m always very conscious of the timelessness and of not being trendy." - Ralph Lauren



IV.  The Essential Tee-Shirt: It is important to have an abundance of high quality tee-shirts in white and black.  The simple tee can be worn underneath jackets, with jeans, capris or shorts.  Add jewelry or a scarf and defy beauty gravity.

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 its wings can sometimes be stunned with …

Audrey Hepburn (1929-1993)Kindness


"Pick the day. Enjoy it- to the hilt.  The day as it comes. People as they come... The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present - and I don't want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future." 



"To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow." The ShiftIn our current upside-down apple pie world, many are struggling with the overload of information on the virus or election. The airwaves, print, social media, or any form of communication is constantly swirling at a high voltage.  The never-ending fables, unrest, destruction, statistics, changes our way of life and follows the path of what I call - The Shift.  A shift that we have no control over but can deal with as gracefully as possible. The Shift where everything we did for pleasure, work or play is on temporary hold or gone forever.  These shifts have happened throughout history.  Be patient. Be kind. It will pass and resolve. The chaos for some may lead to anger, …

Monday's Favorite Things

What I Love This Week - Perfume - Scents, seductive, fresh and oh so beautiful



Lancome's Le Vie est Belle Eau De Parfum (Life is Beautiful) is lovely and unforgettable.  Have you ever worn a perfume that receives lots of comments?  I personally love this scent.  And, yes others do comment.  
The name of the perfume constantly reminds me that life is indeed beautiful.  Life is a gift.  It is to be cherished and and should be enjoyed.  Don't let Negative Nelly'sAngry Annie's or Righteous Rita's ruin your day. Avoid those that do not lift your spirits or make you smile.  Seek out laughter with others either online or in-person. 
Spritz on your favorite perfume.  Put on something pretty and start the day with the knowledge that your life choices and decisions matter.  You are special.   
Lancome's Le Vie est Belle Eau De Parfum  has floral notes of sambac, jasmine and Tunisian orange blossom. This perfume is for the woman who lives in the present and loves her life. …
