MINKPINK Summertime Dress Sensation

  

August Sunshine




"Live in the sunshine, swim in the sea, drink the wild air" - Ralph Waldo Emerson


August is here and the last days of summer are  upon the land with blistering heat and a myriad of travel plans to sunny paradise locations. Or last minute cocktail parties, date night and family reunions where a gorgeous piece is a must for the event or barbeque.  Thus the bright yellow orb in the sky demands fashionistas across the land to slip on a feminine floaty dress with a 50's vibe.  Recently, True Detective (2015) actress Rachel McAdams wore a beautiful frock from MINKPINK an Australian fashion brand.  I  adore the concoction draped on Ms. McAdams as she floated effortlessly down a street on a sun drenched day with a knowing smile, snappy sunglasses and gorgeous dress.

"We follow a pretty simple formula when we design,"  "We just ask ourselves 'what do we want to wear?' We've just always followed that philosophy because that's exactly how girls shop. Fashion isn't serious, shopping and getting dressed is supposed to be fun. We just wanted to create a brand that encapsulated that feeling." - Rachel Evans

 

 

Minkpink entered the fashion scene in 2005 for ladies looking for fresh designs with a twist of vintage in apparel. The quirky and eclectic pieces are fun and will not break the bank.  Created in Sydney, Australia by designer Rachel Evans the line became the top youth brand in just five years. This dress hits the mark for women of all ages.  The essential mix of pretty printed fabric and just enough skin to add a bit of mystery.  The lacy bra and wedges add to the ensemble though flats would also be extra charming.

Have a little fun this August, and dance in a flirty dress that is flattering on a stylish woman called you.  Happy sunshine, warm sands, cocktails and lovely breezes.   Ahh...the summer is the best time to reflect, smell the roses, read a book and basically bask in the beauty surrounding everything and everyone.

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 - Women Who Inspire

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, …

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. …
