Taylor Swift - Fashion Icon 2015



Audrey, Grace and Taylor!

"Swift has become a pop-culture icon, and perhaps the most influential 25-year-old in the world, with enough raw talent and polite but indomitable confidence to put everyone from Silicon titans to Kim Kardashian's husband in their place."  - Graydon Carter - Vanity Fair - September 2015




Hear Swift Roar!


Taylor Swift at the age of 25 is a songwriter, singer, entertainer and philanthropic advocate that graciously knows the importance of being a strong role model for the youth and for women of any age.  At every public event or show performed, Swift dresses with taste and style knowing not baring all creates mystery and elegance rather than prancing around in skimpy apparel for shocking attention.  Additionally, the videos Blank Space (November 10,2014 - Over 1B YouTube views), Bad Blood (May 17,2015 - 500M YouTube views) and the latest release - Wildest Dreams (August 30, 2015 - 48M YouTube views and counting) are about the songs, music, and story-lines combined with extraordinary fashion beautifully filmed and specifically designed to entertain rather than showcase the ills of humanity. The latest video Wildest Dreams profits are to save the lions and animals in Africa by donating to the African Parks Foundation which in turn helps the people of Africa. Thank you Ms. Swift after the sad story about Cecil the lion that captured the hearts of the world.






Swift is definitely following the paths of the late Audrey Hepburn, Princess Grace Kelly both fashion icons and humanitarians that transformed the world of fashion, exuded manners, thoughtfulness and exhibited grace at every turn.  Of course, there are other famous and gifted women from yesteryear and today yet Hepburn and Kelly continue to remain at the forefront as standard-bearers of the ultimate fashion mavens, cleverness, intelligence and refinement.   Yes, Taylor Swift is icon bound and truly a role model for women of today.


"I am completely fascinated by the differences and comparisons between real life and fairy tales because we're raised as little girls to think that we're a princess and that Prince Charming is going to sweep us off our feet." - Taylor Swift





"Swift is the real deal in every way, shape and form. She's a writer, she's a singer, she's a beautiful girl ... Like, she's going to be around." - Jon Bon Jovie


The Swift Factor




 

"I think people inspire me the most. If I meet a person who is incredibly complex, and all of a sudden, I start thinking in rhymes, that person could be a muse" - Taylor Swift


I.  Everyday Street Style:  Swift's magic fashion sense is classic, bold yet lively can be copied by fashion mavens around the world regardless of age.  The skinny jeans in a rich fall maroon hue can be mixed with camel and a standard plaid or blue top plus black satchel for statement making memories. Additionally, if skinny jeans do not apply, resort to boot cut or the the popular 70's flair that is in style for Fall 2015.  Bottom line, a timeless camel coat with ever popular jeans and scarf and booties is a fashion ensemble to be worn over and over again.

The Effortless White







"I don't compare myself to anyone else; I don't make comments about anyone else because they do what feels right for them, and that's okay by me." - Taylor Swift


II.  The Ultimate Buttoned Down:  A white blouse is a fashion staple in a woman's wardrobe.  The beautiful precision-cut and fit flatters the face and figure leaving a professional and polished impression.

The Versatile Suit









"Style is such a personal thing; it's your way of being an individual" - Taylor Swift


III.  Girl Power:  The suit is the cloak that evokes power and demands self assurance.  The beauty of a suit, no matter the hue, is the unforgettable presence that is derived from the wearer.  And, the effect is never boring nor ever dull.   Swift, self assured, mixes and matches the jacket, pants and in this case shorts for a fresh and bold audience appeal.  Every woman - yes - every woman needs a basic suit to dazzle in respect. 

Note:  Buy the most expensive one can afford.   The idea is to make a wise investment upfront and to wear the garment for years to come.

"Beauty is sincerity. There are so many different ways someone can be beautiful."  - Taylor Swift



IV.  Evening Attire: Elegant, minimal and swoon worthy with beautiful couture which heightens allure with every turn and at every event.  So Audrey Hepburn showcasing womanly drama demanding lavish glamour without the "shock" factor.  In other words - retro Hollywood - retro Audrey.

Red, Red, Red... Videos






"You got that James Dean look in your eye and I got that red lip classic thing that you like."  -  Taylor Swift




V.   Classic Red Lips:  Never leave home without red apple lips.   There is something about a woman with a dash of red carefully applied to lips that is show stopping and camera popping.   Swift always maximizes the gorgeous red lip with aplomb.

Yes, Taylor Swift is on a roll and remains a strong role model for women across the land.  Enjoy dressing up, inspiring others, giving back and of course wearing red!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021

  First Glance Patience & Manners Please It is that time of year once again for the  Nordstrom Anniversary Sale .   Currently, you can preview the upcoming sale online.  This allows you to create a  "Wish List."   If you have a Nordstrom card, you can shop early.  For instance, Icon status begins on Monday, July 12th.  Check online for your start date.  The Nordstrom sale will open fully to everyone on Wednesday, July 28th .    Zen Master "Some people forget that kindness and manners are free."   A couple of comments before we discuss on what will sell out quickly.   Since the country is opening up after a year and half of shutdowns due to Covid 19 pandemic , it is imperative that you access your skills at being patient.  Lately, I have noticed that many are impatient in their cars, public transportation (ferries for me), and in public places where businesses and restaurants are struggling to serve and be open.  The rude behaviors and lack of manners has been

Yellow Mania Continues 2018

Yearly Yellow with a Happiness Vibe The happy hues of yellow in apparel remain vibrant and strong in 2018. Last year, you may recall my article on Yellow Apparel Spring 2017 published on April 5, 2017.   And, once again, I seem riveted on these naturally sunny tones that are spontaneous, signify warmth and most eagerly anticipated. Perhaps it is the time of the year with the dripping pools of water, rain, sleet, hail and yes snow that stimulates the mantra, "please let there be sun". Of course, if you are in Palm Desert, California or Scottsdale, Phoenix or a tropical climate yellow rays of sunshine are always forefront and center.  For the rest of us, we are ready to drink up a few bars of light.  And, if rays come forth for a  wee bit, we dance, run outside and have an extra kick in our step.  Yet, when the elements keep on pouring our way, it is time to bring out yellow in our apparel and accessories. While, we are perusing our closets, online stores etc., we
