89th Academy Awards 2017 - Fashion Overview

Lights, Camera's & Holy Mackerel!   And, The Best Picture goes to - What Just Happened? The 89th Academy Awards Sunday, February 26, 2017 ended with a stunned audience gasping in shock as Warren Beatty and Fay Dunaway  announced the incorrect winner for Best Picture giving the nod to La La Land .  The immediate and confusing correction was given to the well deserved film after fumbling hands exchanged the envelopes to the correct winner -  Moonlight .  The crazed finale was the unexpected culmination to a year of interesting though sad movies about the human condition which is always utterly unpredictable.  Many thought the mix-up was a hoax because of the host Jimmy Kimmel and Matt Damon silly feud but then the reality of chaos hit with a flourish.  Art does imitate life and last night was an example of how even under the most controlled environments the world doesn't always play by the numbers.

Black Pants & White Blouse - Zebra Style

When events are opposite of expected a choice needs to made to move forward with love (grace) rather than lash out with spite and vitriol (nature).  Alas, the glorious month of February has arrived signaling a time to bring forth love, respect and grace towards humanity with words of kindness either written or spoken.  The opposite only reflects on the person initiating the wordsmith stream of discontent.   Thus, let's as a collective move together towards love, let's spread love and let's find a few red and pink pieces to wear da

Blues of Spring 2017

Shades of Blue "Imagination is the only weapon in the war against reality" -  Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland In the dead of winter sometimes longing for blue skies, blue waters and anything baby blue brings a bit of joy to the heart and soul.
