Barbecues, apple pie, fireworks, parades and fun with family and friends is around the corner. Celebrating the United States of America Fourth of July Independence Day is always an exhilarating and exciting time.  Laughter, traditions and fireworks displayed across the darkened skies symbolizes our freedoms across the glorious land.  Whether boating, hiking, swimming or on a backyard deck it is essential to be patriotic.  So - just what to wear? Well, of course,  the hues of the day are red, white and blue capturing the honored flag while dancing through the dazzling festivities.  Here are some favorites to snap up before July 4, 2017!



The Parade Marching Top









I. Star Spangled Tee:   Finding a fitting shirt for the special holiday can be daunting. However,  any red, white or blue piece is firework spectacular combined with white jeans, shorts or capris.   Sometimes finding a red, white and blue striped number spells victory.   Otherwise, improvise with the colors on hand and be ready to display freedom with honor.

The Ultimate Jean:  Jeans are symbolic to the American culture.   Levi Strauss invented the blue jean in 1873 slated for the working man in America.  Today jeans are the cornerstone of fashion maven's closets.  And, a white jean is always appropriate.  Combine with a red or blue top and appear polished for the day.

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 …

What I Love This Week - Ray-Ban Sunglasses




My well-loved polarized Ray-Bans are scratched from constant wearing and setting them down.  Apparently, I should have put them in their case more than I did.  One day while driving, I noticed that the scratches on the lens were bothering me.  Upon a recent trip to my favorite store, I spotted a new pair of shades. 
I tried them on and the rest is history.   I love these retro sunglasses.  They fit perfectly and have the polarization that is a must.  Why?  A glass surface is horizontal, the light reflects horizontally.   With polarized sunglasses, the surface filters out the horizontal light waves and protects from harmful UV rays.

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. …
