Lion's, Tiger's and Leopard's - Oh My!




Hear Me Roar! 

Red Lips, Black, White, Grey and Silent Secret Weapon - Animal Print!






Your apparel, your appearance and your character does matter.  Your personal style is a powerful tool of communication.  People will make an impression of you within 30 seconds of meeting you.  So why not put your best foot forward and make an effort to appear presentable?  Now more than ever how you dress, what you wear, how you present yourself is so important.  You can think it doesn't but it does.  Duchess Megan of Sussex has transformed herself from being an actress into presenting herself as formidable, regal woman befitting her new role.   Meghan, like Duchess Kate of Cambridge, knows that standing tall, sporting a smile with simple and elegant apparel sends a lasting message of  "I respect myself and I respect the event and the people attending."  You will never find these two women wearing jeans with holes, sloppy coats or no makeup to an event or to a formal soiree.  They have learned the power of apparel and makeup.  Just as men know that a suit is more powerful in the public eye for the correct occasion.  You are what you wear. 

This fall animal print is stronger than ever.  Similar to the infamous red lip, black, white and grey clothing choices in your wardrobe the leopard, tiger print and lion hues are a silent secret weapon.  Animal prints never fail and send a strong message plus are roaring fun to adorn all year round.  Tiger prints are making an impact too in 2018.  Even camel hued pieces evoke the lion in all of us.  Which of course, leads me to the essence of being a lion.  Are you a lion? Do you know what a lion represents?

Lions symbolize strength, leadership, pride, nobility, majesty and courage.  Their roar is considered as one of the voices of Goddesses.  The scary and mesmerizing growl is noticed and draws you into something beautiful.  The lion is golden hued and has been symbolized by ancient civilizations and appears as family crests, coats of arms and national flags.  Lion goddesses are warriors. There is so much written about lions.  Thus, why not wear a leopard print, tiger print or the golden hue of a lion?  Step up your personal style with the roar of  leopard or lion and make an impression that will be remembered.  More importantly, you will personally become a Lion Goddess and feel the power of dressing for success.  Yes, your apparel and style does matter.  What are you waiting for?

Classic Coach for Fall

  Summer Ending "We cannot direct the wind. But we can adjust the sails." Aristotle Summer is winding down as the weather cools, leaves are turning into glorious hues and breathtaking flowers are slowly wilting.  You can feel the shift in the air. Embrace the pending change with anticipation for pumpkins, colors of red, gold and yellow, falling temperatures, spider webs and the end of summertime.  Once again, we long for cozy sweaters, boots, coats, scarves and apparel designated for a fall landscape. Additionally, we are gearing up again for another roller coaster autumn.  Many events, trips, world upsets, work environments and basic daily life is shifting with uncertainty.  Of course, we cannot predict the future, yet Covid remains intact.  Hopefully more will become vaccinated, which in turn, helps end the present and immediate crisis.  The virus will become endemic with perhaps less fear and instead similar to the annual flu vaccines. To put this is perspective, the Spani

Kendra Scott - Jewels

"A Girls Best Friend"  Jewelry is equated to icing on a cake or a finale to a play or the ending of a scintillating novel. In other words, an outfit is just not complete without a dab of bling.   Whether wearing jeans, sporting work out gear, getting ready for work, an evening out or absolutely anything, a bauble of jewels is a necessity.  Or course, it is a juggling act because too many jewels makes one appear a bit desperate for attention.  You know the person, they walk into a room and everything from head to toe is sparkling and wiggling so that all is seen are the multitudes of  jewels rather than them.  The well dressed are always sporting minimal jewels.  Check out Golden Globes 75th - Fashion Highlights   for ideas from the red carpet.   The right amount is essential.
