Flirty Fun



"A piece of clothing should be like a work of art." Rosita Missoni


Inspiration and creativity are the cornerstone of any great endeavor or idea. I learned in my youth that they are several ways to achieve a goal. If you want the Bogner ski jumpsuit then you need to work.  There wasn't any other path to getting what I wanted.  So I worked during high school making money for what I desired and for college. And, felt fulfilled in achieving my goals. Additionally, many believe that if you always follow the path prescribed then you will achieve the outcome you desire.  For instance, if I get good grades, follow the education system for college dotting all the i's and t's as demanded along the way, I will be very successful.  Is this true?  For many yes, yet others who follow a slightly different path can become extraordinary. Take Bill Gates, who didn't finish college but followed his passion instead.  We all know the outcome. Those that think "out of the box" or "go around the rock in the road" usually find achievement or completion of a goal.   In other words, don't let someone tell you can't do something.  And, don't rely on someone else to make your dreams come true.  You are in charge.

What else makes a person feel satisfied? The actual art of learning something new or working on a project for hours combined with the ability to play well with others and to communicate succinctly.  The Wall Street Journal recently stated that communication in business is the number one priority.  The ability to write well plus speaking is required and expected.  Writing doesn't mean short texts. You also must also be willing to things that do not pertain to a job description.  Why?  You cannot create, become or achieve without starting at the bottom.  What is worthwhile takes grit, creativity and gumption to know that your dream, your goal takes hard work and one plus one often means one hundred.  In other words, seek out your creative mind, think broadly, think critically from all angles and walk with a purpose.  Remember creative achievement can be derived by what you deem worthy such as a career, a hobby, a mom etc. And, while you are at it - have a little fun with apparel.  After all it is the sunshine season and this is your life and your adventure.

Color is back in a big way this summery season.   A vivid hue brightens any day.  Aren't you ready to put away grey, blacks and browns?   So dull when the flowers are blooming, the sky is full blue, sun is shining and the world is in full blossom.  And, if it is raining where you live a little color goes along way to add glitter to your day.

The world is indeed your oyster.  You can be anything you want if you put your mind too it.  Sounds simple right? Of course, it isn't. After all, why do you want life to be easy?  Great feelings of accomplishment always come from your own efforts.  Hard work, persistence and imagination will put you on the road to success.  Don't wait to get started.  Put on your thinking cap, dream big and get to work.  And, while you are at your art desk of life add sparkle with a few color pieces, polka dots or anything that inspires you.  Life is an adventure.

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.
