"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.

Merry Christmas 2020

  Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas one and all.  May you have a very festive day.   What a crazy year!  At the onset of the year 2020, we all had the best intentions, goals, and anticipation.   Of course, 2020 proved to be the opposite of anything we expected.  Completely 180 degrees of "What Now?"   There is no need to explain because we all have lived it.  What is for certain is that the year is finally ending. Thank goodness.  Some have stated this was the worse year in the history of our country.  Whether it was or is not, the end is in sight and a vaccine is beginning to be administered.  Hopefully, we each can reassess what is important in our lives, anticipate some sort of normalcy swooping back into our lives.  After all, we are social creatures and being isolated is not healthy for the mind or the body.  Spirit of Christmas - The Christmas Star Last Seen 1226 Never stop believing in the future and unknown.  This season we all decorated to the nines, baked cookies, laid ou

Over the Knee Boots - Monday Favorite Things

We have patiently waited, been thoughtful, diligent and now the year is upon us.  Wishing happiness to all of you as we battle on.  The end is nearing for the virus, which brings smiles to everyone.  It is an exciting time with revitalized energy coursing through our veins.  An era of promise hope and  much more.  Get ready to soar, achieve your dreams and spread goodwill toward others.  "What good is the warmth of summer with out the chill of winter?" - John Steinbeck Along the path, winter has arrived.  Rain, snow, sleet, and hail in the mix for some and in the future for others.  What I love right now?  Over the knee boots.  A must for the cold days of winter.  Here are my favorites for a winter wonderland of fashion.  Even if you are working from home, there is nothing better than slipping on a beautiful pair of o

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 it

Happy New Year - 2021

  A New Chapter "Cheers to the new year and another chance for us to get it right." - Oprah Winfrey The end of the year fast approaches.  It has been a roller coaster ride for everyone.  The virus, lockdowns, tragic deaths, national election, and other elements caused for a turbulent and unforgettable year.  One we will never forget.  Some say this is the worst year in our history surpassing the depression of the 1930's, September 11th and various Wars.   Perhaps this is so because our country and the entire world shut down at various points.  Even today, lock downs exist, virus is on the rise and vaccines are being administered.  We will never forget last Spring and Summer when eerie photos of empty streets filled the newswires, epic violence occurred and of course endless news about the benevolent virus. However, we continue onward.  We eagerly move forward to a fresh beginning.  We wash away 2020 and start anew with a clean slate filled with possibility, hope and peace
