Fourth of July! Fashion & Freedom



Red, White and Blue!






"With freedom, books, flowers, and the moon who could not be happy" Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) Irish poet and playwright



The Fourth of July is this Thursday.  Fireworks, apple pie, swimming, sunshine, family and fun is all wrapped up in this patriotic and special holiday.  More importantly, we need to take time and be grateful, and to reflect on our forebearers who built this glorious country through sweat, hard work and perseverance.   We live in a free land because of them.  We must also remember and honor those who have and those who still today fight for our freedom worldwide.  We are forever and eternally indebted. 

While you take a moment and count your blessings, let us also contemplate on what to wear on this sparkler and fireworks filled day.   Of course, anything red, white and blue.

There you have it.  Are you ready for the 4th of July?  I hope so.  Be sure to sport your red, white and blue in festive ways.  By hopeful, upbeat and never let negative energy, words or anger cloud your day.  This is your life, and your time so don't waste it with the gloomy verbiage that surrounds us in social media and with the media at large.  Be a spirit of joy and spread wisdom rather than hate. Thus, enjoy the day, embrace your friends, be happy, show love and celebrate your life and this great nation. 


"The American, by nature, is optimistic;  He is experimental, an inventor and a builder who builds best when called upon to build greatly."  President John F. Kennedy







Happy 4th of July! 


Until Next Time!

Monday's Favorite Things - Sunglasses

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.
For example, wear a pair of sunglasses without polarization and investigate a river or lake.  You will not see the fish swimming clearly.  With polarized sunglasses you can see the fish with an eagle eye.  Thus, my fascination with wearing only polarized lenses. 
By the way, I wear sunglasses year-round protecting from…

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. …

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?

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 …
