Polka-Dot Summer Fashion



The Only Spot








Polka dots are everywhere this summer and rightfully so for this endless circle pattern is desired by all fashionistas.  This elegant dot has been a favorite since the mid-19th century and captured memorable attention when Miss America in 1926 sported a spotted swimsuit. Ever since then, dollops of white or black have been a classic and royal hit.  Whether in a top, pant, skirt or a classic navy polka-do-blue frock, these spots of joy connote happiness, sophistication and flirty fun. 

Or maybe in our minds each dot represents every event, friend or acquaintance we meet in this life?  Thus, the circles of  your life are represented beautifully.  To remain classic, choose black, blue, white or red fabric with little to medium dots versus big spots.   The effect is show stopping and unforgettable. Here are a few favorites to get the polka-dot magic started in your life.

"With just one polka dot, nothing can be achieved.  In the universe, there is the sun, the moon, the earth, and hundreds of millions of stars.  All of us live in the unfathomable mystery and infinitude of the universe.  Pursuing philosophy of the universe through art under such circumstances has led me to what I call stereotypical repetition." Yayoi Kusama

Do you have your polka dot apparel for summer?  If you want to exude self confidence then look no further.  I love my polka dot jeans.  So, fresh, fun and happy.  Step out with style and grace.  And, along the way keep the "Kindness  Movement" in full swing.  Life is glorious, isn't it!  Embrace yourself and others along the way.  Create your own circles of delight. 


"You can't have a bad day in polka dots" Anna Kendrick


Until Next Time!

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.
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. …
