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.

Home for the Holiday


"With freedom comes responsibility." Eleanor Roosevelt
Parades, apple pie, contests, hamburgers, friends, family, and fireworks are the essential ingredients for a celebratory Fourth of July.  This year will be unforgettable as the Covid 19 virus has changed the celebration landscape.  The large gatherings, festivities and essential mix of fun are on the shelf across the country. We ourselves are accustomed to celebrating in the islands viewing a parade, taking walks, wildlife adventures, exquisite dinners and viewing incredible fireworks that fill the sky.  Though this is year is unique, never fret. 
We have an opportunity to slip back in time and create an old fashioned Fourth of July at home.  Many of you are wondering what to do.  Well, think back to when you were little.  What did you do then? 
Growing up in the Northwest, we had sparklers, black snakes, and fountains to light off in the driveway. We attended barbecues with family or friends and watched…

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?

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 …

Life is a Gift

A River Called Life



"Life is a precious gift.  Use your day wisely." 

Life is a river.  A thriving, glorious flowing body of water that twists and turns filled with fish, beavers, small creatures, birds, eagles, violent eddies, rough waters, and calm pools. Or in our case as human beings doing the best they can as they spend each day rambling down the river of life.  An actual river flows downhill from the force of gravity.  The waters can be wide and deep or shallow to walk across.  This river can be called a stream, creek, or brook.  A once serene rushing river can turn into a flooding nightmare covering land, filling houses, and changing landscapes.  Just like humanity spinning towards the unknown.   
Life can be tranquil at moments and then burst into a storm of anger, disbelief, or tragedy.   A life is easily compared to a roaring river as transitions in our world are extremely rapid.  It can be difficult for the human mind to assess what has transpired.   The result is be…
