Makes Women Glamorous and Men Look Twice

There is nothing more sophisticated than a luxurious fur stole to complement a woman’s ensemble, as it can be defined as elegance. Fur coats, shrugs, and stoles were essential to a woman’s wardrobe in the 1940s, as elegant ladies would garnish them over tailored suits and evening wear.  I find women are keen to attempt such a trend, but hesitate for a number of … Read More Makes Women Glamorous and Men Look Twice

You See me Now and Then you Don’t

Glamour is an illusion, a form of mystery revealing a fragile state that changes with time. Glamour, from my perspective, is defined as recreation from all facets of our lives. Perhaps the best way to describe it is with a ravishing red lipstick, a sensual hourglass silhouette, and style inspiration from such mavens as Rita Hayworth, Ava Gardner, and Jayne Mansfield. While many may … Read More You See me Now and Then you Don’t

Wisteria in Bloom

Today I present the idea, “To thine own self be true” a quote by Shakespeare that could be seen as the soundest advice ever given.

Dress like a Lady

Parisians have a distinct sense of style in regards to garment choices. Maintaining confidence through a casual, yet elegant persona, Parisians are viewed as being never over or under-dressed. French muse, Coco Chanel, a legendary designer, believed that an overall ensemble should represent a theme of “less is more.” In following those guidelines, one should apply a sleek, feminine profile, which achieves a subtle choice … Read More Dress like a Lady

Old Hollywood Couture with Corsettery Corsets

When I first set forth within the fashion industry, I was young, inexperienced, and in so many words, a dreamer of grand possibilities.
