A Deeper Thought of Being

  Does the following statement below sound familiar to you? “If only I could HAVE a certain thing, I would DO something, and then I would BE happier.” There are laws which govern the Universe (as many of us are aware of), such as the Law of Gravity. The Law of Gravity is always consistent: if we fall, we will find ourselves rapidly moving … Read More A Deeper Thought of Being

The Eye of the Beholder

The word “beauty” holds more truth than one would think. Couriering self-expression, from one’s physical attributes which in return represents a form of physical beauty. Nonetheless, what you may not realize is beauty evokes an emotion of admiration and awe. It can also appear to be an aristocrat reflection as Plato perceived its rich form as, “Beauty lies in the eye of the Beholder” … Read More The Eye of the Beholder

Decades Away in Jonathan Logan of 1944

Call it destiny, decades away. I’ve often felt that I had been raised in an era that lacks glamour and elegance, which is only today viewed on the red carpet of the Oscars. From a number of afternoons spent delving within the depths of a jewelry box belonging to my namesake and grandmother, I vividly picture these carefree moments spent playing dress up and now … Read More Decades Away in Jonathan Logan of 1944

A Vision of Authenticity in MARGE Clothing

There is something to be said about how a particular designer will convey their personal vision of authenticity. Many brands and product lines have successfully brought such a nostalgic period to today’s market, refashioning yesteryear’s fashion for a luxury minded sophisticated audience. Having previously interviewed Founder and Designer, Kearsten Cooper of MARGE Clothing for VRAI Magazine, I’ve become accustomed to her brands awareness which … Read More A Vision of Authenticity in MARGE Clothing

Death and Life are in the Power of the Tongue

Have you ever wondered what is on the other side of life? I have – ever since 2014 when I was diagnosed as a Type 1 diabetic. From a defining trait to live life rather than just passing time, I find a majority of us to be careless with no acknowledgement of how our actions, daily behavior, and words spoken carry enormous weight to … Read More Death and Life are in the Power of the Tongue

Moments that Define our Lives

Many times in my career as a Writer, Model and Consultant I find myself interviewing the brightest minds within the industry. What I perceive significant with these partnerships (beside their personal stories) perhaps is the possibility to one day meet them in person. Many of you might’ve noticed a harmonious union I’ve formed with Davis Brimberg of Davis Fashion, a Los Angeles based label … Read More Moments that Define our Lives

Embrace the Unbinding Courage within the Journey

The relationship between one’s journey of self-growth and courage tends to evoke feelings of fear, anxiety, and uncertainty, but allowing such emotions to take center stage is moral injustice. I always knew what I wanted to be in my life, as if it was embedded into my genetic makeup, but how and when were the two underlying questions that always plagued me. Sure, the … Read More Embrace the Unbinding Courage within the Journey

An Award-Winning Taste with Women of Wine

Summer days are meant to bask in the sun, lost in conversation over an award-winning glass of Cabernet Sauvignon. Today, I’ve found myself on-location at Silver Oak Cellars strolling through acres of vineyards, with AllVino in mind. As you may know United States is currently the largest wine market in the world, with women producing a greater deal of the country’s wine. For decades women … Read More An Award-Winning Taste with Women of Wine

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

A Gentleman’s Heart

A feminist demand of, “If men can wear this, why can’t I?” comes to mind for those with the heart of a gentleman.  German actress and style icon of the 1930s, Marlene Dietrich, contrasted such a statement with her passionate relationship with her wardrobe, both on and off the screen. Being the first Hollywood actress of her era to wear trousers in public gave … Read More A Gentleman’s Heart

Well-to-do

The start of a new year is always exhilarating; it’s a chance to revamp your existing wardrobe and debut looks never seen before. With these transitions, a few challenges can pose style dilemmas: Which brooch works best with which styled dress or corset perhaps?  Which style millinery goes best with which ensemble? Can I really wear that? This year I’ll be providing my readers with vintage know-how, covering not … Read More Well-to-do
