The Sheer Luxury of Daytime Boudoir

  The last time I worn this sheer embossed robe I was literally shedding the shame of diabetes for T1D Exposed Nude advocacy calendar photo-shoot. Since that liberating experience earlier this year at studio 23 with Tara Layman Photography I’ve been waiting for the right moment again to wear it – today is that day. Wearing nightwear as daywear can be a hit or … Read More The Sheer Luxury of Daytime Boudoir

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

Are you a Good Girl?

The simplest answer to the aroma of luxury begins with perfume, like all beautiful things, a nonchalant spritz can provide a moment of opulence. What is it from within the commercial beauty industry that keeps us aroused? Perhaps its current trends, media billboards or simply the celebrity and couture model endorsements we see in today’s elite fashion publications. However there is an aspect of … Read More Are you a Good Girl?

Retro Cat-Eyed Glamour

Judging from the plethora of eye-catching retro-inspired eyewear that’s been getting face time – from the ready to-wear runways of NYFW to the sprawling city streets of Los Angeles – it’s clear that sunglasses have stayed within a chic Joan Crawford meets Marilyn Monroe, style aesthetic. It’s this shift which reflects the current look-at-me trends – retro, vintage-inspired frames, chunky cat eyed tortoise shells … Read More Retro Cat-Eyed Glamour

Dark Romance in All Ginned Up

With wings, black as night, black as coal, the Raven is a messenger from another world. When it makes, its presence known to you, a mysterious flight of dark romance and beaconing confidence is received. There is no sense of time as the raven lives in the void of the moment.

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

An Amphitheater of Roses with Theresa

Life is all about inspiring others, as we all have an incredible opportunity to influence the next individual that crosses our path. This is why we purposely must always be aware of how our verbal and physical actions are carried out and come from a place of authentic love.

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

A Charming Stroll Through Claremont Upland with a Portrait of a Lady

Built in 1921, the Claremont Upland historic district of Berkeley, adjacent to the Claremont Hotel, gives such a nostalgic feeling of an era gone by. Standing before such quaint, picture-perfect Craftsman-style homes of the neighborhood, I often wonder if some are still owned by their original tenants. Many of us know that home is where the heart is – in my case, it’s my … Read More A Charming Stroll Through Claremont Upland with a Portrait of a Lady

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

A Vintage Life That Only gets Better with Time

At 5:30 a.m. I awake with a burst of energy as I am a morning person by nature and on occasion, a night owl.  Reaching over, I promptly grab my … Read More A Vintage Life That Only gets Better with Time

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
