Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody

Did you see the movie? I really enjoyed it. It was great having Freddie Mercury’s unabashed style and air of rebellion back in our consciousness. Mercury was a style icon. His glam, bohemian fashion flair, showed the world he was free from the conformity of others.                 What we wear, how we wear it and when we wear it can visually communicate who we are, our social influences as well as our ambitions and emotions. For over 200 years, the Bohemian style has been an alternative to social and political principles. "Bohemian" was associated with artists, writers, and intellectuals, who were the counter-culture...

Are You Traveling Anywhere Soon?

I was recently reading an article on Oprah.com entitled “What the Most Stylish Women Wear to the Airport” Of course, these stylish celebrities wore designer track suits, all black jeans and tees or blue jeans and tees etc. etc. etc. The same clothing that we all wear when traveling, because the object is to be comfortable, cozy and casual. I’m going to add the word “creative” too, at least that’s what you get when you add my versatile LuLuwrap to the mi If you are planning a trip you should know that the LuLuwrap is perfect for traveling.

Time to Clean Out your Closet

Time to Clean Out your Closet

Now that Autumn is 3 days away it's a great time to take a look at your wardrobe and reevaluate what no longer looks good on you or is just plain worn out - what you should keep and what clothes are destined for donation. I like to do this twice a year. Most of us accumulate clothing every season. We've convinced ourselves that getting new clothes will make us more joyful, more fashionable, and more popular. Have you ever thought of really pairing down and owning fewer clothes?   As I was cleaning out my closet a few years back I started to wonder how my...

Do You Wear Strength and Femininity?

Kudos to Serena Williams. She's got fashion flare. She's got strength. She's got balls and not just tennis balls   Upon Serena Williams return to the game at the French Open, she wore a compression catsuit that was designed exclusively for her to help prevent blood clots after the birth of her daughter. She even dedicated the suit to the mothers who have experienced complications following pregnancy. The French Tennis Federation officials went crazy and declared that her catsuit "will no longer be accepted."   The catsuit that created a new dress code! So now she's rockin' a tutu! Cut to the U.S. open and Serena's...

Free to Experience the World

Free to Experience the World

I just found this photo of me at 17 from my Senior yearbook. It was fun looking back. I wondered . . . would I do anything differently in hindsight? Absolutely I would but we rarely get that option in life. Back then I had no idea of what I wanted to do other than get out of college and be free to experience the world. I got a job working at a chic clothing boutique and saved my money, sold my Healy 3000 (wish I had it today!!!) and bought a 1 way ticket to London. On my way! I was so excited. I...
