still like them, the fashion shows I mean… occasionally.
like more than that, however, is observing people. Especially
people who are contributing something substantial to society or
themselves. That observation becomes even more interesting when
these special individuals are looking great doing it. That, by
definition, might be dressing stylishly, practically and
elegantly, (not to mention comfortably), and carrying around a
kind of glow that comes from an inner confidence and the
personal joy of achievement. Not that new standardized look that
comes from loads of Botox or plastic surgery.
it boils down to is a debate on Style vs. Fashion, and yes these
two are distinctly different. Fashion equates to a kind of terminal trendiness. It’s about what, or “who” (as
the case has become), you are wearing. As a result I believe
that much of the fashion world can be cruel, non inclusive and
completely undemocratic. Especially for women.
on the other hand is much more than “clothes”. Style is a
concept which affects every part of our lives in an exhilarating
kind of way. It’s about literature, society, culture, the arts,
food, wine, and most importantly, how we, as individuals fit and
function in the greater scheme of things in this world.
to discuss what we should, could or want to wear. I want to be
practical about it, I want to be stylish about it and I, like
anyone else want to enjoy it. No, I want to love it. But I
want it to be only a part of who I am. I don’t want to be
consumed by what, (or who) I’m wearing and how I look.
are too many delicious opportunities in this world and so little
time to explore them all. It seems a pity to waste one more
moment than necessary standing in front of your closet wondering
what to wear or lamenting your imperfections, (and heaven knows
we all have plenty of those).
site I hope to achieve what has been a personal quest for me
through all of my adult life. Balance.
discuss style, what to wear and how to wear it. What to
collect, how to feel good wearing it and how to always look
appropriate no matter what the fashion publications are saying.
The importance of classics and, yes, when to add a flashy trend
item and do it all with ease.
you’ll read this. I don’t want to be the only woman out there
doing it and feeling this great
