What Pretty Little Liars Has Taught Me

As I sit here in anticipation for the midnight screening of The Hunger Games, I can’t help thinking about how movies and TV have influenced fashion.  For me, I have always gone to the extreme in inspiration. When I was obsessed with the movie, The Three Amigos, my brother drove down to Tijuana and got me an authentic Three Amigos outfit complete with a matching sombrero. You can bet I wore that thing out and about. When the movie Clueless…

Clowning and Life

This year I told myself I was going to take more action and do things that scare me or make me want to hide. One of these things is to take a clown class. Back in NYC when I first took the class, I use to dread it. I would love watching everyone else participating, but I hated it when it was my turn. I could never just let go, release and just have fun. It was a very dark…

The Many Phases of My Style and Life

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about the friendships that I’ve had in my life.  It seems that there is a correlation between my wardrobe and my friendships. Much of my wardrobe and style choices seem to come from whom my friends are at the time, and what stage of life I am in.

Blue Christmas

As much as I love the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it can wear me out. It’s a season full of cheer and jolly, but I can’t help, but feel a bit depressed at times. There’s so much to do and so very little time. I’m a planner, but no matter how much planning I try to do I seem to be running out of time! There’s so much I want to do, so much more to do! I…

Black Friday: Lessons Learned

I begged my fiancé to go to black Friday this year with me. It was going to be the first year that the stores were going to open at MIDNIGHT! That’s 4 more hours of shopping! Plus I gave him the guilt trip of how we were in North Carolina last Thanksgiving and we weren’t able to hit all of my favorite designer stores, so he agreed to join me in this journey. All of Thanksgiving Day I was giddy…
