Float like a butterfly, bling like a bee (says WWD)

•••
Every fashion week we look for the top shows & presentations that lead the pack of inspiration, presenting new ways to share their collections. DANNIJO's BOXERina was one of my FAVES so far! Both beautiful and inspiring, it combined strength and femininity in a modern way that leaves you feeling empowered!

Step into your dream (shoes).

•••
Those who know me know I have had a long-standing love affair with shoes. So much so, that my shoe 'closet' was shared with all when it was photographed by Conde Nast for Footwear News. Funny as it may seem, shoes make me happy, as they do so many other women. This fall, I am simply thrilled with the shoes I am seeing. It seems there's the right fit for ever[...]

My flair for hair...

•••
I've been utterly hair obsessed since I've had locks long enough to brush. I blame this on my mother. As a young woman, she worked alongside her fellow creative hair geniuses coming up with many of the styles we have come to adore today. While her dreams of continuing her career in the Big Apple soon shifted to raising myself and my two younger brothers, he[...]

Seriously the most beautiful fashion editorial I have seen in a long time....

This fashion editorial, meadow sweet, was created for a special May issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK, as a collaborative effort with the V & A Museum in London.

I did this back in high school!

I did this back in high school with my great grandmother's old clip earrings. I'm a vintage junkie so this is so perfect. HonestlyWTF recently had the same idea! Turn your vintage clip earrings into shoe clips and instantly give some glam to last season's flats that need to become a little bit more fabulous!SO much fun...http://pinterest.com/bohomag/

Grace, Grace and more Grace

•••
Grace Coddington's memoir is out! For those fashion folk who know her, getting a glimpse into the inside world of whom I call the original stylist at a US publication(Vogue), is a pure treat! Unlike her previous publications, this memoir recounts some of the most inspiring moments of her career. I leave you with a beautiful description of her book... "Beau[...]

You are...

•••
One of my old Boho mag pages. Just a little inspiration to remind you of what you are...

Your true identity

•••
Sometimes it seems nearly impossible to get excited about your dreams when you feel like the caterpillar and not the butterfly. Butterflies are symbolic of so many things; freedom, wholeness, transformation. However the transition of becoming that butterfly when you are still in the caterpillar stage can feel painful, confusing and downright exhausting at ti[...]

Styling Notes...

•••
As a stylist, my fascination lies in the actual "styling" of fashion over the big picture of the outfit. For example, details like the difference between the proper cuffing vs. rolling(they are different) of a sleeve, grab my attention much more than the actual shirt itself. I've come to my own moment of styling self-discovery that my true affection can be f[...]
