Look & Feel Like a Million-“Air”
“Read with me!”
[Feng Shui Chic]: The Take Ten Zone
The “Golden” Coin- I wear my “Golden” coin as a potent majesty to empower me. My “Golden” coin compass will keep me on course.
Hello Beautiful, I am often asked what my style is. Developing your style requires guidance from shopping to selecting colors and learning about your body, after all, one size does not fit all.
My philosophy for both home and fashion is the same, requiring you to be curious, strong when you look in the mirror and see what doesn't work, to have a dash of humor as to what you want to reject. As you stroll the aisles for selections, I say, think of the event, the time of day, this will help you to select “the look.” For romance, classic elegance is couture, or a tad of bobo and fun.
My Mom loved fashion and often engaged with fashion designers in their studios. I was often dressed by these glamorous icons, Bob Mackie, Valentino, and more! I have learned the magic of designers, where passion and art meet. Each designer is a mentor-- an artist who paints his/her canvases with fabrics. I have been fortunate to meet with them to now share their uniqueness. This will help you develop your own unique style. Add this mantra- Fear is not an element for style, change will mirror your inner personality. Each season offers you a variety of vivacious colors, prints and scents, to help reboot, refresh, Have fun, mix and match! Style will open doors to your new vision for self. As you gaze in the mirror, reflect on the inner child that had so much fun dressing up!
I am a New Yorker, the one thing I love is the New York woman wearing her home-- clothing. Whether attending a parent-teacher meeting, or heading to join the “ladies who lunch,” or attending a Gala-- New Yorkers embrace their New York style. These women own fashion via their clothing. You will notice them standing out on a city street hailing a cab or chauffeur. The New Yorkers' attire is a salute with gratitude, humbleness and love for their iconic designers.
I hope to inspire your signature style. Viewing trends, clipping from magazines, and noting your favorite stars is a great way to begin, and ever so helpful. However, you will need to translate and filter these outer influences. I style with accessories to enhance your skin tone and accessories to accent your body. I say, “Clothes don't wear you, or the labels, but you wear the clothes!”
