Monday Muse

When it comes to style I definitely believe that less is more.  Too much of anything, for me, is gaudy, overdone and overall unattractive.  Parisienne women have this concept down to a science.  Make-up is natural, hair is effortlessly tousled and plastic surgery is almost non existent. There’s no better example of this than model/music producer Caroline de Maigret.  Her …

Kate Moss recently turned 40 and I don’t think there’s anyone cooler or chicer than her.  Kate has been a fashion icon for about 25 years and her impeccable personal style has never waivered.  She has a perfect combination of edgy, with classic but feminine vibe.  Even looking back to the Johnny Depp days, Kate has stayed true to her …

All That Glitters…

Being that I’m in the mountains on vacation mode, I can’t even wrap my head around New Years party garb, but a good sequin takes you from the mountains to the city and everywhere in between.  Although I find New Years parties a bit overrated and underwhelming in the moment, festive, fun sequins is always a party must.  Be safe …
