Confessions,
Nomad in style?
I’m a big fan of the Sunday Styles Section in the New York Times. This weekend I read an article that I can’t get out of my head. It’s about Fabrice Grinda who, approaching 40 years old and despite being worth approximately 100 million dollars, decided to give up his lavish estate (including a butler) […]

I’ve always wanted prettier, more perfect closets but haven’t invested the time or money. I’ve aspired to have my closet look […]

How to wear red
It’s a myth that redheads can’t wear red. Everyone get’s a shade of red in their 12 tone seasonal palette. 12 tone seasonal color is the type of color analysis which I’m trained in and do my style practice….. it is more precise than Color me Beautiful that has only 4 different seasons….
