Honestly, when I’m at most confident and comfortable, I need very little to feel wonderful and glamorous. Just a simple color palette of black and white, timeless accessories, red lipstick and incredible heels.
I’m feeling less and less compelled to keep up with trends and more drawn to honing a classic uniform.
Back to the basics for me.
Halston, 1970s. Deep V jumpsuit, ultrasuede jacket.
Vintage, yet timeless and original. A complete departure away from the fashion standards of the 1950s and 1960s.
Halston, who is an incredible example of revolutionary yet simple clothing, put American fashion on the international map. His aesthetic was completely original and can still be mistaken for being quite modern today.
I am inspired to create art and goods that do the same.
I’m not usually drawn to overly colorful looks, but Christian Dior’s 2014 Resort collection is so vibrant and interesting. I love the touches of cobalt blue and traces of yellow, bits of orange and red. Especially in these three looks. They are reminiscent of a Roy Lichtenstein work of pop art.
I’m experiencing a very organic transformation in my thoughts and tastes these days. I like simple and natural, no fuss, authentic and real. Less machines, more handcrafting; less online living, more face to face conversations; less processed food, more fruits and vegetables. All of that.
So it comes as no surprise that my eye has been drawn to the beautiful gifts the earth contains. I love this little grouping of mineral stone accessories. Such great Monday inspiration.

The dipped geo jewelry collection by Jennifer Hagler of A Merry Mishap speaks to me on so many levels. It’s simple, natural and partially covered in gold. Right up my alley. I would love to see this geometric shape repeated on a single pendant necklace with a long chain. How perfect for summer.
