Wendy Wears It Well!

One of the things I pride myself on as a designer is that I try to make clothes that women can wear -- all women, not just models.  So, it gives me such pleasure to see my pieces on real women with busy lives.  I am lucky to have stylish, confident, smart and sexy clients like Wendy Brandes.  Wendy wears a lot of my pieces and she is probably the best walking advertisement anyone could ask for!  Here is the talented jewelry designer in a dress from my "MODern World" collection...

Way To Go Vogue!

I've not hidden my feelings about the overabundance of actresses showing up on the cover of magazines in the last few years.  Though it is not a new trend, it seems to have become the norm these days.  It's gotten to the point where I'm shocked (and pleased) to see the face of an actual fashion model selling the glossy books.

U.S. swimmer, Ryan Lochte

I'm so desperate that I'll take almost anybody at this point other than Gwyneth, Cate, Kate, Jennifer, Kate again, Kirsten, Kristen and the other Jennifer.  Now, I have nothing against these beautiful women and I hope to be dressing them one day, but I'm old fashioned and like to see models on my magazines.  Well, athletes are fine too!

Lochte's perfect backstroke start

So, when Vogue switched it up in June and featured my boyfriend Olympic swimmer, Ryan Lochte on their cover, I was thrilled.  Oh, I suppose I should mention that tennis great, Serena Williams and soccer goalie, Hope Solo are there as well creating a Ryan sandwich, but let's stay focused okay?  Did I mention Ryan Lochte? 

Vogue cover, June 2012

As a former competitive swimmer, I follow the sport very closely and I know how hard these kids train.  Brutal workouts.  I still shudder whenever I smell chlorine!  I guess I sort of had a love/hate relationship with the sport.  But, I will definitely be glued to the TV in August, sitting on the edge of my seat, biting my nails watching the racing in the pool!


The Dude!

Happy belated Father's Day to my dad!


Go Goth Boy, Go!!

On this blog, I celebrate not only style and fashion, but artistic creative people from all different walks of life.  I'm not a fan of reality TV and all of the "talent" shows that have inundated network television, but while flipping channels tonight looking for an episode of Family Guy or Psych to have on in the background while I do some work, I paused for a moment.  A boy clad in all black stood looking nervous on a stage.  I was curious.  Howard Stern chatted with him to try to put him at ease and then the young Goth started to sing.  Within seconds, jaws dropped, people stood to show their appreciation and eyes welled up with tears because it's emotional to see an underdog triumph and because his voice was so beautiful.  Listen for yourself...

I'm rooting for this kid!
