“There is a fountain of youth: It is in your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.” Those sensible and wise words were once said by Sophia Loren. A woman who even today at 81 years of age, still exudes beauty, intelligence and sophistication. We seem to be living in a time when the obsession with beauty is at an all time high.

The fashion runways were also full of metallics for spring/summer including shows from Saint Laurent, Naeem Khan and Chanel. Fashion tip, hold on to your armor and chains as this trend will continue on for fall/winter 2016 as well. No matter if your preference is gold, silver, copper or rose gold, there…
