Celebrating Women’s Day

It’s always inspiring to see women all over the world be recognized in so many ways. Today we celebrate International Women’s Day and will likely see trending hashtags such as #WomensDay and #adaywithoutwomen. The ‘Day Without Women’ is a movement where according to the Women’s March website, ” is to recognize the enormous value that women of all backgrounds add to our socioeconomic system, while receiving lower wages and experiencing greater inequities, vulnerability to discrimination, sexual harassment and job insecurity.” YouTube has also created the #HerVoiceIsMyVoice channel to also celebrate and honor international women around the world.  In my book, women’s day is every single day of the calendar year. I come from a family lineage of strong, nurturing, caring and tenacious women. I learned so much from listening and watching these women speak their mind and make a difference in the lives of those around them. My mother Sabina…

Let’s be honest, everyone’s goal is to hit that carpet and be on the ‘best dressed’ list the next day so every inch of detail has to be mindfully decided.

‘M’ is for Menswear Style That Inspires Women’s Fashion

Menswear style has impacted women’s style for hundreds of years. Women have taken on menswear style in versatile ways and now it is part of the most favorite looks seen from street style to the runway. It was the year 1966 when Yves Saint Laurent introduced the world to the tuxedo style ‘smoking jacket’ for women and infusing sex appeal to it. The fluidity between men and women’s style have grown even more so in past decades with androgyny type fashion on red carpets, movies (hello ‘Annie Hall’) and in the music scene as well. Let’s face it, trousers can be as sexy as a pencil skirt if worn the right way. We know that fashion icon Coco Chanel embraced the look without reservations in her days back in the early 1920s. Legends of Old Hollywood like Katherine Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Marlene Deitrich and Rita Hayworth all embraced a sweater or button…
