My son graduated from high school today. It was a reminder of how fast time flies and how important it is to be in the moment, you don't get them back, appreciate them while they are happening. My priority has always been my son and daughter. Today, I was filled with emotion - it was a beautiful moment indeed.

My Favorite Things: Hoop Earrings

A lot of people associate oversized hoop earrings as a part of my signature style. Here's a look at some of my favorites from Lanvin bamboo, rhinestone, a copper pair that I bought in Japan recently, black, textured and a pair that measure an 8 inch circle. The bigger the better for maximum impact.

Vintage Pumps: Charles Jourdan

I've been a shoe girl all my life. In the late 70's owning a pair of Charles Jourdan shoes was so chic, I loved his shoes . If you appreciate vintage fashion, as I do you must know of this classic brand.

These adorable illustrations for designer Lamija remind me of paper dolls, which I loved growing up and my daughter. Fond memories of all of her drawings, which I still keep in a massive folder.

Another cool use of music to compliment the collection.

I like the way designers incorporate music, lighting and set design when showing their collections creating a complete atmosphere.


Age is opportunity no less, than youth itself, though in another dress,
And as the evening twilight fades away, the sky is filled with stars, invisible by day.
