Redefining the “Beach Body”

My mind and my heart belong to the past, and ironically, my body shape reflects that. I have a 1950s body that may not fit the context of today, but I don’t see it as outdated.   I love my curves, and the unique way they take shape to clothing. Yes, my shape may not […]

Court-Chic: What I Wore To Hampton Court

As a young girl, I always dreamt about being a princess. Didn’t we all? With Disney Princesses and Story Book royalty as our guides, nothing probably suited us as five year olds more than the idea of wearing a gold crown and holding the keys to a kingdom. Therefore, a girl with these dreams may […]
