Jumping in with Both Feet

Most things become ours and even us when we accept it. And when it comes to wearing clothes, confidence and commitment show, as any hesitation would have the clothes wearing us. If you are going to wear it, then embrace it. Make it yours and the love shows.

The Season

This for me is summer in a picture. Colors which are deep and rich, but not dark. Textures imparted by silk and linen: light and airy, all the better to compliment the shine of the sun and the breeze of the day. Made up as an unlined tie, casually going about the day without a worry of wrinkles or anything else for that matter.

Taking Care

If you are going to wear something two days in a row, be sure to air it out on a hanger between wearings. That will keep odors down, and let wrinkles fall out, leaving you looking and smelling fresh.

The Good Life

Clothes can become all-consuming, an experience encompassing more than acquiring the latest must-have, chasing trends and looking for newness. There is fashion history - rich with inspiration - across cultures and societies. Details of materials and make inform, leading one to appreciate what is rare and time consuming over that which is readily available. All the better as relationships with designers and artisans are nurtured. We become discerning, outfits turn into wardrobes, and style takes the place of trends. We dress ourselves and for ourselves.
