What Now Revisiting

I am feeling so inspired and excited by the many suggestions you left for me while commenting on the last post. I have to say that between the Great Interrupter and Black Lives Matter; I feel like I checked into a rehab center. It’s been like a detox from the...

Context and the Meaning of Living Your Best Life

I took a break from social media. At some point the weekend before last I just could not look at one more post, respond to one more comment, or patiently educate. Between the “Great Interrupter” and the Black Lives Matter movement, I experienced a next level reckoning...

No Words

No Words

I’m sitting at my desk for the first time in a week. No writing except for some posts on Instagram. There are no words that I could summon for the task. I don’t think they’re invented yet.  Reaching deep, I can’t find them. The closest word I imagine is grief. A grief...

Mixed Methods: Me and My Hair

Mixed Methods: Me and My Hair

It starts to feel like an obsession. It gets stronger every day. I search for images for just the right look. In the past, I'd scour hair magazines. More recently the internet. I chose a photo to bring to my stylist. The photo represents some new fantasy I've conjured...

Shedding

Shedding

Like everyone else I’m tired of winter, being bundled up and dressing in layers. It’s time to take some of them off. Whether it is those one or two pounds that you need to keep you warm or heavier makeup because you’re so pale; extra highlighter you need to make your...

Tourist Mode

Tourist Mode

Last week the big event in New York City was the opening of Hudson Yards. Called a "dystopian playground" for the rich by some observers, it opened to mixed reviews. It is a 25 billion dollar proposition and the largest urban real estate complex built since...

My Coat(s) and Being Me

My Coat(s) and Being Me

I receive countless comments from my followers across all my social media about how much they admire me just being myself. Somehow this seems very courageous to people. I find that shocking and not shocking. Being yourself and finding ways to express that in how you...

Iconic NYC: Holiday Shopping at Rockefeller Center

Iconic NYC: Holiday Shopping at Rockefeller Center

Whenever I want to get into the holiday spirit the first place I go in NYC, even before the store windows, is Rockefeller Center  I love walking into the space and seeing people ice-skating and of course the famous tree. There is always music and bells and...

Elements of Inspiration: Matthildur

I was so moved by all of the responses to last week's post and feel inspired to continue our reinvention journey together. Of course, for me, every journey needs a wardrobe. One of the most inspiring and life-giving experiences I had over the last year was going to...

Werking With Gurls

Werking With Gurls

I've written before about the experience of having my two worlds collide: being someone who has worked in the service of social welfare and now interested in fashion, representation and the productive use of technology. My definition of social welfare is an...

The Importance of Your Signature: Earrings

The Importance of Your Signature: Earrings

Some of you may have noticed I have been changing my color palette this autumn and winter. As I wrote in a previous post, the earthy brown and rust tones somehow are making me feel more grounded. The pinks are softening my hard edges left over from last...

“For me, a woman who is absorbed in her work, who does not care about gaining one’s favor, strong yet subtle at the same time, is essentially more seductive.
