POSTS IN CREATING

Making My Way

It has been a very busy, yet exciting time. I have been in a commercial, it has been NYFW, and I am putting the finishing touches on my book proposal. And you know the usual...teaching, living, spoiling my granddaughter and cooking soup. The ordinary still continues...

The Shifting Nature of Reality

The photo I chose to post today, which is in contrast to the last one I posted on Instagram, is about what I am thinking of as retro-reality. In this photo I have my two feet firmly planted on the ground, I am sitting in front of an actual brick and mortar retail...

Realness: A Digestive Essential

Photo: Michael Paniccia I know it’s been a long hiatus since I posted. Some of it has been the holidays, some of it as always is having lots going on. But more of it probably is that I feel I have reached a saturation point. I am satiated with constant, fast and ever...

Grateful

I must confess I have been a little uninspired lately.  It has become my daily habit to review a number of  fashion oriented web platforms for the purpose of staying in touch, finding interesting articles for my fashion bibliography and well frankly to get...

Earth Tones

As many of you might have noticed, I have been pretty obsessed with wearing earth tones lately. My life has been flying high (both literally and figuratively) traveling the last two weekends, first to London and then to Florida for a social work conference. Early...

Throwing Up My Hands!

Story in a Bottle

I have always been a very dramatic, as in performative, kind of person. My nickname as a child, bestowed by my father, was Sarah Bernhardt. Always living in worlds far away from the one I actually lived in, books at that time were the way I became a global citizen. It...

On the Fence

I have been thinking this week about how much black and white thinking is becoming the hallmark of many of our current conversations, including those occurring in the world of fashion, the wrist I touch to take the pulse of society. I decided to post a photo of me...

Recovering “Rightness”

Lately I have been having some difficulty finding something to wear. I know that sounds ridiculous as I have several racks of clothing in my home and packages come at least once a week. Usually there is a seamless coherence between who I am and what I decide to wear....

Pleasure Principle

Because I am thinking about the issue of “retirement” (oh that word!!!!), I have been thinking about risk. I think about leaving a societally sanctioned, predicable and low-risk environment to enter into a space that is yet defined and actually controversial.  I also...

Cultural Expression

Well it is that time of year again, Fashion Month and New York kicks it off as always. For those who can't attend, click on the photo and see what inspired the New York Designers this year.  

A Cultural R(evolution)

“Fashion is part of the daily air and it changes all the time, with all the events. You can even see the approaching of a revolution in clothes. You can see and feel everything in clothes” — diana Vreeland This week, four years ago, I wrote my first post. I was...
