Personal style is just that- personal. Everyone has their own personal sense of style and many times that unique presentation only works for that person.
My recommendations are shared to get you to think about your own style ‘outside the box’.
My intention here is to give you some confidence to try something new. I would hate to impose my personal style onto another individual. I think everyone intuitively knows what works for them, but many of us simply do not have time to pull it all together in a cohesive way to make an easy to wear collection of clothing suited for one’s lifestyle.
That is where the expert assistance of a friend (Lisa Ann) can help. Call or write an email to me with questions or problems that you want solved. It is only hard work up front, once you have a good handle on your personal style everything falls into place. The only things you buy and keep are those that emulate that style. Your closet and life become a whole lot simpler.

I am not suggesting that anyone go crazy, Ghetto Fabulous. What I am inferring with that phrase ‘Ghetto Fabulous’ is taking the urban style and incorporating that into a fashion trend or twist to your ordinary by adding a little hipness of the high end brands creating a bit of attitude.
On a more conservative tone, I am pulling out some of my summer products that I so love. My Helen Kaminsky summer raffia bags that I found on the cheap at Marshalls are ready to be used. My Kenneth Cole www.kennethcole.com gentle souls shoes which I wore to death last summer are back- one pair of red ballet flats and one black thong sandal.
I had the good fortune of going to Symphony Hall in Boston for the opening night at the Pops with the Boston Pops Orchestra & Natalie Cole doing jazz standards last Wednesday evening. I am ready for summer events. I invite any and all to contact me with any ideas for social summer events that we can attend. We have to make the best use of these summer months.

This quote came over my Internet from Oxfam today…It is mind boggling and I for one do not know what to do, as many NPR news reports claim that aid is being stopped. Oxfam has set up a way to make donations to help this cause. What else can we do?
