The Lucid

In my dream last night I said, “why am I adhering to the laws of gravity?” And then.. I began to fly. It felt delicious.

Flying dreams fall under a category of dreams known as lucid dreams. Lucid dreams occur when you become aware that you are dreaming. Many dreamers describe the ability to fly in their dreams as an exhilarating, joyful, and liberating experience.

If you are flying with ease and are enjoying the scene and landscape below, then it suggests that you are on top of a situation. You have risen above something. It may also mean that you have gained a new and different perspective on things. Flying dreams and the ability to control your flight is representative of your own personal sense of power.



These recordings changed my life…

I will never be who I was before hearing these powerful words…

Why Don’t You? An Ode To Madame Vreeland.


Why don’t you..paint a map of the world on all four walls of your boys’ nursery so they won’t grow up with a provincial point of view?Diana Vreeland

Diana Vreeland changed the face of fashion and she changed the minds of woman all over the world.

Her Harper’s Bazaar column in the 1930’s had the women of that day inspired to think outside the mundane. I love her. As an ode to DV I made up my own ‘why don’t yous’ and inspire you to do something different.. today and always…

So… Why don’t you….

…Stop watching TV for a week.

…Send an ‘eat your heart out’ pic to your ex with only the words “just saying hi” and when he calls or texts, don’t respond.

…Only listen to music from the 40’s for a spell.

…Acknowledge that your mom did the very best she could then call and thank her.

…Step it waay up at work and then… Ask for a raise.

…Take a trip to Paris with a girlfriend and when you get there make a new “friend”.


…Learn a new language.

…go on a vintage only shopping trip and buy something fabulous.

…Wear red today.

…Kiss a beauttiful stranger

Why don’t you?

Diana Vreeland was a noted columnist and editor in the field of fashion. She worked for the fashion magazines Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue and as a special consultant at the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Field of Dreams

Last night I dreamed of my childhood home in Indiana. It was night and I was laying next to my house in a beautiful field of daffodils. All I felt was peace and the buzzing of bees.

I looked it up in my Dreamer’s Dictionary.. Daffodils: Seen growing out of doors in a garden, or in a field, they indicate an unusually long and happy future.

What did you dream of last night?

It Pours..

I wish tonight was thundering and lightning. Rain pouring down on us.

We’d have to duck into one of those big french doorways to keep from getting wet… Between the laughter, the brandy we drank and the noise from the rain.. we would make love…

I don’t care who sees us..

Me as I was..

It’s easy for the the days to start to run together as time moves so quickly and it’s even easier to lose sight of why we came.

The mundane aspects of life coupled with a blinding drive for success can cause us to forget what it’s all about.

Do you remember why you wanted to dance? Do you remember why you wanted to fall in love? Why you wanted to make people laugh? Why you wanted to paint? Why you wanted to be a designer? Why you wanted to teach?

When you catch yourself, like I did, stuck in the not real or worried about illusions.. Remember.

You only want the things you want because you feel you will be happier in the having of those things.. so why not feel good now? Go to the beach. Hang out with people who understand you. Cook an amazing meal. Dance to old music. Sing in the shower.. FEEL GOOD NOW!

I always think of these words from the play Six Degrees Of Separation:

“This is what I dreamt. I didn’t dream, so much as realize this. I feel so close to the paintings. I’m not just selling them, like, pieces of meat. I remembered why I loved paintings in the first place, what got me into this. I thought… dreamt… remembered… how easy it is for a painter to lose a painting. He paints and paints, works on a canvas for months, and then, one day, he loses it. Loses the structure, loses the sense of it. You lose the painting.”

Dont lose your painting..

There is nothing more paramount than seizing the day.. Carpe Diem

Miss Loulou De La Falaise

Designed prints for Halston. Created jewelry for Oscar De La Renta. Married a descendant of Balthus. Muse to Yves Saint Laurent.

You would think I was talking about 4 different people but no, I am referring to the one and only Loulou De La Falaise.

De La Falaise was pioneer in style and my inspiration not just for fashion but because she lived life fully.

Many know that I adore the art, fashion and films of the seventies and I cant imagine seeing iconic images of that era without De La Falaise.
‘Everything was terribly inspiring,’ de la Falaise reminisced about seventies Paris, ‘The models were great fun, they were very inventive themselves style-wise and designers were very influenced by the way people put together a look. We didn’t have any money and that made us all the more inventive.’

The Morning After…

“It should take you exactly four seconds to cross from here to that door. I’ll give you two.” -Holly Golightly



I don’t know if you love Holly Golightly as much as I do but the movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” is Pure Brilliance.

I fell in love with Holly’s lost girl character, her charm and of course her clothes.. But I think above all, that damn party scene is the best I have ever seen in film.. I don’t even know if I’ve been to a party that great.

But… back to the style…

Hepburn as Holly, carrying an oversized cigarette holder, is considered one of the most iconic images of 20th century American cinema.  Another iconic item throughout the movie is Holly’s sunglasses. Often misidentified as Ray-Ban, they are Manhattan sunglasses manufactured by Oliver Goldsmith. In 2011 the model was re-released to mark the 50th anniversary of Breakfast at Tiffany’s. One of three dresses designed by Givenchy for Hepburn for possible use in the film sold at auction by Christie’son December 5, 2006 for £467,200 (~US$947,000), about seven times the reserve price. The little black Givenchy dress worn by Hepburn in the beginning of the film is cited as one of the most iconic items of clothing in the history of the twentieth century and perhaps the most famous little black dress of all time.
