Fashion or Life inspiring; That is the question.

After 30 years of involvement in the fashion world, not to mention, turning 50 and my life’s over-all perspective-shift, I admit, I needed to find something inspiring for my return to this decade-of- the-fashion-blog-thang. Thankfully, life hands you the key when you are open and ready to receive it. As was/is – Mark Holden.
Let me add an important (and strange!) side-factoid; there isn’t one LBD, or anything colored black, in his entire line! Rather, fashion-forward to- Côte d’Azur bleu, the hue Mark perfected for his Italian-fabricated scarf line; based in Vancouver, Canada.
Of equal importance, his vision was not solely to keep one’s neck luxuriously warm, but our hearts and families warm as well. Previously teaming with Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society, his co. continues to donate a portion of the sales to Just Imagine Foundation.
His message, written by Mark and printed on numerous of his scarves, should wet your food-kitchen appetite and encourage you to stick your neck out for one of your very own! Mark’s intent of illuminating the possibilities of peace should be a daily mantra for All!


Q. I am attending an evening wedding. My dress is Navy and I am wearing nude peep toe heels. What color clutch should I wear?

A. Think of both your navy dress and nude heels as neutrals. Why not have some fun this spring and pop some color with your clutch?! Or, any of the on-trend metallics would be fabulous! Coordinate your jewelry with your choice.
