A Daily Dose of Elegance

This is taken from Madame Genevieve Antoine Dariux's book A Guide to Elegance

    " Elegance is something more than ease- more than a freedom from awkwardness and restraint. It implies a precision, a polish, and a sparkling which is spirited, yet delicate." (Hazlitt)

Stay tuned for more Elegance!

The movies that inspire me at the moment

1.Breakfast at Tiffany's - "It's useful being top banana in the shock department"

2. Pretty in Pink-"I just want them to know that they didn't break me"

3.The Way We Were-"No, don't change. You're your own girl, you have your own style"

4.Clueless- "Searching for a boy in high school is as useless as searching for meaning in a Pauly Shore movie"

5.Love Story- "Love means never having to say you're sorry"

Wishful Makeuping

   To be 17 and have dark circles is quite misfortunate...well that is my fortune. No, matter how much I sleep they exist and prey upon my vanity.I finally decided to take action as the eye cream that I was using was not doing its job. I was at cvs on March 3rd and  finallybought the garnier nutrtitoniste eye rollerball. Compared to the eye cream I was wearing at 13$ it's not expensive. When I put it on, I felt like spinning around and clicking my heels twice. If only makeup was magic.
    This of course brought, to my mind pretty in pink and "wishful makeuping". This movie has been on repeat in my dvd player with prom looming towards my future. It is April 17th and my dress is divine.That will be a later post. My final words on the product: It is now the 7th and I have seen no improvement in my horrific dark circles. TBC.....

To Harp or Not?

  In my opinion as a fashion lover you are either a Vogue devotee or a Harper's Bazaar devotee. I happen to be a Harper's girl and have been since the age of 12 when I found it in my Gram's house. At that time I knew next to nothing about fashion,except that I liked to shop. Opening this magazine was like stepping into a world full of glamour and one that mine could not compare to.
  It was comperable to about a year before when I walked into Gucci in Charleston South Carolina with my bestie JMM. Opening a new issue of Harper's is like reliving that moment in Gucci over and over again. This, month beloved supermodel Kate Moss graces the cover with 488 pages in all my years of reading it this may be the most inspirational and largest issue yet. It, was so fabulous I carried it in my DVF tote bag with me to school. I relish the looks I get when I pull out a fashion magazine at a conservative private school in the south. Thank, Chanel I don't care what they think.
*These are a few of my favorite things*
  My favorite article would have to on controversial socialite Lynn Wyatt she is quite the quotable woman, "Jewelry can never be too heavy and heels can never be too high."
The best fashion spread goes to Karl Lagerfield and his amazing ability to capture Iris Strubegger in seven different forms including his own.
The best always in issue would have to be the What's in and What's out  which is the last page of the magazine. The best in/out would go to #5 which is in "whimsical embellishement" and out "weighty beading"....although why not try whimsy encased in beads? Remember to make a statement sometimes you have to break the rules.
