R-E-V-O-L-U-T-I-O-N-A-R-Y……say the word out loud. How does it make you feel? It gives me goosebumps because it describes people who are fearless, radical, avant-garde, inspirational and on the forefront of a movement to make things better for all of us, whether it be political or creative. I went to the Brooklyn Museum to see the Georgia O’Keefe exhibit, and happened upon another exhibit entitled “WE WANT A REVOLUTION”, about Black women artists in the 60’s and 70’s and it made me wonder if I’d ever been a part of a revolution or is my time yet to come.
Revolutionaries are often forgotten or never acknowledged for their contributions, but their impact is nonetheless felt. When we think of shapewear we think of … Read more
I get so revved up about the beach that I start packing long before the first summer weekend begins on Fire Island. Sharing a beach house with numerous people requires a wee bit of discretion with regard to how much of yourself you let “hang out”, even among the dearest of friends.
Packing for the beach house is a dilemma as I must pack for the summer and leave whatever has been chosen in the house for the duration. There are different moments at the beach as there are in the city and cooking, lounging, exercising, and socializing require well thought out undergarments. Ultimately beach life is about comfort for the body and soul, so shapewear as we know it is forbidden.… Read more
I wasn’t prepared for the impact of Big Little Lives on my Sunday evenings. I was even less prepared for its departure, leaving an entertainment void I don’t know how to fill. I’m not one to gravitate to films or TV shows centered around entitled people with problems most of us would be happy to have, yet I was captivated for 7 weeks. I was captivated by the acting, mesmerized by the California coastline, horrified by the secrets, obsessed with the soundtrack (do your soul a favor and download the soundtrack on Spotify) and envious of the wardrobe, the underpinnings in particular and how they helped to define these women.
Being a human mannequin, Nicole Kidman received the most … Read more
Last November I fell victim to my obsession with director Pedro Almodovar films, and signed up for nightly tickets to his film retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art. I love his depiction of women, his attention to the detail of their struggles and the men who worship them. One of his more popular films is “Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down”, I’ve seen it a half dozen times and it isn’t even my all-time favorite of his films. It is about a beautiful actress abducted and tied up by a young obsessed Antonio Banderas and not to give anything away but how their “relationship” evolves. While the title suggests bondage and sadistic behavior, that would be too simplistic, and ultimately the … Read more
Watch in action, the drawings of Best Supporting Actress ~ Viola Davis & Best Actress ~ Ruth Negga’s gowns on the Red Carpet.
We watch and we judge. We judged the performances they gave and the dresses they will wear to receive their accolades. I love the Oscars and I don’t believe I have missed….blah blah blah
Okay, that was my opener BEFORE the Oscars aired last night, so let me start again WHOA! WTH!?? I am over the moon that Moonlight won Best Picture, I adored that movie, no slight to LaLand but Moonlight was magical…..
I loved the Red Carpet, I loved seeing who was with who, and I loved the acceptance speeches. I loved everything about … Read more
