I love New York City.  It is a microcosm of energy, innovation, and design.  It is a cauldron of extreme contrasts: sophisticated, cool, sultry, novel and classic on one stage.  Its multinational character propagates an environment of creative diversity.  It may be exhausting, but it is always inspirational.  The DNA of this city is unique, a balance of established landmarks and new ideas, a platform for growth.   It was a fitting location and a prescient … Read More


Bottoms Up ~ Sassybax

Road to Rio: Lavit Lingerie

It is so gray outside.  Moods are morose.  Everywhere I turn, all I see is snow.  In the northeast we are on our 7th storm of the season.  Our woodpile is buried in an igloo of ice so profound we can’t tunnel through for fuel to fire the hearth.  We need some mental relief and I for one have always used my imagination to distract me from negative thoughts.  That’s why I am fantasizing … Read More
