The Little Bra Company

I have always been drawn to the timeless beauty of seasoned products ripe with history.  I like the backstory, even if it’s a figment of my imagination.  When I was in my 20’s, I used to scour the retro clothing stores in NYC searching for unique pieces of vintage clothing that expressed my proclivity for  nostalgic chic.  I collected hand decorated cashmere sweaters, replete with satin ribbons and crystal buttons.  I donned cut glass deco … Read More

Honestly, I truly hope that what they say about events happening in threes is true, because after this week-end, I have had enough!  First, the airline lost my baggage, which is unbelievable since it was a carry on that I door checked and watched being ferried down the jet way.  It’s still not back, 2 days later.  Then, I drafted this week’s Brief on Saturday, but on Sunday morning, when I turned on my laptop, … Read More

Enormous bowls of silken pink

Curled into the sun

Transforming the tree and me to a place of poetry


Light has shifted in the western hemisphere and it is … Read More

Bottoms Up ~ Sassybax

As a little girl, I imagined myself a ballerina, fully anointed in a tutu and pink ballet slippers.  I would be the reincarnation of Tinker Bell, floating on air, whisper light with the charming mystique of this charismatic fantasy, a fairy princess.   It was not until I was a teenager when my mom gave me tickets to the Joffrey Ballet dress rehearsals, that I became acquainted with the pulsating power of modern dance and the … Read More

The Essential Woman

seven_stones_350bYesterday was a pretty hectic day.  I was up and out by 7 AM for an appointment and back at my desk by 9.  Then, quite unexpectedly, I was training into Manhattan by 5 PM to meet my nephew for dinner and a show.  After the performance, a private backstage tour capped the day.  Exhilarated and exhausted, we arrived back in Westchester after midnight.   I am happy that the week-end is a casual affair.  I … Read More
