The Dior Palette


, , , , , , , , ,

Is there anything more feminine than the Dior palette? I’ve always loved the soft greys and peachy pinks that remain the Dior trademark.
When I was a little girl, my mother had a wonderful knee length, Dior, grey coat with a soft fox trim along the hem.  She looked so glamorous in that coat. Sadly, It ended up in the thrift shop heap (probably during the 80’s when glamour meant slashed, neon sweatshirts and jelly pumps). But, today the Dior Palette is back as the most stylish color scheme for clothing and decor. It’s a great time to bring a little Dior into your own life.

Sugar and Spice – A Fairy Tale Life


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hey boys – you can keep your puppy dog tails; we girls are made of fantastic stuff!

Everybody knows that girls posses an inexplicable gift for the power of nurture, compassion, and virtue. It’s certainly no secret that her sweetness is beyond compare. Her spice is what shapes her spirit, as well as ignites her endearing drive to hold fast to hope, even against seemingly impossible odds.  Most people believe that these qualities alone are enough to render her an irresistibly charming creature, who merits nothing less than devoted love.  But, a true scholar on the subject would argue that a girl’s most bewitching characteristic, whether she is 4 or 104, lies in her beguiling ability to harness the magic of the Fairy-Tale Life. Maneuvering through dreamscapes of far away lands, braving enchanted forests and defeating fire breathing dragons is her most basic instinct.  She is not afraid of wild imagination. She embraces immeasurable possibility. She vows always to make believe. And, she holds steadfast to the notion that a little magic can save the day. Certainly, you too have seen the evidence… fairies among the shadows? Bits of forgotten pixie dust strewn about her room? Perhaps, magic wands? Glittering crowns? Unexplained skeleton keys? Unicorn sightings where she has come and gone?  Heed, take a second look- for I assure you it is there. It’s fantastic stuff, something to cherish – the magic of her Fairy-Tale Life.

With love, Kaki
