Met Gala 2019- What’s Camp??


This year the Met Gala was a little confusing for me. First some of the celebrities who usually show up were noticeably absent.

5 Versions of the Little Black Dress (LBD)


I love a “little black dress” for formal or semi-formal events! The LBD is traced as far back as to the designer, Chanel.  They are very versatile that’s why I like them.

Faux fur is popular again. What I have learned is that there are responsible ways that are government-mandated to breed animals for food and the fur industry. While PETA sanctions faux fur, many of the manufactured furs are created from non-biodegradable chemical based synthetics. Is there any manufacturing that is done considering our planet??
