It’s official! Friday, September 22 marks the first day of autumn and I’m easing into the new season with Soft Surroundings, a women’s clothing line offers stylish, luxurious, and comfortable women’s pieces for every size.

Who knew carrying a fishing basket could be so chic? The answer is Jane Birkin, the British actress and singer. You know the mademoiselle of the ’70s with that certain je nais sais quoi. Her last name inspired the eponymous Hermès Birken. I get it, Jane. It makes sense to tote a functional bag to carry all our many necessities. Not […]
Do you notice anything about my photos? Maybe the hands on my hips give me away? I got an attitude because I don’t get to meet Anna Wintour.
