Our Hearts Go Out to Napa, Sonoma & Santa Rosa

We have added a Napa/Sonoma/Santa Rosa Donation option to our Giving Back Program. Here's a link so you can learn how you can help. As you'll see we have left the choice of group fairly open in order to lend support to local grassroots type groups.

Our hearts are broken as we continue to watch the effects of the fires and the generous individuals coming from near and far to lend a helping hand. As you may remember, I had the good fortune to live in Mill Valley and work in San Francisco for a few years. Northern California will always hold a special place in my heart. I am happy to lend help wherever I can and so I am asking you to do the same.

It Started with Gucci!

I have had so much fun this past month creating a stream of Style Story posts for my Instagram, Twitter and Facebook feeds. If you don’t follow me on any of these platforms you might want to start — I’ve made it easy with all the social buttons over there in the right hand column. Click on any of them and you are whisked to that particular feed where you can follow me. Any how — I thought it would be fun to replay a few of my favorite selections here.

Keeping it Normal in the Age of Digital

No matter how much control you think you have in life — events come along that prove how wrong you are. Last October, my brother lost his four-year battle with a hideous disease called Myesthenia Gravis. He was just short of his 71st birthday - much too young to leave this place. My brother, who had been my protector in the early years of my life in so many ways, and who continued to be my friend as adults, was gone…just like that. He was a big strong guy as long as I can remember — older brothers are always that, right? It was really hard to watch as a disease destroyed his body and his strength day by day.

Amethyst & the Color Purple

Who doesn’t love the color purple? Well, okay, I am sure there are some of you out there that aren’t nuts about it…and that’s okay. No judgement…remember? We all sit at the same table, right? That being said, I am one of the people who happens to love the color purple; but with limits. I don’t think I would wear purple from head to toe…but wait, I do own purple loafers so I guess I do wear it on my toes!
