Dress up and feel fabulous

318013_10152434035650128_1123601145_n - CopyDarlings, I am writing this on a Thursday and musing about what drove the world to “Casual Fridays.” When I Googled the origin of the phrase, I found that some people blamed the dot-com era and geek culture. Others said it began in the 1950s.  I remember it starting in 1970s.

I laughed readings “casual in the workplace means business causal with neatly-pressed slacks for men…” This person is a banker or on drugs, but I like the thinking. I can only dream of a world where everyone is so neatly dressed. Today, too many people look like they sleep in their clothes – and from what I read many do.

I remember when people loved Casual Fridays because it was a chance to wear cute, pressed designer jeans and heels with pretty sweaters to work. Or, if you were very posh, leather pants!

Darlings no matter what is going on in your life it never hurts to feel fabulous. Do it for yourself. Dress up every day! Wear things that make you feel good and make sure you look your best. I don’t mean you have to break out the formal wear; maybe your style is more Lululemon than Lanvin. That’s fine, but make sure that whatever your style, do it well. You owe it to yourself. When you look fabulous you stand straighter, walk a little faster, and smile a little quicker. And, who knows who you might meet or what opportunity could come your way. Even on an ordinary day when nothing usual happens, you will just feel better looking your best. Life is short, making it sweet.

Why bother?

Gracey HitchcockSeeing my article on acne one might think ‘why bother?’ I have noticed that many young women today, though not all, seem less bothered by breakouts and more haphazard in their approach to beauty than women of past generations.
 
On one level that’s great if it is because they are so secure they aren’t self-conscious about a blemish. But I wonder if they are often too stressed to find a solution or take care of themselves. This haphazard approach seems to extend too many areas of their lives.
And there is no doubt that in many ways, women my age including myself often worry about reaching a level of perfection in life that itself is stressful at times.
 
And so once again my darlings, finding the sweet spot is all about finding balance.
Luxury of Pearls --all types of pearls wrapped and ready!

Beauty’s friend

 
Gracey HitchcockAll too often women who are threatened by the idea of beauty dismiss it as too much trouble or vain. But, as the recent Australian study shows much of what makes skin beautiful is healthful. The same sunscreen that protects your skin from deadly cancer is also one of your best beauty treatments. The same can be said for a healthful diet and exercise. Healthful habits are a beauty’s best friend.

Good pearls make everything look fabulous

Luxury of Pearls is my new venture. If haven’t stopped by, I hope you will soon. If you have, please look again as we regularly add new items. I started it because women always want to know where I bought my pearls and how they can buy some too. Often they assume the pearls I am wearing are so expensive, they are out of reach. That just isn’t so! Even though all my pearls are real, most are surprisingly affordable. 
Throughout my career as editor and writer for top fashion magazines and newspapers, I have always Mod Pearls for Springbelieved that all women deserve real luxury. And that they should be able to afford it. 
And once you buy your pearls they will last your lifetime, if you take care of them. As Yves St. Laurent said, “fashions fade, but style is eternal.”
