Last week I attended the Gucci preview highlighting the 2017 Cruise collection and a few pieces for Spring & Summer. Alessandro Michele, the creative director of Gucci describes the Cruise collection: “… a beautiful chaos, it is a powerful mix of the past and the present.” I completely agree, it’s a bold balance of classic silhouettes, vibrant colors with adornments displayed in a unique and very modern arrangement. From fur-lined slippers to hand stitched embellishments, each piece is exquisitely crafted. Gah, those tiger fur-lined slides! One of everything, please!
Welcome to 2017! We made it, can you believe it? 2016 was quite the year for so many reasons. I’ve never been one to make new year resolutions or drastic changes at the start of the new year. Though, this year I want to slow down to enjoy the small things and focus on growth. So far, this means creating obtainable goals and writing them down – career opportunities, the direction of Taffeta and Cedar, traveling, and volunteering more, just to name a few! For me, 2017 is going to be about change! Yes, everyone always says that, but I tend to be resistant to some types of change. Hence the need for a solid goal list! What about you? What is something that you are focusing on this year? Comments and emails are always welcome!
Later this week I’m heading to the Florida beaches for a few days. I’m super excited about all the sunshine, sand, and palm trees awaiting me! Summer is my season, and going to the beach is always on the top of my list. Here are a few of my go-to beach favorites!
April 18-24 is World Recycle Week. H&M around the globe will be accepting your unwanted clothes. Their goal is to collect 1,000 tons of clothing items to recycle, repurpose and reuse. This weekend is the perfect time to spring clean that closet. Read more about the ongoing garment recycle program at H&M here. Climate change is real, please do your part!
