Your Unique Image

July 30th, 2014

Steven Spielberg, one of America’s greatest directors had a mentor early on in his career. He said he failed at times but more importantly for Spielberg, it allowed him to learn from his mistakes and come out stronger on the other side. A mentor was exactly what Spielberg needed. As Spielberg puts it, “the delicate balance of mentoring someone is not creating them in your own image, but giving them the opportunity to create themselves.” 

I couldn’t have said it better. This is and always has been my objective from the day I began my business.  Shopping and dressing can be stressful for you and many people because that’s not of interest to you and where you excel or choose to excel.  I’m not here to judge you.  In fact, I’m glad, otherwise there would be no need for my services.   On my initial consultation with a possible client I ask questions and listen to their likes, dislikes, lifestyle and the ideals they hope to gain in our working together.   I always tell my clients we need to be honest with one another from affordability to how you love or hate an outfit and know that “no question is stupid”.  While shopping or organizing with you I want it to be educational and fun even though it’s stressful for most of my clients that’s why they hire me.   My image is who I am and I want your image to be yours.

We All Start Out Knowing Magic

July 16th, 2014

 

 

 

“We all start out knowing magic. We are born with whirlwinds, forest fires, and comets inside us. We are born able to sing to birds and read the clouds and see our destiny in grains of sand.

But then we get the magic educated right out of our souls. We get it churched out, spanked out, washed out, and combed out. We get put on the straight and narrow path and told to be responsible. Told to act our age. Told to grow up, for God’s sake.

And you know why we were told that? Because the people doing the telling were afraid of our wildness and youth, and because the magic we knew made them ashamed and sad of what they’d allowed to wither in themselves.”

~ Robert R. McCammon, American Novelist, Boy’s Life (1991)

Czech Republic Bambas Luxury Handbag Collection

July 2nd, 2014

 

We recently visited the Czech Republic (a place we love and where my family originated).   I came across a luxury handbag shop in the village of Cesky Krumlov.   They make accessories and mens wallets as well.

Bambas is a small family business that uses the finest Italian leather then designs and  hand-paints directly onto the leather by local artists.  The bags’ designs are conservative to over-the-top artistic.  They are expensive as you would expect being high quality and hand-designed from beginning to end.

One bag I specifically loved was black with poppies painted on it.  This reminded me of the Czech roadsides filled with poppies in the month of May.  However I chose not to buy the bag because of the steep price and thinking how I like to change bags.  Who knows maybe one day a Bambas bag will show up on my front doorstep.

Check “Czech” out their website for different designs.  Bambas Handbags from the Czech Republic
