Brand of Elegance

I think that is the whole process. Your brand of elegance. We all have an idea of what elegance is and who has it and who we admire for having 'it'. "It" now has a term. The IT factor is YOUR brand of elegance. It's not something that should be defined by anyone but celebrated by everyone when we see. Give a coy smile to the other women on the street who is exhibiting her brand of elegance.

It's like when I lived in a small town in the southern United States, every time we passed another car we'd wave. When I moved to a larger town in the same state, every time we passed another Jeep Wrangler we'd do the Jeep wave.

Let's do the same with every elegant women or man we pass, let's give a coy smile of acceptance and knowledge.

BTW, yes I still own a Jeep Wrangler and you should see the men stop and watch as I get in and out of my doorless, topless Jeep Wrangler in a shift dress and high heels. There is my brand of elegance, turning convention on its head!

Curly Hair

Why is it we always want what we dont have?

I have curly hair, not tight curls but I can get very nice ringlets.

But for years, hair that has been beaten into submission with flat irons and chemicals has been all the rage.

Lately, I've seen more and more curled hair and that makes me happy.

So, today I ditched the straight hair (and the blow dryer for a matter of fact) put in the conditioner, finger rolled the curls and went on with my day. I did have to wear my MAC Viva Glam A88 (RED) for fun. But the whole look is fun. I have a great 1920's hair cut, with a modern flair. I've finally found the best hair stylest. And I love the curls. Do they look professional? That is up for debate, but with the short hair it sure is fun.
