I love this shade of orange. “Tangerine, Tangerine, Living reflection from a dream.”
– “Tangerine,” Led Zeppelin.
I like the look of the religious charms that were used throughout the collection.
They remind me of these treasures I found at the Rosebowl Swapmeet.
I adore womenswear that is inspired by menswear. I love when women wear suits, it is one of my favorite looks.

Lately I have been listening to a lot of 60’s french pop. The Genre “Yé-Yé” is a style of pop music that emerged in France and other places in Europe in the 1960’s. Young female singers became very popular with this genre. Some of the most famous were Françoise Hardy, Chantal Goya, Jane Birkin, and Brigitte Bardot. Imagine, Brigitte Bardot singing about Harley Davidson motorcycles while wearing thigh-high boots and a black leather mini skirt.

When I was a little girl, I pronounced girls as “guls” and I told my mom that we could only listen to girl singers. If the radio was playing I would ask if it was a “gul” and if it wasn’t I would tell her to change the station. I was quite sassy and girly.
Here are a few of the songs I have been listening to
Tous les garcons et les filles – Francoise Hardy
Bonnie and Clyde – Serge Gainsbourg & Brigitte Bardot
Moi Je Joue – Brigitte Bardot
From placid to erratic
My head feels full of everything
And I shiver
But this feeling cannot be shaken
I am fragile
But there is strength in my heart
Sometimes I feel lost at sea
That life is flowery and often improvised
But there is grace that lies within my being
It propels me forward without doubt
Things may fade under the sun
There is always something new to love
We are meant to wander about
And make connections
To understand that our purpose is much more than wandering
