M2 The Making

Hi everyone! I want to introduce M2 to you. It was to come out a little earlier this Spring/Summer but with the virus I waited around to introduce it. If you’ve seen my latest post, I have been going through a lot but one must keep the faith. These clothes are beautiful and inspired by my “Sunset on a Florida Parking Lot” painting. They are available in different sizes here. We worked hard down in Miami earlier this year and I hope you love them!

Michelle Obama’s Narciso Rodriguez Dress at Last Night’s State of The Union Address

13eveningss-slide-ZVXC-facebookJumboSo, like it or not, Barack Obama is now in his last year of office and delivered his final State of The Union address last night. While you might debate about the politics, you must admit (again) that Michelle Obama is one of the fiercest first ladies we’ve ever had. I mean, she is a huge fashion force and well, did you see her marigold Narciso Rodriguez dress last night?

It’s the perfect color for a mid-winter pick me up and it is a really versatile dress. I mean, you could really wear that to an office meeting, church or even brunch.

The dress is basically sold out everywhere but check out similar Narciso Rodriguez dresses here.

Surfing a Tsunami


Fashion is by definition a reflection of what is going on in the world. We live in a moment of total disruption as our tools change and the speed increases. Everyone is surfing a tsunami, trying to understand how to deal with waves of so much information, so many images. As always when in periods of change, clarity and quality become imperative.” – Diane von Furstenberg

I’m Having a Curious George Moment: LED Lights and Mobile App Controlled Fashion from CuteCircuit

So yesterday I was reading that on the Today’s Show, tech expert Katie Linendoll came on to talk about her LED Light dress from CuteCircuit. I hadn’t heard of such a thing and was quite impressed. While the techies programming t-shirts and dresses for use with mobile apps, Twitter, Instagram and whatever else may be on to something great I was not that into the actual fashion of it all. But, maybe that will come down the line. For now, I’m just fascinated with the idea that you can ‘program’ your clothing and turn on a virtual light show with what you’re wearing.

I do wonder though how do you wash something like that? This is a trend that clearly has a lot of developing to do but for now, bravo to the tech geeks and folks at CuteCircuit for exploring such an idea. Check out the video from CuteCircuit below for their Pink and Black Haute Couture Collection for Summer 2013. Interesting is all I have to say.
