Spread The Good News!

This is a Notable Styles and More Directive: Spread The Good news on this day, that carries a negative tone. Combat all of the spooky, unlucky, horrifying, mysterious, be-witching (and a bunch of  other adjectives that I could have used) with POSITIVITY (fairy sprinkle sound). 

And my positive message of the day is to: Smile. Smile because it is contagious and you can change the whole world one person at a time with a smile.

Zendaya The Slaya!!







Zendaya - who I was introduced to via the child celebrity grooming machine Disney Networks has grown into being one of the most followed stars for all things fashion, trendy and classy. 

This youthful star isn't only beautiful and well dressed (thanks to her individual and styling collaborations with Luxury Law). She is also full of substance which is displayed in her responses and opinions that can be found in articles and posts online. Examples of such opinions relate to Zendaya taking a stand on important societal (minority and women's rights) topics, as well as verbally identifying with a group of the human race that some have labeled "mixed" with her roots coming from one white and one black parent, although Zendaya says she represents all "black" girls.


I have two little girls of my own and I see Zendaya as an excellent representation of beauty, strength, determination and hope of what accomplishment can look like.

Thierry Mugler is a French fashion designer that launched his first independent collection Café de París in 1973. His designs are known for their body conscious and haute couture aesthetic.

Below you will find five of my favorite looks from the upcoming Spring Mugler collection. In my opinion, his designs compliment a women's shape (with the structure) and offer a high quality of workmanship.
