Anniversary of Woodstock '69

Celebrating the anniversary of Woodstock 1969

I'd be lying if I said I didn't own this poster


Oh what I'd give to have been there

It is with envious honor I post remembrance of a free time

Killin' it

 My Woodstock albums get me through the longest of car rides, and the longest of morning routines

Obsessed with this print

Road Trippin'

 A Roadtrip is an adventure, it's an experience, a journey and can be a life-changing getaway

Be honest most of us have been dreaming of the ultimate roadtrip for years...

The music you have along the way can make all the differences

I took a trek in my car from Florida to MD and the music saved me during the monotonous flat road hours

Need to rent a car? Pop over to

For me, I cannot go a day without music

I cannot leave my apartment without my ipod's plethora of genre jams

As part of the millennial tribe... #vanlife is a way of life, on a continuous adventure

There are phases of your trip, sunrises, sunsets, after-hours into the night 
Take that into account for your playlist
I cannot tell a lie, I deeply wish I was around during the 70's and lived the life of the "Dazed and Confused" "...alright, alright, alright"
That doesn't ever stop me from blaring and air-guitaring to these killers

Obviously I don't know what era I'm from because my go-to list consists of hits my parents and grandparents remember twisting to...

As a peer-to-peer car rental company, Turo truly holds dear those kinds of personal experiences as they strive to be a major part of the sharing economy.

You can both list your car and rent someone else's car through the Turo site!

It never, EVER hurts to kick it old-school

'Cause knowing every word of every song gives you that extra unneeded confidence to "take the stage" and own it

While I am on this truth kick I will tell you I listen to most of this playlist daily, my friends often ask if I have my 90's playlist on....NOPE my regular playlists on shuffle consisting of the 90's through and through

....'Cause the original NOW CD holds a special place in my heart

Now, I am not totally disconnected from this era... I do have a favorite songs that I listen to everyday, that get me through every day

The magic about songs is that they can take part in memorable moments, spark conversation, and thoughts that make your road trip all the more....

The Met takes on Manus x Machina

An adventure to The Met is never a disappointment 

From the early 20th century to the present time couture has ranged between hand-made and machine technology

Manus Machina (Hand and Machine) exhibits couture pieces that are truly art

The first piece in the exhibit is this remarkable piece by the one and only Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel

That's a HAND-PAINTED train with hand embroidered perarls, and gemstones

Just take a moment...

The ceiling was even an elaborate ornate inspiration

A fabulous highlight were floral applications
creating a sense of whimsical wonderment

This Lagerfeld piece is a A/W 2004 Wedding ensemble, don't mind if we do...

Metallics were a huge highlight

Sea life and nature inspired pieces were innovative and creatively inspiring

This was a favorite of mine, can you imagine!?

The perfect formal engagment dinner party dress or rehearsal dinner dress

An all-time favorite- Dior

Lagerfeld, van Herpen, and Saint Laurent feather pieces are out of this world

 Pleats took a true art form 

Raf Simons for Dior S/S 2015

The iconic Chanel is always identifiable.
