My mother wore Pucci. As a stewardess for PanAm in the late 60s, she embodied the look of the time and those that followed with effortless chic. She was a devotee to quality and her style was uncorrupted by the fleeting fancy of trends. My love of all things beautiful started by watching her (pictured at right).
I graduated from Georgetown with a liberal arts degree and hoping to join the FBI, worked as an investigator in security clearances (after a brief year in broadcasting at CBS). My passion for fashion got me in trouble at both jobs where, after numerous dress code violations, I tried to explain to my bosses that nude fishnets were a perfectly acceptable substitute for ‘nylons.’ They didn’t agree.
Working in the world of the drab grey suit and ‘sensible shoes,’ I sought refuge by making over friends’ wardrobes and homes, finding ample inspiration in the world around me: the city of New York and all it offers in the way of style. The results of these makeovers were compelling: my friends’ external changes resonated on the inside, making them feel confident and beautiful. I felt grateful to be a part of such positive transformations.
