A wise friend once said to me that the answer to HOW…is YES Say yes to your passion, say yes to new adventures in NYC, say yes to love and say yes to thrift store scores! I played an epic set of air guitar when I found this ensemble in the Californian Mountains recently. Cool long sleeve tee $2 and black pleated maxi skirt $4. Classic monochromatic pieces that look effortlessly chic. When I’m thrifting these are the pieces I always sniff around for and then, oh yes… you accessorize with attitude. #FashionHound Thanks to…

Feathers for days, bling and beautiful trinkets found on my travels, enough candles to open my own shop and my beloved kuan yin statue, a precious gift from my boyfriend Lee.

Then there’s French editor chic – especially Vogue magazines Emmanuelle Alt…I mean, I can’t cope. Slick slimline jeans, power shoulders for days, hair that hangs just so but what’s interesting is that a lot of her looks and french women at large for that matter contain the basics – the fashion fundamentals.
