Before There Was Miranda Priestly, There Was Maggie Prescott

Funny Face, 1957


Devil Wears Prada, 2006

Short and Sassy from Two For the Road

My new summer haircut was inspired by Audrey Hepburn's Vidal Sassoon hairstyle from Two For The Road, 1967. Now if I could only find that Paco Rabanne dress to go with it.

Better With Age

I love being in my 30's! I honestly believe that's it's because women get better with age. It's a feeling of growing into myself. The 'who am I' questions are being answered. My style, what haircut suits me, my career path, what I am looking for in a man, where I want to travel, finally understanding what my parents were talking about when I was a teenager. I can see it mostly in my face.

For Example:

Me in my 20's, I'm the one in the blue jacket:

Me in my 30's:

Here is a famous, and my favorite, example of getting better with age.
1996 Angelina Jolie

2006 Angelina Jolie...she upgraded from Billy Bob to Brad Pitt.

So I welcome getting older instead of dreading it. Like a fine wine, I can only get better. How do you feel, I want to know!

MTV Days

A little bit of the MTV Days concert in Piazza Castello last weekend.

Sound check and warm-up with Club Drogo.

Teens waiting for the perfect spot before the show. They wrote the band names in magic marker on their arms.

Some summer teen fashion from the concert, mohawks and colored boots.
