I’m not big into following trends and like to dress in a way that my future self and children will be appreciative of.  Jackie Onassis Kennedy believed that, “Pearls are always appropriate”. I’m all for having your own sense of self and fashion but In my opinion, the trend of acid washed “diaper” jeans and jean overalls on adults needs to end. This trend was not good in the 90’s and is not a good look now ladies. Karl Lagerfeld once said, “Trendy is the last stage before tacky.” I often think that I was born in the wrong era and long to have lived in the days when elegance and grace ruled. But then I quickly remember modern fancies such as quick air travel, iPhones and internet shopping and then I am content to be here at this amazing time!
