Feeling Sunny: Have a Nice Day in these Spring Styles

A smiley face just makes you happy, and the colour yellow regardless of an emoticon self-perpetuates the idea of sunnier times ahead—and the added words ‘Have a Nice Day’, just makes life seem perfect. So for that perfect casual spring day, a t-shirt with a smiley face emblazoned across your chest is a positive way to start. If you’re feeling sunny, then these spring styles will put a smile on your face.

A Masterpiece Collaboration by Louis Vuitton and Jeff Koons

An invitation to dine with Mona Lisa at the Louvre is a once-in-a-lifetime experience not to be declined. Last night in Paris, Louis Vuitton invited guests to an intimate dinner in celebration of its latest collaboration with American artist Jeff Koons, titled ‘Masters’. Noting the first time the Louvre has hosted guests within the Denon wing room, Salle des Etats, aka the Mona Lisa room, to dine amidst the Leonardo da Vinci masterpiece.

My MTV Re:Define Thank you

As I scroll through multiple photos of smiling and laughing faces, it’s evident that the common theme shared by everyone at MTV Re:Define on Friday, March 24 was simple—fun! And I’ll admit I’m completely biased as the event chair, so you don’t need to believe my opinion on how much fun everyone had that night, just ask someone else. Hands-down, this is my favourite gala on the social calendar of Dallas, and this particular night rocked—as it should do when it’s a collaboration with MTV!

Palmer//Harding aka The Shirt Boys

In the East end of London, near Old Street, resides the studio of fashion designers Matthew Harding and Levi Palmer of Palmer//Harding, aka The Shirt Boys. A merging of creative minds from Dallas and London, this innovative duo—alumni from Central Saint Martins, have finely-tuned their skills in the form of wearable, everyday styles in shirts.

Levi returned home to Texas this past December to visit his family for the holidays, along with Matthew, his British business and life partner. With a pit stop in Dallas to visit the newly opened Forty Five Ten where their line is carried, I joined them for lunch at the store’s restaurant Mirador for a chat.

I’m in a red chic kind of mood, with a hint of glam and sporty

I’m in a red kind of mood, maybe that’s because, St. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, but also, all this grey weather is simply boring. Time to get lively, kick-off the cold weather blues and get red-hot chic. I’m palpitating for every style below.

Red and Pink Glam

A little Glam: from left to right, Victoria Beckham ‘Supra Round’ sunglasses $458, Bella Freud Star Man wool-blend sweater $302, Loulou De La Falaise 24k gold plated drop earrings $300, Gucci silk-satin bomber jacket $2,900, Luisa Beccaria velvet pleated skirt $1,265, Ellery Duckie flared-sleeve mini dress $583, Tina Craig for Gianfranco Lotti Otto striped leather bag $2,185, and Givenchy Retra sandals in red leather $695.

Much to be Excited About with MTV RE:DEFINE + Dallas Contemporary

The beginning of a New Year always feels so invigorating, new goals, new challenges and new adventures. For me, I’m super excited about two projects that I care about, both involving art and philanthropy—the Dallas Contemporary and MTV RE:DEFINE.

My friend Joyce Goss executive director of the Goss-Michael Foundation and her brother-in-law co-founder Kenny Goss (co-founded with the late George Michael), last year asked if I would chair my favourite gala MTV RE:DEFINE! More to come on this topic, but needless to say, I emphatically agreed and since then I’ve been working with Joyce and the MTV RE:DEFINE team towards developing a fantastic event on Friday, March 24, at the Dallas Contemporary, so save the date.
