a nod to the past.

Had the opportunity to get my hands on some vintage Vogue magazines from the 50's and 60's.  What I found so beautifully interesting was how similar these women 'felt' like in the images then,  to the woman in current issues today.  At the core of who we are, every woman wants to feel BEAUTIFUL.  And whatever that means to her, there's no denying fashion is a vehicle toward achieving the simple act in acknowledging just HOW beautiful she is.  Maybe it's a new dress.  The perfect color tee that compliments her freckled face.  Shoes that give her a little extra height.  A bra that ACTUALLY fits!  Whatever it might be, all women deserve to feel beautiful, confident, proud.  So ladies, embrace your beauty.  You certainly have something beautiful to offer by simply being YOU.   xo~renée
