.:fashion is not about utility-an accessory is merely a piece of iconography used to express individual identity:. ...doug in the devil wears prada... My two favorite things are clothes and music. There are few things that I love doing more than getting all dressed up, dressing up someone else, or observing the way different people choose to express themselves in their dress and the way the pull together ensembles. I especially appreciate the looks when they seem to be effortlessly assembled. This blog is the brain child resulting from the love I have for fashion and my desire to learn more about this fascinating business that affects each and every one of our lives! Thank you for joining me for what I hope to be a fun ride!
