Why a dragonfly? Because you can learn a thing or two from a dragonfly; they're calculating and efficient at what they do; When a dragonfly sets its sights on a target, it will almost always end up with a meal. They can see in all directions-nearly all of the dragonflies head is eye, they never stop eating, voracity isn't always a bad thing, and there are over 5000 species of dragonflies.

For something that looks so menacing, (hence the name dragon), this insect use to get a bad rep, but the tide has changed for our little predator friend. Generally, dragonflies are symbols of courage, strength, and happiness, and they often appear in art and literature. Who knew? 

What I learned is that strength can come from the smallest of beings and sometimes the most amazing things come when you least expect it and from where you'd least expect it. Might and will can make even a dragonfly powerful and why can't I? I will never look at a dragonfly the same again. Enjoy and Be Inspired!

Color popped in vibrant hues and jewel tones, accessory overload, texture and more texture, everything in excess, extreme layering, mis-match prints, mad-hatters,bold jewelry, lush knits and fur love of fashion editorials knows no boundaries, it goes beyond the clothes, it's the makeup, the vision, the details; a half tucked shirt, a leather belted parka, side swept hair cover a model's eyes, a window glare or blur, a hat cocked "ace duce" a mis-match of prints and patterns, light and dark, movement and stillness, body language, a flow and a rhythm that just comes together to complete a fashion story, an enviable and unattainable masterpiece.
