Welcome to 2014! We can already predict it’s going to be a year of absolutely-fabulous fashion. Remember one thing this year: Be Original. Whether it’s digging out some vintage pieces from your great grandmother’s antique chest, or finding an extra special one-of-a-kind fascinator to wear with a simple dress. Do it. Be different and step outside the box.
In this issue “From the Streets to the Stables vol. 2”, we are dedicating it to street style for an upscale equestrian event. Will you be attending a Wellington, Florida Grand Prix event or Palm Beach Polo anytime soon? It’s time to dress it up, ladies. If you are actively competing, obviously it’s fine to wear your breeches and boots, but it has become more of a fashion show for spectators during evening events. You Must look your best.

Always keep make up soft and accentuate the best features of the face. A soft curl in the hair is sophisticated and sweet.
