1) A conversation with Camille Paglia. One of my favorite things she said was “Western culture is in decline. There’s absolutely no doubt about it, in my view, looking at the history of Egypt, of Babylon, of Byzantium, and so on. And so what’s happening is everyone’s so busy-busy-busy with themselves, with this narcissistic sense of who they are in terms of sexual orientation or gender, and this intense gender consciousness, woman consciousness at the same time…” Read the whole interview here.
2) A conversation with a self-made billionaire, Brunello Cucinelli. One of the many quotes from him that I love was “Those who come to me and say, “You know, I work 15 hours a day,” I say, “I am not interested.” I am interested in the quality of working hours, not the quantity. The brain of the human being. Do you think that during the first five hours of the day you are the same as you are in the last five hours? No way. You’re tired, and if you’re tired, you stop listening, and the decisions you make are risky.” Read it here.
4) I’m obsessed with magic, witches and spells or any sort of supernatural stories so it was such a delight to discover this new BBC show “Jonathan Strange and Mr.Norrell”. Imagine watching a visually stunning story without extreme violence or sex? Yes, apparently it can be done on TV.
5) 40 ways to relax in five minutes or less. Whewwww.
Happy 4th of July and have a great weekend!

Dressing in the morning can be particularly stressful if you are rushing to work so I prefer dresses and jumpsuits where you can just throw them on with little to no fuss. I love this Mink Pink denim dress because it’s versatile and can be dress up or down with flats or heels!

Since you’ll be wearing a lot of thin cotton shirts this summer to combat the heat, it’s nice to have a pretty bra underneath to make you feel extra sexy. I’d love this Missguided lace bralet with a cute back to peek out under my white shirts!

Doesn’t it feel nice to be in a relationship where you can express who you are through your clothes and your significant other not only accepts it but encourages you as well? The girls in these photos look so happy with what they’re wearing and the guys seem to love it and they don’t look judgmental or embarrassed at all. These couples look like they’re in perfect harmony with their own style.

For someone who wears exclusively in black five days a week, summer is not an exception to me. I love the way these four ladies look so chic even though they’re all wearing head to toe black in their own ways. Here are a couple of things in black that will keep your summer stylish!
