Teachers Are Awesome

The aha! moments that gifted teachers witness are among life’s most inspirational ones. I have many ‘teachers’ in my life and am so proud to know them. Here is a Vimeo of my cousin, Jeff Ciprioni, who is a Physics, and Living Environment teacher at the The Young Women’s Leadership School in Harlem. Hearing about his Urban Teacher Residency and seeing him in action in his classroom makes me feel both appreciative and lucky.

Fashion Inspired by Nature: Selby Gardens

Nature was my fashion muse as I explored the exotic wonders at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens.

Marie Selby Botanical Gardens

The utter femininity of these fuchsia and yellow flowers combined with the delicate strength found in each petal is the perfect inspiration for a scarf or wrap.

Anthropologie

The umbra shading of the colors combined with the snake-skin print bring girlishness and edginess together!

Green Plant from Selby in Sarasota

This box plant’s reticulated leaf pattern and delicate structure brings to mind a certain clutch…

Intrecciato satin knot

Simple and elegant. The tailored shape, emerald green color and classic style pack a powerful punch.

Polka Dot Plant

Polka dots found in nature are as adorably surprising and fanciful as those found in fashion.

Black and White Polka Dot Dress

This Silk Dress by Oscar de la Renta from Saks Fifth Avenue has a sweet jewel neckline, cap sleeves and bodice pleats–ideal for a day at the office or a walk around town.

This plant is extraordinary – in shape, vibrance and individuality. The same goes for these fabulous Alexis Bittar hoops, which are an exclusive for Nordstrom.

Don’t these shell-like beauties make you feel like you’re at a resort bathing in a cerulean sea?

White Flowers

Experience the exotic look of tropical flowers, grass and sand.

Floral Print Sleeveless Blouse and A Line Skirt

You will find unending inspiration for resort-wear in Oscar’s latest collection, which is reminiscent of the 60’s.

Old Tree at Selby

This tree is over 500 years old and stands stalwartly at the heart of Selby.

The serpentine straps of this heeled sandal are evocative of the twisted, winding roots of the ancient tree. P.S. Each photo takes you to someplace special online. Feel free to click for a little added fun!
