Remembering Michael

I couldn't stop watching Michael Jackson's funeral.

I couldn't stop watching Michael Jackson's funeral.

Not because I wanted to look at the fashions. The new black is the old bl ack, but  because I still can't believe my Michael is really gone. It was a moving tribute with lots of kind words and amazing remembrances.

That said, I was incredibly touched by the Jackson 5 -  Marlon, Jackie, Jermaine, Tito, and Randy - sat in the front for of  Los Angeles' Staple Center in black suits, white shirts, gold ties and just one glittering, right handed glove. That was true showing of  solidarity to the memory of their brother, the King of Pop, Michael Jackson.  Rest In Peace, Michael.

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
