Hi! I wanted to give you, my readers, a little background information so that you can get to know me. I am a native New York City girl, but my adopted home for the past few years has been Houston, Texas. I never thought I would be a southern girl because I am such a New Yorker at heart, but the charm and vibrancy of Houston has claimed me. I have been fascinated with the world of fashion my whole life. In an alternative life I would have gone to FIT or Parsons and pursued my passion sooner, but alas I went to law school instead. 🙂 I was an Assistant District Attorney in NYC specializing in Domestic Violence, Sex Offenses and Child Abuse before moving to Houston.
My love of fashion comes through to anyone who knows me. It began when I was young (my mother was a fashionista as well), marinated on the streets of New York, and has continued in my adult life via my wardrobe, voraciously following fashion trends, and assisting friends with their styling choices (everything from gala events, weddings, brunches or date nights on through to “heels or flats”). I have been contemplating starting a styling business and fashion blog for several years and I am finally pursuing my dream. As you no doubt can tell, I am very excited about this new adventure.
Every blog has a voice and a point of view – mine will be centered on “sparks”. When I see or read something innovative or interesting such as a painting, tech gadget, song, great book, symphony, beautiful bag, or a fabulous pair of shoes, I always ask myself the same thing – “What sparked that idea?”. I believe that everything, including the perfect outfit, starts with a spark, and I hope to share my “sparks” with you via this blog.
I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoy writing!
