YSL Museum_Reviving Charm blog

Visiting Morroco, particularly Marrakech, has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember. (What’s on your bucket list?). If ever find myself in Marrakech the Yves St. Laurent Museum will be one of my “must see” places to visit.

Back in Black at “& Other Stories”

Last year I was very happy when “& Other Stories“ opened at my local mall, South Coast Plaza. Coming from Europe, they don’t have many U.S. Stores and this is only one of three locations in California (the first CA location is in Beverly Hills and the other is now in Glendale). This shop has […]

Style: The Summer Must Have

Have you noticed that I haven’t done a fashion post in quite a while? Let’s talk handbags, shall we? The “it” bag this spring and summer has been the straw or wicker handbag or tote. Something typically utilitarian has elevated into something so very summery chic. Straw handbags are definitely having a moment and with […]
