Every woman should own a bright red dress. The color red says ‘look at me!’ and ‘yes, I can’ or maybe even ‘yes I will.’ The color red sparks in us an enthusiasm and energy that increases the heartbeat and protects us from stress and fear.

Fashion Is Fun Again
sisterhouse.net

Fashion is fun again. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: 2017 has been the year for maximalist dressing. And the trend should continue through the rest of the decade.

Fashion Historians Talk About Today’s Fashion
sisterhouse.net

Much of today’s fashion is terrible. Nothing is really new but too often a regurgitation of past decades but with a senseless twist from the millennial generation who has no sense of style and looks only for comfort.
