#NOLACoffeeTalk

It takes a lot of something to have a meet up/ event in a city where nobody knows you.  What was suppose to just be a vacation some how ended up being that and what some of my family members considered “work”.  The beauty of Coffee Talk is the opposite.  It’s a  need, a love that I have that cost me nothing.  Good intentions x an invite and the rest is out of my hands. I woke  up already excited and over the moon happy.  Here I am well rested, stuffed and  in these tiny historic streets.  What can possibly go wrong?!     One by one these awesome humans walked in…for #NolaCoffeeTalk First Coffee Talk where there was no coffee. We talked, laughed and learned about each other.  Not once did any of the attendees pull out their phone.  Not for a selfie, capture the talk… nothing…..like wow. I usually try to get at least a capture for social media, but It was an uneasy feeling to even  attempt when no one else was. …

#BostonCoffeeTalk March Ft. Elissa Garza

#BostonCoffeeTalk Date: March 26,2016 Location: Caffe Nero Jamaica Plain Once again   great energy, inviting  and stylish influencers filled the room last weekend at Caffe Nero. March featured guest was Boston  Girl Boss Elissa Garza of Style Wire.  Since meeting her 2 years ago at a Marie Claire feature shoot, she got and  kept my attention with her drive,  cool-chic style and consistency.                                   Caffe Nero JP may just be our permanent location.  With a window seat so wide and inviting,  you feel  connected to the community and by passers all while building inside.                                                                 Styles introduced themselves one by one  before I could even extend a hand. Every garment and detail so intentional and personal.   Tailored fits to thigh high boots,stacked accessories, fringes and pops of brights…my eyes …

” Mom appropriate?”

  “As a Mother how do you decide what is fashionable yet appropriate?” A creative asked me at #BostonCoffeeTalk this past weekend.  My eyes lit up….like what a great question! I hear so much on “looking like a Mom” and what’s “Mom appropriate” that I was more than happy to share my opinion on this topic. My answer “I don’t wear anything that I can’t comfortably wear around my children or  want my daughter to find if she googles me”   Growing up my Mother didn’t do midriffs(besides a few 80’s pics)or skirts and shorts that were over the knees….all while being fashionable.  I loved all of her outfits, but what stood out above all was how she carried herself.  She was always so classy and confident. This taught me that confidence and feeling sexy was a feeling , a way of being and not a particular fit.  She could have worn a plastic bag and still have been chic because of her attitude and  bone straight  posture. I keep in mind via my dressing, …
