This week’s Fashion Flashback is the glamorous Twiggy. Twiggy rocked the androgynous look in the 60’s with her signature long eyelashes and short hair! She modeled in France, Japan, and the US, and landed the cover of Vogue after being named British Woman Of The Year. After her modeling days, she enjoyed a successful career in film, television, and on stage. Check out some of my fave looks of Twiggy’s in my gallery!
On Saturday I spent the day with my friend Stacey Bendet of Alice & Olivia to create a kindness wall. Stacey felt inclined to spread kindness after a series of tragedies like the Boston bombing. She was inspired to do these kindness walls which are not only aesthetically beautiful but send a beautiful message. She is one of my mommy muses. She inspires me as a mom every day balancing it all.
The Kindness Project was started to inspire kindness and creativity for all ages. The concept is to create beautiful artistic walls in public places that are covered in positive messages of love and kindness that people can take, share or add to with their own positive messages. All of the kindness cards have a drawing or painting on one side and the message on the other side, which makes the wall colorful and vibrant with beauty and love! It’s a simple and sweet way to help make the world a better place.
The Kindness Project has often taken the form of a collaborative wall, but sometimes Stacey has made these beautiful tree installations where people hang cards as leaves and sometimes it is expressed in the form of an instagram message that brightens people’s day. The hashtag #thekindnessproject lets us aggregate the positive messages! You can also add/take from the kindness wall in either Alice & Olivia or Dash Boutique in Southampton or make your own. Kind words can heal!
I had been hearing a lot about Marianne Williamson for over a year now and that she was doing such wonderful things. I brought Kim with me to hear her speak recently and she was amazing. Some things I love about Marianne: she is committed to women’s rights, she believes in providing the highest form of education for every American, she is passionate about eradicating child poverty, and she wants to strategize peace as much as we have strategized our war efforts. She definitely has my vote!
