Happy Halloween and Day of the Dead Celebrations

It is no accident that the major color of Fall is Orange.  There is nothing prettier than New England’s Fall Foliage which is often dominated by the color Orange.  I love wearing Orange, especially in the Fall because it makes me feel happy and helps with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) which occurs due to shorter hours of daylight occurring until December 21th the Winter Solstice.  How do you feel about the color orange?


It’s monsoon time in Tucson. AZ and we welcome the season of rain and beautiful thunder and lightning over the mountains and desert.  With our first storm on Saturday, the green in the desert has come to life.  WHAT COLOR BRINGS YOU TO LIFE?  Because I am a high energy person normally, I often use various shades of BLUE to bring an inner calmness to me.  Blue nurtures me because I am a WOOD in the theories of Chinese medicine.  What is your Causative Factor? If you want to learn more about your Causative Factor in Chinese medicine, start making individual consultations with me and learn how to dress to heal your spirit on a moment’s notice when you are out of balance. Please feel free to write on this blog.  I would love to hear about your go to color for healing.  Love, Diane

Happy St. Patrick’s Day and Happy Spring

Spring is here and the trees in the northeast will soon be sprouting their leaves (if it ever stops snowing there).  The weather here in Tucson is delightful now. Green will be the background for the blooming tulips and daffodils soon to be popping their heads.  It is a time of rebirth when the earth comes alive again after a long rest.  How do you dress to celebrate the season?  I simply love wearing flower prints and bright clear colors.    Come to one of my workshops and learn how to dress to express your truth.  April showers will be bringing May flowers as the saying goes.  Tell me how you feel about spring and wearing prints.  Prints help to scatter your energy outwardly.What’s in your closet?  Is it time for an update?  How about a shopping spree in your own closet?  I can help with that.  Just let me know.

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner!

Will you wear Red on Valentine’s Day?  Why or why not?  Do you have a story about Valentine’s Day that you would like to share here?  I was very hurt on Valentine’s Day when I was very young.  It soured me for many years around the holiday until a special friend gave me a pair of heart earrings after she heard my story.  While we no longer are friends, I will always remember her for that gesture of the heart.  I do love the color red and will more than likely wear it on Valentine’s Day.

Merry Christmas!

I would love to know if you dress up for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  If so, what would you wear?  And, how would you spend the day or evening.  I, for one, try to wear some sort of holiday clothing whenever I go out between Thanksgiving and Christmas.  I save the dressiest outfits for Cocktail parties and Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  Of course, when eating large meals, I try to wear my more comfortable holiday garb….How about you?

Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays 2017

Now is the time for you to really bring out the BLING and celebrate the season.   No excuses..Time to “don we now our gay apparel!”. And Fall/Winter temperatures have finally arrived in Tucson, AZ just in time.  What is your favorite holiday outfit?  Please post it here!  I will be wearing mine at the Tucson Business Network event at the Desert Diamond Casino on December 14th.  I hope to see you there.

Holiday Dressing!

I simply love dressing up for the holidays.  What is your favorite holiday outfit to wear?  My favorite is a black and gray and white 3 piece set  with bling consisting of a free flowing jacket, sleeveless top and  bling leggings!  You may see me wearing it to various parties and mixers here in Tucson this year.

When in Rome…..?

Do you believe in the following as it relates to fashion and dressing? “When in Rome wear what the Roman’s wear?” In other words, do you use your attire to “fit in” or are you authentic? Of course, these means dressing respectably for the occasion. Please let me know how you feel about this!
