Yet Another Reason to Love Red Lipstick

If you follow my blog, you know I inherited Mme Mère’s love of lipstick, particularly red lipstick. 

It makes me feel powerful and in charge.  Mme Mère believed that life does not trifle with a woman wearing red lipstick, and I believe she was right, so…..I’m not taking any chances.

Miss Gloria’s Golden Girl

Once upon a time, there was a little ballerina,

Who was the rising star of Miss Gloria’s ballet class.  The fact that I was the best was never seriously in dispute.  Miss Gloria knew it; I knew it; the other students knew it; their mothers knew it, and if they failed to notice, Mme Mère was there to remind them.

Opening Night at the Met Opera - 2015

It’s been many years since my last Opening Night, but I do remember how exciting they were – the Opera house at her most elegant, crystal chandeliers sparkling like diamonds, the fragrance of red roses and perfume even more intoxicating than the champagne that flowed freely. 

You couldn’t move without rubbing shoulders with the glitterati -- Jackie “O,” a true patroness of the arts, and her sister, Princess Lee Radziwill, movie stars, Broadway actors, TV personalities, politicians and anyone with even the slightest connection to New York’s beau monde were there.  It was all very heady stuff. 

Then as now, Opening Night is less about opera and more about those who want to be seen and what they choose to be seen in.  Think of it as opera’s annual Red Carpet event.

Interview with a Renaissance Lady – Linda LaRoche (Part 1)

My dear Readers, you are in for a special treat, today.  I’d like to introduce you to a brilliant writer and accomplished woman.  I have had the pleasure of getting to know Linda LaRoche through her wonderful Blog Do Write.”  To read it is not only to be inspired, but to get a mini-lesson on how to put together a beautifully crafted sentence, which, in an age of the trite (Twitter anyone?) sound bite is rare indeed.    


But, as you’ll soon learn, Linda LaRoche is much more than just her words on a page.  Although Linda is a very private person, a quality which I admire, she has graciously agreed to sit down with me for a little cyberchat.
