It's no secret that I love art and fashion, so I frequently impulsively buy biographies of artists, designers, and stylish tastemakers from Amazon. Over the winter break I found myself devouring books by and about Diana Vreeland. Now there's a woman who had no qualms about showing the world who she was. She dared to wear rouge to her ears, defy traditions, and embellish a story to make it oh-so-fabulous.
Indicative of her sometimes outlandish (but always charming) nature, her column for Harper's Bazzar named Why Don't You... challenged readers to add a little extra pizzazz into their lives. I may not want to wash my blonde hair in stale champagne, but I am trying up the grace and charm in my life and celebrate every moment. There are so many ways to instantly lift a foul mood, indulge during a dull moment, and simply live life to its fullest. In keeping with Diana Vreeland, I'm going to start challenging myself and others to add a little bit more pizzazz into the everyday.
Today I begin with a favorite pick-me up.
