How to Holiday and Save The Planet

Wearing: Stine Goya dress Gianvanito Rossi shoes     As a New Yorker, one of the best things about the holidays is the all parties.

In the same thought process, I reminisced about the good ol’ days and the Summer of Love. 1969. I was not around for those glory days, but wish I was. I had a strong desire to be a part of that generation. It was all about bright, swirling colors. Psychedelic, tie-dye shirts and long hair and beards were commonplace. Woman wore unbelievably short skirts and men wore tunics and capes. Everyone was so bottled up in the 50’s so much that the late 1960s exploded like an old pressure cooker.
