On clear December nights, the sky is a dazzling display of sparkling constellations.  Such celestial beauty is a reminder of how special this time of year is.  Whether you celebrate with a quiet gathering or a lavish party, show your festive spirit with glamorous evening wear that shimmers in the holiday lights.  Silver chains glisten like Christmas tinsel on a red velvet top.  A glimmering diamond necklace makes a fine ornament for a little black dress.  And, like a fresh snowfall, a lustrous strand of pearls falls gracefully over ivory silk to symbolize your optimism for the new year.

ALTUZARRA

Women tend to hold power with an open hand rather than a tight fist.  They welcome diverse viewpoints and value the creative solutions achieved from collaboration.  They’re skilled at making smart, insightful decisions.  They don’t rely on sports analogies to describe their strategy because it isn’t always about winning.  Sometimes, it just comes down to having the courage to do what’s best for everyone.





A rich red hue makes a stand-out statement in this impeccably tailored two-button blazer styled with strong shoulders and a sharply nipped-in waist.

Best friends often have a steadfast bond that makes them feel like they can accomplish anything. They think alike.  Conversation flows effortlessly between them. They finish each other’s sentences and share secrets.  As business partners, they inspire each other with blue-sky ideas like:  “What if we design a victorian blouse with delicate ruffles on the collar—in black leather?”

The Soft Side of Yoga

A lot is said about the hard side of yoga:  tight abs, strong arms, powerful this, and firm that.  Not as much is said about the soft side of yoga:  quiet meditation, gentle stretches, mindful this, and transformative that.

Chloé Charisma

Chloé charisma is magnetic.  The brand exudes a confident allure that is desired by women who value their independence.  While Chloé leans toward sophisticated silhouettes, See By Chloé has a more jaunty style to match her social finesse and lofty aspirations.  The family resemblance is evident in the way See By Chloé emulates her big sister’s irrepressible charm.

Vintage-inspired cutoff shorts cut from nonstretch denim feature a super-high waist that you can also wear low and slouchy.

Mind-Body Poetry

Outdoor yoga flows more freely in the summer.  After a vigorous trail run, your vinyasa feels more powerful--as if your inner warrior likes standing on rubber soles rather than a rubber mat.  There’s a natural rhythm to your breath that guides you from one pose to the next—perhaps it’s all the fresh air that gives rise to your confidence.  Beneath a brilliant blue sky, the cadence of salutations fluctuates between surges of energy from the warm sun and moments of calm from cool, westerly breezes.
