Super Sized: Forever 21 sizes up to 22 I discovered Forever 21 shortly after I turned 21. It sounded as if shopping in this store might have an expiration date. The atmosphere and the clothing felt of-the-moment and that moment was fleeting. I got stuck on the name and began tossing around the sentiment that perhaps one day, I just may want to be “forever 21.” Dancing into the wee hours of the night on bar tops at IUP, spending hours developing film in the darkroom, discovering London and living a relatively carefree existence.

Mima Trunk Show this Saturday at Ziabird I first discovered “Mima” at Ziabird at Lumina Station when I was selecting jewelry for actress Elizabeth Mitchell’s (Lost, Revolution) cover shoot last year for Brink Magazine.

I layered orange carnelian gemstones and leather with a nod to the bohemian countered with an edgy, gold dagger necklace. Ziabird owner Lynn Manock, who is hosting a special Mima…

A BEAUTIFUL SOUL   With the passing of Maya Angelou this week, I loved seeing so many sharing her beautiful words in her honor. A true American treasure, Renaissance woman, poet and cultural pioneer, Angelou died at 86 in her home in Winston-Salem, NC.
