I Am Eternally Grateful!

Kathleen Pagan

I write this with so much gratitude in my heart.

A few years ago, when my dad passed away at the age of 62, one of the great lessons I learned was simple—life is too short. And although it sounds trivial, when you begin to look at your life through the lense, of what if this was my last day on earth, your perspective completely changes. Your old thoughts, your way of being become completely unrecognizable. Read More

Sisters in Fashion: Meet Marcy & Kari!

If you remember the oh, so fabulous Zorana {see her event fashionista post here} you’d recall that she chose Marcy Benner as our next feature. Upon talking to Marcy about all things fashion, she mentioned that she co-owned her boutique, Maluka with her sister Kari. Enter the bright idea of shooting them together and doing a feature on both of them. Well, boy did they not disappoint!! They were everything I expected them to be and more. Their personalities were just as remarkable as their fashion! And after a bit of chit chatting, okay a lot of chit chatting we got to it! Oh and did I mention, we played dress up for our shoot! Yup, phenomenal!

Read on lovelies and fall in love just like I did! Read More

Event Fashionista Series: Meet Zorana Selakovic!

Event Fashionista Series- Meet Zorana

When Zorana and I first discussed her feature and what she would share—normally amongst the obvious choices are fashionable tablescapes, home entertaining soirees, or beautifully designed rooms—after all we are event fashionistas, right?! Her choice was simple. “My gallery wall,” she replied! It made total sense. She’s an interior designer, gallery walls are in, so a feature on one was a no brainer!

But quickly upon entering her apartment and talking to her no more than two seconds, I realized that there was much more to her wall than met the eye.

Her wall was her story. Her journey. Each item representative of her life. It consisted of hand painted items from family and friends. Plane tickets of her extensive travels around the world. It was simply filled with distant memories that were easily resurrected as she detailed each memory.

Zorana is truly an inspiration! She reminded me why I started this series in the first place! To create a space where I could feature women just like you and me. Women who celebrate life—those who entertain, design, and are oh, so fashionable. But most importantly, those who are inspirational!

So, go ahead and read on! Learn a bit more about Zorana and her fabulousness! Read More

Event Fashionista Series: Meet Vanessa Deleon Bournias

Event Fashionista Series: Meet Vanessa

Thrilled doesn’t begin to describe how elated (no pun intended) I was when Melissa Ruta, also an event fashionista herself {Read all about her here} picked Vanessa Deleon to be our next feature. Our very own event fashionista!

You see, Vanessa is all fabulosity! Or how she would describe it, “Glamilistic.” A termed she coined while staring on HGTV’s hit TV Show “Design Star.” Since, then she has made countless television appearances including Restaurant Impossible, Designer’s Challenge, Generation Renovation, and most recently on NBC’s “American Dream Builders” (just to name a few).  Oh and let’s not forget a successful entrepreneur who built her business from the ground up and has professional accolades that could fill up anyone’s wall! A fabulous designed wall, that is!

So, having her on the event fashionista list is simply an honor!.  Read on as we chitchat on her must haves, design tidbits, and much more! Read More

Meet The Oh, So Fashionable Melissa Ruta!

Event Fashionista Series- Meet Mel

Upon arriving at her home we were greeted with pure warmth and excitement. Not to mention she was ready to rock and roll looking fashionable and fabulous as always. Having known Melissa for many years (we won’t say how many so we don’t date each other) she has always been the ultimate hostess! So, naturally when I was trying to identify my pick her name shot right to the top of the list!

Oh and did we mention, she just became a mom! Yes! She’s so that woman I aspire to look like if I ever have children. You know, the kind that get ready while feeding their baby and still manage to not have a hair out of place. Jelly!

We sat down with Mel to chit chat about her hostess’ secrets and boy did she have some yummy ones to share. See the juicy deets down below!  Read More
