It's All About Me

There is a calm cohesiveness in today's wardrobe, an unstructured connection of favourite pieces -- and yet this eclectic selection reflects the individual psyche. Age is no longer a factor. People have the confidence to be comfortable in their own skin, their own clothes and their own bodies, to have fun, to enjoy.

The Scent of a Truffle

Find a truffle and it's like finding money buried in the ground. Depending on quality, white truffles the size of a walnut to a grapefruit sell for about $200 per ounce. The dealer has disappeared. Deals are consummated outside, around the corner, out of view. I did not see either truffle or euro change hands.
