Why not Fashion Travel?
Travel for me is not just getting away from the norm, relaxation or entertainment. It is more than that. It is a source of constant inspiration and knowledge that I can take with me and use it to enrich my personal or professional life back home. I love coming back from a trip with loads of ideas inspired by the places I visit in and start planning my next move while I’m still in jet lag mode (since I’m up at 2:00AM I might as well do something productive, right?)

Without a doubt, Opening Day at Del Mar Horse Races is by far one the busiest and most attended events in San Diego of the year, in fact some 40,000 get tickets annually. We attend, of course, to also observe one of the most fashionable sports in town as ladies showcase their finest and most proper hat attires and delicately dress to impress. From Kentucky Derbys to Dress Hats to Soiree Headpieces and Birdcage Poppies, it is quite a head-turning show. How can anyone miss one of the most renown fashion landmarks of the year! … Continue Reading
