Paperwhite is a women’s apparel line designed for the modern woman who integrates charm and personality into her everyday style.  Founded in 2008, the brand originally launched as a women’s shirt line to fill a void in the market.  In 2011, the brand presented its Spring collection as a full line, bridging the gap between […]

You know what I love about the internet?  It truly does democratize the playing field (to an extent, anyway).  Brands and experiences once enjoyed by a select few can now be enjoyed the world over because of the internet.  Case in point – the Jonathan Adler Warehouse Sale – what was once exclusive to New […]

HerbivoreBotanicalsPurify_750_500

I picked up Herbivore Botanicals‘ Purify a few weeks ago when I was at Willys Detroit.  As a beauty product junkie, I don’t need much of a push to try a new product, especially one for oily/blemish prone skin.  Purify is a balancing serum for oily/blemish prone skin.  While it might sound ridiculous to add […]

When you think about cars, chances are the last thing you think about is fashion.  Whether you realize it or not, the connection between cars and fashion has been there for a very long time.  Since the early 1900s, car companies have used attractive, well dressed models at auto shows as part of the overall […]

In 2006 famed fashion photographer and filmmaker Bruce Weber was in our fair city shooting Kate Moss for W Magazine.  It seems that Weber was so taken by the magic and resilience of Detroit and its residents that he shot photos of some of the people he met and places he visited while here on […]

I’m always on the lookout for good beauty products.  Recently I had a chance to test drive a new primer, courtesy of Skindinavia – the Makeup Primer Oil Control.  I used it the day I shot the pictures for DSR Apparel; I knew it would be sunny and I’d be outside for hours which would […]

The wait is over – DSR Apparel has officially launched.  For the past six months or so I’ve been hard at work launching DSR Apparel – a t-shirt line for the empowered woman.  After several setbacks and many ups and downs, I’m proud to see DSR Apparel come to reality. I had wanted to launch […]
