I meet Rocco Michaluk while working on a wedding for a NY bride. I so enjoyed working with him that we co-produced a video called: Hoopskirt101(c)
The girlfriends guide to wearing a very large dress. With the help of Mrs Tinney at Belcourt Castle and a few wonderful friends, this "how to" video is dedicated to a Newport bride who will be wearing a "very large dress" next year!

I must say, I now have so much technical respect for craft of video and film making. When looking at the raw footage of HoopSkirt101, I just couldn’t figure out how to glue the footage, narration and music together. Rocco made it look so easy. He saw my vision and produced a perfectly wonderful video. Now I know why editing costs as much as it does. Its hours of hard work, skill and talent.
HoopSkirt101 is coming soon to a computer near you!


I will let you know when its up !

What would Jackie do?

From fashion to finance, a sophisticated and entertaining guide that shows readers how to attain the elegance and practical smarts that defined Jackie O.
We can't help but want to be like her: Exuding unmatched poise and style, she continues to fascinate people of all ages. But how would Jackie have handled the twenty-first century? What would she think about a society that celebrates outsized egos, instant everything and casual rules of conduct? How might she dress for the office, scan for a man, accessorize a home—and get away from it all when necessary? With intriguing research, commentary from today's experts, and fond reminiscences from those who knew and admired the First Lady of perfection, journalists Shelly Branch and Sue Callaway now offer a sparkling answer to the question “What Would Jackie Do?”

Shelly Branch is a very good friend from NYC who just "Gets It".
Im proud to have her as my friend.
This book is a hand book for any gal leaving the single life to launch her life as a Mrs.
