I felt pretty clueless last summer when I first ventured out into deep cyberspace where I didn’t know a soul. But it turns out you can meet some really cool cyber-people.
Awhile back I “met” Katie Schwartz, who is a kick and a half all by herself. Now she’s joined with two other women who sound equally exciting—- in a new venture called 3 Dames with a Clue. When Katie asked to interview me, I figured– count me in for anything that implies I have a clue— about anything.
Seriously— I celebrate creative women who create ways to celebrate creative women. And their project sounds delicious.

That’s all different now-when being a woman means having the widest array of choices–in fashion and in life.
Have you, are you, or will you reinvent yourself and, of course, what does reinventing yourself mean to you?
I think reinvention is like adaptation. It’s built into our DNA. Without reinventing ourselves, our species would die off. I think it’s the same for us as individuals. Every change is a chance for reinvention-in big and small ways, professional and personal; visible and invisible.
My biggest reinvention was probably when I became a mother-since it turned upside down everything I thought I was about…..
