NO RULES – Always Glow Before You Go…

Glow by Mary

Welcome to GLOW. This business has been a “glimmer” in my eye, a flutter in my heart and a ruffle on my hemline for as long as I can remember. I have been dressing and primping everyone in my life since I was a little girl — even our family dog wore dresses.

The inspiration behind GLOW is simple — feeling good in your own skin…and radiating that good feeling from the inside so that you GLOW on the outside. It’s really all about being, feeling and looking like the best you.

After 12 years as a uniform-wearing, heavily starched, pleated skirted, knee sock-ed Catholic school girl (I even had a glimmering halo)…NYU happened. And my uniform changed dramatically. I dressed for me. And just for me. I found my voice and my flair and it felt amazingly awesome. Many fashion magazine jobs later, I hit my stride. I had the wardrobe of my dreams and I never ever even considered wearing commuting shoes. So what if I ruined my stilettos running for the bus??? Right??

And then few years later, I found a new job called…motherhood. Shoot. I had absolutely nothing to wear. And I am not kidding. Note to self, if you want to make friends in a mommy and me class, don’t wear Manolos. So…I worked around it. I did not convert to the red high-top Reeboks with the velcro closure, but for the first time I was stumped.

And then I wasn’t…

I didn’t wear the Manolos to mommy and me (well, not at first anyway), but I settled in on a style that made me happy and the rest is fashion history…basically, the rule is that there are no rules…

So if you want to wear stiletto heels to pick your kids up from school….wear them!!!

If you want to wear white after Labor Day…please do!!!

And if it’s really cold out but you just bought the cutest strappy top that you are dying to wear, for the love of all things stylish, just throw a cardigan over it and wear it with a smile…everyone will notice.

It’s better to look good AND feel good. And please always remember to…
