April is over, but will forever be a magical calendar moment. The month was filled with challenging tasks and life-changing decisions to follow suit with the fresh aura from nature’s spring transformation.
The year’s mission is about moving ahead and building a life focused on growth, abundance, and joy. Daily determination and action will achieve these goals and design a lifestyle of light and love. This sunny spirit inspired my creativity to compose a The Style Server that is practical and lively. The shop is a combination of modern essentials and illuminating elegance encouraging a wardrobe to shine on into the spring season.
March starts with a celebration for the ultimate girl gang in honor of International Women’s Day. We salute the female forces who devote their lives to making the world smarter, stronger, and definitely, more stylish.
The month marches on with the time-honored traditions for American Irish heritage. The lively festivities brighten the streets with shades of clover green to let us know spring is in the air.
However, it is Mother Nature’s magic that is the inspiration behind The Style Server. We welcome spring with a black and white palette and the chance to begin again. The boutique is a selection of the new season from Lafayette 148 styled with modern chicness from Manolo Blahnik.

February is short and sweet, with a lot of substance. The Groundhog sets the stage and decides the fate of winter as we honor athletic resilience, Presidential leadership, and the best and brightest of Black History.

The Style Server shares this spirit showcasing the first signs of spring from Lafayette 148. The selections are paired with the inspiration of the current rouge-toned trimmings to commemorate the passion of the season and the brilliance in the days ahead.
January is a fresh start and an opportunity to begin again. This is the moment to evaluate all areas of your life, on what is working and what needs a revised plan.

The subtle yet, substantial evergreen glow fills the December air. The pine aroma represents a season to celebrate love and joy.

The season represents rebirth, as Mother Nature shares an array of richness to inspire optimism for the change ahead. On a personal note, this moment is also a new beginning. Spending the pandemic displaced, I joined the brand Lafayette 148. A perfect fit to open the Greene Street Flagship to be a part of a New York company on a mission.

As with all Septembers, the crisp air inspires the month’s spirited energy and desire to revitalize and begin again. Whether you are headed back to existing circumstances, moving to unfamiliar surroundings, or humbly rediscovering your purpose, it is the opportunity to start fresh.
Finding the good every day is the inspiration behind the August State of Mind and its Style Servers. This is also a mantra for a well-lived life directed by light and love.
The month of August is a moment of transition, as we continue to enjoy summer’s sparkle and prepare to get back to business. There is much to anticipate, with a new virus variant and the changing of the guard in the New York governorship. At this point, (at least New Yorkers) have learned we have the resilience to handle anything. The newfound wisdom has provided the strength to rise up and be great humans to shine through all situations.
To express these sentiments the shops offer black and white wardrobe essentials, accompanied by a yellow glow. The colors brilliance is a reminder to focus on a bright mindset as we shift into autumn with timeless glamour.
July makes its entrance with a red, white, and blue Americana glow. The customary celebration is in honor of our great nation turning a year older and wiser. All generations adopt a playful personality to enjoy summer’s splendor.
