Nurture Sparkle

Nurture Sparkle

I love to see and feel emotional sparkle. Seeing my husband and daughter sparkling together above makes me sparkle too. So does connecting with others who are passionate about their work. Like designer Jason Wu:

Thanks to A Better Chicago, I enjoyed the Jason Wu fashion show at the Art Institute and dinner with the designer and others afterwards. Wu skyrocketed to fame when Michelle Obama wore his gown to her husband’s first inauguration. The first lady’s only design parameter was, “It has to sparkle.”

Fashion design makes Skatie sparkle too. She is already Creative Director of the Cashmere By Tania fashion house in London. Tania is the second from the left below. I will forever be her fan and friend because of the opportunity and support she gives Skatie. Tania is great fun to be with too!

Jason’s advice to Skatie was “Go for it! Start designing your dreams now.” His advice to me – nurture her fashion sparkle – of course.

Thank you Jackie, Skatie & Stuart Weitzman

Thank you Jackie, Skatie & Stuart Weitzman


Jackie Giusti Seaman, VP Brand Image Initiatives for Stuart Weitzman and Skatie Noyes, Fashionista Extraordinaire and Creative Director for Cashmere By Tania in Stuart Weitzman’s award winning NYC corporate showroom.

Jackie Giusti Seaman will be a gorgeous mom – spiritually and physically – to her son who is due in three weeks. She proved this Monday with her charm, interest and connected savvy for my daughter, Skatie, when she hosted us at the Stuart Weitzman corporate headquarters for a tour, lunch and shopping.

I love exploring great fashion with Skatie. Doing this with Jackie, who is about to become a mother and who understands the design world that is my daughter’s milieu was an extraordinary treat. Leaving with the hottest loafers ever – matching pairs for mother and daughter – was the perfect ending to a gift of a day.

Thank you Jackie & Skatie!

I hope to soon be paying this gift of a day forward to support ovarian cancer research at an event at the Stuart Weitzman store in Northbrook Court too.
