We had the great opportunity to attend the opening of Alexis Zambrano’s show, Interior Artscapes, and as expected it was a tremendous success with a great torrent of glitterati from both near and far pouring into the Burden James mansion for the event — a most perfectly grand salon-style affair for the refined artist and his equally refined canvases (most of which were sold practically before the doors opened!).

    I’m sorry, Mr. Andrew, but sometimes you throw together outfits that look like some of the “trying-to-hard” transplanted retirees here in Florida. You do have flair and usually great style, but the mismatched and badly coordinated outfit in today’s blog looks like it was put together by someone who doesn’t have a clue or had too many Martinis! Style? Taste? Well coordinated? Were you standing in front of a mirror when you put all this “mess” on?! I usually like and sometimes just “appreciate” your flair, but today was unforgivable and inexcusable!

    Dear Charles Allen,

    You have always been so kind , so I have to say upon reading your comment I was quite shocked by its unpleasant and critical nature.

    Now I am certainly not looking to please everyone with my clothing choices – if I did I would certainly be doing something wrong.

    However I am putting myself out there for all to see attempting to inspire,uplift and share my journey.

    I find it rather remarkable when people who are not putting themselves out there for all to see can hide behind their computers and spew their negative rants and opinions.

    Theodore Roosevelt’s most eloquent quote sums it up quite nicely:

    “It is not the critic who counts, nor the man who points how the strong man stumbled or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly…who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at best, knows the triumph of high achievement; and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”

    Theodore Roosevelt, 1910

    You look smashing! And so does dear Alex.

    I am sorry to sound like a dreadful snob, but I heard somewhere that
    Daytona Beach is called the “redneck riviera” ! Ha!

    Thank You Dean my Dear Boy!!!

    Alexis is just so delicious and has the most exquisite taste!

    I had not heard that about Daytona Beach – I am sure there are some lovely places there!
