Dr. Traci Lynn, the founder of Traci Lynn Fashion Jewelry, has turned her formerly modest company into a multi-million dollar enterprise. Lynn’s rise to fame is a living testimony in how much one can achieve with tenacity, confidence, and a lot of faith.
Lynn was exposed to the inner workings of being an entrepreneur at an early age. A native of Philadelphia, at four years of age, she was accompanying her grandmother who was selling clothes out of the back of a car. While in high school, Lynne earned a beauty school certificate, opened a hair salon and even obtained a nursing license. Lynn says she thought the license was the first step to being a doctor because her mother groomed her to be a physician.

Oh man, oh man, this would have been perfect during Renters Week. Ocean Drive’s Versace Mansion, the former home of fashion designer Gianni Versace which was the location of his murder and has been maintained very much like it was in his day, is for rent. The Real Deal, which originally reported the story, did not know how much the rent might be. The owners, the Nakash family of Jordache Jeans fame, have been operating it as a boutique hotel since purchasing it for $41.5 million less than two years ago…

At both the Moschino party and her shopping excursion [in Paris], Rihanna toted a Spring 2015 Christian Dior Diorama Bag. Her Silver Cannage Pattern Flap Bag can be worn as a shoulder bag or cross body, as it features a long adjustable chain strap. Her bag retails at upwards of $3,400.00.
French couture house Christian Dior is illustrating how its Diorama handbag fits into an modern woman’s wardrobe through digital content.
From a one-minute film featuring fashionistas on the move to DiorMag content delving into the handbag’s craftsmanship, Dior is looking to inspire women to update their It bag to the most recent season’s release. Since Dior does not sell its handbags through its own digital channels, this varied approach will help get consumers acquainted with the style, inspiring them to go in search of the bag in stores.

Stop the presses: Paris Hilton doesn’t really go out anymore. These days, you’re more likely to find her behind a desk or in a boardroom than on a dance floor. Sure, you’ll see a picture of her, from time to time, with her trademark near-platinum locks and famous pout and pose (oh, that pose), a micro-mini teacup Pomeranian in her arms. And yes, she’s often photographed at a club or a party; she’s not exactly hibernating. But chances are good she’s getting paid to be there. And heftily. Remember when Linda Evangelista said she wouldn’t get out of bed for less than $10,000 a day? Paris gets a lot more than that.
She may be the original celebutante—a party girl from a fancy family who turned herself into a household name using risqué outfits, reality TV and the requisite sex tape, in the process spawning a whole genre of wannabe girls eager to follow in her well-heeled footsteps. But over the last 10 years, while those girls have been parading on red carpets and keeping up with the Kardashians, Hilton has been busy creating a billion-dollar brand. A whopping 18 perfumes (the newest one a limited 10th-anniversary edition) have resulted in $2 billion in sales…
