She (ALEXA) is absolutely beautiful, friendly, calm, centered, kind, gracious, wholesome and shy. She refines and restyles high performance automobiles.

Some of the automobiles brought to her to restyle were purchased by someone for a base price of $850,000 or more before being brought to Alexa for restyling.

Stylish shy womencan’t help glowing. They are naturals who they can’t stop expressing their creativityand emitting good vibes.

NATURAL BEAUTIES emit good vibes and glow. ADVICE: High style women have style. It is a core part of their being.

Positive vibes are everything. An enlightened person changes when he or she receives new information/vibes that changes his/her understanding and/or his/her point of view.

PAY ATTENTION TO THE VIBES people emit. Understand how women and men see/think and understand things and how they communicate verbally, nonverbally, and by their tone, by their vibes and by their focus.

ADVICE TO MEN: Try not to assume anything. However it is probably safe to assume the woman who just got her nails done like the nail treatment shown does not intend to wash the dishes after dinner tonight. If in doubt, ask. MEN WAKE UP. LOOK at your special woman’s nailtreatment. The woman who had her nails done like this is sending a signal. ADVICE TO MEN AND WOMEN: The relationshipbetween two people more than anything else determines their ability to achieve results.

HUMAN RELATIONSHIP IS NOTHING OTHER THAN ATTUNEMENT. Be “attuned.” Constantly strive to be attuned.

Today I asked two friends (a man and a woman) “Why do women get boob jobs?”

The man replied: “I never met a woman who was happy with the size of her breasts. Everyone of them wished they were smaller or larger than what they were. One woman had breasts just like the famous Venus in the Louvre and she told me that nobody had ever told her she had attractive breasts and she didn’t believe me about the statute until we went to the Louvre.” The woman replied:

Women got liberated and then bought into the idea women were supposed to look like the centerfold of PLAYBOY magazine.

“Nobody has a boob job in Europe.” She also told me that before women start caring about boys they have fun riding their bicycles but after they start caring about boys they start trying to compete, then life stops being fun.

Being an adult is fun. Being an adult is contagious. The smart men I know care more about whether a woman smiles than the size of her breasts.

ADVICE: The women in this photo have beautiful smiles and are beautiful people. That is what counts. SUCCESS IS BEING ABLE TO SMILE. There is nothing more pleasant than being around cheerful happy lively, intelligent, mature, gracious good-natured, compassionate, helpfull, smiling people.

The Five Second Rule to Prevent Sexual Harassment

Gary : June 19, 2018 2:26 pm : blog, Uncategorized


WARNING. Enact a rule/law that makes it sexual harassment for a man to look at a woman for five seconds or longer. If there is a rule/law that states it is sexual harassment for a man to look at a woman for more than five seconds, women wearing the nails shown … will cause many men to break that rule. Gary Smolker, Fashion Blogger.

CALL TO ACTION: Fashion advocates unite. Unite against the effort being made to illegalize (criminalize) sexual attractiveness.

SEXUAL ATTRACTION IS NATURAL AND NORMAL. A healthy heterosexual man who sees an attractive woman is going to look at her for more than five seconds. Penalizing a man for breaking the 5 second rule for looking at a woman with those nails for more than five seconds would be like penalizing a man for sneezing. The “don’t look at a woman for more than five second” rule is equivalent to making it against the law for a man to sneeze.

At lunch today I was told that Netflix has enacted a five second rule to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace. For the sake of the men working at Netflix, if there is a rule at Netflix that looking at a woman for five seconds is sexual harassment, I hope none of the women working st Netflix wear nails like those shown above while they are in the workplace.

COMMENT: The civilized world has trouble dealing with human sexuality. QUERY: Has the social mores pendulum swung back from sexual freedom back to Puritanism? Will everyone soon be wearing Burkas FASHION ADVOCATES UNITE AGAINST EFFORTS TO CRIMINALIZE SEXUAL ATTRACTIVENESS BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!

Colors & Shapes Can Seduce The Eye And The Mind.

Gary : June 10, 2018 12:25 pm : blog, Uncategorized


Example: There are many exact artistically perfect proportions and precisely right combinations of colors and shapes in fine cuisine.

That is one of the many reasons fine cuisine is fine cuisine.

ABOVE IS A PHOTO of fine cuisine — a photo of a colorful dish served at a popular world famous restaurant in South America. – If I remember correctly, you need to make reservations at least three months in advance to get a table there.

PSYCHOLOGICAL COMMENT: Men and women live in colors. Colors effect mood. Men and women react emotionally to colors. That is why that dish looks so stunning.

>*ADVICE TO WOMEN: Men react emotionally to complexity. Men know by intuition and by experience that Complex, Bright, Quick Decision Making, Strong, Spiritual, Sensitive, Intelligent, Lively, Colorful, Independent Thinking, Healthy, Generous, Fun to Be With Women add much welcome color and pleasant excitement to life.


*ADVICE TO MEN.: Women compete with one another for prestige. That is why they carry expensivehigh fashion designer handbags.

ADVISORY CONCLUSION: COLORFUL ART CONQUERS AND SEDUCES. Before I knew what it was, seeing that dish made my mouth water. I’ve had similar experiences with women.

PRECAUTIONARY ADVICE TO MEN AND WOMEN: Testosterone is not your friend. All that glitters is not gold.

The most active thing that a man can do is not simply to do something but to dedicate himself to doing it

PERSONAL NOTE: I love flowers, fast cars, fashion, style, glamor and women who know how to dress be fun and behave themselves. PHILOSOPHICAL OBSERVATION: Life is a space of time in which there is imposed upon us a long series of unavoidable necessities, which we must face unless we are to succumb.

QUERY: Life is brief and urgent. Does she need a mani-pedi? If so, she should go to LAQUE in North Hollywood, California. Does she need her hair styled? If so she should go to … blah blah blah.
Mystery Sells: Humans are essentially an exploratory species. The natural tendencies of the species is to explore and investigate the world around it.

Fashion Is Easy, Mystery Style Is Hard. Choose Mystery!

Gary : May 20, 2018 1:25 pm : blog

This privately owned privately used transportation vehicle – limo – comfortably seats twelve.

When the owner comes to LA his driver picks him up… In between his trips to LA it is parked at his home -idly waiting in his garage along with his driver waiting for him to come back to LA.

The photo taken by me this morning in the parking lot in front of my favorite Starbucks on Van Nuys Blvd in Sherman Oaks.

QUESTION: Does this private limo need a custom wrap or paint job to make it stand out? MY WEAK ANSWER: Why go only part way. Hey Ho Lets Go. Of course this limo needs a custom wrap or paint job … it shouldn’t be plain black.

Plain black is so plain. My weak advice is the owner should wander over to Sticker City, either in person or send color coordinator, and have the artist at Sticker City transform this limo to #gorgeous. COMMENT: There is more to SoCal lifestyle than pretty girls in bikinis playing volleyball on the beach.

STRONG COUNTER ARGUMENT: it should remain black because a black color creates mystery, makes people want to know who is inside it. Black focuses attention on the mystery of who is the owner and who is in the limo.

STRONG ADVISORY COMMENT Fashionistas and their beauty consultants and image consultants and PR agents make important difficult choices and complex decisions about presentation, fashion, style and image every day. It’s not easy to be glamorous sexy hip cool desirable or MYSTERIOUS or popular.

The color that would be right to make an exotic car stand out would not be tight or right for a limo. If a limo doesn’t create mystery cache for its occupant it’s not living up to its full potential utility.

Daring Sandals On A Rainy Day

Gary : May 13, 2018 1:44 am : blog

It sometimes trains in Southern California, in Sherman Oaks, and everywhere else all over Los Angeles. Today it was raining in Sherman Oaks, Encino and Van Nuys as I drove from my home in Van Nuys to Starbucks in Sherman Oaks and while I was on my way to my office in Encino.

A few hours ago, While I was drinking a cup of coffee in Starbucks in Sherman Oaks, I saw a woman wearing those shoes in Sherman Oaks Starbucks. She was in Starbucks also. When I asked her permission to photograph her shoes SHE told me she didn’t know it was going to rain today and she was happy she had just got a pedicure. She gave me permission to take this photo and to post it on Instagram.

COMMENT: Nice pedicure. Fabulous stylish and glamorous shoes. BTW, I like talking to strangers. I talk to strangers wherever I am, all the time.

Metaphysics & Moral Philosophy Are Important But It’s All About The Bag & Shoes

Gary : May 7, 2018 9:15 am : blog


The fairer sex has always been very interested in decorating themselves. Photographs of shoes taken by me in the Shoe Department of Nordstrom in the Westfield Topanga Shopping Mall yesterday (May 5, 2018).

ASIDE: Among medieval thinkers, Abelard’s life is one of the most colorful. Abelard thrived on #book-learning and chose the pursuit of logic and philosophy over the promised glories of a military career.

Abelard was the foremost logician of his day. The medieval university of Paris – known as the Sorbonne today – arose out of his fame as a teacher. His brilliance combined with personal arrogance combined to win him both throngs of students and life-long enemies.

Abelard was castrated for having an affair with one of his students (Heloise) and getting her #pregnant, by men hired by her uncle . Abelard considered this humiliation God’s just judgment on his lust, and both partners entered #religious orders. Abelard did not live a boring existence. Abelard defined SIN: SIN IS CONSENT TO WHAT IS UNFITTING, OR NOT DOING WHAT WE BELIEVE OUGHT TO BE DONE. The story of Heloise and Abelard is one of the world’s most celebrated and tragic love affairs.

Butt Ugly Brand Award- Valentino Rock Studs

Gary : August 3, 2017 4:03 am : blog

Wow, a shoe line that makes ugly its calling card! Apparently, young t.v. and film actress AnnaSophia Robb has been told by certain depraved grownups that these kind of shoes are acceptable on Red Carpets! (Please, someone do an intervention on this poor young lady before she gets any more weird ideas.)

(SPECIAL NOTE: For your own well-being, if you think you’re in danger of meeting someone wearing these monstrous heels, CLICK HERE).

And shame on you Valentino Rock Studs, we imagine you kicking back in your fashion room laughing at all the impressionable young celebs you tricked into wearing these joke status heels. What next, convincing young innocent women that they should buy these in flats too?

(oh no, too late! )

RED CARPET: Who is this classy celeb? (& a story about 13 trolls)

Gary : July 5, 2017 10:19 am : blog

Anna Kendrick At “Trolls” Premiere (hawt fashion, yall)

This “Trolls” red carpet look is months and months old but we here at DGTWS never get tired giving credit where it’s due.

It seems the lovely actress of Twilight and other hit films, Anna Kendrick, is making us stop to actually notice what women put on their feet for otherwise forgettable red carpet events.

Velvet black heels with hybrid straps and open toe combo? Wow. Too hawt.

Reminds us of the Icelandic Viking tradition where children put their shoes on their window sills during the 13 days of Christmas festivities. Supposedly, a group of 13 trolls called the Yule Boys show up each night to drop treats into the kids’ shoes (or rotten potatoes for misbehaving tykes).

We would predict that Anna’s shoes would cause the trolls to fight each other for the privilege of leaving her bouquets of roses in these classy heels. Merry Christmas Anna, you’ve given our weary eyes a real present!

Exceptional People by Gary Smolker

Gary Smolker : June 29, 2017 3:30 am : blog

Exceptional People Two to Four Thousand Years Ago

Today, cranes can lift up to 20 tons.

In Roman times, Jews lifted stones in Jerusalem that weighed 600 tons, Romans lifted stones that weighed 800 tons.

Before Roman times, Egyptians lifted stones that weighed 1,000 tons.

Those people were marvelous engineers and builders.

We don’t know how they were able to lift objects that weighed so much.  

That knowledge has been lost.

Exceptional People Today 

Last night, June 27, 2012, I attended a “Cornell in Hollywood” program on “how to get ‘booked’ as an actor or writer in ‘Hollywood'” at the Writers Guild of America, 7000 West Third Street, Los Angeles, California.

One hundred forty people, including myself attended this event.

Fashion Is A Form of Immediate Communication

As I looked around a room where cheese and wine were being served, before the panel discussion began, I saw a woman taking advantage of this by wearing a pair of boots.

Compared to everyone else I saw she was an exceptional person.

What should wore made a visual impact on me.

Below is a photograph of the boots she was wearing.

I concluded that she was the most interesting woman in the room and although a panel of six successful writers, actors and actresses were there to provide their insight on what it takes to be a success in Hollywood, I anticipated that she would turn out to be one of the most exceptional if not the most exceptional person attending this event.

Getting Booked for A Role

All six panelist agreed: in Los Angeles/Hollywood, you get booked if you “look right for the part” at your audition.

The auditions are taped.

More often than not, neither the director nor the producer are present at the audition.  

They look at the tape of the audition later. 

In Los Angels, the person making the decision is not there to see you act.

The people making the decisions decide if you are who they want based on how you look.

In New York you go into your audition in jeans, its all about the work, doing something emotionally.  

Not so in Los Angeles.  

In Los Angeles you have to look good at your audition.

2017: Cannes Discourages Flats On Women

Gary : June 26, 2017 8:42 am : blog

From Variety:

Danish producer Valeria Richter made headlines Wednesday for having trouble entering Cannes’ red carpet screening of “The Sea of Trees” wearing flat shoes, despite having part of her foot amputated. Though she was ultimately allowed to attend, the festival has attempted to clarify its policy. However, it still has not explained what kind of shoes will pass muster.

Emily Blunt spoke out Tuesday about what she characterized as a ban on flats, saying, “I think everyone should wear flats, to be honest. We shouldn’t wear high heels anymore. I prefer to wear Converse sneakers.” She later walked the red carpet in sky-high stiletto sandals.

While a festival office reportedly told Screen Daily that heels were required, festival director Thierry Fremaux tweeted about the controversy Tuesday, saying heels are not part of the rules. He outlined the policy: “For the steps (red carpet), nothing has changed: Smoking (tuxedo), black tie. No mention of heels.”

BET Award Red Carpet Shoe Alert

Gary : June 26, 2017 8:35 am : blog

Tamar Braxton

Wow. Can you believe she’s 40? We’ll admit that we had totally forgotten about all the non-Toni Braxton’s until we saw Tamar show up at the recent BET’s looking like a shining beacon of classy fashion.

This is a grown up 40ish woman who doesn’t need to desperately reach for the slut ring like certain other singers who are nearing 60 (you should see the look on my face as I think of a certain Material Girl still trying to sell her sexual availability to a cringing public after 30 years).

Well done, Tamar. You and your Louboutin’s and your delish black/hot pink combo is giving us hope for the future of music fashion.

Butt Ugly Shoe Alert May 19

Gary : May 30, 2017 7:42 am : blog

Post Cannes Film Festival Alert:Emma Thompson

A SHORT STORY: Emma’s ugly shoe redux reminds me of an old, old Anglo Saxon tradition regarding Brides and shoes.

This tradition holds that if you encounter a bride on her way to her wedding ceremony, you greet her thus: “A happy foot!” The bride was encouraged to respond to this greeting by kissing the passing strangers- all this in order to ward off evil spirits.

HOWEVER, the only exception was anyone who was barefooted. The strangers were then cordially invited to join the bride on the road to the church(refusal was taken as a bad omen).

Dear Emma, your ugly shoes would be refused this old tradition back in Merry Old England for good reason. (HECK, YOUR SHOES PROBABLY ENDED THE TRADITION). And here you are on the repeat offender’s list. It seems you didn’t learn your lesson the last time we lashed your bad taste, did you?

What have we done to you, oh classy and talented lady (and so few talents nowadays) to deserve this treatment? Are you trying to shock us like those no-talent young strumpets who are famous, unlike you, merely because of sex tapes and twerking in front of teenaged kids on MTV?

You’re way above that, you know. At least we thought you were. If the late Jimmy Durante of big nose fame ever had a secret cross-dressing fetish, these are the shoes he’d wear. Ouch.
