Cars Classic …. we are what we drive!



A man’s home is his castle…. a woman’s car is her passion!!!     What does the car you drive say about you….?!

Please take note ….    a recent study states that your ‘ride’ says more about you than you can even imagine.   That’s right … your car is talking to the opposite sex, whether you like it or not.

A woman driving a Jaguar XF is a lover of luxury … single or married.    A man valet parking his Porsche 911 at the Ritz is a determined, highly successful middle aged professional.  The BMX Z3 is a very smooth car, and it’s owner is a very smooth guy.

Our ‘ride’ is a window into our soul.   Education, tech smarts and wealth are just a few traits that one’s car can portray.  Are you racy or outdoorsy,  sleek or determined?  Attributes of our car mirror our self-image.  Those with a strong sense of self,  those with discerning tastes  and those who are willing to stand out in a crowd will reflect these things in the color, style and speed of the wheels they choose.

US News and World Report recently ranked  the worlds ‘sexiest’ cars.    Believe it or not, the Chevy Corvette outranked the Lotus Elite and Porsche Cayman.    As an owner of a Porsche 356A cabriolet,  I am very biased toward the classic and chic … and perhaps the sexiness appeals as well.   Hmmmm…  Telling, isn’t it?!

Every Bullet has a Target… Bullets4Peace



The showstopper at ROCK Fashion Week 2009 in Miami was – hands down – the remarkable show put on by designer Raffi Anteby commemorating the one-year anniversary Hollywoods most rapidly growing jewelry craze  – Bullets 4Peace.    With nothing worn but the stunning bullet jewelry,  models in body paint danced with fire, water and lights to speak about and exemplify  their ‘bullet’s’ significance. 

Raffi was a soldier in Israel who lost his entire platoon, and later watched his best friend shot 18 times.   This inspired the ‘Bullet’ jewelry which is intended to make a statement that people can’t be so quick with the trigger and the use of firearms.    The name ‘Bullets4Peace’ came from Raffi’s mother.  

Now,  diamond studded, gold, platinum, bronze and silver in twelve designs of bullet jewelry are being worn by the likes of such celebrities as Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, Gloria Estefan, Jaime Foxx, Snoop Dogg and Eva Longoria.   The line aims to benefit his Reloading Life Foundation, which includes 12 bullets of 12 different designs with proceeds donated to 12 charities each year,  including the launch of Raffi’s  Every Bullet Has a Target program. The program is designed to help create awareness and raise money for various charitable organizations by pairing individual celebrities with jewelry pieces.

The ‘Ten Most Wanted’ List … What would YOU pay for these luxuries?

Nothing but the best.


Nothing but the best.

How much would you pay for a pair of jeans?  Does $11,300 for a pair of Earnest Sewn and Van Cleef and Arpels Alhambra jeans sound reasonable?

Forbes has found the World’s Most Outrageously priced items.   When given as a gift, these items convey a message of caring and love.  When shown in a home, they send a message of prestige.  A message of belonging to an exclusive and elite group.

The new Volkswagon Bugatti Veyron has a price tag of $1.8 Million.   What you are buying?  Performance, function and a perception of quality.  And the only production car with more than 1000 horsepower. Extreme pick-up.  A very unique product.

How about a burial plot overlooking the Pacific?  In Santa Barbara, this exclusive location for a couple to have eternal rest is priced at $83,000.

In San Francisco, you can find a ‘Grande Luxe’ facial for $750.00.  This comes with ‘caviar eye treatment’ and ‘Diamond Peel microdermabrasion’.

BlingH20 sells for $40 a bottle.  Sold at the MTV Music Awards and the Emmy’s, this Tennessee water was made famous by Kevin G. Boyd,  producer of the The Jamie Foxx Show and Girlfriends.   What makes it different?  It’s exclusivity.  

There is a theory that the more that people have access to a product, the less value it holds.   The ‘exclusivity’ of that product allows the user to feel elite, or part of an exclusive group.  Nintendo Wii capitalized on this theory.   The lack of availability drove prices of the Wii up to where people were paying more than twice retail value to purchase this ‘must-have’ product.

This is emotion-based pricing.  The art of Luxury Pricing.
