Iain Webb has spent his life, since the age of 14, not only in the company of a ballet but in good ballet company as well. For a man with his striking resume, he’s humble in his accomplishments. Iain has produced and directed international performances as well as international stars. He’s even performed himself as Sancho Panza with The Royal Ballet in Baryshnikov’s production of Don Quixote. It’s all quite impressive.
Iain also happens to be a sharp dressed man with an uninhibited eye for style as well as an inherent ability to combine sleek, yet edgy, tailored separates. And, he’s known for his signature accessories – a pair of sunglasses and a sophisticated cross-body bag, usually of the Louis Vuitton variety.

Ever since I began taking Pure Barre classes, I’ve been on a search for the perfect sock. It can’t be too thick ’cause I’m hot enough already during the workout. Adding what feels like fuzzy warm winter slippers elevates my temp and becomes a total distraction–I can’t stay focused. But I also need those grippy nubs on the sole for extra traction.
I got lucky while scouring the Internet–I stumbled on Shashi Cool Feet Socks. They are just the right thin-ness, with traction, and they are completely chic. Of course, they were created by a woman who spent nearly two decades doing Pilates and who knew we need a good sock for a workout. As with all clever inventions, Natalie Lerch Sudit used her experience to develop a sock that performs in a studio environment while still maintaining an element of style.//Click Here for more @SarasotaMagazine.com

No doubt you’ve noticed that there’s a wonderful world movement, or rather a consciousness, about being environmentally aware from the kitchen to the closet.

This is my favorite, favorite time of year — I just love all the holiday scents of cinnamon and spices. And, I’m crazy for anything pumpkin flavored including ice cream. So, this year I set out to find a healthy version. OK, OK, it’s not raw but we discussed that early on…I’m basically raw-ish. But, if you’re a Paleo fan…this qualifies! //Click here for the recipe at SarasotaMagazine.com
