The School of Flaunt

Back when "Flying Was Fun" Alexandra Smythe and Cate Clarke were Flight Attendants with a Major International Carrier. Prior to Private Jets coming into vogue, Alexandra and Cate traveled in the First Class World, meeting and greeting the top celebrities, politicians who would become Presidents, nouveau riche, and yes the occasional Headline Grabbing Criminal in Handcuffs!

What the two ladies viewed and experienced became fodder for the School of Flaunt, so much money, such bad taste and oh those terrible manners. Something had to be done! Hence, The School of Flaunt Handbook was born. Read More

Collection Mania: Christopher Radko

Category: Guest Writers  |  Permalink

Published: Friday, October 8, 2010

In Lesson Eleven we explored Hobbies Worth Your Worth or Collection Mania. Of course we didn't discuss the past frenzy of collecting Beanie Babies here. Unfortunately those who thought they were going to pay for their children's or grandchilden's college educations with that craze were sadly mistaken. Remember students fads like this and others such as a Pet Rock are never going to enhance your library let alone your bank account. Simply put these could be called a FLAUNT FLOP! We grimace at the idea of displaying them and highly suggest that they be put in a child's room. But let us return to collecting.

We recently became Facebook Friends with Christopher Radko otherwise known as the "Czar of Christmas" by the NY Times. For over a quarter of a century people with discerning taste have been collecting his ornaments. Christopher brought back the art of fine European glass ornaments and the tradition of collecting them. Private collections have been started by celebrities from Elton John, Barbra Steisand, Whoopi Goldberg, Ben Affleck, Heidi Klum, Rosie O'Donnell to Giselle Bundchen. These beautiful ornaments have also graced the Xmas trees of the White House, the Governor's mansion in Connecticut to Gracie Mansion in NYC. We might add here that your "divas" of good taste, Alexandra and Cate also have their Xmas trees covered in Radko ornaments. With all of these recommendations why would you not start collecting them?

As Christopher Radko said, "Being a kid again, while actually an adult is super fun." So as the Holiday period is quickly coming upon us, think of giving a beautiful ornament to your friends and family. What a lovely way for you to be saying every year, as they look at that ornament, "I'm thinking of you and wish you happy holidays and a wonderful new year." Now this is what SOF describes as a FLAUNT FABULOUS gift!

Your Divas of Good Taste,

Alexandra and Cate
