A couple of months ago, I was texting with Emma Holzer, the young woman who graces our cover this month, about what to wear for a photo shoot, and I was impressed to learn that this budding Hollywood actress cared more about dressing consciously than dressing to impress. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with doing both, so stylist Logan Horne and I hatched a plan to outfi Emma in all pre-owned designer clothing that not only looks chic and timeless, but also negates the energy and resources required to make something new. Many women have followed this fashion strategy for years, but now the practice of frequenting luxury consignment boutiques like The RealReal has become more mainstream, largely because of a collective desire to lessen our environmental impact. At the same…

What do you find at the intersection of fashion, art, and globe-trotting creative types? Some seriously covetable threads—and Deck Concept Store in West Palm Beach. Roberta Rosa and Ana Gomes founded the unique boutique last fall. Originally from Brazil, the two met when Rosa helped to bring Gomes’ PH Praia beachwear brand to the United States. Together, they see fashion from a global perspective and intend to showcase new and emerging designers from around the world at Deck, while also creating a gathering space for those with similar interests through elements like a photo studio and a coworking area. “I started Deck so I could share my passion with other people,” says Rosa. She chose to launch Deck in West Palm Beach “not just because it could be a good business location,…

“WHAT I’VE REALIZED ABOUT OUR HOMELESS NEIGHBORS ON THE STREET IS THAT THEY’RE VOICELESS.” Kicked out of his house at the age of 16, Francky Pierre-Paul found himself couch surfing and sleeping on park benches. “It was demoralizing,” he recalls. “I hated it, and I hated myself.” He says it was like having two identities: At night, he was homeless and alone with nowhere to turn. But during the day, he was at school and surrounded by friends—masking his feelings of depression and loneliness. “That’s why I’m so big on changing the perspective of homelessness and how people view those who are struggling,” Pierre-Paul says. Now, as an advocate, Pierre-Paul helps the more than 1,500 people experiencing homelessness in Palm Beach County. He often find himself back in those same parks he once called…

The ancient Greek physician Hippocrates famously mused: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” In our current environment, this credo has never been more vital and the immune system has never felt more important. A complex network of white blood cells, tissues, and organs like the spleen, tonsils, and lymph nodes, the immune system is essential for our survival, defending us against bacteria, viruses, parasites, and disease. Luckily, nature has provided us with key nutrients and vitamins to support this system that keeps us strong and healthy. The main fuels that boost our immunity are antioxidants, such as vitamins A, C, D, E, and zinc, all of which protect our cells from free radicals and damage. In addition to diet, there are numerous other ways to boost your immune…
