A Beauty Named: L.Shima

A Beauty Named is a new concept thought up to shine light on women we believe are stylish, interesting, and talented in their own unique way. They represent a rare group who value the smallest treasures in life, whether it be a good meal, small fashion accessory, or photograph that inspires. Audrey Hepburn said it best: “The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows. The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years.”

How would you describe your personal style?
