Welcome to Ask Brini!

Our question today comes from "kitschville" in Nashville, Tennessee:
"People tell me that I need to tone things down & become a "regular person". But I ask..who wants to be regular? They also say "oh, you're so wacky!" Is this just their polite way of saying that I'm the crazy aunt that nobody wants to talk about?"

Our personalities are our little calling cards. If yours is on the unusual side, don't despair - rejoice! Having a quirky demeanor can make you stand out in a crowd, and that can seem like a burden sometimes, but if we didn't have differences we'd all be Stepford wives. If you can find a way to celebrate what makes you unique you'll find it's really your greatest strength.

Sometimes we get in with a group of people who have issues with our unusual charm. That should act as a warning sign. If we have insecurities about ourselves, those people can sabotage our efforts to grow and contribute to society. If they continue to undermine your self-esteem, it's probably time to look for some new friends - ones who appreciate and support you as you are.

-- Love, Brini

Described as part Donna Reed, part Mary Tyler Moore, Maxwell makes kitsch feel classy through her unparalleled personal flair for home design, entertaining and savvy household tips. Inspired by a divine thrift shop purchase of 1950's nesting bowls, she first began sharing her vintage/classic know-how with other Manhattanites in 1998 through her self-titled cable access television show. With an emphasis on uncompromising fabulousness, Brini quickly garnered a devoted fan base and established herself as the go-to-girl on vintage fashion and mid-century modern treasures. After five years on the local airwaves her show was picked up by the Style Network. The subsequent series has been called a delightful success and has attracted a diverse audience thorough its national platform.
