I’ve been intending to pen a piece about host style and, with the July 4th holiday just around the corner, now is the ideal time. Being a good host/hostess is an integral part of having great style- your home should be a reflection of you, and how you welcome and care for people leaves a… [Cont.]

This bra (introduced to me by my girls at Chelsea) forever solves the problem of ‘what to do about my bra straps showing’. With the Marie Jo Daisy Bra, you want them to show. Available in three styles and eight colors, at
One great side effect of moving is an automatic re-prioritizing, both of the things required from a new home (the subject of my article last week), and from old belongings.

What is ‘progressive designer fashion’? Clothing and accessories by labels you mostly don’t know, but should: Vanessa… [Cont.]

But there is also a mystique to this bag, derived largely around its [un]availability. Since the seasonal debut (back in… [Cont.]
Loving this little retro, lotta fun Sonia Rykiel Summer blouse. There is always something a little sweet and whimsical about her designs and this piece is no different. Pair with a navy or black pencil skirt to play up its throwback appeal or tucked into trouser jeans to make it of-the-moment. Available here, 70% off.
Those of you familiar with Mile High Style are well aware of my insistence on smart splurging and adherence to quality over quantity. Nowhere is that more important than in the purchase of the investment piece, the handbag, aka the ‘Big Girl Bag’. Simply put, a Big Girl Bag comes from a top design house… [Cont.]
