hot pink celine

Truthfully, it’s probably not healthy to covet a bag the way I covet this Celine Luggage Tote. The combination of the serious style and silhouette with the whimsy of the color is too perfect.

Working as a style consultant for the last two years, I am sometimes surprised by challenges to my firmly held opinions. For example, I’ve changed my mind on Diane Von Furstenberg’s clothing by witnessing the amazing things her dresses have done for my clients. Additionally, I’ve seen cardigan sweaters from catalogue behemoth Boden (typically a… [Cont.]

It’s officially the month to eat, drink, and be merry, and I’ve already received numerous requests for information and recommendations on appropriate and inspired Holiday dressing. Between the brunches and bashes and parties of cocktail and costume, knowing what to wear where alleviates some of the pressure of this season. SPARKLE- More than any other… [Cont.]
