Often, the best style decisions are ones contrary to your instincts. Such is the case with the most important shoe for this Summer of COLOR. By contrasting perfectly with bright shades (including my favorite on-trend neon), a brown sandal balances the boldness.

Working with clients to define their particular style, I often reference how early experiences inform our later preferences. The reasons we’re drawn to certain looks (whether we realize it or not) typically have roots in when and where we were raised, the culture of that time, and our memories. With a little bit of prodding,… [Cont.]

There’s a long-standing style musing: women dress for other women. The wisdom behind the sentiment maintains that since men aren’t as style savvy or detail oriented, women look for acceptance and praise from female friends.

We’re nearly there. With maybe a few more cold days to go, it’s time to get the jump on the most important accessories for Spring.  Straw Fedora– I’m a fan of all hats, but this raffia fedora from Two Sole Sisters (pictured) might be my all-time favorite.

In Manhattan, there is no shortage of beautiful spaces- museums, galleries, boutiques, retail meccas, hotels, and restaurants, all offering an escape from the madness of the city. Even the gyms are designed so that beauty and functionality can co-exist. Here in Boulder, the beauty is on the outside which is perhaps why our interior aesthetic sensibilities are, sadly,… [Cont.]
