The problem with packing for a trip isn’t simply what to bring, it’s most definitely also what to wear while you’re away. It’s the closet full of clothes and nothing to wear on the smallest scale: a suitcase (or two) full of random items that have no style cohesiveness… So let me help. In one… [Cont.]

In continuation of the shoot I styled for Yellowscene Magazine’s Summer issue, I wanted to speak about one of my favorite trends.  I’ve long maintained that childhood impressions inform our later style preferences.

In honor of my lovely friend Donna and her recent engagement (and acquisition of the most sublime Anne Sportun ring), I am resurrecting this post.  Wearing dirty diamonds is like pairing a fabulous steak with ‘Two Buck Chuck’: a total waste.

When it comes to building a shoe collection, I’ve learned to err on the side of versatile. My 20s were spent in search of heels that were fabulous, full of attitude, and totally impractical. Predictably, none accompanied me into my 30s. From the hot pink stiletto Blahniks (back when neon made another push into mainstream… [Cont.]

Chambray Chic

For me, the best part about visiting New York City is the people watching. On a recent trip, perched in a prime window seat in the West Village, it was an overwhelming sight: people in New York City BRING IT and this Summer, they’re all bringing the chambray shirt.  I’ve been familiar with this look… [Cont.]
