As one of my 15 things that every woman needs in her closet, the oversized clutch, in this season’s hottest color, is splurge-worthy. Remember that this bag works for day and night and the color is one of the new neutrals (navy, grey, cream), making it versatile and special.

It’s no secret that while I love the novelty and craftsmanship of a designer shoe, I also love the affordability and wearability of my favorite mid-market brand: Cole Haan. This season, they knocked it out of the park with their Chelsea Pump in a bunch of fabulous and fun colors of patent leather. A bold shoe… [Cont.]
Part of my job requires discovering creative uses for spaces and the furniture that fills them. As most of my clients have children, I am often negotiating how to stylishly store all the equipment of children’s lives: what I call ‘kid clutter’. Nowhere is this more important than in the foyer, a space that serves… [Cont.]
My clients often worry that they’ll never be able to shop again; fearing a regression to old buying habits, they want my stamp of approval on most purchases post Mile High Style intervention.

‘One of the first things I always teach my clients is about the personal style point system. You should never have more than 7 things on. You know, like your earrings count for 2 points, those daisys count for 3 points. But the best thing to do is, right before you go out, look in… [Cont.]
Despite the odd miss, Gwyneth Paltrow is a style star. Her recent endorsement of J.Crew puts us in good company. If you’re new to this blog and have missed the last two years of gushing over J.Crew, please take a look here.
In the eternal search to be stylish and comfortable, flats are always a popular solution. Loafers have made their comeback in the last few years, rivaling the trendier oxford and classic ballet flat as the comfortable shoe DO. Available from J.Crew in the color of the moment (which I was endorsing last year)… (Just sayin’).
In designing and decorating your home, there is no insignificant detail. From the paint on the walls to the stain on the hardwood floors, the cocktails you serve and the glasses that hold them, each should be an intentional and thoughtful expression of you and your home’s style. There are certain details in every home that seem… [Cont.]
