One item I am always on the lookout for? Nude patent leather wedges. More versatile, comfortable and practical than the high heel, these shoes are especially important as we approach dress season. Simply, these shoes work with everything; the nude color maintains the neutrality, while the patent provides the attitude. Remember that if you’re attending a… [Cont.]

I love clutches. Heading into wedding season, it’s as important a piece as any to have at the ready. The gold clutch pictured is the perfect accompaniment to any Spring/Summer frock, whether the celebration is beach chic or farm formal. Vintage is best, and to that end, the biggest selection can be found here.
Of all style conundrums, the most popular among friends, clients, and just about everyone I know, involves the fallacy that new = better. Somehow, if you just bought it (a top, jeans, shoes, jewelry, anything), it looks better and makes an outfit more stylish. In reality, after one or two wears, the novelty wears off… [Cont.]
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.]
For a number of reasons, I tend to keep my professional involvement with weddings to a minimum. Mainly, I am not a great believer in and follower of the rules and traditions of fashion, of which weddings are steeped. However, through my (non-professional) consulting with two bride-to-be friends, I’ve noticed a subtle and exciting shift… [Cont.]
If you’re anything like me, the task of doing (or redoing) your outdoor space is a tedious one. Put off by exorbitant prices and an uninspiring selection, I can’t seem to get excited about paying a lot of money for boring stuff that lives outside. However, as the weather continues to warm and everyone is… [Cont.]
Ever notice that anytime you need a specific item for a specific event, you’re bound to come up either disappointed or empty handed. This shopping trend (where pieces are purchased on an as-needed basis) is known as mission oriented and, most unfortunately, it doesn’t work. To combat this retail black hole, I urge clients to always… [Cont.]
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. Perfect for beach and city wear, it’s uncommonly easy;… [Cont.]
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.]
