A Blouse For All Occasions
When I first moved to the East Coast it took me ten years to wear a black coat, ten years! It didn’t take long to understand that dark clothes have there place here, a dark palette can be timeless and chic. I still incorporate color in my wardrobe although I tend to add more neutral colors and prints. This Tucker top is a perfect addition to a wardrobe for its both chic and classic, two...
Brooklyn in the House
Grand Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn has slowly been growing into a little fashion nook that either one stumbles upon or makes the trek on the L to check out. I just saw Tracy Feith opening up his shop the other morning, I was impressed that he was up so early! You’ll also find the A.P.C outlet and the Paul Smith outlet here. Today at Paul Smith my husband and I stocked up on art books...
I want to make cut out hearts....
but I do not have the time with a my feisty newborn. In the meantime I will appreciate the talented ones at Decor 8 and Leslie with Color Me Pretty’s Holiday contribution.
3 days until Christmas....
When I splurge on beauty products and right now anything in the beautifying category is considered a splurge, I buy brands I love. My all time favorite brand is NARS, I love all of Francois Nar’s products. I especially love his eye shadows for even the colors that are muted make a difference, they just shine. Lorac is another amazing brand especially with her concealers and bronzers. I...
I really miss Domino, and when I would work on Cookie’s (another big loss) fashion segments I felt like a lucky girl since Cookie was on the same floor of Domino. I loved peeking, okay stalking…the Domino side and looking at the beautiful items they were shooting for the mag. I am not ready to give up on print, I’ll have to be pulled away kicking and screaming from my favorite...
Today was quite chilly, not the “there is a chill outside” the “it is f-in cold outside!” So…I decided to look up Isabel Marant’s summer collection which is so damn beautiful I CAN’T HANDLE IT. The best part is that her first U.S store opens here in NYC in February. Thankfully her Etoile (lower line!)will also be at the Greene Street location. Do your...
April, add water then wear this.
My best friend April, who I love, love, love needs an outfit to wear to a chi-chi event. It’s not a black tie event and its kind of like the Oscars…the celebrities will get all the attention. But, this does not in anyway mean that her presence is not important and will not be noticed. She needs to look great and feel good as cliche as it sounds. I picked quite a few pieces for her...
No they didn't.
Yes they did! Net-a-porter just made deeper mark downs, 50% to 70%. Happy Holidays!
Candice Waldron’s boutique Jumelle is nestled on the popular Bedford street in Williamsburg. When the weekend hits I try my best to walk only on side streets of my popular neighborhood especially now with my baby’s ginormous stroller. Nevertheless, for Jumelle I will brave the fashion hungry tourists that push their way around seeking some of the best labels to be found in my...
We're the LUCKY ones...
The New York Times did a Q&A about two talented sisters (and two damn good friends who give this new mom emotional support) and one of their new designs, the Lucky Beam. Read the piece, Marina (you’ll hear more about Mizz M in the future) and I were squealing with excitement that Penelope Green wrote such a great piece on these fab two!
ohhh great gift-y....
My good friend Ericka Mcconnell, the awesome photographer who is responsible for Chicster Bulletin’s opening photo ask if I would do a bit of a style update to her wardrobe. She is looking for basic pieces that are chic, yet fit into her life as a working mother. I chose looks that would fine-tune her wardrobe to work with her Parisian girl meets California Boho style. Sweaters: E lives in...
I wish I didn’t love this jacket. Loving this jacket has made me a stalker of all jackets of sequins. I’ve looked for a less (much) expensive version but they all have paled in comparison. The sad part of all of this is I have not one party to wear this amazing piece, unless you count the Santa parties baby Charlie has been invited to. Sigh, I’m trying so hard to not be that...
It is old habit for me to look for “things” people may want, as a fashion editor I’ve worked on many gift guides for some great magazines. This season as I sit and hang out with baby Charlie I’m going to post a few of my favorites that I hope either solve a gift solution or help point you in a stylish direction! Also, visit Jen at the haystack needle, she has put together...
