Indian Summer is a lovely occurrence if it doesn’t involve 80% humidity.  We’re sweating here in New York which makes it difficult to wear fall clothes.  When the weather breaks, I’ll be looking for an olive green parka like these in the latest issue of Vogue magazine.  They are perfect for the city or country living […]

I know a lot of you love my outfit posts so I’m going to try to start posting more.  The only problem is that I subscribe to the “quality not quantity” rule of thumb when it comes to shopping for clothes for I end up wearing the same things a lot. My wardrobe is made […]

Chic Cable Knit

10 . 01 . 14

The New York Times Fashion section just posted this photo on their Instagram.  They caught the actress Louise Grinberg leaving the Miu Miu fashion show in Paris. I love everything about this look from her hair to the ladylike blouse and grey cable knit sweater and pants paired with the burgundy bag.  It’s the perfect […]

My friend Heidi Wynne came over recently to show me her new cashmere collection for fall. Now that the weather seems to finally be turning cooler, I thought I would share her very chic new offerings with you.  As you know, I couldn’t live without her wraps.  I wore them almost everyday in Paris and […]

Red Hot Reese

09 . 29 . 14

I was wondering why the October issue of Vogue magazine was so late to the newsstand.  Perhaps the cover line about “George Clooney’s Ravishing Bride” has something to do with it. His wedding to Amal Alamuddin just took place in Venice, Italy this past weekend.  But it’s lovely Reese Witherspoon who graces the cover is […]

This fashion month might be the best yet for street style.  There seem to be less crazy costumes and more real life ensembles. I love that many editors and buyers are wearing denim since that’s my daily uniform. I’m also seeing a lot of army green, in addition to camel and black. If you’re at a loss […]

Drake’s London

09 . 25 . 14

Someone recently asked me what was new for menswear for fall.  The best thing about men’s fashion is that it doesn’t really change.  A man could buy a well made piece and keep it for a lifetime.  But if you or the man in your life needs a little upgrade, definitely check out Drake’s of London. Their […]

Sweater Weather

09 . 22 . 14

Today marks the first day of fall and the chill in the air means it’s officially sweater weather. C magazine featured some of the best knitwear of the season in their September issue.  If the Oscar de la Renta Cable Knit Sweater above is a little out of your price range, you could try the Ivory Cable […]

My favorite seasonal quote is the one from The Great Gatsby below, “life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.” While autumn doesn’t officially start until next week, it has gotten crisp in New York. Not only is everyone happy to no longer be sweating but they are also happy to […]

Admiring Annina

09 . 12 . 14

My new favorite street style subject is C magazine fashion editor Annina Mislin.  Her style is an interesting combination of conservative and daring. While I would never wear a bra top and open shirt on the street, I admire her moxie and her abs.  Someone needs to find out her workout routine  and post it […]

In case you happened to miss it, Anna Wintour, the editor-in-chief of Vogue and the most important woman in the fashion word, answered 73 Questions online today.  The most important take away is to never wear head-to-toe black.  You can watch it here and see her office that was decorated by Carrier and Company. 

Pretty on Pinterest

09 . 09 . 14

As much as I love attending runway shows, you often miss the details when the models are wafting past you and the person in front of you is taking pics on their ginormous iPad.  So it was lovely to see Oscar de la Renta post a multitude of detail photos of the clothing and accessories from their Spring 2015 […]

Chic on the Street

09 . 08 . 14

As everyone knows, some of the best looks each fashion week aren’t on the runways.  The street style looks are also looking much better this season.  Maybe it’s because it’s been so hot.  I think the weather has also been the reason we’re seeing so much white after Labor Day too. Gotta get it in […]

Fashion at Home

09 . 07 . 14

Fashion designer Adam Lippes presented his Spring 2015 collection in his duplex on Washington Square Park on Saturday. It was the perfect backdrop to his elegant and interesting designs. Too bad all fashion shows aren’t this chic. To view all the Adam Lippes looks for Spring 2015, check out Style.com and to read more about […]

Fashion Week Flash

09 . 05 . 14

It’s only Day 2 of New York Fashion Week but we’ve already seen a lot of great looks.  It’s so hot and steamy in the city right now that I wish I could wear most of them right now.  A white dress should be at the top of your shopping list for Spring 2015 but […]

Fashion Week Kickoff

09 . 04 . 14

New York Fashion Week kicked off last night with a fete at Gracie Mansion and I noticed a theme among a few of the designers.  Jenna Lyons of J.Crew, Ralph Lauren, and Carolina Herrera all wore grey and white.  A great way to transition your white pieces for after Labor Day. I’ll be attending all […]
