I’ve received so many messages from women who are kicking themselves for snoozing on the Cos sweater and skirt sets that I posted in August. I’m hoping that they will place some of these new sweater and skirt sets in their cart and checkout immediately because these are pretty spectacular. I’m all in on this […]

This morning, I headed down to Soho in 90 degree humidity for a preview of Banana Republic‘s new home and fashion collections in their new temporary space at 515 Broadway.

I’ve always loved the French phrase la rentrée which means the reentry. It encompasses back to school and back to work as everyone returns from their August holidays and tries to get back on track. They’ve already come back but as Americans go back to school and work after this long Labor Day weekend, it’s time to […]

I already posted my What I Bought for Fall post but since then I’ve added a few more pieces. They are some items I posted in my Instagram Stories but since many people won’t go looking for them in my saved Shopping highlights on my bio page, I thought I should post them here as […]

I used to get too excited about wearing fall clothes and would end up sweating to death in September. I finally learned my lesson and now I try to plan better transitional outfits for warmer weather. I’ve partnered with Net-a-Porter to help you figure out what to wear early in the season with their new […]

Summer is not my season and there is nothing I look forward to more than autumn in New York. Fall is the city’s finest season. There is energy and excitement in the air again as everyone returns to the city and fashion week begins. There are always many anticipated art exhibitions, design events, and auctions […]

Style vs. Fashion

Style vs. Fashion There seems to be something afoot in the fashion world. One of my most fashionable friends sent me a message recently lamenting that “every (fashion) influencer has the same voice and cadence today” and was annoyed when they post the same items on the same day. “Nothing is organic or cool! Literally […]

I reposted this cover from the September 2023 issue of Harper’s Bazaar France in my Instagram Stories Wednesday night and was disappointed that some followers couldn’t identify the signature blonde hair of one of France’s most famous actresses. They must not have been paying attention since I have posted her many times including just recently […]

Navy Days with ME+EM

A few followers asked me for navy fashions for fall and ME+EM has some great pieces right now. I chose styles that can be mixed and matched for work, travel, and going out. A lot of people have told me that they have to go back to the office this September so a navy suit […]

The French brand Sézane just launched a fabulous new collection of bags and shoes that make me very excited to see their full autumn collection when it’s available. Until then, here’s a few of my favorites. Nothing says fall like a burnt orange sweater. These two tone loafers would be great with white jeans or […]

As you know, I’m beyond excited for fall but I know that most fashions are too heavy to be worn right away. So I’m partnered with MATCHES to show you how to style a leather skirt from September to November so you can take it from crisp to cold weather. The best part is that […]

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have already seen some of these pieces but I thought it might be nice to put a post together of how I will wear them this fall. Since I plan to wear these pieces with things already in my closet, I tried to find similar items so […]

I reposted a meme this weekend that asked, “Before Instagram, were people always on vacation?”. It has felt like people have been away all summer but right now it’s compounded by the fact that most Europeans are on holiday for two weeks or even the whole month of August. So if you can’t beat ’em, […]
