If there is one thing you need to buy for fall 2013, it’s an ivory fisherman cable knit sweater. You might actually have one waiting to be pulled down from the top of the closet. It’s a winter staple for many that has been updated by luxurious designers such as The Row but you can […]

More Fall Fashions

08 . 16 . 13

I don’t shop that much at Zara because of the quality and fit but after seeing their new fall campaign, I decided to give them another try.  I braved the tourists to shop at their Fifth Avenue store to specifically buy this maroon full leather skirt. Seems I wasn’t the only one since I got […]

Neutral Territory

10 . 25 . 11

I love this outfit that was photographed by Facehunter during fashion week.  The color combination makes a lovely ensemble and also decorating scheme.  The pop of black adds a little punctuation to neutral shades like camel, brown, ivory, and white.   The best part of using these shades in a room is that you can […]

For the Boys

10 . 23 . 11

I realized recently that I haven’t been giving enough love to my male readers.  And yes, I do have them.  What better way to say I heart you than with a fall fashion and decor melange that was inspired by Jenna Lyons’ dining room above.  All the fashion photos are by my favorite street style […]

Autumn Inspiration

09 . 07 . 11

The weather in New York has turned from summer to autumn overnight.  Unfortunately, it’s not the sunny and warm autumn that I was dreaming about but a cold and damp one.  I hope it clears up soon so I can wear all my new clothes without covering them up with a trench.  It’s definitely making […]

By all these lovely tokensSeptember days are here,With summer’s best of weatherAnd autumn’s best of cheer. –   Helen Hunt Jackson, September

I’m officially over summer and ready for fall fashions.  I think it was the Chloe outfit above that really pushed me over the edge.  It’s part of a beautiful spread in the Bergdorf Goodman Pre-Fall 2011 catalog. Photographer Max Farago shot model Eniko Mihalik in fabulous fashions against gorgeous architecture and interiors.  Just try and tell me […]

Chic in Camel.

10 . 18 . 10

Fall fashion is all about camel and these outfits are the epitome of chic.  I found these photos on a website called Les Mads that is unfortunately all in German so I can’t tell you much about them.  I do know they were taken in Paris and I wish I could dress like this everyday.  […]

One of my readers asked me to post about chic Halloween decorations.  I don’t really decorate for Halloween so I suggest visiting Martha Stewart who has an entire magazine dedicated to the holiday.  I do however enjoy decorating for autumn and I’m sure most of these ideas could be modified for Halloween.  Even though orange […]

After a week of rain, we are finally feeling crisp autumnal weather in New York.  Pumpkins are for sale on every corner and soon it will be time to light a fire.  Happy October! “There is no season when such pleasant and sunny spots may be lighted on, and produce so pleasant an effect on […]

The weather in New York may feel like the height of summer but the calendar says it’s the first full day of autumn.  In order to get us in the mood, I thought I would post photos of the fall foliage that should be upon us soon. “Autumn is a second spring when every leaf […]
