Black Friday 2014

11 . 28 . 14

Why anyone would want to go to a big box retailer and possibly get punched in the face for a discounted flat screen tv is beyond me but to each his own. Although, I’m pretty sure there have been some fancy lady fist fights over discounted shoes at the sales at Barneys and Bergdorfs. Black […]

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 […]

Even though it’s supposed to be 90 degrees in New York tomorrow, I’m shopping the fall collection that just debuted on Emerson Fry. It’s filled with cozy sweaters and chic coats as well a few pairs of lust worthy shoes and boots. Just as lovely as the clothes is the home in which they shoot […]

If you have been wondering why my posts have been going up late if at all, it’s because in between working on projects, I’ve been making countless visits to the tailor and cobbler in preparation for my summer sojourn in Paris. Packing for four months is infinitely harder than packing for a week or two. […]

Now that I have the dates of my summer sojourn to Paris planned, I’m already thinking about what I am going to pack. I will be away for four months and will have to be prepared for a temperature fluctuation from around 50 degrees to possibly 80 degrees or more, especially as I travel to […]

The Boss of Wu

02 . 13 . 14

You could tell something was up at the Hugo Boss by Jason Wu show today based on the front row. Diane Kruger, Reese Witherspoon, and Gwyneth Paltrow (photo by @bagsnob) were just down the row from Gerard Butler and Scott Eastwood.  The clothes that came down the runway won’t just appeal to celebrities though. They […]

Black Friday

11 . 29 . 13

While you all are braving Black Friday at stores in America, I will be traveling back to Paris from London.  I wish you lots of bargains, a good parking spot, and Godspeed. In honor of the day, I’ve put together another ode to black. Cheers!   all images via tumblr

I’ve been putting street style photos of Giorgia Tordini in my personal style inspiration folder and on the blog for a while without knowing her name. It was a comment on a post on The Sartorialist that led me to discover that Giorgia is Italian, a fashion stylist, a contributor to Grazia.it (where she’s often photographed […]

Weekend Inspiration

Winning Combination

03 . 13 . 13

I posted on black and gold back in November but the color combination is still inspiring me.  This time it’s also mixed with a little white and maybe a touch of wood or marble. Black was big fashion look off the runway at Paris Fashion Week which is probably why I can’t stop thinking about […]

Black & Gold

11 . 28 . 12

Every time I used to see anything black and gold, I would think of the Pittsburgh Steelers.  But I think these pics prove it can work for more than football uniforms. It was seen all over the fall/winter runways and also works well for interiors.  And you definitely can’t go wrong with anything black and […]

Back in Black

11 . 23 . 12

Black Friday is the phrase used to describe the shopping day after Thanksgiving when retailers go from “in the red” to “in the black” which refers to making a profit.  For me, it’s the day that makes me glad I don’t live near a mall.  This post is my chic homage to Black Friday with […]

C’est Fini

10 . 04 . 12

Paris fashion week is fini and so are all the spring 2013 shows.  I can barely make it through New York fashion week so I don’t know how the editors make it through a whole month. The Paris street style looks were filled with a lot of black but also a lot of great coats. […]

Chic in Milan

09 . 28 . 12

The fashion flock have moved onto Paris but let’s take a minute to review some street style looks from Milan. The main problem with most street style looks is that people are trying too hard.  I’ve chosen these ensembles because they actually look relatable, even the colorful ones.  And while most of us wouldn’t leave […]
