I’ve been quietly shopping at Talbots for about a year now.  Ever since my mother dragged me into the Shadyside store over Christmas and I realized that they had cute dresses, their petites fit me perfectly, and the prices couldn’t be beat!  I just received their Spring catalog yesterday and it looks like Julianne Moore […]

Color My World

01 . 25 . 11

The biggest trend on the Spring/Summer 2011 runways was color.  Not just a little color but bright, bold, beautiful hues that will shake up your world.  After this brutal winter, I can’t think of anything I want to wear more than cheerful colors.  There are many interior designers who embrace color in their work like […]

As you probably know by know, orange is my favorite color.  While red can signal danger and seem aggressive, I always think orange looks cheerful and happy. I do however like orange paired with a little red as well as pink, fuchsia and purple.  The spring 2011 runways were filled orange but as you can see, it also works […]

Runway to Room

01 . 13 . 11

I don’t normally do runway to room posts but there is something about this spring 2011 design by Diane von Furstenberg that reminds me of this gorgeous room by Olivier Gagnère.  Orange and purple is such an unusual color combination but in both cases it seems to work.  C’est magnafique!

Green is Good

01 . 10 . 11

I thought it was interesting that Pantone chose Honeysuckle, a pink shade, as their Color of the Year for 2011.  The color that keeps catching my attention in both fashion and design is green.  It ranges from peacock to emerald but looks elegant and interesting in every shade.  I already bought a satin envelope clutch […]

Those who were not lucky enough to be invited to the presentation of Tom Ford‘s spring 2011 women’s collection can finally see what we missed thanks to Vogue.  The ensembles were presented by a coterie of Mr. Ford’s friends who included models, singers, actresses and others.  Their ages, 22-67, and body types varied from bootylicious […]

I’m off to an early drapery installation but I’m leaving you with a sneak peek at the Spring 2011 looks from J.Crew.  Big thanks to new President Jenna Lyons and the head of Women’s Design Marissa Webb for putting on a fabulous show.  I’ve already picked out what I am dying to wear so let […]

Another show I attended during fashion week with pretty and colorful fashions was Nanette Lepore.  It was very reminiscent of her home in the West Village which is also very colorful and at times a little whimsical.  You can tell Nanette is a designer who doesn’t take fashion or herself so seriously.  Sometimes you just want to […]

One of the most fun shows I attended during fashion week was Tory Burch.  It was another presentation where the models stand on the raised platform and like Chris Benz, it got a little crazy after the celebrities arrived. (Yes, I was standing behind Kayne West!) As you all know, orange is my favorite color and there was […]

The best fashions are often found off the runway during fashion week.   It’s interesting and inspiring to watch what the editors and buyers are wearing to the tents.  One of the those with a very chic personal style is Harper’s Bazaar Senior Fashion Market Editor Joanna Hillman.  I saw her during resort and a few times this […]

So I went to the Chris Benz spring 2011 presentation yesterday and a reality television show broke out.  I’m teasing but only slightly.  Presentations are different from fashion shows in that the models stand on raised platforms and the guests walk past them to admire the clothes.  That is, if you can see them behind […]

I’m happy to see that the 1970’s are still inspiring designers for Spring 2011 including Derek Lam.  His show was clean and beautiful in the best possible sense. I loved the longer hemlines and classic American sportswear look.  His fabulous white dresses would look amazing paired with a chunky necklace or big cuff bracelets.  I […]

The weather in New York has just turned cool enough to start wearing fall clothes but the runway at fashion week is all about spring.  One of my favorite shows from Day 2 was Jason Wu.  He’s the darling of the fashion world and by the look of this collection, rightly so.  I love the tailored […]

Yesterday was the first day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at the new Lincoln Center location and it could not have been more exciting!  The new venue is much larger than the tents at Bryant Park and much more elegant.  One of the most fashionable rooms this year is the Mercedes-Benz Star Lounge.  It’s where the beautiful […]
