If it Ain’t Over the Knee…

If it Ain’t Over the Knee…

  … I don’t want to see it. Call it a fad, a minute obsession, a “girl and her shoes” type of infatuation, but honestly I don’t care.  It’s all I want to wrap my “Big Apple” shellac’d toes in at the moment. Over-the-knee boots, in my humble opinion, are a fresh way to accessorize(…)

Couture season is about to kick off in Paris and Fall 2014 Ready to Wear shows begin in T minus 27 days.  So you can imagine that besides for amping up my fashion week travel arrangements as well as gathering fresh pens & notebooks for my reviews, the other lingering thought in my brain is…(…)

Ruffled Feathers

Ruffled Feathers

I wanted to wear feathers, but the question remained – “How can I pull it off without looking too girly?”  I found the answer. In my continuation of looks during Paris Fashion Week, I woke up bright and early for the Roland Mouret show (where in the past I always seemed to arrive late, it(…)

Highlights from Paris Fashion Week SS13

Better ridiculously late than never… At least that is what I say. Time has been escaping me and before I knew it, it’s November and I still haven’t gotten to my PARIS FW Wrap up.  So here we go! Of course I love all the fashion weeks, but there is just something about Paris.  Granted(…)

Here Comes the Rain Again…

Here Comes the Rain Again…

Balenciaga… Jason Wu…. After a storm with a little bit of Annie Lennox in my ear – I couldn’t think of a better setting. The look:  Dress by Balenciaga, Heels by Jason Wu, Hematite Cuffs were a special present (I recommend the Celine Manchette Cuff, but for a better deal try these from Asos), Vintage Rings and Black Pearl(…)

Breakfast at Tom Ford’s

Breakfast at Tom Ford’s

Do you ever ask yourself this: If Audrey Hepburn were to step out into modern day and ditch her old school “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” – 1. What would be her new, coveted luxury brand?  2. What would she be nibbling on? and 3. What would she be wearing? The thought hit me like a ton(…)

Memorial Day

Memorial Day

Ah Memorial Day – A day to to hang out with family & friends, fire up a BBQ and wallow in the sun. In preparation for my Memorial Day celebration, I decided to hit up the local farmer’s market for some fresh produce and flowers.  What I didn’t expect was to take a seat for(…)

Courrèges for Ahalife

Courrèges for Ahalife

A momentous day sprung upon us last week in the fashion industry.  One of my favorite luxury  e-comm sites, Ahalife, paid homage to thee fashion icon of  the 1960’s – André Courrèges. So who is André Courrèges you ask?  Besides for holding an apprenticeship with Balenciaga for 10 years, claiming fame for the invention of the miniskirt as well as(…)

Fire Escape Artist

Fire Escape Artist

There is something about being inspired by our environments and their trademarks.  In New York, one of the most common architectural trademarks is the fire escape.  And in this town, we used them for anything and everything except for their intended purpose – to escape fires! So here is Thai and I are giving yet(…)
