Karma Chameleon

The proof is in the picture… I mean pudding –  I belong in Paris! At least that is what I like to tell myself especially when my garb reflects the columns of Le Palais Royal.  It’s a sign (and we all know how much I love signs) or perhaps it’s just Balmain blending into the(…)

During Milano Fashion Week, my partner in crime, Erica Pelosini, and I took a break from the shows to wander around Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II and do a little photo shoot of our looks from the day.

In the midst of all the projects I am working on, one required me running around the upper east side of the NYC yesterday. In between perusing vintage clothing and furniture shops, I could not help myself but be taken a back by so many of the pretty lil windows peppering the city.  I knew(…)
