Let it Snow in Milan

Let it Snow in Milan

It has been raining and snowing the entire Milan Fashion Week – pretty much turning everyone off.  Well almost everyone… I couldn’t help it.  Just before I left New York, I found this adorable Felix Rey Kissy Face umbrella and all I could think about was strolling in and out of fashion shows with this(…)

The Lady Pump is Back!

The Lady Pump is Back!

I said it way back when I wrote my article for Olivia Palermo on Gianvito Rossi… and I will say it again… Say ‘Goodbye’ to the platform and ‘Hello’ to the Lady Pump. It was a rather lovely time gaining inches with those platforms, but to be honest I am extremely pleased to have femininity, modernity, and(…)

Aquazzura for Olivia Palermo

In the jungle, the oh-so-mighty jungle, a kaleidoscope of exotic-skinned animals sleep tonight.  Albeit the pythons may be cerulean blue, poppy red, and chiquita banana yellow, but in the wild land of the shoe obsessed, it’s as if the gods have answered our prayers.

Fancy Pants for Olivia Palermo

Fancy Pants for Olivia Palermo

Tis’ the season to be Fancy!  It seems the word “fancy” is always rolling off our tongues when the holidays roll around.  You may fancy a little bit of this or a little bit of that, but what you should really be fancying is a pair of “fancy pants.” Now we aren’t just talking about(…)

Olympia Le Tan for Olivia Palermo

Olympia Le Tan for Olivia Palermo

Pick a cover any cover.  Perhaps you are an avid reader and novels such as ‘The Catcher in the Rye’ and ‘Doctor Zhivago’ tickle your fancy.  Yet, what should be your library has become a makeshift accessories closet lining your ‘bookshelves’ with adorned handbags and clutches instead.  Yes, we all understand.  It happens to the(…)

Brunello Cucinelli for Olivia Palermo

Brunello Cucinelli for Olivia Palermo

While in Milano, I was able to interview yet another one of my favorite fashion designers – Signore Brunello Cucinelli.
