Color Me TOD’S

Color Me TOD’S

TOD’s SS 2013 did well to create their own Wheel of Fortune.  They pretty much nailed every color in the rainbow allowing each and every person to fall in love with at least one pair. And just in case you need something a tad bit more sparkly, they created a special collection filled with limited(…)

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(…)

Good As Gold

Good As Gold

Lucky for the weather, most of the clothing I had packed for my 3 week marathon suited me well.  I was able to combine, layer and play a bit more than if the weather was either too hot or too cold. Tones of golds, greens and blacks creates one of my favorite color palates so(…)

Milan Fashion Week Wrap Up SS 2013

Milan Fashion Week Wrap Up SS 2013

Completely off the topic BUT… Yes there has been a hurricane in New York which has affected my everyday life.  Luckily there was no flooding or damage done to my apartment in the West Village BUT I attempted to go without any electric and phone service and that lasted approximately 24 hours.  I have now(…)

The Legend – Bill Cunningham

The Legend – Bill Cunningham

“We all get dressed for Bill” – so perfectly stated by Anna Wintour.  Bill Cunningham – a legend or rather an icon for his photography for the NY Times – is more present than ever. In a swarm of photographers inside and outside of shows, Bill Cunningham just has this energy to him.  He never(…)

Georgia Hardinge Camouflage

Georgia Hardinge Camouflage

Far from camouflage, when I think of Roberto Cavalli I think of elongated and flowy fabrics.  Therefore when I was in Milano for his sfilata di moda, I chose to wear this graphic print number by my go-to designer for the season – Ms. Georgia Hardinge. Roberto always shows at Il Arco Della Pace which has(…)

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. A man who combines sporty and luxury effortlessly.  He is iconic in his own right.  I have yet to find another designer that can duplicate his genius. Click on the following link for my piece(…)

Painting Milano Red

Painting Milano Red

Well I might have not painted Milan ‘red’ but I sure did make my way around town in this number going from show to show. I started the day in my leopard pony hair Louboutins, but later switched into my Alexander McQueen horn heels before the Prada show because my feet were in so. much.(…)

Sergio Rossi Spring/Summer 2013

Sergio Rossi Spring/Summer 2013

There is always something wonderful about walking into a room and being hit with something unexpected.  That is exactly what happened when I entered into the presentation of Sergio Rossi’s Spring/Summer 2013 Collection during Milan Fashion Week. It was tribal meets colorful metallics meets S&M and it made me very… very… happy.  I appreciate Sergio(…)

Le Grande Palais

Le Grande Palais

Another day in Paris, another day of shows.  Luckily I have my partner, Erica Pelosini, to run around town in what we feel is parfait for the rainy weather. Usually there is a défilé de mode at the beautiful Grand Palais and the photographers are on watch for the latest trends.  On this day in particular(…)
