True Gault pop up shop in NYC

Custom Shoes Pop Up Shop NYC

Are you wondering what happens at a True Gault custom shoe scanning party? I first went to one a few years ago and it’s been exciting to see how the company has advanced their technology. At the first party they had dozens of shoes that you would try on for fit. That is now not necessary. You [...]

In a perfect style world

Runway-vs-reality

Last week I heard about Gap closing 175 of their stores and inside I did a silent happy dance. Why would I celebrate the demise of a huge clothing giant? Because for years now as a personal stylist I have been tired of the same ol’ same ol’ safe styles they churn out every season. [...]

Nomad in style?

closet-clarity-decluttering

I’m a big fan of the Sunday Styles Section in the New York Times. This weekend I read an article that I can’t get out of my head. It’s about Fabrice Grinda who, approaching 40 years old and despite being worth approximately 100 million dollars, decided to give up his lavish estate (including a butler) [...]

Vetted: luggage

Tumi-carry-on-luggage

Less is more: how much do you really need?

long-white-dress

I’ve spoken about the less-is-more concept before on my blog here and here. This spring I’ve become even more aware of how little of our stuff we actually need. Do I really need 6 different pots? Nope, just 2 perfect sized pots. And wooden spoons? How many things do I really cook at once? Oh and [...]

Getting to the bottom of why we only wear 20% of our closets

Marie-Kondo-folding-technique

Despite being a stylist I’ve never been much of a perfect folder. I never worked in retail where I had to perfect the perfect t-shirt fold. My own closets are reasonably organized but not anal. I’ve always wanted prettier, more perfect closets but haven’t invested the time or money. I’ve aspired to have my closet look [...]
