Enjoy!

Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic 2011
Governor’s Island was ‘flash mobbed’ by the chic set. I suspect marketing heavily promoted this event because LITERALLY every person cool in nyc under 45 who I know via facebook/life was invited and talking about the polo event. A true swarm check-in on 4square. The ferry line experience was an event in itself. Never in […]

7 considerations BEFORE hiring a personal stylist
1. What are they wearing? Are they modeling a unique personal style? Do they look well put together? They don’t have to need the SAME taste as you want but they should be practicing what they preach. 2. Can you afford to work with a wardrobe consultant on top of your budget for purchasing clothing? […]

Fuchsia is my fashion blind spot
My Mother tells the horrifying story of me as a child in Macy’s being drawn to the neon pink cinquera dresses (I’m from wasp descendants). She couldn’t imagine why her child could be attracted to something so OTT (over the top) and BRIGHTLY tacky. Nice girls wore tailored classics which were buttoned up and ‘proper’ […]

Old friends~past look
Recently, I went to dinner with a friend whom I hadn’t seen since I lived in Boston twelve years ago. In honor of the quasi-reunion, I found myself reaching for a skirt that I was considering giving away. A long sweeping white dramatic and heavy skirt from Calypso – it grazes the ground even with […]

Tulips and Pansies-a headdress affair
What an OTT event at the gorgeous Gotham Hall to get in the mood for Spring. It reminded me of the New York I imagined before moving here in 2001. Produced by Village Care. Hosted by Kelly Cutrone, Fern MalIis, and Ariana Rockefeller-one of my most fabulous friends who is launching her own clothing line. […]

Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty MET
Alexander McQueen’s Savage Beauty exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art is a smash success! And you should RUN not walk to see. But plan your visit carefully because it’s the most packed fashion show I’ve ever seen and we went first thing on a Tuesday morning. It was almost like being in a disco […]

How I approach my business
When a customer calls a reputable dog breeder and the first question out of their mouth is, “How much are your dogs?” they will most likely refuse to sell that person the dog. Why? Because they want to place their dogs in the best homes possible – not with a person who wants a ”deal” […]

Party where you’re at (style wise)
Oftentimes, I have a client who doesn’t want to wear a certain type of clothing because he or she wants to hide something – sagging arms, belly pooch, varicose veins, stretch marks, etc. I’m happy to facilitate clients being comfortable and working around their issues, but my response is always the same: “party where you’re […]

Stylish Art Picks at AAF
I’m a big fan of art fairs in general but AAF is one of my favorites because it is so well curated and digestible. It’s never so large that you can’t walk it in a hour-not like the marathon like experience of art at the Piers or Armory Show. And with art priced from $100-$10,000 […]
