How to be warm and chic when it’s freezing
By | January 1st, 2016

Chic when it’s cold? I’m happily missing this weeks cold by spending the winter out west… Yes, I suffer from California-ism – the desire to be warm all the time.  Don’t hate me…you can join too. I have learned that, to actually get outside when it’s freezing, I need to have cozy chic duds to inspire […]

WHAT TO WEAR IN A HEAT WAVE
By | July 15th, 2015

“It’s getting hot in here. I wanna take off all my clothes.” With over 100 degree temperatures in NYC, the clothing-optional water junkies at Harbin are sounding kinda smart right about now.

True Gault pop up shop in NYC
By | June 30th, 2015

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
By | June 23rd, 2015

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. […]

Vetted: luggage
By | June 2nd, 2015

Can we talk about greatness? Tumi greatness? I’m not the one to talk a lot of companies up. I’m not an editorial site and have never wanted paid advertisers. But as a big world traveler I know how beat up luggage gets. My Tumi super leger softpack carry-on got so much use from using it like […]

By | May 27th, 2015

I’m sure by now you may have heard about the recent controversy at Cannes about a handful of women in their 50’s being turned away from the film festival ‘black tie’ festivities for wearing flats instead of heels.

Out with the old – in with the new
By | May 19th, 2015

Last week I mourned the loss of two gems here in New York. Both are included in my next book –  Vetted by a Stylist, which features NYC’s finest style spots. They are Magnolia Organic day spa and Fragments multi jewelry shop in Soho. I had been getting my organic facials at tiny/cozy Magnolia since […]

By | April 15th, 2015

Spring is a time for rebirth, change, and more color! We come out of our winter hibernation and spring cleaning feels natural. As humans it’s easier and healthier for us to live harmonious with the seasons and that’s why you should never do a full juice cleanse in winter…yep those juice places never tell you […]

SAVE or SPLURGE
By | April 14th, 2015

SAVE VS SPLURGE As a stylist I’ve seen the donation piles of many women. So here is my breakdown on what merits your investment. SAVE YOUR MONEY AND DON’T SPEND MEGA BUCKS ON: • Full-length gowns – unless you are a celebrity, the chance of getting multiple wears is slim. You’re better off renting from […]
