I'm In a New Year's State of Mind

Gearing up for New Year's Eve and 2013, I'm finalizing my "theme" for the year... I'm leaning towards "Simplicity", and getting inspired by the above quote, as well as "Be More With Less" and "Living Simply frees you to Simply Live."  What is your theme for the new year?

I can't get enough of Atlantic Pacific's travel style - the epitome of travel chic! Blair always seems to elevate classic pieces that everyone has in their closet to new heights with the perfect styling, big sunnies (her trademark) and a red lip!

Emmy Style

Looks were all over the place at last night's Emmy awards, with no real Best Dressed in my opinion.  Some looks that were at least interesting were Heidi Klum, Ginnifer Goodwin and Julianne Moore.

Halloween Costume

Already starting to plan my costume...what are you going to dress up as this year?

Just a spoonful of sugar, an umprella and a homemade flower-hat and I've got my costume together! Mary Poppins!

The Always Classic Trench for Fall

Looks like I'll be breaking out my trench again this season, chic as ever!

Fall has arrived!

Finally, after the hottest summer on record, Fall has arrived! Here's to hot cocoa with marshmallows, pumpkin patches, apple picking, halloween costumes, colorful foliage and Fall Fashion!!! To kick off the season I have innagurated my new Kirna Zabete chainlink fall bag! Doesn't it remind you of the classic Chanel 2.55? Yes it does!

Kusama at the Whitney Museum of Art

Well known for her use of dense patterns of polka dots and nets, as well as her intense, large-scale environments, Yayoi Kusama works in a variety of media, including painting, drawing, sculpture, film, performance, and immersive installation. Born in Japan in 1929, Kusama came to the United States in 1957 and quickly found herself at the epicenter of the New York avant-garde. After achieving fame through groundbreaking exhibitions and art “happenings,” she returned to her native country in 1973 and is now one of Japan’s most prominent contemporary artists. This retrospective features works spanning Kusama’s career.  For more information click here

The September Issue

All you fashionistas out there, its that time of year again, the September issues have arrived on newsstands! 

Vogue has outdone itself this year with 916 pages (approx. 2 inches in thickness), features on Lady Gaga, Chelsea Clinton and an interesting style retrospective.  The thing weighs a ton! Well done!  Also must gets are Elle (featuring Katy Perry on the cover and boasting 600+ pages), and Marie Claire featuring Miley Cyrus (style star? I think not) with less page volume but more original content.  And there's always The September Issue (streaming on Netflix), a must-watch to Anna Wintour, the devil herself, and Grace Coddington go at it over the big issue.

Museum Chic - Schiaparelli and Prada



We went to the Met (which, for non-New Yorkers means the Metropolitan Museum of Art) on Saturday to check out a few of the new exhibits.  Primarily though, I wanted to see Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations before it closes August 19.  It did not disappoint.  If you're a fashion fan, check out the exhibit while you can.

The Met's Spring 2012 Costume Institute exhibition, Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations, explores the striking affinities between Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada, two Italian designers from different eras. Inspired by Miguel Covarrubias's "Impossible Interviews" for Vanity Fair in the 1930s, the exhibition features orchestrated conversations between these iconic women to suggest new readings of their most innovative work. Iconic ensembles are presented with videos of simulated conversations between Schiaparelli and Prada directed by Baz Luhrmann, focusing on how both women explore similar themes in their work through very different approaches.

Like everybody else these days, I've become totally obsessed with taking instagrams. A coffee in the park, walk home from work, and a Manhattan street fair all elevated to high style with the click of a button.
