American Express Points for Presents: December’s Delights

I have used my American Express points to buy multiple cameras, shoes, and, of course, bags from Neiman Marcus and Saks.

Forget the poinsettias. To really get in the festive mood, what you need are red bags! (Okay, maybe only one red bag, even though the idea of a bouquet is tempting…) When you’re dealing with the boldest color in the spectrum, it’s best to go classic and minimal and let the hue do the talking. […]

Getting into Character: The Five Essentials for Victoria Grayson

Victoria Grayson is the villainess of the decade! She came back from the dead – that’s impressive (and thank God – she’s my favorite love to hate character!). On the absolutely addictive Revenge, Madeleine Stowe plays the Queen of the Hamptons to terrifying perfection. Even through the screen, her snarl gives me goose bumps. In spite […]

Getting into Character: The 5 Essentials for Gloria Pritchett

Gloria is one of my all-time favorite characters on TV. I feel a special kinship with her, if merely because I am constantly shouting at my hubby, “I HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS!” If only I had her sexy Colombian accent, too! As Jay’s feisty Latin wife, Gloria loves to have fun, and one of her […]

The Five Essentials Featuring Jane Keltner de Valle:

Jane Keltner de Valle and I only recently met (at my dear friend Bryan Boy‘s ANTM premiere in NYC last month!) but we have known of each other for years (thanks to social media, everyone knows everyone in fashion). Her fresh-faced beauty struck me immediately. Add her enviable height to the elegant equation, and the born-and-bred-New […]
