Top 5 Checks: Get Checked

Check marks the spot! It’s crazy what a few finely placed lines can do to your wardrobe. This is minimalist design with maximum effect, and a timeless one at that. The print on that black and white Balenciaga? It was inspired by one of Cristóbal’s archival prints.

New York Fashion Week Roundup, Part 2

New York Fashion Week Roundup, Part 2: Anna Sui, Jeremy Scott, and Rodarte

I have loved Anna Sui since I was a kid in the ‘80s. At the time, there were no other Asians in fashion for me to look up to; naturally, I copied her signature bold red lipstick and her thick swipe of black eyeliner (still do!). This woman hasn’t stopped encouraging individuality and celebrity uniqueness since back then.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2015 Collection

Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2015 Collection: Join the Club

This is Marc’s house, and no two ladies know it better than the duo currently at the little-sister line’s helm, Luella Bartley and Katie Hillier. While they’re currently heading up the design team (and doing an excellent job of it), that doesn’t mean Marc isn’t here in spirit. Or in actuality, as a matter of fact.

Ann Taylor Signature Tote

Ann Taylor Signature Tote: The Search is Over

The search for the perfect day-to-night tote is about as easy as the search for Prince Charming. It takes years! I waded through quite the sea of frogs (or shapeless black totes, if you will) before stumbling upon Ann Taylor’s Signature tote. They sent me a sample to play with, and I almost didn’t mail it back!

Tory Burch Spring 2015 Collection

Tory Burch Spring 2015 Collection: The Beautiful Lightness of Being Tory Burch

Tory, take me away! This year, American girl Tory Burch is straying from her favorite Hamptons haunts and taking equally relaxing though far more exotic trips to Vallauris, Provence and quiet Paris in the summertime; the Central American coast; and breezy Spanish beaches.

Valextra Weekend Hobo

Valextra Weekend Hobo: Practically Perfect

I love my Valextra Namaste. It’s one of my all-time favorite bags for the ease, accommodating design, and, of course, the gorgeous construction. But I may have a new favorite from the brand that Tina and I call the Italian Hermès!

3.1 Phillip Lim Spring 2015 Collection

3.1 Phillip Lim Spring 2015 Collection: Bedroom Eyes

Phillip Lim has been trapped in his bedroom for almost a year, due to a lengthy apartment renovation. But the really creative aren’t ever really trapped anywhere, and Phillip is one of those boundless, broad-thinking few.
