Top Fortunate Finds: It’s Your Lucky Day

In honor of Friday the 13th – or in spite of, rather – I think we should invite some items into our wardrobe that are believed to ward off evil. From fiery red to Irish green to symbols off of horses, birds, and wild animals, I’m feeling positive energy abounding. With the right piece of […]

Steal the Look: Ashley Olsen Does Denim to Go

An unembellished denim shirt, nonchalantly buttoned and rumpled at the sleeves, tucked into black skinnies is such a chic alternative to a T-shirt and jeans. And just as classic. At first, I wasn’t sure if this is MK or Ashley (the bedhead hair said Mary-Kate, while the button-down style read Ashley) and either way, the […]

Show Me the Marni: One-Track Mind

It’s an old – and often rightly spoken – fashion rule to avoid wearing a single designer from head to toe (the one exception being when you’re sitting front row at that designer’s show). But when it comes to Marni, this law, along with a handful of others, flies out the window. Someone needs to […]

Killer Shades: Chanel Prestige Cat Eye

It was 60-something degrees here this past Saturday, which for November in New York City is nothing short of insane, but there was no complaining from my end! I got the above Chanel Prestige shades ($550 at Sunglass Hut), a few weeks ago and have been so madly in love with them that I’ve literally […]

Steal the Look: Dita Von Teese is Fresh as a Daisy

While so many girls succumb to the rut of cut-offs and tank tops by the time August roles around, the lovely Dita Von Teese is here to show us how summer dressing is really done. A throwback to a more polished era, right down to the porcelain skin and dagger-like reverse French red manicure, she’s […]

Madonna in Yves Saint Laurent Sunglasses: Shady Behavior

It’s always risky business when it comes to Madge. You never quite know what you’re going to get! While the rest of her accessories confuse the eye – too busy-busy – her Yves Saint Laurent sunglasses are bold and flattering. This pair of cat-eye frames, out of their Spring/Summer 2011 collection, boast a harder edge […]

L’Agence Floral-Print Silk-Chiffon Tea Dress and Printed Maxi Dress: Splendor in the Grass

There is nothing like a strong woman in a gentle dress. Soft on the eyes and even softer to the touch, these L’Agence dresses are more fairy tale romance than Laura Ashley florals. The conservative tea dress cut, with mellow gathering at the sleeves and a below-the-knee cut, is so old-fashioned it’s thoroughly modern. Or […]

Gucci Oversized-frame Acetate Sunglasses

New bathing suit, cover-up kaftan and hat. The only thing missing is a new pair of sunglasses. Now I can also check that off. These super big sunglasses is just what you need under that wide brimmed hat. I’m loving the blue and black abstract stripes, a bit 80′s retro. Reminds me of those Laura […]

Snob Look of the Week: Out to Brunch Snob

Ah, the simple pleasures of the weekend brunch: Mimosas and Bloody Marys, omelettes on the menu after two o’clock, and a chunk of true leisure time with friends or family. But my favorite part about going out to brunch? Getting dressed for it, naturally. The snob’s recipe for the perfect off-day afternoon ensemble consists of […]
