Best Bikinis: Mix, Match, and Mingle

There are many milestones in a young girl’s life that we could talk about: her first period, her first kiss, her first pair of high heels…but given the proximity to beach season, I’m going with her first bikini. My first “grown-up” bikini (I wore two pieces as a toddler) was a red bandeau.

Kate Spade New York Wicker Car Tote

Kate Spade New York Wicker Car Tote: The Fifth Wheel

What ever happened to good taste? Or at least functionality…? I can’t entirely blame the people at Kate Spade New York for this absurd contraption. I actually fault Charlotte Olympia for paving the way for designers to unleash their tacky sides

St. Patrick’s Day Green Bags: Don’t Get Pinched!

According to legend dating back to Boston in the 1700s, if leprechauns (or your prankster friends) see that you’re not wearing green on March 17th, they’ll pinch you! To avoid unsightly little bruises, I recommend one of the Emerald Isle-hued options below. My husband’s maternal grandfather was 100% happy go lucky Irish, and his spirit has me in the mood to celebrate.
