Zara Leather Jackets: Red, White, and Biker

Zara is a fashion editor favorite because unlike so many other brands in this price range, the Spanish company doesn’t knock off other brands. Dozens of designers work in Zara’s studios to come up with fresh looks each season, and the resulting quality/price combo can’t be beat! My friend Aliza, a,k.a. DKNY PR Girl recently […]

Bright Leather Jackets: Pink Ladies

Pink jackets should have been huge in the ‘80s. It’s never too late to start the trend, though! Black will always be cool, but you don’t want to get stuck in a rut. So this spring, take the biker staple and give it a fresh coat of paint – pink paint! Balenciaga’s coral number (on […]

Brunello Cucinelli Ivory Knot Necklace: The Great White Way

I’ve been hooked on Brunello Cucinelli since my very first purchase (a short sleeve cashmere blend coat with fox fur cuffs at the ends of the sleeves – doesn’t get more perfect for Southern California living). His jewelry is equally addicting. The aesthetic is soft and elegant, but there’s always a spectacular aspect that makes […]

DKNY Fall 2013 Collection: Juxta-Posed

DKNY’s Fall collection, named “Juxta-Posed” by Donna, was chock full of wearable looks with definite edge – for the rock and roll New Yorker. Bulky coats (truly an essential for NYC natives who have to brave these cold and windy streets) and quilted bombers dominated.

Eddie Borgo Stingray-Effect Jewelry Box: Organized Chaos

Keeping my jewelry organized is like a part-time job. I have pieces on my dresser, others on my vanity, some in a display case, and even more sprinkled around the house (I can’t type with large rings on, so I have a collection of them hanging around my desk). This punk rock Eddie Borgo jewelry […]

Trending on Bows: Take a Bow

I wore a perforated leather bow tie on a chain to the Luisaviaroma Black and White Party, but it doesn’t have to be formal, not in the least. I can’t wait to wear it with a tee shirt and skirt! Whether you’re wrapping your hair up in satin ribbons or cinching your skirt together, bows […]

Fiona Paxton Coco Yasuko Necklaces: Native Neon

I’m in a tribal mood. With beads and braided leather, Fiona Paxton’s statement necklaces are just what I have in mind. The London-based designer has only been around for a few years, but she already has a great portfolio of bulky, boho pieces that are globally inspired (she credits Indian artisanship, the British punk era, […]

Top 5 Clobbering Cuffs: Cuff Linking

Get stacking with these crazy, clobbering cuffs. I love wearing one gigantic bracelet and pairing it with smaller jewels, and if I’m not in the mood for that, one of these statement cuffs can more than do the job on it’s own. It’s best to have a distinguishing piece to start with, and then build […]

Fallon Best Friend Collection: Pup Snob Necklaces

I was thinking about what to get my pup Yoshi for the holidays (everyone in the family deserves a special gift!) when I came across Fallon’s Best Friend Collection. I’m a huge fan of Fenton Fallon’s jewels, so outfitting him in Dana Lorenz’s eclectic creations only makes sense. The quality is beyond compare – warm, […]
