Laptop Chalkboard: Low Tech, High Style

We all need some down time once in a while, especially our tots. But entice them with this chalkboard made to look like a laptop and they will find their imagination blossoming. My tots have been nagging me for an iPad and I refuse on principle – we have one iPad the entire family shares, […]

Lanvin Lucite Wedge Sandal: Perspex Princess

Leave the glass slipper behind. A lucite heel is the real secret to walking on air. Perspex shoes continue to trend with designers, and with a little confidence (as all trend-setters must have), the totally transparent style is easier than ever to pull off.

Belstaff Spring Clutches: Heavy Metal

My favorite way to wear Belstaff leather jackets? Unexpectedly…with formal dresses!

Cautionary Tale of a Torn Labrum: Out of Reach

What happens every time you get in the car with your tots? They ask for something and you reach back and give it to them or take something from them. This goes on non-stop the entire car ride, which could be hundreds of times. I started developing a strange shoulder pain where with certain reaching […]

Jeffrey Fashion Cares Kickoff: Caring For Others

On Tuesday evening, I had the distinct privilege of attending the kickoff of the 10th anniversary of Jeffrey Fashion Cares, a wonderful annual fashion fundraiser benefitting the LGBT community at large, and those who deal with the daily struggles of HIV and AIDS. Held at the Jeffrey boutique on 14th Street in the Meatpacking District, […]

I never refuse a good party, especially on Twitter! Kenneth Cole is hosting a Twitter party with Bryan Boy and me tomorrow to celebrate his return to the runway after a long absence.
