It’s my anniversary on today, and my hubby and I are going to Vegas to properly celebrate! When you’re in Sin City you’re competing for attention against thousands of dazzling lights, and you want to shine brighter than all of them. But I do Vegas tastefully (as oxy-moronic as that sounds, but it’s important to […]

Steal This Look: Rachel Zoe

Warning: New Moms, don’t try this at home! It takes a seasoned fashion veteran like Rachel Zoe to navigate the streets of West Hollywood in 6” heels AND carry her adorable son, Skyler. I did it on occasion when my son was still under 25 pounds, but once I stepped on uneven sidewalk and almost […]

Best of European Resort 2013 Collections: Euro Trip

The European Resort collections: I could liken them to a surprise dessert, brought out on the house at a five-star restaurant. A little unexpected and thoroughly delectable (even though, after numerous courses of seasonal collections, you know you probably don’t need more treats!). This year, I’ve narrowed it down the crème de la crème. Here’s […]

Michael Kors Resort 2013 Collection: She Sells Chic Down by the Seashore

The unstoppable Michael Kors and the season known as Resort go hand-in-hand. If you think about it, whether he’s doing safari-chic or pumped-up minimalist, Kors’ vibe is always a little cruise-inspired.

I love Kate Moss. Have I said that before? One of the many reasons being that, despite access to covetable clothes seasons ahead of time, she doesn’t care about wearing the latest and greatest. Instead, she shakes up what she has in her closet, even if it’s from past seasons. I have the exact same […]
