3.1 Phillip Lim Leopard-Printed Leather: Welcome to the Jungle

I’m more than ready to follow Phillip Lim into the jungle with his chic leopard-printed leather collection. As if the cat’s spots weren’t fierce enough, he’s now transferred them onto fall-friendly leather. Pick and choose what you love, but remember – the laws of the jungle dictate that if you go too far with the … Continue reading “3.1 Phillip Lim Leopard-Printed Leather: Welcome to the Jungle”


Clemmie Watson Leather Stud Cape

For those who are proud of their breasts, Clemmie Watson’s leather stud cape is the perfect piece to showcase them without actually showing them. Whether it’s a pair of chandelier earrings, a statement necklace, or some shoulder pads, Clemmie’s style is all about draping and accentuating (and her tongue-in-cheek sense of humor). She hand makes … Continue reading “Clemmie Watson Leather Stud Cape”

Wonder Woman Cuffs

Wonder Woman Cuffs: Superhero-Sized

The season of superhero blockbusters is in full swing, but the best of all is missing from the pack – Wonder Woman. I’m truly obsessed with her (my sister and Tina even had me dress as WW for my bachelorette party in Vegas!!), so in honor my missing in action heroine, I’m arming my summer … Continue reading “Wonder Woman Cuffs: Superhero-Sized”


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 … Continue reading “Bright Leather Jackets: Pink Ladies”


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 … Continue reading “Brunello Cucinelli Ivory Knot Necklace: The Great White Way”


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 … Continue reading “Eddie Borgo Stingray-Effect Jewelry Box: Organized Chaos”


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 … Continue reading “Trending on Bows: Take a Bow”
