New Year’s Eve in New York City is fraught with peril due to a lack of taxis and Uber surge pricing. Sometimes it’s just easier to stay in with a few friends than brave the crowds out on the town.  But then you don’t get to buy a fun party dress and fancy accessories.  Here […]

One person who I think wears black well and makes minimalism look interesting is street style favorite Isabelle Kountoure. She is an editor with a German and Greek background who has great personal style. Her shorter hair cut is something I may also have to show my stylist. I’m flying back to NYC today, so […]

Fade to Black

10 . 06 . 15

As the weather cools down and the rain returns, I find myself reaching for anything black in my closet. It’s the color that many wear in Milan which is where I’m returning today so in that honor, I give you a compilation of the absence of color.

A fair amount of outfit planning went into this trip to Paris.  I needed to pack a lot of pieces that would work with different outfits but also be chic for fashion week. While I will be showing you some of my actual outfits tomorrow, these are some of the looks that inspired me. I’m sticking […]

Black Friday 2014

11 . 28 . 14

Why anyone would want to go to a big box retailer and possibly get punched in the face for a discounted flat screen tv is beyond me but to each his own. Although, I’m pretty sure there have been some fancy lady fist fights over discounted shoes at the sales at Barneys and Bergdorfs. Black […]

Fashion Week Flash

09 . 05 . 14

It’s only Day 2 of New York Fashion Week but we’ve already seen a lot of great looks.  It’s so hot and steamy in the city right now that I wish I could wear most of them right now.  A white dress should be at the top of your shopping list for Spring 2015 but […]

Even though it’s supposed to be 90 degrees in New York tomorrow, I’m shopping the fall collection that just debuted on Emerson Fry. It’s filled with cozy sweaters and chic coats as well a few pairs of lust worthy shoes and boots. Just as lovely as the clothes is the home in which they shoot […]

If you have been wondering why my posts have been going up late if at all, it’s because in between working on projects, I’ve been making countless visits to the tailor and cobbler in preparation for my summer sojourn in Paris. Packing for four months is infinitely harder than packing for a week or two. […]

Now that I have the dates of my summer sojourn to Paris planned, I’m already thinking about what I am going to pack. I will be away for four months and will have to be prepared for a temperature fluctuation from around 50 degrees to possibly 80 degrees or more, especially as I travel to […]

The Boss of Wu

02 . 13 . 14

You could tell something was up at the Hugo Boss by Jason Wu show today based on the front row. Diane Kruger, Reese Witherspoon, and Gwyneth Paltrow (photo by @bagsnob) were just down the row from Gerard Butler and Scott Eastwood.  The clothes that came down the runway won’t just appeal to celebrities though. They […]

Black Friday

11 . 29 . 13

While you all are braving Black Friday at stores in America, I will be traveling back to Paris from London.  I wish you lots of bargains, a good parking spot, and Godspeed. In honor of the day, I’ve put together another ode to black. Cheers!   all images via tumblr

I’ve been putting street style photos of Giorgia Tordini in my personal style inspiration folder and on the blog for a while without knowing her name. It was a comment on a post on The Sartorialist that led me to discover that Giorgia is Italian, a fashion stylist, a contributor to Grazia.it (where she’s often photographed […]
