Every morning, I’m afraid to turn on the news or look at Twitter. I feel depressed and helpless and unsure of the world. I don’t know what to do except give you a place to escape if you feel the same. Besides the Autumn poets sing A few prosaic days A little this side of […]

Tomorrow is the first day of autumn although it feels like summer is not giving up without a fight in New York. Everyone I know is looking forward to crisp weather, changing leaves, apple picking, and cozy sweaters. Here’s a little autumn inspiration to get you in the mood for fall.

Camel Coat Collection

10 . 15 . 15

The temperature has dropped and the heat has come on in my apartment building so that means it’s time to open up the coat closet. Camel coats are perfect for this time of year because they look lighter than most dark colored coats and they coordinate with almost every color. Camel looks great with white, […]

After this hot and sweaty summer, I’ve never been more ready for fall fashions and good hair weather. I can’t wait to wear cashmere and coats and sweaters and layers. The first place I’m starting my shopping is Emerson Fry whose first collection for autumn has just debuted online. The Drop Shoulder Coat in Camel is […]

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 […]

This fashion month might be the best yet for street style.  There seem to be less crazy costumes and more real life ensembles. I love that many editors and buyers are wearing denim since that’s my daily uniform. I’m also seeing a lot of army green, in addition to camel and black. If you’re at a loss […]

My favorite seasonal quote is the one from The Great Gatsby below, “life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.” While autumn doesn’t officially start until next week, it has gotten crisp in New York. Not only is everyone happy to no longer be sweating but they are also happy to […]

Shifting into Neutral

07 . 21 . 14

I don’t wear a lot of color to begin with but this time of year always makes me want to start shifting into neutrals in preparation of autumn.  Here’s a little inspiration to help you get in the mood too.  Photo of Paris by me.  Saint Laurent Sac Université Shoulder Bag Daria Werbowy for Mango.  […]

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 […]

True Luxury

03 . 05 . 14

The word luxury is bandied about so much that it’s started to lose its meaning.  If there is one house that still typifies the word luxury, it’s Hermès.  It’s also synonymous with quality and craftsmanship.  While the Birkin bag may now be ubiquitous, the clothing will always hold down the fort on quiet yet interesting designs. Hermès unveiled […]

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 […]

Down the Rabbit Hole

10 . 07 . 13

I much prefer using tumblr on my iPhone to the computer.  It’s so easy to scroll down and repost images that it really is akin to falling down the rabbit hole.  This happened last evening and when I looked at the photos I had reposted, they had made a perfectly color coordinated post.  Enjoy.  Hermes […]
