My love of Phillip Lim‘s work is no secret and not only does the spring collection go on sale today but they have released a fascinating video of the making of the finale dress. I was deeply inspired by the Picasso exhibition at the Gagosian gallery last year and it was exciting to hear that […]

Prada Print Collection

05 . 17 . 10

My flower obsession continues with the new Prada Prints Collection! Remember when Carrie exclaimed “Hello Lover” in reference to some shows in a store window on Sex and the City? Well, that’s what I thought when I saw this fabulous collection! The floral and print fabrics are from the Prada archives and the silhouettes were […]

Yesterday was Mr. Valentino’s birthday and of all the wonderful cities in the world he could have chose to spend it, he picked New York. I bet that was an amazing event! In honor of his special day, I’m posting some of my favorite images of the designer and his fashions. At 78, he looks […]

Her Mother’s Clothes

05 . 09 . 10

I’ve been seeing this book My Mother’s Clothes for a while but didn’t know what it was about until today. The timing couldn’t have been more perfect than the day before mother’s day since it’s about the author’s mother. More specifically, as the title suggests, her mother’s clothes, but the reason behind it so heartwarming. […]

Met Ball Best Dressed

05 . 04 . 10

The Met Ball red carpet is actually better than the red carpet at the Oscars and I wish that the E! network would report live so we could see all the fabulosity unfold. Reading all the tweets was fun but definitely not the same! These are those that I deem best dressed including O and […]

Stripe It Rich

04 . 20 . 10

Striped cotton shirts have been around forever but you know that they are seriously hot again when both US Weekly and Vogue devote entire pages to them within weeks of each other. What was funny about the page in Vogue was that it included Pablo Picasso but not Coco Chanel. It is my understanding, after […]

I might have to step up my husband hunt since J.Crew is set to open a special wedding boutique in my neighborhood! The atelier at 769 Madison Avenue at 66th Street will officially debut on May 27th. I just hope there isn’t a wedding gown stampede like the one at Filene’s Basement!

If you liked the men’s fall 2010 fashions at J.Crew, you’re going to love the women’s fall 2010 looks! It’s a lot of luxe in the form of sequins, jewels and feathers, mixed with the wools and tweeds you expect for fall. There are a lot of tone on tone color combinations like amber, brown […]

When I was asked if I would like to attend the private preview of J.Crew‘s fall collections, you know that my answer was an emphatic yes! As much as I wanted to see what I will be buying from J.Crew this fall (we’ll get to that in the next post), I was more excited to […]

California Casual Chic

03 . 03 . 10

I’ve already been warned by numerous friends that I’m going to have to tone it down a notch or two (or maybe 10!) when it comes to my outfits for LA. It’s a much more casual city than New York so jeans are appropriate everywhere and heels are almost never worn during the day. I […]

Speaking of Anna

02 . 26 . 10

That picture of Anna Wintour in the snow had me thinking about her style. She has clearly found what works for her and each outfit is a variation on that theme. She usually wears a suit or a dress that is either slim or has a nipped in waist. Sometimes it’s a little sweater and […]

Erin in Paris

02 . 19 . 10

I’m beginning to think it’s a prerequisite for chic fashion designers to own fabulous flats in Paris. Or maybe living in the city of lights is what inspires them to create swoon worthy outfits every season. Erin Fetherston, like Marc Jacobs, has an apartment that I would love to live in. But I guess I’ll […]

Falling for Fetherston

02 . 18 . 10

One of my favorite collections from fashion week was definitely Erin Fetherston. There have been more times than I can count that I have had to pass on buying a dress because a designer decided to save a few dollars on fabric with a thigh high hemline but Erin has dropped hers to ladylike levels […]

Vintage MJ in Paris

02 . 17 . 10

Another review of the Fall 2010 collection by Marc Jacobs called it nostalgic. Which immediately made me nostalgic for Marc’s first Paris apartment that was also designed by Paul Fortune. Since I have no idea where my tear sheets for it have been filed, I was happy to find that Moodboard had scanned and posted […]

MJ in Paris

02 . 17 . 10

Marc Jacobs is getting rave reviews for his collection show Monday night. Some said it was serene while others accused it of being safe but sometimes you just want to look pretty and nice and not over the top, kind of like Marc’s Paris apartment. I’d be serene too if I lived in this fabulous […]

Wu Hoo!

02 . 17 . 10

Jason Wu has been the darling of the fashion world since Michelle Obama wore one of his gowns to the inaugural balls last January and rightly so since it’s wonderfully talented. That also makes him on of the favorites of Vogue so it’s not surprising that he recently had his new showroom designed by Anna […]

There are occasionally moments in my life in New York when I feel like I want to pinch myself to make sure they are real and attending Carolina Herrera‘s Fall 2010 fashion show yesterday morning was one of them. It was definitely a dream come true and also one that didn’t disappoint. It’s one thing […]
