January 2012

A tribute to black

January’s coming to a close leaving us with two more skin covered months to endure, with the winter blues just setting in by now. However, with each passing month we move closer to seeing some signs of life. Finding myself with nothing to wear during these blah months, black is... Read More

Fancy Feet

It’s about time I whipped these babies out of their box. I couldn’t find a better moment than today, a beautiful late-January afternoon to release the caped fur ball from hiding. The shadows paired with the light signaled a chance for them to strut their obligatory stuff. And a little... Read More

Mid-winter pick-me-up

Reality check, it’s Mid-January. Almost tax time, not quite Valentine’s Day, no snow, but you still need to keep warm. Although the weather is as fickle as the stock market these days, it is always better to be prepared. On a dreary grey day like this, all I really want to do... Read More

Get mesmerized

If you have been paying attention to fashion lately, you might have noticed all the trippy psychedelic videos that have been appearing on your screen. No, nobody spiked your Koolaid. Its just a phantasmagoric moment in fashion videography meant to hypnotize us fashion zombies into it wanting (needing) all of the latest... Read More

Looking towards the future

Fashion is one endless cycle. Constantly regurgitating the trends and naming it THE DECADE OF ____ and then debunking it as a Multi-decade Mashup is kind of screwed up. Fashion is in a quandary. Never before have we been able to wear 60’s grunge, 70’s funk, and 80’s ostentation all... Read More

The Headband

The other night I tuned into the Golden Globe awards and as usual, all the celebrities in attendance were dressed to the nines. Head-to-toe in designer frocks, jewels and, of course, hair styles that were to die for, the stars showed up at this annual glam fest in the latest... Read More

Accessorie Circuit Intermezzo Collections 2012

  This past week I was at the Accessorie Circuit at Piers 92 and 94 in NYC. Accessorie Circuit is a huge trade show with hundreds of exhibitors that draws buyers, editors, manufacturers, brands, and fashion bloggers (like me) from all over the country. Future trends, colors, mediums, and fresh... Read More

On a shoestring

Need a mid-week pick-me-up? Raise your hand. Well if you did, I can’t see it, but maybe soon I will be able to. Come Wednesday, I know I’m ready to do the happy dance. Especially when I see a pair of fabulous heels. I don’t know if you had a... Read More

London calling

I have an Anglophilic bug right now, actually more like Royal Fever. I just returned from the UK for the the long holiday between Christmas and New Year’s and am a little obsessed over everything British. That includes the coolest designers Alexander McQueen, Paul Smith, Joh Galliano, Vivienne Westwood, Stella... Read More

A new start for 2012

Happy New Year! Did you make a resolution yet?  I did. I revisited last year’s resolutions, and while I cannot rewrite what was written in the books, I can rethink how to make a new chapter, and make this a great year. My New Year’s resolutions for the forthcoming year... Read More
