Art Basel: Where art and fashion collide.

    For 10 years now, the art world has descended upon Miami Beach, like a bird zeroing in on its prey, for a whirlwind of art, showings, and day-to-night indulgence. As a former Art History student who dove right in to my first career at NYs auction houses and who still loves art,... Read More

Runway to Reality

I call this the score of the century, my red and blue playful plaid jacket from Thakoon. The big hair? I tried new curling tools, but the jury is out on that one. Don’t want to be channeling the Farrah thing. Was going more for the groovy chick look. The jacket... Read More

Statement Necklaces

Is your neckline getting the attention it deserves? With warrior-inspired  jewelry catapulting down the Fall runways (The Hunter in me likes), vintage chokers making an elegant comeback and minimalist graphic neck bands turning heads everywhere, neckware is the schizz right now. From oversized collars at Elie Saab and Michael Kors to crystal embellished silver... Read More

My Week as Marilyn

My love affair with Marilyn Monroe runs pretty deep. It has been 45 years since the death of actress, singer, showgirl, and goddess and even though I have never met her, I will always admire the screen siren. Why am I captivated by the blonde icon?  For one she is the... Read More

Sweaters to shrug off the chill

November is “fair warning” season. A premonition of winter, soon to blow flakes at our doorstep. It is the changing of the leaves that is the tip off with darkness creeping in at 4pm and the plummeting temperatures that is the harsh reality here. We all lived through it before, so... Read More

Catch the fall fashion train before it’s gone

It’s about time I put up this video about Fall trends. Better NOW than never. Even though it’s mid-November (as I write this here in NY, it’s nearing 60 degrees), we only have 40 days till Hanukah begins and 45 days till Christmas. Wow, that is really soon. Although this... Read More

Versace for H&M. Be Bold.

Christy Turlington. Photograph by Irving Penn, VOGUE, 1990. Last night Versace launched their collection for H&M. Another collaboration between mega fashion house and mass market retailer. A bad-ass rock-n-roll collection. And it is on its way to stores, November 19th. I think the whole collaboration between high fashion x mass... Read More

DANNIJO treasures

  It is that time of year again when my inbox is getting flooded with sample sale invites. I bet yours is too. But if you are going to go to just ONE sale, this is NOT the one to skip.  DANNIJO, the edgy sophisticated jewelry line, is one of... Read More

Run With It

If you have been following my blog, it is not really my style to write about athletic wear. Why?  Because I wear it everyday to workout.  It’s really boring.  Most moms with kids at school prance around in their ubiquitous black Lululemon leggings all day after they go to the... Read More

Date night

You only get one chance to make a first impression. Thats what came to mind when my friend asked me what she should wear on a date. I’m not one to dole out dating advice, and figuring out what to wear on a date is never easy. (I sort of... Read More
