My Gloomy January

There was a time when I used to hate the month of January… the grey and cold weather… witnessing all the gorgeous Christmas trees and lights being brutally ripped down all over town… Just all so incredibly depressing. Like a long, miserable Monday that never ended.

“Dressing up in greys can be fun, we just need to remind ourself that with the right accessories and boots, January can actually be quiet refreshing and glamorous. “

What a Difference a Sleeve Can Make

Let your sleeves do the talking this season with some of Springs’s most sought-after shirt silhouettes from bell sleeves to ruffles and off-the-shoulder numbers. From sleek dresses to cool tops and even quirky knits, bell sleeves add a unique dose of fashion to even the simplest of outfits.

“Fitted on the shoulder and flaring out wide toward the wrist, the bell sleeve is the same as it always was, yet totally different. Gone are any hippy and bohemian references, instead, the new bell sleeve is modern and utterly chic.”

Is it Bad Luck Wearing Black on New Years?

One of my girlfriends called me earlier today screaming “I don’t know if it is just a conisidence, but last New Year’s Eve I wore black, and this year was the unluckiest of my life”.
While I love dressing up in something glamorous and sparkly for New Year’s Eve, I must admit that I have dressed in black for New Year’s on a few occasions.

“My friend got me wondering… what really did happen to those years when I wore black myself?”

There is A Shade of Red for Every Woman!

Ah, the power of the Little Red Dress – Tricky to get right, but fabulous when you do.
Undoubtedly, red is a color that calls a lot of attention and focus when worn. Red is energizing. It excites the emotions and motivates us to take action. Signifying a more pioneering spirit and leadership qualities, it is why you often see male leaders in red ties.

“Remember that a sexy red dress equals simple everything else! I never go over board with my accessories when I choose red.”

Fashionistas are en Pointe this Season

The ballerina trend may come and go, but, for me, dressing up as a ballerina is always in style. I’m not exactly running around the streets of New York in my pointe shoes, but I do have more ballerina skirts and dresses than the average person, I am, after all, a ballerina at heart. I often find myself dressing in ballet-inspired outfits, especially around the holiday season. One of my all-time favorite ballets, George Ballenchine’s, The Nutcracker, is premiering at the New York City Ballet next week and I’m counting the days, in my tutu’s, of course, until the premiere.
