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?”


My Vintage Jewelry Collection

I am crazy for vintage jewelry and accessories and my absolute favorite destination for the rarest vintage items is Depuis 1924, based in NYC (online or by appointment only). They are known for the world’s largest vintage Chanel jewelry collection, and also for rare vintage items, like sunglasses and handbags, from designers like Versace and Hermes.

“You know all those Chanel sunglasses Rihanna has been rocking lately, this is where she found them…”


There’s Something Sexy About a Woman in a Tuxedo

Known as one of the Paris jet-setters, frequently hitting the night club scene, smoking as many as 150 cigarettes a day, and for being a heavy drinker and cocaine user, Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) was one of the most influential couturiers of the 20th century.

YSL is one of my biggest inspirations into the world of fashion, just slightly behind Coco Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld. This amazing French designer, who at the age of 21, found himself as the head designer of the House of Christian Dior, was the first living designer to be given a solo exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1983
