Christian Louboutin has the ability to make a women feel beautiful and sexy, just by slipping on a pair of his red soled heels. The famed footwear designer, who just happens to be my all-time favorite shoe designer (which is evident by my “go to” choice of footwear), helped bring stilettos back into fashion (thank you, Christian!), and continues to turn out imaginative designs season after season. In 1993, he found his inspiration for his trademark red soles, when his assistant was painting her nails red. He thought red soles were flirtatious, and boy was he right! According to The New Yorker, he sells more than 500,000 pairs of his exquisite shoes each year. I don’t know what I’d do without my Louboutins.
Yesterday was a perfect Autumn day in the city. Most likely, one of the very few days left to actually enjoy being outside, without freezing your ass off. And there’s no better way to spend a gorgeous day like that, than gallivanting around Central Park with your besties. After our delish lunch at Per Se, followed by playing bocce ball in the park, we sat down to discuss a significant issue… what to do on Halloween this year? And more importantly, what mind-blowing costume to wear!
Exactly one year ago today, I met a gorgeous stockbroker at Bean & Bean cafe in the Financial District. I don’t drink coffee, but it was pouring outside and I needed shelter from the rain, so I ran to first awning I saw. Then I saw him, sitting at a table right by the entrance, dressed impeccably in a sky blue Prada shirt; he was the hottest man I’d ever seen.
“James and I saw each other four times that week, and before I knew it, I was in a relationship with a man who had 18 tailored suits hanging in his walk-in closet.”

It’s starting to feel like Fall in NYC. People are turning over their closets, putting away the sandals, and taking out their boots. You know what that means… it’s finally time to start rocking the trends of the Fall runways! A major trend seen on the catwalks, that won’t have us choosing between staying warm or looking good this winter, is something you already have in your closet (or packed under your bed), your favorite and mine, a cozy sweater!
New York City’s Museum Mile stretches along 5th Avenue on the UES, and, as the name implies, is full of Museums and other fine art institutions. The crown jewel of Museums, The Metropolitan Museum of Art (located between 82nd & 86th), is the largest museum in the US. It holds every category of art, in any imaginable medium, from all over the world, since the beginning of time, allowing you to go on a timeless journey and live history, through art.
