Amen for ASOS: New Year, Better Style

You know ASOS, right? It’s a global online fashion and beauty retailer for men and women. Their target market is the 20s and early 30s so it may not resonate immediately with some of you but it’s always worth a peek. Style note: as it is based in the UK and given it’s target market, […]

Getting The Warm “Fuzzies”

It’s the time of year when you want to snuggle up in something warm or by a cozy fire on the weekend, and just be easy. Not every weekend allows for that but, one of the big trends we’re seeing is “fuzzy” outerwear fashion. I like it and can see it on a cold, dry […]

Proenza Schouler-inspired Outerwear

I saw it. I loved it. I thought of Proenza Schouler. I obsess over navy blue. It’s mine ~ it has all of the attributes of a blazer but a little more substantial for spring! Scoop it at ASOS, $144 []

A Jacket That Is As Cool As It Is Hot

It’s on my want-but-don’t need and Lust lists. This Burberry Prorsum oversize lapel bomber jacket will look great with all of my pencil skirts and dresses; and just as hot with my skinny jeans and long sweaters. Dare to Buy … here!

Daytime Sequins, Evening Sparkle

Do you own sequins? I do (now)! Have you ever wondered whether you can wear sequins during the day? and if you could, how? The rules on traditional eveningwear have recently gone out the window and it’s a daytime free-for-all. I’ve spent many a hour creating an “outfit” around sequins. I used to think they […]

What’s Hotter Than A Man In Uniform?

The answer: a man doing his duty to look good (whether military or not)! But this season, you can have the best of both worlds because military-inspired outerwear is in…actually it never went out. You’ll find the answer with Balmain, Belstaff, Dior Homme and Polo Ralph Lauren. You can either pull out your old leather […]

Preparing for Paris

It’s been almost two years since I’ve been to the “City of Lights” but, I think of it often not only because as a stylist, it’s the holy grail but because the energy of city and its inhabitants is infectious! Here’s a style secret: when you travel, a lot of what you wear is determined […]

It’s All In The Outerwear

Oftentimes, our outfit cannot be as fabulous as we’d like. In those instances, we recommend you focus on the outerwear because a great coat can definitely get you in the door so we teamed up with Ideeli to give away Desigual’s “White Coat” (retail cost $194) to one winner of our choosing. It can be you!! […]

A Coat To Bridge Fall and Winter

Never knew such a thing as “bridge coat” existed until GQ mentioned {I’m still skeptical…} but it’s apparently like a peacoat but longer. Whatever you call, the one being rocked by Trent Richardson is by Banana Republic and only $250 ~ but not available yet. The length and heft make it ideal for casual Fridays, […]

A/W 2012 Trend: Precious Coats

We all need a coat for winter (unless you reside in Florida or Arizona).  Technically your coat from last year should work just fine but if you want to be on-trend, then go for outerwear that offers a bit of embellishment that may be slightly more than you want for a daytime look, or an […]
