Feeling Blue

I will admit, I have never once considered using blue as an accent color in my home. 
I don't wear alot of bight blue and just don't normally gravitate toward it. Then I saw these photos of Tory Burch's home in Vogue, and I was force to take another look at Blue.

When I returned home from nyfw, I thought about all of the amazingly talented, and beautiful people I spent my week with. I work in the fashion industry- an industry that is filled with people who have confidence (sometimes a little too much confidence). I choose to work with, and surround myself with, people in the industry who are beautiful both inside and out. It was nice to see so many smiling faces this year, a trait that I wish more people in the industry would embrace.
( if a street style photographer asks for your photo, would it kill you to smile?)

Let's all commit to smiling more this year. Here is some inspiration to show off your pearly whites. Ha anyone tried Go Smile? Crest White strips? Professional whitening?

Cute tortoise toothbrushes by bigalow chemists, gosmile starter kit, and touch ups.

Thursday, February 16, 2012


There I was packed and ready to go for nyfw last week, when I saw these two photos. I own a few things this color and I very rarely wear them. Rethought my outfits and packed some chartreuse.

I just wanted to share this photo from an old issue of Vogue. It is of Elettra Weidemann 
and I kept it b/c I loved the little pop of color with the neutral clothing and backdrop.
I love the slouchiness of the look and would be happy to try it from head to toe.
Is anyone else happy that neon and brights are having a moment right now?

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week

I am leaving for nyfw today, and I just want to take a moment and say how thankful and appreciative I am to be invited back to see such beautiful things year after year. I began receiving invitations to shows a few years ago as my art business began to grow, and I have attended every season since seeing more an more breathtaking shows each year. I spent my first fashion week seeing 4 shows and staying at a close friends house and now I'm a regular at the empire hotel with a busy schedule. Things have changed alot over the years but one thing remains constant- the feeling of inspiration I have at the end of each show.
My days during this week have always been filled with beauty, both at the shows and while away from lincoln center. This year I will visit for 5 days filled with runways shows, presentations, meetings and dinners with fabulous fashion friends. 

I'll be sure to tweet the entire trip as usual and send lots of fun pictures for you. A favorite show of mine is always Monique Lhuillier so I'll start with this shot of her coral dress , above.

Hair Inspiration

I have been wearing my hair back more and more this winter. Love this simple and sophisticated look.

Friday, February 3, 2012


I recently stumbled upon Be&D's site- and I am SUCH a fan. I want to get a few things, but cannot even narrow down which I like most. I love a large classic bag, but also adore the gold studded bags. I even included them in this week's fifteen-nineteen
Make sure you visit, I know you'll love.

makeup inspiration

My hair dressers in my hometown will tell you, I love when people look like they just-woke-up-like-that and always ask them to mess me up a little on the way out.

Valentine's day is approaching, which means pops of pink, flirty hearts and little handwritten notes are turning up everywhere online. And I can't get enough of it.
