  • A Chic Poncho – Easier to wear than a cape, and infinitely more a la mode

    sandro paris pull sample
    Ever since I spotted this chic poncho, that's more sweater than poncho, I've been obsessing about adding one to my fall wardrobe. Haven't quite made a decision yet. So, will it be the Sandro Paris Pull Sample Sweater, pictured above, or a more classic poncho, like one of the styles below. What do you think?

  • Continue the white sneaker trend…

    Screen Shot 2015-09-26 at 9.11.25 AM
    It's officially fall! The New York air is still mild but with that crisp autumn breeze. Not quite ready to commit to boots and too much of a chill for sandals. What to wear this weekend? Can't go wrong with (re)new(ed) classics like the Adiddas Stan Smith (see mine with the red trim below) or Superstar. White sneakers are not only still on trend but looking so right to lighten up your transitional wardrobe. Top off with a biker jacket or blazer,...

  • Crop Pants, Culottes, Gaucho… whatever you want to call it, the mid length pant is perfect for transition to fall

    clubmonaco- crop pants
    Until the calendar officially changes, the weather may still be iffy warm but my mindset is totally in fall mode. Nothing says transition more than a pair of wide leg crop pants, gauchos, culottes or whatever name suits your fancy. The nuances of each are not as dramatic as the style power of the old school length that is new again. The mid length is great for when you're not quite ready to think about tights but want a little...

  • Join me for the Shoefie Diary Instagram Challenge: Shop your shoe closet!

    shop your shoe closet- shoefiediary

    How many shoes do you own that you almost never wear? I know for me, it’a A LOT! Earlier this summer, I started a little shoe challenge for myself. Every day, I would make the effort to pull out a pair of shoes that I forgot about (I’m a shoe fiend) and work them into my wardrobe again.  To keep track, I’d take a fast #shoefie (that’s a selfie for shoes) to document it. What happened was that since I…

  • Cannes Do Chic- White is summer’s new black


    I’ll Have What She’s Having: A summer romance with my dry cleaner White is definitely on trend for summer. But I have to admit a slow love to ditch my go-to black beyond white t-shirts, jeans, sneakers, and classic, crisp white shirts (follow the links for style tips). Maybe it was last week in the California sunshine where I lost count on the plethora of white jeans,  but these Cannes Do Chic snaps certainly make the case for adding something white to…

    FEELING GROOVY flare bell bottoms

    Instant Style Uplift: For both your butt and spirits! If you’re looking for a quick style update that’s right for summer and beyond, look no further than a pair of bell bottom flare jeans. The wide leg jean is creeping back into style and looks and so right.

  • Really, what do fashion people wear? It’s more normal than you think

    Gray classics from Zara

    Do you think it involves six-inch platforms and three mixed prints everyday? Eh, think again on what fashion people wear in their real lives. You might discover that it’s a lot like you. I often hear that someone has shied away from fashion because they think it’s too complicated.  Well, it is if you follow the photos in magazine editorials or fashion bloggers who pose their day away (where do they get the time?). Everyone has a different approach to…

  • The Dress Your Age Question: How do you know if your personal stylist is right for you?

    yes some style do have an expiration date

    I was just on the most interesting phone conversation. One of my ladies, I’ll call her Allegra, was talking to me about the C’est Chic Crash Course and if we were the right fit. She said, “I’m confident to know that you won’t tell me to wear ridiculous pink glitter shoes. I know you’ll get me and you’re not 12.” You see, Allegra is in her late 40s and was in personal stylist situation where the person she turned to…
