    runway-realway-milan-fashion-week-spring-2017
    I'm not going to lie, I may love French chic style, but I'm always partial to Italian fashion so Milan Fashion Week Spring 2017 gets me pretty excited. You know what else puts a smile on my face?  Seeing supermodel Lauren Hutton work the runway. Okay, maybe I'm dating myself, but I owe A LOT to Ms. Hutton.

  • Inspiration overload: Fantasy pieces from Paris Couture Fashion Week … don’t mind that it takes place in Rome

    Chanel-Haute-Couture-Fall-2016
    I have a special treat for you. It's total indulgence. And for me, a super sweet spot.  I've always had a thing for Rome. As a little girl in Brooklyn, I imagined myself living in Italy back in the 50s and 60s during the time of black and white movies, anything Fellini, red sports cars, chic black dresses worn with merry widows underneath, sharp eyeliner, Marcello Mastroianni, elegant yet wild parties, and everything Rome in all its decadent, gorgeous, crazy glory.

  • What Color Should I Wear?

    the truth about color

    What color should I wear is a question that I am frequently asked as a fashion + style expert. I’ve been traveling a lot lately and meeting many bright and savvy entrepreneurs at business conferences who are totally stymied when it comes to how they present themselves.

    The Top Five Trends from Paris Couture Fashion Week to give a go and refresh your look while staying easily on trend. Ok, admittedly, I doubt that you or I will have the opportunity to get to a real haute couture fitting. Or even borrow a couture dress to wear on the red carpet.
