Modern Pearls

I remember being a a teenager and thinking pearls were so old-fashioned. I thought the only way to wear them was as a short single strand over a very lady-like outfit. Which indeed is a classic look! Now though I really love pearls. I’ve come to adore their soft glow and luster. Unlike gems they don’t sparkle loudly, they whisper…

Ice Jewelry

I find these earrings really special for many reasons. The cut glass stones and dark hardware feel vintage, and the stones’ pale amethyst color lends a misty tone — that strange color the sky turns just before a thunderstorm. I love this color because it’s less flashy than clear stones would be, sophisticated glamour. The bib necklace pictured below is done in clear…

Her gown was a delicate silk organza dress and specially designed belt, by Vera Wang. The bodice is wrapped very simply and the skirt is full and has layers of fabric. The belt has a starburst look and adds a lot of sparkle without…

Drab as the new Fab, Nixon Watches

Well this is unexpected–drab is now fab? I daresay, it is. Well, for the moment. While I admit there’s something interesting about clothes and accessories that look like they’ve lived, I normally prefer them to look that way because… they have. For those of us with far less patience, you can buy that worn and weathered, seasoned and savored look.…

Rose Gold Ballet Flats

It’s been a year and I still love rose gold, in fact I think I love it even more. Since my post last year I noticed a lot more rose gold jewelry everywhere. But then it went further and has shown up on other accessories too. Wallets, bags and even these great fold-up ballet flats. Rose gold is still the…

Spring for Men: Gingham is the New Plaid

I admit it. I love plaid shirts. There’s omething about a slight “I chop wood” vibe that definitely catches my attention. Not too scruffy, but a little rustic suits me fine. But now that spring has finally come to New York, when I see people in plaid button-up shirts, it just doesn’t seem quite right. I very much associate plaid with fall…

iLove Special Report: Espadrilles!

Every spring, I start craving again for a look that I’ve always really loved: Espadrilles! And these days there’s no shortage of styles to suit everyone’s personality– high-heeled, flat versions, closed toe or strappy, even great ones for men. I recently spotted a man wearing a nice pair of flat ones. The rest of his outfit was simple, capri-like pants and…

A Nautical View, Trendy vs. Classic ā€“ Two Ways to Wear …

Spring is in the air! And these cool breezy days in New York remind of a sea-faring look. The nautical-themed look has been around for decades and is among the most versatile of styles. I admit Iā€™m obsessed with collecting navy/white striped tees and summer-weight sweaters. For a more classic take on it, navy and white stripes feel richer with…

The Oscars – Dress Picks!

Last night I admit, I wasn’t totally in the Oscar/Red Carpet mood, although I’d been looking forward to the Oscars. I’m not an expert on film, and my appreciation of it is based on two things: the simple pleasure of watching a story, then having my inner stream of conciousness sparked through emotions evoked, and second, the immense amount of time, dedication…
