Loving Lately

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 – Two Ways to Wear this Mood

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 I’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…

Youth & The Luxury of Time

“Do you ever feel like we are wasting our youth?” This is what a dear friend said to me a few hours ago, over an after-work apero (aperatif). What real food for thought. I myself admit to spending a lot of time over-thinking things. I often get lost in my thoughts, so much so, that I miss what is going…

Alexander McQueen, The Great

(photo from WWD.com) Here’s how it happened for me. When I got to work this morning, I was excited that fashion week had finally arrived. I got the usual cup of coffee and hunkered down to do a bit of work, while keeping an eye on several news feeds online open in an extra window so I could keep up.…

Pre-runway Buzz: The New “It” Model – Sedene Blake

There’s a tingle in the city, this week Fashion Week comes to New York. Like everyone else, I’m eager, excited and printed the schedule weeks ago, tacked it up, and neon yellow marks the key presentations I’m dying to eventually see. A bit of anticipatory buzz has been certainly circulating; among it I have come across tidbits on new models…

2010 Grammy Awards – My Top Rated Dresses

I haven’t ever posted my top picks for gowns or beauty/hair looks from awards ceremonies before, but since I created this blog as an avenue to voice my opinion, I figured, why not! But there’s good reason here still. More and more as time goes on, I see a beautiful convergence between the industries of musicians/artists, designers/dress-makers and film actors/celebrities.…

iWant: Apple Bites and the Brand

Today, the power of the Internet came into full view, and I myself participated heavily in the massive flux of information, up to the minute coverage, of Apple’s tablet announcement. I personally was following 2 separate feeds on Twitter and also a couple of websites. Then copy/pasting all I could into my own Facebook status update. (What fun to be…
