Travel: How to get everything you need in your carry-on

I used to travel quite a bit. Whether it was visiting friends, going to New York for business, or seeing family. I always managed to pack everything I needed in one carry-on bag. I was so terrified that my luggage would get lost. And like most women I packed my favorite, just bought clothes, shoes…

Don’t be afraid of Color

Are you the girl that looks in her closet and it is a sea of black, grey and white. Yes, black is slimming, yes its easy to grab and go, and yes it goes with everything but bring some happiness into that closet of yours! Color is fun, fabulous, and brings happiness to others. You…

Summer Beauty Must Haves

Summer is right around the corner! Thank god! Can’t wait for longer days, warm nights, the beach, and sun-kissed skin. Here are a few summer essentials I can’t live without. My skin tans pretty easily but it can also be super pale until a couple of weeks of summer go by. To get me over the hump…

Favorite Online Retailers

Online shopping has become my new norm. I love filling up my basket with every item I want to own, which literally could be 20 things in one sitting. Then I go through my basket and filter out the things that aren’t really practical or too expensive. So in the end I’m left with 5-10…

The Many Ways to Wear a Leather Jacket

As fall approaches one of the staples in your wardrobe should be a great black leather jacket. Contrary to what you may believe this jacket can be extremely versatile. Let’s start by talking about the fit. Look for a jacket that is comfortable in the arms. What does that mean? You want to be able…

CRUSHED VELVET

There aren’t too many things that are as luxurious as velvet, and the ’90’s brought us loads of it in the crushed variety.  Crushed velvet in particular is produced by pressing the fabric down in different directions, thus making the fabric very lustrous. This fall season many, if not most, retailers and online outlets are…

Raiding your Mom’s Closet

  Now, this might be a little bit more difficult for you if your mom wears white turtlenecks and sweaters that match what Holiday season we are in. No offense but you probably aren’t going to find much in her closet that you are going to want to wear. However, if you have a Mom, Aunt,…

Fur – Love it or Hate it.

If I could afford real fur I would but unfortunately that kind of extravagance is not in my budget. So I look for the next best thing, a great faux fur. This season and last season fur has been a must have on most of the runways, especially the fur vest. There are so many great…

Monochromatic Looks

If you don’t follow Kim Kardashian, you should, just to follow her sense of style. She has become the queen of head to toe monochromatic looks (since dating and now marrying Kanye). Long past are her days of Herve Leger bandage dresses and juicy track suits. This has always been one of my favorite ways to…

A Must Have

Most of you might already have this little number but if you don’t I strongly recommend getting it. I received it as a Christmas gift and it might have stayed in my make-up drawer way longer than I care to admit. Obviously I ran across it one day and started using it, now I use…

Quintessential Black and White

There is nothing more classic than black and white. To some it might remind you of Chanel, ringing of sophistication, but to me it means easy. I think you should always start with a great black pant (not cotton, this is not dressy enough for the office, a party, or a nice dinner). In case you missed the…
