First of all, can we all agree that it’s such a relief to have Domino Magazine back? Lord, did I feel crushed when they closed their doors a few years ago! But it’s back, and it’s goooood.
I haven’t even made it through their entire Spring issue, but I’ve already found plenty of inspiration. At the top of the list is the work of artist Donald Robertson, who also happens to be head of Creative Development for Bobbi Brown Cosmetics. Robertson is known for (more…)
My love for jumpsuits is well-documented, given their easy chic, throw on and go capabilities. They’re like the perfect uniform– stylish, functional, easily adaptable. So when I learned that Isabel Marant, queen of easy chic, and designer of many of my oft-worn jumpsuits, had a new jumpsuit for the season, (more…)
The other day I was at Barney’s shopping for a present for a friend. I found the perfect thing in record time, so I decided to run down to the makeup and fragrance floor in search of a little something for myself (I couldn’t resist; I don’t make it into brick and mortar stores that often. So when I get the chance, I have to check out what’s new, at least on the least expensive floor).
As I was meandering around, a helpful sales dude asked if he could show me something. Normally, a question like this makes me want to run and causes me shrivel a bit inside, because it often takes a bunch of time I don’t have and ends with tons of pressure to purchase something I don’t want. (I know that normal people can just say no, but once I get cornered by someone, it can be very hard for me to step away.)
When I saw Lupita Nyong’o walk down the red carpet (early in the evening, long before I saw most other nominees), I knew it wouldn’t really matter what anyone else was wearing. I’d picked my favorite. Though many, many people looked gorgeous, Lupita carries herself with such grace and composure, and looked so stunning in her ice blue Prada gown, I’d seen all I needed to see. Of course, I kept watching, just to be sure, and because (more…)
I’m late to the game in finding this book, but now that I have, it’s so good that I want to forego all other life activities and read it until I finish. If I had my wish this weekend, I’d read it until a) I finish; or b) the Oscar’s are on (which happens quite early in California, particularly if you start with the red carpet shows).
Unbroken, written by Laura Hillenbrand (the author of the phenomenal book Seabiscuit), is the true story of (more…)
It’s nearly March, and my mind is moving toward summer. The gorgeous weather on vacation last week only enhanced my excitement about the upcoming warmth and has me contemplating what I’ll want to wear when I don’t need a coat on all the time.
So here it is. The first outfit I want to wear when the temperatures soar. The first piece happens to combine two of my favorite things: culottes and jumpsuits. (more…)
Now that Karl Lagerfeld has sent sneakers down the Chanel Couture runway, it’s official that sneakers can be paired with anything. So why not a pleated (and printed) maxi skirt? A tee shirt and some more traditional (more…)
