New York Fashion Week 2021- Part 1

Posing with designer Nicole Benefield at the Presentation of her debut Collection for FW at Spring Studios for New York Fashion Week 2021.

In what seemed like a blink of an eye, New York Fashion Week 2021 has come and gone.  Pre-pandemic, I had attended NYFW for several years, and to say that it felt different this season would be an understatement!  But different doesn’t mean bad or worse.  In fact, in some ways it was better. Most of the collections showed virtually, or in formats such as presentations and “meet and greets”.  Although I will always love the full-on energy and excitement that comes from an in-person runway show, I also appreciated the flexibility and calmness of watching a show virtually or by appointment. In addition, many designers opted to show outside of the official schedule. Love this as it gives us all more time to appreciate the individual collections.

Read on for three standout collections (Nicole Benefield, Negris LeBrum and Fllumaé) that showed for NYFW this month. Continue Reading →

Gift Guide, Fave Gifts Under $50 for the Holidays

As many of us are sticking to a tighter budget this holiday season, I wanted to make sure I included gifts in a range of prices.  These are my Fave Gifts Under $50.  All are gifts that I would love to give as well as receive, and I particularly chose these from brands or retailers where I love to shop. Don’t forget, you sometimes have the option to pick up in-store if you’re worried about getting the items before Christmas. Happy Holidays!

Shoes and Boots to Buy Now

Now more than ever, I want to be comfortable but without sacrificing style!  And this, or course, applies not just to my clothes, but to my shoes as well. Although I’ll never give up heels completely, I’m a lot pickier about the type of heel that I’ll wear. Comfort and walkability is a priority!  As we’re headed into the winter season, I am sharing my fave shoes and boots to buy now.  All classic looks with great style, I specifically chose styles that you’ll be happy to wear year after year. 😉 Continue Reading →

What to Wear Fall / Winter 2020, Wearing Zara Tweed Jacket, Sezane Skirt, Stuart Weitzman Over-The-Knee boots, and carrying Caroline De Marchi Bag

Hi Everyone!  Hopefully, you are enjoying the fall season.  With all the craziness of the past few months, I’m still stuck in a summer transition mode as time has flown by!  Also, I usually would have attended fashion weeks in NYC and Paris in Sep/early Oct, so not going in person kind of makes me feel like we’re still in early September. 😳   But here we are in mid-October… It’s time to embrace the fall season, and of course fall and winter fashion 2020!

Some of the trends I loved that showed on the runways for this season are ruffle blouses, fringe detail, jewel tones, plaids and prep school inspired looks.  I put together a round-up of my fave pieces that incorporate some of this season’s trends while being versatile to wear dressed down as well as dressed up.  Continue Reading →
