The Fashion Review: Oscars

Where has all the glamor gone?? In my opinion, celebrities have not been on point with the red carpet lately. In a sea of BLAH, a few managed to dazzle...

Mila Kunis in Elie Saab Couture and Neil Lane Jewels

Mandy Moore in Monique Lhuillier and Harry Winston Jewels

Groovin... On A Sunday Afternoon

We all know how much I love to unearth the greatest treasures and inspirations- well, music is certainly not excluded by any means. So, I am starting a new feature called "Groovin... On A Sunday Afternoon", where I will list 10 songs that I can't seem to stop playing. Hope you enjoy, and rock out a bit.

Suno x Loeffler Randall

Keeping on with the collabs...

I love Suno for their wild, bold prints, and I love Loeffler Randall for their fashion forward, semi-affordable shoes.

The Standard x Quiksilver

I am always down for a collaboration. When two great forces meet, the results are usually stellar. Here are a few pieces from the collaboration between The Standard Hotel and Quiksilver...

Little Monsters

Who are you calling a monster? These letter pressed cuties from Hour of Nine are simply too sweet to instill any fear, what-so-ever. Plus, they are a triple threat- printed on an antique press, in NYC, on bamboo paper!

Teal Tones

There is a very specific, special color of teal that I associate with the BMW M3, and it is called Laguna Seca Blue. Lately, I have been seeing shades of it pop up all over the place, from kettles to nail polishes...

Cottage Life

I am definitely over winter, and feeling the definite need for an escape from NYC. Whenever I feel this way and can't actually get away, I browse through my files of cottages and a serene feeling washes over me... all I ever want is a cottage!

Flamingo Fun

Spring Fever

The weather in NYC is supposed to hang around the low to mid 60's for the next couple of days, and I am beyond thrilled (I already have my Central Park lunch spot at the top of my agenda)! It also puts Spring clothes at the the forefront of my brain... Jonathan Saunders' Spring 2011 collection, AHHHHH!

Tea for Two

In recent years, I have become somewhat of a regular tea drinker. So when I came cross these delightfully cheeky tea bags, I had myself a little giggle. Now even when you are enjoying a cup by yourself, you can truly have tea for two!

Kitchen Style

I just read about Rachel Bilson's new dinnerware line, Edie Rose. The precious collection is available through Macy's, and already deeply discounted- snap it up before it's gone!

The Fashion Review: Carolina Herrera

To say Carolina Herrera's designs are timeless, is an extreme understatement. Her collection for Fall/Winter 2011 yielded smooth silhouettes and buttery fabrics- she can do no wrong in my eyes. Plus, she gets MAJOR bonus point for tie front heels...
