6 Stylish Spring Accessories For Every Budget

March 14th, 2017 by

Accessories are such crowdpleasers. I mean, to my knowledge, no one has ever returned a necklace or a bag because they didn’t fit.  They are kind of a sure thing. And every season, there’s a new crop of sure things every season, ready to transform your boring old basics and make you fall in love […]

7 Simple (Affordable) Fall Fashion Updates

October 4th, 2016 by

I am not going to stop you from shopping. I’ll leave that to your accountant. Or your husband. Or that responsible shopping friend who always wonders, aloud, if you really need another pair of jeans. (Why yes. Yes, you do). My job is to show you the new stuff. And not all of it, either. That’s […]

How to Rock a Transitional Wardrobe

June 23rd, 2016 by

Okay, I’ll admit it. Transitional Wardrobes, and, frankly, capsule wardrobes of any kind can be a little, yawn…. especially for creative, spontaneous, former-impulse-shoppers like myself. If, like me, you’ve never met a frill or a bauble you didn’t adore, then the idea of the same 28 outfit combinations on repeat for 6 months can sound like […]

7 Tips for Choosing the Perfect Pair of Sunglasses_Square

If you saw me in my signature pink Coach sunglasses, you’d probably think: “Who is that movie star in those cool pink shades? Maybe she’s the world’s first short supermodel? She looks so fabulous, that she must be famous.” Oh. You weren’t thinking that? Not even the supermodel part? Alrighty then. Those sunglasses sure make me feel […]

How Do You Wear a Belt? Frequently Asked Fashion Questions

April 29th, 2015 by
Chicwish dress, $45, Tory Burch earrings, $195, Paolo Iantorno "Florence" black strappy heel, $239, Clare V. Supreme "Oui" clutch, $199, and Maison Boinet belt, $235.

Whew. I’m so glad you’re still reading. After my pantyhose-burning tirade, I was afraid I’d lost you. So if it’s okay, I’m just going to continue being all bossypants and issue another edict: Belts. You should try them. Unlike most of my fashion proclamations, I don’t take a hard line on this one. I know. Shocking. […]

Should I wear Pantyhose? Frequently Asked Fashion Questions

April 27th, 2015 by

I’m continuing Fashion Questions and Condundrums Week (I said it again. Co – nun- drum), because, frankly, last week got away from me and questions kept pouring in. Okay, maybe not pouring. More like trickling. But still, I got questions. And some of them I get over and over again. So this week I am […]

Nothing to Wear Week: The Art of Accessorizing

March 27th, 2015 by
Essential Accessories include jewelry in gold (or silver) and black shoes and bags.

There is only one thing that makes a wardrobe of basic black essentials seem less yawn-worthy. Shoes. Okay, technically two things, since you need one for each foot, but shoes are really what make black bearable to me. Also lace, and color, and leopard, and a few other girly things. The point is, I view […]

How to Wear Flats with Everything

February 21st, 2015 by

“This is what I thought motherhood would look like,” I told my mom. (Well, minus the awkward baby holding, but otherwise, exactly like this). My mother glanced at the picture and literally spit out her tea. I think sometimes she wonders where I came from. These days, I would settle for a tiny part of this picture. […]

Recently, I discovered a slew of disturbing images on the internet, all revealing a subculture that I never knew existed. Image after image of Men’s Watch Selfies. Seriously. Men are taking picture after picture of their wrists, sporting favorite watches, and posting it on the internet for other men to admire. Sad and senseless, but who can […]

The Art of Layering: 30 Days to Gorgeous Mom Style

January 23rd, 2015 by
Modern Minute classic tartan scarf, $14.90, is a classic accent piece.

I have a secret. I was not born knowing how to layer. (I was, however, born knowing how to accessorize and apply liquid liner, but that’s a different story). Learning to layer, for me, has been largely a result of practice and a little trial and error. Using J. Crew, Anthropologie and top fashion sites as […]
