Spring Furs in London

fur style in London

Remember these crazy furs I blogged about this year in New York? It seems that fantasy fur in interesting – and often whacky – patterns and colors are now hotter in New York than the classic “old-Hollywood-style” furs. On a recent trip to London, however, I noticed quite a different trend… Read more…

7 Ways to Make All-Black Dressing More Interesting

all black dressing

We are all trying to simplify our lives. I don’t know about you, but I’ve never had a busier time. I owe a lot of that to the blog; when I’m not writing a post (or freelance interpreting in the courts), I’m photographing street style, tweeting, instagramming, or some other such activity. Don’t get me wrong: I totally love […] Read more…

15 Cool Scarf Tricks

Last week, Liliya proved to us how a fabulous coat and scarf can make for a totally chic winter ensemble. I can’t think of a better way to express your personal style on a blustery sidewalk! On the day of photographing her outfit, we met for brunch at Balthazar in Soho, and from there, we took a walk […] Read more…

NY Fashion Week Street Style (Photos by Donilee!)

NYFW street style by Donilee

I have an idol in New York City. Her street photography (not to mention energy, enthusiasm, chutzpah, and writing talent) make me wish I could be her for just one day! I am lucky to be able to say that Donilee is a friend, and although I will probably remain in my own skin for the duration, her fabulousness continually inspires me. During New […] Read more…

L.A. Style During New York Fashion Week

L.A. street style

My sweetheart husband Mark whisked me down to sunny Beverly Hills from dark, rainy Seattle for a long Valentine’s Day weekend. It was in the high 80s F (30-31°C), we discovered the perfect chopped salad, and Mel Brooks happened to walk by us (looks good!) While keeping a (virtual) eye on Fashion Week in cold, snowy New York, I cruised along Rodeo Drive and […] Read more…

Leather leggings and you – a possibility?

how to wear leather leggings

There are garments that are tricky to pull off, and then there are “leather legs.” I’m talking about skinny leather pants, leather leggings, skinny jeans with a shiny coating (to look like leather), and faux leather pants or leggings. Let’s face it. It’s not a look for everybody…or is it? It seems that celebrities and fashion bloggers have been all over […] Read more…

Fantasy Fur

Fantasy fur

On my most recent trip to New York City, I expected to see ultra luxe fur coats as I did last year. Instead, I saw something very different. The classic fur coat was practically an anomoly, and I saw more of what I call fantasy fur (so fantastical, I wonder if I’ve dreamed them up): a wonderful assortment of crazy colored/patterned faux […] Read more…

Dressing Like your BFF

Friends who dress alike

Have you noticed that it has become a lot more commonplace for a couple of girlfriends to go out twinning? I love the fact that what was once considered a social faux pas for adult women is now widely accepted. It makes sense. I mean, I’m sure you’ve caught yourself using a favorite phrase of a […] Read more…

18 Statement coats: from elegant to casual to just plain fun

Statement coats

Whenever I set out to update my wardrobe, I have to face an internal battle between sticking with classics or going for something daring and expressive. This year after moving from California to Seattle, I need to stock up on cold-weather garb. Most recently my practical side won out, and I invested in a classic, clean-lined long black heavy wool coat by Cinzia Rocca (arriving […] Read more…

My fave fall looks in New York last weekend

Fall in NYC

Last weekend, I spent a delightful day in New York City. Although it was chilly, the sun was out, and there was a generally cheerful vibe on the streets; stores like Lord & Taylor and Saks had already begun decking out storefronts for the holidays, while Valentino and Botega Veneta featured beautiful autumn-hued garments. Street style as usual, inspired me with great outfits – […] Read more…

Let your socks show!

Let your socks show

Karl Lagerfeld is known to have said, “Trendy is the last stage before tacky.” While many of us like to be current when it comes to fashion trends, we also realize that we are not all suited to every one of them, nor do we want to forfeit the opportunity to express our personal style in order to simply […] Read more…
