• A Crop Top, A Pleated Skirt, ALLIE NYC, and NYFW

    [dropcap custom_class=”normal”] I [/dropcap] have been lusting for a pleated midi skirt for quite some town now and I finally acquired one. I purchased this peach hued beauty from Zara and what was even better I got it on sale for $49.99. I ordered it online and picked it up in the store. The day I picked it up there was a huge summer sale going on and the lines were mind-glowingly long

    [dropcap custom_class=”normal”]M[/dropcap] ules are back. Any self respecting fashionista is aware of this, but that does not mean we are all on board with the trend.

    [dropcap custom_class=”normal”]I[/dropcap] t may have been one of the hottest days of the year but the fashions outside the tents at Mercedes Bends Fashion Week SS 2015 were cool, chic and inspiring. Here are some of my photos that I happily snapped in my first paparazzi attempt.

    A Parisian Family in NYC…Next Stop? Paris 2015!

    [dropcap custom_class=”normal”]A[/dropcap] few weeks ago my step family from Paris arrived in town and took New York by storm. Well ok that may be a wee bit of an exaggeration but they ( and I ) toured New York like happy tourists.

    Dinner and a Movie in Greenwich Village in NYC

    [dropcap custom_class=”normal”] T [/dropcap] his past weekend was beautiful here in New York. Blue skies, sunshine, warm weather and no humidity. I met a friend for dinner and a movie and we decided to see Closed Curtain at The Film Forum. The Film Forum is in a fun and picturesque part of town which surprisingly was not crowded. Summer in NY is hot and many people flock to the beaches and Fire Island, though there were certainly plenty of tourists about, but after all it is summer in New York

    Throwback Thursday and a Throwback with Kitty Chloe

    [dropcap custom_class=”normal”] H [/dropcap]appy Throwback Thursday everyone! Here is a picture of my kitty, Chloe when she was about six months old. She liked to sit on my desk while I was working and she would sleep with me at night— sleeping on my chest and waking me up in the morning by licking my face. She is more independent now and stays up night looking for mice.

    Pussy Riot is not for Pussies

    [dropcap custom_class=”normal”] F [/dropcap] or anyone not living in a cave we are all well aware of the turmoil happening around the world. And for many of us this turmoil is something that flickers across our television screens which we can easily dismiss with a flick of the wrist. But for the people actually living in these tumlotous circumstances there is no “getting away from it all,” there is no vacation from life. This is the life they have to live — but they don’t have to like it.

    A Road Trip To Wild Wood State Park In River Head Long …

    [dropcap custom_class=”normal”]L [/dropcap] ast weekend a friend and I took a road trip out to the east end of Long Island and headed towards the North Fork. We decided to stop at a park/camp ground called Wild Wood State Park. For my New York based readers this is a fun one day trip and a nice break from the hot and hectic pace of NYC in the summertime. It is about an hour and half drive, and well worth it. They also have camping facilities—but they do not have cabins, it is strictly trailers or tents.

    When The Healthy, Wealthy and Successful—Kill Themselves

    [dropcap custom_class=”normal”] I [/dropcap] n the last few years the fashion world was twice shaken to it’s core by unexpected suicides. First in February 2011 with the death of Alexander McQueen and a second time earlier this year by the death of L’Wren Scott. On the surface both of them seemed to have it all. Success, money, relatively good health and recognition for their work. In both cases they had experienced some upset and turmoil in their lives prior to their deaths.
