Although Bryan Boy claimed at the last Lucky FABB conference in New York that business cards are obsolete, it is still one of the easiest ways to swap information when meeting people face to face.
Hello all! NYFW is literally right around the corner. And if you can not get to the shows then following all the action online is the next best thing. Of course I would like to say that yours truly is the only go to stop for all you Fashion Week news, but who am I kidding?
There has been much talk in the last few years of the democratization of fashion. The idea that fashion can be fun and can be embraced by the many. Yes, street style inspired fashion is nothing new, but Moschino’s Resort Collection for 2015 is certainly a giggle inspiring romp down the “streetz” of fashiondom.

Regular readers of my blog know that I generally do not wear heels higher then three inches, and most of the time I wear heels that two inches or less. I often wear sneakers as they are comfortable and luckily for me, super on trend.

Last Saturday I had the great pleasure of attending my first Vogue Knitting Live event. I started with the company in August and I have been looking forward to this event since my first day.

Ilove working in Soho and I must say one of the perks if living in New York, is that yes you are pretty much in the middle of it all. Yes I call Soho my hood even though I do not live there, I do work there and I spend a lot of time there. And you never know who you will see roaming the streets. A few months ago I saw one of my favorite street style photographers
Rent The Runway is one of the hottest break out companies and success stories in the last few years. Launching roughly five years ago and offering their services online only, they now have brick and mortar stores in three major cities as well as styling services. And hold on to your hats ladies, but they are now offering a monthly service

It was a cold brisk day on Friday, but sunny and bright. So what is a girl to do on such a day on her lunch break? Why shop of course! I picked up this sweater and it was quite the steal.
When I was in design school the whole carrying around a large black portfolio case was more or less on it’s way out. No one was displaying their work this way anymore, and if you did, you were dating yourself. But this was pre the iPad days so portfolios were still presented non-digitally.
It is a new year and of course that means there is a new Pantone Color of the Year, and the color named for 2015 is quite the departure from previous years—it is a dark, rich toned hue, and is named after the well known wine that hails from the city of Marsala in the southern region of Italy.
Well this year I continued in what just may become an annual Christmas Eve ritual and I made butter cookie cutter cookies.

I was encouraged after making homemade biscotti which was not difficult either.
