have always been a bit of a rebel at heart. I was never quite a mainstream girl and I never tried out for the cheerleading team. And I am going to admit to a secret—The Royals is a guiltily pleasure of mine. And my favorite character of course is the princess.

K the diamond collection from Natura Bisse may not list diamond dust as one of it’s ingredients but your skin just may think it is getting the royal treatment.

pring is finally here in NY and I am so ready to do a little spring shopping. I feel like after the major spring cleaning that I did a few weeks ago I should reward myself with a little spring shopping. I got a fairly nice tax return and even had a dream I went out shopping and spent $500…well I will not be doing that, but I will be purchasing a spring coat. As I have spoken about before on the blog I struggle with coats—it seems they never quite fit right, t

With a sophisticated, dare I say pop art approach with it’s solid swatches of primary colored garments paired with floral prints, dusty pastels, jewel-toned textiles, bold patterns, multi-hued feathers and sumptuious fabrics this collection feels simultaneously regal and fresh.

few weeks ago in this post I wrote about the 70’s inspired trend and in particular flare cut jeans and trousers. I looked at wide cut trousers and how to style them. This trend is still fairly new, though it has been tried before in recent fashion history but did not catch on. In fact, I remember about eight years ago when I was still living in Seattle, seeing flare jeans in the stores
