Blogger Jewelry: Rare Jewels

Notice how I didn't use the over-used, incredibly predictable reference to jewelry as "bling" for the title? You can thank me with cash. I am heavy into jewelry right now, especially dramatic necklaces. Let's take a look at the lovely pieces recently seen on a few of my favorite bloggers: I love this combination of heavy gold necklaces, and the length is perfect. http://theseams.blogspot.com/ This vintage gold necklace is a great accent under blouses as it lies perfectly on the...

Style: Like the Boys

Sometimes I want to be like the boys. No, not in the smelly-feet-raggedy-drawers-don't-clean-up-after-yourself way. I mean in the important way: wardrobe wise, of course. It's not a new idea: women have been "borrowing" men's clothing for years to great effect: Think of silver screen stars Marlene Dietrich and Katharine Hepburn draping themselves in men's suiting, the iconic movie wardrobe of Diane Keaton in Annie Hall, and the laid-back glamour of Yves St. Laurent's le smoking. Even the boys...

Easter Style: Suited Up

Suit and clutch, vintage; necklace, local designer Nomad; shoes, Guiseppe Zanotti I'm back from a much-needed break, hoping you had a lovely Easter/vernal equinox/whatever you celebrated. Time with my family + marshmallow Peeps = a great time for me! Pictured above:  this year's Easter suit, which is really just a vintage suit from the 80's given to me by a former co-worker who would regale me with stories of strutting around offices (when smoking was allowed indoors!)...

Style: Blue Crush

I'm usually more of a purple person (thanks, Prince), but for some reason bright blue seems really fresh to me right now. Maybe it's because warmer weather is coming and blue reminds me of the sky and sea. Maybe it's because blue contrasts so nicely with all the gray/black/taupe in my wardrobe (really, who needs six gray cardigans?). Maybe it's because I've been craving some of that good ol' blue Smurf ice cream from Kings...

Work Style: Take Flight

This jumpsuit was yet another goodie I dug out of the trunk of my car. I want to sew some sparkly Michael Jackson-inspired patches on this sucker so badly. Just call me Maverick! Vintage jumpsuit and clutch, army surplus belt, Giuseppe Zanotti heels, Claire's earrings. *Posts will be a little light this week since I'll be working on the magazine. Cross your fingers for me!...

Wear It Now

The whole "Upper East Side housewife in the Hamptons" look has never been my thing, so I have to admit, I turned my nose up a bit at Tory Burch in the past. However, her Fall/Winter 2009 collection made me do a double take and I've seriously reconsidered accepting that marriage proposal from a wealthy New York investment banker type. Wait, what? Banks are failing and the stock market is in the dumps? Oh. Nevermind...
