LITTLE LUXURIES: Keeping Glamour at Your Fingertips


Nothing says NEW YEARS like a little sparkle.  Maybe it's a sequined mini dress, or an oversized cocktail ring.  Or maybe it's something a little more unexpected...

Dior's new Vernis nail color in Gold Revolution is a luxuriously simple treat for your hands and feet.  But hurry, this liquid gold is a limited edition and it won't last long. So get your hands on a bottle now, and you'll be guaranteed a holiday with the midas touch...

STYLE FILE: The Holiday's "New Look"



Last weekend for a friend's holiday party, I channeled an "early Betty Draper" and Dior's New Look with this vintage, full skirt.  The sheer, ruffly top lent itself perfectly to be tucked into the high waist, and the platform stilettos kept the look modern.   Some sparkly jewelry and a pop or two of red and I was feeling very holidazzle!  







Merry Christmas my Fellow Fashionphiles!!

LUST LIST: C.A.R.T.I.E.R Spells LOVE...


You better watch out, you better not cry!  You better not pout, I'm telling you why...
Because only the nicest girls on Santa's list deserve something from the undeniably lust-worthy Cartier Love Collection.

The Love affair began back in the 1970's with the Love Bracelet - which, legend has it, you weren't technically allowed to buy for yourself, but rather it had to be gifted.  A luxurious yet discrete symbol of affection - the bracelet's clasp is a lock which can only be opened with a tiny golden screwdriver, presumably to be guarded by your lover.

The signature bangle Love Bracelet will run you upwards of $4300, although a chain linked version now exists at approximately $1300.  Wedding bands and select pendants are on the slightly more affordable side, and most ring in at under $1000.  Expensive?  Maybe.  But then, who can put a price on Love...?

STYLE FILE: Teal Appeal


 I confess - this outfit was actually from several months ago (hence the shorts).  But I just found it in my archives, somehow skipped over along the way, and figured it deserved a turn...

For a friend's house party in early September, I paired a ladylike blouse with short shorts and sky high heels.  The blouse itself is an Andy Warhol skull print which offers an interesting contrast to it's conservative cut.  And the 5 inch suede Loubs really "pumped" up the look. (I really can't help myself with the puns -- nerd alert!)

STYLE FILE: The Caftan That Can


The title of this post is credited to this uber versatile caftan I picked up from H&M ages ago.  When left unbelted, it's a huge sheer caftan - perfect for throwing on over a bikini.  Add a slip, some massive wedges and layered necklaces and it's a boho explosion.  Or - as seen here, a wide belt and sky high boots plus red lips and it's a sleek fall look -- perfect for an Interview Magazine shindig in MePa a few weeks ago.

STYLE FILE: I Dream of Silk...IE


Forgive my cheesy play on words for this posting, but these billowy silk pants do kind of conjure thoughts of Barbara Eden's magical wardrobe circa 1965!  For a dinner party with friends, I kept the look free flowing with a long embellished tunic and cropped silk jacket.
