Look for Less: Sweater Weather

By |November 20th, 2011|Look for Less, Why Did You Wear That?|

Have we come to terms with this weather yet?  Or are you one of those folks who wears a parka with flip flops?  C’mon.  Don’t do that to me.  Put away your cut off shorts, and let’s get those sweaters out of their Space Bags.  You should not be hanging your sweaters, after all.  Once upon a time, I had a pretty sweet gig working on product development for private label knitwear, so I know my yarns.  Whether you opt for merino or cashmere, it’s cold out there and the best way to bundle up is in a cozy sweater.  Check out how some of Hollywood’s cutest stars are wearing the warm and fuzzies:

1. Wyatt Heather Grey Thermal Cashmere Sweater, $159, 2. Madewell Utility Zip Pants, $19.99, 3. Marc by Marc Jacobs Metal Aviators, $98, 4. Berge Mistral Hobo, $320, 5. Nine West Transport Motorcycle Boots, $129

1. Splendid Chunky Ombre Stitch Poncho, $248, 2. 7 for All Mankind A Pocket Flare, $113, 3. Kate Spade This Is the Year Idiom Bangle, $58, 4. Milly Allie Tote, $465, 5. Sam Edelman Wilma Wedge Bootie, $130

1. J. Crew Fisherman Cableknit Sweater, $98, 2.7 For All Mankind Gwenevere Skinny Jeans, $198, 3. Ray-Ban Rounded Wayfarer, $116, 4. Treesje Warhol Messenger Bag, $568, 5. Steven by Steve Madden Deziary Boots, $199.99





Beauty Buzz: Birds of a Feather

By |June 30th, 2011|Beauty Buzz|

Alright… this has been going on for a while now.  I tried to overlook it hoping it was just a fluke and it would go away if I didn’t acknowledge it.  You know- kind of like when you’re a little kid and you think “If I can’t see you, you can’t see meeee!”  Well, unfortunately, that just didn’t happen.  It seems that the feather hair extension is here to stay… at least for the summer.

I’m not really sure who can be credited with starting this fowl (get it? fowl?) trend.  Was it Ke$ha? Was it Steven Tyler?  Does it really matter?  Here’s a rule of thumb: If Steven Tyler is doing it, you probably shouldn’t be.  Pirate braids are one thing, but feather extensions is where I draw the line, dammit!  However, if you’re going to jump off the bridge (I mean, all your friends are) below is a snazzy little hair accoutrement:

Sultra Feather Hair Accent, $25

Or perhaps you’d rather go the homemade route (because are you really going to spend 25 bucks on a feather?).  Try this awesome DIY feather extension.

So whattya think? Will you be sporting the feather extension this summer?



Why Did You Eat That: That’s Amore.

By |October 11th, 2010|Los Angeles, Why Did You Eat That?|


Established in 1964, Dan Tana’s is a true Los Angeles institution. Loved by locals and celebrities alike, on any given night you may bump into anyone from Hilary Duff, Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian, or George Clooney… so you best bring your A-game.

DantanaThough it is considered a “steak house” this place reads old school Italian to me. There is nothing fancy shmancy or over the top here. The red vinyl booths and checkered table cloths give a cute and kitschy feel (though I doubt they put thought into it). You really can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. From spaghetti and meatballs to chicken parm, you will surely leave satisfied and stuffed.

Beauty Buzz: A Hair Raising Experience

By |September 30th, 2010|Beauty Buzz|


I’ve gotten a little poll crazy today (and no, not POLE crazy like the girls of Scores). It seems the ladies of tinseltown have gone a little lock crazy changing their hair color, chopping off length, and well, just looking a little crazy. Behold…

UGH. Katherine Heigl. What the eff? What happened? Something bad? Normally she has such luscious locks but, this looks more like Cabbage Patch Hair! In this photo, she looks unrecognizable to me.


After recently celebrating a birthday, newlywed Hilary Duff is photographed here leaving the hair salon and sporting a new hue. Personally? I love it. I think it’s a really flattering color on her. Lookin’ good, Duff.


Here’s Harry Potter’s Emma Watson making her way to class at Brown sporting some noticeably shorter hair. Um… K. Stew, I don’t think you have anything to worry about. Her hair is even shorter than R. Patz’s.

Why Did You Wear That: High and Dry

By |December 9th, 2009|Why Did You Wear That?|

Since it’s a miserable rainy day in New York today, I thought I’d dedicate this one to celebs and their rain boots.  Perhaps you don’t feel your chicest when strapping on your wellies, but after seeing some seriously stylish ladies parading around in theirs maybe you’ll change your mind. Hey, better than destroying your new suede OTK boots.


I believe Kate Moss was the first to make rain boots chic. Because that’s what Kate Moss does.


Gwyneth Paltrow in some serious lace up rain boots.

EXCLUSIVE: Hilary Duff Loves Vancouver! (And her mom!)

Sarah Michelle Gellar in Hunter boots.


Nicole Richie in Hunter boots.


Ashley Olsen in Jimmy Choo for Hunter rain boots. (Does she know it’s kind of an oxymoron to be wearing sunglasses at the same time as rainboots?)

Last spring I wrote a little ditty on the Do’s and Don’ts of rainboots. Please review and stay dry!
