Setting the Mood: Happy Holla-Daze

christmas fashion editorialWhile some of you were busy posing both literally and figuratively at Art Basel in Miami, I was busy dealing with personal crises and preparing this week’s posts chocked full of gift guides that will make your holiday shopping less painful than some of those exhibitions at Basel.  Now that we’ve actually made it past Thanksgiving, it’s time to start thinking December 25th- not post Halloween like some of you overanxious overachievers thought.  It’s no secret that Christmas music is like nails on the chalkboard to me, but I will appease my holly loving, twinkle light enthusiast, overly festive friends.  So, get ready to stuff your stockings, kids.

Why Did You Wear That: To the Max

By |March 26th, 2012|Look for Less, Why Did You Wear That?|

spring 2012 maxi dressesThe maxi dress is nothing new, but that’s okay.  It’s still a closet and transitional season must have.  A maxi is great for running errands in a simple pair of flat sandals and tote or can be dressed up with heels and sparkly jewels.  Maxi dresses are a win for all parties involved.  It’s like getting to wear your pajamas all day long and no one can really say anything cause you look so stunning and you never run the risk of exposing your “Britney.”  Striped, solid, floral, tribal… you really can’t go wrong.  Check out how these chic starlets styled their maxis and re-create the look yourself for that oh-so-effortless maxed out look.

Why Did You Wear That: See Ya Later, 2008!

By |December 6th, 2008|Why Did You Wear That?|

So, it is now December. I can hardly believe it. This year has flown by!

Anyway, this means that you are starting (or if you’re an overachiever, have already started/finished) planning for your New Year’s Eve soiree. Obviously, my favorite part of any holiday, or party, or basically any occassion to dress up, is getting totally decked out. So whether you’ll be in NYC, South Beach, or jet-setting off to St. Bart’s, I’ve come up with some festive dress ideas for your very special evening. Careful with the champagne…


Oh, New York. I have spent a few New Year’s here, myself.  While New Yorkers tend to be elegantly understated, it is still fun to sparkle and stand out. (Trust me, I was once the only one in the room in a cocktail dress, loved it). Go with a little bit of subtle glam and comfortable (but still cute) shoes because after all, this is the city that never sleeps!

Why Did You Wear That: Miami, What are YOU wearing?

By |December 5th, 2008|Why Did You Wear That?|

I think I may have hit the mother load. I love Miami, but seriously, I am disturbed by some of the attire I saw from these Miami party pictures. Are there a lack of mirrors there? I would be more than happy to donate personally if that’s what the problem is.

Do you kind of wonder what happened here? On one hand, I do give the young lady on the left some credit for not falling into the trap of “jeans and varied black slutty top,” however, did it HAVE to be a tie dyed t-shirt and annoying headband thing (what is with that anyway?).

Nothing annoys me more than guys like this. I mean, he might be a perfectly nice guy and save kittens for a living, but I guarantee if he walked up to me in a bar I would run the other way. I don’t even know him and I don’t like him. I know you are not John Gotti, so please stop with the lame ganster hat, thanks. (more…)
