Over the weekend I stopped into the Nest for some Christmas shopping and came across these candle boxes that resemble violent weaponry. At $450, they are slightly outside of my candle budget but I feel a D.I.Y. coming on…
Giambattista Valli came onto my love list when Mary Kate Olsen wore a leopard and cobalt look by the designer to Art of Esylum event last year. I have been steal hunting for a piece ever since.
This year I intend to have all of my Christmas gifts purchased before Thanksgiving, which means that I am making frequent and somewhat impulsive purchases. The theme this year: things they would not find for themselves.
Today I was introduced to Linda & Harriett, a stationary company out of Brooklyn. The husband and wife team behind L&H are incredibly talented and I know they are going to bring some visual pleasure to my closest people this winter.
Pinterest is a digital pin board and it keeps all of the ideas and inspirations that I find online in one place. Instead of cutting up magazines (or in tandem with), I can keep all of my ideas in one place – not on my hard drive.
I prefer (and recommend) collecting a wardrobe instead of purchasing it one all at once. With the latter, you tend to make purchases that are unnecessary and you fill your closet with garments that are not particularly wow.
Sometimes achieving a where did you get that look is not about a new style or cut- a fresh, not so obvious color combination will get you the attention.
I created this dress for Bravo TV’s Courtney Kerr (as seen on last Monday’s episode of Most Eligible Dallas) and the halter-style and high front slit did not cause any fashion explosions- it was the color combination I chose that won Court best-dressed.

Last night I went to the mall and found these pumps at Steve Madden. I stared for a little while, tried to instagram a picture so the rest of the world could indulge (but the lighting was too bad) and left with a pair for myself.
