    hooray to the pull-ons!

    October 15, 2014

    Haven’t time for the entire army of buttons on your shirt? Get a pull-on. Haven’t time to fit into your skinny jeans (that sure is a chore for me)? Get a pull-on. Haven’t time for breakfast? Put on a pull-on already. Pull-on styles are fixers, at least in my house. They


    Burgundy, my new red

    October 13, 2014

    I (would like to) think that certain penchants come with age. Burgundy is one of those colors I’ve grown to appreciate. I cannot think of a better texture than this wooly fabric to match that strikingly deep ruby. And the girly flare adds a nice balance to the aged color.


    plaid x leather

    October 11, 2014

    Faux leather has its perks. For a circle skirt like this, the thick texture of pleather gives it a plump structure. Topping the skirt is this three-quarter sleeve plaid tee. The best part of this soft tee is its relaxed fit. The cropped cocoon jacket is optional but I like

    structured houndstooth x leather wrap belt

    October 8, 2014

    This Twinkle by Wenlan (how cute is the name btw?!) dress has so many dazzling chic details that I wish many of my other wardrobe pieces would have too. The pipes traveling down the bodice are chichi; the structured shoulders aren’t overly-dramatic; the tulip skirt comes with side pockets –


    jumpsuit re-wrapped

    October 6, 2014

      You’ve heard of this but since I always reiterate: one-piece outfits are like my second skin. Loose-fit dresses included; jumpsuits even more so. They are and feel liberating – the paramount priority I give to many things in my life. 😉 That’s also exactly how wearing this wrap skirt


    snake print in hot pink

    October 3, 2014

      The appeal of side stripes on pants never gets old to me. The all-over abstract snake print in hot pink adds another fascinating dimension. I’m wearing my favorite early fall sweater on top – I cannot seem to get enough of this baby. It has everything I want in


    Fit Flare Fluffy Wuzzy, Knit by Mom

    October 1, 2014

    I can barely hold in my excitement: this fuzzy-wuzzy, light-as-air, fit and flare, pastel sweater dress was knit by my loving and certainly talented mother! Months ago, I casually brought it up to mom that I’d like a drop-waist sweater dress made in fine and plush yarns. Being a knitwear


    9.2.14: Global Chic Is On

    September 2, 2014

    I love rich tapestry. The embedded ethnic elements are absolutely fascinating. And what matches tapestry better than some suede fringe? The combo is boho, artisanal, and always quite a statement. My girlies on instagram seem to obsess over the buckled sandals. These heels go well with pretty much everything. The only


    high contrast

    June 3, 2014

    Like I said, I spent a lovely weekend at the House in Kinderhook, New York. We took these pictures inside and around the property’s living room/studio – a high-ceilinged, freestanding cottage next to the two-story main house that holds 3 bedrooms and a kitchen. The country property is so artsy and chic that
