I was at a business retreat this weekend with fellow women entrepreneurs who suddenly found themselves in the spotlight. Sounds great, right? Nope. These otherwise smart, savvy and successful women looked like deer in headlights when it came to how they present themselves.  Simply because they never really thought about it before. It just was not their thing. And now, they felt insecure, irrelevant, inappropriate and out of touch. It doesn’t have to be that way. Even if style doesn’t come…

Most people think of hair extensions as a way to add length but there’s a whole other plus side to this modern hair wonder. Just as I grew out some overprocessed highlights– and when my hair not only was back to its natural color but healthy again– I fell prey to one horrible haircut. Let’s be fair to say that my finally shoulder length hair was suddenly hacked into something that could only be described as a soccer mom mullet!…

Think of this as Spanx that’s a part of you. Strawberry Laser Lipo treatment is a non-invasive inch-loss and body contouring treatment that shrinks stubborn fat cells. The treatment is fast and mindless as you lay down with space-age looking paddles strapped to you for a 10-20 minute treatment. The unwanted fat is then naturally released from the body via the lymphatic system. It’s followed up by a quick session on a vibration plate exercise machine that impressed me so that…

Who was the best dressed at the Oscars? It's kinda non-plus for me. Really, no BIG wow moments. Look, I'm sitting home (in my brand new and fabulous Ralph Lauren chair) watching the Oscars with my budding filmmaker son, husband, and Mr Poodle (he does stare at the TV). For us, tonight, it's more about "the film" as that's the future filmmaker's thing. So as much as I want to have my fashion head on, what I'm seeing is not...

Sometimes you need to be a tourist in your own town. Sometimes you need to see the world through a new lens. Sometimes you need to do something different just to see how other people see it. Today, my family and I visited One World Trade that towers 1,776 feet above New York.  The view from the observation deck is beyond spectacular. It undoubtably puts you in awe of the everyday sights that you take for granted from below. Just take a...

Golden Globes fashion 2016 is rather uninteresting in a very good way. Honestly, (most) everyone looked chic and elegant. There was barely a misstep and the looks were clean and stunning. Kinda sorta like the way we want to look. Nothing fussy. Nothing overdone. Mostly streamlined and well-edited.  The secret to a great look is to keep it simple + keep it striking. The overall theme for Golden Globes fashion this year were column dresses in clear colors, which although gorgeous,...

Growing up I was always memorized by the style of Jacqueline de Ribes. I would tear through the society pages in my mother's Women's Wear Daily and amidst all the socialites photographed at charity functions and black tie events, one woman would grab my attention like no other. Countess Jacqueline de Ribes with her regal profile, long neck and volumes of dark hair, model slim figure and unmeasurable poise was a beacon of authentic style... a woman who was knew...

Thank you Karl Lagerfeld for inspiring me to want to spice up my hosiery drawer with lace tights again! Lace stockings have been looking "off" for a few years. Add just a few sartorial twists and they look so right again. Mostly due to the styling at the Chanel Paris In Rome Show at Cinnecitta Studios where the models wore mules along with lace tights. "The mule... It's a typical Chanel shoe, open behind, but we had never done it. With a lace stocking,...
