sunday lust list…(on wednesday!)

Since I was MIA this weekend, I have decided to back track and post a Sunday (now Wednesday – oops)Lust List featuring leather duffles. For all of those who don’t plan on purchasing the scooter, or want a more chic, polished look at the airport, these beauties are for you. Vintage Hermes – sigh. JCrew, $475 Tuscany…

the perfect piece of ‘luggage’

I recently traveled home, and while packing I couldn’t help but think I need a bigger purse/tote to travel with. I ended up taking both a small backpack – more on my fave leather backpacks later – and my usual black leather purse. Yet, let’s be honest, it just wasn’t working. I think a Celine…

best rolling bag – literally

I was going to do a lovely post on chic leather duffel bags, my go to carry on bag, until I found this great invention. I have definitely had a few close calls with flights – talking my way through security lines, running down the terminal, barely making connections, etc. You know the drill. I…

I have a feeling Tom Ford is one of those men who will just continue to get better looking as he ages. I wanted to wish you all a happy Friday and wish Mr. Ford himself a happy birthday! Today he turns 50. Lookin’ good – as always. Fun fact: Did you know that Tom…

documentary love

“fashion is the armor to survive the reality of everyday life” I am dying to see this documentary on Bill Cunningham, the famed photographer behind the Times Style section. I believe he is the true originator of the street style phenomenon. Sadly I missed the film while it was in NYC. Good thing it comes out in September…

nordstrom hits the big apple

The one store I love to visit when I am home is Nordstrom. I love Nordstrom. It’s never crowded. It’s not too big, and it’s not too small. It carries a great selection of merchandise, and sometimes they have a piano player to add to your shopping experience. I used to say in college that…

a little vintage love

Yesterday, I explored a chic look inspired by the 50’s, and today I am still very much stuck in a vintage haze. I stumbled upon the gorgeous white dress below while searching through Etsy. It led me to Allen Company Inc. which is a vintage boutique based out of Allentown, PA. Along with their Etsy store, they…

50’s on my mind

I have fallen in love with a 1950’s inspired Katie Ermilio skirt from Shopbop.  This Vogue image is the perfect outfit inspiration.    Are you a fan of the style of the 50’s? What is your favorite decade? ps- I just must point out that the heels in the Vogue image are Vuitton. I couldn’t find a…
