Truth be told, red is my favorite color for everything except party affiliation. The First Lady broke tide in a STUNNING Jason Wu red halter gown for the Inaugural gown first dance, and maybe, just maybe, that can be a sign of getting us all together.
Far from the more girly white Jason Wu frock from 2009, this red draped chiffon and velvet number was sexy in the most powerful and …READ MORE »

Liar, liar… my big, empty promise to myself and why New Year’s style resolutions hardly ever work…
It’s a week into the new year, and where are you?
In my over 20 years in the style business, I have never once thought that truly being stylish came from a check list at the start of the year. I don’t bother with resolutions of any kind anymore. If I was really going to commit to a …READ MORE »

Truth be told, I HATE telling anyone to ditch something trendy. Something that is such a quick fad should not be in a chic wardrobe to begin with. There IS a sophisticated difference from looking on trend and being trendy… particularly, after 25ish.
Trendy is a blip on the style meter that spoils faster than a gallon of milk and dates itself in one of …READ MORE »

Dear Sharon: For the past three years, I trip out of my shoes. It started when I was on the my way to job interview when, all of a sudden, both my feet slipped out of my pumps!
