Back to Old School- Backpacks, Rucksacks, Knapsacks, call it what you want, but they are super stylish now

Not since we all became stylishly exhausted from the ubiquitous 90′s nylon Prada backpack, have they made such a strong fashion statement- not to mention, impossible to keep again in stock these days.Maybe it’s the return of 90′s minimalism that’s trending now.Maybe it’s that a backpack makes absolute sense when navigating the urban jungle on a bike.But from Euro street style to hot off the runways (see the Alexander Wang knapsack that we love, right), the backback is looking so right these days.Erogonomics aside, the right backpack needs to look right on you! Afterall, it’s all about how the bag’s shape plays with your rear.

Brad Boles remains on the lose in The Hamptons spilling the bean$… and, yes, the overuse of the color pink can make me cringe, expect on Brad, of course. — S.H.Action, Lights, No Camera…Polo in The Hamptons proved to be very interesting for me with the pink Birkin… ostrich of course. I know Sharon is probably upchucking the the thought of pink, but we both agree that the color can be chic on a MAN!I bumped into Tinsley Mortimer whom I haven’t seen in a few months so I was very surprised to hear that she is not shooting any more for her reality shows We had a good laugh about what living your life in front of the camera is really like… finally, somebody I could talk to about how it feels when people come up to you like they know you. She agreed that what people see is a very small glimpse into your real life. Six Degrees of Separation…largeTinsley in person is very sweet and her boyfriend Brian is so sexy! Topper, Tinsley’s ex-husband, is dating Meredith Olstrom, daughter of the fabulous decorator Barbara Olstrom. Barbara is the one that did the interiors of Russell and Kimora’s saddle river mess! It’s six degrees of separation, as Meredith dated Nick Rhodes from Duran Duran after Julie Ann Rhodes, my close friend, divorced Nick. He went on to Meredith and, together for six years, they’ve lived in London.

Wear Socks With Heels, YES You Can Pull It Off

You can thank Prada for pushing the heels worn with socks trend, but you can more thank the stylistic street set for making this look right!There is always the intrinsic fear that if you don’t have the knack, you can end of looking like an out of place tourist in a big city wearing a pair of comfort sandals and tube socks… the fashionless and don’t give a damn on vacation set.However if you pull this trend off, you can look very chic, comfy, and even a bit cheeky.

Indrani to Jill Zarin to the possible NEW Real Housewife, some Millionaire Matchmaker scoop, there’s gossip and glamour in the Hamptons this week

“The East End was crawling with Bravo camera crews this past weekend.originalOn Saturday alone, I was involved in two shoots one starting at 11AM involving a potential NEW Housewife for “The Real Housewives of New York City!” This was NOT a set up. I just happened to be doing the interiors of this hottie’s Bridgehampton home when the doorbell rang. I answered it to the shock and amusement of the camera crew!Needless to say, the maybe new Housewife pulled it off without a hitch, even though there were tractors and workmen in the background. And there I was directing the workman not the camera crew… brick by brick! All the while, the potential new Housewife was dripping in diamonds and 5-inch Louboutins!Gorgeous, equally yummy, half-naked staff then served a sumptuous lunch… ooh baby! Now, if that is not what makes a Housewife, I don’t know what does. Believe me ladies, I’m lucky enough to have the original and funniest RHONYC Jill Zarin as a dear friend and I know what a Real Housewife is all about!LISTEN TO SHARON AND BRAD ON BLOG TALK RADIO:

Listen to internet radio with Focus On Style Talk on Blog Talk Radio

How big is your match?That evening I found myself at the Bravo filming of “Millionaire Matchmaker” in the tony Southampton home of a very sexy and powerful millionairess. Believe me, there were more lights and cameras than the East End has seen in a while.The crowd consisted of a very beautiful mix of single ladies and eligible men. My metrosexual guy friend Rob Siegel and I ran into another Bravo family member at the party- Indrani, who was a guest of Jill and Bobby Zarin. We had a great time gossiping about Indrani’s “Double Exposure” show and what goes into those over-the-top photo shoots! And you thought my life is crazy!”
