Most Stylish Blogger Award and 7 Things You Didn’t Know About Me

Award Season Starts Early Thanks to Jewels from the Roving Stove . Plus, my picks for The Most Stylish Bloggers!Thank you, thank you to the gorgeous and talented Julie Anne Rhodes, aka Jewels from The Roving Stove for the Most Stylish Blogger Nomination!I'm more than flattered to get the thumbs up for constantly amusing you with the Impromptu Madness videos that Brad Boles and I have so much fun working on. If we had our own TV talk show (hint, hint out there), we would love to have YOU as our resident cooking expert!In lieu of an acceptance speech, part of the the Most Stylish Blogger nomination is to reveal seven things that you did not know about the stylish blogger. The other part of the award is to nominate seven other stylish bloggers.In no particular order, here are my nominations for the Most Stylish Bloggers:1. VagabondNycVintage clothing gurus Andrea Perrini & Naveed Hussain are the real deal when it comes to spot on fashion assessments. The two are like a walking fashion history book with a very stylized edge, and that's what makes editorialized vintage clothing shop and blog so distinctive. The VagabondNyc's are part of our Contributor team. 2. EyePreferParisRichard Nahem left New York for Paris and decided to do what he does best, go to the most divinely unique places and tell you about it! His customized walking tours of Paris are brought live to his blog. Richard is my oldest friend and a team Contributor. Oh, he also stretches a mean pair of shoes but that should have gone under things that you don't know about me. 3. IWantToBeHerAndrea Linnet does what we all secretly do. She sizes up a fab outfit, fantasizes about being that girl for a moment, but then she tells you where to get the goods. If Sybil was chic, she would live on I Want To Be Her! Andrea is the co-founder and former creative director of Lucky Magazine. 4. Humor ChicaleXsandro Palombo's daily society portrait blog is about as tongue in chic as an illustrated cartoon about fashion, style and all it's glamourous players could ever be! Highly addictive satire and very on the mark. 5. Marie ForleoI thought Marie was so spunky from taking her fitness classes at Crunch & find her upbeat, down-to-earth, girl power motivation to make each woman live rich, happy and hot totally inspiring!6. RedCarpet-FashionAwards.comCatherine Kallon has an outstanding photographic fashion memory, bar none! Do you want to know which celebrity wore what and where to get much of it, she's your girl!7. DoIHaveLipstickOnMyTeeth.comKim White is a make up artist who knows how to put the fun in beauty. Whether it's Mugshot Monday where beauty violators are brought to justice or her Bathroom Beauty videos, you'll get your gorgeous on and leave with a smile… and that's the best beauty bonus around.Honorary 7+. Julie Anne Rhodes, Jewels from The Roving Stove so shoot me, I'm nominating Julie Anne back! No only is she gorgeous, glam and totally the real deal but she's the downtown girl's Nigella Lawson without the finger licking.

How to wear a vintage jacket

Styling tips to make a 7-year old YSL Leather Jacket look modernI have an authentic vintage Yves Saint Laurent black leather jacket that I purchased around 2002 when I worked for the company. The blazer style leather jacket with shoulder pads was very expensive at the time and cost ?2k (over $3,100). Luckily, I was able to use my employee discount. Unfortunately, I have not worn it much since. With the return of the big shoulders this season, I think that I could I get away with wearing it… what do you think? What would you recommend wearing it with? Should I wear jeans and heels or a dress. I wear a lot of dresses so what style would you suggest. What style of jeans or trousers would be best? And what kind of heels? How about stilettos as I have some lovely YSL stilettos that are also gathering dust.For some descriptive info about me- I am 5’5″ tall, a size 8, age 38 with pale blonde kind of grey hair.Sorry for all the questions but my YSL jacket is hand-stitched Italian leather so I do not want to let it down by wearing it with the wrong thing!

The Word: I Hate Hats

I am a major proponent of the humble knit ski cap – preferably picked up at Duane Reade for $3 on a freezing night when the cashmere Marc Jacobs beret thing I’m wearing seems over-affected for the circumstances. Also, the cheapest ones are the most malleable – length and width wise – and always come in my favorite colors – black, gray, charcoal, army-green, bandaid . I don’t feel bad if I lose them and they allow me more time between $300 highlights. It’s also freezing in NYC in winter.ralph lauren pith helmetI don’t like hats that are worn without thought or purpose or a sense of wit. (Isabella Blow -how dearly we miss her – wore hats like a pro, with cheek and fuck-all elan.) When I style stuff I use hats to mess with proportion and to offset and draw they eye wherever I want it to go. I often love them on the runway. The tri-corn George Washington, Napoleon Bonaparte numbers in KL’s most recent and excellent resort 2010 show in Venice come to mind’. As do the pastel feathers of Marc’s aw 2008 subtle tour de force. And of course there’s the rich explorer woman in Ralph’s retro romances.So that’s what’s great.I hate hats on
