Crazy for Radziwill

Lauren Santo Domingo profiled Devon Radziwill's apartment for this month.  Devon lives on Crosby St, which is a quite street about 5 blocks long in downtown Manhattan, SoHo to be exact.  This apartment is amazing.  The open space, the natural light and all of the earthy elements she incorporates makes this living space a perfect combination of downtown cool with uptown elegance.  I'm obsessed with the concrete floors and zebra print rugs.  I might be up for some re-decorating;).  xoxo

Green With Envy!

Chanel with leather...Perfect!
The holidays are fast approaching.  Rosh Hashanah (starting Wednesday) is the beginning of it all and with this festive season comes excuses to buy festive clothes.  It's no secret that color is ruling right now, but sifting through all the choices can be anything but holiday cheer"ific".

Emerald green is one of my favorite color choices.  Not only does it look good on a variety of women, changing the style from conservative to edgy is a simple task with green.  Adding leather to a great evening dress can take you from uptown to downtown, as well as adding an ivory silk blouse with a great trouser can do the same reversed.  Either way emerald green is a chic choice to getting noticed.  xoxo

Autumn has almost officially begun.  Here in LA we've had a hit and miss summer, but I have to admit that I'm looking forward to dressing for fall.  Boots, cashmere, coats and leather are all calling my name.  I get asked all the time what are my favorite things, so for now, this is my list for fall.  xoxo

Classic un-platformed pump...Manolo Blahnik
After all summer being in light polish, I'm ready to go dark...Chanel blue satin

Cover Up!

Not only are coats a trend, Vive le rouge!
Statement coats are just one of the top trends for fall 2011.  And honestly, probably one of my favorites.  This is one of those accessories that when purchased with some thought behind it, will last you a lifetime.  I know that some of the heavy wool and tweed textiles are beautiful and tempting, but if you're living in sunny So.Ca, that statement piece might only being talking to you from the closet.  Of course, my east coast friends have the opposite to think about.

When purchasing coats or jackets, remember their function.  Short, long, fur or leather, they all play a specific role.   I'd say go ahead on a splurge, but be mindful in your mindset.  xoxo
My ultimate splurge.  Celine motorcycle jacket

Capes are here to stay

London Street Style

Photograph The Cut
London fashion week is well on it's way.  We've seen some amazing shows specifically from Burberry Prorsum, Pringle of Scotland and Matthew Williamson.  We're seeing so much color, everything from the brightest of oranges to the most electric blues.  So beautiful and wearable.  As fun as it is to see what the designers are putting out, I love more, watching what's going on outside the shows.   Street style is what I like seeing the most of.  How people express their individual point of view through clothes is what I find inspiring.  Being fearless and unapologetic is what it's all about.  The dogs have even managed to get in on the action.  xoxo

Inside Tory Burch

Tory Burch takes us on a behind the scenes look of what fashion week is all about.  I love how beautiful, relaxed and colorful everything looks.  Collaborating with her designers, planners and PR people, takes about a year to bring the 20 minutes we see to fruition.  Although the chaos of fashion week is like no other, you would never know it by looking at Tory Burch's team.  xoxo

Fashion week has come to a close.  We've seen amazing collections, beautiful make-up and countless celebrities gracing the front row.  This week has been filled with parties, meetings and showings for the ultimate goal of designers selling their collections and eventually ending up in our closets.  As stressful, overworked and exhausted everyone feels at the end of this week, one things for sure, we'll be seeing beautiful pieces come spring.  xoxo

The happiest people are those who think the most interesting thoughts.
Those who decide to use leisure as a means of
mental development, who love good music, good books,
good pictures, good company, good conversation 
are the happiest people in the world.
And they are not only happy in themselves, they are the cause
of happiness in other.

Always a Classic

In the midst of all the amazing color we've seen and continue to see, evident in all of the Spring 2012 fashion shows, I find a camel colored pallet so incredibly chic.  I love it worn with leopard, a pop of red or even monochromatically with a bit of fur.  Color may come and go as a trend, but a neutral item is always a classic.  xoxo
