The Fashion Sneaker

The Fashion Sneaker

FUN FACT: Over the past two years the search for luxury fashion sneakers surpassed luxury handbags among Lyst.com’s 80 millions users. This past spring I pointed out this new direction in footwear on The Simply Luxurious Life podcast while discussing trends with Shannon not too long ago. You might have noticed the major designers like Gucci and Balenciaga. Even Vogue’s Editior-in-Cheif Anna Wintour is collaborating with Nike. We all know Adidas Stan Smiths were having a moment not too long along, and perhaps they are the ones who kicked off the need for fashionable sneakers. Fast forward to today and the… Continue Reading »

The Summer Kimono

The Summer Kimono

Summer travel is in full swing and I have come to the conclusion that I always over pack. After spending a week and half in New England I realized I only wore a fraction of what I brought. During my trips back home 95% of the time I am in a bathing suit at the beach. Or if I’m not at the beach I prefer the comforts of breezy summer basics. LESSON LEARNED. Cue in the kimono… I love the look and ease of a kimono for the summer.  I can throw it over my bathing suit during the day… Continue Reading »

Shop the City: HATCH Collection

Shop the City: HATCH Collection

I was first introduced to the Hatch Collection when I came across a pair of linen-blend pants on Net-a-Porter. HATCH is actually a line designed for during and after pregnancy. It can also be worn by those not expecting (like me!). I admit I was a bit hesitant to order the pants when I found out this was a maternity line. However, the collection is well-designed and doesn’t scream “maternity”. Plus, The pants are super comfortable. Now this is a maternity line you will get your money’s worth since the silhouettes can be worn well after the baby is born…. Continue Reading »

Summer Straw Bags

If you asked me what this season’s key accessory item is I would say it’s a summer straw bag. A straw bag adds texture and an effortless look to your summer ensembles. The options are endless.

Here are my picks for summer straw bags that will take you from day to night (a few are even on sale). SaveSave

Shop The City: The RealReal

Shop The City: The RealReal

You are probably familiar with the go-to online luxury consignment site The RealReal. Due to popular demand The RealReal opened their first New York City retail store in SoHo at 80 Wooster Street. And let me tell you, it doesn’t disappoint. During my first visit to The RealReal I was impressed with the well-designed layout of the store and how it was organized. You will find sections like ‘spring layering’ and such. The RealReal has a great array of high-end of clothing and accessories for women, men and children for a fraction of the retail price. The retail location provides luxury repair… Continue Reading »

Pajama Sunday | The Power of Love (and Style)

Pajama Sunday | The Power of Love (and Style)

I will be first to admit that I had not been keeping up with the Royal Wedding buzz – until yesterday. My friend Courtney from Events Beyond contacted me last weekend asking if I would be interested in coming to her Royal Wedding viewing party. Sure, why not!? You know I love a themed-party. I was hooked the minute I saw Prince Harry and William arrive. In times where it seems like there is no “good news” it was great to have a reason to celebrate. As I watched the ceremony I was so happy for a couple I knew… Continue Reading »

Shop The City: Nordstrom Mens Store

Shop The City: Nordstrom Mens Store

Who said retail is dying? Not in New York City! A perfect example is the opening of Nordstrom’s first Mens store in the heart of Manhattan (235 West 57th Street). I paid a visit the other day and was impressed with what I saw. The new Nordstrom Mens flagship store is well-designed and not overwhelming for the shopper. I stopped by on a Saturday when they had a live DJ playing but was not overstimulated by the vibes. I think the store’s easy three-floor layout helped. I was on the hunt for the perfect men’s white button down shirt. A… Continue Reading »

The Look: Pajama-style

The Look: Pajama-style

Let’s face it, the majority of us will put comfort before style. Last weekend I was enjoying a glass of rosé at Wolffer Estate Vineyard and I did a double take when a woman walked by me. I literally thought she was wearing her pajamas with an oversized coat thrown over it. Now there is nothing wrong with the ‘pajama look’. I just have a suggestion on how to wear it without being mistaken that you just rolled out of bed. To make this look work you need balance. If you want to be comfortable and causal on the bottom, then you need to balance… Continue Reading »
