Buckle Skirt

April 14, 2017

Spice up your outfit with a statement mini skirt for the spring/summer. If it isn’t warm enough, do it anyway by topping it off with a cozy sweater and a semi-long coat. Wrap it up, buckle it, add fringe to it, whatever you want. But go on, show off those legs.

Snowy

February 28, 2017

Experiencing winter in NYC isn’t always the most enjoyable. Anyone who lives there can say they are blessed by a snowstorm each year. The first few moments where the snow sticks to the ground, making everything look peaceful and enchanting, are indeed delightful.

You can truly wear it however you want to wear it, there are no rules to silk scarves. I have a vivid memory of my grandmother wearing them whenever she thought her outfits were missing a pop of color, or a certain accessory. It instantly made her look much more sophisticated and polished, making her look glamorous, just like all grandmothers seem to be.

About Autumn

November 16, 2016

There’s something so sweet and special about the first autumn breeze – the way the air is slightly chilly and makes the burnt orange leaves fall from the trees. The sensation one gets when it starts getting dark at 5pm and the sunset is just a faint glimmer in the distance is unique to autumn; it calls for turtlenecks, oversized scarves, hot chocolate by the fire, and warm jazz tunes. There’s nothing better than getting ready for the first cold day after a warm and busy summer and feeling that refreshing draft tickle your skin.
