Although I’ve never been one to obsess over having a date or a romantic evening planned for Valentine’s Day, there’s something about embellished cards, pink roses, and heart shaped candies that brighten spirits amidst a season of cold and gray. If you’ve managed to make it through a frugal, sugar-free, dry January, what better way to ditch your New Year’s resolutions than treating yourself to macarons, eau so fresh candles, and pastel hued sweaters. After all, tis the season for all things sweet and pink.



Satin & Gold

Visions of Sugar PlumsMy earliest memory of dressing up for the holidays is of my mom and I racing to see the Nutcracker for the first time when I was seven-years-old. We were running a few minutes late, as most women in my family typically do, and we stopped to get McDonald’s french fries on our way to the ballet (how very Carrie & Aleksandr of us). What I remember most is holding her hand, while dressed in a long sleeved, black velvet dress accompanied by ribbed white tights, black patent Mary Janes, and a black satin bow in my hair (hello, 1998).

Dressing up for the holidays is something I’ve looked forward to since that day. This year––just as I did when I was seven––I’m leaning towards dressing in fanciful fabrics like this faux-feather bolero and emerald silk dress; playing up the glamour of the season with minimal gold accessories. After all, the season of silver and gold only comes once a year.

Hope your holiday season is off to a magical start!





Cozy in Camel

Unless you’ve been living under one of Miranda Kerr’s crystal rocks, you’ve likely been eyeing this season’s coat du jour—the camel coat. Along with the iconic trench coat and classic double breasted peacoat, a camel coat is a timeless essential that has graced the shoulders of fashionistas and Hollywood starlets for decades.

This season, a caramel colored coat made of sumptuous wool and cashmere is at the top of my holiday wish list. While sifting through various lengths, shades, and styles, I’ve narrowed it down to a few favorites. This winter, I’ll be donning mine with everything from jeans and sneakers to little black dresses.

Feast of Fashion

This time of year marks the start of wonderful, multifarious family gatherings, holiday soirées, and festive photo ops. Thus providing ample opportunity to indulge in this season’s bright jewel tones, charming ruffles, and fancy footwear. With Thanksgiving only a few weeks away, it’s time to prepare an array of outfits for any fashionable feast.

Casual Thanksgiving LookFew things are as classic as an ivory turtleneck. This version gets a chic update with ruffles and a rib-knit. Style the classic look with sleek ankle boots, and treat the host to a glass of wine (or two) throughout a casual turkey carving.

Sweater (Cinq à Sept available at Sak’s Fifth Avenue), Ankle Boots (Alexander White, available at Barney’s New York), Frame denim, Beringer Luminus Chardonnay, Etude Pinot Noir. 


Formal Thanksgiving


Florals are in full swing this fall and this frock brings the trend to life in a rich, romantic print. The mini length is casual enough for an intimate “Friends-giving”, or pair it with suede over-the-knee boots for a more formal affair. A festive flower arrangement always makes for a gorgeous centerpiece that the host can enjoy after the holiday.

Dress (A.L.C. available at Intermix);  Boots (Stuart Weitzman), Nail Polish (Chanel Le Vernis longwear nail colour; available at Nordstrom).

Semi-Formal Thanksgiving




Burgundy is one of my favorite hues for fall, especially in the form of a sophisticated sweater dress with a feminine flounce. The best part about it? No one will know if a little Pinot accidentally escapes your Riedel wine glass during dinner.

As kids, the start of August always meant gearing up for back-to-school and my favorite season of all: fall! Ever since I was a teenager, Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale meant back-to-school shopping with my mom and sister. This year I purchased a few pieces for early fall along with a couple of beauty staples. This top isn’t included in the sale, but it’s on my pre-fall wish list. Roses and floral prints will be major trends this season, along with blush. This dress is perfect for transitioning to cooler temperatures, especially when layered with a moto jacket.
