Inside the Armani Redbox Pop-up

Everyone has their ‘power’ color: a hue that when you wear it, it makes you feel as if you can take on the world fearlessly. For me, red is that color: it’s powerful, it’s sultry, it’s classic (I’ve written a previous ode to red before). So as you can imagine, stepping inside Giorgio Armani’s redbox […]

Dolly and I can relate on a couple of levels–first off, despite her infamous song “9 to 5,” Dolly and I have both chosen career paths that do not fit within the time constraints of a nine-to-five job. Second, Dolly and I both love to sing. Third, we both have a knack for fashion, even […]

Castles and Clothes: How To Dress for Hearst Castle

California has its own archaic gems to share—one need only seek the old-world magic to find it. I thought it was about time to bring these photos from Hearst Castle out of the Krischic archives to spark a little inspiration before heading into another work-week! Sometimes, I am so on the go with graduate school, […]

A Tour of My Bachelorette Pad in the City!

Sometimes, I feel like Carrie Bradshaw on the West Coast–wearing my Jeffrey Campbell’s instead of Manolo Blahnik’s editing video packages and writing articles, because let’s face it, if Carrie Bradshaw was placed in this generation, she would be a multimedia journalist too! Maybe a little different than Carrie is my fascination with history: as I […]

Brunch Babes: A Celebration of Female Friendships

Former United States Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright once said, “there is a special place in hell for women who do not help other women.” That is something that has definitely stuck with me. This past weekend was a reminder of the value–not a monetary, ‘what can these people do for me’ value,’ but one […]

Ah Christmas…a time of merriment: The scents of gingerbread and pine leaves in the air, heartwarming music and a blur of red and green has passed by too soon. But perhaps there is a way to extend some of the Christmas magic beyond the “acceptable” timeline. I am proposing here on the blog to extend […]

Another 365 days have passed–each one of them filled with a myriad of memories, adventures and you guessed it, chic outfits. 2019 is days away which means it’s that time of the year where I reflect on the exciting experiences I was blessed with this past year: -I spent the final semester of my undergraduate […]

The Clothing Cafe

It’s only natural that someone who loves coffee as much as I do would wear an espresso-colored ensemble. Brown is a cheery alternative to black for fall and winter muted mode (fashion in French). The runway this past fall fashion week was all cocoa everything. Case in point: Burberry’s Spring 2019 Ready-to-Wear show. Mr. Tisci, […]

BeautyCon Pop: My Makeup Mantra

Last weekend, I ventured through what I would call a beauty funhouse for makeup-lovers: BeautyCon Pop! Beautycon Pop is a ‘pop-up’ experience where different cosmetic brands have taken over individual rooms and decorated according to their aesthetic preferences: Makeup brand, Limecrime opted for a neon museum of bright pinks and greens with “The Birth of […]

I have this thing for historic hotels—especially during the Christmas season. Nothing puts me in a more merry mood than meandering through the holly-decked, green-garnered staircases of a hotel built in a different era. It’s as if the magic of that past time does not truly come alive until this time of year. When I’m […]
