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 […]

A couturier uses needle as its pen, thread as its ink to weave together a story—a fairytale if you will— that wakes up that part of humanity that craves beauty and majesty in a world that can feel oftentimes mundane. The problem with fairytales is that […]

There’s something about wearing red. Red is sultry. Red is vibrant. Red is a personality, not a color. Red is the embodiment of confidence, elegance, and daringness.

Redefining the “Beach Body”

My mind and my heart belong to the past, and ironically, my body shape reflects that. I have a 1950s body that may not fit the context of today, but I don’t see it as outdated.   I love my curves, and the unique way they take shape to clothing. Yes, my shape may not […]

Monochromatic for the Maximalist

For whatever reason, I’ve had a new color–or lack thereof–obsession this season: beige. The muted color is quite overlooked at times, but I can assure you that wearing it will not make you fall flat.

Valentino and the Nutcracker Ballet

With only four days until Christmas, I have been practicing some favorite family traditions: watching the nutcracker ballet, drinking festive coffee drinks, and watching too many Christmas movies to count (Anything from Beauty and the Beast and the Enchanted Christmas to Elf).
