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 […]

Forward Thinker With A Vintage Dress at The Emmys

Yes, my vehement for vintage could not be diminished, even on the 2018 Emmys gold carpet and Governor’s Ball (Emmys after party). While the star-studded carpet was filled with more modern gowns, I was excited to wear my Edwardian dress of forest green velvet, lined with cream lace. I embodied a hybrid of a character […]

Commes [des Garçons] with me to the MET’s Costume Institute

New York, New York

When the plane took off, I had perfectly timed Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York” to the aviation. That song, and truly all of Sinatra’s music makes for the perfect New York vacation soundtrack. My over-packed suitcase contained many outfits I had been saving primarily for this trip. I feel so much freer in my […]
