The Heavy Metal Band Shirt

One of the biggest trends of Summer ’16 has been the casual, effortless cool of the vintage band shirt.  Beyond just vintage, artists like Justin Bieber, Kanye West, Zayn Malik and more have stylized their tour merch to give a nod to rock tee’s of the past. Not just for the festival, band shirts are super easy to dress both up or down– and bonus: they look great with a serious case of

Lust List: Top 10 Crossbody Bags

Here are my Top 10 Crossbody Bags for transitioning from Summer to Fall!  They’re all the perfect size for just your essentials, but what makes these bags so great are the interesting textures, unique hardware, and rich variety of colors.  Warm earthy tones and dark purples are perfect for fall, and it may be the only time of year when I welcome fringe.  I even let a bit of leopard

Cropped Palazzo Party

A wide leg silhouette and a pop of color make these loose palazzo pants easy to enjoy the hot, sunny weather of Summer.  The standard formula of skinny jeans and a cute blouse can seem constricting during warmer nights, and I don’t always want to opt for a mini-dress either.  I love that these breezy pants have a slightly sailor vibe, that I dressed up with a deep v body suit

Bad Gal Shine

After Lisa Frank went out of style* I never thought temporary tattoos would be back on trend, at least not this strong.  After Flash Tattoos swept the festival scene I still wasn’t convinced, but now Bad Gal Rihanna has collaborated with LA jewelry designer Jacquie Aiche on a seven-piece line of mix-and-match metallic gold/glow in the dark temporary tattoos.  A very fitting project for the inked up star, the line consists of chain sets,

The NARS x Steven Klein Dark Holiday

I rarely suffer from the fear of missing out, let alone for a party in Yonkers… but this is definitely an exception.  François Nars and Steven Klein transformed the historic Alder Manor into a dark, glam, and extravagant launch party to celebrate the NARS x Steven Klein upcoming 23-piece holiday collaboration.  Sections of the Manor were transformed into a series of haunted house vs couture bondage installations by Nars, Klein, fashion

The Buscemi ‘Alta’ for Women

Before you go restocking your wardrobe with strappy sandals just in time for Summer, take a look at the first women’s model by luxury sneaker designer John Buscemi.  Made of high-grade pebbled leather from Italy and complete with a hidden 2″ wedge, the Alta is sort of a necessity.  The Alta now comes in medium tan/black and powder blue/black along with the black, red, and white colorways released late last

At the Café

It seems like plans never quite pan out how you expect them to.  A day initially reserved for a Star Wars complete saga marathon (May the Fourth be with you) transformed into a long lunch of catching up with one of my favorite nomads at our local pâtisserie… or so we thought.  Just a heads up: Pâtisserie Manon is closed on Mondays!  In the end, we braved a pending storm
