I Should’ve Been A Socialite

I remember the first time I saw the title “Socialite” used to describe a person. I was thumbing through an issue of Vogue magazine and there it was, in a caption under the photo of an immaculately dressed woman. Where did I go wrong? How did I end up not being photographed at a swanky event, wearing the latest designer duds, sipping champagne? What left turn did I make when I should’ve gone right? The world may never know….

God Bless Tom Ford

Today marked the start of New York Fashion Week! Another year where I am sitting in my office scrolling through the images on my work desktop. Another year where I am bracing for the unattainable and undesirable. And yet. Here is Tom Ford with his Spring 2019 collection that makes me yearn for fall, cool crisp air, and a city street block to walk upon.

Trend Alert: Vintage Glam

Just as spring frolicks into summer, the vintage vibe gets amped up to 100!

This is the perfect time of year to dust off the cigarette ankle pants, sexy mule heels, and that off shoulder ruffle blouse. Fix yourself a gin and tonic and read a trashy romance novel in the poolside cabana.

All the babes at Cannes

Oh hey there! Long time, no write. Or is it long time, no type? Either way, it’s been a cool minute since I last clicked the clacking keyboard and poured out my brain to you diligent followers. My apologies!

Let’s see, since I last blogged, I have started a job search, started an apartment search, held multiple showings at my old lovely apartment, found a new apartment, moved, and held a housewarming party.

It’s that time of year folks – time to shop the Anthropologie Gift Guide!

In this ever depressing political climate, isn’t it nice to know that we can always depend on Anthropologie to provide us with unrealistic gifts that we can spend our hard earned money on? I mean, the buyers at Anthropologie are truly doing God’s work.

Let’s stay blessed and dive in, shall we?

Perpetual WCW, Rihanna, Takes a Solo Flight in Harper’s Bazaar

Looks like I have to pick up a copy of the March Harper’s Bazaar next time I go to Target. Which, honestly, will probably be today despite the fact that I went there last night.

Elie Saab Spring 2017 Couture

With the Oscars right around the corner, it seems fitting that we explore the lovely gowns gracing the catwalks. Royal blue. Gilded crown gold. The collection’s sleek silhouettes, prim hemlines, and satiny textures is very Jackie O. meets Cleopatra. One can only hope someone, somewhere graces the red carpet with one of these lovely ensembles.

Glutton for Punishment: 10 Things I Want from the Anthropologie Fall Collection

Oh Anthropologie, the store I love to hate, but would hate to live without. It never fails that I find something that I love and immediately wish to own when I visit an Anthropologie store. Whether or not I can afford it at that moment in time is a different story. This fall, this glorious election year, panic attack, mind blowing fall, I am craving gem tones, lush velvets, and deep browns to carry me through. My muse is a fictional 1960s socialite who lives in a rich urban cultural center and spends a lot of time on a college campus. Think, The Graduate’s Mrs. Robinson meets Jackie O meets Mary Tyler Moore. On Monday, I will be starting a new job that will actually be on a major university’s campus, so I am thrilled to plunge my sartorial choices into the retro coed hemisphere.
