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….

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. Continue reading “God Bless Tom Ford”
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. Continue reading “Trend Alert: Vintage Glam”
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.
Oh, the joys of life…yay!
But, let’s get back to the reason for which I had to make 3 password attempts: CANNES!
I would love it if I were somehow able to one day attend Cannes, but it’s not like I have a well written, soon to be highly acclaimed screenplay sitting on my desk at home. Nor do I have an amazing, gut-wrenching movie just chilling on my laptop’s hard drive. So, I must lurk the interwebs and drool over Getty images.
** Side note** Let’s remember to circle back to the awesome FX miniseries about the Getty family/grandson kidnapping called TRUST later.
So, as I was saying, I should be at Cannes, but instead, I am sitting in my office on JHU’s Homewood campus, staring out the window at the crappy, dreary weather. Life is not fair.
So far, my hands down favorite look from Cannes is Thandie Newton’s Star Wars dress at the film’s premiere at the festival.
In all honesty, the entire crew polished up real nice for the red carpet.
Now on to the other show stoppers at Cannes.
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? Continue reading “We’re all going to die, so let’s go shopping!”
Despite the fact that September, not only ushers in the lusciousness of Fall but also the manic ditzy nightmare siren of hurricane season, I am still all about it. Move over brutal heat waves! Slide to the left torrid humidity! Piss off mosquitoes! The grown folks are talking now and Madame Autumn is holding court.
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. Continue reading “Perpetual WCW, Rihanna, Takes a Solo Flight in Harper’s Bazaar”
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. Continue reading “Elie Saab Spring 2017 Couture”
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. Continue reading “Glutton for Punishment: 10 Things I Want from the Anthropologie Fall Collection”
