An open letter...

To the lady who decided on Friday night to go to the theatre......

Cute little black dress= good. Cute little black dress fringed with white cowboy fringe= BAD

Cute little black knit poncho= good. Cute little black poncho with white marabou feather trim= maybe you should think again.


As always, keep it simple and sexy,

You might actually want to look like Hello Kitty...

But in reality you should seriously stick to bows on headbands that do not resemble extra appendages. Ladies, if someone tells you your headband is twee, that does not make it cute. It means: "Please remove that God-awful thing and shove your mangled hair into a ponytail."

If you want to wear a headband, please follow the guidelines:

1. Wearing a headband if your hair is anything shorter than a bob, is redundant. Use styling serum. 

2. Anything that sticks out more than an inch from your head is considered socially unacceptable and distracting. Trust me, you don't want to be known as that girl.

3. Looking like Hello Kitty is for 2 year- olds. Not grown women. Should you want to look like that angelic kitty, paint some whiskers on your face and call it a day.

4. The thicker the headband the longer and fluffier the hair should be; think Brigitte Bardot.

5. Crazy headbands (anything with feathers or extra accoutrement) are acceptable only if you know the statement you are trying to make.

6. A little hairspray goes a long way.

and finally,

7. Bobbypinning your headband on defeats the purpose of wearing one.

Love always,

The Whole White After Labor Day Myth

It's that time of the year again. You know, when we all decide to make that awful error of wearing white after a certain time of the year. However this does not actually apply.
Most social circles would consider ivories and different shades of cream to be de riguer, not the faux pas you've been led to believe. 
In fact, this season sees designers mixing whimsical ivories and neutrals with rustic colors to create chic and timeless looks. Look into Bottega Veneta for more details, but they pretty much some it up.
Look, if you want to wear white, go with a more muted shade of it. Unless you're a bride, then wear whatever the hell you want. :P

Lots of Love,

Just a Hint...

If you have no chest, don't wear a strapless dress. And if you do, for God's sake don't wrap an ugly shawl around it to keep it up by tying it under your boobs a la Britney circa "Baby One More Time."

Hello Everyone!

I am starting a fashion blog as of today. Some people have asked why I have not written one until now, and truthfully I just have never had time. But since I am so outspoken about fashion and in the industry, here goes.

I will be publishing a new blog at least once a week if not more, and as always if you have questions or comments please feel free to remark, just keep it nice. I look forward to hearing from all of you,
