Oh, the winter blues. They’re a snooze, aren’t they? It’s bitter cold out, and you find yourself zipping up puffer coat after puffer coat, bundled like the Michelan Man, just to stay warm. I know. I’m with ya.
You’ve failed and you’ve got to start over. You think it’s the end of the world, right? There’s that sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach. You think you’re the only one out there. You feel like everyone knows, and you won’t be respected. But you know what you’re actually wrong about? That very thought.
Oh, hey there, sequined superstars! We made it! “New Year, New You,” right? Scratch that, babes. I want you to take on this year as the same, you! Why? Because you’re already fabulous, and I don’t want you to forget that. No need for a “new you.” But, let’s kick up our heels a bit shall we? Throw some glitter in the the air, like ya just don’t care. I want you to take time, and actually celebrate your life.
When Grant and I met, we dated long distance for several years. He lived in Kentucky, and I was here in NYC. I would visit his hometown in Kentucky on the weekends. One day, as he drove me around, I noticed a sign that said Versailles. “Hey, you brought me to France,” I teased. Little did I realize, that there’s a Versailles in Kentucky too. I was caught in a daydream, as we drove. Wouldn’t it be oh-so-lovely to visit Versailles in France together one day? It would be quite the dream.
This past Sunday, we celebrated the first day of Spring, with a forecast of snow. Lovely, right? However the sun was shining throughout the weekend, and so I definitely made the most of it. Last week, was crazy with my work schedule, but we did attend a fab magazine launch party for Reserved Magazine x J. Elster pop-up shop. It was hosted by super model and photographer Helena Christensen, model and actress, Brooke Shields, along with film maker and designer Jennifer Elster. I promised myself that I’d hibernate over the weekend, in hopes of getting lots of sleep, a few great workouts, and some cleaning accomplished. Quite the opposite of my plans, it was a jam packed weekend, but full of fun.

Color combinations can be tricky, especially when piecing together your look. I don’t know about you, but I often have moments of hesitation. Does this color really work with this one? Ok, I’m not so sure, but can I make it work? When I’m creating my looks I stick to a few rules. Am I using a cool color palette or warm palette? Does the color look good with a contrasting hue, such as black? I try different options to see if they work, and usually photograph them as I go along. I always trust photos instead of my eyes.
Hello Valentines! The holiday of hearts is just 2 weeks away, and I’ve been busy styling a few looks to inspire your fancy night out with your beau, your bestie, or both! Typically I’d sport a little red cocktail dress for a night out, but I’ve got a new look for you. Meet the little red dress’s sassier, and older sister.
Dearest snow storm Jonas. You were soft, sweet and romantic when it all started. I gradually watched you fall, piece by piece, and flake by flake until you became larger than life. You blew in, with a force so mighty, you took over all of New York City. You were cold and ugly. You sent shivers down my spine, and you left it all on the streets. You forced me into my ugly puffer coat, and boring, flat rain boots, which you know I can’t stand. I spent a full day cooped up inside my home, leaving my sequins and party dresses behind, locked in the darkness of my closet. But I’ve got something to tell you, sir Jonas. We. Are. Over.
