Beauty Supply: Lip Colors on Lids

For Fall 2014 it looks like our favorite lip colors migrate north, making lip colors on lids the easiest way to update your beauty routine. As seen on the New York runways the past few days, lip hued tints hit the lids and lash lines in all forms; from burgundy lids at Helmut Lang to plum colored, lower lash lines at Rachel Comey and soft pink surrounding the eyes at Suno. Who needs to wait until Fall to sport this look, your date will thank you if you opt for a burgundy lid vs a burgundy lip this Friday.

The Art of Céline Summer 2014

In fashion we are always making connections, connections between reality and fantasy, and often times, the connection between art and fashion. When I first saw the Céline Summer 2014 collection, I immediately fell in love with the bold brushstrokes of the prints because they felt familiar in some way. It wasn’t until recently that I made the connection between the Céline Summer 2014 collection and the abstract art of Pia Howell.

My Life in Navy Blue Coats: Part II

As I walk through the valley of the shadow of… Richard Serra exhibits… I wore my shorter navy blue coat of the season. Remember last week when we had 8+ inches of snow on the ground here in New York? Well yesterday, sans snow, I went for my shorter navy blue coat from Vince. Made of double-faced wool, this structured silhouette is the perfect length to just cover my butt, and the dropped shoulder allows for layering with chunky sleeved sweaters. Stop by tomorrow for more photos from the exhibit.

The Row Pre-Fall 2014

Exaggerated silhouettes in reach-out-and-touch-me fabrics, the ever so chic reinvention of the fanny pack and their use of Linda Rodin and Esther de Jong as models… I am nothing if not enchanted by the complex simplicity of The Row’s collection for Pre-Fall 2014.
