Dream Team

Don’t you love when 2 projects you love join forces? I was absolutely thrilled when I received these photos from Recollection.  Their last collection was the perfect marriage of ladylike elegance and exquisite tailoring and their Spring Summer 2012 collection has the same sense of tasteful glamour. The photos were taken by one of my favorite photographers, Jamie Beck of From Me To You.
Ms.Beck’s sharp eye for composition and excellent sense of light capture the beauty and mood of the collection. The photos are just amazing!

Staycation Staples

With temperatures reaching 100 degrees in NYC this week,  light and airy vacation style clothes are definitly in order!

Usually, you would think that tropical prints belong in Hawaii (or hipster bars in Williamsburg) but the sopisticated, modern cuts of Reyn Spooners latest collection for Opening Ceremony give the prints a classic, urban look.

Available at Opening Ceremony!

Governor’s Island Glamour

One of my favorite summer events in NYC is the Governor’s Island Jazz Age Lawn Party. I missed the first one this year because of my trip the Block Island but luckily one of my favorite photography bloggers, Jamie Beck of From Me To You posted these amazing photos!

Summertime Splurge

Getting dressed on a 90 degree morning in NYC is usally an excersize in tearing apart my closet to find what’s easy and light while still looking put togetether.  To stay cool and comfortable, my summer signature outfit is consists of  highwaisted shorts, a light cotton top, dressed up with big, bright accessories.  I’m thinking about picking up one of these Elva Fields handmade neckless’s to complement this signature summertime look.

Something New

A few months ago, a very good friend of mine asked me to design a headpiece for her to wear on her wedding day.  Although I was honored and completely flattered (as the bride is one of the most stylish girls I know). I was also a little bit terrified. What if she didn’t like it, what if she felt bad about telling me she didn’t like it, what if it broke, ect…After months of thought, I sent her few mock ups and luckily she loved them!

I used a mixture of vintage crystal buttons and Swarovski rhinestone links, sewing each one into double-faced cream satin ribbon.
