Tres Dope: The Oversized Coat Trend
It’s finally getting cold in LA. Head over to Tres Dope to see why I want to essentially wrap myself in a big blanket.
Giving the Slip (Dress)
Is it a dress, or is it lingerie? Do I care? The slip dress is something I could so easily make fun of (and sometimes do). But I won’t. Because what could possibly be more comfortable than wearing a loose whisper of silk, satin, or some other delicate material when it’s time to go out […]
Fall Staple: The Leather Skirt
High-waisted, pencil, A-line, midi, mini–this fall, we’re loving it all. In leather, that is. We’ve already established that leather details are in this season (as if they were ever really out), and while the leather coat is a timeless staple, this season, it’s all about the leather skirt. A soft, supple, yet sturdy leather skirt […]
Ribbed Knitwear: Another Thing You Need
As I head off to Michigan tonight for some family time, I can’t help but smile as I look at the weather forecast, which predicts cooler temperatures just for this weekend. It’s 93 degrees in southeast Michigan as I write this, but they know I’m coming, and they know I’m packing my rolling bag with […]
I’m Loving: Orange Details (And Neon Lips!)
The coral trend of seasons past has gone one step further, entering orangey-red (OK, sometimes all-out orange) territory. This was evident in the neon lips that were all over the runways at New York Fashion Week. And I love it. I have pale skin, and bright colors can sometimes wash me out. But the orange-red […]
Pale Pink is the New Mint
I know everyone keeps talking up white (and judging from New York Fashion Week, that isn’t likely to change for Spring), but I’m more interested in the powder puff pink that’s stepping out this season. As predicted on the runways in January, pale pink coats, sweaters, trousers, and loafers are evidence that this Fall everyone’s […]
You’re a Few Stripes Short of a Plaid, Windowpane
Windowpane print, what are you? Everywhere. You’re everywhere. Spring’s trend transitions into Fall with thick sweaters, chic trousers, and more. Go for dark, rich colors like navy, hunter green, and red. (PS–This is actually a great way to try the navy and black trend).

On Color: Are there any rules anymore?
There was apparently a time when black and brown couldn’t be worn together, but that’s ancient history. The past two years, red and pink were everywhere together, longtime feuding members of the same color family that were blissfully united. And people have been breaking the “no white after labor day” rule for a while, […]
Zara outerwear makes me wish LA would get cold.
I miss cold weather only because I miss all the coats I could be stocking up on right now. With a good coat and a great pair of boots, it doesn’t even really matter (too much) what you have on underneath. It could be a Hanes tee and jeans, but your flawless wool coat, statement […]
