Fall 2016 Accessory Trend: Talk to the Glove

Max Mara | Marc Jacobs | Chanel | Rodarte . Do you think of gloves as something your grandmother wore? I can tell you that as a mom, having the time to put on even basic gloves sometimes seem like a luxury! I urge you to use this trend to add a little fun, color and or sparkle into your life/wardrobe. While we were dating, Mr. Real Life Style bought me a pair of gold gloves I’d been coveting. That was 7 years ago and every time I pull them out I’m amazed at the compliments I receive and how “sparkly” …

Gucci | Chanel | Marni . Ahhh, the Renaissance: the time of  Shakespeare, fresco paintings, the Medici, and those short, puffy pants men used to wear over tights.

Fall 2016 Trend #2: Plaid Fad

Our Day at Barney’s in Chelsea

Barneys, what fashion dreams are made of… I think, actually I know, that all fashion people remember their first Barneys purchase. As well as their second, and maybe even their third. My first purchase was a magenta, mohair skirt from Mark Eisen. It was 1995 so give me a break, ok? My second was a more sensible khaki eye shadow from Nars, when Barneys was the only place you could get it. Both of these purchases were made at the original temple of style, the Barneys store in Chelsea. The Madison Avenue location had already opened when I arrived in …
