Seeing Spots

Leopard print.  Love it or hate it, it has been around for a long time and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon.  I was wearing leopard print ballet flats yesterday with a black dress when a woman commented to me that she thinks leopard print is tacky.  While I agree that it … Continue reading

Rock the Lens

Rock the Lens

I spent last weekend on a sunglasses expedition with my husband.  We were looking for the perfect pair of summer shades (I guess we are already in vacation mind-set!).    I have always favored huge frames.  When it comes to sunglasses, my style icons are Iris Apfel and Joy Venturini Bianchi–these silver foxes know how … Continue reading

Muffy listed Kiel James Patrick as one of the quality “Preppy Companies on My Radar”.  I had never heard of Kiel James Patrick before, so I had to take a … Continue reading

Miranda Priestly from “Devil Wears Prada” is my all-time-favorite movie character.   I was ecstatic when I learned that Lauren Weisberger is working on writing a sequel to the “Devil Wears Prada”, called “Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns”, due out in June 2013.  Both Meryl Streep and Emily Blunt have said in recent interviews that … Continue reading
