Charlotte Ronson Spring/Summer 2013

(3) Comments | Posted September 17, 2012 | 11:58 AM

Sometimes saying a collection is "completely wearable" is the kiss of death. It typically implies the clothes are basic, pedestrian, and nothing special. But when I tell you that the Charlotte Ronson Spring/Summer 2013 collection was "completely wearable," it's because I'd like nothing more than to fill my closet with...

2012-05-13-ps_2012_05_10___19_51_22.jpgI love my Mother.

She's creative, funny, talented, quirky... She's been the message of many of my poems, the person I always think to call first when I have good news or a bad day, the person who has always encouraged me to follow my...

If you're unbendingly religious to the point you refuse evolution as a concept, this is not the play for you. If you have no sense of humor or can't handle religious humor, this is not the play for you. If you're against gay...

Hey You, with the Company: Hire Me!

(5) Comments | Posted September 30, 2009 | 2:47 PM

In an age beset by financial difficulties, hundreds of thousands of people find themselves out of work. And I, being one to follow a trend, am no different.

Having been laid off one week after my company's holiday party and one week before Christmas, (classy timing), I initially relished...

Andy & Debb Don't Disappoint

(1) Comments | Posted September 15, 2009 | 6:45 PM

Yet another season of amazingly tailored, absolutely wearable pieces from Andy & Debb. With Mad Men-esq high-waisted skirts and pants, topped off with ladylike curvilinear blouses and jackets played up the circular inspiration that ran throughout the entire collection.

Yet Another Bullseye

2009-08-05-rodarte_ss09_runway1.jpgKate and Laura Mulleavy, they of the drool-worthy designer duds that are heartbreakingly more than an average New Yorker's rent, are finally taking pity on the poor mortals that worship their clothes from afar by teaming up with Target.

Losing It with Andy & Debb at Fashion Week

(2) Comments | Posted February 23, 2009 | 3:05 PM

You always remember your first time. You remember what you were wearing, the song that was playing, even that intense excitement right before it started. And I'm glad to call Andy & Debb my first... time sitting in the front row.

As if the sheer excitement of sitting front row...

Charlotte Ronson; Something Worth Gossiping About

As celebrity obsessed as people are, with the murmurs of "will or won't she be there" of the "are they really a couple" couple, there was only one thing that could silence the buzzing gossip in the Charlotte Ronson show: an amazing collection....

2009-02-13-JillianLewis6.jpgWhile many may remember Jillian Lewis as one of the finalists on season four of the reality TV show Project Runway, her virgin showcase has converted many skeptics into Jillianites. From the hand-woven nubby knit sweaters, headbands and dresses, to the paneled leggings and...

While the economy may be in an official recession and fast fashion more popular than ever, I beg of you, my fellow fashionistas and fashionistos, rise up with me and boycott the soulless polyester strewn hole that is Forever 21.

2008-11-25-20071201015559_621blackfriday_lede2.jpgI don't come from a family of traditions. Growing up Jewish-ish, we often forgot to light the candles on the menorah for Hanukkah, I would receive one big gift instead of the traditional eight little ones, and we decorated our completely secular Christmas tree with...

Target and Alexander McQueen, Pinch Me I'm Dreaming!

I've never hidden the fact that I am an uber fan of Target's "Go International" line. On the Sunday the new collection drops I am there, 9 am, ready to shove any other thrifty fashionistas out of the way. This never happens, as the other thrifty fashionistas who live in...

The date is looming in everyone's mind, somehow those months of planning have passed like TiVoed commercials, and one of the biggest decisions of the year is almost at hand; what will you decide... to wear for Halloween this year?

While most people are feeling the economic pinch and rearing in their spending, Sean "Diddy" Combs showed that he had money to spare with his most recent purchase of Enyce from Liz Claiborne Inc. for $20 million.

Happy Birthday To Me

On Sunday, October 5th, I will turn 24. Not a particularly remarkable age- I can already legally drive, vote, drink and all those other goodies that come with turning specific ages. Not yet a quarter century, I have no reason to bemoan my age nor really celebrate it.

I realize that as big as Manhattan can seem at times (Walk ten blocks? Are you kidding? Let's grab a cab...), it really is a tiny island. And with New York City being as small as it is, you're bound to run into people you know. Some you may want...

Best Week Ever (Thus Far at Least)

(5) Comments | Posted September 17, 2008 | 1:35 PM

I always try to set high goals for myself. Last season, during Fall Fashion Week, I attended only one show -- Baby Phat. And while it was fun and exciting, (considering it was my first "real" fashion show), I desperately wanted to attend a show in the Bryant Park tents....
