  • Let Your Scarf Do The Talking


    Whenever you can’t figure out what to wear, here’s my tip: just wear a scarf. I’m not talking about those sad little limp version heaped up near the cash registers at H&M. The ideal scarf has a bit of heft and meat on its bones. The bigger, the badder, the bolder = the better. The simple […]

  • My Kitty Sweater is Checking You Out


    Fine, winter. I get your point. You started off as just a wardrobe conundrum, but now you’ve morphed into a veritable closet wasteland. When temperatures dip below 0, there is some hardcore truth to the phrase, “I have nothing to wear.” So be it. Doesn’t mean I’m not going to have fun. Today’s outfit inspiration (which I wore last […]

  • 10 Oscar Gowns, 10 Opinions: Red Carpet Round-Up


    Last night’s Oscar looks were among the most boring in recent memory — and that’s saying A LOT. I suppose it’s only fitting that the lukewarm Fashion Week is so closely followed by a ho-hum Oscar red carpet. As the New York Times noted, the current zeitgeist has no zeitgeist. (If this were the Matrix, […]

  • H&M is Going Totally 80s

    Happy Friday! Welcome back to Catalog Police, my weekly review of the latest catalogs and the horrors they contain. Today, we’re looking at H&M’s Spring/Summer 2015 lookbook. It was fairly sparse — just a few looks — but the few outfits displayed were heavy-handed on kitsch and 80s references, as well as kooky prints like sequined palm […]

  • Perfect Pasta: No Recipe Needed


    I’ll admit it — I hesitated to include a cooking feature on this blog for fear of veering too far away from fashion. But style and cooking are symbiotic — both are easily malleable to suit your personal tastes and both are skills that can be learned with diligence and practice. And the ultimate goal in […]

  • The Latest Closet Update


    Like most New Yorkers, my husband and I feel like we never have enough space. Half of my wardrobe is vacuum-sealed under the bed. Our nightstand holds alarm clocks, phone charging docks, 7 types of foot creams and a dozen books. Our crammed coffee table doubles as nail polish and cosmetics storage. Every square inch of our […]

  • Stripes in the Snow


    This past weekend, Fashion Week was in full swing. It’s a tough occasion to dress for — but in all honesty, dressing for snow is always more difficult. This outfit is a prime example of the necessary evil that is layering. My top half is shielded by a turtleneck underneath a Moroccan blouse. (The striped blouse was last […]

  • Catalog Police: Revolve Spring 2015


    The last time I reviewed a Revolve catalog, I brutally critiqued the brand for shooting their hyper-sexualized catalog using a high school as a backdrop. It was tasteless in a creepy, “barely legal” way. The company’s spring lookbook just dropped, and there’s some good news: The witty, prolific Twitter star, Chrissy Teigen, is the model! Unfortunately, the clothes […]

  • Fashion Inspiration: Garance Doré’s Illustrations


    Wardrobe inspiration can feel hard to come by this time of year. February is always the worst month — SAD descends, zapping outfit ideas and breaking your spirit. You forget the last time you felt sun — or fun. However, Fashion Week is upon us. Soon, we’ll be inundated in street style slideshows and fashion […]
