Saks Holiday ’18 Preview: Glitz And Glamour In A “Theater Of Dreams” Setting!

When I attended the recent Saks Fifth Avenue holiday preview, my eyes lit up like (you guessed it) holiday lights and I started to drool. The event was held at the Daytonian style Hudson Theater, the oldest theater on Broadway, in a quiet upstairs room usually used for private receptions and meet and greets. The official theme of the event…read more

The Best Part Of New York Fashion Week: Getting Glammed At Caravan Stylist Studio!

Forget the NYFW shows—they have became pretty unpredictable and I am so tired of getting “standing room” all the time! I do not think that Fashion Week will ever become what it once was when all the shows were under one roof at Bryant Park or Lincoln Center. These days you have to wear hiking boots instead of high heels…read more

Lividini & Company’s Holiday 2018 Preview: Viewing Vera Bradley, MCM, Sperry and more!

I always love to see what the Lividini & Company staff has up their sleeves during their previews. During the year they do seasonal previews for all their clients but in mid-July, influencers get to see all the clients in one place displaying their holiday goods. There was something for everyone from the most conservative to the most cutting edge.…read more

The Fun Shops On The Carnival Horizon: Shopping Experiences Taken To New Heights On The High Seas!

I recently got to climb on board the Horizon, the newest ship from Carnival, at Manhattan’s Pier 88 at Twelfth Avenue between 48th and 49th Streets. My visit was courtesy of Starboard Cruises who wanted to show off their wonderful two floors of “Fun Shops"--this is the largest aggregation of stores on any cruise ship and it is truly like…read more

Wolverine: Going The Extra “1000 Miles” For Their Old And New Fans Alike!

Last week I was lucky enough to go out on the terrace of Wolverine’s offices next to Carnegie Hall to check out both their winter and spring "stories." There was a sneak peek of simple but stunning distressed black leather sneaker called The Original 1000 Mile Sneaker that won't be available until Fall 2018 but the big news for Spring…read more

MCM Preview For Spring/Summer ‘18: They’re Rockin’ Some Bright Colors But Have Something For Everyone!

MCM is a fashion bag cult that started among jet setters visiting Munich hotspots circa 1976 and it has only grown from there. You might adore their sophisticated and timeless logo print leather but they have really branched out into an incredible amount of accessories (and not just classic satchel and toe handbags) in the past 15 or so years.…read more

I’m Loving The Latest Crocs Sandals And Their “Come As You Are” Campaign! It Is Another Big Win For This Leader In The Comfort Footwear Field!

I love that Crocs not only has some of the greatest comfort styles for summer--well, they are a WORLD-CLASS leader in comfort footwear so that goes without saying. But now they have a campaign that encourages youngsters to be true to themselves and learning self-acceptance. The legendary Drew Barrymore and pal John Cena are at the helm of this campaign!…read more

I’m Rockin’ Therafits For The Very First Time And I’m Lovin’ Them

It's no secret that women (including myself) cannot resist shoes and accessories and if they did not have to work, would probably be shopping for them 24/7! I like shoes and accessories even more than clothes--as your sizes do not change! There's no shame in shopping for shoes or thinking about them more than 15 hours per day, LOL! I love both…read more

I Love Lilly–And Here’s Why You Should, Too! (She’s Got The Prints To Die For!)

The Love, Lilly line takes pride in fun prints, classic lines (like sleeveless A-line dresses) and being made right here in the USA (Connecticut to be exact)! I was lucky enough to attend her Garden Party press preview directly across the street from the Empire State Building last week and all I could say was that I fell in love…read more

Lovin’ LaCoste For Spring/Summer 2017: They’re Not Just About Polo Shirts!

While LaCoste's crocodile polos are longtime legends (and I am simply mad for the polos with the GIANT crocs on them because they always make me chuckle especially on a child), this company known for high quality and durable fashions has wonderful accessories. Their handbags are classic and fashion-forward and I love the way they have so many compartments. They are…read more

The ribbon cutting in early October for the new Century 21 store in Albee Square was not only attended by the Gindi family who owns it but all of the stores employees (dressed elegantly in black).

It’s Time To Skinnydip–Skinnydip London, That Is!

It's great to find an accessories and tech peripheral site that has so many fun items that you do not know where to start.

A great thing about…read more


  The legendary NYFW tents are no longer. Many fashionistas, fashion press, buyers and any other Fashion Week guest most likely longs for the days of the gorgeous white tents in Bryant Park and then, more recently, in Lincoln Center. The dark and dreary Moynihan Station on West 33rd Street between Eighth and Ninth Avenues might be spacious, but it…read more

Fashion Week Came And Went Again–And It Was Great To Get A Sneak Peek At The Fall 2017 Styles!

While NYFW doesn't quite have the glitz and glamour that it once had prior to 10 years ago when it was still in Bryant Park, it's hard to resist going to see your favorite designers' latest collections and attending a press lounge or two. I only attended a few shows and lounges this year just because I am getting old…read more
