This is just a quick post to say that if you live in or around NYC, there’s going to be an exhibit of 80 works by local artists (including me) at the National Arts Club, which is located at 15 Gramercy Park South. The exhibit is being organized by a group called the Gramercy Neighborhood […]

At this year’s NYFW, Marc Jacobs didn’t disappoint with a catwalk full of 1940s-era glam, from pencil skirts to fur stoles to even a few menswear inspired pieces. The clothes in many cases were Dita Von Teese-esque, that is to say covered up old Hollywood sexy, and in some cases with modern updates like a […]

Happy Sunday everyone, and hope everyone had a great Christmas or Hanukkah or both. Christmas was nice for me (lots of family stuff with my husband) but the time to wind down afterwards was what I really appreciated. More time to paint–yay. And I got to do so with new watercolor paints and watercolor pencils and […]

Before I get started talking about Bora Jewelry, I just want to say that if you are the kind of person who can resist the temptation to buy things for yourself when doing holiday shopping, then hats off to you. I on the other hand, well… I haven’t quite succeeded. It was last week when […]

  Winter might not be here officially, but with the holiday shopping frenzy having already begun and with temperatures that have steadily been in the 30s and 40s (at least in NYC), it sure does feel like Old Man Winter is here. Now for me, whenever winter first starts, there’s always a period where I […]

First a little background for this illustration, which is also my first blog post since before Sandy: I lost power for a week and when I finally got it back, was too swamped with catching up on work and checking on family members to do updates. With a little time behind me though, I’m grateful […]

Well, as anyone who reads fashion magazines or blogs knows by now, the color oxblood is really having a moment. From hats to shoes to lipstick to tights, this rich and natural looking shade of burgundy seems to be everywhere… and you certainly won’t hear me complaining about that. In fact, the item you see […]

  Normally I wouldn’t even dignify the old “blondes have more fun” line, but I have to admit, in every pic I’ve seen of Michigan-based blogger and blonde Andrea Kerbusky, she definitely looks like she’s having a ball. And while every outfit she’s worn appears effortlessly chic, from a swingy black mini dress with fuchsia […]

Well as you may already know if you saw my last illustration post, I’ve been very inspired by Betsey Johnson’s NYFW Spring 2013 collection. She’s really stayed true to her code of making bright-colored, flirty, ultra-feminine pieces (and without being overly cutesie) and one of my faves from the runway was the outfit you see pictured […]

Well, at this point Fashion Week has come and gone, a whirlwind of runway shows, parties and promotions and of course journalists and bloggers scrambling to capture as many moments of it as possible. Of course with everyone constantly snapping away and updating Intagrams and Tumblrs and tweeting their critiques, it’s hard to focus on […]

I’m not going to lie. I used to hate sneakers, and we’re not talking casual hatred here. I mean loathe with disgust–I refused to wear them even as a kid because I thought they made me look like, well, a kid. Specifically a babyish one who was unable to sneak out in her mother’s heels […]

  I promised myself after a recent shopping spree (Modcloth, you vile temptress!) that I would not buy any more clothes for a while. And so far I’m actually sticking to it. But the only reason for that I think is that I already have a couple of very cute LWDs (little white dresses!), that […]
