I am all about a powerful, red suit these days, no matter what the occasion. A red suit is the perfect way to stand out at a business meeting or at an industry event, and shows that you have confidence. And…who doesn’t want to stand out in a crowd? This red blazer jacket is vintage from my mother, and I like the militant details… like the gold buttons and the stiff mini collar. The jacket and pants don’t actually go together, but they sure look like they do! Together they create the perfect, cherry red suit. I’m all about creating my own suiting by pairing different blazers and trousers together because they’re unique and one-of-a-kind.  read more

Undone Suiting

Somedays, I just want to throw on a good suit and be done with it, you know? The only problem is that a suit would be way too fancy for my office. So, the next best thing? My take on a dressed down suit comprised of slouchy trousers, an open white button-down, and a vest in lieu of a blazer. I love how polished I felt (and look) in this outfit, and it’s definitely one I plan on recreating with more colorful separates in my closet.

Another thing I want to share with you guys is the NextRadio app. For those of you who know me or have been reading my blog for awhile, you know that I am a TV host that studied broadcasting in college and I have a penchant for anything entertainment: tv, movies, and radio. I am a radio junkie! Even with all the new streaming technologies where we can listen to whatever music we want whenever we want, I always find myself tuning in to my favorite radio stations. read more

I’ve been wanting to wear this full on orange look for awhile, but hadn’t quite found the right occasion. And then it came to me… Elaine Torres, my photographer, and I had been wanting to shoot some outfits at LACMA, and this was the first look that came to mind – it’s bold, quirky, and great for an evening of art and inspiration. I love art – in fact, I’ve written a few posts about my museum visits to Keith Haring and the Annenburg Space for Photography. And I like my outfits to be as eccentric as the exhibits I’m attending, make this orange fringe number the perfect choice! Also, it’s my second foray into the fringe trend, and I clearly have a thing for fringe skirts because I keep gravitating towards them! read more

Suits always feel like second skin to me. I’m a sucker for a good button-up, a well-fit blazer, and loose trousers. I grew up going to a private school from kindergarten until eighth grade, and we were required to wear a rotation of oxford shirts, polos, trousers, pleated skirts, ties and v-neck wool sweaters, and even though I was ecstatic when I got to start wearing my own clothes in high school, the prep school uniform still gave me a sense of security and nostalgia. read more
