Red is Rad
Red has long been the color of desire, passion, love and the packaging of my signature scent Gucci Rush. This fall, red is spicing up everything from clothing to accessories. Here are my fave items in this sassy color. 1) Drome Shearling Coat 2) LNA Double Zip Pocket Tee 3) Miansai by Michael Saiger Bracelet 4) Express Columnist Pant 5) Native Union Moshi Moshi Retro POP Handset for iPhone ...
What the Frock to Wear: Fall BBQ
I’m headed to a BBQ tomorrow afternoon. It’s supposed to be the party of the year (or so I think). The weather is going to be perfect for grilling up dogs and burgers and watching some great football. What is a girl to wear?

Play Up Plaid
It finally feels like fall in the District. The leaves are changing and it was a blustery morning. That walk to the bus was fah-reezing. That means it’s a great time to whip out a warm plaid shirt to run around Bethesda Row or to wear on a shopping trip to Georgetown. How would I wear plaid? With lots of shiny baubles of course! Zara Plaid Shirt/BaubleBar Chevron Necklace Alexis Bittar...
Pretty in Purple
I got to thinking about how much I love purple as I chowed down on an entire sleeve of grape Hi-Chew candies last night. The color represents royalty and most importantly some really great fashion. Here are some of my favorite purple pieces. How are you wearing purple this fall? 1) Ramy Brook Marcie Dress 2) Ray-Ban Aviators 3) BCBG Drea Top 4) Hi-Chew Grape Candy (I’m addicted!) 5)...
Weekend Recap: Rock This Frock Visits NYC
This weekend’s road trip to NYC, my former home, was a success! I had the chance to spend time with my amazing friends (one that traveled all the way from Hong Kong) and shop at some of my favorite stores in SoHo. What were my shopping purchases? I managed to pick up a beautiful Alexis Bittar ring (drooool…have you seen the entire Miss Havisham collection??). Each of his pieces are a...
I have this cute polka dot top from J.Crew from about two years ago. I couldn’t bear to part with it, so I decided to go shopping in my own closet to see what outfit I could come up with using the top. Here is the end result. What do you think? Don’t forget, sometimes the best finds are already in your own closet. 1) Ann Taylor LOFT Cardigan 2) J.Crew Polka Dot Shell 3) J.Crew Skinny...
What the Frock to Wear: Road Trip
This morning, I’m jumping on a bus headed to NYC. I’ve got my MacBook, box set of The Wire (can’t believe I’m just getting to this now!), a cozy scarf and my large Dunkin’ Donuts coffee (I’m on a first name basis with my local store). Here’s a few things I suggest wearing (and bringing) on a little road trip! To me, comfort is the key. J.Crew Cashmere...
I Dream of Sparkles
This image from Miu Miu’s Autum/Winter 2011 campaign, shot by Bruce Weber, has me dreaming of sparkles. I want to surround myself with every pair of shoes from this collection in every single color available. They’re simple, sparkly, stunning and of course, expensive. Last week, I stumbled on a few pairs of shoes that are similar (and not as expensive). Alas, we can all have the...
Once in a while you happen upon an accessory that you MUST plan an entire outfit around. My once in a while happened last week when I was running around looking for black tights. I ran into Forever21, and there on the table was this gorgeous bracelet that made me stop in my tracks. Of course, I bought it (the grand total was $8) and immediately began to think about all the amazing frocks I...
Tied With a Bow
Recently, I’ve become obsessed with secretary blouses or anything resembling one. Everyone from DVF to J.Crew have included them in stores this fall. Tory Burch even has a Bow Blouse Shop online. They’re great to pair with jeans for a casual Friday or to wear to a work meeting with trousers. Here are just a few I’m lusting after and how I would style one for a casual fall day. ...
Paris is one of my favorite cities in the world. Nothing is more beautiful than the streets of the Marais and Montmartre, except for the fashion. This year, Paris Fashion Week brought us so many dazzling collections. Most notably, the otherworldly experiences Chanel and Alexander McQueen created for their audience. Here are my picks for most stunning frocks. What are your faves? Alexander...
Head Over Heels for Helmut
If you’ve ever tried on any piece of clothing from Helmut Lang you know exactly what I’m about to say. The clothing is clingy in all the right places and the draping (oh the draping!) makes the pieces sleek and chic. I was thinking about how much I love the Helmut dresses I own. This made me go back and take a closer look at his collection for Spring 2012. I already have a running...
Dreaming of Green
The color green represents many different things to different cultures and time periods. To me it means classy, chic and Gucci Fall 2011. Green has been my favorite color for as long as I can remember. I’m so excited to see it pop up in many of the fall collections. Here is a look at a few amazing green frocks and baubles I’m pining over. Are you wearing Green this season? 1) Trend...
Wonderful World of Warhol
My parents introduced me to the art of Andy Warhol at a very young age. We visited the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh for one of his exhibits many years ago. After the tour, my sister and I were able to create silk screen paintings just as Warhol did (obvi not as good as his creations). I’ve been fascinated with his style ever since that day. So, of course, I made my way to the Andy...
It’s no secret that I have a small obsession with J.Crew. I probably spend more hours in their store than in my apartment. They are my go-to for many of my staples and accessories. I’ve enjoyed seeing the brand flourish over the last few years. I love that their creative director, Jenna Lyons, has a voice and connects directly with consumers via “Jenna’s Picks.” She...
Clearly my people know fashion. Here is a look at my fave frocks from Milan Fashion Week. From Gucci to Versace and art deco dresses to fringe, the designers really outdid themselves this year! Gucci/Fendi/Dolce & Gabanna/Versace/Etro Photos Via: The Cut
Pink Red Orange
I came across this amazing image of Dree Hemingway donning pink and orange with a fabulous fur vest last year and vowed I’d work something like this into my closet this winter. More recently, pink, red and orange combos seem to be popping up everywhere. Take a look at some others who’ve been rocking these colors. J.Crew/DKNY/Emma Stone in Giambattista Valli/Zooey Deschanel...
Polka dots are everywhere this season, from Stella McCartney to Zara. Here is a look at my fave polka dot picks! Ivanka Trump Chalta Heel/Wolford Bonny Dots Tights/Zara Polka Dot Blouse Stella McCartney Polka Dot Sheer Knit Dress/Zara Polka Dot Dress Anthropologie Flipped Dots Cardigan
BAH-NANAS...Rachel Zoe Spring 2012
I fell in love with her style when she dressed Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Richie many years ago (you know you did, too). I never miss an episode of her show and watch it on repeat on DVR. I fell even more in love when I laid eyes on her Fall 2011 collection. And now she’s outdone herself with her collection for Spring 2012. It’s only fall and all I want to do is go shopping for warm...
In the Mood
There is a lot of shopping to be had in the District over the next two weeks between DC Fashion Week, All Access Fashion, District Sample Sale and Bethesda Row Boutique Week. Make yourself a mood board before you go crazy with all the winter wardrobe shopping, especially if you’re a fashion magazine junkie like me. Take all those torn pages you’ve got stuffed in a binder (secretly...
