Greetings dear readers! It's been far too long since my posts hit your collective radar, so here goes: the first post of 2013! It's Wednesday, so it's time for the Look of the Week. As with many prior Looks of the Week, I just couldn't narrow my choice to one.... Continue reading

The Golden Globes are truly my favorite awards show, bringing the best of the TV and Movie worlds together into one festive night. Heck, I even wrote a column that day about the styles I was most looking forward to seeing. But it’s no coincidence that my review of the... Continue reading

During my Twelve Days of Holiday Style columns, I lauded the festive color that is crimson. While I didn’t see it too much during the Golden Globes, it’s been all over the red carpet all of a sudden. So much so that I couldn’t select just one look of the... Continue reading

Tonight, tonight, the Golden Globes are tonight! True, the Oscars are the year’s red carpet gold standard. But the Globes are my style Super Bowl, bringing together all of my favorite TV and movie stars in one delicious evening. And, an award show that includes adult beverages can only lead...

Halfway through the Twelve Days of Holiday Style, we’ve already seen everything from sequins to LBDs with a twist to the penultimate holiday color, crimson. All inspired by Oscar de la Renta’s Pre-Fall 2012 Runway Show and all equally divine. Another common thread in the upcoming collection is fur: fur... Continue reading

Happy New Year readers! With the New Year comes new trends and with that - a continuation of IJC’s Twelve Days of Holiday Style. And just because the holidays have closed for another year doesn’t mean that the trends won’t carry forward into January and beyond. As mentioned in previous... Continue reading

For those who know me well, a little sparkle is a near daily part of my life. Brooches, accents on an item…but most especially sequins. I wasn’t nicknamed “sparkles” for nothing! But, as every savvy stylish gal knows, there’s a fine line between being tastefully sequined and Vegas-showgirl look-alike. Near... Continue reading

Crimson is one of those colors that dominates the holiday season: think poinsettias (the drink & the flower), decorations for the tree and over all kinds of apparel and accessories right now. Heck, even the Crimson Tide are in this year’s NCAA Football Championship. (Geaux Tigers!!) So, imagine my delight... Continue reading

Full disclosure: I’m normally not a fan of the LBD (or Little Black Dress for those not in the know). Like my style muse, Kate Spade, my personal motto in eveningwear (and in life) is “Live Colorfully”. Most especially in NYC, wearing some sort of color or pattern has set... Continue reading

In the past, I’ve selected numerous Red Carpet looks as IJC’s “Look of the Week”. Not entirely fair, I admit, as a celebrity’s red carpet experience is akin to an average girl’s wedding day. Full hair and make-up – and multiple consultations with their chosen gown designer to ensure the... Continue reading

Cream. Tan. Beige. Winter White. While some may poo-poo these hues as “non-colors” or boring neutrals, I can’t think of better shades to lighten up the dreary winter months. And dark-haired gals take note: these barely-there colors are the perfect contrast to brunette and black tresses. Now, I’ve been a... Continue reading

Ever since the Fall 2012 Pre-Shows debuted two weeks ago, I’m still dreaming of the magic that was Oscar de la Renta. There were many common themes interwoven into the collection and nearly all of them spoke to me – as I’m rounding out my Winter 2012 wardrobe, but especially... Continue reading

It’s almost shocking that Michelle Obama has not yet been a “Look of the Week” winner on IJC. Week in and week out, she continues to inspire with her looks from casual to formal – and I especially admire her loyalty to emerging, American designers. When Mrs. Obama dons one... Continue reading

It’s that time of the season that slips away more and more quickly each year. “The most wonderful time of the year”. The Holidays. For some reason, this year had most parties packed into last week and a gaping hole in this week’s social calendar. I’m exhausted still thinking about... Continue reading

Typically, when I have a crush, I savor spilling the beans to my select, trusted group of girlfriends. Like I’ve done this week. To a few of them. Repeatedly. But this particular crush, I’d love to share with the world. It’s a girl crush. (No Mom, this is not the... Continue reading

It’s that time of the week again…our celebrity Look of the Week! It may be Hump Day and a crappy, wet day in the Apple, but I am beyond inspired by this week’s honoree and ready to tackle some events of my own this evening. Our winner this week? Lea... Continue reading

In most things in life, being coined a stalker raises a negative connotation. Well, in everything except shopping! For those who read my latest “Staple of the Month” column, you’re fully aware that I’m a card carrying style stalker. And once I realized the deals that could be had with... Continue reading

Happy Monday all! It’s been some time since I’ve updated on adventures in my own closet, so here goes. Inspired by last week’s Look of the Week which featured black lace, I went shopping in my own closet and went straight for an old standby from H&M. I purchased this... Continue reading

Following my own advice and the current winter trend of brights, I present to you five gorgeous options all under $200. 1. French Connection, $199 on sale from $368: I... Continue reading

New York City has been fittingly branded as a style sea of black, especially in the winter. Most call it chic. I call it boooooriiiiiiing! Reversing back to last winter, I’d grown so bored by my own black and grey winter coats that I made myself a promise. A promise... Continue reading

With last week’s Thanksgiving holiday, the number of Hollywood events was lower than usual. So, I’m taking a step back to the American Music Awards for this week’s Look of the Week. Typically, the fashion at the AMAs and Grammys is more salacious than stylish. But this time, one headline-grabbing... Continue reading

I’m always keeping an eye open for the latest trends – wearable-beyond-one-season trends, that is. Lately, what’s really caught my eye, you may ask? Answer: finely pleated skirts in lengths both short and long. And proof that these aren’t a one season wonder? In my very own closet hangs one... Continue reading

Yes, it’s one of my favorite days of the year again! Cyber Monday shopping from my couch rocks: comfy location, you avoid the crowds and today, everyone can rack up some incredible deals. There are deals at internet retailers large and small today, but I’ve narrowed the lot down to... Continue reading

Yes, another blogging hiatus. Life is crazy, but no excuses. I’ve been digging through the past month’s style highs and lows and felt compelled to begin with one great event. Last month, my best NYC girlfriends planned an all out, crazy Jerseylicious bachelorette for our dear friend, Kari. The location:... Continue reading

With the arrival of a new month (albeit nearly three weeks ago!) it’s time for a new stylish wardrobe staple for September. Other than a few days, this year’s September weather has seemed cooler than most, so I’ve found myself digging out tights, light sweaters and boots much earlier than... Continue reading
