Love to live, live to learn, learn to love.
Last September, my sister Courtney had the most beautiful wedding I have ever been to. The ceremony took place outside in Fort Tryon Park in NYC, overlooking the Hudson River. Her ethereal gown, designed by Sarah Seven, was just what I had always imagined her wearing. As Maid of Honor, I ended up picking out a corresponding one-off dress from a lower east side boutique. Sarah Seven features a...
Ask yourself, Are you sure this world is for you? And are you sure you are the...– Karl Lagerfeld (I cut this out of a magazine and taped it to my mirror 3 years ago as a reminder to stay strong in a tough industry)
A Denim Evolution
Fitting denim has its perks- I never have to wonder what silhouette works best for my body type, I know most of the brands’ fit models (e.g. their overall fit) and I’m familiar with how different washes and fabrics affect sizing. Since the fashion industry runs seasons ahead of the rest of the public, I also see denim trends months (or even a year!) in advance. This is both awesome...
Fashionable Ginger Candy
Are Chimes Ginger Chews the new coconut water? Just like Vita Coco was 2 years ago, these little candies seem to be all over the fashion industry recently- models, designers, even my bookers are hooked! I’m excited because they’re vegan, all natural and preservative free. (My fave is mango- flavored with real juice). The ginger also serves as a little energy boost when I start to fade...
NY Gets Vegucated!
Herbivores grab the nearest carnivore and get ready to hit the red carpet! The long awaited Vegan Documentary, Vegucated, premiers Thursday at Chelsea’s SVA Theater in Manhattan. This is the movie’s first stop on the “Let’s Get America Vegucated!” nationwide tour. I’m looking forward to Vegucated’s fresh perspective on meat-lovers’ paths to...

Sleeps With Wieners
Yes, it’s true. As a volunteer with Dachshund Rescue of North America I always have at least one weenie dog in the bed with me, which is why my mom so lovingly gave me pillow cases with the aforementioned title embroidered on them. I recently took a sleep quiz on Dr. Oz’s new medically based beauty website YouBeauty and the quiz suggested I kick the dachshund(s) out of bed in order to...
DIY Denim Bracelets
This year, Fashion’s Night Out was kind of a bust- over crowded, somewhat dangerous at times (if you were in Soho then you understand!) and definitely not as fashionable as it has been in years past. Despite that, I managed to stumble upon a few fun activities like the accessory station at Madewell on 5th Ave. The girls from Honestly WTF helped shoppers turn scraps of denim into edgy (or...
