That time of year to get cozy, whether with hot chocolate, your boyfriend, or a cozy sweater, or maybe even your boyfriends sweater. This year is all about pattern and texture. A classic cable knit is always a timeless choice and if you choose to live dangerously there are plenty of gorgeous options. Complete the look with a hat or scarf on an exceptionally chilly day, or brave the elements and let your sweater do the talking.
The perfect suit. The perfect man. One easily complements the other and straying is strongly discouraged once you find what works for you. But how does one choose an ideal candidate? Coming in all shapes and sizes, it truly depends on fit and feel. Tailoring comes with the territory. A stitch here, a snip there, all in the name of perfection. Luckily once you find a match, it’s like the perfect handbag, it will be by your side for years to come and maybe even for a lifetime.

Spring is finally around the corner, so lets put away the winter gear and show off a little leg. The perfect combination of edgy, fun and sexy, for a girls night out on the town. Whether you are on the prowl, or simply out for a good time, you are bound to get more than one double take in this ensemble. Women will be green with envy (no ode to St. Patty’s day there), men will gravitate towards you and the rest is history. Ok, maybe I am getting away from myself, but why not? Such a fabulous entourage deserves the utmost attention, so grab your cocktail and go forth to dance the night away.

Imagine ALEXANDER WANG was reminiscent of red velvet cupcakes topped with cream cheese icing (think magnolia heaven) and CHANEL swirled with visions of cotton candy bliss. This is surely the stuff only dreams are made of. Like the collision of two parallel universes, only this time its fashion and gastronomy. I am tickled bubblegum pink with the thought. This is no joke, for those who experience gustatory synesthesia, the senses become blurred and words become associated with taste sensations. But we are not here to learn, and class in not in session. We are simply here to indulge our fashion senses and hopefully experience a little sensory overload ourselves.

Collaborations are like the ultimate power couple, think Beyonce And Jay-Z. They are an unstoppable pair, who have joined forces to take over the (fashion) world. Most recently mary katrantzou and current/elliot have teamed up, a duo sure to awaken our inner denimology. It’s like a brief love affair; it’s memorable, shocking and leaves us wanting for more. And just as we think nothing else could compare, the fashion world is set abuzz with the next hot mash up, satisfying our craving for a brief moment, only to throw our senses into disarray by selling out far too soon.
If your boyfriend is feeling distressed about what to buy for your birthday, as a surprise, or because he needs to figure out a way to say sorry, and fast, lucky for him – the answer is right under his nose, literally! Boyfriend denim is back, and with a vengeance. If you stored these bad boys, the time has come to dust them off and break them in all over again. Or, if you are like me, you refused to let go (because once you find a good thing, it becomes unreasonably difficult to part with).
One of the major trends for spring/summer ’13 is a blank canvas. White has never seemed so appealing. I adore all things white, in particular: towels, linens, furniture, china, I really could go on. It’s as though I’ve been hypnotized and I lose all sense of control. Is it the underlying connotation of purity that draws us to this color? Frankly, whenever I wear a white article of clothing, the only things attracted to it present themselves in the form of caffeinated beverages and organic matter. Still, I am relentless and refuse to banish these items from my wardrobe. Instead, I am now armed with tide-to-go and a slightly less discerning eye.
The third monday, of every January, of every year, for the rest of our lives? Have we been forced to live with such a curse till the end of our days? What have we, as a human race, done to deserve such an atrocity? But for now, enough with being so melodramatic. Surely, looking at such divine items could not possibly lead to the moody blues. Such an exquisite aray should only make us squeal with excitement. So go forth and shop, and never mind such silly stories that try to put a damper in our day.
This year I am on a mission to find the perfect parka. This item has been on my mind for several years, but this time it will not be forgotten or lost in my train of thought. The search has begun. This is officially the beginning of my quest throughout the stores of america, or should I say mecca, also known as the online shopping experience. Let the games begin, and may the best parka win!

Inspired by Glee, circa 2010, this is a man’s world, but it wouldn’t be nothin, nothin, without a woman or a girl. We often pay tribute to the women in our lives, but what about the men? Collages filled with gifts for ourselves, our sisters, best friends, and mothers; I felt it only appropriate we gave a little something back to the opposite sex. Whether it’s just because, or for a special occasion, these items are sure to bring a smile to their face. And if they don’t, thats what gift receipts are for.
