One Woman One Style – Day Kornbluth

 

Day Kornbluth on flair

 

I’m so excited to announce that my first article for Flair Magazine’s feature of “One Woman One Style” series is finally out! The magazine asked me to scout for stylish New Yorkers that not only had a great sense of style in their closet, but in their home as well.

I immediately thought of one of my clients, Day Kornbluth of One Kings Lane, who is always effortlessly put together—despite being a new mom—and has the best taste in home style. It doesn’t hurt that she’s one of the first employees of what’s become one of the most influential resources in home decor, One Kings Lane.

Check it out and stay tuned for another stylish New Yorker (and one of my favorite designers!) to be featured soon.

I know you’ve missed my outfit posts, but between the long winter of little daylight, moving to my new Brooklyn condo and lots of busy styling projects lately, I haven’t had much time. Though, I couldn’t resist sharing a little color just as spring feels like it’s right around the corner.

Speaking of pops of color and being on the go, I was selected to be the proud owner of this on trend oxblood and navy Cambridge Satchel Co. bag while attending the IFB conference recently. It’s the perfect bag for my busy life—running around the city with my iPad in tow and then for events in the evenings, it becomes a great clutch. It even was just spotted on Hannah Horvath on the show Girls on Sunday night, so I’m in good company with loving this bag.

STYLIST TIP: Turn your daytime shoulder bag into an instant evening clutch by removing or tucking in the strap. The more over-sized the better this season!

This weekend it was time to spring forward with our clocks and it finally felt like the beginning of spring with the first sitings of crocuses blooming and New Yorkers outside smiling.

I finally had a chance to utilize my membership to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. While there wasn’t much blossoming just yet—and still snow on the ground, there were plenty of indoor gardens that made us in the mood for the season to arrive.

It was also a great excuse to break out my new Christian Siriano brogues that I’ve been drooling over since they strutted on the runway back in September.

STYLIST TIP: When incorporating this season’s “sorbet color” trend in your wardrobe, try mixing it with some edgier pieces for a fresher look that’s more sophisticated than sweet.

A Much Needed Pampered Evening

IMG_6977

Aside from Emily’s necklace design from E.Kammeyer that I was coveting last night (and it sadly wasn’t for sale just yet), the first thing I noticed was how gorgeous her skin looked at her trunk show event at Amore Pacific in SoHo. She boasted that after just one facial and using some of their products, she didn’t even need to wear makeup. Okay, this girl is normally gorgeous, but I was sold.

Lucky for me, this was a night of pampering for all, so I got to get my own mini facial after shopping and sipping some champagne.

I was a little overwhelmed at first by all of the products that all sounded like they were mysterious miracles from exotic ingredients. My facialist, Lisa, explained every step of the process as she used products with Asian botanicals that left my skin feeling clean and so soft.

I was apprehensive after I’ve been breaking out like crazy from the Clarisonic (which I was told is normal??), so I was pleasantly surprised when she used an exfoliating product that didn’t have the harsh abrasiveness that most do. Instead the green tea leaf extract—which they grow on their own green tea island (!!)—foamed so nicely as she massaged it on my face that I nearly fell asleep after my exhausting week of styling. Yes, it was only Tuesday.

I was so relaxed after my mini-facial that I was ready to go home and pass out, so I hardly got a chance to mingle with some of my favorites like Stephanie of NY Fashion Hunter that attended the event.

It was probably for the best, because I needed to get out of there before I bought all of the E.Kammeyer new 18kt gold tassel bracelets in the fun spring colors and all of the Amore Pacific natural wonder facial products like the foundation in 104 that looked and felt amazing on me (see above with Carla Moy after her brow treatment and my mini-facial).

Of course, that is until I go back for a full facial one day soon.

My Last Name in German

Screen Shot 2013-03-04 at 11.44.48 PM

When the popular magazine in Germany called FLAIR asked me to be a contributing editor, I jumped on the opportunity, but after I cautioned them that the only thing I know in German is my last name “Teich” (it means “pond” in case you were wondering).

Luckily, they were cool with everything being written in my native tongue and you will be able to see my contributions soon enough.

In the meantime, check out how fun this magazine is online—I love how they focus on both fashion and home together, which are my two loves in styling!
