Screen Shot 2014-03-04 at 9.35.04 AM

As a native Long Islander—or before I shed my accent, Lawn Guylander—I love seeing when fashion and trends trickle out from the city to the ‘burbs where I grew up.

When the Long Island based publication, Milieu Magazine approached me to come up with an eco-friendly quiz for their readers, it was a no-brainer to mix my two passions together: fashion and going green.

Take this quiz and see just how eco-friendly you are!

Editor’s note: Polar Vortex Edition

STYLIST TIP: Pictures are always more flattering when shot from below eye-level. When your photos are taken from above, you can look shorter and wider. Not to mention, no one wants to see your roots. Apologies to whoever took this photo above, as I know it was rushed and much colder than it looks.

 

Editor’s note:

Polar vortexes! (or is it vortices?) The stomach flu! Working on the beach during record low temperatures! 3 spring fashion editorial shoots in 3 weeks! Oh my. This stylist can’t catch a break, but I haven’t forgotten about you. It seems like as the cold-weather storms have been brewing, as was everything else too.

 

Another reason for the brief hiatus was that I just signed with a stylist representative here in NYC called Agency Gerard. (I’m still with Anchor Artists for bookings in Boston). I feel honored to be among some of the industry’s top talent there and have been put to work updating my portfolio, which has kept me quite busy.

On other exciting and busy news, I’m now a contributor to Millieu Magazine, so I’ve been working on a piece for that every chance I get—which is mainly on my iPhone, on the subway.

Stay tuned for all of these updates and more to report here on DearAndi.com and don’t forget to write to dearandistyle@gmail.com with your fashion dilemmas.

Look, I’m on TV + The Secret To Easy Polished Hair

Someone recently told me that I always looked so polished (thank you!) and asked if I did my own hair and makeup for the morning show segments I’ve been on. Yes, I do. While I’m not big-time enough to have a personal hair and makeup artist to follow me around, I’ve learned quite a bit from the hair and makeup artists I work with and now have the tools to do it myself.

Not to get all infomercial on you, but you can too.

John_Frieda_Conair_curling_wand

Believe it or not, this little handy tool from John Frieda by Conair has changed the way I style my hair. It’s actually made my getting ready time so much quicker. I now don’t have to  blow dry my hair as often and no matter what it looks like dry, this curling wand smooths it out and gives it some life.

Before you tell me you easier said than done or oh, but I’ll burn myself (which is exactly what this newscaster said to me off air), try it.

Take sections of hair and wrap around the wand, away from your face. The trick is to not curl too close to your head and make sure to leave a bit of hair free at the bottom for a more modern look.

coconut_oil_for_hair

This is my other great hair day secret. Coconut oil isn’t only great for smoothies to help you digest, but I keep a bit of it in a jar in my shower for a once a week hair mask.

Use only a nickel size of oil and you may have to heat up the jar to get it less solid. Keep this in your hair for at least 10 minutes and up to even a day if your hair is extremely damaged and dry.

The first time I tried this, I actually went out to dinner with it in my hair pulled back and it looked like I hadn’t showered in days, so I don’t recommend doing it for that long unless you really need it or are not going out in public! You may have to shampoo a couple of times to get it out, but guarantee that it will be the best hair mask you’ve ever tried—and eaten. Have a great hair day every day now!

2014 is here! The editor of Milieu Magazine, Sara Fingerman, asked me at the end of 2013 to come up with a list of the top trends that we are likely to see this coming year.

While I can’t predict the future in fashion, I can share with you all of the trends that I saw on both the runways and in the streets during New York Fashion Week in September that should be a big hit this year, especially this coming spring, including crop tops, longer hems, and even headphones worn as an accessory.

Holiday Gift Guide For Guys (Look, I’m on TV!)

We’re going live in 3…2…and…

It was a near disaster when I was on camera the other morning to talk about my holiday gift guide picks for the season on FOX in Baltimore. They had my segment down as “The Holiday Gift Guide For Guys” and meanwhile, I came in to talk about makeup from Mally, Katy Perry’s new perfume and even a John Frieda hair air brush from Conair.

Luckily, just a minute before we went on air we figured this out and somehow improvised. I think it worked out anyway—probably because I had so much fun talking about (and smelling!) these products in the segment. My only regret is that we ran out of time before I got to talk about one of the most luxurious gifts for anyone, which is the Krigler Oud Sumptuous 75213 fragrance that was worn by Coco Chanel, Audrey Hepburn, JFK and Grace Kelly just to name a few.

Check it out my appearance and find out where to buy all of the products in it below.
