Instant Good Hair Day

Free People top / Gap tank

One of the perks of being a stylist is working with a glam squad that I constantly am learning new beauty tricks from. I had the pleasure of working with one of the best the other day, Kacie Corbelle, when she came down from Boston for a shoot in NYC that we worked together on. On a particular bad hair day of mine—in which the freakish 80 degree weather in April didn’t help—I asked her how in the world does she get her hair to look that amazing every time I see her?

She divulged her secret: She puts Moroccan Oil in her hair at night before she goes to bed, throws it up in a high bun. When she wakes up, voila, instant good hair day!

Kacie even claimed she’s only uses a hair dryer on her hair a handful of times each year thanks to this trick. So I had to try it for myself.

I think she’s on to something.

What do you think of this easy beauty trick?

Flock of Seagulls

Kanvas top (from Something Else, similar online) / Free People jeans / Toms shoes / H&M cuff / etc… watchband bracelets / Alex and Ani bangles / Gypsy Nation vintage bag / Nona E. Rose belt / Urban Outfitters sunnies / vintage necklace, rings and earrings

This spring is all about the prints like tropical motifs, florals and even birds. Don’t be surprised if you see this taking flight on the streets—and I don’t mean the pigeons about to hit you.

Spring Cleaning

Sparrow sweater (Anthropologie) / Leifsdottir top (similar) / Zara pants (similar) / Urban Outfitters vintage belt / vintage bag / DV by Dolce Vita shoes / Ray-Ban sunnies / etc… necklace and bracelet 

Can you believe it’s only April? While the West Coasters are dressed for Coachella (I’m jealous!), we’re just starting to prepare for summer here on the other side of the country. Luckily I just made the switchover in my closet and broke out my warm weather gear. The sweaters are officially stored away!

This early spring cleaning forced me to dig out my old clothing that I have worn in the past couple of seasons and finally got them ready to either donate or consign. For those that are new to the consigning idea, it’s the best way to see if you can make $$ off of your designer pieces, while donating the rest.

This season, I’m working with Leftover Luxuries to sell my pieces like a pair of Marc by Marc Jacobs shoes that I sadly realized that they were just too small on me after I wore them once and a vintage Versace top that I bought years ago for a photoshoot with 90′s fashions and haven’t figured out what to do with it. Contact my friend Kim there if you are in the same boat as I am or stop by on April 27th – May 6th to pick up designer pieces like mine at a low price.

Rockin’ The Suburbs

On Sara: dress (similar) / BCBG clutch / shoes (similar)

On Liz: BCBG dress (similar) / Rag & Bone blazer / Nine West shoes / Betsey Johnson jeweled bracelet / etc… watchband bracelet / rhinestone bracelet (Nordstrom Rack) / vintage ring / Ray-Ban sunnies / clutch (TJMaxx).

My gorgeous (and also stylish) art director friend, Sara, and I felt a bit out of place the other day while strolling through Peekskill, New York.

We were definitely overdressed to pick up iced coffees at the Peekskill Coffee Shop, but it was a necessary trip with the time we had to kill between our friends’ wedding ceremony and reception. It sparked a lot of turned heads and cat calling, as we were pretty dolled up for a Saturday afternoon in the ‘burbs.

I love being able to dress up and my physically demanding job rarely gives me the opportunity to. It was so fun to feel like a scene from Sex & The City, with our cocktail dresses and heels, grabbing coffee. If only every day were that glamorous!

Mad Women

“Andi” and my grandfather, 1963

“Andi”, 1967

I’m pretty addicted to the AMC show, Mad Men. I’m not sure about you, but I’m loving that this season takes place in 1967 and the fashions begin to drastically change from the earlier part of the decade.

I found these images of my mother, “Andi” from just four years apart during this era, and you can really see how the prim and proper look of the early 60′s quickly transformed to the swingin’ 60′s as the culture became more relaxed in what was formerly taboo.

The costume designer of the show, Janie Bryant, captured this shift fashion on the show and talks about it more here. I can’t wait to see more of the fun colors, prints and silhouettes this season, like in the scene with the party and that mini dress that Megan wore with the sheer accordion pleated bell sleeves…swoon.

Is it Sunday night at 10pm yet??

p.s. Happy Friday The 13th!
