We've all been there. You open your closet, sigh, roll your eyes, and say something like, "I hate all my clothes!" or "I have nothing to wear!!" We all know it isn't true, but feeling bored of last year's wardrobe is a common issue I know my friends and I share as the seasons change and we bring back out the sweaters and coats. This obviously isn't a real "life problem," but getting dressed should be fun, not frustrating, so I have a few solutions to help the old feel new again. Read on.Read More

I spoke about upgraded denim last summer, but the trend continues to grace the streets and the runways. There’s something so enticing about the contrast of the iconically laid-back fabric constructed into a stylish garment with luxurious, thoughtful details. From lengthy patchwork jean jackets (Saint Laurent) to heavily embellished Victorian-style suiting (Alexander McQueen), the latest designer collections have inspired me to rework my favorite lace-up dress of last summer for winter weather by adding chill-preventing pairings. Denim is seasonless, after all. Shop some of my favorite done-up denim pieces below.

It's a special thing to meet the designer of a collection that you admire. When you connect with the person and the passion behind the designs, you see the garments in a new way, and appreciate the designs on a visceral level. When Lindy Fox contacted me about wearing one of the beautiful dresses from her collection, Organic Beginnings, I thought she would send a messenger service over with a garment bag. Instead, I had the great pleasure of meeting her at the Nineteenth Amendment headquarters in Brooklyn, where we talked about her lifelong love of fashion and design. I always love to meet ambitious and creative people, but in addition to her talent, Lindy has such a beautiful soul and a radiant energy that clearly translates in her designs.
Lindy says, "Fashion is the first way I see people's individuality expressed. It is the way in which I want to connect to other women; to make them feel valued and confident." Her collection is inspired by oranges, the sowing of seeds, and the California sun and is available for purchase from Nineteenth Amendment. Nineteenth Amendment is an innovative company with the inspired mission to bridge the gap between independent designers and lovers of fashion. By connecting with talented, independent designers before they've hit the mainstream, Nineteenth Amendment is able to offer exclusive designs for wholesale prices for 45 days. Don't miss your chance to shop Lindy's sunny collection!
I live in sundresses during the summer and I wear them to the point that I never want to see them again come the following year. For this reason, 99% of my summer day dresses cost less than $100, with many as low as $30. I find most of my favorites from Zara, H&M, and Forever 21. I get such great pleasure from taking an inexpensive dress, like this beautiful one from H&M, and accessorizing it in all sorts of ways. My good friend, Shani, and I discovered this particular dress on one of our shopping excursions and both bought it in different colors. We have been having the best time sending each other mirror selfies of the different ways we style it. Isn't it a blast to see how two people can conceptualize completely unique ways to wear the same dress? Do you and your friends do the same thing?
Unlike most New Yorkers, I actually enjoy Manhattan in the summer. It's quieter, there's less traffic, and the warm city evenings feel romantic and sexy. I don't mind a Sunday afternoon at the beach, but I prefer to see the sunset over the city skyline. A loose white dress like this one from MLM is perfect for cocktails al fresco on a humid, sticky night. I love how off-the-shoulder designs leave room for lots of glamorous jewelry. I have rekindled my 90s obsession with chokers and I love the way this gold one looks with giant earrings. Wishing everyone a hot and sexy summer whether it's here, at the beach, or on a yacht in Capri. Xoxo
