So-o-o Sarah Pacini!

Love, love, love this sleeveless sweater! It’s everything I admire about her designs: unique without being over the top, timeless, and a true statement piece.

Clothing by Sarah Pacini is a rare find in the U.S. I stumbled upon this gem at Reed’s in St. Helena, CA, and it was must-have at first sight.

According to my reliable source, Christina Howard, you can also find Sarah Pacini at Different Point of View in Rochester, NY.

 

2018 Golden Globes

Actresses showed their solidarity against sexual harassment and assault in the entertainment industry by wearing black at last night’s Golden Globes. From a fashion perspective, their dresses were among the best I’ve ever seen at an awards event, because…well…black.

My picks for the night:

Jessica Biel

Menswear-Inspired Shoes

Paul Green is at it again. As the menswear-for-women trend escalates, you can count on this company to keep pace. _101554556

These oxfords have the tailored look of a man’s shoe, enhanced by a kiltie, studs, and crystals that lend a girlie vibe. They’re perfect with skinny ankle pants (sockless, of course) or with tights and a short skirt.

My Take on the Oscars 2017

The clear winner at last night’s Oscars was 16-year-old Auli’i Cravalho, and I’m not saying that just because my friend Sam Saboura styled her. I’m saying that because he did a spectacular job, and she looked stunning in everything she wore.
