Getting down to the business of styling a client for her upcoming video release.
New to New York City, Eliza needed to look the part for her new job.
I am a self proclaimed perfume addict. I j’adore a fine Eau de Parfum. Here are some tips on finding the right one for you from my friends at the Barneys perfume counter. Remember to spritz away just don’t over do it. No one wants to be in a room with a skunk.
Perfumes contain layers of scents to create their unique bouquet. These layers are referred to as notes. Initially you may only notice … Read More »
Vintage and consignment shops have never looked better! Please stand up right now and march to your local salvation army, flea market and boutique vintage stores in your area for clothing/books/furniture/jewelry that won’t break the budget (some will but it’s worth it). I spotted this beautiful DVF (Diane von Furstenberg) for dare I say it…$20! Here it is hanging out waiting for me to put her on.
I’m still in a state of shock over my find. I found more online for $320. Look for classic items that will last you years vs trendy items that last a season.
Here are a few stores that I frequent:
Buffalo Exchange (locations all across the country)
Brooklyn Flea (if you’re a lover of all things cool go here)
Ina (brands, brands, and more brands)
And then there’s one more I just discovered. But my mom always told me to keep a secret….but if you really want to know, email me.
Have you ever wanted to call in sick to work because you had cramps, heavy bleeding, been emotionally and physically exhausted and didn’t feel like being half naked in a room full of people, where you are the main focus? I found myself facing that very situation. At a recent shoot for O, the Oprah Magazine, where I’d been asked to model lingerie for their yearly Body Issue, a testament to body love and self acceptance, but this time, I couldn’t call out sick.
As I walked into the brightly lit photography studio, I saw the racks of nude lingerie awaiting me, as well as my co-model for the shoot, a beautiful, elegant size-zero model resembling Lupita Nyong’o. You’d think the idea of disrobing and taking full-length shots in the nude body suit they’d prepared for me would be the part of this story making me pause—hardly. As an international model, I’d been taking shots like this for more than 10 years. No, today, I was feeling vulnerable for an entirely different reason. I’d recently had two very different and serious health scares—and if I hadn’t advocated for myself with multiple doctors—I might not even be standing in the room.
Just a few weeks prior to the body shoot, I had 20 fibroids removed … Read More »
Don’t you just love affordable trends? Watch as I was featured as one of the models with Kate Dimmock from People Style Watch on the Katie Couric Show.
Watch the segment here and see what Katie says about my hair. It’s a red headed thing!
Here are a couple behind the scene pictures with some of the other models from that day. Thank you Katie!
“I feel so much better about myself thanks to you helping me shop. I’m the same weight and size as two months ago but feel like I’ve lost 100 pounds….I feel incredible.”

No matter what your shopping budget, we all love a deal. This client had set a budget per shopping trip and this is the text I received post our shopping trip:
“15 items (today), full retail value $1450
Thank you Bernadett”
Of course you’re interested in knowing my fashionably professional, non-judgmental uninformed football opinion on who will win Super Bowl 2014. The reason you may care is because if I pick the winner and get anywhere near the right final score, you may just say, hey this red head knows a thing or two about predicting a game based solely on the uniforms and the image each coach portrays.
Thanks to Nike, both teams are outfitted with uniforms designed by the brand that … Read More »
Seeing a trend on the streets of New York. Besides not seeing anyone’s face because it’s so cold, keeping your lid warm is trending.
There’s a statistic (google it to double check) that something like 80% of your heat escapes from your head. Remain calm, cool (no pun intended) and fashionable!
Saw these lovely women on the streets of New York. One was the gorgeous and talented B. Smith (who is also the first African American model to grace the cover of Mademoiselle Magazine in 1976) and one woman we stalked for a picture of her faux fur headband. (Thank you B. Smith for stopping to pose for us, you’re gorgeous even in the dead of winter!)
