Sweater Weather


I truly appreciate all four seasons: I love a hot summer, crisp fall, cozy winter and breezy spring. Chicagoans love to complain about the cold, which, if you ask me, is because it's expected of them since it's not so cold (unless we're having a polar vortex) that you need to mention it every time [...]

Saks Fifth Avenue Friends & Family


The Saks Fifth Avenue Friends & Family sale is going on through October 10 and it's definitely worth checking out. I'm generally of fan of friends and family sales—essentially the pre-sales to the big markdowns in winter and spring. You won't see the current season marked down yet but I find friends and family sales [...]

The Best Items for Fall ’17


I often joke that I couldn't live in a place that doesn't have four seasons. I'd rather have the occasional frigid temps—and the necessary wool and tweed and down—than sunny skies that negate these items. Here's what I'm lusting after this fall. Overall, the mood is super glam (always) and slightly mad. It's a good [...]

Pretty Eyelet Pieces


Before I left for my travels this summer, I picked up several pieces at H&M that were the exact look I had in mind for the season. I was drawn to the lacy, eyelet pieces I kept seeing on various sites and was able to scoop up a bunch of them for reasonable prices when I [...]

Ready, Jet, Go


If you're anything like me, you think you're ready for a vacation—until the week or so before your trip. That's when you realize there is so much more to do, so many little things you need to pick up before you go, and you are stressed because it's not like you don't have a [...]

Shop the Best Dresses for Summer


I look for dresses more than I look for anything else. That's because I love to wear them. I like statement dresses as much as I like statements shoes, bags, accessories, everything. But they must be easy to throw on—I don't care for anything too fussy or restricting. I must be able to move in [...]

Shop the Spring Summer 17 Sales


I have posted Spring Summer 17 sales round-ups from a couple of my favorite sites: Net-A-Porter and Matches Fashion. This guide to the Spring Summer 17 sales covers some of the others I frequent most: Farfetch, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and Luisaviaroma, among others. I like to have a complete picture of what's on [...]

Matches Fashion Spring Summer Sale


  MatchesFashion.com is one of my favorite shopping sites and the spring summer sale is in full force. I found the Gucci sunglasses pictured here for a  steal on the site a couple of months ago. I also picked up the Dolce & Gabbana dress here—which is still available in Noir Friday Finds—and this one here. [...]

Net-A-Porter Spring Summer Sale


The Net-A-Porter Spring Summer sale is here and there is so much sparkly goodness. Topping my list? A ring and a pair of earrings. I also love the Current Elliot jeans, the sequined MSGM sweatshirt, the Missoni socks (!!) and the rainbow sequined heels. I want to wear all of it, all summer long. Here, [...]

A Foolproof Uniform For Spring


This is my foolproof uniform for spring: blazer, fun tee, jeans, loafers or sneakers and major sunnies. I always add a statement piece (or two or three): here, the glasses, plus the shoes. Of course, the jacket doesn't shrink, either. I love blazers. I used to buy boatloads of jackets when I worked in an [...]
