Welcome to my new column! I have been working hard lately to get my creative spark back—let me explain. I worked for many years as a magazine editor in New York, wrote for dozens of magazines as a freelance writer and then landed a gig as the director of content for Forbes Travel Guide. That [...]
As the former director of content for Forbes Travel Guide, one of the questions I’m often asked is, “Where should I go on vacation.” Of course, the answer depends on a lot of factors (geography, active or leisure, long or short) but one place I have been to many times myself is Puerto Rico—and the resort I always visit while I’m there is The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort.
The Kenzo x H&M collection was one of my favorite fashion collaborations from 2016. Yes, the bright tiger prints are a Noir Friday no-brainer. But I also love how you can layer the pieces in the most madcap way. I bought the pink and green tiger-striped sweater (see here), which can be worn over/under this [...]
We recently wrote about our love for Valentine's Day here—or rather, our love for pink and red, flirty frocks and statement pieces that tell the world you're not the least bit shy about your fashion choices. We love the mix of cool, sexy and cheeky dressing associated with Valentine's Day so much, we're advocating for [...]
Valentine's Day Gifts (for your sweetie, for you) are the absolute best for one major reason: pink and red simply belong together. The romantic holiday is unabashedly one of favorites here at Noir Friday. Some may say it's too saccharine, too contrived, too depressing. We say it's an excuse to buy yourself a heart-print sweatshirt [...]
A go-to designer for easy, glam dresses (and lots of other stuff, too) is Stacey Bendet for Alice + Olivia. The designer's flirty dresses are easy to wear and super glam, and if you get them on sale, come at a pretty gentle price point. They have that punchy feel we're always drawn to here at Noir Friday and we love how [...]
A winter getaway is key for surviving the post-holiday doldrums. Whether you're heading somewhere warm and tropical or embracing the cold with a cozy ski trip, we have your vacation needs covered. Here's what to shop for your winter escape. Bon voyage! SUN SNOW
You took care of everyone on your gift list—now it's time to gift yourself and grab those items you really want. January is one of the of the best shopping months, with everything on final sale. I often pick up a major piece on deep sale after the holidays—past items have included this Altuzarra parka, [...]
The Neiman Marcus Last Call sale is great for plucking designer pieces at a major discount. I found the Dolce & Gabbana coat pictured above during last year's sale (see more photos of it here). Other finds from the Last Call sale include my favorite Prada jacket (see it here and here) and this Gucci [...]
Sequins, bows, ruffles—yes, please. Let's just say that we here at Noir Friday can appreciate the more is more philosophy. The glam girl's taste veers toward the utterly ridiculous—in the best possible way. This is the girl who wants to stand out—and here are the gifs guaranteed to make that happen.
