Markus Lupfer on Sale

2016-12-18T15:24:35+00:00

If I really want something, I will do my research and patiently wait. Like I waited for this Markus Lupfer sweater for months. I saw it in a few different places last fall so I knew it would eventually go on sale. I made a list of every retailer carrying the designer and I checked [...]

Accessories to Keep Warm

2017-01-24T19:45:09+00:00

I bought a couple of these Eugenia Kim Rain hats on sale last spring. I knew I would be happy to have them come winter—and I am! They are so warm and cozy. I have linked to a bunch that are on sale right now, plus a few that are not yet reduced but should [...]

Gifts for the Jetsetter

2016-12-14T19:04:57+00:00

These gifts promise to go the distance for the stylish jetsetter. Packable Hunter boots. Brilliant. A pair of comfortable slip-on sneakers representing their favorite city. Who wouldn't want those? I know I do. A chain wallet is the way to go to keep your money by your side and I'm all about tiny wallets these days so [...]

Gifts for Kids

2016-12-09T02:09:46+00:00

Figuring out gifts for the kids for Christmas is always a tough one. There's stuff to get from their own, very specific list for Santa. My own daughter's list for Santa includes a bell for her bicycle and an electric bass. An electric bass?? She's five. Does she play the bass? Since when? Does she [...]

The Best of the Sales (So Far)

2016-11-28T18:14:08+00:00

Cyber Monday is here and the volume of deals out there is enough to make your head spin. Not to worry. This Noir Friday edit of the sales so far features dozens of not-to-miss items across all the major retailers—plus everything has been separated into easy categories for your convenience. I expect much of it [...]

Net-A-Porter Fall/Winter ’16 Sale

2016-11-24T15:55:57+00:00

For me, the fall/winter sale season officially kicks off with the Net-A-Porter sale. It's usually the first real sale involving markdowns for the current season. I have snagged some fantastic items during the first day of this sale over the years: this Altuzarra coat, this Miu Miu jacket. I must say this year's Net-A-Porter fall-winter sale [...]

Graphic Tee Shirts

2016-12-12T19:06:30+00:00

Graphic tee shirts are one of my favorite ways to throw things off a bit. You know I need to take an outfit and turn it slightly on its head for it to feel complete. I regularly wore fun T-shirts with blazers when I worked in an office every day. I couldn't bear to [...]

The power of leopard

2016-11-17T14:54:30+00:00

Jenna Lyons spoke wise words when she once said, "As far as I'm concerned, leopard is a neutral." It's true. As far as I'm concerned, leopard can be matched with anything: see here and here. And how good does the Gucci Dionysus Cubic bag I'm carrying here look with this Zara leopard jacket? The [...]

NYFW SS17 (Part 2)

2016-11-05T18:53:54+00:00

The primary way I think of fashion from a buying perspective aside from wearability is collecting. It's rather like building an art collection. The first thing I ask myself when making a purchase is: What role does this play in my wardrobe? Not only, Do I need, say, a wide-leg pant. But what does this piece that I'm eyeing [...]
