5 Things I Learned as a First-Time Bridesmaid

A year ago, I was asked by my best friend, Maura Rose (well, Smith), to be a bridesmaid in her wedding. She’d just gotten engaged to the guy we all knew she’d be with for the rest of her life. And I got the call early in the morning. I remember exactly where I was […]

It’s All in the Ensambl

Fashion and Technology…these are a few of my favorite things. A few weeks ago, I was introduced to a new fashion app. The creator, Dalia Strum, is a fellow fashionable digital native who obsessed over the age old “What to Wear?” question and invented her own solution.

What Men Want: To Shop

My fellow females will agree that when it comes to personal care and upkeep, being picky is OK. For example, my hairdresser is here, my pedicurist is there, and the one woman who does my eyebrows (like only she can) is at a salon all the way across town—and yes, I will gladly go the […]

An Eye for the Runway

An Eye for the Runway
