California Dreamin’

Up until April 23, 2015, I’d only been to L.A. once, and it was for work. I had a terrible experience and left The City of Angels knowing no more about its plethora of delicious Mexican food than when I began. As a birthday present, I organized a trip for my … Continue reading

My Alzheimer’s Essay In The New York Times

A few months ago I mentioned that my blogging frequency would most likely slow to a crawl for a while. It’s not that I’m abandoning this little guy, it’s just that, at the moment, this blog is going to have to take a backseat to some other writing projects. I’m … Continue reading

Unfollow The Fashion Flock with the Likes of Saint Laurent, Karen Walker & Chloé

The Chloé Long Blazer The longer I work in fashion, the more I understand what it’s all about. These street-style bloggers, the off-duty models, and the lush, fantastical pages of the magazines are merely templates.

A Quaint Hamptons Getaway in Quogue

I don’t know much about the Hamptons. But when I told friends and acquaintances that I was taking a quick jaunt to Quogue (sounds like Kwahg), I was met with pretty much the same response: “Awww Quogue is so cute.” Indeed it is. Quogue is a charming small town in the … Continue reading

Sponsored Post: The Dinner Service For Busy Food Enthusiasts

I know I don’t need to talk to you guys about being busy. Who’s not these days? I’m not sure when it happened, but making adequate time for work (and if you’re a New Yorker, your 2nd or 3rd job), gym, friends, food, and family has become, at times, an insurmountable challenge. I … Continue reading

Uncommon Goods Is The Answer To Your Valentine’s Day Woes

I’m never very inspired to write about Valentine’s Day gifting. I don’t know; it’s a time for personal gifting (and I don’t just mean sexy-time treats). I think of Valentine’s as the occasion when you gift loved ones the kind of intimate chotchskies that represent inside jokes. Or the quirky, … Continue reading

Five Ways To Beat Dry Skin This Winter

I hate having dry skin. It feels as alien to me as the bone-chilling 19-degree temperatures do. But I refuse to be worn and weathered by the chill, and will take the necessary precautions to avoid it–which in my world means moisturize to the max. For starters, this Earth Mother makes her own … Continue reading

Bourbon & Gloss Best of 2014

I like to think that I’m a forward-looker–one who anticipates, evolves, and progresses each year. Yet one of my favorite things about the end of December is reflecting on all that happened in the 365 days preceding it. Call it closure, I guess. Before 2015 is upon us, here’s a peek at some … Continue reading

A Sporadic Season

A photo of friends doing one of the things we love most: eating, drinking, and chatting–all while in no kind of hurry. Dearest, loveliest, savviest readers, I thought that since my posts this year have been rather few and far between, that I should explain. No, I am not shutting down this … Continue reading
