In this new shopping age, where women are buying singular pieces and not outfits, the most common question asked of me is always the same. Whether on an individual consult or when speaking to a group, everyone wants to know, “What is that special piece/pieces that will make the outfits in our closet have a taste of the new season?” Read the rest of this entry »
Every season I pick a great dress or look that is my favorite and post it to my desktop for aspiration! For me this season, very early on when I saw it on the red carpet, moments after the runway shows had ended and being worn by Kate Winslet, I thought “this is the one.” Sexy but respectable, it was Dots like I had not seen them done before and research led me to a modernization of polka dots fresh from the fall runway of Stella McCartney. I love LBD’s and anyone that knows me knows I own a lot of them, but what made this so special was the one-sleeve/one-side of black dots embroidered on to nude sheer……stunning new treatment, I thought! A must have for me, if only in my dreams. Read the rest of this entry »
Summer temps are here and with that comes a haute desire for color! So, it’s been a very BLUE season to date. Yes, those Spring shades can certainly take you into Summer in Marine Blues or Cool Turquoise but the freshest squeeze on my radar screen for the weeks ahead is ORANGE. Read the rest of this entry »

What the Goldens say about Spring Fashion…..
So, maybe it’s just years of training but Sunday night as I sat in front of my TV with a pad and pencil, knowing that for some, the show was about the Stars, the Movies and the TV Shows, but for many of us, it’s really about the Red Carpet Fashion Trends and a sneak peak at what Spring Fashion will be about?!
Chic Happening……..Dressing for Dinner
How fun it is to have a reason to dress for dinner……a thought that inspired Jeff Shell of the Neal Hamil Modeling Agency and Gracie Cavnar, founder of Recipe for Success to put their creative heads together and collaborate on the first of a series of these events that share two of my personal passions…..fashion and dining. I am thrilled to be one of the founding Host Committee members of this new seasonal concept that kicks off on Thursday, November 19 at Saks Fifth Avenue, from 4-6 p.m., with a preview of the Naem Kahn Spring 2010 Collection.
This celebration of fashion and food through the seasons gives all of us fashion gals out here a reason to get dressed up, visit a little, view alot of beautiful fashions and all for a great cause……100% of the evenings proceeds benefit Recipe for Success.
This is truly a not-to-be missed event at Saks. Hope to see you there, looking fabulous, of course!
