DRESS FOR YOU, NOT YOUR MAN






Even if dressing up means wearing the most neutral jumpsuit with wide legged pants.

Flaunt it with confidence and pride which has nothing to do with physical appearance, but looking your best will make you feel your best. Confidence is a self-fulfilling prophecy and the secret to a look that radiates unstudied cool.

CARNAVAL DO BRASIL




Being in Brazil but leaving the night before carnival kicks off, is like going to Paris without seeing the Eiffel tower, getting invited to a free Ferran Adria dinner but having the stomach flu or watching a Spice Girls reunion concert without Posh. Bottom line is that I was coping with a certain kind of frustration last week but luckily my friend got me in the pre carnival mood by introducing me to an unbelievable cool Brazilian brand, Isolda, and let me wear one of her dresses. Giant lobsters on a teal background = coolness all over!

Isolda's unique collections are defined by beautiful handpainted prints which are then digitalized, arranged and printed on the finest textiles.

COLOURFUL BRAZIL




Brazil: the country of samba, carnival, Gisele and Neymar; the country of contrasts, Havaianas and caipirinhas and the place with Pantone worthy backdrops and murals that match perfectly with my outfits. Proudly wearing yellow and green for the occasion.

QUEEN OF HEARTS





You know you've spent your money well when you can wear your Halloween outfit for a girl’s night out. 

While NYC is still covered with snow, I’m time travelling back to just one month ago, to sunny Miami. My Queen of Hearts costume gets mistaken for a Galliano creation by a 30 something Miami tourist – way to go girl, bless her!


Big thanks to my girl Michelle who gave me a little fashion challenge. November 2014: “I totally love your Halloween costume” I tell my friend Michelle, who proudly shows a few pictures of her and her son, all themed up for Halloween. “You should totally wear it” she replies back. Et voila! 

Getting dressed up – silly, fancy or otherwise – is kind of one of my favorite things, and over time I promise myself to get better at it.

TOUCHDOWN


The second best event after Halloween: Super Bowl Sunday! Tom Brady, Katy Perry and state of the art commercials, what’s there not to like?!  Too bad the Packers our out, those cheasehead hats were everything…

HAPPY JUNO





#Juno2015: Trending topic on the internet and “Better safe than sorry” seems to be the bottom line but here’s how it really went on Monday night. I love to tie up an outfit story to actual facts - yawn.

Monday evening, January 26th. 11.55 pm. Manhattan is a ghost town.

Hours earlier Wholefoods turned into WholeZoo. The line at Trader Joes was possibly even worse with people standing in line outside which made me feel like I should have been more worried about starving than I actually was about the snow. 

My WORST fears realized when I get to my own local grocery store down the building: no more Doritos on the shelves. I'd rather wake up without electricity. I hate you all! Kudos to the girl in front of me who checks out a large box of condoms and a double six pack of beers.

I stayed up till 2 am and still nothing. I was already out of Pringles by 11.30 pm. There was even a “traffic ban” after 11 pm. Delivery bikes were not considered as emergency vehicles so my sushi / pizza neighbor couldn't order his usual take out.

Instagram and twitter were collapsing and it was hard to tell if it was snowing outside or not with so many statuses. I made a short instagram movie during the day that made it to both the New York Times online and was the opening video on their instagram, jay!

The blizzard never came but gave us all New Yorkers the opportunity to bundle up and work from home the next day. Thanks #Juno2015
