Mom’s are special. They’ve nurtured us, disciplined us, were untiring play dates, and basically helped mold us into the people we are today (and continue even into adulthood). It’s a tough gig, enormously rewarding, yet formidable.

This Mother’s Day (Sunday May 10th) reward your mom for all she’s done, and endured with a first class gift from my curated selection of gifts any mom is sure to love. Select from DVF’s romantic silk-georgette printed dress, to the luxurious Larkspur and Hall gold-dipped topaz earrings, to the cutting edge Prynt Case, which turns your smart phone into an instant camera (lovin this). And, while you’re at it, make a donation in your mom’s name to aid those in need after the tragic earthquake in Nepal (see below).

Don’t forget the momentous affects the four little words, I Love You Mom, can give life to.

Some days, even the most stylish among us need a little inspiration. I know that is how I have been feeling of late. And, when in need of fashion ideas, I did what I always do: I turned to the stylish pages of one of my favorite blogs, Who What Wear.

They, of course, didn’t fail me. I ended up with innumerable ideas to spur my imagination. I’m betting you will too!

East West


Tiffany & Co. East meets West

“The idea of how you buy a watch today is not just to tell the time; its how you fall in love with the design.”, explains  Francesca Amfitheatrof, Tiffany & Co.’s design director. A trained jeweler and silversmith, Amfitheatrof approached the East West, her first timepiece for the storied house, “more like an object than a precision instrument.”

The result is Tiffany & Co’s latest time piece in a clean, modern rectangular design, with the unexpected touch of numbers arranged sideways (nine o’clock occupying the top position). Time intrinsically represents the future, yet the East West draws its inspiration from a 1940’s purse watch found in Tiffany’s archives, resulting in a vintage aesthetic.

This covetable beauty comes in stainless steal for $3500 (here), also gold and platinum for up to $17,000. My choice is the white background with gold numbering. What’s yours?

It’s Time For White


Valentino Spring Ad CampaignRosie Hunnington Whiteley

The little white dress; what would summer be without it? This season it is all about lace, texture, and loosely fitted silhouettes. The minute I saw Chloe’s guipure lace (above on Rosie Hunnington Whiteley) version I knew that it would be the dress this summer – the one that ignited the trend.

Unfortunately, it has a price tag to match! But, they are numerous alternatives to choose from. A few of my favs are Isabel Marant’s gauze tiara dress, and Zara’s romantic lace dress. If you are after more of a sporty look, try Alexander Wang’s laser cut mesh maxi.

Move over LBD, it’s time to make room for your counterpart – the LWD!

The Ease Of Jumpsuits


ASOS Never Fully Dressed Relaxed Jumpsuit With Utility DetailsSkin Brushed Pima Cotton-Jersey Jumpsuit

Solace London Rossi JumpsuitTop Shop Halter Culotte Jumpsuit

ASOS Bardot Bandeau Culottes JumpsuitSolani Daisy Silk-Crepe Playsuit

I love dresses. Besides having many attributes — feminine, sporty, bohemian etc, — not much is easier when it comes to pulling a look together quickly. Accessorize and done! The same is true for jumpsuits, times 10!

This spring I’m loving the addition of the culotte jumpsuit. The chic hybrid of a dress and culottes is ideal for both day or night and casual or dressed up. They have a feminine sensibility aligned with mens wear inspiration.

I think I’ll be living in Top Shop’s Bardot strapless white version this summer.
