Ugh. I’ve been back in the dating world for a few weeks now, and what I want to know: Is dating in Los Angeles any different from dating in other major metropolis’? Do other cities have the cliché older, successful man yearning for the all-to-available young, beautiful girl syndrome? If so, is their left over pool of men as allergic to commitment as they are in LA? In fact, so averse, that at the first signs of the relationship heading towards the “C word” they pull out their Epi pen (and we know how expensive these have gotten), shoot themselves full of mojo juice, or such, in order to jolt such dreadful thoughts from their mind?
Or, is it us women? Does an answer lie somewhere in the depths of the age-old adage — You always want what you can’t have? Maybe, we are too often attracted to the “bad boys” instead of the giving the trustworthy, kind and dependable, but not quite as enticing guys a fair shake. Food for thought.
I don’t know many of the above answers, but what I do know is where you can get a fab look for a date (see my curated look above), whether it be with a good, bad or hopefully somewhere in between the two guy.

These days I find myself wanting to buy a little something new to add a touch of zing to my summer date night looks. If I’m honest, I’d really like to spice up my dates, but for the moment I’ll settle with rejuvenating my looks. At the same time I want any additions to my wardrobe to possess longevity. Luckily, I found the perfect solution in Zadig & Voltaire’s pre-fall Vito flower velvet blazer. I’ll wear it now in the evening as a throw on to a pair of jeans and a tee, and come cooler days it will top dresses, jeans and more both day and night.
The rich, luscious look and feel of velvet adds an unexpected twist to your basic jeans, tee and sandal look for summer, while being spot on trend for fall. Expect a plethora of velvet dresses, shoes, pants and jackets on street style stars, editors and celebs this fall!

For all intents and purposes July 4th is here and that means BBQ’s, picnics and all around good times are on the horizon. Which for all those new couples (and those more seasoned ones) can mean meeting friends and family for the first time. Getting together with the important people in your date’s life can be agonizing enough; who needs the extra horror of vexing over what to wear?
Reformation and I, along with some stunning and uber chic accessories, have come to your rescue with a curated look that will have your date eating out of the palm of your hand (hopefully not literally), and leaving you the envy of all other party goers!
Have a blast what ever you do on the 4th! But, remember, drinking and driving …… not cool. Call an Uber!

When being thrown back into the dating pool some might like to play it tame and opt for a slightly more conservative look. I, on the other hand, will take the plunge (pun intended) in Onia’s sky blue halter one piece. For a fresh take on denim I’ll keep the main pieces tonal by pairing the one piece with Iro’s Agnette jacket, in a darker shade of the same hue, and Adriano Goldschmied’s Phoebe ultra light cropped jeans. Black accessories will serve up just enough edge to keep this look exciting!
Weigh in: Which bag do you prefer to complete this look? Black or Patchwork denim.

Summer night dates are my idea of happiness. You can wear what ever you desire with no worries about the elements. Once I saw this Nicholas cascade frill bustier top it I knew I had to have it — the perfect top for a warm weather date night.

My heart is so broken, I am beyond words. Just two nights ago I watched Purple Rain for the umpteenth time and thought I will never tire of it. Such a prolific, brilliant musician. Such a sweet, gentle soul. You will be missed.
Date night on the 14th of February is a lot like going out on New Year’s Eve. Planning must be made far in advance (try waiting to the last-minute to make a reservation and see where that gets you), the expectations are high making the evening difficult to live up to, prices seem to sky-rocket and most importantly you’ll want to look dynamite.
I might not able to assist in the first three matters, but when it comes to the most important aspect of your evening I’ve come through in spades. My chic, stylish look may not expose a lot skin, yet it is très sexy none the less. I guarantee he will only have eyes for you! (To knock his socks off later in the evening don this.)
All that is left is for you to relax, enjoy the evening, and spread the love.
Happy Valentine’s Day!

The holidays can be a difficult time for dating. All the parties, shopping and work ate up most of my time, and made meeting someone for the first few times a touch difficult. Now that all that craziness is past and I have settled into the new year, I’m back on my journey to love.
The rain and cold weather are my only hindrance now. I find my self wanting to bundle up in sweat pants or jeans all day. But for a date in a beautiful new restaurant (Charcoal Venice) I’ll be pulling out my over the knee boots. They’re chic, sexy, and the best part is they will keep me warm enough to wear a skirt or dress!
Speaking of skirts, I’m jonesing for the Grace MMXIII fringe skirt (above), on sale at Elyse Walker. The only question now is, do I have time for a pit stop to the store before this evening??
