Bold Fashion in Dark Times

Yesterday I wore a bright sweater with "Gucci" vibes, and distressed denim. Today, after reading the headlines, I would not choose to wear color. I would want to wear black. I was at Bloomingdales supposing their efforts to fight breast cancer,  and I bought two items where the proceeds went generously to that cause. I have included a shopping collage, for those of us who want the shopping distraction!

 In dark times, it is helpful to embrace Fashion and Art; to train our eyes, collectively, on the light at the end of the tunnel. I wish you peace, joy, and the bit of light that comes with illumination.

XOXO, Elle

DapperQ: A Gender Fluid Runway Show @ Brooklyn Museum

I am an independent blogger as you know. This year I thought long and hard about which shows I wanted to attend and cover. ( Yes, belatedly still more to come) When I was invited to the dapperQ production featuring gender fluid style, with seven designers , I thought, YES!

This show was one of the most diverse runway shows ever, and on my blog, as in my life, I value inclusiveness.

I value that each of us feels comfortable in his or her skin, irrespective of sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, gender, and skin color.  xoxo, Elle

#NYFW / My Bustling City/ #WIW

We find ourselves a bit past the mid-point of #NYFW. I have enjoyed many runway shows, but was especially enthusiastic about the Runway Gala hosted by The Carol Galvin Foundation to benefit cancer. This post just is a preview of the shows to come, and a bit of a #WIW post as well.  More to come!

Stay safe from the storms! Sending love from New York City!

#Streetstyle Tips: How To Wear White After Labor Day

Wondering how to wear white after Labor Day? Lets ditch the old rules and look at white as a cool neutral for autumn. Think cozy sweaters, soft capes, white shirtings over denim, in any color. Do not forget a winter-white coat in a good wool or cashmere, a true luxury piece that will always be in style. I added some shopping and styling ideas to this post. Remember , when possible, shop small and local!

Birthday Aboard the Heron

I love to celebrate my birthday with my family and friends. It seems I like parties big and small, but most important are the people who make my celebrations special. Today I am in  Sag Harbor boarding a sailing catamaran and wearing a nautically inspired outfit, that is punched up with some pom-pom trim and a fresh blue sky in the background!
