Surprise! There’s a bride in here. Preparing for my best friend Melissa’s “Engagement Party” otherwise known as the #secretwedding Photo: Brother-in-law’s wife Amber Finsel of JFAB Photography Joel and I are nearing our 10 year wedding anniversary in less than two weeks. On that special day under the weeping willows, my best friend Melissa as part of our bridal party, gamely attempted to toast us while choking back her free-flowing tears. She is by far my longest standing friend, the daughter of my mom’s high school best friend Brenda (whom…

About to board the ferry in Brooklyn to Governor’s Island for the 9th Annual Jazz Age Lawn Party last weekend! When I realized that my childhood best friend was hosting her engagement party in Pennsylvania only one week from the Jazz Age Lawn Party‘s second installment in August on Governor’s Island off of New York City, I just knew I had to go (again! – see my coverage in June here) After some sweet talking to Joel and presenting him with some snazzy vintage spectators to wear, I “dragged” him…

Bill McIlwain and his bandana collection. Photo: Star-News Going through old files on my computer trying to find traces of communication with my dear friend Bill McIlwain, who passed away at 88 this week, I came across a document titled, “Fashion Fix Testimonials” with a quote from Bill that made me smile as I thought of him with his tie-dye bandana and twinkle in his eye. “An especially good “Fix” today — solid information, interesting events to attend, good-looking wife of a good reporter (disclosure: fairly certain this was a…

Louis Vuitton + Celine statement earrings / Harper’s Bazaar Coco Chanel famously advised, “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.” Considering very few people have accused me of being a minimalist, I only occasionally heed this advice. Let’s just say I’ve been known to throw an arm party or two. This season, at least when it comes to earrings, less meets more.

Want to wear this cool t-shirt + know half of your $ is going to kids in need? Click HERE to purchase from Half United. Did you miss me last Friday? I am contemplating taking the FASHION FIX bi-weekly with the launch of my new website (hopefully coming soon) and figured last Thursday was a good time to test drive the concept since I spent over 12 hours in the car that day, basically on a whim. It was one of those days when two friends asked for a favor,…

Featured artist Sullivan Anlyan last night at the Triple Threat art opening at Annex TRIPLE THREAT Art Opening at Annex I recently re-read David Bowie’s Proust questionnaire in Vanity Fair circa 2009 via Brain Pickings, Joel’s “favorite newsletter after the Fashion Fix.” His answers, at the same time cheeky and profound, shed light on his greatest fear – “converting kilometers to miles” – and his greatest regret, “never wearing bellbottoms.” But his answer that made me laugh out loud was his response to, “What is the quality you most like…
