BOSTON MAGAZINE

One of my favorite weddings that I did last year is currently in Boston Magazine's Wedding Issue. Can't think of better press than that. Thanks for the mention, Emily!

EQUAL RIGHTS


LAMÉ HAVE IT

Lanvin Lamé skirt
I'm not sure if I want to unwrap it, wear it, or frame it and hang it on my wall. I'm also not sure if I want to pair it with flip flops and a tank top or glam it up with cage pumps, Marilyn Monroe jewels and a leopard coat. I'd even love it in the winter with tights and a cashmere sweater and black flats. Point is, this girl's got range and I'm feeling a bit like Sybil.

Foil girl, I mean Lamé girl, I mean Sparkle Girl!

THE COVER UP

Anyone who knows me knows I'm a big fan of hats, particularly in the summer. And I'm not talking baseball caps or sun visors here...I'm talking REAL HATS. If you were trying to locate me on the beach all you'd have to do was look for the Paddington Bear imitator and that would be me. (even the color) So it's probably not a huge surprise that me and a few entrepreneurial friends are working on a sort of millinery endeavor (it's called COVER but that's all I'm gonna say) and tomorrow we are meeting with one of NYC's outrageously cool milliners, SATYA TWENA to possibly partner up with. Remember in Jerry Maguire when Jerry said, "You make me want to be a better man?" Well, the first time I saw Satya's hats I said to self, "Satya, you make me want to wear a hat every day of my life. Even on Christmas. In the morning. When it's dark out." Forget that she's hatted (is that a word?) major celebrities, cuz' you know that does nothing for me, but what does impress is that this creative little genius started her hat business when her mom started losing her hair due to cancer. Yeah, and before you think that's the end of the story... it's not. She then spearheaded a campaign to save the hat factory where her hats were being made. Her goal was to preserve the craft of hand made hats and keep that craft here in America. Her NYC factory now not only produces her hats (we'll get to those in a minute) but it also hosts events. (I'm thinking COVER launch party, what do you think?)
And then there are the actual hats. Proportion. Fit. Style. Seasonal. Quality materials. Unique. Ugh! Why weren't we born with 10 heads?! It's too hard to choose. I literally want it to be winter again just so I can wear the Roanne velour hat with grosgrain ribbon. Yeah, I love them that much. I am one mad hatter. #satyatwena

CC'D

It's no secret that I'm not a huge fan of the sun....on my face. I'm all for a little Vitamin D everywhere else but my face needs a little extra protection. Since I was told the sun's damaging rays are everywhere (while driving in your car, sitting in your living room that has windows, outside even in the shade?!!!) I decided to get a bit more serious when it comes to skincare. Supergoop's CC Cream is tinted and has an SPF of 35. I know you're thinking 'so does my current foundation (or tinted moisturizer)' but mine did too and I still made the switch. With a 2 rating on EWG's website and stellar protection ratings, it's a winning combo, no make that SUPER.
