Did you see the Stylista finale tonight?

I’m sooo happy for Johanna.

Her great work, attention to detail and striking sense of style helped her win out over Dyshaun.

I think Dyshaun has impeccable taste too but his sloppiness may have gotten the better of him this time around.

I’m sure another mag will snap him up (employer tip: be sure to keep him away from writing copy!)

Congrats, J!

You deserve it!


Unsure of which season to wear fabrics like silk, taffeta, organza, crepe de chine, tulle, satin or velvet?

The time is now.

Put the jeans aside and dress up.

Pull out that stunning black velvet jacket, cocktail dress or dressy slacks instead.

Black and dark hues are worn in abundance: mix it with head-to-toe winter white, or mix in taupes, grays and browns.

Wear jewelry that sparkles and shines — cocktail rings, costume jewelry, big earrings and pins.

Victorias Secret Fashion Show

If you’re like me, you’ve probably heard reports that Victoria’s Secret bras are toxic.

They’ve been several media stories and online posts  claiming the store’s underwear contains formaldehyde.

However, the retailer has issued a “rumor control” statement denying  the whole thing.

Victoria’s Secret does not add formaldehyde to its bras, and multiple, independent tests confirm that Victoria’s Secret bras are formaldehyde-free or contain only traces which are significantly lower than allowed by the most stringent textile guidelines in the world. Dermatologists and various authorities all confirm that even those individuals who are allergic to formaldehyde would not have a reaction at this low level, despite public claims by a Cleveland law firm.

Call me a cynic but I’m still not completely convinced.

Could they have launched their buy-one-bra-get-the-other-50%-off offer simply to get rid of the tainted bras?
