Disco does something to my body. I’m not sure if it’s the tempo, the funky synthesizers, occasional brass influences or piano chords, but there’s something about it that takes my two Jewish left feet on a ride that I never want to get off. The Knocks never fail in my book; they take the world of disco and funk to an unparalleled level of greatness. Their music speaks for itself and the new track, Dancing With Myself, follows the trend of becoming another dance masterpiece. With smooth vocals from Mr. J. Patt, over a bass heavy piano driven track, this mid-tempo funky jam should have your head bobbing. Dancing With Myself is the lead single from The Knocks’ debut full length album. If their past singles and EP’s are any indication, the future of the Knocks,  should be nothing less than spectacular. Watch the brand new video for Dancing With Myself below.

The 87th Academy Awards was a night of pearls, embellishments, simple high ponies, lots of red, strapless downward turned necklines, and statement necklaces.

Confession: I’ve never wanted to be a personal shopper. There, I said it.  I love to shop and am all about finding the perfect fashion solution but with the majority of personal shopping services tied to a single store, it didn’t seem like a good fit. I’m an independent fashion stylist who craves the creative freedom to be able to mix brands and price points to serve a customer’s needs.  I also had reservations about the customer wondering if the advice and guidance they received was somehow influenced by personal shoppers, whose compensation is tied to how much the customer spends. All that changed when Copley Place started a new personal shopping program that allows their personal shopper to bring customers to any retailer within the mall. And it’s free to customers!  With the focus 100% on finding the right options for customers, let’s just say I was “all in.”

“Fashion is what you buy. Style is what you do with it” – unknown.  Great style has the power to transform and change not only how you feel, but how others view you. Gender, age, body type, or even budget are irrelevant because ultimately, confidence is the goal. When you feel like you’re presenting your best self you stand taller, you’re happier, and you feel ready for success. I’m obsessed with finding the dress that will flatter your figure perfectly, the jeans that make you want to strut, the suit you will reach for when you need super powers. I have created thousands of looks for the fashion shows I produce, the photo shoots I contribute to, and the clients I serve. Dressing models is big fun and I love it, but being able to help real people with their fashion needs is tremendously rewarding.

Whether shopping for gifts, special occasion outfits, or adding key pieces to your wardrobe, I will show you options that fit your unique individual style and budget. Some retailers will even extend special unpublished discounts and benefits to guests when shopping with me – sweet! No sales pressure – this is all about providing you with an exceptional personal styling and shopping experience.

Debora Konig at Copley Place handles the reservations, please contact her at dkonig@simon.co  and let her know what day and time works for you.

See you soon!

At first I thought the details on Lanvin’s shirt were suspenders. It would look pretty rad if they were.

Boho is making a comeback for Resort ’15 – though I can’t say it ever left my closet and I don’t think it will. My wardrobe consists mostly of long, free flowing shirts and dresses, fringe and some more fringe. Perhaps I keep Boho around to hide my food baby – and I secretly wish I lived inside a Free People magazine. Don’t get me wrong; I love the minimal, streamlined look Boho encompasses, there’s this understated vibe it exudes, a kind of bold and carefree look if you will. It won’t go away anytime soon because contemporary classics are a staple. It is just a matter of keeping them fresh.

The floral print will always pair nicely with bohemian style threads; it’s just a matter of how the print is presented. We see designers reinvent floral each season, the question is, are they executed correctly? Another boho staple is the tie-dye print, which again can be hit or miss depending on the representation of the print. Here are some of my favorite boho-chic inspired designs from the likes of Lanvin, Giles and Michael Kors featured on style.com and Elle’s Nov. ’14 issue. Head over to style.com to check out more of the Resort trends.

Ralph Lauren

Ralph Lauren stated, “I really wanted to do something big for the new Polo Women’s brand – something set in the city — that felt modern. We returned to Central Park, a place I love, and captured the spirit of Polo with a truly innovative mix of fashion and technology.”

And he achieved just that at his SS’15 show. Ralph Lauren has set a precedent for Fashion Week by showing his Women’s Polo collection on a 4D projection on a wall of water in Central Park.

Partnering with MPC Creative New York, Ralph Lauren took his audience on a journey of over 13,000 frames through the elusive world of fashion.  There exists a dreamy, unobtainable essence of Fashion Week and Ralph made that feeling literal. I understand the efforts that are involved in creating a collection, and that adrenaline rush when first exposing your work. Ralph took this to a brand new f***ing level, making this debut completely magical.  While I am a sucker for simplicity, appreciating the music, lights and sole focus on the garments themselves, Ralph Lauren delivered a fresh, innovative presentation that fits right into this digital world. Presentation is everything and this collaboration hit it right out of Central Park.
