Ahh Capri…with its azure shores, captivating beauty and Italian charm, it’s no wonder that it has long been a playground for the rich and famous. Capri has a free-spirited vibe that exudes a leisurely glamour, much like myself. In the 60’s and early 70’s, it was the place to be for the international jet-set.

In the past few weeks a curious thing was happening on my instagram feed.

I was recently asked if I could pick one fashion person to have dinner with, who would it be? Why, Isaac Mizrahi of course. I can’t think of a fashion designer or entertainer who makes me happier than Isaac. From designing clothes to singing cabaret, Isaac’s approach to all things is exuberant. I have always found him to be a delight.

I was immediately drawn to his clothes when his designs began appearing in fashion magazines in the late ’80’s.

Darlings, you must recall that famous scene in Woody Allen’s romantic comedy, Annie Hall, when we are first introduced to Diane Keaton’s iconic style. During her first meeting with Allen’s character, Alvy, after playing a doubles tennis match, we see Keaton’s character, Annie, with all of her self-deprecating charm and warmth, in the ensemble that sparked the imagination of women and what they wanted to wear.

We’ve all been told, time and again, if you’re a woman of a certain age you must never, ever, wear a mini. Do you remember the last time you wore a mini? At the height of my mini wearing days, The Cars album played on the turntable as I doused myself in Jovan Musk, strapped on my Maud Frizon heels and headed over to Studio 54 to dance the night away.

Yes Darlings, it was that long ago.

Ahhh… Chanel. Music to any girl’s ears. Earlier this month when I heard Chanel had presented a collection inspired by Ancient Egypt, I googled right away to see it for myself.

Karl Lagerfeld, designer and creative director extraordinaire, did not disappoint.

Darlings, do you recall the ensemble I’m wearing? This look is from one of those iconic Ralph Lauren ads that appeared in every fashion magazine in 1981. The ads were beautifully shot by legendary photographer, Bruce Weber, and featured the gorgeous model, Clotilde, wearing the Santa Fe Collection. The looks were inspired by Navajo prints and southwestern American classics. 

Oh, those ads captured my fashion heart.

Darlings, It’s that time of year when ghosts, goblins and ghouls are scurrying about, looking for some tasty treats. With Halloween nearing and that crisp chill in the air, it gets me thinking about fashions that warm up my senses.

I want cozy coats, in rich colors, with velvety textures, and shoes and accessories in pops of color as bright as the autumn leaves. Continue Reading

Darlings, whenever I think of fall, I think of the movie When Harry Met Sally. With Harry Connick Jr.’s soundtrack in the background, New York’s Central Park and the Metropolitan Museum of Art play essential roles in setting the mood. Brilliant colored leaves, diffused afternoon lighting and Sally’s chunky sweater and tweed blazer always make me yearn for fall. Why, I can almost smell the Pumpkin Spice wafting through the chilly air. Continue Reading

Darlings, when I read cardigans were making a comeback, I thought, did they ever go out of style? Every fashion girl I know over the age of 50 must own a few, and if you’re like me, you’ve kept your favorites for years.

Cardigans are a timeless classic that never goes out of style.
