A Shoe-In For Fall

November 09, 2011 | by Nadia Dabbakeh

  I’m of the adage that shoes are works of art; why else do you think I spend so much time sitting in front of my shoe shelves and admiring the stilettos, platforms and peep-toe pumps? I’m just happy that someone else realizes that as well. That someone is Toronto, Canada’...

The Color of the Year!

June 02, 2010 | by Susan Posnick

 As a Sagittarian, turquoise is always near and dear, so when I heard it was named color of the year by Pantone for 2010, my heart warmed…after the past years’ slump and a relatively soft, neutral palette in both fashion and makeup, I feel that we all need some brightening up! ...
