Mad Hatter

Ever since Pharrell’s hat became a household name, I’ve been on the hunt to find something like it.  A fan of both his music and style, this is one trend that I just had to imitate.  After looking all over the internet for something similar, my cart (and head) still remained empty.  However, while out and about in Williamsburg recently, I struck gold at a nearby boutique.  I couldn’t be happier with my purchase and plan to rock this look all season long.

Spring Flurry

Spring has finally sprung in New York City and I couldn’t be happier.  Here in Williamsburg where I reside, the streets and parks have turned into a flurry of white flowers, blooming from tree-to-tree.  In keeping with my environment, I’m excited to be sporting a spring favorite-white-on-white.  Turning in my bold black looks for something a little softer sounds like a great idea.

8th Annual Indepdendent Handbag Designer Awards

With less than a week away, the preliminary judging panel will be meeting here in New York this coming Sunday to determine finalists for the 8th Annual IHDA (Independent Handbag Designer Awards).  I’m happy to report that I will be on the panel this year, yet again.  I can not wait to see what designers have in-store for us. Along with discovering new names, what tends to really excite me are those who create beautifully crafted bags that bring originality to the market.  If you haven’t entered, there’s still time to apply.  Curious to see which bags standout?  Follow the #HandbagAwards, myself and the others via Instagram & Twitter to stay up-to-date.

Denim Days

I’ve always been a fan of denim and lately I seem to be digging it a lot.  Working in a creative field allows for the dress code to be a bit more relaxed.  Whether I’m in a rush or not feeling my best, I tend to count on the most comfortable denim in my wardrobe to get me through the day.  Among my go-to slacks and shirts, I’m looking forward to rocking my favorite denim jackets this season.  A blast from the past, the runways were full of them replacing the basic blazer.

Block Party

I happened to be in the West Village for some meetings last Thursday and forget how beautiful this part of the city is.  Lucky to have had some down time in-between, I walked around with photographer friend Jocelyn Voo to snap some photos of my look.  Speaking of my outfit, I have to give a #mylatestobsession shout out to Banana Republic.  The peacoat and shirt I’m wearing are from their Spring 2014 collection. For me, these two particular pieces really stood out as must-haves for the season. If you’re interested in purchasing, I suggest you run to the nearest BR store as I believe the coat is pretty much sold out everywhere.  Good luck & happy spring-let the awakening begin!

Strap On

With the F/W season almost through, I’m very much looking forward to a bit of change and less layers in my daily routine.  In the meantime, I’ve been trying to keep warm on the streets of New York with some of my favorite outerwear.  I haven’t been able to live without a topcoat.  For a professional like myself, it’s a great go-to piece to throw on over any look that might need structure.  Those who feel a bit basic in this style coat, strap on a fun colored or textured belt you might already have in your wardrobe to add some shape.

It seems like yesterday we were just getting a glimpse at S/S 2014 previews, and in less than 24 hours, the famous fashion gates at Lincoln Center will reopen yet again.  I don’t know about you, but with the type of winter we’ve been having, I’m not really looking forward to another season with lots of layering just yet. With that said, for those of you who will be glued to your computer screen all week long, don’t forget to Like & Follow The styleTV Channel to get your all-access pass to go backstage with our very own Josh McBride.  In the meantime, check out & share this cool video we put together for you to get even more excited about.

#Mylatestobsession-Shauns Shades

I recently checked out Shauns Shades S/S 2014 collection at The Modern at MOMA.  Raising my hand to admit I have an obsession with sunglasses, I fell in love with their Earlsferry in a matte camo green finish. Not only did they fit my face perfectly, but the Carl Zeiss lenses made my view picture perfect.  The LA-based eyewear brand also gives back in a big way with their “Give Sight” commitment.  When you purchase a pair, it triggers one more pair of glasses to be given to someone in need.  To learn more, check out styleTV’s recent interview with the designer Shaun Paterson and supermodel Chanel Iman here.
