Floral Appliqués

  • 4th May 2013

We already know that petals are prolific this season.  But some of our favorite spots for flower power are not the usual standbys, but rather sunglasses, motorcycle gloves and sneakers.

  • 20th April 2013

The much anticipated private album of rare snaps that we featured months ago, is finally out.  With the release of Audrey in Rome we absolutely must do a few ‘Steal this Look’ posts.  Where better to start, than with the front cover?

à la Mod, Part Deux

  • 18th April 2013

Styling references to the ’60s dominate spring fashion, so we’ll take a quick look at the how to’s in hair, and ways to ‘mod-ify’ any outfit with prime accessories.

60s hair how to

60s hair how to

The first step is always a good volumizing spritz to the hair roots.

Use an oversized round brush to blow-dry hair big and voluminous.

Center-part hair.

Divide the hair on the crown of head into three equal sections.  Two front sections (see picture above) and one back section.

For the back section, use 2-3 inch pieces turn-by-turn and back-comb with a fine-toothed comb.

Using your fingers to gently tousle, pull back the back-combed sections together midway down your head and cinch.  This should have created a little uplift at the crown.   Tease the two front sections to add a touch of volume.  Keep the center part, or arrange as a dramatic side-part. Cinch the two front sections in the back as well and voila!

If You’re Heading to…Maui

  • 15th March 2013

Hike Into the Bamboo Forest

When the wind sweeps through the trees Maui’s Bamboo Forest sounds like a cacophony of high-heeled shoes engulfing you, yet if you are lucky there are no other hikers (and definitely no stilettos) in sight.  It’s spectacular, intensely green and the end-note is a breathtaking waterfall.


Bamboo Forest Maui


The hike is neither hard nor long, but it is dirty, (squelchy) and reaching the waterfall up-close requires scrambling through rocky streams and getting quite wet!


Bamboo Forest Maui



If you are staying in Wailea, don’t let the drive scare you.  The road to Hana is definitely winding, and often one lane, but the views are spectacular, raw and truly untouched.



Once you’re rested, you might be pondering ways to infuse a little bamboo into your daily routine?  Some ideas…

A Little Tom Ford, A Little Lenny Kravitz and a Whole Lot of Cool

  • 24th January 2013

When someone as unabashedly sexy as Lenny Kravitz gives you the top ten things he cannot live without (thank you Elle Décor) you take note…when he gives you his must-have scent you run to try it immediately hoping it’s transformative…Well, it is! Rich tonka bean, sweet vanilla and earthy wood-sap linger the way only tobacco can.  On a woman it’s truly unexpected and absolutely perfect.  Pair it with Tom Ford’s seasonal cat-eye sunglasses (Nikita) and instantly upgrade any spring outfit.
