Spring has sprung, and with it a million good looking people have sprung out of their winter clothes. And, as the men strip off their heavy coats, and the women have their feet sloughed and painted, I find myself watching with envy. Mating season has started up again. More
The Spring 2012 collections have begun with bridal. After sifting through all the looks–from wedding day heavyweights like Vera Wang, Monique Lhullier and Oscar de la Renta–we’ve come up with a few of our favorites and categorized them according to mood: classic, romantic, modern. By which we mean: More

Spring is finally upon us, and I know I’m not alone in my desire to slough off the black-on-grey-on-black look that has defined my wardrobe for the past few months. However, I’m not willing to fall into the ubiquitous “florals for spring” trap yet again; something new needs to happen. One thing that attacked the runway this season was head-to-toe bright, monochromatic color. Although this might seem too extreme to translate into your closet, there are definitely ways to make it look fierce and innovative. Be careful though, lest you wind up looking like a remnant of the Cubist movement.
The Dutch painter Piet Mondrian may have been a pioneer in non-representational art in Paris in the early 20th century. But far too often, his influence is terribly visible in wardrobes today. Although his work is art, Mondrian’s work should hang on your walls, not your body. Just say no to neo-plasticism. More
Cecil Beaton, 1948
I just really like Cecil Beaton this week. Maybe I’ll only post him forever now. I don’t know! I might! But then Richard Avedon would be sad, right? Sad from beyond the grave about not being prominently featured on TheGloss every week? Maybe Richard Avedon should have done more gentle, feminine portraits of women in pastels, huh? Maybe it sucks to be Richard Avedon. More
Just because it’s gray and snowy outside (or so I hear) doesn’t mean you have to settle for colorlessness in your satchel. The vibrant green of this Michael Kors bag will remind you that soon, life will begin anew, flowers will bud and grass will once again start to grow.
Who knew that a bag could be so life-affirming? I guess this is what we have to look forward to in 2011.
It’s beautiful out. Here are some tunes to go with the season and put you in the mood for the weekend. What songs always put you in the mood for spring? Post them in the comments!
I am smitten with a new piece of arm candy. No, it’s not a man: It’s Carla Mancini‘s gorgeous top zipper satchel – It’s a darling spring yellow (it comes in other colors, but yellow IS the color of the … More
It ain’t Spring without sandals, and you don’t have a complete wardrobe of spring shoes until you have Birkenstocks. (Or, as my mom calls them, “birkies”.) I have to say though, I’ve always found birkies to be more of a … More
After a flight that will go down in the annals of annoyance, I am finally home – and going through some of my favorite new acquisitions. I LOVE the Nantucket Jacket from DownEast Basics. It’s shown here in blue, but … More
I’m loving the “Lily” clutch from Lodis (and not only cause it shares a name with my gorgeous shih-tsu!), versatile enough to go anywhere – from the red carpet to a night on the town. Shown in azure, fuchsia, lemon, … More
A return to the A-Line, double breasted style. Quite gorgeous and very sixty-ish which we are seeing so much of lately. It seems that the sixties are returning with a vengeance. I wonder if the mod hairstyles and makeup will … More
Flower-Heel Mary Jane Sorry, but that’s what I thought the minutes I spotted these shoes. But if I’m wrong, you can always leave me a note in the comments. You won’t change my mind, but fairs fair! Spotted Here … More
