By now, fashionable life readers know Tommy is a good friend and CT neighbor. I adore most of his collections and think his finger is always on the pulse. This spring is no different…..this preppy collection has a little more edge than usual and clearly represents his move to attract a younger, hipper consumer. I get the motivation. This girl could easily be on the arm of one of my boy’s who they would proudly bring to meet me for lunch….and yes, I would approve because at least she has style!  Go TH!   www.tommy-usa.com.

Frankly, Fashion Week has been a big yawn. The new venue at Lincoln Center looks like the Virgin Atlantic first class lounge. So commercial and over the top…..not my style at all. Anyway, the real news to me is that belts, bags and shoes will be THE MOST important items in the spring. All easy accessories that can change an outfit. This outfit from the Michael Kors Spring 2011 show today, reveals this trend best. Leave it to our man MK to lead the troops….believe me, everyone will follow so every price will be well represented this spring.

My buddy, my friend and yes, my plastic surgeon, Dr. Cap Lesesne, has just announced his new beautiful operating theater at his Park Avenue office in New York City. This state of the art facility is THE place you want to go for plastic and reconstructive surgery. Also, he is a great guy, Princeton and Duke grad with affiliations at the major hospitals in New York City. If you have not embarked down this road yet, call for a consultation soon. You will be happy to have your face, or whatever,  in his hands!

Tell him we sent you! www.caplesesne.com

The Best in Buckles

These Michael Kors sandals are a great example of the season trend in shoes. Buckles, gladiator style, zipped up the back and smokin high heel is what jumped off MK’s runway for fall. These beauties are a little pricey at $1295 (I know!!!) but look for the same features in a  different price point and step out in style. I personally will continue to dream about these!


Shearling, a ling, ling

Our friends at WHO WHAT WEAR DAILY always impress us with their fashion knowledge and complete coverage. The trend of the shearling jacket is a prime example of that! Yes, shearling coats are back on the scene this season in all shapes, sizes and price points. These furry little jackets were seen on every major runway and is certainly a staple in the Burberry Collection…SO….if Christopher Baily, the creative genius behind the label says it’s a trend, then, stop, listen and definitely learn. He is  a “shear” genius!

Shoe Protection

How chic is this shoe bag? It holds up to 6 pairs of shoes and if you have an assistant or valet carrying all this for you, the fantasy suddenly looks even better! No seriously, we all spend too much $ on our shoes and we need to protect them whenever we travel. I think this bag from bodhibags is the best modern version of the shoe bag. I think I might invest and feel like a fashionable jetsetter. It could happen! www.bodhibag.net or www.nordstroms.com  $528

Okay, I was born in January and my parents did give me an unusual “J” first name for which I am grateful, but I would have done anything to have been called January! Lucky Miss January Jones got a little more fairy dust from the big man upstairs than me and she got some serious talent too! Her gown last night showed off all these assets! DonatellaVersace knew her customer and created a fabulous electric blue asymmetrical gown that jumped off the red carpet. There was so much detail on her gown, that her stylist was brilliant in keeping her hair and jewelry choices very simple. It’s a shame Don Draper can’t see her finer side!
