Bring the Artist

One of the most rewarding perks of being the East-coast beauty Guru at Barneys New York is destination weddings. Particularly beach destinations.  In 5-star resorts.  With spas.  And infinity pools. Makeup for weddings is an intricate tapestry of contradictions; soft and natural, but with pop, light coverage that won’t move or fade, lips that are […]

Chipotle Day!

Business cards are a great networking tool but they also come in handy when a restaurant has a fishbowl that you drop your card into and win a free lunch for you & a few of your coworkers.

Celebrating Iman

Check out the NY Times article: “Iman: Not Just Another Pretty Face”


I’ve always thought that fashion and film go hand in hand (Marilyn’s white dress in The Seven Year Itch ring a bell?), and the newest collaboration between the Rodarte sisters and Rialto films is no exception.  For the 50th anniversary re-release of Jean-Luc Godard’s iconic film Breathless, Rodarte has created 4 limited-edition tees and 2 […]

Antique Jewelry

Over lunch with our Antique Jewelry expert Olivia Collings last week I was intrigued, as usual, by her rich and varied jewelry tales.  She drops names like Napoleon (we recently sold a bracelet given by him as a gift).  This past year she did the jewelry for the Young Victoria movie.  But even Olivia herself […]

Who is R13???

I’m not a denim obsessed kind of girl but I am LOVING R13. The collection’s got a rock ‘n roll vibe and each pair doesn’t feel like just another pair of jeans. The slouchy fit cropped style is my jean of choice this Spring. We don’t know much about the designer- he/she keeps his identity […]
