This Week – Come Get Your Cosmetic Goodie Bag!

We are so in love with our Customer Appreciation Bag and the deluxe beauty samples packed inside that Barneys is offering it this week, starting Thursday, September 23 and ending Saturday, September 25th. The olives and greens in the print are so of the moment. It complements everything on our fall lust list! Come by […]

Out All Night

This being my first time attending Fashion’s Night Out at Barneys, I wasn’t sure what to expect. But after the crowds cleared out, and my shopping fix had been fulfilled, I came out feeling a bit more enlightened. Manicurist extraordinaire Deborah Lippman chatted with me about what’s hot for Fall in the world of nail […]

What A Joya!

Two weekends ago, Cindy and I stopped by the Ace Hotel to celebrate the launch of the Elements Showcase – a trade show for niche lifestyle fragrances. We had a good time mingling with the members of the advisory board and other supporters of the showcase. Frederick, the creator of Joya, was one of the […]

Hourglass Femme Rouge

A Gemini through and through, there are two sides to me in all aspects of my life. One day I’ll feel like dressing head to toe in black, the next I’ll be the brightest dressed on the subway. This split personality even trickles down to my beauty regimen. It’s quite exhausting deciding between my dual […]

Eve Lom

My latest obsession – Eve Lom cleanser. I use it morning and night – it takes of everything (even stubborn water proof mascara).  The whole cleansing and massage ritual with the muslin cloth seems ridiculous – but quite honestly it works.  It helps exfoliate and open pores.  And like a quick DIY facial without the […]


I was five years old the first time I saw a photo of my mother dancing with my Grandfather in a dusty-pink, satin cocktail dress.  It was strapless with a full bubble-skirt and she had worn it to her engagement party at The Eden Roc Hotel on Miami Beach in 1960, with silk pumps the […]

The New Product Hound

Matthew and Andrew, the owners and creators of lifestyle treatment brand Malin + Goetz have two special canines in their lives, Bob and Junior. In fact, they have a page on their site dedicated to Bob and Junior, as well as to other pups of their employees + customers. Recently, my pup Milky secured her […]

Colbert MD

I’m obsessed about clean skin. . . and love using foaming cleansers, face scrubs and peels. That is why my favorite product right now is the Colbert MD Intensify Facial Discs.  They are so easy to use.  And I love the mild tingly sensation that happens when I leave it on for 10 minutes.  You […]

Scent of a Woman

I often get asked what perfume I’m wearing.  More often then not, I get a confused look when I share the name of the fragrances as they’re usually exclusive to Barneys.  Not everyone has heard of Frederic Malle, or Le Labo, or Byredo…but without fail, these fragrances turn heads. Case in point, this past weekend […]

Holy Aliens!!

My very first buying trip in Women’s Designer back in 2004 is especially memorable for a couple of reasons.   Dries Van Noten had a dinner party for 500 guests to celebrate his 50th show and the dinner table was transformed into a runway!  Everyone had a front row seat!  I also remember my first Undercover […]
