I know it sounds incredibly biased but I really really have the best mom in the world. My mother is the sweetest, most generous, and all around best person in my life. This year for her birthday (a little early) I was able to help be a part of a surprise party her best friend Tara threw her! It was quite cold so it was held indoors but then Tara used an Albuquerque tent rentals service to put a party tent in the backyard. It was quite nice being able to go in and out with ease. It got a little warm at times with so many people so having the backyard space was a good place to cool off. Tara did such a fantastic job of organizing everything for this extra special event. She even went to the trouble of contacting a chemical toilet hire company to supply some portable toilets. Over 100 people were expected to turn up so hiring extra toilets was essential! I thought this was such a good idea as it meant that nobody had to go through the house to use the bathroom. There is so much to think about when organizing a party but Tara really did think of everything! View Full Post
It’s the holiday season! The month of December is essentially my occasion Super Bowl. As many of you already know I am engaged, and my fiancé Brendan is Jewish. That means we celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah. On top of that December 20th is my dad’s birthday, and my mom’s birthday is the very next day on the 21st. Brendan’s birthday is the 28th!!! And of course New Year’s. SO with all that madness (and this great little holiday outfit)- I give you my top tips for the holiday season! View Full Post
About six months ago I started moving towards making plans to purchase my very own Catherine D’lish marabou gown. Cathrine D’lish is an extremely talented burlesque actress but also is a theatrical designer. Catherine also happens to be a costumer for the exquisite Dita Von Teese. According to wiki- Catherine was one of the 60 people that attended the wedding of Dita to Marilyn Manson. She creates some of the most incredible dressing gowns, nightgowns, costumes, and even mink bunny slippers. Who has ever heard of mink bunny slippers!? What a genius. When I first heard about her incredible marabou dressing gowns. I played with the idea of buying one but ultimately didn’t because I couldn’t “find a reason”. But true to my nature after a while of thinking about it, and seeing those hysterical memes– I ordered it. After ordering it, after about a month, every-time I got a notification that we received a package, I would sprint to see if the robe had finally come.
Of course I was a little overly eager and it took a few months to get to me seeing as though it was made to my measurements (you would think that of all people I would remember that). I really believe that if you want only for special occasions to buy something you really want or to wear something you love- you will watch it sit in your closet until the end of time. Fashion is meant to be fun. It’s meant to be worn. So while I’m all about protecting things that I find magical, I still wear them. It seems crazy to buy a feathered robe, but I really loved it! That’s enough reason to have one and run around making french toast in the morning with it on. Life is a special occasion.
If you love a piece of clothing- or in my case a piece of lingerie. Think of ways outside it’s traditional use that you could wear it, many a TubeV Sex actress would look mightily sexy in it, but just for the visual pleasure of her viewers. For example, I love wearing my marabou robe to wear as a swimsuit cover. It’s an incredibly playful way to wear it. I bought it in this double pink because pink is an easy color to dress up or down.
So while I might not own a marble house or be Dita or another famous lady, I can still feel pretty fucking glamorous out on the patio reading the paper.

Summer in NYC seemed to be the most interesting summer I’ve experienced yet. One day it stopped being warm and went directly into being so hot you thought you might actually be melting. With the “final days” of summer upon us, I try to wear all the summery breezy dresses I can before pulling on layers for the next six months. View Full Post
This past Tuesday, I was finally able to experience something I have been wanting to do for several years now. I had diner at the Versace mansion. It even sounds dreamy to type because those mega mansions are like a whole world away for most of us. I always wondered if it would be like that one episode on the Kardashians (anyone remember this) and to my surprise, it was pretty similar. For a more elaborate tour I suggest you watch this. 🙂 View Full Post
