Its definitely a case of global consciousness that the Speed Dealers are back. My first appreciation for these very questionable sunglasses came when I discovered Stephanie Zinone AKA Michelle Pfieffer in Grease 2 when I was old enough to know I wanted a Cool Rider. Stolen Girlfriends Club sent me a great pair of their modernized dealers for Christmas last year and I havent taken them off since. I also find myself drawn to the sunglass stands at Walgreens and various gas stations on my travels which could either be a really good or a really bad thing. Either way, I think these wrap arounds are back in a big way so just make sure you don’t accessories with a bumbag and gold tooth.

New Girls are a dime a dozen in this city but sometimes you come along the rare faces and personalities behind them that really make you stand up and listen. Sarah Brannon is one of those girls. Her new shaggy black cut, 5’11″ (which in this world means 6′) fresh from Memphis, Tennessee, Sarah has been modeling full time in NY just a few weeks and is sure to have an interesting season.

Currently on the hunt for a great vintage faux fur leopard coat. A little 60′s, a little rough around the edges, a little wrong but oh so right. Perfect for fall days and obligatory iconic black and white photos you can show your kids.

Something I’ve figured out as I have got older is that I really am a bit of a tomboy at heart. Don’t get me wrong, I love nothing more than an LBD and a great pair of pumps, its just the ease of a great pair of trousers or a suit with a simple mens shirt that can make you feel a little stronger, a little cooler and more in control. Maria Bradley shares a similar sentiment and style, so no matter the shoot or show, she brings that certain presence to the table. Below is proof that you can also be a sexy tomboy – a little extra skin, suits in luxe satin a classic pair of gold hoops (borrowed from my mother) and you can bring a the perfect hint of femininity to the androgyny.

I styled the very talented Ana Khouri last month with Alex Nataf for her new project UNCONDITIONAL. Ana is truly one of a kind in the ever growing fine jewelry world with her own set of rules, preferring not to follow the intensifying seasonal schedule, instead, creating and releasing collections at her own pace. A business model I think is truly progressive, sustainable and admirable and perhaps one of the reasons that after 12 years of growth, her designs are still in demand at major retailers (including Barneys New York and Net-a-Porter) and worn by industry leaders, key influencers and of course the necessary sprinkling of the coolest kind of celebrity clientele.
