Just when we’d all gotten our nude lip color just right, black lips are back. Let’s face it, we all went through a Goth phase for a week or two (or was that just me?). But black lips are nothing new. In fact, the first mention of black lipstick can be traced back to ancient Egypt, around 4000 BC. Apparently, Egyptian women (and men) were not afraid to make a bold color statement with make up. In Hollywood’s heyday of […]
I don’t understand what all the fuss is about over Amal Clooney’s gloves at the Golden Globes. Queen Elizabeth I was the first person to make long gloves fashionable and a status symbol in the 16th Century. Today, they are still a symbol of formality, femininity and fashion, not to mention affluence. Opera gloves are also a stylish and clever way to disguise overly thin arms, which might have been another reason for the accessory in this case. Another historical fact, my […]
Just got these beautiful images of Katie and Paul’s Shelter Island wedding from Craig Paulson. So much better than the ones I snapped with my iphone. So intimate and personal. I can’t help but smile as I look at these….Invitation design and printing by Swiss Cottage Designs
As a child, I used to pretend there were fairies living in my garden. And just recently, my 9 year old daughter confessed that she sometimes thinks she can almost see them. Well, if ever there was proof that flower fairies really exist, here it is.
Just finished another wedding at The New York Public Library and realized I never posted photos of the last one.

Getting dressed, with a little help from Maid of Honor and sister. First Look: Followed by photos around the library followed by family photos on the front steps of the Library. […]

At long last, photos from Minh-Thu and Jim’s wedding this past July at Buttermilk Falls Inn and Spa.

I’ve got to share a new resource for wedding hair. http://www.dmhair.com David just got back from 8 months on tour with Miley Cyrus who, as we all know, has fabulous hair. Not only is he incredibly talented but he’s also a doll. Sweet and polite and couldn’t be more professional. No attitude – really, none at all. He’s a wiz at extensions and frankly, at creating great hair do’s for brides who are looking for something beyond typical wedding hair. His […]
