It's that time of year again -- Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The usual happenings are going on, from events such as Saks Fifth Avenue's Key to the Cure, pink products being sold with a portion of proceeds going to fight the cause, buildings lit up pink, and the list goes on. Breast cancer (and cancer in general) is an epidemic. Last year at this time, I wrote about my own mom and her fight with this horrible disease.

Of course, I keep praying that the cancer will ...Read more.

From the stunning venue and floral displays to the pretty favors and intimate ...Read more.

Tailored menswear with feminine flair has always been a key aspect of my personal style. Maybe it's my career history in public relations -- it's important to project a professional, efficient image! -- combined with 14 years of managing PR in the male-dominated high-tech industry, before I jumped ship to focus on my first love, fashion. Anyway, pin-striping and professional attire give me an extra boost of confidence. I love the fact that this menswear look is in the form of a dress vs. a traditional suit. And, these flats tho! I can't get enough. Not only are they unique and beautifully made, they're comfortable for ...Read more.
