Gift Wrapped

I don't know what it is about this time of year that really gets me in the mood for plaids. Maybe it's the constant sites of gift wrapping paper and decorations all around that somehow tempts me into wrapping myself in the holiday's best plaids. My closet is quickly being taken over, as it does every year, with the tartan and checked goodness - all it's missing is a big bow!

Big Moves

Meet the newest addition to the family... Pete! Ha, only kidding but this beast - which belongs to a neighbor of mine - is pretty damn cute huh?! I'm in full on casual mode in one of my favorite pieces from the Todd Snyder x Champion collaboration to start off my busy week of last minute Christmas shopping and errands as I prepare to make some big moves this weekend! 

LOTW: Last Minute Shoppers

If you're like me, you are just now getting to that dreaded holiday shopping that we all must do no matter how big or small your list of family and friends you are buying for is. There's nothing like some last minute pressure to help you make decisions on just what to buy. Luckily, East Dane helped me out with choosing some of the perfect gifts for all the guys on my list. Hopefully the Look of the Week will help you too!

Every once in a while I get the funniest emails and comments about recent posts... everything from asking where to buy a certain piece I'm wearing to criticizing the "color combo agenda" I'm pushing. Seriously. I can't make this stuff up! I take it all with a grain of salt but really do appreciate every hearing from readers good or bad... but I especially love the ones like this weeks informing me of my very "Lumbersexual" appeal lately! 

Modern Classics

I'm really loving my neighborhood these days. Living in New York City is great and all but it is really all about balance for me being a former Texan! I love being just on the cusp of the action but not directly in the middle of it like I did when I first moved to this city. It may just be that I'm older [err, wiser!] but living in the Upper West Side, just half a block from Central Park, is my favorite nook of the city lately.
