On a frigid day in January, as the economy continues to darken, my favorite magazine folds and glum news clogs the headlines, I decide to begin a style blog. What am I, crazy? Maybe. But I believe as long as you have to dress, decorate, eat and entertain, you may as well do it with style. So kick off your boots, girls, and turn up the stereo. Pour a big glass of red wine, grab your laptop, sink into your cushy sofa and forget the outside world exists. I've spent a lifetime reading, writing, shopping, designing and opining and I'm going to share my finds, tips and tricks with you. Enjoy!
