The Recap And Fashion Drama of The RHONY Season 8: Ep 6

This episode of The Real Housewives of New York City begins with Sonja getting a massage and facial (of free sperm) from her gossipy massage/facialist therapist and simultaneously texting. There is nothing stopping her from texting. So relaxing. Getting ready for her birthday party. She’s wearing a towel so there isn’t much to talk about there. “John would never miss the opening of an envelope,” Sonja remarks lovingly. Now to Carole’s apartment where she has invited a psychic. Jules arrives looking skinny and chic with food from Eately which is ironic since Jules doesn’t eat. Then Dorinda arrives wearing a crazy bright silk poncho over and cameo Chanel bag which doesn’t match. Don’t worry, the poncho comes off to reveal a gray turtleneck! Of course, because she has to wear drab gray.

The Recap And Fashion Drama of The RHONY Season 8: Ep 5

There’s only one fight in this episode of The Real Housewives of New York City which is pretty tame. Anyway, we start with Bethenny and her assistant packing for her daughter Bryn. She has to pack everything in a carry on “shes a mini me,” brags Bethenny. She approves photos of potential outfits and edits (is that normal for a 6 year old? I just toss stuff in a suitcase for my kids). Now she wants a cross body bag like her momma. She’s a girlie girl. There was is no mention of where they are headed, but I assume it involves a plane.

Dorinda is meeting Carole who shows up wearing a drop-dead gorgeous coat. She had to get a new phone and does not know how to password protect it, so whoever found her old one got some sexy pics of her younger man.

The Recap And Fashion Drama of The RHONY Season 8: Ep 4

Here we go! I’m ready for Bethenny’s fall birthday party in the Hamptons on the Real Housewives Of New York. It’s nice to see Cookie is still around. Husband out, dog in.

Anyway, the fashion this week is casual…which I love! That’s when I assume none are using a stylist and I really get to see how they put themselves together. This week’s episode centers around a BBQ in the Hamptons and a brunch in the Hamptons – in the late fall.

The Recap And Fashion Drama of The RHONY Season 8: Ep 3

Drama Alert! After a cigarette break (who still smokes?) we are back to the bra fitting party – where we left off from last week on the Real Housewives of New York. Jules is going team Dorinda and not Bethenny because Dorinda got her on the show. Mistake. Anyway, these bra fitters are probably like “these bitches are wild animals.” The claws are out!

The Recap And Fashion Drama of The RHONY Season 8: Ep 2

This show could be renamed the Real Divorcees of New York except for Jules who is truly married (for now) but is a complete ditz. She can’t make coffee and is disgustingly thin. Her parenting and cooking segments are pathetic and boring. Doesn’t her husband know by now she can’t make coffee? “My husband loves me as long as I put the effort in. Morning time is family time! There’s not enough of me. My life is being the mother to three children.” Whatever. Until the nanny takes over. Honey, the only way you are getting back for another season is if you either go to a hospital for an eating disorder and they can make a story around that or if your husband cheats on you and even that didn’t help Kristen Taekman. Moving on.

The Recap And Fashion Drama of The RHONY Season 8: Ep 1

“Diamonds aren’t a girl’s best friend, martini’s are!” Seriously? And don’t fine wines get better with age? Not time. But Ramoaner ain’t gonna say the word “age” ever baby (especially now that she’s a cougar on the prowl. One with no game I might add). Who would want to draw attention to the fact they are the oldest person in the now 7 character Real Housewives of New York cast? And by characters I mean characters! Are these women for real? Yes. Yes they are.

That’s where the athletic line Lime & Vine comes in. The…

New York Fashion Week Spring '16: Ralph Lauren's Classic American Style With A Twist of Bold

Ralph Lauren‘s SS16 collection at New York Fashion Week swept me away! It featured looks that reflected the classic American style has made his name. The separates were strong, the day dresses were chic and feminine and the formal gowns that closed the show were subtle but show-stoppers in their own right.

New York Fashion Week Spring '15: I Could Have Danced All Night

While normally I focus on helping my readers look stylish from nine to five, the stuff of fashion dreams is normally worn between five and nine. Evening is the bread-and-butter of fashion. Art Directors and stylists love to shoot dream editorials. Fashion readers gobble up aspirational inspiration from the same. Take a peek at any proper fashion editor’s notes on…

Valentino Resort 2015 Collection

I thought it was such a brilliant idea for Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli to use the incredible and impeccable Frida Kahlo as an inspiration for Valentino resort. This collection really captured the spirit of Kahlo. They referenced parrots and monkeys, both of which appeared in some of her famous self-portraits. Pieces ranged from delicate frocks with colorful embroidered…
