Is it cowboy-style back in vogue?

I’ve been seeing brands I love joining the western-style bandwagon– for example, Versace and I can’t help but wonder: Do I wanna be a cowboy? I remember years ago doing the double-denim look, I liked it and I rocked it a couple of times while traveling. Back then I used to live in the Caribbean and I was wearing speedos every day. I can’t be a cowboy, I love my hair too much to cover it with a hat but here’s my approach to an urban cowboy in Soho, New York. Breaking down the outfit: The jacket is Coach The jean shirt is Guess The belt is ASOS The jeans are Versace The boots are Ankari-Floruss the rings and necklace are Versace

The St. Regis Snow Polo in Aspen

Even when the temperatures drop below zero you still wanna look cute or at least try. This winter I was invited by The St. Regis to attend the glamorous and exciting World Snow Polo Championship celebrated in Aspen, Colorado. It’s the only Snow Polo event that takes place in the United States so it’s kind of a big deal. I was only in Aspen for 3 nights and I brought 3 pieces of luggage– since it is all about winter jackets, winter boots, chunky knits… and fur.  I can’t picture myself in the city walking around like Kramer with a big fluffy, but chic, coat… I brought my A-game to Aspen… Credits include, but aren’t limited to Ferragamo to Armani, Zegna and Coach, Canada goose and Etro… I prefer to wear outfits and outwear that are more of a conversation starter. Here they are– I hope they inspire your winter looks. Some of them are very casual like the first one, and the others are coming straight from the runway, and although they are on …

The Gancini Mocassin

Change is a part of life. It’s inevitable. the trees don’t apologize when they change, so why should I? Finally, the temperature is dropping and I can layer. Fall in New York is my favorite season, I never knew how much I loved cold weather until I learned how to dress for it. I have to be honest, it took me a while. I blame it on the fact that I was born and raised in the Caribbean. Here’s my first official Fall look. I hope you love it as much as I do. The stars of this look are the mocassins, made of soft ostrich leather. They’re a modern version of the classic moccasin with thick grip tread rubber sole. Decorated with metal Gancini, this is the ideal style to wear with casual outfits both in and out of town. 

Five For Fall

Is it too early to be thinking of Fall? Perhaps it is. and since it is 90 degrees outside and the sun is shining, we might have a few more weeks to think about swapping our wardrobes. BUT, since Fall is my favorite season, I am already looking for the perfect pieces to add to my wardrobe— key items that I will wear for strolls in the central park and to shoot in Soho’s famous cobblestone streets. So, to answer my first question, I have to say no, it is not too early. You definitely want to sport the newest collections first and get ahead of your game. As a fashion enthusiast, layering is my absolute favorite thing to do and fall is the best season for it. Here are some of my favorite fall pieces from Canali. If you haven’t heard of them yet— they’ve been around in the game for about 80 years, with their renowned suits, not only in Italy but around the world.   A Fresh black turtleneck A turtleneck is an essential piece …
