I'm always looking for chic lifestyle and fashion statements.
Nothing makes more of a statement than having a sophisticated "idea resource" at my fingertips for days at the beach, nights on the town and dinner parties at home.
At your next get-together, unleash your inner fashionista. When the party heats up, bear your shoulders with a silk halter dress in vivid green. And bejewel yourself with a green and gold jeweled brocade bag that won't set your budget back, but will spring your inner princess forward.
Accessories are the DNA of lasting glamour, so who wants to be seen in something a million other women already own? Opt instead for a brass cameo bracelet by Michael Negrin, who creates vintage-inspired jewels made to help you feel like a Victorian queen. Or add a dazzling yet delicate multistrand pearl necklace to your gem collection. Wear it the way you do-with a cocktail dress-and you'll be the envy of all the "gem setters" at the party.
I'm forever collecting anti stress shoes. Shoes for meetings, shoes for the beach and shoes for parties. That's why I'm excited about the metallic snake-embossed sandal-a chain of jewels adds a touch of elegance, taking me seamlessly from day into night.
Glamour doesn't start and end with fashion. It extends to every aspect of life (it does for me, at least). A party is the perfect excuse to decorate, redecorate or simply add a few glam accents to your divine temple.
You can dive into anything from Asian-inspired embroidered decorative shams to a crystal candelabra with antique flair.
