Posh Celebs! Ryan Gosling

This is a gratuitous post, somewhat for kicks. But Ryan Gosling in 'Crazy Stupid Love' killed it for men's fashion.  I wish more American Men (outside of NYC and LA--to some extent) took the care to dress themselves that his character did.  Life is so much more fun and interesting when it's not in pleated khakis, polos or oversized jeans. Favorite Quote: 'Be better than the Gap.' Stay Posh!

Posh Style! Hat Attack

I am having a hat moment right now and I loved this look.  I basically love anyone who looks cool without trying. She nails it.  Stay Posh!

Posh Possessions! Statement Coat

I am obsessed with my new coat. It's stylish, unique and functional which isn't always easy to find in a coat. Apparently, Halle and I have the same taste in great coats. *Sic* Stay Posh!

Posh Celebs! Joan Smalls

It's been a while since a model has come along that I find as interesting as Naomi.  Enter Joan Smalls.  She nails being alluring, classy (still important ladies) and casually beautiful with one look.  Recently, she was featured in a editorial spread shot by Karl Lagerfeld for Haper's.  Stay Posh!

Posh Beauty! NARS Tinted Moisturizer

It's here!  Apparently this was in heavy rotation during NYFW.  I am very excited to try it.  I wanted to love Laura Mercier's tinted moisturizer because of all of the rave reviews.  The coverage/wearability were phenomenal but the breakout was not.  I am hoping to have better luck with this since I always have good luck with NARs. PS this article says it all.  Stay Posh!

Posh Style! Street Style NYFW Pt. 1

Hello Poshinistas! Life has been so hectic and alas no time to post.  Returning from a fabulous 2 day trip to NYC post the fashion week fanfare, I was inspired to post a few of my favorite street style looks from the week that was.  I wish I could have been there but alas had to watch from the sidelines via Haper's Bazaar...Stay Posh!

Posh Style! Hat Attack

So many things right about this picture.  The hat, the lip and the crisp white shirt.  I love classic femininity. Captured here to perfection. Stay Posh!

Posh Obsessions! NARs 413 BLKR

My last trip to NY was amazing. After much prodding, I finally convinced my Mom to meet me there.  I'm often in NYC, but rarely as a tourist.  So, it was fun to explore the city with her doing just that--being a tourist.  We took in the major sights--the top of that stair thingy in Times Square, the Statue of Liberty and the top of the Empire State Building. Epic.

On our last day, I dragged her to my monuments, the Carrie Bradshaw townhouse, Jimmy Choo and of course the NARs store at 413 Bleecker.  Enter the NARs 413 BLKR collection. Died.  It totally captured the essence of that store and experience. I  will definitely add this to the collection.  I am loving the  larger than life gloss and shadow.  Stay Posh!

Posh Style! Winter Blues or Whites

We have been experiencing an unseasonably warm winter here.  Its cold..its warm. Who can keep up. I can count on two hands the number of times I've needed a coat. This is turning my thoughts to Spring. Already.  Despite my best wishes.

In honor of this spring tease, here is a picture of Solange Knowles that captures everything that excites me about impending Spring fashion. Bold lip, crisp white and fun patterns. Stay Posh!

Posh Style! Leather Skinnies

I love this rock and chic look.  She's totally channeling the irreverence of Axel Rose (the first version) with a very grown up Celine bag in hand. Everything. No rock and chic look is complete without leather skinnies.  Revolve has cataloged a few of the best looks here. Stay Posh!

Hello Celine!

Posh Style! Most Stylish Super Bowl Ads

So, no I didn't make it all the way through the whole Super Bowl game. Does that make me un-American?  I opted instead for the SATC marathon on E! Nonetheless, a few of the ads did catch my attention.  Here are two of the most stylish. Stay Posh!
