The End of My Love Affair with the Leather Spa: Jim’s Shoe Repair is the Best in New York City

The Leather Spa is a New York City institution. Scores of well heeled fashionistas go there to resole their Christian Louboutin stilettos, rescue stained bags, and resuscitate their shoes. I was one of those Leather Spa Lovers until today. I was blessed by the good Lord with a pair of calves that cut a cute form in summer dresses! But when it comes to winter boots, they don’t fit in–literally. I have been using The Leather Spa for years to…

My Spring 2018 Lust List: A Rolex DateJust Watch, Gucci Logo Swimsuit, and a Balmain Blazer

It’s been a while since I’ve done my lust lists! I stopped because I noticed some readers (hey y’all!) would buy an outfit right from under my nose before I was ready to splurge! And the list seemed indulgent and slightly narcissistic (but what isn’t slightly narcissistic these days?). At any rate, this month I decided to create one anew because I realized that whatever I write down or visualize eventually becomes mine. So without further ado, a few high…

The Bomb Life New York Shop: New Express Tailor on 92 Rivington (Good, But Don’t Expect Same Day)

Any fashionista worth her salt knows the importance of tailoring. Clothes look the best when they fit, and alterations can uplift any look!

Nothing fancy, at all, but they are professional, capable, and best of all, able to make alterations same day. I actually wrote this before they took my garments at 9:30 am…
