Claire’s Life: How I Prepare for Fashion Week

So Fashion week/month is upon us…and I go hard! I’ve been covering the US/European circuit for at least 4 years now, and what can I say? It’s a grueling, trying time. The show/party/travel schedule is off the chain, writing is exhausting, and dealing with the personalities sometimes requires Herculean efforts. Here are a few things I do to prepare for the Olympics of the style world. 1. Rest up Doesn’t this bed look comfy? I take it super easy in…

The Bomb Life Miami Travel Guide: Where to Eat, What to Do, Where to Stay

Ok, so I’m not well versed in writing travel guides…and these will be far from exhaustive! That said, I thought I’d offer my thoughts on where to stay, what to do, and what to see in several cities. First up: Miami! 1. Where to stay. I stayed at The Standard for my most recent trip to Miami. A good friend of mine loved it there and sang its praises, so I booked. The positives: a gorgeous pool, world class spa…

Australia Style Diary: A Christopher Kane Striped Tee, Helmut Lang Asymmetrical Skirt, and Altuzarra Booties

Shirt: Christopher Kane// Skirt: Helmut Lang// Shoes: Altuzarra // Jewelry: Topshop This shoot was such a feat to pull off! First, the items I really wanted to wear didn’t arrive (I ordered from Ssense, what a nightmare!! Honestly, if I can avoid them in the future, I will). So I just had to roll with it. Second, I wanted to get a view of the Opera House, but we decided to shoot on December 31st, so most open, beautiful city…

I’m Going to Sydney, Australia!

I’m going to Sydney, Austrlia for the holidays! I think this could definitely qualify as a crazy adventure for several reasons: 1. I don’t know anyone there. 2. I don’t really have a plan. 3. I will basically be traveling alone! That said, I do have a couple friends who will be in town, so should be able to link up with them. And if anything…I’ll be in Australia!! It’s summer over there now, so I’m preparing my skin for…

4 Unexpected Yet Delicious Restaurants in Paris

So, I’ll be honest: while I’m traveling, I generally don’t have a ton of time to document all my experiences. But now that I’m back home, I thought it as good as time as any to let you in on a few fabulous restaurants I’ve stumbled across in one of my second homes, Paris. Ready? 1. Azabu. 3 Rue André Mazet, 75006 Paris. Métro: Odéon, Mabillon, Saint-Michel. I wasn’t a fan of Japanese food until I came to this restaurant.…

Paris Fashion Week Spring 2014: Zara Shirt, Peter Pilotto Fall 2013 Red, Black, and White Skirt, and Gianvito Rossi Bicolor Pumps

So I’ve found a new silhouette that works for me: button down shirts and knee length skirts! Granted, I’m busty. So finding that perfect button down that doesn’t pucker is an issue. I’ve also been traveling, which means that while normally I’d get something tailored or add a few snaps, abroad, c’est pas possible. So the top pictured is by Zara. I paid about $50 for it. And while it looks fine in pictures, the quality leaves a lot to…
